India Trip Day 13 / Lunch In Delhi At “Smoke House Deli”

インド旅行13日目、ランチは「Smoke House Deli」に行きました。デリーは交通渋滞が酷く短距離でも移動に時間がかかってしまいますしわたしたちは土地勘がないので、エージェントの方に観光をしている場所から近いところでオススメをお聞きして行ったカフェでした。 Smoke House Deli はチェーン店でムンバイなどにもあるようですが、デリーには5軒あるようです。

India Trip Day 13.  For lunch, we went to “Smoke House Deli”.  The traffic is crazy in Delhi and it took a long time to travel a short distance by car.  We didn’t have a good idea of the area so we asked the agent to suggest a place near where we were around lunch time and he suggested this place for us.  It’s a chain cafe, it looks like they have quite a few around India including Mumbai and have 5 outlets in Delhi.

2人ともサンドイッチをオーダーしたのですが、パンも出てきました。

We both ordered sandwiches but they gave us bread as well while we were waiting.

何かは忘れてしまいましたが、夫とわたしそれぞれにサンドイッチをオーダーし、半分ずつシェアーしました。どちらもとても美味しかったです。

I cannot remember what filling but we ordered different sandwiches and shared – they were both very good.

雰囲気は日本や香港やシンガポールにありそうなフランス風のカフェっぽいおしゃれな雰囲気で、ここがインドということを忘れてしまいます。サンドイッチもとても美味しかったです。

The decor was like some French style cafe in Japan, Hong Kong or Singapore, very nice and very clean.  You forget this is in India quite easily.  The sandwiches were great, too.

14日の間に数品塩辛すぎるものもありましたが、基本、インドでの食事は美味しかったですし、例えば香港やシンガポールやイギリスでよくあるような極端に塩味がなかったり極端に塩辛すぎたりということがほとんどありませんでしたし、味付けのバランスも良いものがほとんどでした。(わたしが好む味付けより塩分が強かったですが、多かったり少なかったりではなくコンスタントに大体どこでも同じくらいのレベルでした。)インドの方はスパイシーなものをたくさん召し上がる方が多いと思うので意外ですが、味付けに関するセンスが良いような気がします。

In 14 days, there were only a few dishes that were too salty, basically the food in India was really good.  In Hong Kong, Singapore and England, I’ve had many that didn’t have any seasoning (or almost none) or so salty that I couldn’t eat even in expensive restaurants, but in India that very seldom happened, most of the were well seasoned but not extreme (although they were more salty than what I would personally like they were consistent), well balanced.  It’s a little surprising to me considering they often have spicy foods, but I think they in general have very good taste sense for cooking.
