Big Jaws, Greater Kailash 1, New Delhi

Delivery: On time
Packaging: Sealed and hygienic

Big Jaws special pizza: Thin crust at it’s best! Even though the menu mentions “spicy chicken” and “hot marinara sauce” , the hotness and spiciness do not overpower. The fresh vegetables – olives, jalapenos, mushrooms, chunky chicken and fried basil leaves on a thin well baked base present a perfect pizza. Highly recommended.

Spaghetti-alla-carbonara – The spaghetti did not get stuck in the white sauce and that is where this dish gets full marks. The white sauce has the right quantity of cheese and cream and therefore the texture is neither too runny nor too sticky. The bacon is well sauteed though I wish it could have been slightly crispier. The pasta is slurpy to the point of being decadent and hence this dish is highly recommended.

Mr. Magix, Greater Kailash 1

Delivery: An hour late
Packaging: Good

Spaghetti in meatballs: Average taste with the marinara sauce overpowering. The spaghetti strands are not slurpy at all and these occassional bite of chopped garlic is the only respite.

Hogwarts Hut 10″: This is a wonderfully prepared vegetables thin crust pizza which you will enjoy with deep relish. The amount of cheese is optimal, the vegetables perfectly grilled and the crust of perfect texture.

Trio cheese garlic bread: The texture of the breads was crumbly instead of smooth and the cheese tasted stale.

Hauz Khas Social, Hauz khas Village, New Delhi

So when Social Offline, one of my favourite restaurant chains in the Delhi NCR launches their special Summer Menu, could I keep my hands and palate from relishing their well thought dishes? An absolute no!

Unkiller/ Abra Kebab-ra veg kebab platter: Highly unlikely for me to go for a full blown vegetarian kebab platter? Yes, well, I have outgrown my choice for the meaty dishes and a once in a while platter “in which no animals were harmed” does sound appetizing. The mellow paneer tikka drenched in pickle like spices did tantalize the taste buds but could have been grilled more. The Achaari soya chaap was amazingly grilled and had a thin crust with a tender chewy interior. The tandoori momos were good and had a hearty filling of finely chopped mushrooms, beans, onion, broccoli, carrots, cabbage and baby corn. The spicy Malai mushroom was grilled well and was melt in the mouth with the lovely cream adorning it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Celebrity Bhelpuri: Let us move over from our usual bhelpuri prepared with puffed rice to the one fashioned with puffed Amaranth, quinoa crisps, flaxseeds, granola, pomegranate, peanuts, freshly cut kiwi and oranges. The crunchy texture of the ensemble coupled with the sweet and peppery flavours bursting on your palate does transform you into heaven. Moreover, it is healthy too! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180519_140636-01

Shiitake and mushroom pizza: Special mention – The chef specifically doubled the quantity of mushrooms when he came to know about my love for the chewy fungi. The pizza was what an ideal pizza should be like – thin crust with no charred remains, optimum quantity of cheese that stretches but is not overwhelming, flavourful tomato sauce topping and well grilled shiitake and button mushrooms. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180519_144021-01

Anda mutton seekh paratha: Why did they serve me this? Because I can not get over the food coma experienced while gorging on this lovely dish. The firm yet tender and heavily spiced mutton seekh kebabs were paired with the bland and flaky Malabar paratha which had a thim omelette on the other side. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180519_143938-01

Summer fruit pavlova: Finally someone here knows how to dish out a pavlova which does not taste like our humble “batasha”! The crispy and airy pavlova was baked to perfection with slightly caramelized edges and topped with fresh cream and fruits – a layered dessert exuding the summery charm. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180519_151847-01

Peanut butter fondant with vanilla ice cream: Well, well, yours truly finished this combination on her own with no qualms at all! How could I stop myself from feasting upon the moderately sweet, warm, melt in the mouth chocolate fondant topped with melted peanut butter and peanuts? And when I got slightly exhausted from the warm sweet and salty ensemble, I gorged upon the cool and creamy vanilla ice cream. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Vegetable toasties: Crunchy toasties slathered with a very fine layer of cheese and chopped vegetables does entice you. The extra salt mars the dish, however. RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180504_202403-01

Cheese baked potatoes: A very simple dish fashioned into a delight! The warm running cheese baked in the mushy potatoes with skins does capture your heart. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Alfredo pasta: The penne was cooked al dante but the quantity of white sauce could have been better – it was sticking to the pasta and not in a very good way. RECOMMENDED.

DSC_0982-01

Makhani chicken pizza: Another pizza on a wheat base and the effort is highly appreciated. The chicken chunks are flavourful but pizza base could have had a more appetizing and creamier version of the sauce.

Delivery: On time

Packaging: Perfect

Grilled chicken in pesto sandwich: The chicken mince was fine but the characteristic flavour of pesto sauce was missing here.

IMG_20180418_203509-01

Chicken sausage and mushroom bowl: The sausages, the mushrooms and the vegetables were fresh and juicy but the same can not be said about the brown rice which was dry.

IMG_20180418_203317-01

Garden fresh veggie pizza: The vegetables are freshly sourced and taste crunchy but the base had a burnt flavour and texture and was way too crisp. If the amount of sauce is increased, then the extra crispiness of the base can be avoided.

IMG_20180418_203807-01

Barbeque chicken pizza: Again, the topping was first class but only if the pizza base could have been better.

IMG_20180418_204413-01

The excessive use of chilli flakes can be avoided because it mars the overall flavour of the item.

We appreciate the efforts of restaurant in exploring the cooking techniques for healthy dishes but at the same time quality and taste are a bit difficult to maintain. All the best to them and hope that they will succeed.

The Turkey Project, Defence Colony, New Delhi

The food industry continues to develop at an exponential pace and this has resulted in a mushrooming of outlets which fail to deliver on quality. So when you visit a small café specialising in Italian cuisine which surprises you with their unusual menu and mouth watering dishes, you know that you will have a good time.
Most of their dishes have the prefix “turkey” associated with them and from what I understood, this word signifies bacon and their experimentation with it. I really hope I am correct.
Frickens: The kind of crumb fried chicken available these days does not even remotely impress me. So when I binged upon this juicy boneless chicken strip crumb fried and adorned in tangy sweet sauce and mayonnaise, my taste buds went in a food coma. The best part is that the crispy exterior does not separate even after being kept for 15-20 minutes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180317_134721-01
Fries: I am really not a big fan of fries even if they have donned a swanky appearance these days – curlies, crinkles, wedges and like. The ones served here were curly fries and drenched in a heart warming mixture of melted cheddar cheese, chopped onions and jalapenos. The quality of cheese is so good that it does not solidify even after an hour of being kept in open. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180317_134925-01
Santorini pizza: Such colours! The vegetables – bell peppers and olives are not over grilled and present a crunchy texture associated with freshness. The cheese is not overwhelming and spreads very beautifully on the thin crust. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180317_140855-01
Turkey pizza: Finally my dream has turned into a reality! A pizza exclusively dedicated to bacon – ohhh man, such heaven! The quality of bacon is again top notch with the lovely crunch and firmness intact. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A truffled affair: My love for spaghetti reached new heights when I relished the slurpy spaghetti served here. Served with chewy mushrooms and sautéed in truffle oil, mushroom pate and garlic cream, this was a gourmand’s delight. The characteristic subtle bitterness of the mushroom paste adds to the maelstrom of flavours to this dish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180317_141118-01
Cheesecake tart: If you are slightly hungry, this cheesecake is enough to fill your belly. Dense and smooth cheese cake over a firm tart base and topped with fresh mint leaves and thick nutella syrup will definitely leave you in splits.

Like Italy, GK-1, New Delhi

With time and tasting, I have developed a taste for authentic Italian and it is always a pleasant surprise to find a restaurant serving good dishes with the ingredients sourced from Italy. Like Italy, situated in the hustle bustle of the M block market, GK-1 is one of the those places which offer peace along with a host of lip smacking Italian dishes.

Grilled sausage salad: A raw salad with crunchy and smoked vegetables and perfectly grilled sausages can be your perfect brunch partner. The sausages are firm but tender, the smoked red bell pepper juicy and the spinach leaves fresh.  Just douse this in the tangy mustard dip served and you are in for a roll! RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20171029_132527-01

Amatriciano con Bacon: The slightly thick slurpy spaghetti prepared in a creamy and flavourful red sauce with sautéed bacon strips – please can I have this dish again? I am not a fan of red sauce but this one had me binge eat a whole portion. A balanced sauce does the trick I guess so I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this.

IMG_20171029_132624-01

Involtini di pollo with backed potatoes – chicken breast and ham roll: A perfect dish for a main course and a heavy one for that matter. The thick ham rolls are filled with a creamy mixture of spinach with the crunchy potato wedges completing the picture. RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20171029_133020-01

Pancetta e scamorza pizza: The warm melting scamorza cheese flowing over a medium crust pizza adorned with a fresh tomato sauce topping and bacon strips is a dream come true for any non vegetarian pizza lover. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

IMG_20171029_141303-01

Veneta pizza: The fresh chicken sausage, mushrooms and onions topped with mozzarella and parmesan are good enough but the tomato sauce topping could have been more flavourful.

Capsicum Pizza: You will not want to eat this because it is so colourful and inviting! The reds, the yellows and the greens perfectly blend on the whites of the mozzarella cheese and their slightly smoky texture compliments the gooey cheese. RECOMMENDED

IMG_20171029_141918-02

Grigliata Pizza: The smoked vegetables: mushrooms, zucchini and onions are flavourful but charred and you get a “burnt” kind of flavour here. This could have been more flavourful.

Panna Cotta: The set and smooth cream with subtle sweetness topped with the crunchy biscuit crumble – perfect climax. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
