Soho Bistro and Cafe, Saket

So this particular area around Western Marg in Saket has been bustling with cozy cafes that are gradually capturing the attention of students and office going workforce alike. Case in point being the very famous Rise Cafe.

You’ll be reminded of the interior me of Elma’s at HKV when you visit Soho. Old world charm with snug ambience greets you and the delicious Italian menu beckons you to order more and more.

French Fries: Crispy exterior and perfectly salted – can we ask for more?

Belgian chocolate shake: Ohhh my! The smooth and thick texture with the rich flavour of chocolate and moderate sweetness will leave you in splits.

Half and half vegetarian pizza: The one half had buffalo cheese, capers, black olives and sun-dried tomatoes and was amazing in taste. The other half had red, yellow and green bell peppers, zucchini and buffalo cheese but was over grilled.

Half and half non vegetarian pizza: The one half had ham & mushrooms – the lovely juiciness of mushroom complimenting the succulence of ham. The other had grilled chicken which was chewy and dry.

Their pizzas are thin crusted and I love the use of buffalo cheese but they need to have more flavourful toppings while keeping the authenticity alive.

Shakes and smoothies are excellent and worth spending upon.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
