Hop on the street food express and get ready to be Imlified. This train style restaurant takes you through the street foods of the country with the fancies of a spic and span train. The place is armed with quirky artefacts, model planes and carts, a luggage compartment complete with faux luggage, a moving av that you can travel through while you wait for your meal or glance out those train windows. IMLY started with being parked at the Hog Market, Rajendra place, progressing onto Noida, Dubai and all set to open in Saket and Rajouri Garden.
Known for their presentation, its prudent to start with either their golgappa dahi chaat which comes in a cartwheel or galgappas that surprise you each time you order them.
The Mumbai specials are hot favourites. The vada pav is spicy and comes with some added mirchi and masala and mint chutney.
Missal pav is another street favorite from Bombay streets – gravy with sev and buttered pav.
The Bombay grilled sandwich sounded pretty good – tomato, cucumber, potato with dollops of butter and cheese, grilled and topped with sev. The butter and cheese was too overwhelming for my palate but if you are a fan, this is the ultimate snack for you.
The Chinese bhel with munchurian was very palatable – crispy, saucy fried noodles with vegetable munchurian – the munchurian balls could have been a little softer.
The yumminess from down South includes one of their best sellers – Dosa, the IMLY way. Masala dosa garnished with cheese and sambhar and an array of chutneys served on banana leaf
Amritsari kulcha and choley are perfectly spiced, served with onions. The kulcha was generously stuffed with potatoes and onions and lightly buttered and served with masala choley.
The choley bhaturey at 90bucks is again completely lip smacking.
Wash it all down with a bottle of flavored bunta.
So, hop on and get your street food fix here.
