There’s a turning point in every Indian foodie’s life when you have to play the pause button of eating pizza, burgers or wraps and instead choose that cuisine that an Indian foodie is familiar with.
After getting bored or tired of trying those everyday Italian dishes or Mediterranean cuisine, it was time to explore the cuisine from the Northern and central parts of India.
For me, it was a magic moment to try out these dishes as I was craving them. So yeah! I know how to cook and cook a few words, but spending some money is okay.
So, I visited a restaurant called the House of Flavours in Reading. Reading is a town located in Berkshire city. The nearest city is London which is around 30 mins away.
It was a Sunday when I visited there to try out their vast buffet menu for 16 Pounds(Rs.1600). It’s only available during weekends, and you have to book a reservation because many foodies visit here.
Firstly, the decor is decent, nothing too fancy, and secondly, I love their Indian playlist: all the Shahrukh Khan songs, the Amitabh Bachan, the Ranveer Singh, or the Madhuri Dixit.
Now about food, the thumb rule which I follow whenever I go for a buffet meal is only to eat starters and dessert because most of the restaurants don’t cook main course meals properly.
They had a wide range of starter sections, and these are as follows:
1. Chaat Section (Pani Puri and Papdi Chaat).
2. Chole Bhature (Really tasty)
3. Tikka Section (Chicken Malai Tikka is a must try)
4. Pav Bhaji
5. Aloo Tikki , Khasta Kachori and Vada
After eating a lot from the starter section, you could also try the Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani and Dal Makhani from the main course section.
Have you tried Dal Makhani (Instead of Korma) with Biryani? If not, then please try it out. You will love it.
Overall, a wonderful experience and worth it.
