Awadhi mutton dum biryani: The mutton pieces were available in plenty and were mellow in taste but the biryani was way too spicy. Awadhi dum biryani is supposed to be high on flavours and low on spices but the case was opposite here. There were bundles of raw spices, burnt flavour of caramelized onions and absence of saffron – for a biryani, these are not good signs.
Hyderabadi chicken dum biryani: Well well, these folks surely know how to dish out the most juicy, spice loaded non vegetarian but again, this biryani was not as spicy as a Hyderabadi should be. RECOMMENDED.
Gaajar ka halwa: This fabulous Indian dessert deserves a worthy mention here. First, this has to be the best gaajar ka halwa I have had apart from my home. Second, the melt in the mouth consistency will leave you love struck. Third, the moderate sweetness and the subtle finesse with which it has been prepared will compel you to have more of it. The owner told me that they stir the grated carrots in ghee for a longer duration and this activity gives the halwa the requisite mouth warming texture. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
When Pas Asian cuisine can be relished in the comfort of your office or home without the hassle of cooking, then what more can you ask for?
We recently laid our hands on the newest entrant to the South/Pan Asian delivery outlet – MeKong Bowl. The delivery was on time with neat packaging.
Barbeque chicken dimsums: It is difficult to stop yourself when sweet tasting finely minced chicken is wrapped into thin dimsum skin and served piping hot. Though we wish that the flavour of the barbeque sauce was more pronounced. RECOMMENDED.
Pad Thai Noodles: Moist flat noodles drenched in a tomato based tangy sauce and served with finely chopped onions is indeed your culinary dream come true, but the presence of sprouts and vegetables was sorely missed.
Udon noodle bowl: Ohhh boy, where to start? Subtle tasting slurpy udon noodles served with juicy shiitake and button mushrooms, crunchy baby corns and bak choy leaves with a generous amount of sweet and spicy coconut based gravy – a maelstrom of flavours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The Hidden Hour is now in Delhi and we couldn’t be more happier! They have introduced three more games- “The Haunted Hostel” , “Space Wars-The Alien Attack” and “Lost in an Island- The Amazing Escape”. After having a good time at their Gurugram center, I was bubbling with excitement to try out this one!
So I tried “Space Wars- The Alien Attack” and it was amazing. They have a perfect storyline to make this escape game believable. In this one your spaceship has been attacked by aliens and you have to solve all the clues given and plan your escape as well in just 60 minutes. Nothing is virtual in here, all the objects are real. They locked all of us in a room and there were so many clues, hidden puzzles in that room which you had to piece together. The game certainly requires out-of-the-box thinking and make the rusted clogs of your brain work. The game is thrilling, exhilarating and mind boggling at the same time. The timer compels you to solve things fast. This is precisely what action movies or those finding-hidden-objects-in-a-room games are made up of. Every team mate plays an important role and this game would be good for corporate team building exercises. The 60 minutes fly by and you are left wanting for more.
If you are an adrenaline junkie, this is a perfect place for you. The Aliens are waiting to attack your ship, are you brave enough to thwart their plans?
