“Let’s go out for dinner” … “How about South Indian dinner?” … “I don’t want to have Idli, dosa or sambar” … Really? Is that what you think South Indian cuisine is all about? We have come a long way from the era when it was a common misconception that South Indian food consists of just idlis, dosa or sambar. And one of the places where you would get the best of South Indian offerings is Dakshin at Sheraton. Part of ITC Hotels, Sheraton is set up in the busy upmarket of Saket, Delhi.
Dakshin at Sheraton is a quaint little restaurant with an ambience that blends tradition with modernity. Brass chandelier, carpeted floors, silver thalis, brass tableware a friendly staff and a team of expert chefs are all that brings forth the rich culinary tradition of the Southern belt of our country. Dakshin takes pride in being the Times winner of the best South Indian hotel.
So what can you expect different at Dakshin ? The menu is an amalgamation of the rich dishes that are popular in the four South Indian sister states. Kuzhi paniyaram, meen varuval, Ghongura mamasam, Kathirikai Chops, pachakari varattiyathe, appam, veechu parotta, Veinchina Mamsam, Meen Moilee, Andhra Kodi Biryani, Kozhi Milagu Curry, Dal Thove, Kori Sukka, home-style Kerala stew, Andhra Mutton curry, are the various dishes that are a speciality of the Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The freebies like four kinds of podis, papads, and fried gundu chillies serve as great munchies.
From the dessert menu, Vathallappam and Badam Halwa are great options. Vathallappam made with coconut milk and jaggery is too delicious to miss out. Finish with a cup of filter coffee. A perfect end to a glorious South Indian meal!
