Biriyani & Kebab Festival

Visited the second edition of Biriyani & Kebab Festival organised by t2 at City Centre last Saturday with my new foodie gang. K drove us in her family car from our office at Chandni Chowk. Big names like Aliah, Shiraz, Royal, Zeeshan, Aminia were seen with Mezban, Tamarind, newer names like Krazy Kebab and Lazeez (a chain from Shiraz) and a lesser known India Restaurant from Khidirpur. We stared with Chicken Peshawari Kebab from Aliah, suggested by partner Shamim saab (known to A and P). Malabar shrimp biriyani from Tamarind, mutton biriyani from India Restaurant, mutton chanp from Royal and firni from Aliah (courtesy Shamim saab) followed. Liked all. The rich, sinful mutton biriyani with succulent meat pieces lead to an encore at the end. But the shrimp biriyani (incl. portion size) didn't work for us. Met Poorna, fellow blogger, at the venue. We kept on collecting food and moving to a dark corner to polish it off standing, till we got a place to sit. An experience to savour for long!
