Remember, Team ChicLifeByte told you about Select CITYWALK being a foodie’s paradise in addition to being a shopping paradise! If you missed reading the post, you can read it here. After all, it has the perfect place to dine in, whatever be the occasion. From food, grocery & confectionary to cafes and fine dining restaurants, there are infinite choices to choose from! Plus, the staff here doesn’t treat you as customers but guests. Let me tell you about my dining experience which at my last two visits to the shopping center. A café and a fine dining restaurant, is what I tried and hitherto encapsulated is my entire experience:
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.
For all the housewives, single parents or for those who want to save time and live a faster & easier life, Tupperware has some good news for you! Living in a fast paced world and always rushing for work or the kids tantrums on the breakfast table, you ought to be fast & quick! That’s what Tupperware has come out with the art of making food in quick, easy and safe way that it can be a child’s play in the new Speedy Chef to whip or whisk food or the Juist with a twist to make fresh juices or the Ultimo Smart Chopper to make your chopping experience worth all your money. All these 3 products are a part of their innovative Time Savers Range.
Ansal Plaza had become nostalgia! It was our hub during school days for every need, whether it was about hanging out with friends at a nice café/restaurant or shopping. Gradually, it lost its charm to other fancy malls and in no time we forgot our favourite place.
Recently I got to know about a new eatery called Taksim which opened up at this place which was our so called ‘adda’ at some point of time! I could not resist myself as I finally reached Ansal Plaza on a Friday evening to get the same feel I used to get years back and to try the new eatery!
10th to 12th February 2017 was known as the foodies weekend coz there were 4 food festivals taking place in Delhi NCR. In just one weekend it was impossible to go to all 4 food festivals, so we had to choose one! I had never been to Palate Fest before so I chose to go there. Held at Nehru Park, it opened doors from 11 AM to 11 PM from Feb 10 to 12, 2017.
Palate Fest Reimagined 2017 is known as an all-encompassing Food & Music Festival jam packed with exclusive fine-dining restaurants & world class chefs, Palate fest has proven itself to be one of India’s best culinary events, loved by families and the youth alike. So Team ChicLifeByte with an empty stomach went ahead to explore the culinary delights from the best of the restaurants under the open sky! The big wide lawn with colourful branding of the fest welcomed us whole-heartedly!
Who doesn’t like to go for a shopping spree? It would be any girl’s dream to spend a day at a premium shopping center like Select CITYWALK amongst the national and international brands it offers. For me, my retail therapy usually ends with food therapy and while we go mad selecting the right dress or the right attire for an upcoming event or occasion, it is important to get the right fuel for your body! And that’s when we head to the superior restaurants here. Select CITYWALK gives us a choice between Confectionary, Cafes and Fine Dining restaurants which I think is great because we always have either a little hunger and do not want something too heavy while at times we are completely done with our shopping hauls and want a nice relaxing comfortable meal at a fine dining restaurant. So, lets see what the place holds for us. The food selection is divided in 3 heads:
Everybody loves his or her cup of favourite tea blend every morning or even after a walk or stressful day to retire, a cup of happiness is what you need. However the blends we take are high on caffeine but I recently attend Teamonk Global Workshop 2017 by Teamonk who are the connoisseurs of specialty teas. Infact they are the only tea venture offering quality pure & natural teas created & grown in harmony of Arunachal, Assam, Nilgiris & Darjeeling. Let the freshest leaves distil in water from the brewer to your favourite tea cup and in your belly to satiate your senses.
Fresc Co located in Janpath, Connaught Place and Ambience Mall, Gurgaon is the perfect place to dine-in for couples & family especially when Valentine’s Day is coming. Whether you are planning to surprise your beloved or your best friend or family, a meal at Fresc Co will ensure you have a perfect time.
Guppy- a contemporary outlet in the heart of the city has a lot to offer other than authentic Japanese cuisine and mesmerizing ambiance.
As you enter the cozy place, you get to take a seat in the open-air seating area that allows you to enjoy the freshness of the weather as well as your hot piping food. Caution: you should take a seat inside if you are allergic to smoke as the open-air seating allows guests to make judicious use of cigars and cigarettes. We preferred to walk in and take a seat in a comfy corner. You get a warm welcomed by the ever-so-sweet staff and also get to see live preparations that the chef is mastering.
