Good food @ Great price

To Sum-It-Up: Every kitchen has a bad day. It really depends how the eatery handles its patrons when there is a complaint. My loyalties to Alkauser Gurgaon remain intact.

So whenever Sujit is in town, a trip to Alkauser Gurgaon is a ritual. Hence, we were at Alkauser for lunch a few days back. In fact, food critics swear by Alkauser, such is their charisma. As a matter of fact, this legendary eatery is any carnivore’s delight. It was to my delight that Alkauser opened a new outlet in Gurgaon at Sikanderpur a few months back. Furthermore, it is located right across the road from Garden Estate quite close to DLF2 where I live. Incidentally, when I queried the bearded man at the entrance, he confirmed that it is owned & operated by the same family as the Malcha Marg & R.K. Puram eateries that I have been frequenting since childhood.

Though, with no disrespect to the eatery I am really not impressed by its location. But, the walkway to Alkauser Gurgaon stinks. Interestingly, when I pointed this out to them I got a non-committal response. So I really don’t know if something will be done about it. The eatery by itself looks spartan with its functional furniture albeit alright for a languid lunch. So my friend Sujit was already ahead of me. In fact, he found their air-conditioned hall and had parked his bottom on one of the steel chairs. Actually, the interiors at Alkauser Gurgaon were quite clean. Also, as we sat down, the menu, sliced onions with spicy green chutney got deposited on the table almost immediately.

In the meantime, we opted for their famed Galouti Kebabs with Roomali Rotis (note: not wraps), Mutton Shahi Tikka, a Mutton Biryani and a portion of Nihari with Plain Naans. Actually, I consider myself a loyalist when it comes to Alkauser. And I think it’ll be rare when they go wrong with their Kakouris, Tikkas, & Galoutis. I was right. The Mutton Shahi Tikka, & Galouti kebabs were outstanding as always. Having said that the Mutton Lucknowi Dum Handi Biryani & Nihari missed to make its mark with us this time. The rice of the biryani was undercooked though the aroma was unmistakably inviting. While the gravy of the Nihari was excellent, the meat was not falling off the bone as is preferred in any slow cooked mutton dish.

We pointed this out to the steward. The steward pointed it out to the bearded man at the entrance who then came up to us to inquire about the misgiving. He agreed with us without any resistance and offered to replace the same. While we refused the replacements, we didn’t leave a morsel on the table.
