The Grand Venice mall is an amazing shopping destination in Greater Noida. It surprised us in many ways. For starters they have fantastic dining facilities at Terrazzo – Food Court. Replete with a host of food options and cuisines, this could be a sole reason to visit the place. It also boasts of the largest Masti Zone in Delhi NCR. Then there is more that we discovered here.
It took some time for Bengali food to come out of the home kitchens to commercial spaces. There is no looking back since then and we find people from all over the country upbeat about trying out new Bengali dishes. Ki Hangla in Gurugram does just that. It has a long menu comprising popular as well as lesser known dishes of Bengali / Bangladeshi cuisines. We went the full hog during a recent dinner with Ki Hangla fare.
Crowne Plaza at Okhla has a multi cuisine restaurant Edesia. We recently visited this restaurant to try out their Awadh food festival. The wide buffet had a selection of Awadhi dishes. Additionally there were continental, salads, dessert and sushi counters.
Pizzas are not the healthiest food for the body. However, when it comes to nourishing the soul, they have little competition. To satiate the soul hunger of the foodies in Delhi, a host of pizza places have sprouted all over NCR. We were craving for authentic US style pizza one evening and spotted Sbarro at Connaught Place. The next one half and a hours here were sheer heaven…
Gurgaon’s Sector 29 market is ever expanding in terms of eating / drinking options. The more the merrier we say. The flip side is one is really undecided about the right place to patronize in this area. Sense of Spirits is a relatively new place here and we dropped in on a sultry Saturday afternoon to feed our hunger and quench our thirst.
North campus is perhaps as popular as a food hub as a hub of education. To cater to the insatiable hunger/curiosity of students, this area has attracted food business over times. One such place that we used to frequent in our college days is Bille di hatti. We recently revisited this gastronomical experience.
Foodport in Gurgaon delivers food on order. Given the forever busy schedules of Gurgaonites, who are always looking for life-hack tricks, food delivery services are much sought after here. We as consumers keep looking for delivery options that provide light and healthy food which can be had on a daily basis. We recently tried Foodport and were most impressed by their punctuality.
We recently dined at immensely popular Farzi Cafe’s CP outlet. We tried quite a few things and noticed that the focus is mainly on presentation and gimmick rather than the taste. We are all for plating and the drama but in Farzi’s case it was an overkill. At the end of the day the proof is in the taste. We felt their dishes had a lot of oomph but not enough substance. Read on to know why do we think so…
The dining sector is expanding like wild fire in Gurgaon. We recently lunched at Ancient Barbeque near South City II, Gurgaon and went for the set menu – unlimited starters, Indian buffet main course and desserts. The Kebabs – Biryani – Sewaiayin were totally worth the drive.
People in Delhi NCR like their heavy carbs that start with P – Parathas, Pooris and Pizzas. Consequently more and more pizza places are opening up with the intent to live up to the local palette. Crusty Pizza has come up with some such Indianised pizzas that may or may not work depending on which side of Puritanism you are.
