With Ramadan just around the corner, Buzzingtales thought of exploring the various Iftar options available. Barbeque Delights seemed like a great place to initiate our gastronomical journey for the month. We decided to venture out to the newly opened joint at Ibn Battuta, China court.
The interiors of Barbeque Delights, with red, black & green themed décor was in complete synch with Ibn Battuta’s interiors. The staff was super efficient, attentive and warm despite a full house.
We delighted our palate with Iftar dinner filled with the flavorful tastes of Indian, Pakistani and Afghani flavours. We tried out the staff recommended mouth-watering fusion of tasty desserts, barbecued meats, and soft beverages from across these regions.
Barbeque Delights elaborate Ramadan Iftar menu, comprises of both buffet and à la carte, with an appetizing array of signature grilled meats and seafood, Afghan and Middle Eastern dishes, vegetarian dishes and traditional Indo-Pak desserts.
The staff also informed us that Barbecue Delights fan favourites include a collection of Kebabs, which arrive fresh off the skewer accompanied by a generous portion of Pulao or Biryani. Other dishes include ‘Reshmi Kebab’, ‘Afghani Tikka’, ‘Mutton Ribs’, ‘Mutton Karahi’ and ‘Fish Tikka’.
The vegetarian menu options include Palak Paneer, tangy and spicy Khattay Baingan and Aloo Zeera, (sauteed potatoes with cumin seeds). From the exquisitely spiced curries to the renowned grills, we enjoyed each of the dishes.
As for the desserts, we were too spoilt for choices with Gulab Jamun, Jalebis, Shahi Tukre, Custard, and many others line up in front of us.
We cannot help but mention the Chai & Chat corner with its lip-smacking street food options. My personal favourite was the pani puri shots and papdi chat. We gathered some useful information regarding the Iftar Buffet at Barbeque Delight for the benefit of our readers.
