Fun, colourful and full of flavour: hop to Delhi via the CBD

Delhi-born banker-turned-chef Charan Singh comes from a food family: his dad Resham moved his family to Melbourne when Charan was five, and opened Melbourne’s first Indian sweet shop – a shrine to gulab jamun, kulfi and jalebi – in Dandenong.

Though Charan has put his dad Resham in charge of the tandoor oven at Delhi Streets, he’s not relying on tradition. Instead, this fun-loving, colour-pop restaurant aims to deliver less ghee and cream, and more modernity: M&M-infused naan bread, for example. The street food-inspired menu includes spiced chickpea burgers (this is a beef-free zone), panipuri with a coriander kick, house-made pastes (try the tamarind) and Kulfi ice-cream pops – try the pistachio version, made with condensed milk and flavoured with pistachios, cardamon, saffron and cinnamon.

Cool down any spice flames with a chilled Kingfisher beer; Charan’s currently developing a cocktail menu, too – expect bold flavours and bright colours.
