Ai, District Centre, Saket, New Delhi
In this season of barbecues, Japanese specialty restaurant, ai, has introduced a wood- fired oven recently. So apart from the delicious sushi, you now have the option of many other delicacies. The advantage of the wood- fired oven over a regular grill is always evident in the distinctive taste that the meat gets. There are only a few dishes in the selected menu so we recommend that you try as much as you can. There is Assorted Mushroom Toban Yaki, Wood Fire Grilled Seasonal Vegetables ( with sea salt, shichimi, sansho), Wood Fire Grilled Tenderloin in Spicy Sesame Sauce, Wood Fire Grilled Corn Fed Chicken in a Miso Glaze, Wood Fire Breakfast Platter ( with homemade chicken sausage, bacon and egg) and of course, Wood Fire Grilled New Zealand Lamb Chop. There is also a unique dish on this tasty menu, which is the Wood Fire Oven Freshly Bake Cake with Organic Honey and vanilla icecream.
The emphasis in this menu, that is served on the lovely terrace of the restaurant is on two things: the ingredients and the cooking method and time in the wood- fired oven. Go here for any meal, breakfast or lunch, and you will surely get scrumptious food with a distinct flavor.
