When was the last time you ate Mac & Cheese pakoras? How about a Masala corndog or Badmaash Indian poutine. How about Oreo cookie gulab jamun or sweet and spicy roti chips? Well take a metaphorical stroll down “New Delhi’s streets” with food pop-up Delhi Eats. Inspired by a true love for food mashups, the flavours range from spicy,
sweet, tangy, tossed in with some surprising textures invented by the wickedly evil imagination of 2nd generation foodie and chef Jessie Lehail.
A balance of comfort, ’sans precedent’, Delhi Eats epitomizes the snap, crackle and pop of the upstart Canadian street food culture daring to ask India’s culinary traditions for a dance.Recently, Delhi Eats collaborated with the BC Blueberry Council to create the Bhangra Burger that featured a samosa smashed between a pickled slaw, an airy bun, and a savoury BC Blueberry Ginger Chutney.
Delhi Eats’ crew is Lehail and her sister, a friendly bunch, happy to supply chit-chat and gup shup to eaters with questions. Delhi Eats is located at the Surrey Night Market, every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 6 to 11pm. More about the menu…here’s a snapshot of Delhi Eats food items: Oreo Cookie Galab Jamun: Indian doughnut batter stuffed with oreo cookies.
