Doner Grill; a Turkish concept, but an Indian mind.
This place opened up last year, first at Greater Kailash 1 and then expanded to other areas such as Saket (in the food court), Hauz Khas Village (which is their biggest outlet with a large seating capacity) and then the newest one at Punjabi Bagh.
So basically the concept is:
- You choose a bread, which is available in two varieties, either whole wheat or white. (Whole wheat recommended)
- Then you decide on a filling. The best part is that they have quite a lot of variety for vegetarian, ranging from soya to falafel to paneer. And this is quite a change because most foreign chains don’t concentrate on soya which is a major source of protein for vegetarians. For non vegetarians, they have chicken and lamb options.
- You can also convert the doner into a roll, a rice bowl or a salad.
- Next there are a lot of flavours to choose from. And I decided to choose the following:
- Original Chicken Roll: This one is a Turkish flavour and more like a shawarma but because it’s available in whole wheat bread, it’s definitely a better option than a shawarma from elsewhere.
- Chicken Chipotle: A Mexican flavour with a filling of veggies and some nice well-cooked chicken. This one’s a little spicy.
- Piri Piri Soya: Piri Piri is of Portuguese descent, which was combined well together with Soya and some veggies. It had a very strong and distinct taste and was definitely tasty.
- Paneer Tikka Roll: The meal would be quite incomplete without an Indian origin dish in the kitty and so I tried the Paneer Tikka roll as well and it was my favourite from the lot.
- They have a number of sauces to choose from. My favourites are Hummus, Chilly Cheese Blend, Chilly and Piri Piri Mayo.
- And that’s not all to the menu. The waffles were definitely a major attraction for me. And I was glad I tried them. I ordered the nutella waffles. The waffles were baked perfectly, they were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
- They also have a variety of shakes and I tried the Oreo shake which was delicious. It was full of Oreo goodness.
So the next time you feel like having a wrap or a roll or if you decide to go to one of the foreign chains, you might want to try this place out and see how even Indian joints are delivering high quality, delicious products that won’t just match international standards but surpass them.
