#FoodShaukeen #Ruciraa #Newbie #PureVeg
Before going to any new restaurant (place which I havent visited yet), I often open Zomato or foodie groups to check out the place, reviews and their menu. So was the case with #Ruciraa and felt that the menu was pretty simple with regular dishes (not that a place shouldn’t have such menu, just that I expected something different from their uncommon name).
Located bang Opp to Cineplanet in kompally, I have reached this place in the mid afternoons of a weekend and was pleasantly surprised with their lovely ambience. Their staff were very courteous to welcome from entrance and ensured that I had a comfortable place to seat.
Cuisine/Dine-in Type : South Indian/North Indian and all day south Indian breakfast.
Capacity : This place can easily accommodate upto 100 pax and they were almost half full the day we visited.
Prices : their all day breakfast is priced between 50 to 100. Other lunch and dinner dishes are priced within 200 with couple of exceptions.
They have an amazing chef from Chettinad region who prepares some mouth watering South Indian Dishes, our bad that he was on leave the day we visited.
Cream of Mushroom, Manchow and Noodles Soup was part of Soups. Cream of Mushrooms prepared with mix of cream and flour and finely chopped mushrooms to enjoy in every sip. My pick among their Soups – it was yummy . Had it been a little more thicker, this would have been a killer. Manchow soup was equally good. Noodles soup was pretty average for me and could have been better.
Mushroom barwan and Paneer nawabi tikka among starters plated very good and tasted better than that. However, both of these had similar taste ( both uses chat masala as base flavor) – distinguishing these would help these dishes to be more enjoyable.
Paneer achari tikka stood true to its name in taste. In both Paneer starters, had Paneer was much softer/tender than it was ( though it was fresh, it wasn’t as soft/tender as I expected) – these starters would have taken me to the lovely gastronomical world.
Also tried our hands at Chinese starters with Chilli Paneer and schezwan babycorn – both of them were tasty and fresh.
South Indian Thali – Priced at 160/- with unlimited servings, is truly a delight for Thali takers. Our experience with this was not so great, however management promised that this would be much better had their main chef was available. Would try again when their chef is available.
Veg Chettinad : Delectable flavors and aroma made this one of the best dishes of the lunch. Garlic Naan and masala Kulcha were perfect sides for this
Veg Biryani : Being a hard-core biryani lover, I generally do not prefer having veg version, if there is a choice. However, must agree that their biryani was luscious and a joy to my taste buds and tummy. Nicely cooked/steamed veggies perfectly complimented biryani.
Breakfast dishes : We tried Rava Dosa, Masala Dosa and peserattu. While Peserattu, Rava Dosa tasted very good, Masala Dosa batter needed better fermentation. Both their chutney and sambar were delicious.
Their in-house desserts carrot halwa and freshly made kova ka gulab jamun provided a delightful end to scrumptious food journey. Both these desserts were priced very economically at 65/-.
Bottomline : Don’t go by the name of the dishes, if you are looking at menu in zomato, they are quite deceiving. Enjoy their delicious food at moderate prices and a relaxing ambience. Don’t expect some special dishes. Their regular dishes are ‘special’. There might be no dish which made me feel out of the world, but none of the dishes gave me an average experience too.
