If you own a piece in the heart of the city, you certainly deserve an applause. But when you slowly leave your mark everywhere, you’re a legend.

Completing the trilogy, Priyank Sukhija has opened yet another fabulous restaurant in Connaught place, cleverly named Open House. After the success of Warehouse Café and The Town House Café, he has brought in a wholesome Pan Asian joint to CP, known to be a heaven for foodies. The place will serve Cantonese food with specialties like Schezwan, Sushi and Cheung Fun. Spread over a HUGE space, this restaurant serves 45 different kinds of dim sum.

I was one of the few lucky ones, who were invited for a preview (how I love being a foodie) of Open House. We were served a delicious array of dishes ranging from soups, dim sum, crispy veggies, sushi, salads, noodles, rice and some really funky cocktails. Not only the food tasted amazing, but it was plated in a contemporary and beautiful manner.

Delicious starters and dim sum such as Krab Jeb Pak, Green and Carrot dumplings, Chiu chow dumplings, Chicken and Prawn Sui Mai and Cantonese Prawn Rolls were outstanding.

However, my absolute favourite were Chicken Poached Peking dumplings. They were juicy, dipped in the tastiest mix of soy, rice wine and sesame oil. These were just beyond my expectations.

This was followed by a beautiful Mango and Prawn salad, which was extremely flavourful and fresh. The freshness of lettuce, chopped mango and pickled radish, along with spicy cold prawns, is just what you need in summers.

And now the icing on the cake, the main course. Pan Fried Steamed Fish with Asam sauce served with a bowl full of steamed rice. This thick, spicy and tangy sauce was perfectly balanced with light boneless big pieces of steamed fish. The steamed rice a perfectly balanced the tanginess of the curry.

Usually, I like small eating joints, as they put me at ease, while big places sort of overwhelm me. However, as I stay close to CP, I would often glance upon the hoarding for Open House and wonder, when will this place open. I knew, that owing to its legacy and awesome location, the whole of Delhi will go crazy after this cool new hangout. And after finally visiting the restaurant and enjoying the wonderful hospitality and delectable food, to the core, I’ve realised, that if I just love my food, the size of the place doesn’t really matter.

If the preview had such amazing food, I definitely can’t wait for Open House to OPEN.
