Adda captures the true spirit of what "adda" is all about

Adda has been on most foodies’ radar and for good reason. The menu celebrates casual Indian street food but while it may be casual the flavors are still elevated and modern (I don’t think you’ll find tandoori cauliflower easily on the streets of India!). I loved the snacks and grill selections and after each last bite I wished I could have another plateful. The curries and biryani were good but not my favorite. The masaledar lipatwan murgh (tomato chicken curry) is quite rich and the biryani was more spicy than I had anticipated. The next time I’m at Adda I will focus all my attention to eating the complete snacks and grill section!

Favorites:

  1. Dahi Batata Puri (chatpata aloo, chutneys, yogurt)- These are bursts of joy and highly addictive! It also combines crunchiness with very well seasoned yogurt.

  2. Tandoori gobi- How can a caufliflower taste so good and not make you miss meat at all? Well for one it must be grilled to tandoori perfect then add some soft cheese on top and voilà!

  3. Amul cheese & chili naan (not pictured)- This is the best naan I’ve ever had. It’s soft, full of flavor and just the right amount of heat.
