A 250 feet long train with a compilation of all street food from different states at one place is surely a great idea. Amazed to see the menu, which had almost all popular items from different states. A proper dine-in restaurant, with attentive stewards and managers, made my evening awesome. Have seen some vegetarian friends of mine, who are hesitant visiting a restaurant serving non veg food. Varun Puri might have felt too, thus he came out with the concept of a fully VEGETARIAN restaurant. Wouldn’t be good if you get the best quality food and pocket friendly as well? Imly left me flabbergasted!
Meet Mr. Varun Puri, the force behind Imly.
It was difficult to get table last time i came, but seeing the RATING, i made another attempt to grab a table. And, a successful attempt 🙂
This outlet of Imly is very near to Rajendra Place metro station (Blue line). If you are coming from CP, take the right just before the Rajendra Place metro station red light, and after half a km, you can see a 250 feet long train on your left. With ample parking space, this restaurant is outspread well.
Entry to the restaurant is taken care by a guard who talks with the staff inside to know if there are seats available. If you are waiting for the seats, there are benches and mist fans outside the restaurant to keep you relaxed.
The ambience needs a little repair or may be a complete changeover, like the ACs. Split ACs are installed which have a water leakage. Though we were not disturbed, but i guess its important to keep the infrastructure maintained. No centralized AC in train required mist fans 🙂
Got the seat with artificial grasses onto our left and a knitted wall art with IMLY written over. The colorful glasses were different. Though it appeared that being glass they will be heavy, but came out to be light. The tissues, fork and spoon came us on a cycle 🙂
KARARE PALAK KI CHAAT
As i shared earlier, this restaurant contains street food from different states, the first item we ordered was a UP cuisine. Crispy spinach came in small pieces with sweet and salt chutney mixed well with yoghurt. Absolute delight! The quantity was enough for 2. Presentation was different too, served in a long handle pan.
DAHI GOL GAPPA CHAAT
How can we not order Delhi’s favorite – Gol gappe. Pani Gol Gappe are always good and desired, but for a change we tried Dahi Gol Gappe. Ordered from Delhi’s section in menu, this came in a small Ferris wheel – the presentation was amazing. The serving had 5 stuffed gol gappe, and the taste was amazing. The yoghurt and chutnety was well beaten very well. The gol gappe were crispy.
Imly prepares a drink of the day, for us it was a Magic, Mango Magic. Mango beautifully blended with different flavors, mint and lemon was a refresher.
Whatsapp me! That’s what the glass says 😉 Taste wise, i was expecting more of Kisme flavor, felt evocative while ordering, however was not able to find it.
एक तो कोला, ऊपर से मसाला – what is a better combination than this? This was Imly’s signature dish as well. Perfect drink to resemble Imly’s flavor.
AMRITSARI KULCHE WITH CHOLE
Is the main course complete without a Punjabi Dish? No, never! Amritsari chole kulche was the next item on our table. Punjabi section on the menu offers some of the talked about dishes, worth trying. Taste was great, and the accompanying chutney was well spiced. Felt the quantity of chole was little less.
What’s best to taste all snacks – A platter! This platter had Paneer, Gobhi, Soya and Mushroom. Mushroom was very spicy! Rest, everything tasted amazing. Quantity was good for 2.
