Kala Burger Wala

KBW is an institution. Don't believe me - ask anyone in West Delhi.

So much so, the road its situated on (in Subhash Nagar, West Delhi) has no name, atleast I couldn't find it. When asked, pat came the reply - "रोड के नाम की ज़रुरत नहीं. खाली काला बर्गेर वाला बोल दी जिए (Don't worry about the name of the road. Just ask for Kala Burger Wala)".

Joginder Singh Khurana, the man behind Kala Burger Wala says he opened his shop in 1990. Since then is a hugely popular evening takeaway joint for the residents of Subhash Nagar and Rajouri Garden.

The name, KBW comes from the most popular dish on the menu - The Burger.

To be honest, I'm not fond of fried burgers (buns being deep fried). That's a big No-No for me. I tend to avoid all the Gupta Burger Centers (most of them hand carts serving fried burgers) and similar joints. They taste ok, but too oily and very little flavour or texture.

But when I tasted KBW, it stumped me. The first time I had the burger, I didn't realise that the bun was fried. It was very skilfully done.

I was very impressed.
