EatingOut in Delhi – An al fresco supper at Amalfi

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. Sure, making a mark amongst heavyweights such as Olive Bar & Kitchen, Lodi – The Garden Restaurant, and Sevilla – The Claridges is no mean feat, but within minutes of stepping onto the cobbled stone terrace of this South Delhi Restaurant, its discerning appeal was undeniable.

EatingOut – The California Boulevard in Gurgaon

EatingOut – The California Boulevard in Gurgaon

It was Saturday, the Fourth of July. My Twitter timeline & Facebook / Instagram feeds were heavily populated with updates on fireworks and parades, summer barbeques and picnics, and all manners of patriotic festivities from across the globe. Meanwhile, I was sitting holed up in my cubicle at work, feeling increasingly restless.

Yum Yum Cha – A Sushi Lover’s Dream

Yum Yum Cha – A Sushi Lover’s Dream

I had been hearing rave reviews for Yum Yum Cha for months! And I had passed by the always choc-a-bloc full, open-faced restaurant in Select Citywalk Mall in Saket multiple times; the colourful décor and spicy aromas were consistently beckoning.

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.

The Pizza Place Series – Episode 4

The Pizza Place Series – Episode 4

It’s been nearly a whole year since the last episode of the Pizza Place Series came out, but I can assure you I still take my duties as Delhi’s self-appointed Pizza sampler very seriously!

It was beginning to seem like every restaurant serving Pizza in our city was comfortable casting it into a supporting role. It isn’t Good Pizza that we lack in Delhi, because reliable options like Olive Bar and Kitchen in Mehrauli, La Piazza at The Hyatt, or even Three Sixty One at The Oberoi Gurgaon are dishing out some very delectable slices.

What was missing though, was something that could really and truly be called – A Pizza Place!

First Look – SodaBottleOpenerWala, Khan Market

First Look – SodaBottleOpenerWala, Khan Market

I first visited SodaBottleOpenerWala way back in February of this year when the new Cyber Hub eatery in Gurgaon was pretty much the talk of the town. My impression of the restaurant at that time was a mix of good and bad, which I wrote about here. While the décor and ambience certainly appealed to me, the food during that meal left much to be desired. I left that day, feeling that I wouldn’t be too keen to return, and I didn’t.

But then they went and opened another outlet in one of my favourite locations – Khan Market, and an invitation for the opening found its way into my Inbox.

The Oriental Set-Lunch at Guppy by Ai, Lodhi Colony Market

A few years ago, quite a few youngsters clued in to Delhi’s fickle party circuit were devastated when yet another popular bar closed down. What they didn’t realize was that there was another segment of people equally crestfallen at the loss of GOOD Japanese food.

Introducing GourmetItUp’s new 6-Course experience at Hao Shi Nian Niann

Hao Shi Nian Niann is a speciality Chinese (Sichuan) restaurant located in the M-Block Market of Greater Kailash 2, and they are the latest to partner with GourmetItUp, a culinary web-portal that offers specially curated course meals to its members. I wrote all about GourmetItUp here in case you want to refresh your memory. You really should go sign up guys; they’re getting better day by day. A little birdie told me Olive just linked up with them as well (*does a little happy dance).

GourmetItUp comes to Delhi – A Food Safari at Uzuri Deck & Dining, GK-2

We sure seem to love different dining experiences these days, the more unique and unconventional the better.

Diggin at Anand Lok – putting all other Shakes to shame

It’s times like these I wish I was still in college, a carefree Delhi University student.
If I was still in college, or if a place like Diggin had opened up opposite my campus all those years ago, this is where I would always be.
