Delhi Mahal has three locations in Buenos Aires, and we have eaten at the San Telmo location (near Bolivar and Chile) on two occasions.We were there both times for lunch and ordered from the set lunch menu, which includes pakora, an entree, and dessert.We realized the second time that we had ordered the same thing the first time -- it was really good! The first was the pork dish, the second was a vegetable option. There are a couple of meat options, a couple of vegetarian options, and a few "light" choices. The first time I ordered a mango lassi -- they are two for one during lunch, but it was so big that I sort of regretted the second one. It was a little too sour and yogurt-y for my taste. I had the mango version, but passionfruit is also an option.During our second meal, we enjoyed another two-for-one beverage: the Ginger Break. Lime juice, mint, and ginger, it's a little bit fizzy and both sweet and sour -- absolutely delicious. It was exactly what we needed after a long walk on that hot day.On our first visit, we were not served our dessert -- be on the lookout! I've actually had this happen to me at more than one restaurant in South America. Many set lunch menus include a dessert, but I've had to remind the waiter to bring it on more than one occasion. The second time, it came right out after our plates were cleared -- gulab jamon, a favorite of mine since I visited India.Both times during lunch, there were only a couple of other diners there when we were. The waiters are pleasant, the food is good, and we'll be going back there for sure.
