As soon as you start climbing up the stairs to this cafe tucked in the backlanes of one of Delhi’s popular restaurant hubs, “Khan Market”, you realise “hey! I have been here before!” The Blue Door Cafe has taken a lot more than just location from its erstwhile incumbent, Mrs. Kaur’s crepes, the layout and seating plan remain the same and so does the menu, to a large extent!

Not that its a bad thing, Mrs. Kaurs crepes was one of the few places serving good breakfast in Delhi, and I think most people would be familiar with their desserts!

The ambience is friendly and so is the staff, but neither makes a lasting impression so I will jump straight to the food, here is what we ordered:

1. Barbe-cued chicken wings:  A classic starter served in almost all cafes, the chicken was fried to perfection, but it was covered in a sweet barbecue sauce and since I am not a fan of sweet tasting savoury food, this one did not go down well with me!

2. The Blue door cafe boasts of a wide variety of options when it comes to crepes so we decided to give it a try. We ordered the Crepe Le Coq (a mix of mushroom and chicken in a white cheese sauce), and I have to say I was highly disappointed, the crepe was very chewy and I could taste the dough, as for the filling, it had nice flavours but definitely needed to be more creamy!

3. Last but definitely not the least, we ordered a simple Arrabiata pasta, “Arrabiata de pollo“, it is a bit tough to go wrong with this and they did not, this dish saved the day/ meal.

Although their waffles smelled great, but after the food experience I was not left with much of an appetite for dessert, hopefully my next time here would be a lot more satisfactory considering they have a pretty massive menu that includes some interesting dishes!
