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 !

The skin is immediately protected against pollutants, and they cannot enter the pores any longer. It also creates an invisible matrix of vitamins and essential nutrients that fight against skin ageing and soothe the skin, giving it a unique “soft touch”

For Sake of Love | Review

Start of new year and love of month Feb flows in soon. I started it my new resolution to read books and engage myself to learn new emotions. Love is not my type, so thot to try a romantic novel for my resolution. I choose to start with 2018 new book, “For the Sake of Love” by Anamika Mishra. Since she is from my hometown Kanpur, I preferred reading her thoughts.

The book talks about Love and being loyal to it. Author has well expediated the meaning of being in Love. Now a day’s people do everything in exchange of benefits, but Love is an emotion to feel and flow with no benefit strategies. This book narrates a heart touching love story of a David and Jasmine who stayed in Shimla. The story flows in present and past both, with perfect connection with reader. No ambiguity in writing which again makes it a good read, with its simplicity.

About the Author:

Her debut novel Too hard to handle was released in Sept 2013. This is her 3rd novel and must say , her writing has improved to large extent. She understands her readers well and writes the plot which keeps you attached to book, and wait for climax.She is also a blogger and occasionally delivers motivational talks. Writing is her first passion.

Review About this book-

For me, Love is a commitment to live for & by of someone, who may be yours, but still you have trust & be loyal to it with nothing in exchange. Falling in love is easy but being in love whole life with the same person is something which not everyone is capable off.

Book started with amazing and simple love letters, which every1 can relate to and have a smile on their face. Book cover shows a couple sitting on a bench, which plays a major role in story and is connected to their symbol of love. I completely rejoiced the book.

Book Title: For the sake of love
Author: Anamika Mishra
Format: Paper Back
Publishing Date: 17 Nov 2017
Printed Price: INR 100
No.of pages : 184
Genre: Romance

Book Cover :
The book cover is simple yet colorful. The image of a happy couple with some sweet decor around gives a soothing feeling. It is an amazing roller coaster story which is a mixture of friendship, love, trust, sacrifice, and life.
Plot:  Story revolves around many characters who are linked to each other in an important way. It’s a fictional piece of work with genre of love & romance. This starts with love letters written by David for Jasmine, his childhood love. Story keeps on flowing with the letters in different years and how Twisha/Booby/Alex help them to complete their love story. Story is narrated by Twisha & she is main character in story. The end of one is beginning of other and this leads to Connection between Twisha & Alex. Plot is very interesting and keep readers engaged. Its neither too slow or fast , so well paced.

Read the book to know more !! Stay tuned.
Final Verdict :

Characters: 4.5/5
Plot: 5/5
Narration: 5/5
Vocab : 4.5/5

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.

20180117_190145

The cafe is filled with travel & food related books which again you can read and enjoy with your food.The cafe has focused on every minute detail to keep its customer engaged. 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.

Their constant efforts to provide customers the best & at the sametime contributing towards saving our ecosystem makes its products , much in demand.

It doesnt encourages the practices, that may harm the user or the environment.So its Eco-friendly with its product development too. It contains no petroleum based ingredients, sulfates or parabens. It’s pure & natural with no synthetic preservatives.

These products are certified by Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). The certification ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards, minimizing the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production starting from materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff.

By opting for this, one can reduce his/her carbon footprint as there are chemicals or petroleum products are involved which relatively have a higher carbon footprint when compared to organic alternatives.

Store: Store in cool & dry place.

DSC_1738

Packaging:

It comes in a small cute tub like jar with screw open lid which shuts tightly and prevents any spillage.

My take on it :

The gel is pale green in color and has refreshing fragrance. Its easy to use as it has big opening.Spreads very easily and gets completely absorbed by the skin with a little massage (i prefer circular motion). Should be usually applied during the night time before going to bed, as it helps skin to rejuvenate & show effects sooner.It doesn’t sting or irritate my skin, but rather it has a cooling effect.She has been using this gel since quite a while now, its really good

Will rate it 4/5, and definately buy it next time !!

Thanks for reading. Do leave your valuable comments !! Take care

 

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 🙂
