Binge, Qutab Plaza, DLF phase 1, Gurgaon

A cute looking bakery situated in the bustling Qutab Plaza market, Binge surely has the traits to become your next go to bakery. Enter it at your own risk, because you will be flabbergasted by the grand display of extremely creative looking cakes, a slew of breads – white, brown and multi grain and eye pleasing desserts. The wooden interiors with some classy paraphernalia adorning the walls will definitely take your breathe away.

On my recent throng to this place, here are a few dishes that I tasted:

Veggie salad: Such freshness with the goodness of the lime vinaigrette dressing is absolutely out of the world. Slightly blanched and crunchy vegetables – cauliflower, sweet corn, broccoli, bell peppers, French beans and black olives on a bed of lettuce leaves with the tanginess of dressing – healthy and yummy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Vegetable Lasagna: Having been brought up on heavily cheesy lasagne, this one was a refresher. Thick cheese layer on top which was slightly burnt and chewy with three light layers below sandwiching a good quantity of vegetables drenched in white sauce – can we ask for more? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Blueberry cupcake: A pretty looking dessert with pink frosting on top but not so inviting in taste. The muffin was extremely dry and difficult to bite into and the cream. The only saving grace was the presence of real blueberries inside the cake.

Lemon tart: Not good at all. The tart tasted stale and was not uniform and the lemon pulp was way too tangy.

The Junction, Hauz Khas, New Delhi

This new property in Delhi is actually a junction of multiple cuisine trains. Spread across a huge area with different sections, this one boasts of a distinct sushi and dimsums bar, The Big Baker with a lovely assortment of desserts, a pizzeria, an outdoor seating area under the shade of trees (full marks for that) and indoor fine dine area. The Junction redefines the word multi-cuisine for you by serving multiple cuisines from all the courses. Here are a few of them that I recently tasted:

Veg pizza: The thinnest crust with a lovely succulency and the chewiness and juiciness of yellow and green zucchinis should not be missed. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chicken dimsums: The exceptionally thin exterior is attractive but the extremely tangy flavour of the mine chicken mince is not acceptable.

IMG_20170327_170612-01

Mushroom wantons: I usually avoid wantons because they are deep fried but I could not keep my hands off this one. The finely chopped mushrooms were enveloped in a chewy exterior whichw as fried to crispy perfection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

California roll: Their sushis are a must try and this one was a burst of subtle flavours – sweet, tangy and piquant. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20170327_164548-01

Mac n cheese: Ahh, the gooey cheese works its magic again! The al dante macaroni drenched in warm parmesan with bits of chicken is one dish which you would not want to miss! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20170327_170118-01

Veg mezze platter: I have never ever tasted a mezze platter like this one! For the first time, the pita breads were slathered with butter and were soft yet crispy – the characteristic brittleness was absent here. Additionally, the beetroot flavoured dip was ohh-so-delicious! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Prawn dimsums: If you leave the intense watery aroma of prawns aside, the these dimsums are heavenly! The skin and the filling are perfect and better than the chicken ones here.

Chicken and cashewnut dumplings: Who could have thought that the nuttiness and crunchiness of the cashewnuts could be used to innovate the usual chicken dimsums? These guys did and it turned out excellent! And the form of these lovelies are way too attractive. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Dezertfox, Greater Kailash -1, New Delhi

Dessert lovers from the Delhi NCR region are in for a roll! Because finally there is a place which serves the most eye pleasing and delectable sugary savouries, presented in a fine dine style but optimally priced. No jokes when I write about food because Dezertfox is real!

I shall call it the Disneyland of desserts because their creations are full of fantasy and out of the world. The head pastry chef Niscar Noorullah has done a plethora of innovations while designing the menu. Infact, some of the items are gluten free and flourless. So here are some of them that I tasted :

Berry Yoghurt Smoothie : A healthy smoothie made with fresh yoghurt and filled with strawberries and black currant. It was light to drink and not too sweet. However the amount of ice can be reduced here.

Hazelnut dome with caramel and hazelnut crisp with hazelnut mousse : A lovely dome made out of hazelnut flavoured chocolate topped with hazelnut and caramel crisp and surrounded by hazelnut mousse is tantalizing to the taste buds. The mousse is a bit bitter but has a fine texture. The crisps or the meringues just break in your mouth with the slightest hit. RECOMMENDED.

img_20161113_152754

Passion fruit framboise : A colourful and a subtle dessert, it has the dominant flavours of passion fruit and raspberry. Slightly tangy and delicately sweet, this dessert has a soft sponge and a light, airy feel to it. RECOMMENDED.

img_20161113_152932

Philadelphia Cheese Cake : This is the gluten free dessert that I mentioned before. It has a flourless cake at the bottom and has a prominent tangy sweet flavour of orange and lemon due to the use of zests of these fruits. The cheesecake has a smooth texture and is subtly sweet in taste. RECOMMENDED.

img_20161113_152727

Pistachio and fig cake : Vividly coloured in green and having a soft sponge, this cake will win the hearts of those who love pistachios. The cake has minimal sweetness and the lovely flavour of pistachio is to die for. RECOMMENDED.

img_20161113_155056

Chocolate sin : A very fine way to make a dessert having myriad flavours. The dessert consists of an intricate cylinder of chocolate which is filled with chocolate and cream ganache and wrapped in a chocolate crepe. The chocolate cylinder is oh-so-smooth with the finest ganache. Again the sweetness is subtle here. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

img_20161113_153258

Eclairs – Rose and raspberry : I love the flavour of rose and if it is used in an éclair, then I can never stop myself from having more. The éclair is super soft and sweet and has the decadent flavour of rose and raspberry in the filled mousse, which in my opinion is a pretty good combination. A sheet made of chocolate, rose and raspberry tops the éclair and make it even prettier and tastier. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

img_20161113_154652

Green tea mousse with pineapple compote with pistachio lemon cake : A very different take on a dessert – combining the bitterness of green tea with the sweetness of mousse. The mousse is perfectly smooth in texture and soft in taste. Recommended if you like green tea.

img_20161113_152835

Red Velvet Tiramisu Bon Bon : A pink coloured, dark chocolate shell containing tiramisu should be called as the king of desserts. It is beautiful to look and sometimes, you feel bad for breaking the shell. But once you taste the inside of the shell, you will be flabbergasted to the core. Because the flood of diverse flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, cream and strawberries will give you a major sugar rush. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

img_20161113_152802

Coriander passion curd tart : A chocolate shell topped with meringue crisps, this is again a subtle dessert with the sourness of passionfruit dominating it.

img_20161113_153756

Rose cupcake : The prettiest dessert after the Tiramisu Bon Bon. I ate the whole cup cake with no complaints. The cupcake is topped with rose flavoured cream which is subtly flavoured and has a heavenly smooth texture. To top my madness, the sponge was flavoured with rose, yes, no vanilla, just plain rose. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
