Wrap up a delight


FIRST THINGS first. This is one place where parking is a delight. You can virtually park anywhere and go. There is ample space and adequate security. And as you enter Superstars restaurant even the usual hustle-bustle of Noida's's sector 18 diminishes. All that one hears is some lovely piped music, now playing Doors, now Phil Collins. The seats are comfortable without being garish, sleek without being too thin. The menu is one for all-rounders. There are absolutely delectable fish finger chips that cry for another helping. There is the good old chicken tikka, and the shami kababs are as good as you are likely to get anywhere. Instead of the usual circular ones that often stick to the plate or break as you lift them, these kababs are like kofta in shape and quite enjoyable with a little helping of yogurt in the centre.

The ambience is not too impressive, but that is probably to ensure that you spend time eating, and not looking for a feast for the eyes. In any case if you are so inclined, try the first floor. It is for those who swing along with a dreamy-eyed mate. And the helpful manager tells us, not too bad an idea if all you have to do is have your cutlets with all the time at your disposal.

Oh! By the way, Superstars is just turning a new leaf. It is warming up to winter with a Wraps menu, which is nothing but a treat varied and delectable. On offer is chicken fajita, hot slices of char-grilled chicken on a bed of grilled onions and bell peppers rolled in tortillas. It is accompanied with rice and salsa. Then one can try out chicken tandoori wrap, which has strips of chicken rolled in roomali roti coated with egg. Of course, for vegetarians, there are chimichanga fajitas.

The restaurant, cheek by jowl with the Great Kabab Factory, started off as a Mexican delight. But as Indians pressed for Indian fare, reality usurped the space reserved for a dream. And you and I ended up with a restaurant that provides fare that is pocket-friendly and not too heavy on your stomach.

Z.S.
