The Plate • Fresh ingredients, carefully prepared: a good meal
25 - 50 USD
With its selection of creative shared plates, aRoqa ensures that reasonably priced, contemporary Indian food is now easier to find. Inside, the aura is more romantic than family-friendly, courtesy of the talented team behind other successes like Bhatti Grill and Moti Mahal Delux. Embellished menu descriptions seem to promise the world, but deliver dishes that are familiar and Indian at heart, finished with creative flair. Thoroughly enjoyable starters include spiced mushroom duxelles wrapped with crispy shredded phyllo and creamy goat cheese. Don't forget to also sample the khade tamatar ka murgh, served as bone-in chicken drumsticks in a rich, sweet and spicy tomato-butter curry that practically begs to be sopped up by a toasty onion seed-flecked naan.
