Delhi Streets

A few weeks ago we dropped by Delhi Streets for some lunch. Here you can get a meal for around $10-$12, or try some of their street chaat or wraps for even less money. The seating area is not big and we visited during peak lunch hour, but we managed to grab an empty spot by the window. The three of us ordered 3 meals, 1 street chaat, 1 dessert and a mango lassi.

Aloo Tikki – potato & green pea cakes served with onions, coriander, mint chutney and yoghurt with tamarind ($7)

This was the only dish we ordered that we didn’t like. We’ve had aloo tikki before at other restaurants, but not like this… too salty, spicy and a tiny bit sweet all at once, but not in a good way. Rather than complimenting each other, the different flavours were just overwhelming. Maybe they made a mistake with the seasoning.

Fitzroy: Hammer & Tong and N2 Extreme Gelato

We think there’s nothing better on a warm Summer morning than having a leisurely brunch and a big scoop of gelato. Sure, brunch is also enjoyable in Winter and it’s never too cold for ice cream, but ‘Summer’ translates to ‘holidays’ for us students, which means we can just relax and enjoy ourselves. No exams! Time to eat all the food!

Roule Galette crêperie – sweet and savoury

Route Galette’s menu include’s a selection of savoury buckwheat crêpes called ‘galettes’, as well as sweet crêpes. We were eager to try the food here because of the positive reviews on urbanspoon, combined with the fact that the prices are reasonable for a sit down crêperie (in the $7-15 range). The crêpes we ordered turned out to be quite large, but we felt like they needed a bit more filling in them to give them a better crêpe to filling ratio.

complète galette

. ‘Complète’ galette – egg, ham and Emmental cheese ($10)

Wendy ~ When the crêpe arrived, my first initial impression of it wasn’t good at all because it looked pretty ordinary. The taste of it pretty much matched the description: egg, ham and cheese. It was a ‘galette’ which meant that it was made from buckwheat, so it didn’t quite have the same texture as crêpes made from white flour. Overall it wasn’t a bad taste experience, just ordinary.
