The story behind “Raise The Bar” is that they take you on a Cocktail Journey through different corners of the world and share untold stories of the land. They start from the glorious Gardens of England; the fruity drinks to the America in the 1920’s with its rich and flavourful gin-based cocktails.

The story doesn’t end there. these guys reached the Amazon Rainforest to create drinks that are exotic and infused with the bittersweet flavours of cocoa and bourbon. They also pay a homage to the Great Himalayas, the mystical land of magic and grandeur, resulting in cocktails soaked with zesty tastes.

Yeti – The Himalayan Kitchen

My quest for authentic flavours took me to this place which offers different cuisine from the Himalayas. Himalayan cuisine is diverse and unique as it covers all ends of the Himalayan borders. In the local staple you will find dishes from China, like chow-mein and spring rolls, or of India, with Curries and Samosas. Himalayan food is a unique food culture which is like a drooling mix of Chinese, Nepalese, Indian and Tibetan favourites.

Himalayan food is much more then just yak meat butter tea and here at “Yeti” its a celebration of different cuisine found there.

“Yeti – The Himalayan Kitchen” is another gem in the Haus Khas market commonly known as “HKV”. Although this place is all about night life and pubs and designer outlets. “Yeti” is a breath of fresh air to me. I love to visit this place due to the fact it gives you a homely feeling and comfort. The ambiance both inside and outside is absolutely perfect for its theme. Good himalayan food with beautiful greenery outside of the place. One can relish a good quality meal with a feel of the nature.

It has the authentic flavour and taste of a home cooked dish. Very rustic. To maintain the flavour these guys even source spices from the Himalayas. The have chefs from the same origin. Nevertheless, this place and its flavours speaks of its own.

This place has become my second home if ever I wanna come over for some comfort food and a relaxed time.Visited the place with some friends and totally fell in love with it. By the time I’m writing this review I have visited the place twice.
And I’m sure I’m coming back for more.

Well!! This review might be a little long review as visiting this place was not just a casual late lunch but a whole new experience. For some moment I felt I was in some Italian restaurant in Italy itself. This place evoked my urge to make a travel plan.
These guys are super serious about their food and doesn’t deviate from the originality.
Right from fresh basil grown in the kitchen, to importing ingredients direct from Italy makes the whole dining experience a gala affair. They have even taken care of the cutleries and plates which gel perfectly with the food served.

image18

One can get a wide variety of good quality Italian Wine and also Indian Wine. They have their own bottles of spring water right from the Himalayas.

image34

The Pasta Bowl Company is an authentic Italian restaurant aiming to give you the best possible Italian Cuisine experience. 
Got the opportunity to sit with “Chef Om” who happens to be the Founder as well, shared amazing stories behind behind creating this place and also knowledge about the Italian food. Learned to pronounce few Italian words correctly. 😉

I had the privilege to taste their new menu – 
“Cucina Con Amore” (Cooked with Love) – A 3 course special menu for late lunchers @999 + tax
The menu is focused on corporates and late launchers.

Ambiance of this place speaks a lot. Simple sitting arrangement, homely decor, lots of natural light coming in, antique wall clock and the music.

CALIENTE – A SWEDISH CHILLI INFUSED DRINK

Caliente has launched in India and guess what! I got my hands on to try out two of their flavours. To my surprise I quite liked it. Its a Chilli infused drink with organic fruit concentrate. Its a Swedish award winning company which is now available in India.

image4

Caliente has been awarded with –

*** “The World’s Best New Adult Drink Concept” – World Beverage Innovation awards 2015
*** “Winner Best New Organic Drink” – Natural and Organic Awards Scandinavia 2015

image1

“Caliente” is a new away winning drink that has been spiked with chilli. Chilli adds character and great taste, without need to add a lots of sugar and it kick starts our endorphins. Its organic and made in Sweden from pure ingredients.

image5

The same stuff that makes chillis hot “Capsaicin” also floods your brain with endorphins, for a natural high. Caliente has come up with unique way of spiking chilli heat, making it one of its kind. For best results… enjoy Caliente slowly and ice cold on its own or pair up with food for an experience beyond comparison.

# Caliente Ginger Lime Chili – 

I quite liked it even though it has a strong flavour of chilli and also the infusion of ginger kicks the spice note too.

Ingredients – 

Water | 15% Organic fruit juice from concentrated grape, lime | Organic raw sugar | Natural aromas | Sea salt 

image2

# Caliente Blueberry Lemongrass Chili –

This would be my favourite so far because I feel its has the perfect bend of chilli and berries. The ratio is quite enjoyable of those who are not into too much spicy drinks.

Ingredients –

Water | 18% organic fruit juice from concentrate apple, blueberry, black carrot, lemon | Organic raw sugar | Natural aromas | Sea salt

Crafted in Sweden from organic ingredients, it’s the ultimate choice for people who are after a complex non-alcoholic drink that’s low on sugar. All are bottled in Småland, Sweden, of 100% natural and certified organic ingredients.

Caliente’s full range now consist of – 

# Plum Rosemary Chili

# Blueberry Lemongrass Chili

# Ginger Lime Chili

# Cranberry Pomegranate Chili

And I would totally agree to each and every word he said. It was not just a casual dine out or just another day with my girl friends. It ended up becoming a gastronomical experience.

Never had such a wonderful time eating out.
