PCO, D block market, Vasant Vihar

This place has been enticing the European food lovers for the past five years in the sophisticated circles of south Delhi and we feel slightly dejected to not know of such an exquisite place. The intricate interiors and the classic Spanish and French music playing in the background remind you of those Victorian movies set in the 1920’s.

Chef Bhagiratha, the executive chef of this restaurant is an experienced and talented chef and his touch is evident in the dearth and the complexity of the dishes available in the menu. All the ingredients are imported or sourced from quality sellers and the all the sauces are unprocessed. As he says, “We believe in serving the freshest sauces and dips.”

Crispy tobasco zucchini chips with spicy dip: Thick slices of zucchini crumb fried and presented to you with in house tomato sauce – such novelty! The juicy zucchini chip blended so well with the crisp exterior and add to it the tangy and spicy sauce – short of words we are!

Southern fried mushrooms with chilli garlic mayo: Half portion of a mushroom crumb fried with a lovely crisp perfection with least brittleness and topped with a warm dip of white and yellow cheddar cheese, jalapenos and chilli flakes. The mushroom was surprisingly mellow and the tangy and creamy sauce blew away a portion of our minds.

Bacon wrapped chicken sausages with mustard mayo: One of the finest sausages which retained their firmness yet were tender and not chewy. The bacon – perfection is the word. It was not too chewy and did not choke your food pipe like the ones you encounter these days. The smoked crunch on the latter was the extra love.

Tempura shrimp wasabi mayo: How come Chef Bhagirath is able to conjure such a thin, seamless crispy fired layer over his appetizers? This one was no different with the no brittleness and well cooked shrimps which weren’t stinking at all.

Ratatouille Nicoise with saffron pilaf: The best one I have had till date. Smoked and grilled slices of aubergine, bell peppers, tomatoes and zucchini topped with a freshly prepared thick pesto sauce and cheddar shavings on a bed of the ratatouille sauce served with blossoming long grained aromatic rice. The ratatouille sauce is again freshly prepared and slight sweet and slightly tangy.

Spinach and Ricotta ravioli in rose sauce: Melt in the mouth ravioli filled with a generous amount of finely chopped spinach and ricotta and drenched in a lovely rose sauce fashioned from red sauce mixed with butter and cream. The sauce has an adorable creamy texture but is not too heavy.

Pan roasted tenderloin steak in three peppercorn sauce: The best tenderloin I have had till date: I was actually able to tear away the chewy chunks with a fork and knife. The tenderloin was doused in a thick sweet sauce and you could actually bite peppercorns within those chewy chunks. The smoked vegetables, especially asparagus were done so well that you actually wonder whether they are cooked or not. The flat potato chips were one of the finest and were prepared by pressing the boiled potatoes and frying them.

German pork sausage: I am amazed with the supreme quality of their sausages: firm but not too chewy with the additional finesse of the minced meat. The mashed potatoes had a smooth and silky texture.

Melting chocolate cake with fruit salsa: A thin chocolate shell including the warm melting chocolate which had an excellent runny texture served with chopped apples and pomegranate. Not too heavy on the stomach and the palate.

Uncultured Cafe & Bar, Kailash Colony, New Delhi

Situated in Kailash Colony, this is a fancy restaurant which serves some lip smacking dishes. Uncultured should be your go to place if you love trying on a myriad of cuisines. A great rooftop terrace is just one of the advantages of visiting this place.

I recently got an opportunity to taste some of its items and here are a few of them:

Fish fingers: Served with a dip, these are crunchy and had a subtle taste. RECOMMENDED

IMG_0649-01

Oreo Shake: Yes we all are head-over-heels in love with this one already. Heavenly is just too small a word to describe this. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_0676-01

Chicken pizza: When I order chicken pizza, I expect chicken to be there as well. But you need a magnifying glass to locate the chicken pieces on the pizza as there are hardly any.

IMG_0657-01

Primavera Pizza: Now atleast this pizza was not disappointing. It had a lot of bell peppers, olives, zucchini and a good amount of cheese as well. RECOMMENDED

IMG_0653-01

Chilli Mushroom: Its time to move on from the regular chilli chicken and chilli paneer and try this dish. As I am not a huge fan of mushrooms, it does taste a little bit weird in the starting. But the spiciness and the tanginess of the mushrooms will definitely delight you. Its spiciness hits you and tanginess makes you fall in love with this dish. RECOMMENDED

IMG_0658-01

Grilled Prawn: Ordering this one was a huge mistake as it is high on disappointment. The prawns were bitter and I could not even finish the one I tasted.

Chicken 65 Bruschetta: After a huge disappointment faced from grilled prawns, this was a beautiful respite. It had oodles of cheese covering the soft juicy chicken placed on toasty bread which leaves you wanting for more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_0662-01

Grilled Fish in lemon butter sauce: Served with a dip and side vegetables, the fish was mellow and had a sublte taste. Light on your stomach, it certainly leaves you wanting for more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
