In today’s day and age of food drama – smoke – foam – molecules etc. that are fed in the name of food, it is good to find a place in the everchanging Delhi NCR that has stood the test of time. Triveni Terrace Café has been in business since 70 – 80 years and looks like a haven in the heart of Delhi. We had some friends over and came here for an early meal. Old style as this place may be, please read our account.
Rajouri Garden evolved as a hotspot of eateries in West Delhi and we were all so excited. Every other day we hear of some new restaurant here. Given this explosion, the parking is haywire and the area is quite a clutter that we choose to miss. However we came across The Junkyard Café here on a very hot afternoon last Saturday. Given the harsh weather, the place wasn’t as crowded and the parking scene not too bad and we stopped here for lunch.
We don’t get to hear a lot of choir music concerts in Delhi NCR. The Capital City Minstrels as a chamber choir are a forerunner of popularizing this genre of music up north. They held a series of concerts across Delhi NCR and we watched one of them at India Habitat Centre.
The going is getting better for tea aficionados in Delhi NCR. Their options are increasing every other day. We quite accidentally came across Tea Halt at a somewhat distant mall, Good Earth City Center in Gurgaon. We decided to try out this place for a pre-lunch tea break!
Stand-up comedy as a form of entertainment is new for us. However it has picked up momentum in Delhi NCR. Consequently many stand up shows are held in clubs, pubs and auditoriums over the week as well as weekend. We recently watched the Ghanta Awards Nomination, comedy act by Radhika Vaz, Neeti Palta, Sanjay Rajoura and Manan Desai. Here is our splitting account.
There are vegetarians and vegetarians. While eating out, some don’t mind eating vegetarian food at a place that also serves non-veg. For some, this is not acceptable and they adhere to vegetarian food places. Others are for Jain food and shun places that add onion or garlic. There is no dearth of options for any of the above preferences in Delhi NCR. To celebrate Mother’s Day, we lunched at Bell Pepperz, a vegetarian restaurant of the liberated variety.
Tom Alter is a regular feature in the Delhi theatre circuit. The flip side is he is part of lot of productions that solely depend on his popularity to pull off the act. They are negligent about the script and other aspects of productions. We are therefore a little wary when we watch a play that has Alter. Nonetheless, the play “Delhi-Ciously Chekov” was recently held at Epicentre, Gurgaon and we went to watch this a Sunday evening.
