Lets talk about what we ate –

# BABA GANOUSH – A creamy flame roasted eggplant dish, blended with best quality Tahini. Seasoned with lemon juice, chopped parsley & extra virgin olive oil. It is served with Pita bread. I liked the creaminess of Baba Ganoush as it was very subtle and flavourful.

# Chocolate Fondant Cake with Vanilla Icecream – After all I ate in the cafe I gave up on ending my day with some dessert. After a while I just scrolled up to the section they kept the dessert and guess what guys!! I could stop myself from eating a little extra. I said to myself, Nicole! you are not having your dinner today, Just have your dessert. But fortunately I am proud of decision to drop dinner & choose my chocolate cake with ice cream. It was indeed a very happy ending 🙂

STUDIO XO BAR

IMG_8114

My life is all about travelling and I am literally living out of a suitcase these days. Which I really enjoy. After a long gap of two and a half month I was back in Delhi. So, staying in Delhi without exploring new food joints is such a waste. So decided to check out few new cool places recently launched.

IMG_8111

Studio Xo Bar  is the one I visited and instantly fell in love. As the name suggests its actually looks like a luxury studio, huge space with stunning interior. The bar area has superb space and I couldn’t resist but get few clicks for myself.

They have a live performance area which is also huge and very attractive. Enough space for everybody, no matter you are in the bar or sitting area or near the live performance area.

Special Winter Menu @Chaayos

IMG_3825

Summer are already approaching in Delhi but its never too late to talk about the amazing memories of winter. I always use to crib about the severe winters in Delhi but this time I was travelling so much that I started missing the weather over here. The places I travelled had moderate climates and I use to wonder how the temperature would be in Delhi. I guess its true that when you are away from something you miss it more.

IMG_3817

Anyways! To cut my long story short, this winter was extra special coz of this one place which I’m in love with now.  “Chaayos”

They have these extra tempting winter special menu which will leave you coming back for more. My favourite will be the different options you get in Chai (Tea). Not only their menu but the unique interiors and captivating designs will leave you mum.

This place has amazed me with its beauty and luxury. And to top it up, the mouth watering food and best of best cocktails. Best place to chill out with friends over few drinks at the beautiful rooftop. The rooftop terrace have been designed extremely well and thoughtfully which makes it even more appealing. In this beautiful winter evenings of Delhi, one must visit tis place and make the most of this amazing place along with their well crafted drinks and food.

final-7

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.
