S&S recommends: Boozy weekend brunch At Dirty Apron by The Piano Man

Delhi loves to brunch and there are plenty of places that are doing it right. My latest discovery is Dirty Apron by The Piano Man that works as a charming little corner for a quiet brunch with cocktails, with a fantastic retro playlist and plenty of warm sunlight peeping in from its large glass windows.
It was a sunny but cold Sunday afternoon and I wanted to start off with something warm. Our server suggested their well-loved Broccoli and cheddar soup and I was instantly game. Quite frankly, it was love at first sip. Small chunks of garlic and broccoli floated in a creamy soup with a well-toasted garlic bread slice on the side. Next up, we called for the cocktails. DJ's cliffhanger tasted as interesting as it sounds, made with gin, honey  kaffir lime, basil orange bitters anf finished with tonic water. Our second drink, Dancing on the piano keys was simpler and sweeter: white rum, lemongrass, star anise and passion fruit puree. 

For munchies, we called for the Mushroom and asparagus phyllo rolls. Crispy on the outside and a spicy, gooey stuffing on the inside, this one is the perfect appetiser to go with the flavoursome cocktails at Dirty Apron. Next came the Make-your-own tacos with a yummy bean stuffing, veggies, salsa, sour scream, guacamole and cheddar cheese. I loved each and every component on the platter but wasn't very happy with the slightly hard taco-shell. I anyway prefer soft shell on my tacos and so I might be biased. 

The dish that I enjoyed the most was Penne pasta in red sauce which came with the perfect tomato-based sauce, veggies and lots of basil. The default penne on their menu comes with a white cheese and mushroom sauce but you can request for your preferred one.

We also ordered the Peanut and vegetable dimsums but wasn't blown away by them- the stuffing was too mushy for my taste.

We ended the afternoon on the perfect note with a Boozy Tiramisu which came encased in a chocolate shell. It was moist, creamy, and had a nice balance of coffee and chocolate. I also loved the presentation, complete with a dainty mint leaves on the top. 

A Sunday brunch at Dirty Apron will set you back between INR 3000-3500 for two, inclusive of cocktails and is definitely worth a try! For more updates around food, fashion and travel, follow me on Instagram.
