What: Lucky Diner Dilli, 13A, 1st floor, Hauz Khas Village, call 837398606, Rs 400 for a meal for two without drinks.
Why: Every dish at this tiny ruby coloured cafteen (café meets canteen) costs Rs 100, which in a pricey neighbourhood like Hauz Khas Village, is a welcome (pocket) change. bpb loved the pork and pepperoni omelet served with mashed potatoes and garlic bread; and slathered-in-white-butter parathas, especially the crisp and spicy mooli version. Stay away from the chicken burger with stale buns and the chewy hot dogs. The service here is friendly, and impromptu hot sauce concoctions starring chili flakes, mustard and mayo are whipped up on request. Watch out for the full review on Monday, July 2!
When: You want to grin and budget.
