From drinks and food platters dedicated to the common man to discounts for guests flaunting the jhaadu-print and a special diabetics' menu keeping Aam Aadmi Party leader (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal's medical condition in mind, restaurants in the Capital have gone all out to ­celebrate AAP's landslide victory in the Delhi Assembly ­election.
Schengen in Malcha Marg, The Liquor Warehouse in Gurgaon, Kinbuck 2 in Connaught Place, Fork You and Storm Bar & Grill have all introduced ­special dishes with the prefix, AAP.

From Aap Chicken Chettinad and Political bhel to Kejri curry, it's AAP on the plate all the way.
"It's our way of celebrating AAP's comprehensive victory," says ­restaurateur Rohit Sharma. Vault Cafe in central Delhi, on the other hand, is ­offering the common man's pet picks.
On the menu are Aap-ki-dal makhani, Aap-ka-pasta and Aap-ke-noodles. In fact, keeping in mind the chief minister-in-waiting's fondness for Chinese food, Lockup - The Restaurant has introduced a buy-one-get-one offer on Chinese cuisine. At World Pizza Journey in Hauz Khas village, customised pizzas are being offered.
"It's an 'aap' pizza so it will have 'aap ki choice' ki ­toppings," says owner Aby Mathur.
Many eateries including Cafe Delhi Heights, Terminus 1 and Townhouse are also giving discounts on food bills to customers sporting AAP merchandise - Tees, caps et al.
"We are offering upto 15% discount on the bill to customers wearing T-shirts with AAP one-liners, Mr Kejriwal's photo or broom symbols. At Townhouse in CP and Flying Saucer in Nehru Place, we are also serving a free dessert called Aap ki Dilli," says ­restaurant chain owner Priyank Sukhija.
Sufiaana in Rajouri Garden also has a similar offer on free cakes. Shraman at The Ashok steals the show with a special diabetic menu.
"Kejriwal-ji is diabetic, so we created a new menu as per his health requirements," says chef Deepak of the restaurant.
