Visit Date : 19 December 2016
What a shocker you’re saying or “does he go anywhere else”….and to answer that its a yes but this is becoming one of my fav places to go when I am out.
I had arranged with 3 of my friends to go to Chaakoo, two have never been and the other has once with me before.
As always the staff were very welcoming and again the atmosphere was really nice, do check out my other reviews here as I do review different food etc.
Hope you’re sitting down……tonight’s visit I have kept my promise and tried different dishes.
Chicken Lababdar £5.95
Lababdar is Hindi for soft & creamy, this chicken tikka dish is cooked in a rich brown onion gravy & butter sauce with capsicums, tomatoes & cream, in the traditional Andhra style.
This was a complete “let’s see what this is like”, never had this and anytime I have been in Chaakoo with anyone they have never had this.
I am glad I tried this, it was very nice and the tikka and the cream sauce were perfect. I kept the chicken in the dish and found it very large and difficult to cut up etc so next time I would put it on a plate as I feel that would be better.
This is one I would have again.
Ok so before I move on to my next two dishes, you need to know I am not a salad or a vegetable guy. Put them down in front of me and they will not get touched, two things I really hate.
That being said the next two dishes are very healthy and dishes I wouldn’t normally order….ok ok I did have the Paneer the last time but still, it counts for this visit.
Saag Paneer £5.95
(V) a classic jalfrezi dish of spiced spinach, studded with cubes of creamy fried paneer cheese.
What can I say this is a very nice and light dish, its good flavour and one I will have again.
Gobi Manchurian £3.95
(V) Calcuttan fried cauliflower, garlic, chilli & ginger.
Ok so if someone said here have some cauliflower I would say no thanks, but my last visit with Emma and Wendy this dish was had and it looked nice.
I am so glad I tried this, this was amazing the flavour was good and the crunchiness of the cauliflower added to it.
MIRCH & CHOKALET
Cocchi Torino, Arbikie chilli vodka, fresh orange, nutmeg, egg white — Sweet with subtle spice and the texture of a cloud
I have to have a cocktail when I am out, and yes I had this last time but it’s a good one. This was a little freebie tonight so thanks again Denny 🙂 Cheers
MANGO LASSI £3.75
The Mango Lassi has always been a favourite of mine when I go to an Indian restaurant, and the last time when I tried it here I was very disappointed. It was too icy and did not have enough flavour, but I had heard this had been improved so I thought let’s see.
This was more like it, the texture was perfect, sweet and full of flavour this was a perfect Mango Lassi the way it should be 🙂
Overall another perfect evening and my friends all enjoyed the food and the night. Please do check out my other reviews for here, and please do visit Chaakoo you won’t regret it.
