Dimcha, the dimsum and chai restaurant has an outlet at Epicuria and we were invited for a review session. Ordinarily Asian food is lighter than Indian fare. Given the warm and stuffy weather that we were facing in Delhi NCR, light food was the way to go and we gladly accepted the invite.
Its holiday season world over and Pizza Express has introduced some new dishes in tune with the festive season. We were invited to sample the new dishes and we visited their outlet at Epicuria, Nehru Place. They also have a curate menu at a limited price offer for a festive meal.
Delhi is perhaps the food hub in North India. Being through and through Delhites, we still crave for North Indian food of-and-on. Naturally, there is no dearth of North Indian food places here.

Outside Paschim Bengal, one of the most recommended Bengali fine dine restaurants is Oh Calcutta. But this place couldn’t live up to our expectations. The Oh Calcutta Biriyani was hardly Calcutta.
