Sunday, August 19, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-

Finding a good restaurant which have good ambiance, good seating area, great decor, good food with good prices can be little difficult. Today I am reviewing one of the Al Karama restaurant which have most of the things tik mark, it is Urban Cook House.

Urban Cook House is a restaurant which is made out of love for food and to provide good hospitality to the people as said by the owner. The place is simple and elegant and nothing the over top, the good Indian music plays in the background and the lighting is perfect to set the mood. The location is very easy to find as it is just behind the Karama post office.

If you are member of zomato gold then it is good way to try out new restaurant as they have partnered with zomato and provide 1+1 food.

What We Tried There:
  • Pardha Kabab
  • Dynamite Shrimp
  • Galouti Kebab 
  • Butterfly Chicken
  • Murg Lahori
  • Dal Bukhra
  • Mutton Biryani
  • Assorted Bread Basket
  • Pudina Lassi Salted
  • Mango Lassi
  • Lemonade
  • Mawa Gulab Jamun
  • Vanilla Ice Cream with caramelized nuts
To beat the heat we started with the drinks, firstly we tried the Mango Lassi which was nice and second was Pudina Lassi Salted which not only helped to refresh but is also good for our appetite.

For starters we got to try the Pardha Kabab which was succulent and was nicely blend with north Indian spices, I #HighlyRecommend you to try it out.

Next we tried something from their Chinese menu which is fusion-ed with Indian Spices, it is Dynamite Shrimp. Huge shrimps nicely coated with sweet and sour sauce and proper crisp. It is one of the best Dynamite shrimp I have ever tried, #MustHave.

Another specialty starter which we tried was Galouti Kabab which is perfect for people who don't like spicy or anything with too much spices. The chicken is nicely minced and made a patty and fried to perfection keeping the juicy flavors in it.

Lastly we tried Butterfly Chicken which is one of the dishes in their new menu. Chicken is cut in cubes, coated nicely in batter and fried and a fried potato slice is put on stick along with it. I honestly didn't like it because I find it very basic and not worth the money. I wish at least the chicken size should be little bigger like strips.

After our starters were over our drinks also got over and we tried their Lemonade which was very refreshing.

Coming up to the main course we started with Murg Lahori which was yum. It had perfect mixture of Indian spices and chicken was nice and juicy. It is not too spicy and not to sweet had a perfect taste. A good dish which suits everyone's palate, I #HighlyRecommend.

In vegetarian we tried their favorite Dal Bukhra which looks similar to dal makhni but it is different. The aroma is divine and the thick consistency compliments well with the roti or paratha, I #LoveIt.

We were served with assorted bread basket which had Olive Jalapenos Naan, Paprika Naan, Butter Naan, Tandoor Roti and much more.  I loved the Olive and jalapeno naan more and it was new and never tried before.

Lastly in mains we had Mutton Biryani, the aroma of it was beautiful even though we were almost full we were hungry. The rice is perfectly cooked and meat is nice and soft but only problem was it salty which disappointed us.

For desserts we tried their House Made Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramelized Nuts, ice cream had nice flavor and caramelized nuts were good idea to make it interesting.

We also had Mawa Gulab Jamun, it was freshly made and was hot. Mawa is stuffed in between the Gulab Jamun which balances out the sweetness. I loved it and definitely give it a try.

Overall it is one of the nice place in Karama which have proper hygiene. Few of the fusion dishes are worth the money because it is little cheaper then other restaurant. They also do home delivery if you want food at your door step. This place can be little bit expensive then compared to other Karama restaurant but the ambiance and quality of food is nice.
