Café Lota is an open air restaurant right in the middle of the ethnic brick and mud Crafts Museum. The menu cleverly fits in with the theme of its surroundings, encompassing dishes both popular as well as obscure from around the country, albeit with a modern touch. Sabudana popcorn with thecha dip would be found in a Maharashtrian home, as would the Uttarakhand set meal. What makes Café Lota stand out is its regional food in a non-ethnic setting, off-beat location in the heart of Central Delhi and the cornucopia of crafts literally at your elbow.
