Imperfecto revisited !!!
After having a bad meal experience and on the recommendation of the restaurant staff about a new upcoming menu, we once again headed back to Imperfecto.
A thursday night with a live band on a cool Delhi night drew a larger crowd than I expected. The place looked great as usual with dim lighting and the music.
We had a spanking new menu in hand with a lot of interesting new dishes to try from. and here it goes ..
Roasted Pumpkin and Blue Cheese Risotto Salad – One spoonful of this packed-with-flavors salad and you are transported to a different world. Made with a little on the raw side of risotto, chunks of pumpkin, pineapple, cucumber, some kind of citrus fruit. The entire dish was tied together with a liquidy white sauce which i dint realise was there until we reached to the bottom of the salad. A must try …. !!!
Special Veg Seekh Kebabs – It was a from a winter only umbrella menu and was recommended by the friendly server. It had a smoky flavor and was dazzled with pomegranate seeds which served a sweet contrast to the otherwise spicy kebabs.
A chicken malai tikka lasagna with field herbs – It sounded like a great fusion though I had no idea what filed herbs are 🙂 The dish arrived and looked very inviting. Well conceived and nicely prepared, it had topping of cheese, lasgna sheet cooked to perfection and multiple layers filled with chicken, melted cheese/white sauce( i couldnt figure that out), veggies and a slightly burnt bottom. Each spoonful had several textures coming from the variety of good quality ingredients present in the dish. A happy and soul satisfying experience.
Italian Minestrone Soup – I just took a spoonful of it to taste. It was sweetishly sour with lots of veggies to dig for in the soup.
Manchego Cheese Croquetas – Manchego is a cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of the manchega breed. Whether the cheese was Manchego or Not, but it was definitely the highlight of the night. The deep fried dumplings with literally not even a drop of oil with perfectly molten cheesy centre with an amazing onion dip (which was warm) . Thats my definition of comfort food. I can keep going back just for this one dish (and my friends do agree with that)
Great going Imperfecto !!!
A really great looking new menu served with a lot of enthusiasm and happiness with great quality cooking. The operations manager Karan was jumping around with great energy, personally making sure that each and every guest was enjoying the night. I would surely be going back to try out the rest of the stuff. You can only eat as much in one night 😉
