I entered Maquina in Hauz Khas Village where I could the waiters & bartenders in hats & unusual costumes. I could see the bartenders juggle with the glasses which was very interesting to watch. The lights were dim & I could feel the Goan zing as everyone was rejoicing in the music which filled the entire space with lots of enthusiasm & cheers.
One look at the menu & to say it, it was 80% Mexican menu. They have a lot of Mexican starters with the main course being American. We met the New York based Chef, Chef Ajay Chamoli who has more than 10 years of experience in food making and is now in Delhi since 6 months.
The décor at Courtyard by Marriott was done in green, white & orange with blooms & streamers on the eve of 15th August which evoked the patriotic spirit in me & I couldn’t stop but gaze at the beautiful interiors. I went there to try the Independence Day Brunch at Momo Café.
Zaza Box is the magic box of goodness & nutrition and in Spanish “Nutricion deliciosamente” is the right word to describe the meal that was there in the beautiful wooden Zaza Magic Box.
Zaza Box is a delivery service started by an IIT Bombay alumnus Avinav Nigam & his wife Sonal who has been a Gym Fitness coach for 10 years & also a Miss India 2007 semi-finalist (WOW). They wanted people to have healthy nutritional meals & organic food with natural ingredients within the comfort & confines of their home. Zaza Box reads healthy fine dining in a box. Their magic boxes are divided into 3 categories that are changed daily & are wholesome and full on with health power:
My recent shopping spree took me to Select City Walk at Saket. After I had shopped to my heart’s content, I entered the food court as I was a little hungry. As I entered I saw this nice looking pop up store called Artful Baker. I glanced at the food kept on display and I immediately decided to try out the stuff. It had delicious cakes, croissants, breads and many other sweet and savory items. It not only looked amazing but also offered great flavors in less calories, less guilt and was also not too pricey.
The newly opened Hybrid shines in the richness of metal & chains like the London Dungeon but never I got scared here as the Hybrid walls made a wall of fame & the Batsman wall made me more fond of the place. The interiors are hard core done with metal & bottles everywhere. I met Vaibhav, the co-owner of Hybrid who was really polite & introduced us to the Chef Tajinder.
Zamozza stands in the high class market of Connaught Place (CP). Zamozza in Hindi Punjabi means fun & entertainment, remember that song from Jab we met “Mauja hi mauja” and the ‘a’ of Zamozza resembles Nachos & Samossa.
Vidur Kanodia, the owner of Zamozza wanted to something different & take the challenge of multi cuisine without Indian & Chinese food therefore he went ahead with 4 of his very well experienced & professional chefs who specialize in Mexican, Italian, Turkish & Thai cuisines. Now people expect variety not in dishes but also cuisines. Italy, Istanbul & Bangkok appear in the skyline art wall of Zamozza.
Kids Pizza Party was organised by Pizza Express at Ambience Mall, Gurgaon for a unique & exciting kids pizza making experience.
Pizza Express was founded in 1965 by Peter Boizot & specializes in those conventional Italian flavours. As I walked in, I just fell in love with the ambience created with red & copper lamps hanging beautifully from the ceiling. It builds up the interiors of every restaurant in its unique manner. In Vasant Kunj, Pizzaexpress has a theme of pottery and in Gurgaon it has an open ceiling look. The restaurant is very tastefully done with perfect choice of colours and light. It has about 400 outlets across United Kingdom and overseas in Europe, Pakistan, Hong Kong, India and the Middle East. The concept on which Pizza Express operates is Transparency in form of an OPEN KITCHEN. Their main aim is trust build up & satisfaction of customers. With an open kitchen customers can be sure of hygiene and process of cooking.
The Black burger at Barcelos, Khan Market is the talk of the town & now comes the Red burger, which I personally favour is the heart beat of the town coz it’s red (cranberry red) made of tomato powder, chilli flakes & the best of sesame seeds in the market.
The Red burger is available in 3 variants: Vegetarian, Chicken & Lamb.
This week I went to Zingo Star, the newly opened café in GK – 2. Now who doesn’t want to have a sumptuous meal in a cozy place with good music? I fell in love with the ambience instantly and liked the relaxed feel of the place. The manager Tushar told me about the founders Sohrab Sitaram and Raghav Kapoor from Delhi who took interest in food and thus began this journey.
