Teddy Boy, a British term used to describe a certain kind of people, based on the way they dress. Bringing that British feel to Connaught Place is this new lounge/bar by Priyank Sukhija.
Just when innovation in the food sense had reached a new high and no one could think of newer recipes, came Teddy Boy with Chef Doyel Sarangi, who came into the limelight after the third season of Masterchef India. And for her, there’s been no looking back since then. Fortunately, I got a chance to interact with Chef Doyel and even after achieving such heights, she remains as humble as ever. Chef Dino, too adds to the charm of the place with his special dishes.
Coming to the food, the menu is just fantabulous! So many dishes that I couldn’t have thought of, have been beautifully curated, made and presented. I tried the following dishes:
Nachos Bruschetta: Using a nacho instead of bread is a wonderful idea, and even more so when it tastes so good. The topping was of mayonnaise, shredded mushroom and just a touch of wine and strawberry sauce, which added a lot of flavour.
Dry Manchurian: This dish had been quite popular but a long time ago. And it used to be one of my favourites. When I saw it on the menu, I had to have it. And it turned out to be delicious too.
Kasundi Skewers: Available in both both veg and chicken, this one’s a hit. With a Bengali touch to skewers, it’s a delicious, slightly pungent starter (because of all the mustard, and I do love mustard).
Kulcha Taco: The most impressive thing about the kulcha taco is the presentation. It’s amazing how hard people have worked on the presentation of dishes at Teddy Boy. The taste of course follows and makes it a great dish.
Ferrero Rocher Golgappa: Amazing concept and amazing execution. The golgappa had loads of chocochips and the rabri served with it went very well.
Chennai Tang: I was a little apprehensive while ordering this cocktail, but with the recommendation of our server, I went ahead and what a good decision it was. It was different and nice. And one cocktail at Teddy Bar is quite a lot as they put 90ml of alcohol.
The service was exemplary and the interiors are simple yet trendy. The music is good and just the general feel of the place is happy and lively.
