A zomato meetup invite for Pakistani food festival Daawat-e-Maghrib at Singh Saheb, Hotel Eros gave us an opportunity to taste authentic cuisine from Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Lahore and Multan. The cuisine was familiar yet different. Just like how a neighbours food taste different even if they use the same ingredients.
The next Grub Fest would be held during 23-25 October at Ambience lawns, Gurgaon. During the recent curtain raiser, we are told that the focus would be on food from various states of India. Additionally they have a variety of entertainment programmes lined up for the visitors.
Smoothie factory’s outlet at Cottage Emporium, Janpath looks very promising but disappoints with their overpriced food and bad service. Though its a good option for people looking for health food like grilled sandwiches, salads and fresh fruit smoothies, it can’t be visited frequently given the food prices. Moreover the seating space is very limited.
Yes Minister is a sports bar in Essex Farms (off IIT Flyover). They have amongst others snooker, ice hockey and about four bowling alleys. The food and drinks require some improvement. However the place is spacious and given the convenient location (bang opposite Hauz Khas Metro Station), this is a fun-do any weekend.
The Burger Club is a fast food joint not far from Rajouri Garden Metro Station. The burgers that they serve are tasty and, though the recipe is from New Zealand, have a mild Indian twist. This place is a must try for burger buffs. In fact, we had Banoffee pie for desert and fell in love with that as well.
Sakae Sushi at Ambiance Mall, Vasant Kunj serves Sushis and many other Japanese starters, main course, drinks and dessert. If you are hunting for Japanese restaurants in NCR, this is a decent choice for its variety, peaceful ambiance and decent service.
Zanotta at The Leela Ambience – an Italian restaurant that serves innovative Italian food. If you want to explore this cuisine beyond pizza / pasta you should try this place as an occasional indulgence.
