EatingOut in Delhi – An al fresco supper at Amalfi

It’s a little strange that Amalfi hasn’t found itself on any list of Delhi’s most romantic restaurants.

To say that I was brimming over with curiosity to find out what the fuss was all about would be a gross understatement!

I have absolutely no idea why it took me so long to try it out, but now that I have, I can’t stop raving about Yum Yum Cha myself.
