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. When I visited their Select Citywalk branch recently, I was sure that I was in for a treat enticing the aroma of food from the open kitchen.
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:
