The most recent addition to Cologne’s Indian restaurant scene has just opened between Rudolfplatz and Friesenplatz. The Eatdoori chain follows a gorgeous modern approach, and its Cologne outlet is airy and spacious with lots of urban design elements. Compared with its more typical peers, Eatdoori’s menu is on the shorter side, but in turn is composed almost exclusively of exciting Indian street food options, with a few traditional dishes thrown in for good measure. When you go, make sure you’ve fasted a bit in advance so you can choose from as many delicious dishes as possible. Maybe papri chaat and chickpea salad for starters, followed by dal makhani and 24-hour marinated grilled paneer? And why not add a few ginger-and-lime prawns and a mini naanwich (think naan sandwich)? The cocktail list is just as extensive: lots of bartender classics with an Indian twist. Eatdoori, like the Masala Empire, is impressive proof that modern Indian restaurants really do work, and that the decision to dispense with tradition and folklore does not necessarily mean you’re ot getting top-notch Indian food. On the contrary: Eatdoori is a wonderful urban space offering very respectable quality on the plate.
