Chinese food is one of the first eating out options that Indians adopted and moulded according to their taste buds. Its popularity ensures that it finds a place in the menus of 5 star hotels to the roadside vans. China Garden is a Chinese restaurant in Delhi with heritage. Given its popularity we decided to dine here recently.
Ramadan opens up the taste bud for any foodie worth his salt. The Jama Masjid area sees a lotto buzz not only from the Muslim community but Mughlai food lovers from all over the place. While Karim’s at Jama Masjid is perhaps the most popular restaurant, we wanted an alternative. For Ramzan 2016, we dined at Al Jawahar, just ahead of Karim’s.
It’s a matter of time that Shahpur Jat gets a new identity. Known to be a designer garment centre, this place is emerging as a food hub as well. We have visited a few eateries in this area in the recent past and have been most impressed. Last week we tried the food delivery service Boom Foods that operates out of Shahpur Jat and have one more from this area in our kitty.
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! Thus, when we won this dinner invite at Pizza Express, Vasant Kunj for their Hawaiian Summer menu, we attended.
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.
