5th August 2015 – 6.45pm
I had been here once before and on the first day of the fringe this year we decided that as the weather wasn’t up to much, we’d try our chances here instead of one of the outdoor food stalls. 10 to 10 is a very small café/restaurant. It is beautifully adorned with colourful silks and sheets. You will be cosying up to those on the table adjacent to you but don’t let this put you off. As we were really just having a quick bite between shows, we both opted for the meat mixed plate for an incredibly cheap £5.95 each.
When the plate arrived it was full of a nice range of delights. Firstly I tried the samosa which was full of depth and the outside was crispy without flaking into pieces. I then tried both the chicken pakora and the bhaji. The chicken pakora was definitely the triumph, packing an amazing amount of flavour without the need for heat. There was also a spoonful of what I think was cous cous or a similar type grain and a spoonful of coleslaw. These added an element of neutrality to enable them to pick up the flavours elsewhere on the plate. Then the main event, still on the same plate, was the chicken and channa masala curry which was accompanied by a plentiful amount of stripped garlic naan. Whilst the curry wasn’t one that knocked my socks off, it was a decent offering, albeit a little more bland than my normal choice of curry. There was plenty of chicken in it though. The naan was also beautifully soft.
Overall, 10 to 10 in Delhi offers amazing value and is worth checking out.
