Wild Wild West, I learnt, has three branches in Delhi. Now, of course, the eating places are shut, however its meals is being delivered by Swiggy and Zomato. The supply menu contains pizzas, pastas, calzones, salads, and sandwiches. The predominant programs have dishes akin to grilled greens with basil pesto sauce and smoked hen fillets.

We requested for a Meaty Submarine (₹350), with iceberg, onions, black olives and sundried tomatoes, hen sausages, pork pepperoni and bacon bits, served with chipotle and mustard sauce; Grilled Chicken Breast in Cosmic Mushroom Sauce, with Grilled Vegetables (₹440), hen peri peri with sautéed mushroom and herbed rice (₹400) and Spinach and Sundried Tomato Pasta (₹390).
My order was the submarine, for I’ve a protracted and completely satisfied relationship with this dish. I keep in mind the juicy submarines I had at Cellars (which later became a spot known as The Parlour) in CP. This is basically a much bigger and thicker hotdog, with numerous sorts of fillings.
The chilli-lover at dwelling loved the peri peri hen, which got here submerged in a pink sauce. I had a spoonful of the sauce, and located that whereas it was spicy, it was nonetheless not as scorching as I’d have favored it to be.
We had imagined one thing else after we ordered the grilled hen, too. I’d thought the sauce could be on the aspect, but it surely got here dunked in the mushroom gravy, which was only a bit too wealthy and creamy.
My submarine was glorious, although. It was effectively packed, and full of sufficient meat to be known as a meaty submarine. I loved the crunchy iceberg and the tart sundried tomatoes, flavours and textures that went effectively with the meats. I favored the pasta, too (though it was a bit too tacky) and savoured the pine nuts that it had been garnished with.
Wild Wild West doffs its hat to the Indian palate. So in the pizza section, whereas it has one thing known as an Expatriate Pizza (with marinara sauce, mozzarella, child corn, black olives, sundried tomatoes and jalapenos) and Sausage Fest Pizza, it additionally has Paneer Makhni Pizza and Butter Chicken Pizza. The menu features a Butter Chicken Calzone and a Paneer Tikkalicious Salad.
I didn’t enterprise anyplace there, of course. We had been in search of what is recognized (in some circles) as “Conti” meals. Overall, I feel we had fairly a pleasant meal, which we ended with some desi home-made suji halwa (cooked in only a wee bit of oil and stevia).
And then, after my dinner, I pulled out an previous, dog-eared Louise L’Amour. I fell asleep to the sound of distant gunshots and racing hooves.
