Italian diva – Ritu Dalmia’s fingers knows how to weave magic in the kitchen. After conquering hearts of foodies at Diva there was no looking back. As we all know, apart from opening many restaurants, she has also done menu for a few. And Depot 29 is one of them. Recently, the Mexican inspired comfort eatery has made some new additions to the menu. On knowing this, we could not hold our excitement and reached there to please our taste buds.
After getting spoiled with choices, we settled down with Root Vegetables and Jalapeno Empanadas served with Hunged Yogurt Dip. This fried surprise stuffed with goodness of root vegetables and jalapenos is a must-have.
Though I am not a fan of salads, but when it came highly recommended, I decided not to give it a miss. Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Mixed Leaves, Parmesan Cheese Shavings and Pine Nuts in a Honey Lemon Dressing was quite refreshing and now it comes highly recommended from yours truely.
Next on the table came Jackfruit Burger with Fried Plantain, Avocado Mash and Caramelized Onion with Fresh Watermelon Juice. The patty made up of jackfruit was quite a delight and the burger tasted the best with the fresh watermelon juice.
I was sceptical about trying the tacos as I am not a fan of hard-shell tacos. But my happiness knew no bound when soft shell tacos came stuffed with slow roasted pumpkin, feta cheese and pine nuts. It was nothing less than a treat.
But the star dish for the evening stood out to be their Linguine Tossed with Three Chillies – Jalapenos, Green Chilli and Chilli Flakes in a Lemon Butter Emulsion with grilled vegetables. It was cooked with so much of perfection that it calls for another visit.
Last but not the least to mention is their ever-famous Banana and Toffee Waffle. It was a pure bliss to end my food journey at Depot 29 with sweet and fluffly delicacy.
