Adding to the charm of Delhi’s Lodhi Colony, which is always a delight to visit, is a gorgeous new restaurant offering home-style regional Indian food. From the people behind PCO, ATM, Ping’s Cafe Orient and PDA comes this new casual dining restaurant and bar called Jamun. The intention of Jamun is to transport you back to your childhood days and make you savour flavours that you would have grown up eating with your family.
Stylishly done-up in peppy shades of purple and pink, and goblet-like lamps to light up the space, the interiors reflect how little touches can spruce things up miraculously. The menu is extensive, including a mix of forgotten recipes and popular dishes from all corners of the Indian subcontinent. You can expect Malabar Tenderloin Pepper Fry, Shikampuri Kebab, Bharwan Gucchi, Bhetki Paturi, Andaman Rock Lobster, Chicken Cafreal, Laal Maas, Malwani Fish Thali, Assamese Pork Curry, Thepla and so many more regional delicacies.
The bar menu is intriguing with regional Indian ingredients being used to shake up exciting cocktails such as the Drunken Panna, Jamun Old Fashioned, Maid in India, Kokum Daiquiri and Tamarind Margarita to name a few. The non-alcoholic beverage boasts of nostalgic Indian favourites, while the cocktail list is a toast to classic cocktails, reimagined with signature twists. With a focus on freshness and ‘farm-to-table’ philosophy, Jamun’s food and beverage menu is about authenticity, with a slight accent of style.
In order to further elevate the food and beverage experience, an additional key feature of the restaurant is a retail space, with organic and artisanal small-batch produce and products that reflect the diversity and soul of India.
