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.
Tea is catching up as the go-to drink for many in Delhi what with its health benefits and reasonable prices,. Consequently tea cafes in Delhi are seeing a steadily increasing flow of patrons. T’Pot Café in Malviya Nagar is a tea joint that is about two years old. They have an impressive range of tea starting from our very own masala chai to the exotic white tea – oolong tea et al. They also serve a variety of tea snacks, (vegetarian well as non-vegetarian) meal items and coffee. Apart from the brew, one may buy tea leaves from their outlet or online store.
Hinglish in Pacific Mall, near Subhash Nagar Metro Station is a restaurant that serves a combo of Indian and continental cuisine. We were great fans of this place but our last visit has disappointed us big time. Drinks – food – service – ambiance – attitude – every element was a let down. Extremely saddening.
Mediumwelldone is a resto bar in Gurgaon. Claiming to serve authentic American steak, they disappointed us with their overdose of spices in every dish (soup-starter-main course) that we ordered. The décor is nice and the place is quiet. A mediocre experience all in all.
The foodies of Delhi (or outside) routinely flock Old Delhi (Jama Masjid area) during Ramzan to taste Mughlai food. Karim’s perhaps is the most popular joint in this league. However, there are a plethora of other eateries. In addition to Mughlai food, a variety of local breads with cream, jelly and coconut stuffing; sewaiyan; desserts such as Shahi Tukra and Anarasa and interestingly brewed milk tea with cream topping are must trys.
Nando’s is a causal dining international restaurant chain known for their chicken preparations in peri peri sauce. They have a few restaurants in NCR and we tried the Cyberhub outlet. Thoroughly satisfied, we strongly recommend this place to non-vegetarians who are willing to explore beyond butter chicken.
Sharbat Mela is a cool and very apt festival in Scorching Delhi Summer. A lot of small and big scale manufacturers of Sharbat, Kulfi and Shake mixes exhibit here and provide samplers for people to taste and buy. It’s a cool and fun way to beat the heat.
Viva-O-Viva at Goa Niwas (Chanakyapuri) offers a predominantly non-vegetarian Goan menu. It you are a seafood buff this place is worth a shot for its simplicity and value for money.
