Forestta, Sector 54, Golf Course Road, Gurgaon

So finally there is a café in Gurgaon which is located in the premium location of Golf Course Road and which is not a water hole unlike the proliferating restaurants here.
Forestta deserves a special mention for being a place where you can sit quietly with your friends and family, enjoy their collection of best selling books, play snooker or relish Karoake on Thursday nights. It is a no go place for alcohol lovers and kid friendly too.
Wooden interiors and vibrant ambience with a touch of greenery welcome you as you sail aboard this place. The menu is varied and is optimally priced. Here are a few items that I recently binged upon:
Mango Smoothie: Made from real alphonso mangoes with no added flavours, this one is a must try for smoothie lovers.

Veg kebab platter: A well grilled paneer tikka, crispy tandoori broccoli drenched in spices, juicy mushrooms and mellow poatatoes filled with a peppery filling – vegetarians, you have a profound reason to visit this place.

Non veg platter: Fish Tikka which does not disintegrate easily and is soft to the core, mouth gasmic chicken tikka which is extra mellow, firm yet juicy mutton seekh kebab and spicy and tangy tandoori chicken – it is difficult to stop yourselves if you are a hardcore non vegetarian.

Afghani Tandoori momos: As of the usual Tandoori momos were not enough! With a chewy exterior and mushy interiors slathered in a sticky creamy sauce, you are bound to get surprise.

Vegetarian spring rolls: A defined crunch sounds awakens your senses as you bite into this blissful piece of sheer culinary magic.

Me-Bo, MG Road, Gurgaon

In this age of fast paced life, the working class personnel are left with little time to enjoy a full meal, let alone prepare a decent one. It is a different matter altogether if you love cooking, but for those of us not interested in the culinary arts, ordering from a nearby delivery outlet remains the only option. And while availing that option, you can not always get a full meal which spares your belly too.

That is where Me-Bo comes in. When you have a varied range of cuisines to chose from – South Asian, Indian and Italian and these meals come in an air tight bowl, what more could you ask for? And they have healthier options as well – a smoothie bowl – who could have thought of that?

I recently chose to taste the following bowls from their extensive menu:

Bangkok street style chicken with glass noodles: I think I am slowly moving away from the usual noodles that we binge upon towards the lovely, soft and smooth glass noodles. And the ones here were steamed to perfection and served with juicy chicken and crunchy vegetables – bell peppers, purple cabbage, carrots and French beans topped with a coconut based creamy gravy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Balsamic Chicken with Quinoa Bowl: At first look, it looks a healthier option: sour cream, tomato salsa/compote, blanched French beans, broccoli, zucchini, bell peppers and carrots, grilled chicken in balsamic vinegar sauce with fresh quinoa. But the taste is very average – sour cream being too sour, tomato salsa too tangy and chicken too sweet. The fresh vegetables and the quinoa are the saving grace of this bowl.


Spaghetti Alfredo Bowl: In a white sauce based dish, the proportion of cheese and cream should be in optimal quantities. Too much of cheese can mar the dish by rendering the sauce thick. The same incidence happened here. The spaghetti was perfect, the vegetables crunchy, only if the the quantity of cheese was slightly lesser. RECOMMENDED.


Tiramisu Jar: I ate this after a day of delivery and trust me, it was as good as new! The cream was airy and fresh, the biscuit crumbs crunchy and the banana slices smooth and sweet. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Grill Kitchen, Malviya Nagar

Food, food and sometimes too much of it. Don’t we all get bored of the same chicken tikka or daal makhani? It is cooked at our homes by us and our parents and served at all the north Indian restaurants and weddings. Sometimes, I wonder the sheer monotony of the same dishes.

To break this drudgery, The Grill Kitchen has come up with a novel taste to the same old dishes. A slight twist in the recipes and boom, you have a different conept. Not like serving the old wine in a new bottle and not overhauling the traditional recipes.

The food explorer in me was delighted to savour their lovely preparations:

Prawn dimsum: Who says that dishes fashioned out of smelly prawns need to have a strong whiff of sea? Subduing that unwanted aroma is where the skill of the chef is tested and if he/she is able to achieve this, then hats off! These prawn dimsums tasted like prawns but did not smell too much like them. The thin skin enclosing excellently flavoured minced prawn is a paradisiacal dish for prawn and dimsum lovers. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Bhatti chicken: It was way too tangy and dry. There was rum added in it but that should have made it a bit bitter not tangy.


Galouti kebab: Mellow and melt in the mouth made with the finest mutton mince – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Kadhai chicken: The dhaba style chicken served here is pure love. The medley of juicy chicken pieces drenched in a thick gravy of green bell peppers, tomatoes, onions and cumin seeds is sure to entice you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Daal makhani: Decadency at its best! A hard core non vegetarian like me does not drool over daal makhani but this one forced me to. The daal served here was so flavourful, hot, creamy and spicy with every aspect in balance. Once I started having this with their chewy maida naan, I could not control myself. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


Roasted chicken in herbs: This one should be on your priority tasting list if you love the sort of chicken in which the juicy flesh falls off the bones. This one was a s succulent as a chicken can get and was roasted in tangy Zaatar herbs and Indian spices. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
