Dilli’s Chawla Chicken

Delhi, India

The food here packs a punch, their gravies are a melange of spices and come out beautifully. Had the soya Chaap Masala and will go back for it again. The portion size is big enough for two and the rotis that I had to accompany it were wholewheat and crisp.  Do ask for their yogurt mint chutney

Pickwicks, Claridges

Delhi, India

Was staying with them and was there for breakfast 3 days in a row.  Their buffet is not the most elaborate like you would see in modern five star hotels due to lack of space however they make up for the same with  items like eggs, dosas, pancakes etc coming from the kitchen. You will love their croissants and other morning pastries. Do try their homemade Granola bar!

Perch Wine and Coffee bar

Delhi, India

Went to this place on a Saturday night when they had a live band. The place has a English cafe like feel with all the wooden furniture.  I settled at the bar and ordered a cocktail, Bourbon toast, it was well made. So was the Welsh Rarebit but it came out cold with the bread being slightly chewy, but it paired fine with the drink. We neither tried coffee nor had wine at this place. Some other time perhaps.

Public Affair


I passed by the door a few times before locating it, going by the name they certainly don’t want to make it a speak easy. The place is split over two levels and offers nice al fresco seating, amazing in the Delhi weather. The place has an extensive cocktail list and a elaborate food menu. I was with friends and we ordered a few barrel aged cocktails, they were great however the portions seemed short of the regular. I also tried their bartender Tenzin’s signature with Balsamic, it was sweet, umami laden and refreshing.  For food don’t miss their Seed, walnut and Caramelized onion flat bread!

A couple of drinks and snacks will cost you Rs 2000 a head

Flyp by Mtv

Delhi, India

This place is huge, but there are too many aspects to the decor that make its loud than chic. We settled at the bar on a very quiet Sunday night (atleast the place was) to meet two enthusiastic bartenders who told us more about the few months old place. We were amused but pleased to understand that they have showers and lockers too, it is in line with their ‘work,play, chill’ mantra of MTv as the place changes avatar from a work den to a party place. We were there for night caps and end up having some quirky cocktails with cool presentations at a mere Rs 250 ++ for each and the cocktails were great for the price.  W’ll go back for more cocktails.

Al Jawahar

Delhi, India

As a vegetarian you may not have enough options in this place however I ended up here just to soak in the charm of Old Delhi the vibe of the vicinity. I order a soul soothing and artery-choking  baida curry ( eggetarian me) with the very rich Sheermal ( a type of bread with eggs, milk, cardamom and sugar) . The spice and the piquancy of the masala ( spiced oil ) went exceedingly well with the hint of sweetness in the sheermal. A visit to this place is warranted!

Odeon Social

Delhi, India

A high tea at Social Hauz was followed by drinks and dinner at their Odeon space. Their latest addition, this place again goes with a different theme, going back to school. The servers in school uniform, central table appointments with rulers and pencils and gong at the gate, a honors black board and more. Well we reached there at 9 and I found the place too dark to appreciate any food or drink and the AC used to stop intermittently making it very hot.  Nonetheless the drinks were great and the food from the Chakna to the lehsun spaghetti and the sticky toffee pudding were delicious. Again needless to say, very easy on the pocket.  I would perhaps prefer it in the morning with day light coming in.
