Beautifully illustrated interiors, so many breakfast options, big French windows and all time favorite comfort meals. Smoke House Deli is your perfect bet for brunch, they never go wrong with their meats and unlike other all day breakfast places, open at 8.00AM and you are always left in awe with the gorgeousness. Smoke House Deli at Khan Market is always, always packed with people, chattering families and always puts you home with fresh coffee and a spot on view. Be sure to read those beautifully calligraphed couplets on the walls.
Started with their customary and possibly the best bread basket/sack there could be. Fresh dinner rolls, soup sticks and more with flavored butter.
Kiwi, Cantaloupe melon and jasmine lemonade – the jasmine flavors were a little low but the fresh kiwi and melon were very refreshing. Oreo Shake – hands down the best shake. With just the right consistency of ice cream and dollops on whipped cream, this was just slightly sweet and oh so satiating. Guatemala Antigua – the slight cocoa like texture and perfect brew served in a mini French press, this warms you right up.
Smoked chicken, Caperberries – crunchy lettuce, rocket leaves, capers, asparagus, sweet lime, chicken smoked to a succulency, orange vodka dressing and a gentle drizzle of balsamic. The freshness of this salad and natural crunch of greens is what adds so much life to this beautiful piece. Lamb and chipotle patties – minced lamb patties topped with melted mozzarella and topped with a little chipotle sauce. The cheese and smooth texture of lamb makes these for a super bar bite.
Our mains included the new gluten free addition to the menu – Prawns tossed in red pepper and garlic salsa – more of an Asian influence, this pot comes with curried prawns in a smoked pepper and garlic gravy with turmeric rice and some fresh greens. Wild mushroom fricasse with truffle scented spaghetti – spaghetti tossed in truffle oil with button and shiitake mushrooms and a thick cheesy sauce. Served with garlic bread, the pasta is well balanced, pasta cooked al dente and mushrooms, pretty addictive. Thee peppercorn crusted steak and spiced mushrooms – Smoke House Deli remains my favourite place for steaks, this medium well done piece was drizzled over with creamy hollandaise sauce. Served on a bed of mashed potatoes and with a side of greens, the peppercorn steak is so tantalizing and the creaminess of the hollandaise just takes it to a different level.
Smoke House Deli has recently added waffles to their menu list, currently available at Khan Market and Vasant Kunj, and needless to say, they are just perfect. Crisp on the outside and fluffy inside, we tried the classic waffles with maple syrup, chocolate sauce and fresh ice cream. Can’t wait to try more of these!
Smoke House Deli has once again satiated with their perfectly cooked steak, hearty pasta and their latest addition of waffles is simply stellar. Not to miss the Oreo shake.
