Hitchki, meaning ‘hiccup’ in Hindi serves modern Indian cuisine with a twist. Already a favourite on the streets of Mumbai, this franchise is an ode to nostalgia with a menu that reads like a gastropub.
Located in the heart of Dubai, the restaurant sets up shop in The Grand Millennium Hotel, Barsha Heights.
Offering up a new spin on many childhood favourites, the dishes are a take on modern Indian dishes. Regional and traditional flavours from across the country are brought together with a medley of alternative cuisines from around the world, including bountiful options for vegetarians and vegans too. Think Charlie chapli kebab, crispy chicken Kkurana , PP’s spinach risotto which features cottage cheese and crispy okra and kewada lasoon biryani.
Those with a sweet tooth are encouraged to eat carefully, filling up before dessert at their own risk. The signature Baratiyon Ka Swagat, as an example, features a chocolate filled fondant with paan pasand jelly and perfectly pink candy floss. The banofee bomb is comprised of a caramelised banana, pecan nuts, banana cake, and chocolate topped with salted caramel.
For those looking to spice things up Bhat Saab Ki Chai mixes vodka, kahula, and masala chai with a swirl of candy floss on the top while the Genda Phool Marigold is gin based with a sweet-sour mix. Guests can also bring back childhood memories with a round of Tipsy Colas.
“It’s a very chic Indian concept for the global audience, adapted to the Middle Eastern palette,” explains Arjun Raj Kher, brand head, Hitchki.
“It’s casual and energetic ambiance along with nostalgic food and drink elements make the perfect space for themed evenings. A signature will be the Bollywood Nights.”
