Hidden amid the National Craft Museum, which is dedicated to Indian craftsmanship in Delhi, Café Lota offers a calm and serene atmosphere from the surrounding urban bustle. Under a large gazebo, the terrace is a haven of cool. Make sure you have a reservation to enjoy it, as it is very popular and in demand. Here, specialities of Indian gastronomy – especially from the north of the country – are prepared with a modern twist. The menu changes regularly, according to seasons and availability of local products. It will be hard to choose among roasted lotus steamed dumplings served with a yogurt cream, scallions and cashew nuts, the traditional Rajasthan chicken curry or the slow-cooked mutton in coconut milk and coriander… For sides, Café Lota sheds a light on ancient cereals: millet, red rice and amaranth will take you to the roots of Indian gastronomy. In this quest for authenticity, the restaurant also offers traditional breakfasts that you undoubtedly revel in!
