Lunches are Back at Singh Sahib

Singh Sahib is a Punjabi restaurant at the Eros Hotel, Nehru Place, New Delhi that dishes out food from pre-partition Punjab, a culturally richer and more diverse version of the state we know today, much larger as it was then from multiple perspectives. It is one of the few restaurants I’ve seen that I can confidently say differentiates itself from the thousands of other similar restaurants, almost purely through culinary means.

What sets Singh Sahib apart is its use of spices, the likes of which I haven’t seen in many commercial kitchens, and it’s always a pleasure to revisit this restaurant, which Indu and I did for lunch this past weekend.

We did indulge ourselves a bit during lunch; starters, followed by dal and roti, and found the food mostly unchanged, and definitely in a good way. Now that lunches are 50% of the regular menu price, this would be a great time for you too to visit this restaurant and try some of their very different fare.
