It’s the last days of Ramadan – the month of fasting and feasting for Muslims around the globe. We in Delhi NCR live up to Id-ul -fitr and visit the Jama Masjid area to soak in the festival spirit. There are lots of dining – shopping – dessert options mostly on the fairy lights illuminated and festooned road opposite to Jama Masjid. We tried some new activities during our Ramzan food trail 2016.
Gurgaon’s Sector 29 market is ever expanding in terms of eating / drinking options. The more the merrier we say. The flip side is one is really undecided about the right place to patronize in this area. Sense of Spirits is a relatively new place here and we dropped in on a sultry Saturday afternoon to feed our hunger and quench our thirst.
The summer vacation is still on in Delhi NCR. Disney – Pixar could not have worked out a better timing for releasing Finding Dory. Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane it is a sequel to Finding Nemo. While we shall always turn gooey when thinking about that one, Finding Dory also is all in all an enriching experience.
Ramadan opens up the taste bud for any foodie worth his salt. The Jama Masjid area sees a lotto buzz not only from the Muslim community but Mughlai food lovers from all over the place. While Karim’s at Jama Masjid is perhaps the most popular restaurant, we wanted an alternative. For Ramzan 2016, we dined at Al Jawahar, just ahead of Karim’s.
Bhisham Sahni’s versatile talents have been reflected in various forums. Bhishmotsav, a collection of short plays based on his works was directed by Seema Bhargava Pahwa and recently presented at Epicentre. Amazing stories, stellar cast and seasoned direction led to an impeccable production, a rare treat
Mango Melas have been an annual feature in Delhi NCR since the last few years. It was held at Dilli Haat all these years. This year, it has a more central location – Handloom Haat on Janpath.
It’s a matter of time that Shahpur Jat gets a new identity. Known to be a designer garment centre, this place is emerging as a food hub as well. We have visited a few eateries in this area in the recent past and have been most impressed. Last week we tried the food delivery service Boom Foods that operates out of Shahpur Jat and have one more from this area in our kitty.
