Pincode Restaurant, helmed by renowned chef Kunal Kapur, has finally arrived in the heart of India's bustling capital city, Delhi, marking its debut after a successful run in Dubai earlier this year. Located in the serene neighbourhood of Civil Lines in North Delhi, the restaurant offers a unique and refreshing perspective on Indian cuisine, one that draws inspiration from Chef Kunal's personal experiences, family recipes, and India's diverse regional flavours. What sets Pincode apart from other Indian restaurants is its approach to food. Chef Kunal believes that food is not just about taste but also about creating an emotional connection with diners, and he achieves this by infusing each dish with his unique flair and personal touch. The menu features a range of dishes that pay homage to India's rich culinary heritage, while also incorporating new and exciting flavours and ingredients.
The Concept of Pincode
Chef Kunal Kapur explains that food is not just a means to satisfy hunger, but also a journey back to our roots, a way to relive memories, and a celebration of our culture. Pincode's goal is not just to tantalize your taste buds but to transport you to a bygone era, to evoke memories of the sights, sounds, and aromas of your childhood.
The menu at Pincode is an exciting journey of classic Indian dishes mixed with innovative creations, including Chaat Hummus, Dhokla Chaat, and Falooda. Chef Kunal's recommendations include the Pressure Cooker Chicken Curry, Malai Prawns, Lamb Seekh Tawa Masala, and the must-try Old Delhi Style Bread Pudding.
The interior design of Pincode is a masterful fusion of traditional and modern elements, featuring the inviting warmth of Pandamo flooring, personalized artwork, and historical photos of Delhi, providing a thought-provoking visual journey through the city's rich cultural heritage. The space also boasts a stunning ceramic utensil wall installation by Claymen, adding an element of artistry and craftsmanship to the environment.
