Ever Heard Of A Place Where Your Dessert Is Served With An Irish  Dance? This Pub In Delhi is The Perfect Destination

Delhi never runs out of options when it comes to exploring great food in terms of innovation or tastes. However in the marathon of upcoming eateries, standing out is essential and hence The Delhi restaurants never stop experimenting their hands on cuisines and their presentations. A few days I happened to visit The Irish House, one of the popular restropubs in Delhi and without an iota of doubt, I can say that my experience turned out to be extremely satisfying. I am not a frequent visitor of restropubs since I believe most of their experimentation involves in the section of beverages, to be more precise, cocktails.

DSC_0178 - Copy

Punctual Services

One of the basic things every foodie expects from a delivery outlet is completely punctual services. On time delivery is something that many delivery outlets fail to offer and here lies the irony that even if the food is good enough, impunctual services are a great turn off. But Grill Kitchen Gourmet would never dissappoint you in this area. Absolutely sharp on time, you don’t need to check your watch repeatedly for getting those lip-smacking delicacies on your plate.

Appetizing Tastes

What You Shouldn’t Miss In Rang De Basanti Urban Dhaba: a Complete Culinary Guide

Rang De Basanti Urban Dhaba Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
Punjabi cuisine has always been my soft corner of taste. The delectable tandooris, the smokey grills, the soft, mouth melting daal makhani are some dishes for which the love never dies.

And especially when you are in the Capital City, the amazing colors of the Punjabi assortments just cannot be missed out. But out of the huge bunch of food outlets that Delhi offers to you for the amazingly delicious Punjabi taste, it is indeed difficult to make the correct pick.  So let us help you a bit by offering you the perfect choice for the Indian cuisine in Delhi.


A few days back I chanced to visit Rang De Basanti, The Urban Dhaba located in Hauz Khas Village and undoubtedly I can claim this outlet to be the paradise for every North Indian foodie. Let me share what’s in store for you at the vibrant, bustling, quirky eatery.


Let’s start the journey with some incredible drinks that this superb eatery has to offer:

Chacch{ To Be More Familiar, Butter Milk}


Though Rang De Basanti has traditional Punjabi dishes, but they decide to offer every dish with a perfect twist and their Chaach is not an exception.


The Tadka Chaach with the fine sprinkling of coriander and cumin tadka proves that even usual butter milk can be given a great innovative taste if mixed with the correctly chosen spices.

The Chaach is also available in flavors of Theekha( a bit chilly and spicy) as well as the plain one.

LASSI


Range De Basanti’s Desi Lassi that comes both in the sweet as well as salty varieties are also enriched in tastes with their rich creamy curd textures, heavy enough to quench your thirst and your hunger to a great extent.

Coming to starters, Rang De Basanti once again maintains its ritual of combining the usual conventional Punjabi delicacies with a punch of innovation and their starter menu establishes so to a great extent.

Naanchos

In Love with Naachos? Rang De Basanti has its exclusive version of Nachos, the “Naancho” with Mutton Keema. If wondering what exactly it is, let me elaborate a more.


These were naans shaped and cut in the form of Nachos, a bit harder in texture than the ordinary naans. Naanchos served with mutton keema as a dip is indeed the Punjabi version of the famous Nachos.

Mahi Ambarrasiya

Being a Bong I am a fish fanatic and this dish from the house of RDB fulfilled my cravings for crispy fish to the core. Crispy, crunchy fish fried and served with an exclusive RDB chutney is a dish you cannot afford to miss.

Tangdi Oye Hoye

A lovely chicken legpiece starter smoked to perfection with amazing spices and served with chutney specialties from Rang De Basanti.

Mains: Authentic Punjabi Delicacies On Your Plates

Soya Rara

Soft soyabean pieces served in the form of minimal gravy, commonly known as champ in a tangy, semi-spicy form.

Bhayankar Kadi Chaawal

If you are taken aback by the name, then let me unfold the history behind its nomenclature. It’s not the typical Delhite Kadi Chaawal, but presented with culinary twists. It comes in the form of deep fried balls which contain rice and is served with the Indian curry “Kadhi”.

Hari Mirch Ki Roti

Whichever curries you may try, the Hari mirch ki roti is a must accompaniment for a twist in the normal breads.

Meat Chawal

In case you are a rice addict like me then meat chawal that is basically a pulao with mutton pieces is worth a try.

Dessert Speciality

To end your lavish meal in the perfect manner, the Bhayankari Meetha Paan, an In-house icecream served with beetle leaf and gulkand is a definite try.

Rang De Basanti’ s “Bhayankar” (Danger) Alert

The Dishes with “Bhayankari” taglines are not to be missed at all. While the term “ Bhayankari” is quite misleading with indication to dangerous, but in Rang De Basanti Urban Dhaba, every dish is Bhayankari considering its killing goodness and finger-licking tastes.


So whenever you visit Rang De Basanti Urban Dhaba, never forget to give a try to the signature “Bhayankari” dishes.

Give Your Tastebuds A Gourmet Experience with Go Gourmet

GoGourmet Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
Eating healthy has become a norm today. Considering the kind of hectic schedules we go through it becomes immensely difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet. Thus the main agenda is to strike a healthy balance between your diets and yet not put a compromise on your lifestyle.  And very few food joints in Delhi can actually live up to this purpose. Fortunately a few days back I came across this amazing food joint Go Gourmet. As the name says it thrives to bring a gourmet touch to your lifestyles.

IMG-20170630-WA0071The best part of Go Gourmet is that it does not allow you to compromise your taste buds or your healthy diet charts and yet provide you finest gourmet tastes.

Let me take you through a quick tour through the delicacies I tried and my take on it:

IMG-20170630-WA0070Thai Chicken Curry Meal in A Bowl

I am a very big fan of Thai chicken gravies and hence I decided to try their one too and I must confess I wasn’t disappointed at all. They have some exotic veggie loaded thai curry that comes in a reasonable price of 269 INR and is accompanied by health-friendly brown rice. The gravy is quite thick and is filled with fresh veggies, thus not cutting you in your diet goals yet giving you the desired tastes.

IMG-20170630-WA0072Mango Sticky Rice

Summers and mangoes are inseparable and hence I decided to get myself a classic Thai dessert, “The Mango Sticky Rice”. This dish is rich in tastes and is actually a simple mango rice pudding with some interesting freshly cut mangoes spread over it. With optimum sweetness and without any added creams or flavors, this dish preserves itself to be a great dessert without increasing your waistlines.

IMG-20170630-WA0074Go Gourmet is also suggested for exotic fresh fruits and a variety of some mind blowing, out of the box salads.

IMG-20170630-WA0073Even their wraps and sandwiches deserve a must try.

So once you are heading towards  Noida or even Connaught Place or Gurgaon, make sure, you give a try to Go Gourmet at least once for a healthy yet gourmet lunch or dining sessions.

The good news is they have almost as many outlets as 6 all over the Capital city and NCR for your healthy gourmet eating sessions.

Curry Company: The Smartest Food Delivery you Must Try Today

Curry Company Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
I am sure that all of you hold a soft corner for curries and spicy gravies. Sometimes the cravings go so crazy that we take it to our hands to try some of the amazing curries. But unfortunately we fail most of the times to bring that similar taste in our curries. So for all the Gurgaon residents, there’s a small piece of good news.


You can now order those delicious, oozing with spices curries right at your home. But what makes it different from other outlets?

Well you can place an order through a smart app for the outlet named Curry Company.

No more hassling calls, no more follow ups, but a simple download from the Playstore lets you fulfill your curry cravings at your home.

When it comes to food, Curry Company does not have a huge host to offer but it surely believes in quality rather than quantity.

Hence all items delivered spoke of signature tastes that would surely make you order the second time.

Dishes Not to miss:

Chicken Chettinad

If you are a die hard fan of spices then this surely must be on your order list.

I have tasted chicken Chettinad a number of times and this dish from Curry Company was loyal enough to reminisce the Chennai flavors which I was a true fan of.

Murgh Gilafi Seekh


This is one of the must try out starters. With their balanced oil, without leaving any greasy impact, there was no compromise on taste. Even kids have these owing to the limited use of spices and oil.

Anjeer Chenna Kofta

Another mesmerizing dish even for a non-veggie like me. Koftas dipped in semi thick pale yellow creamy gravy is majorly sweet in taste and goes hand in hand excellently with steamed rice or hot tawa rotis.
What Makes Me Recommend Curry Company?

🙂 Prompt Delivery within as short as 20-30 mins.

👍 Sticks to its showcase:The best part is whatever picture the menu on the app shows, the food is absolutely in the same form and shape.

🤗Compact and Intact Packaging Kwithout any scope for spill overs.

👍 Besides the food, even the extra salads and coriander chutneys are also awesome.

😊 The best part is the food comes accompanied by accessories like wet flavored wipes that makes it a comprehensive food delivery solution.

A must 5 on 5 for the great service.

Asia Central:Your Hunt For Great Asian Food Finds A Perfect Stop

Asia Central Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
always nurture an attitude to experiment cuisines. And one of my favorite cuisines that I have fallen in love with during this experimentation is definitely the Pan Asian. Being born and brought up in a town of Bengal, we did not have many options to explore in the Asian delicacies. In fact, quite surprisingly people here often confuse the Chinese with Asian delicacies.

However after coming to Delhi and exploring several cuisines and sharpening my food knowledge I have come to a point where I understand the fine differences between Chinese and Asian delicacies. And when it comes to authentic Asian food, I have recently come across this hidden gem in South Delhi.

I had ordered food from there for a special dining with my guests and what came were boxes of unparalleled delectable happiness.

There are a bundle of points to appreciate and I    would like to begin primarily with their

Packaging:

One of the sole parameters that make a parcel or food delivery bring a smile to your face is its great packaging. I must say Asia Central has left no stones unturned to make it a successful, happy delivery. Sealed perfectly and packed in two cardboard boxes, what came to us was sheer happiness.

Food: Tastes That Surprise You in Every Bite

 Banana leaf steamed fish

Some tastes never fail to make you crave for more and the banana leaf steamed fish is definitely one such thing from the house of Asia Central. Soft pieces of fish that comes wrapped in banana leaf just melt into your mouth with their softness.

Pad Thai Chicken Noodles

This was a new found love for me with chicken noodles. The great packaging clubbed with the bits of chicken scattered in the noodles made it a dish that everyone must try.

Kung Pao Chicken and Thai Chicken Curry

Both of the delicacies seemed to be extremely relishing with intact tastes, correct mix of ingredients and the perfect blend of spices. The semi-thick gravies of both make them a perfect combination for any sort of rice or noodles.

A perfect five to Asia Central for such great food at such reasonable prices.

Why You Must Pay A Visit To Nariyal Cafe Today?

Nariyal Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
Delhi has always been the hub for foodies. Whether you are a hard core vegetarian or a typical non-vagan, Delhi will never run out of choices for food. Owing to its cosmopolitan culture, it has been the hotspot of all with an appetite for great cuisine. Among all the eateries that Delhi has, very few come up with innovative cuisines and one such outlet that we chanced to come across the Nariyal Café.

Having stayed in Chennai for sometime, I always had a craving for typical Coastal cuisine. Though Delhi has options for that too, however most of them are extremely overpriced. In this scenario, a savior to all coastal flavor lovers is the Naariyal Café located in Adchini Market.

n1

Nariyal Café that began its journey in Feb 2017 and believe me it shouldn’t be judged by its young age. In fact it truly proves expertise does not always come with age and experience. Within these few months it has conquered the hearts of many foodies with its superb presentation, etting and definitely amazing food.

Things You should Never Miss In Nariyal Café

If you are Moving Into Nariyal Café and you are not tasting Nariyal Paani, then it’s definitely equivalent to a crime. Jokes apart Nariyal Café has some of the best flavored Nariyal Paanis available in mango, coffee, strawberry flavors. Make your pick and have a sip.

n7

The next thing that you should not miss is definitely its soup Malay Laska. Served in coconut shells, this soup has an affinity towards a Thai curry but the punch of South Indian touches along with some crunchy peanuts make it a super innovative and must try dish.

n8

Another must try dish is the Mutton Sukha Spaghetti that is served in awesome dried tender coconut crusts and garnished with some great seasonings. Spaghteei marinated in the thick gravy of mutton sukha in such an amazing presentation will definitely make you crave more.

n9

The Chettinad Dum Biryani is equally good but I am not too an ardent fan of biryani and hence won’t be able to give you an honest feedback about the same.

n6

n10

n13

Lastly the showstoppers stand out to be the Espresso Rasgulla and the Murugan Chocolate Bomb. Considering the kind of dessert fan I am, I would love to go to this place again and again for its amazing desserts. The coffee flavored rasgullas and the mouth melting chocolate bomb are sinful cravings that barely anyone can resist.

n11

With a cozy setting and a hospitable staff, along with reasonable prices, Nariyal Café is one such spot you must visit today.
