The food here is as inviting as its decor with Continental, North Indian, Chinese, Finger Food cuisines on the menu. We ordered :

Nachos: Dive into a piping hot bowl of crispy nachos topped with melted cheese and toppings.Top with salsa, avocado and sour cream. They were very tasty and we just got into love with it. Even though nachos were invented in Mexico, they were created for an Indian palate.

Corn Pepper Salt, was a healthy wholesome gourmet recipe that was well fried corn kernels & stir fried with host of veggies.

Pizza : We ordered for a veggie pizza, cheese burst thin crust with cherry tomatoes, olive, brocolli & mushrooms. It was prepared with soft thin crust and crispy enough for mouth watering added on with cheese. Loved its preparation and presentation. Yumm.

PappaRoti’s bun are selling like hot cakes!!

Cyber Hub is back in trends with lots of new eatery junctions and new lights,music . Love for food can make you travel to far off busy places,just the same happened with me last weekend. I travelled for this peculiar place from Noida, as heard a lot about its signature Buns. With their 18 outlets allover the world ,Papparoti is now bringing their signature buns to India. After Hyderabad, they have recently opened up in Cyber Hub.

Ambience is very lively here with darkwood chairs & sofa seating. Service is very prompt and you will be attended at utmost importance. Servers will ensure you are given full support. They always guide you with what to order. I was too suggested for their Signature Buns. In first serve look, its seems as a regular, brown bun…but when you have its 1st bite, you can feel the most soft, relishing tasty bread, filled inside with a coffee caramel topping.

About the Brand:

In 2003,Malaysia  was the first to be introduced with unique concept of Pappa Roti. It  literally means Father of Breads (Buns here)  & is owned by a woman who is the master franchiser for Middle East. The brand specializes in  unique mouth watering coffee coated butter bun served alongside  with variety of beverages. It has 18 outlets worldwide and now its recently opened in India,Delhi. Its dubai branch is my all time fav.

About Buns:

Here the Buns are served with  coffee to enhance their taste, but even served alone they are whole. With its first bite only, you can feel the delicious aroma and taste of tangy coffee caramel. It’s a soft bun with outer coffee crust prepared with coffee icing and the stuffed butter inside the bun. Coffee icing is piped on top of the bun while baking that melts and get baked and form a thick crust on top. Its said to be a south african origin food.

I visited this place with my friends for evening high tea and snacks. Tried almost their signature dishes and must say its an amazing place to visit. Along with the soft fluffy buns, they also serve aromatic teas in 9 flavors and many other beverages like Ice tea, cold coffees. And the pics says it all.

The brand has witnessed  different expressions with one bite of the bun , so brand has new tagline , “One Bite Different Expressions”.

I had Peach & Mango Icetea, which was yumm. It had full flavors of peach and mango balanced well. Along with it i called for their Signature Bun, with no flavors. Definitely one bite of it was enough to taste their secret.Here you can have many add on flavors to give your bun a twist. Like Honey, Dark chocolate, Strawberry, etc.

Next we had was Maggi Goreng, which was yummiest. 2 eggs poached on special masala style maggi.  After it we tried our hand on South African Flavored origined High tea, in Jasmine Pearl essense. Must say its a worth try and new wine for me !  In snacks we tried Double Chow (veg) – which was bombay styled pao bhaji. Big bread piece pierced in mid and full of bhaji, served along with potato chips. Tasted delicious. Nest we tried small Nonveg pizza, which was crispy and tasty. Corn chaat was cold and served authentic to its flavor.

Last but not the least,we gave a shot at their most USP bun, Nutella with crushed oreo & almonds. Made my day as it was perfect for person with sweettooth like me !

Tawa tales has focused more on menu, which shows the amalgamation of so many dishes. This team has special relationship with several indian cuisines – from heavenly paranthas of Amritsar to staple dosas of chennai to spicy Kolkatta roles to litti choka of rajasthan.

In veg we had, Paneer Butter masala with Lachcha parantha,which was delicious. Paneer was soft & tender blended inside masala thick gravy which was medium on scoville scale. Lachcha parantha was perfect shaped and not at all oily. Next we tried their Parantha menu, where we had Mix & aloo parantha. Must say, had such tasty parantha’s after a long time. Fully stuffed, well cooked parantha’s with perfect flavors & taste. Simply loved it.

In Non veg we had , Chicken tikka masala roll, which again was served hot and tasted delicious. Chicken was soft and tender with perfect sauces inside Parantha.

Cafe Wanderlust… A Culinary Journey !!

Tucked in one corner of Galleria, this is the lone & fun travel cafe in Gurgaon!  Cafe Wanderlust‘s decor is idiosyncratic , focused on people who love to explore and try new delicious delicacies. Its located at the back side of Galleria ,1st floor and seems just like a typical cafe but they have quirky ambience. They have sufficient space which looks bounteous, because of its seating arrangement, ranging from bean bags to old steel chairs to Hanging Jhulla & Egg chairs. Walls are covered with book shelves and customers valuable comments. Games are available to sit and play while your order gets prepared. This makes the customer use his or her time in meaningful way. Sometimes you may find paper and color pens to draw and write not just about the cafe but anything.

The menu is full of pictures of food items they serve along with small description of its history.The cafe is vegetarian. They serve different continental platters for breakfast. The food is not at all oily and has perfect blend of spices.

Best part of their food is, its served with so many sidings, like chutneys of Apple, mango, dhaniya, then Kaanji, raita, pickle etc. So many ways to flavor your food as per your tongue. Sweet to tangy to spicy.We have kicked off our evening with scrumptious delicacies like:

Banarsi Kachori

Taken from streets of Banaras & served with dash of innovation. Four soft kachoris filled with banarsi masala, served with spicy aloo subji & 6 kinds of dips (Methi, Dhaniya, imli, apple cardamom, papaya pickle & raita). Banarsi masala is in-house prepared using ground fresh spices.

Amritsari Cholley Bhature

Everyone and especially punjabi’s all time fav homemade cholley with freshly done bhature. Imli chutney & raddish pickle add a tangyness to it making it more eatsome. Best part of this place is all the masala’s are inhouse. The taste and aroma spring from age old recipes from traditional household.

Lohri farzified @ cyber hub,Farzi Cafe !!

Lohri is one of the most commonly celebrated festival in India and way of spreading joy.India being known for its diverse culture & traditions, here no celebration is complete without good food & dance 😊

This year we planned to celebrate lohri festival with family & friends at Farzi Café (cyber hub) who especially launched lohri menu for people to come and enjoy. To start with they have even scripted the menu card with lohri pics. Lohri is incomplete without bhangra dance on beats of dhol & relish scrumptious meals like we had here today.  So here is a short review about the same.We kicked off our day with delicious dishes like :

Bhuttia aur palak ke tinke

Presentation of the dish is an imp part which makes it more appealing. This worked out best for this dish as you can see in pics. It was curated well in form of lohri sticks. Skewers of sweet corn & spinach rolled on bamboo sticks. Prepared fresh make it feel smooth and soft when in mouth. Plated well with aloo chips that symbolized fire. Sauce was sprinkled well on sticks to symbolize flames and went well with the taste. It was prepared from bell peppers. Dish was amazingly delicious and mouth watering. We repeated the order.

Matka chholley with Lucchi puff

This was next dish served,& increased our hunger more as this is what Punjabi’s crave for. Pindi cholle with maida puri famous as Luchi. Cholle were well prepared with perfect blend of spices. Luchi on other hand was not at all oily adding to the beauty of festival food. Served with chilli pickle and potato fried worked as sidings. Loved this dish as it was toooo delicious.

Bathua Sarso da saag, Makai | Mooli Pide

Again Punjabi’s have to eat this traditional dish of ours to complete the Lohri rituals. Sarso da saag with makki roti is a combination of regional leafy greens cooked with ghee, jaggery & chickpeas flour. Presented in form of a ship, garnished with butter, gurr & raddish. It was a must try dish which can only be enjoyed eating with hand.

Rewari Gajjak Peanut Butter icecrea, caramel popcorns

Sweets are integral part of our punjabi’s festival. Here we had Peanut butter icecream ,which was crunchy from inside served chilled with caramel popcorns and rewari gajjak sidings. Neither too sweet neither less. Perfect blend to end your day with amazing after taste.

It was a great lohri celebration and will look forward to visit this place again!!

GO Gourmet..Fresh snacks to dine at home !!

Gourmet s a cultural idea associated with the culinary arts of fine food and drink,  which is characterized by refined, even elaborate preparations and presentations of aesthetically balanced meals of several contrasting, often quite rich courses. The term and its associated practices are usually used positively to describe people of refined taste and passion. Gourmet food tends to be served in smaller, more expensive, portions.

Being true to its meaning, Go Gourmet, is serving a tasty mix of  Salads & healthy food.It brings its own dash of cookery craziness to the table for those hungering for some scrumptious delicacies.

Gourmet restaurants are going a step further to cater to customers—by giving them the option to dine at home. Delivery services are quick and try to reach us on time as its essential that the packaging retain the freshness and quality of the chef-driven contents.

Parcel packaging is well planned showcasing the ingredients and calories intake. We placed an order for:

1) Falafel Wrap – It was so well stuffed , wholesome Falafel, hummus & veggies in a multi grained tortilla. It tasted well,but lil on spicy end
2) Classic Egg Sandwich – It was a classic combo of egg, whole wheat bread, flavored well with mustard and herbs. Tasted good.
3) BBQ Chicken Wrap – It was really good. It was flavoured Chicken breast piece stuffed in multi grain tortilla. chicken was very juicy and well spiced.
4) Shikanji – as usual they serve beverages with original content. Best in taste
5) Pom Lemonade – Similarly with this. Tasted perfect like fresh juice.

And pictures say it all 🙂

Mr. Mamagoto..Come lets play with Food !

Mamagoto, in literal meaning is an interactive, context aware Japanese dining system which encourage kids to ‘play’ with their food to sense its texture and shape. Inspired from this concept, idea of Mamagoto restro is to give their customers a fun Asian eating experience on the table.

Talking about the ambiance, its a lovely cosy setup which has seating arrangements for all. This place is known for its love towards art which you will notice in their ambiance, which is a depiction of eclectic portrayal. Here in cyber hub, they have both indoor and outdoor comfortable seating. They can definitely work on lights system as seems lil dull to me.

I have been here with my Hubby on a friday eve to enjoy after-office hours. We were immediately attended by a server who assisted us with the menu options and help us understand it , by explaining the ingredients. This was very impressive on part of their service and we quickly placed our order.

We kicked off  with starters quoted next along with our drinks, Watermelon Beach (4/5)-drink of mint, lime, watermelon, sugar, soda and sprite. It was next similar to Kiwi Mint collins (4/4). I loved their Passion fruit & orange cooler (5/5) –which was very refreshing and tasted wow.

  1. Vegetable basil cups which were minced veg, basil and thai herbs served in lettuce cups. Tasted nice with their classic sauces.
  2. Hot & sour pepper soup (Veg) (5/5), which was Mamagoto classic,as its their slight diff version in taste from tradition hot and sour soup, the very small slices of soft paneer in soup was nice and unique.
  3. Street style Dumpling – well cooked and full of veggies.
  4. Old school Gyoza-veg (5/5)- they were good in taste and lot similar to normal dumplings, just lil pan fried.
  5. Fried goat cheese taco  (3.5/5)– It tasted really well but i could nt like it much because of its smell. Goat cheese smell is obvious and liked by many, so it my personal opinion.
  6. Thai Puchka (4/5) – It tasted really good but had strong Ginger sauce traces at end, which can be improved.
  7. Crispy Lotus stem (5/5) – Cripsy and well salted. Tasted good.

C2ollage

I really liked the starter and soup, which brought up my expectations from the main course, in which we had Hakka noodles (veg) meal, which was medium spicy and one of their signature dishes. The quantity of same was good enough for one as i am noodle fan and quality of noodles was perfect. It Spicyness being on higher side added much more taste to it.

Then came Dessert time. Since i have a sweet tooth, i tried so many things here like :

1) Mamagoto Chunky Caramel Sponge Cake with toffee sauce served hot with vanilla ice-cream(3/5) . It was tasty no doubt but extra caramelised sweet, so taste differs for all.

2) Panookie (5/5)- Its a mamgoto signature choco-chip pan cookie served with ice-cream. Its crust is crispy and mouth watering. Winner dish for tonite for me.

3)coconut caramel custard (4/5) – this was served with grilled banana & macaroon dust. was delicious and quantity was good.

C3ollage

Overall I liked the experience here. They successfully followed their moto of ‘to play with food’. Will definitely visit again 🙂
