Newbie @ Flinders, all the way from DELHI (India)

Finally the wait was over. I had been eying this place ever since it's been under construction and waiting for its opening. And here they are with a bang It's been a busy place since Day 1 when I went for lunch and dinner, both the same day.

Delhi Streets is a family owned and run joint that has a colorful and absolute Bollywood-style décor with a beautiful open plan kitchen. It's neat, hygienic and has a casual eatery ambience. After being placed at a table by a friendly attendant, who also suggested some dishes, the Degustation began.

There were finger licking chaats to start with. I tried the Samosa Chaat (potato filled pasty) with chickpea dry curry topped with yummy mint chutney, tangy tamarind chutney and creamy yogurt. After that I tried the BEBO's handmade Aloo Tikki Chaat (potato pancakes) served on a bed of chickpea curry and mint and tamarind chutney with chopped onions. This is a must try.

After satiety tingled my taste buds a little bit I moved to the main course. I tried the freshly made 'Paneer Pizza Naan', which is an easy and non messy version of flat bread and veggies. It was crisp from the edges and soft from the inside and I would say, baked to perfection. Next I tried the wraps. There are 3 - chicken, paneer or potato. This was a freshly baked wrap base with toasted veggies, salads and a special secret sauce which makes it yummmmmm. It was easy to handle and filling for a working lunch or a quick bite.

Other options available are the Veg/Non Veg Thali (another popular one) and the Biryanis. You can also check out their daily specials.

Price wise it's light on the pocket. Dishes start at $6.

And of course no meal is complete without satisfying your sweet tooth, and that's exactly what I did I tried the 'Carrot Halwa' topped with almonds and pistachios and served hot. For the health conscious this is a must try. It's soft and sweet, is not too sugary, melts in the mouth and most definitely reminded me of Amritsar in India.

And the temptation continued to try their home made pistachio kulfi. It was creamy and soft and reminded me again of the street of Delhi.
