We all know of Yell as a clothing brand but this time we headed to Yell not for my clothing needs but for my food needs. Yes, the new age boutique café, Café Yell founded by Vipul and Divya Gupta is the new hub at Defence Colony. Located above Yell showroom, Café Yell is made in the form of an Italian style café that focuses quite simply on excellent coffee, great food and hospitable service. Though the first look of the café seemed as if we have entered a fancy tailoring shop or a designer’s studio! Various items of tailoring and fashion can be seen across the walls and ceiling – colourful threads, sewing machine, hanger lamps, clothes, colour pencils, iron, small trunk and big colourful buttons. Each element was distinctively present against the white walls of the cafe. There was also a man and women model wrapped with wool blends. Wooden couches with red backrest on one side with purple and red chairs seated us comfortably.
Prominently seen at the famous SDA Market is the branding of Scooter On The Wall which attracted us towards the place on a Friday evening and we immediately made up our mind to visit it! We had to try hard to find the entry because it has a back entry! The moment we saw a scooter cut out, we knew where the entry was from! We started taking the stairs which was through a colorful entry with doors & tyres and led us to a place which was even more colorful with a vibrant surrounding!
When we talk of traditional Punjabi food- the masaledaar, spicy & tadka maarke one cannot forget the name of Punjab Grill, the flagship restaurant from Lite Bite Foods which is most of the times full of Punjabis and food lovers like me.

Jom Jom stands for ‘Go Go’ in Malay language and it truly is an authentic Malaysian restaurant, first of its kind opened in Delhi NCR. Located in the heart of the city at the once-famous-then-dead-now-reviving Ansal Plaza Mall, it is easily accessible and trust me, you would want to visit this place once, again and again.
