Review of Dhaba Lane – Explore North Indian food in Dubai
Overview of Dhaba Lane, Dubai
Dhaba Lane has many menu options with hospitable staff and vibrant interiors. Now I am presenting you to a virtual tour of Dhaba Lane with many flavors of famous North Indian Dhaba food.
AMBIANCE / DÉCOR OF Dhaba Lane, Dubai
As the concept of this restaurant is desi- authentic – North Indian highway food and so are the interiors. The reception wall is made into a truck front façade. Also, other walls are designed as North Indian village interiors with Jharokha-style windows and vibrant yellow walls. The seating arrangements are of two kinds with ease on sofa style of arrangement and table-chairs.
The tiny cashier or reception of this restaurant with a truck façade makes this place looks like perfect Indian Highway-styled eateries.
So let’s get soak into the highway vibes of this place which has North Indian-styled interiors with many spicy & authentic flavors.
WHAT I ORDERED AT DHABA LANE, DUBAI
We were warmly welcomed by a staff member of Dhaba Lane’s team – Mr. Negi (Head Chef) and the front line team and presented me with their signature-style dishes.
Mango Mule & Shikanji – Indian-styled lime water with the flavor of mint, coriander, and tangy spices.
- Purani Dilli ki papadi chaat
Old Delhi is known for amazing street-side tangy and spicy Indian fast food(Chaat). So Dhaba Lane presents you with Delhi’s special Chaat as their signature starter dish to your table.
Sigree Se (Hot Starters) –
Sigree means stove in Indian language – so it means direct from flame –
- Tandoori broccoli
Char-grilled Brocolli garnished with special Indian sauces have an amazing burst of spicy flavors.
- Dahi ke kabab
Tangy-creamy yogurt deep-fried fritters melt in your mouth with amazing flavors.
- Makkai methi ke kabab
Corn and Fenugreek shallow fry patties will melt in your mouth with the perfect combination of the sweetness of the corn and bitter fenugreek.
Kadhai aur Handi Se (Main Courses)
- Paneer taka take
Spicy Indian gravy with chunks of cottage cheese and finely chopped vegetables has amazing balanced flavors of all spices.
- Sarson Da Saag
North Indian food – especially the winter food does not get complete if you don’t have Mustard leaves curry. Sarson(mustard) leaves are cooked in special preparation in Punjab(Northern India) and taste amazing when garnished with lots of white butter.
- Desi Malai Kofta
Vegetable fritters dipped in creamy yellow Indian sauce will melt in your mouth and you will always crave more for it.
- Dal makhan maar ke
Black lentils cooked in a pot and that too slow cooking makes it very delicious and also a very high source of protein. Black lentils cooked with extra butter are the signature dish of Dhaba Lane and a must-try. They also serve Dal Makhan in a special vessel that looks like a water-well.
- Assorted bread
Indian pieces of bread like Lachcha Paratha, Tandoori Roti, Tandoori Nan are perfect to have with these delicious curries.
- Dum Biryani Rice
No Indian meal is complete with rice items and too if it is Biryani. Aromatic Flavored Biryani made in earthen pot is the perfect way to end your main course.
- Moong Dal halwa
Yellow lentils dessert is a high source of protein and is very nutritious too. Dhaba Lane adds jaggery (Gur) instead of sugar. I loved the taste of Moong Dal Halwa and also the presentation was awesome as it was garnished with dry rose petals, dry fruits, and some exotic fruits.
- Gulab Jamun
Milk solid dumplings dipped in sugar syrup are a common dessert of Indian food. But Dhaba Lane has given unique fusion to this dish by dipping milk solid fritters in honey. So basically it looks healthier version of traditional Gulab Jamun. Also, this dessert is garnished with dry rose petals and dry nuts.
