BIJOLI GRIL has its own legacy and this place proves it!
After been there 4 times in last 2 years, I think I am quite an expert on the menu served at Bijoli Grill situated at Barakhamba Road, New Delhi.
Before I go further, let me tell you that I am one of those people who dislike having their own cuisine at a restaurant. Don’t get me wrong but I am quite adept in cooking that myself, at home. I mean, at half the price I would pay at the restaurant, I can sufficiently feed the entire family. However, I have a weakness for a well-made Fish Fry, and Bijoli Grill serves that. Along with French Fries and kashundi, that would literally blow off you mind and clear your sinuses!!
So, my friends that is what makes me visit this place over and over again. I swear, After Chili’s, Bijoli Grill is our most-frequented restaurant for Sunday lunch family get-togethers or simply when we are craving for some bhuri-bhoj.
What to eat at Bijoli Grill restaurant?
If you are a novice to Bengali cuisine, I think you should start with Fish Fry (obviously!) Then there is Fish Kabiraji which is mildly spiced fish fillet fried with eggs. It is served as a piece of fish placed in a nest of crunchy egg nest. If you are a vegetarian, then there are varieties of chops or croquettes like Mocha’r Chop ( Banana Blossom Croquettes), etc. For eggetarians, there is Dimer Devil, which is a sliced egg and spiced potato croquette.
Moving on to the main course menu at Bijoli Grill, I am not going to bore you with their offerings. They have pretty much everything fancy that the Bengali cuisine has to offer.
For me the must-have’s at the Bijoli Grill restaurant are:
- Luchi–Kosha Mangsho (Bengali Mutton Pot Roast)
- Daab Chingri (Prawns cooked in Tender Coconut)
- Bhetki Macher Paturi (Bhetki or Barramunda cooked in mustard sauce inside Banana leaf)
Caution – This can be a strong and pungent dish, so be careful.
- Bengali Veg & Non-Veg Thali
After all of this, be prepared to be enamoured by their Mishti Doi. Absolutely delicious. Every time we went, we got it fresh, creamy and perfectly sweet. But if your sweet tooth isn’t satiated yet, then go for Chana’r Jilipi. Until you have tried it, you won’t know its worth!
