Winters in Delhi are something to cherish. The icing on the cake is the winter specific menu that restaurants come up with. The seasonal specials bring out the best of the seasonal produce directly to our plates. Going with the tradition, Monkey Bar has introduced One Bowl Menu for the winter, which presents 12 hearty, no frill, one bowl meals of comfort food to its patrons.
The menu is carefully and thoughtfully designed to have something for each palate. There’s Rajma Chawal & Kadhi Chawal bowls for the desi palette, Panch Phoron and Kasundi Maach, Goan Xacutti, Kashmiri Yakhni among others to please the rest.

The table favorite, rather surprisingly, turned out to be the Wild Mushroom Khichdi Bowl (380), served with papad, achar, chutney and curd. Slow cooked mushrooms in creamy moong dal khichdi, topped with desi ghee and the accompaniments – make a finger licking combination. It’s hard to stop at one. Panch Phoron and Kasundi Maach Bowl ( 420) was another favorite – surmai fish cooked with the unbeatable kasundi mustard and paanch phoron – served with gobindobhog rice, doi begun and tomato chutney – this would be a favorite for bongs and others alike.

Nagarjuna Inspired Chilli Chicken (410) with malabar parotta and plaintain chips is another item from the menu that you should try – on the spicier side, as it is supposed to be, anyone would love the flavors it packs. There’s Goan Xacuti ( 410) served with banyard millets, if you love the cuisine and Kashmiri Yakhni ( 420), which has boneless mutton cooked with yogurt and spices and served with saffron pulao.

Korean Bibimbap (400), Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Bowl ( 400) & Seafood Linguine ( 400) bring in the touch of international cuisine and are good options to have on the table. Try the Bibimbap, which in real terms, is a one bowl meal and it’s done quite well. The Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Bowl is served on a bed of sticky rice and you will like it if you like teriyaki.
