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.

Woowww!!!! Simple Wow

My best experience till now with Farzi. I have visited many of their outlets in India. But was pleasantly surprised that Indian food was equally tempting and overwhelming in abroad too. The quality was equally good and food was perfectly Farzified  as always. 

To add on it was a beautiful afternoon and me and my friend took a table outside. Beautiful interior and equally the exterior too

The service was at its best. We were hosted so well and these guys made us feel so special and royal. We were served a complimentary Indian Masala Tea at the end of our meal and it simply added that extra charm to the beautiful weather that day.

BARIS – THE COMPLETE MEDITERRANEAN EXPERIENCE

“BARIS” which means peace in Turkish is another charm added to the GK 3 market. Probably the best by far. I use to visit this market for my ice cream cravings. But now I guess I have a more tempting reason to visit this place.

“Baris” is all about giving you a complete Mediterranean  experience, right from its interior to service, food to music. Its a complete package of food, culture and customs. Lovely meeting the owner of the Place Arjun Toor, who shared his story behind this great place. His love for Mediterranean grew while his stay in that part of the world and feel in love with their cuisine and culture.
Wanted to bring back the same taste and flavour back to his country, he started the project Baris. This place is not just about food, these guys will give you a whole  experience 

BUT OMG!! Im in love with their terrace place. Such a beauty
You won’t regret siting outside while in this weather in Delhi due to their awesome cooling technology. And in winters I’m sure it will be so attractive to sit there and dine.
Once you are inside the place you will be mesmerised by the decor and music. Its like a journey to the East. And finally the food over here speaks everything. This place is a compete package.
Loved all the items

This is a Mediterranean theme restaurant. Although they are also specialist in cuisines from Turkey and Middle East.

Mediterranean food is incredibly popular: sausages, wine, kebab, falafel,pasta and pizza, can be found just about everywhere. Food experts and cookbook authors adore Mediterranean cuisine. Mediterranean cuisine is defined by the presence of fundamental elements which are said to play a more important role than others, reflecting a community of beliefs and practices which transcend religions, languages and even societies.

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_3c5

Turkish cuisines largely the continuation of Ottoman Cuisine ( It is the cuisine of the Ottoman Empire and its continuation in the cuisines of Turkey, Greece, the Balkans and parts of the Caucasus and the Middle East, which in turn borrowed many elements from Circassian, Central Asian, Middle Eastern, Balkan and Greek cuisines

It includes Arab cuisine, Iranian and Persian cuisine, Israeli cuisine, Jewish, Cyproit, Kurdish cuisine and few more. Some commonly used ingredients include olives and olive oil, pitas, honey, sesame seeds, chickpeas, parsley and dates etc. Some popular dishes include Kebabs, Dolma, Baklava and Doner Kebab.

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.

THE PASTA BOWL COMPANY

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.

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.
