If you want to relish Japanese cuisine beyond sushi and sea food in a pretty ‘home like’ restaurant, you should be heading to Guppy, tucked in a quiet corner of Lodi colony market in Delhi.
What Is It?
I have always been very fond of Guppy for many reasons. First, I love the cheerful kitschy décor. It feels like you’re going back to your younger days and makes you want to start dating all over again. Believe me, the charming props and live music is very tempting for that twosome candle light mode.
Second, the hugely talented Chef Vikram Khatri never fails to impress me. His impeccable style and attention to details is remarkable. He makes it a point to reach out to the guest’s table and explain his dishes.
Third, I like the way it sounds and means. At the restaurant, look for the water body with a stream of metallic Guppies (tropical fish) strung together like a stream of a river.
What To Eat?
Based on the concept of ‘shun’, here chefs choose dishes according to the fresh ingredient of the season when it tastes the best. So the summer menu features alphonso mangoes sushi, chilled green tea flavoured noodles, fennel, Sweet Lime & Greens Salad, Edamame & Corn Cake, Grilled Chinese Cabbage & Miso Tofu.
Guppy’s signature items are an all time hit like ‘Tiger Prawn Tempura Udon’ – Japanese udon noodles served with soy flavoured dashi broth and crisp fried Tempura; ‘Guppy Signature Black Cod’ – black miso marinated black cod served on a hot stone; Chashu Ramen in pork broth slow cooked for 72 hours; and ‘Grilled Jumbo Prawn’ – served with assorted veggies and peppered garlic.
The food is a fair balance of veg, non veg and seafood. You could taste the spicy, the tangy, and the exotic all in one bite.
