Dish of the Year 2012

[Since I’m feeling too lazy to make the Golden Mango/Black Stool awards lists now…]

iliyasbhaiNever had I thought I’d feel this way about a restaurant chain, but Jafferbhai’s Delhi Darbar is the place the carnivore in me cannot have enough of. JBDD is the standard by which I judge all Mughlai restaurants, and though not everything they have excites me, their specialties are unparalleled in Mumbai. The food at all JBDD outlets tastes exactly the same because it is made in the same blessed place and then sent out to all their branches. Jafferbhai’s Delhi Darbar pride themselves on being “The Biryani Kings of Mumbai”, and rightfully so, and here’s Iliyasbhai (from the Lokhandwala JBDD which I frequent) with the dish he loudly and confidently orders for me as soon as I walk in – my favourite mutton preparation: Dum Ki Chop.

    Dude i heard Arsalaan has opened shop in Mumbai too .. you gotta track the store down and go for Biriyani there …. as you might know that Biriyani from Kolkata is also a heavy weight contender if not the winner for the best Biriyani title in India .

      In Andheri and Bandra, somebody just told me. Yeah, I’ve heard good things about their biryani!

      Please don’t even consider looking at reviews to eat in Arsalan. I have been to so many places in the world and had biryani but there’s nothing like Arsalan’s biryani. No dalda, wet with spices & meat cooked to perfection with the egg and potato making it filling! Kolkata is best for Mughlai food without a doubt!
      Another special recommendation is the Arsalan Special Kebab(mutton/chicken). The meat is perfectly cooked and is coated with baked yellow cheese. They also make very good kakori kebabs. The usual chaap is also very good.
