The tea boom seems to have just started. Delhi NCR is now witnessing the sprouting of cafes that have tea as their mainstay. Its not only tea as a beverage, but tea is used as ingredients in the food that they serve. Tea Trails is the new kid on the block, or accurately speaking, Opposite N block Outer Circle, Connaught Place.
There are vegetarians and vegetarians. While eating out, some don’t mind eating vegetarian food at a place that also serves non-veg. For some, this is not acceptable and they adhere to vegetarian food places. Others are for Jain food and shun places that add onion or garlic. There is no dearth of options for any of the above preferences in Delhi NCR. To celebrate Mother’s Day, we lunched at Bell Pepperz, a vegetarian restaurant of the liberated variety.
Pizza is one of the most popular fast foods among kids and adults. Very many standalone pizza joints dot malls and shopping arcades all over NCR. We totally dig pizza, health is for another day!

Oh My God in Connaught Place is one among many restaurants in this area. Given that every other restaurant here is non distinguishable from each other, it is tough competition for them. They should be at the top of their act to make a name for themselves. We recently visited Oh My God to experience this place.
Thai cuisine is a combination of flavours, colors, aroma and texture. While Thai food can get spicy, the heat is very different and milder than Indian food. Given the abundance of raw / fresh ingredients in this cuisine, Thai food is easy to digest and is very suitable for the ongoing crazy days of super high temperature. J W Marriot at Aerocity near the airport is holding a Bangkok Food Festival. We visited this event last weekend to taste some Thai food.
Lutyen’s Cocktail House is located at the rather isolated Janpath crossing near CP. With most areas having a different café at adjacent doors, CP – Hauz Khas Village – Rajouri Garden – Sector 29 Gurgaon – there is a lotto competition and chaos. At Lutyen’s Cocktail House, the surrounding area is peaceful and given that this is the only resto-bar here, there is not a lot of commotion. Works well on any evening.
West Delhi is buzzing with new restaurants or pubs opening almost every week. We recently attended the launch party of Habibi, a Mediterranean -Lebanese- Moroccan restaurant in Rajouri Garden. Along with food and drinks, we gotta see some Belly Dance too!
After trying out several fancy, stylish, theme based, awarded and hyped food joints in Delhi, when we crave for just simple, delicious and no fuss non veg food, we go to The Tandoor. To find out, what makes this place a perfect place to sit and have a peaceful non vegetarian dinner, read on…
We did not think much about wine and chocolate being complementary items. But Art Chocolat | Academy of Chocolate Arts had invited us to a session of tasting and pairing wine and chocolate. This was a new thing that we did and it sure was fun!
