If you’re over restaurants that look tiringly the same, industrial/a little over the top/too loud, well, we’ve found the perfect place for you. Chor Bizzare in Bikaner House, Delhi is a must visit restaurant where you won’t just eat but have a wholesome experience.
The restaurant stands true to its name, Chor Bizarre. The unique items and pieces of decor in the restaurant are beautiful in their own way, one could even dare to say bizarrely so. Every piece of decor, furniture and light fixture, here is quirky. It is plainly obvious that the decorators had a purpose behind putting each one together. From the stained glass pedant lights, intricately carved wooden furniture to tables that look like four poster beds, everything gives a thrift shop like vibe to the whole place.
The amalgamation of weird and royal makes Chor Bizarre look and feel other-worldly, the weirdness is their uniqueness and it is like a breath of fresh air.
Chor Bizarre is known for its great North Indian menu and has created a niche in Kashmiri food. They have a wide variety of vegetarian as well as non vegetarian options to choose from, including starters such as chats and kebabs. Main course comprises of sabzis, breads, biryani, raita and salad. Their signature dish is a Kashmiri delicacy called “Tarami”. They also serve wonderful beverages and desserts that round up the menu.
We tried their vegetarian sampler, which was an assortment of various kebabs and it was really good, while the palak patta chat was average. For the main course, we opted for Mutter Mushroom and Dal Chor B'zar pairing it with Mirchi Garlic Naan and Laccha Parantha which were all more than just upto the mark. The Dal was especially good.
We also tried their signature dish- Tarami, an assortment of Kasmiri delicacies like Laal Paneer, Dum Aloo, Khatte Baingan, Nadru Yakhni, Haaq, Rajmah, Nadru Choorma and it is served with Rice, Mooli-Adrak Chutney, Tamatar, Mirch and Laal pyaaz. We absolutely loved it!
In beverages, we opted for the strawberry flavored Frozen Fruit Mockery, Masala Mint Mojito, the Adraki punch and Shikanjvi, each of which was refreshing. We also tried the desserts, Kashmiri phirni was melt in the mouth and the Kulfi looked and tasted amazing!
We would recommend rounding up the meal with the traditional Kashmiri Kahwa tea which is served steaming out of a kettle. Do visit Chor Bizarre if you’re looking for something new and amazing in food, ambiance and the overall experience.
