Endless eateries open and shut every single day, and considering a city like New-Delhi the numbers are substantially high. The real success of a restro lies in standing tall with racing time; if it has the magic of being a crowd magnet day after day and year after year, even after 5 to 10 years of its opening, this is very well in the limited number of places that can be called successful.
Berco’s is one such name, which is arguably the first slightly Pan-Asian with heavily blended Chinese restaurant in city. Most Delhi-ites still swear this to be the place that got them started on fine quality based Chinese in city limits. Even today this is easily the cheapest Chinese food in NCR region with a pleasing experience. The place has come up with its 17th branch based out of Greater-Kailash 1, M-block market.
Beautiful interiors and a lovely experience are well guaranteed with good food over cheap price – I cannot think of anything more to ask for being honest. I was a guest here, on the invitation of TWCI (The Writer’s Collective of India). Unlike other branches, I was greeted with Jasmine tea to start with and what followed was our order of Chicken and noodle soup with burnt garlic ,which was great clear soup with a great texture as a whole, but maybe a little more garlic would have worked better as per me.
Next in line was appetizer section with Garlic and cheese wantons & shredded chicken with dry chillies. The wantons were magical with soft cheese melting in mouth and the chicken was great tasting with minimal additions and cooking involved.
The mains section wasn’t far behind with Stir-fried Asian greens, Thai red chicken curry with garlic steam rice. To me, the litmus test for Thai lies in Thai green or Thai red curry, which passed with a greater margin as compared to other resto’s. Even the Asian green vegetables were exceptionally fresh looking with each element equally pungent on taste buds and not over shadowed by the sauce.
Our next line of order was sliced fish in chilli bean sauce and Phat Thai noodles diced with chicken. The fish was soft and would simply melt in mouth while the Thai flat noodles were just the way they should be. From the desserts section I opted for the most exceptional sounding dish, which was Date roll with ice-cream, where the roll was a bit harder than my expectation and the date was too mild in flavor.
The PLF for the place is 1100 INR, the place can be contacted on (011)41835555 and the suggestive orders are Garlic & cheese wantons, Stir-fry Asian greens and Thai curry.
