Winters in the north means the arrival of fresh vegetables.. the tasty lot.. especially the most delicious Sarson ka saag. Punjabi’s love their food so imagine my excitement when I found out there is an awesome Makki ki roti and Sarson ka saag at Kapoor’s cafe. There’s white makkan(white butter) to top it. And.. wait for the big ending.. Gur(jaggery) as a dessert.
Well, I dragged my friends all the way to Whitefields and we didn’t regret it one bit. The saag was better than I remembered tasting it and the white butter was pure nostalgia.
Other than the start winter meal at Kapoor’s cafe, we were tempted to try other dishes. Lassi was undoubtedly the best one I have had in the city. Served in a clay matka, the lassi was so thick that we had to eat it with a spoon.
Another must-try dish at this dhabha/restaurant are the parathas here. Any Punjabi worth his salt is crazy over the stuffed parathas with white makkhan. And if you identify with this type, a visit to Kapoor’s cafe is in order. We had Paneer and Dal makhani with jira rice and Indian breads for main course as well, which was good.
Ambience wise Kapoor’s cafe has a simple dhabha type setting and service is prompt. Good for a casual meal.
I’m looking forward to trying more visits to Kapoor’s cafe. It’s pure vegetarian but still Punjabi enough for me.
My rating 4!
