Good food turns out to be the biggest motivator for a lot of people and is sure to uplift their spirits and makes them want to take the world head on. Finding good food can churn out to task, one that a rumbling stomach might get irritated with, specially if you’re in East Delhi. While there are a lot of restaurants in Delhi NCR, East Delhi somehow hasn’t been the attention spot for foodies. Reason being the lack of good places to eat at.
However, if you happen to visit East Delhi or if you reside in East Delhi, one place that you can surely rely upon for some delicious cafe style food is El Posto.
Located at Aditya Mega Mall, El Posto is known for its variety of freshly baked, drool-inducing desserts and savoury items, that one could binge on to. While it could be a task to get down till here, the visit would turn out to be worth it after you dig into their offerings. The fuss free menu offers something for every palate, inspite of being short and simple. The simplicity of the menu is also reflected in the interiors, which is inspired by vibrancy. One cannot take their eyes off the counter that nestles the sweet surprises.
While the Hazelnut Shake(Rs 125) somehow lacked the flavour of the hazelnut, the AK Choco 7 (Rs 125) had the quintessential choco kick that a chocolate lover would long for. Due to the over sweetness, the Italian Smooch(Rs 105) can be skipped, but the Spicy Masala Lemonade (Rs 105) cannot be missed at any cost.
The simple Veg Dimsums (Rs 99) go well with the spicy sauce that the dish is accompanied along with and the Chilli Potato (Rs 135) can be the go to dish. The Chilli Paneer (Rs 165) should be the first pick if you’re choosing from the Chinese Starters menu(though a little more spice can do wonders).
The Veg Crispy Patty Tacos (Rs 250) are surely the best amongst the other Tex Mex dishes and will ensure that every penny spent will be worth it. Pizzas and pastas will be a safe bet if you’re not willing to experiment as much. The El Posto Special Pizza(Rs 399) could be gorged for serious pizza cravings and the Lasagne Italiano (Rs 375) would be a savior. Pair Chilli Garlic Noodles (Rs 145) with Exotic vegetables Hot Garlic Sauce(Rs 185) or try the delicious American Choupsey(Rs 199), and you wouldn’t regret your decision.
Known for its desserts, leaving El Posto without trying their sweet offerings is going to be no less than a sin. The various pastries are going to be nice and indulgent but it’s the Banoffee Pie(Rs 110) and the Waffles which are the show stoppers that anyone who has a sweet tooth will devour till the last bite.
Overall, if you’re looking for a place to satisfy your hunger pangs while in East Delhi, without having to spend a lot for delicious food, El Posto is the place to come. A tad bit honing over the service would take El Posto shining ahead in the future.
