Crispy Tofu in Teriyaki sauce Asian greens: The tofu is definitely crispy but could have been mellow from inside.

797EA7E1-8B6C-4FCC-8390-F392D01905C4

Miso Soy Chicken in Teriyaki sauce: Ahhh the sweet and sour medley of Teriyaki sauce with black pepper is enchanting. The chicken could have been juicier though.

636FBE61-6FDD-4E9D-9693-9D0187876F31

Chicken & Bacon Caesar Salad: The lettuce & the iceberg lettuce are definitely crunchy with tender chicken bits and crispy bacon strips. The light creamy texture is an add on.

599DBA3A-9A79-4DDB-A99F-6D0903486582

Chicken Tikka Pizza Handmade Pizza: The thin crust is so darn good with the high quality warm cheese giving the extra oomph factor. But let’s not forget the succulent chicken cubes in all their glory.

Pepperoni Pizza: You know you are going to experience food gasm when pepperoni comes loaded in gooey cheese on a thin crust.

Sweet corn handmade pizza: Simplicity at its best!

8C6A22C3-DF29-42A7-A421-2AF4E00D57BD

River sole Parmigiana: The sole is grilled to perfection with a cheese crust on top and served on a bed of creamy lemon & capers risotto – could not have been so good!

EA7D611D-ACDB-4CF0-8B9A-FA6FAD9B4FA1

Hakka noodles with tofu in black bean sauce and Kung Pao Chicken: The noodles are of a very fine variety and the Kung Pao chicken is so flavourful! The chicken cubes are luscious and served in a sticky gravy of onion-garlic-bell peppers along with crunchy peanuts. 

3C16012E-5821-4E6B-A1B6-98567C873BB0

Tofu tastes slightly sour because it is drenched in black bean sauce.

Chocolate Decadence: A gluten free, soft, gooey and ultra sinful dark chocolate cake with a mousse like texture – I actually finished this in one go.

33C8DF7C-43D1-453E-ADF0-FCC73A40BF9C

Apple and berry linzer torte: A type of meshed pie with warm tones and enclosing chopped apples and juicy berries. The flavour of cinnamon is very well pronounced here.

Baked Pizza & Co. , M block market, GK – 1, New Delhi

Looks like M block Greater Kailash market is upping it’s game when it comes to giving authentic Italian cuisine experiences.
Baked Pizza is a newly opened cafe with soothing interiors and an open kitchen with a wood fired oven to boost.

Pesto chicken Caesar salad: Ohhh the lightness of this salad casts a spell on me! The crunchy rocket & lettuce leaves, the firm chicken in the pesto sauce and the not so creamy flavour make this salad highly recommended.

DSC_0145-01

Baked Cannolini: Spinach cannolini does not taste like one. The bitterness of spinach is absent and it’s mince goes well in the pasta sheets. The perfectly balanced mixture of red and white sauce and the melt in the mouth texture of this sauce will definitely leave you in splits. Highly recommended.

DSC_0141-01

Cheese me baby: One of the best margharitas that I have ever tasted! The creamy amalgamation of four different types of cheese: bocconcini, English cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan compliments the occasional bitter bite of fresh basil leaves. Highly recommended.

IMG_20190309_140427-01

Vinny’s list pizza: Every possible product of chicken which can be imagined is here. The chicken chorizo, sausage and keema, along with mushroom and caramelized onions is heavenly! Recommended.

DSC_0153-01

Classic garlic bread sticks: Freshly baked with mozzarella cheese and enclosing tangy jalapenos and juicy sweet corn and served with garlic aoli – need we ask for more? Highly recommended.

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?

IMG_20190127_142154-01

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.

IMG_20190127_143136-01

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.

IMG_20190127_144003-01

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.

BricknBean Cafe, M3M Mall, Gurgaon

BnB signature salad: Talk about the taste and talk about the presentation – everything was spot on. Specially the usage of wooden cutlery – so earthy, so rustic. The salad is subtle with the goodness of skinned oranges, fresh rockets leaves, crunchy roasted almonds, soft Buffalo cheese and pomegranate seeds.

1539926248940_DSC_0056-01

Grilled vegetables pizza: Thin crust rules the roost these days and when slathered with a good quality warm mozarella cheese, leaves no stone unturned to astonish you. The juicy cherry tomatoes, sliced yellow and green zucchini, chewy mushrooms and tangy black olives contribute towards the loveliness of this masterpiece.

DSC_0063-01

3 mushroom risotto: Subtle cheesiness, juicy and chewy shiitake, button and porcini mushrooms define this dish. Overall good taste but could have been more flavourful.

IMG_20181018_124853-01

BnB Signature pasta: A version of the usual spaghetti carbonara. The way the cheese blends with the Al Dante spaghetti is phenomenal and when combined with firm not chewy bacon, this will blow your mind.

DSC_0077-01

Orange garlic grilled fish: Top marks to the presentation. And equally top marks to the flavour and texture. The lightly crusted fish is so mellow plus the welcoming tang of orange with chopped garlic is so refreshing. The juicy grilled vegetables – yellow and green zucchini and mushrooms are well doused in the Italian herbs mixture.

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.

IMG_20180701_212524-01

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.

IMG_20180701_212702-01

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.

IMG_20180519_140716-01

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.

Healthy Eats, Malviya Nagar, New Delhi

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.

Overall rating: 3/5
