IMG_20161226_162629.jpgAnd Delhi gets its First dedicated fries place…

I am sure all of us have seen numerous fry places from our travels around the world and now a group young Delhites have brought those delicious fries to the town.

Set right across a beautiful tree and a huge open space, this place is a welcome break from the bustling Delhi crowd and that too right in the middle of the city.

Offering a range of crispy fries topped with a choice of veggies and chicken options, the team helps you select the right one as per your flavor pallet. Served with a range of cheesy and sweet and spicy dips, you can always mix and match.

The service is prompt, staff friendly and ambience lovely. I am sure its gonna be a great hangout zone in the coming days for the young and mighty of Delhi 🙂

PS. Do try out the lip smacking Hot Chocolate on offer .. A must try..

Sunny Sunday Afternoon with Lights Camera Action, Rajouri Garden

On a sunny Sunday afternoon , the best place to be in Delhi is a beautiful rooftop . On a similar Sunday, i tried out the much famous Rajouri Garden now known for its buzzing restaurants. Landed up at LCA, with a very interesting bollywood theme.

They have a indoor as well as outdoor sitting spaces and we chose to be on the rooftop. It was just me and my daughter so we ordered a Penne pasta and a chicken pizza. Both of the dishes were well cooked and full of flavors. Loaded with cheese and lip smacking chicken chunks.. I loved the pizza more..

The staff was very courteous to get a warm drink for us as my daughter had a little cold going. It was a really nice gesture.

The place is a must visit for both a casual drink or a satiate your hunger.

Prankster, The F&B Campus, Gurgaon

After a long time I came across a beautiful concept restaurant which has given immense attention to its ambience. Apart from the decor it served impeccable and delicious dishes which remained true to its flavors. All this was topped with a heart warming hospitality and some really fun elements incorporated in every aspect of the restaurant and call themselves PRANKSTER the F&B Campus.

Located in the always buzzing and ever growing Sector 29 market of Gurgaon, the place is spread over more than 10,000 sq feet.. yes its huge.. may be even more behind the walls…. And is divided into different sections resembling a campus – Library, Chemistry Lab, Classroom, hostel rooms and what not. The entire concept it based upon the premise of bringing back your old memories and nostalgia ( I almost got one while sitting on the stairs which felt like my college basket ball court and ties with hidden booze compartment .. lol.. I wish I had one in my college days).

Now lets talk about the Food. Every dish tried to retain a flavor from the past and present itself with a modern take on it. And it was done impeccably.

The delicious Fattir Pizzas with flaky rims were spot on. The melting cheese and the delicious chunks of meat were to die for.

Bombay tawa pulao croquettes were a really interesting dish but I got highly impressed with Pav Bhaji Burgers. The bhaji was compressed into a patty and served with a delicious masala.

I was told that potatoes used in there honey chilly potato were organically grown and thus giving it a very smooth texture and rich flavors.

As usual, I asked the bartender to give me the signature drinks and he belted out a very nice Prankster Punch , a well balance vodka based cocktail.

A great place to explore something new, connect with some old memories, be with some friends or hangout with your family. This place has something or other for everyone and for every occasion.

Drama, Rajouri Garden, Delhi

After so many years of being a regular at the ever growing West Delhi food scene, you really don’t expect something to really stand out … so what do you …. You stand on your head .. .:)

The latest addition is DRAMA the upside down bar and restaurant. The place with send you in a tizzy with the every element of its décor being done, as the name suggests, upside down manner. The inverted lamps, the hanging books, or the huge replica of a Formula 1 race car. (They even have a couple of arcade games in a corner which just might bring back your childhood )

The place is huge, spread over two floors and a beautiful rooftop. The smoothness of the service staff and the execution of the place tells you that the people behind it have put in a lot of thought to all the aspects.

I asked the bartender to give me one of his signature drink and he whipped up a Imly syrup infused Vodka cocktail Chatpati Chameli. A well balance, interesting drink.

We ordered a CHIN CHIN Chicken, a chilly chicken dish with a lot of chillies on the side and a PINJRA MURG, a beautifully presented, juicy, well cooked, tandoori chicken. I was expecting an overdose of spices being in West Delhi, though to my surprise it was very subtly marinated bringing out the real flavors of a high quality chicken.

An interesting dish called WHATSAPP KEBAB, a spinach roll filled with smooth, molten cheese was a very satiating dish. DO TRY it if you are a cheese lover.

It was nice to see that some one is giving as much attention to its food as they give to the ambience of a restaurant. My hunch is that everyone whose gonna visit them, gonna end up loving the uniqueness DRAMA offers.

Chai Shots, Jasola, Delhi

A very quaint little Shop which serves very flavorful and delicious quick bites with hot beverages. It sits inside the Dlf tower A in Jasola district Centre.

Tried the simple earthly bun maska, a peri peri Maggi and spicy chholey with buttery kulchas. Everything is super fresh. The staff is very helpful and makes the dishes very passionately.

It’s super light on pocket and a great solution for that evening hunger pang.

The Yard, Green Park, Delhi

Independence day eve and we landed at The yard. Conveniently located in green Park with a valet service, I ll recommend you to take the stairs. It ll remind you of a hill station cottage.

Our huge gang ordered a lot of stuff though the mutton keema pav became by favourite with a perfectly spiced, lightly gravied keema settled between a piece of fresh paav.

Really liked the ginger chicken. Soft juicy and full of flavors. The food was good. Service was swift. Over all a good experience

Bunta Bar, Cannaught Place, Delhi

A group of friends recently planned a get together at the newly opened bunta bar in CP. It’s located on Jan path and the parking is easily available unlike the other restaurants in cp.

Bunta and nimbu lemon really rings a bell for our generation whose staple beverage was this drink when we were growing up and being true to that a lot of interesting cocktails were served in the same bunta bottles. Kala khatta and aam Panna mixed with some heady booze were my favorite.

In starters, I loved the delicate balance of spice and sweetness of jaggery chicken wings and the beetroot balls. Amazing flavors.

The mutton curry took my heart away in the mains. The flavors were hearty, tangy and bang on. The mutton was juicy and perfectly cooked. It came with a Tawa paratha, the kind your mom would have cooked for you. Do try it with there delectable daal makhni. Lovely.

Ended my meal with a very rich parsi kulfi topped with pomegranate seeds. A beautiful looking and great tasting dish.

The place is nicely decorated and very open. A good place for a formal together or a weekend getaway. A must try.
