Food travel Day1- Eateries at Sector 14 gurgaon..are you visiting next ?

Sector 14, Gurgaon is most famous and old market of Gurugram (previously called Gurgaon). Its still a busy market with so many options of shopping starting from basic family needs to expensive wedding shops to electronics to brands like Yepme, Footin and many more.

Its surrounded by residential areas and hence has a big parking issue. But still, i can visit this place anytime around the corner for its food options. So read below my best eatery options here:

  1.  Sethi Sweets: Its a 15 yrs old shop located in front of famous Hanuman Mandir, in Sector 14, gurgaon. Its owned by Mr. Ramavatar and currently run by both father and son. They have snack options like Samosa (the best), kachori, jalebi, bread pakore and other namkeens like matthi etc. In sweets they have all sort of like milk cake (delicious), rabri, boondi, rasgulle. I love visiting this shop to have my fav only, Samosa with imli chuttney. Cost is very pocket friendlyBeFunky Collage
  2. South indian store: This is a famous South indian shop located opposite to back side of Hanuman mandir. Its run by a south based person and also running it from last 10 years or so. He accepts Paytm too for payments. He has constructed the 3 shop area, one with seating options and AC in it. Service is very quick and best place to have south indian authentic food like idli, dosa, utthapam, vada. You can try it from morning 7am to evening 10pm. Its a family restaurant, so plz visit it and enjoy 🙂 Every dosa cost lies withing 100 to 120 bucks.  He has also put up a shop in basement, where you can find ingredients like batter, powders, coconut and many other stuff. You can order the food online also from Swiggy.com  BeFunky Collage

Its AmPm cafe time | DLF Galleria

Hello friends..so here i am with my review of the buzz restaurant now a days, AmPM cafe-bar. Its has 2 outlets in north, one in DLF Galleria gurgaon and other in Rajouri Garden Delhi. Its a famous restaurant chain worldwide. Since weekend is the time for lepaking, and i wanted to kill my time with old buddies, thought of visiting this place !!

Its located at 3rd floor back side of DLF Galleria, Gurgaon. Its has capacious space with both indoor and outdoor seating. They have a separate area for live music, which not only adds liveliness to evening but also makes them more relaxing & peaceful. They serve lot of delectable & scrumptious food along with shakes and cocktails. Hence this place is best option to hangout with friends and family both.

We started with the lickables, which are launched newly like Benaras Belle(5/5), which is a thick duo of gulkand and kulfi, flavored with Paan syrup.It was presented with a paan leaf & tasted amazing, so a must try. Next we had Ms. Alphonso(4/5), the most awaited drink of the visit as its a mango season and this had Mangoes flavored with icecream, presented in a luscious way! Next one was thought to be a common Orchard Street (5/5), but it turned out to be toothsome with its tutti fruityyyy flavor.

In food,we tried many dishes like AmPm chaat, Palak patta chat, Daal makhana platter, momos, Paneer tikka platter, keema pao, veggie pizza & tangy tomato pasta. Everything was lip smacking and worth the try. Delicious & authentic to flavors.

Last but not the least, we ended our day with AmPm special shakes like Kitty Katty, Belgian Affair & Magnum Upside down. Last one is the winner of tonight’s food visit !!

Molecule Air bar | Next gen Alehouse

Molecule Air Bar is the next addition to Sector 29 market, which is a hub of theme based restro-pubs. I heard a lot about this place from my friends in the past, so planned to visit it with my friends last weekend. It’s on other side of Sector 29 and located at 2nd floor. It’s a capacious place spread across 2 floors including a terrace. Molecule is taking molecular gastronomy to a whole new level along with a German brewery, with its smoky flames and innovative spectacles.

The ambience here takes you back in time machine to World war 2. The walls are covered with metal guns and other stuff depicted to be used in the war. A big face mask on one side of the wall resembling some cruel superpower, and on other side, glass walls depicting molecular diagrams. Food here is served in a symbolic way like golgapps water served in test tubes, chutneys served in injections. Vintage lights resemble the molecular hexagonal design. Seating varied from high end stools to low based sofa’s to comfortable laid back couches.

When we visited this place, it was jam packed. Evening time this place is full of people, enjoying their beers, foot-tapping on the live music running across the place. Even there is no dance floor, still ample space to enjoy!!

Coming to food, they provide a variety of Indian dishes in fusion to progressive ways. This place has something which cannot go unnoticed. The dishes served are authentic in taste but infused with innovation & creativity of the chef. Must to mention here about their chef, as he himself comes to people for talking to them about their dishes, ask them about feedback!! Food presentation is done keeping in mind the restro theme. Just like they serve Molecular Puckha Shots (5/5), which is their version of Gol gappa’s served with assorted water flavors in test tubes & chutneys in injections. The potato stuffing is served in a mini pressure cooker. Then next we were served chef’s special Dragon Smoked Popcorn (4/5), which were infused with liquid nitrogen, which made it crispy. When we tried to pick and eat, even our fingers felt cold.

This followed by the Air Bread (4/4) which are little pillow resembled crispy breads stuffed with combination of 4 cheese sauces and green chili caviar. They served it with 2 topping variations (Paneer and chicken) . Air is injected into the bread with syringes. Next, we had Ghee Roast Soya Keema & Lachcha Paratha combo (5/5) which had four mini parathas hanging from pegs on a little frame with a small pan full of soya keema served with raddish minced salad and chutneys. It was the WINNER dish for me tonite. Edible coal (3/5) was Smokey, lava ash flavored dish. I didn’t like it much. Chakna Tiffin (4/5) was again their innovative dish of serving corn-kurkure chaat in small packets hanging from little frame with clips. It tasted amazing and a must try. Next, we had Pao bhaji (5/5), Paneer Tikka (3/5), it had 4 flavored tikkas but paneer was not much cooked. We talked to chef about it and gave our feedback too. Last but not the least, we tried their Pizza (4/5), full of cheese and varied toppings. Tasted well.

In mocktails, we had 3 to tango, weirdo & apple cider. All were perfect and authentic to taste. Must try is “3 to tango”.

Last but not the least, we had chef special “Imitations of Ras malai”. Chef himself came to our table with materials to prepare this dessert in front of us. We were delighted to see it happen and also made a small video. Many things he explained us before starting, but yes many are a chef’s secret. I cannot rate this dessert, as it deserves accolade 🙂

Want to relive your college days…yesss !! So visit this college based theme restaurant is Sector 29 , Gurgaon. Its till date my fav & best theme based restaurant , with amazing decor and quite spacious. Sector 29 is the fast growing market of Gurgaon with so many restaurants. Prankster is a colossal single floor restaurant with school based theme.

As I step into the lobby, a large upside down red horse welcomes me glasses on all side. The stairs had an amazing led decoration of upside down images and a notice board just like in school days.An old camera with roll developed at the corner. Inside the restaurant they have varied sections like the Classroom, Library, Chemistry Lab, Canteen, Parking Lot,  Amphitheater, etc. Its also called the Food & Brewery campus of Gurgaon 🙂 . The interiors at Prankster are gracefully done with chemistry lab section having images emblazoned on the walls, beakers set with blooming plants, library setup done with chandelier created out of open books, table lamps set on pile of books and a high definition projector to view media, bunker beds, the amphitheater with the multi level seating & the parking lot with a line up of  Lambretta scooters converted into comfortable seats with backrest with tables settled mid & a jeepsy. The seating is appt to section and very comfortable. Library has chairs on both side of a long table with beautiful lamp shades while the chemistry lab does the same with high stools .Unlikely classroom section has seats joined to tables, taking us back to school memories.

They have a big bar section with

We has our seating inside the classroom which has a blackboard, high definition projector, a multi coloured painting of Einstein and lamp shades made by using big paint brushes. More than anything, Prankster surprises you with its unparalleled innovation serving the “nostalgic progressive cuisine”, connecting the foodies with their nostalgic years memories in modern way.

To start with in Veg, we had Nitro cooked Dahi Bhalla, Papdi (4/5) which is an ice-cream that has the exact flavor of dahi bhalla, believe it or not, its a savory dish. Basically its a bhalla mixed with curd ,chilled icecream balls, flavored with dehydrated tamarind chutney and a -20 degree nitro papri. Authentic being crunchy !!  Pao Bhaji Zinker Burger(5/5) is another innovative dish which was full of pranks & is similar to mumbai vada pao. Its served inside the Rubik’s cube where some of them are empty. It has same authentic & spicy vadapao flavor with chili chutney. Reminds me of my college canteen tikki bun. Next was Bun Cholle(5/5),  which was closed bun with chickpeas inside. It was very soft and full of flavors. In Non veg , we had Tempura Fried Prawns with Podi (5/5)– crispy fried prawns served on a stainless steel ruler diaognally with flowers around. Tender Tandoori Lamb Chops (5/5) which were scrumptious. Very tender, and at end clear bone was visible served with onion lachchas.

Must mention is the pizza (5/5) which had flakky base just like our canteen aloo patties. It was well cooked & full of crunchiness. Toppings had all fresh veggies. Must try dish.

In Main course we had, Compressed Paneer Barrels in Thai Curry (4/5)  which was thai curry having panner rolls. Very soft and authentic.Daal Makhani (4/5) was again full of flavors and creamy texture.Served with butter lachcha paranthas. You feel like binging on the food here !

In dessert we had Jalebi with Saffron Ice Cream (5/5) – Have no words to express this dish. Love it to the core. Jalebi was plated in 3 forms as in  big jalebi circles, papad and pearls (boondi ) all served with the saffron ice cream. Again a must try here ! Another sweet dish was Rose kheer. It was live presented by Chef Harangad, where he used liquid nitrogen to garnish rose flowers and served over in house kheer.

The food was totally par excellence with its creative twist. Prices are pocket friendly and must visit place house/office parties 🙂

They have a diff bar area , family sitting area and buffet section.Punjabi tracks been played on the background.

We started with Tokri Chaat and the Popeye Paaji ki Chaat (5/5). Chaats were lip smacking, fully stuffed and crunchy served in Dahi with chutney, murmure & anaar  toppings. Paneer Barrel Tikka(5/5) – Their own version of the classic Paneer Tikka, having crispy paneer balls soft & juicy from inside, stuffed with dry fuits.
