The huge New Delhi Palate Fest was organised at PSOI Cub, Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri. The event comprised a huge agglomeration of stalls by almost all big names in the hospitality industry. The visitors were terribly spoilt for choice in terms of quality and variety of food. The program was peppered with sessions by celebrity chefs and music by live bands. The turnout was stupendous and the Traffic Police had a trying time in handling the cars in that area. The Festival establishes that Delhi is still unarguably the food capital of the country.
B Bar at Select Citywalk mall, Saket, serve Asian food from Japanese, Chinese, Malay to Thai cuisine. It is an impressive looking place and the food is nice. We were particularly impressed with Maki Rolls and prawn dimsums. It may be a little over-the-top for regular meals but is apt for celebrations.
Café Lota serves a variety of common as well as off beat dishes from various states in India. They cover the whole gamut of starters – main course – dessert. The cooking style is creative and everything that we had tasted awesome. The serving size is however small and parking can be an absolute torture over weekends / peak dining hours.
Imperfecto is a resto bar at DLF Cyberhub and Hauz Khas Village. The Hauz Khas outlet is right at the entry (literally). The cuisine is a mix of Mediterranean, Italian and Continental. The food is decent but nothing to go gung ho about. However, the staff is nice and we had pleasant experience always.
bohème is a continental resto-bar at D Blk Market, Vasant Vihar. They serve simple but interesting food and the décor is soothing. However, it is high up on the second floor without a lift. So for the steep three storey climb – fitness is a prerequisite!
Indian Grill Room on Golf Course Road, Gurgaon offers Indian / Mughlai buffet style dinners of unlimited helpings of kebabs – main course – dessert pattern. They serve al carte as well and the fare is very decent. But what we love about the place is the outdoor seating. The terrace has been transformed into a dream setting with pools, plants, sprinklers and ground lighting. Far above the hustle bustle of Gurgaon, we recommend this place for a romance plus food combo experience.
