This is one concept Delhi needs to learn from Gurgaon (sorry, Gurugram) – a Food Truck Park. A convoy of 20 odd trucks parked serving a wide variety of food, drinks (albeit only non-alcoholic) and desserts. The feast started at The Rolling Kitchen with a Cheese Manakeesh (a Lebanese pizza of sorts).
The cheese was full of flavour although the base is soft so don’t expect it to be like thin crust pizza. Ordered along with was a Nutella Banana Waffle from Waffle Chowk.
The waffle itself was not too sweet so it complemented the sweetness of the ice-cream, banana and Nutella topping. A crisp outer with a soft inner made it a perfectly made waffle – a must try.
Then there was Thirsty Bird which served mocktails.
We moved onto Oh Buoy for Masala Chaap – very tender and well marinated but slightly under cooked. We finally stopped at Traffic Stopper to order Pav Bhaji and Crispy Honey Chill Cottage Cheese (without the honey though), both very well liked.
The Chur Chur Naan with Chole from 3 and Half was a bit of a disappointment. While the Butter Garlic Mushroom Rissoto from What the Fork was delightfully creamy with the generous olives and mushrooms providing the flavours.
There was some Chinese ordered from Me Kong Bowl and Something Saucy as well as Thupka and Momos from another truck. All had a distinct character and taste which was appreciated. The night ended at Tongue Twisters for ice-creams.
The baked Alaska was more a Casatta but the choclate based ice-creams were all wonderful. The concept provides for a wonderful and affordable experience away from the regular brick and mortar outlets. If only the administration can provide better seating and garbage disposal, this has the potential of becoming a global showcase at par with all those outdoor food courts we see so often in Europe and elsewhere.
