Restaurant Review: Cafe Immigrant, Connaught Place

Food August 30, 2015

This little café called Cafe Immigrant is located amongst the most busiest places in New Delhi, Connaught place. This cafe is basically made around the concept of diversity, which is in abundance here in the Indian capital and showcases many dishes from various Indian states like Maharashtra, Punjab and Kerala and other countries like Italy, Lebanon & Thailand. This restaurant celebrates the fact that Delhi has always been influenced by migrants from all over the world and our own country. I could totally see that in their menu- butter chicken with pizza, risotto and khichdi, once I got my hands onto the menu I did know that tonight was going to be one parade of some fascinating food.  I was greeted by the manager Mr. Sushil & the Assistant manager Mr. Ajay. Moving onto what I ordered off their menu, the manager of the restaurant Mr. Sushil was really devoted and helpful to me with helping me order the food and suggesting whatever he thought was a must try.

Restaurant Review: Maquina, Hauz Khas Village

Food August 28, 2015

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.

Restaurant Review: Days of the Raj, Aurobindo Marg

Food August 25, 2015

Days of the Raj is located amongst the hustle bustle of the Aurobindo Marg. I was really looking forward to a phenomenal evening with a lot of alluring & lip smacking food and that’s what I got. The restaurant is very clean and elegant and had something about it that helped me relate it to the days of the raj with the ambience being very positive & aesthetically pleasing. They have live Indian music playing band on all weekdays except Monday and Tuesday. The restaurant was very brightly done up with big chandeliers & ceiling lamps, which gave a touch of the British Raj to this beautifully done up restaurant. Soon, I was greeted by Mr Chandrabhan, Sr. Captain & Mr. Mohinder, manager of the restaurant. They both were extremely polite & helped me to choose the dishes. The menu has a vast range of food with influence from the Indian and the Anglo-Indian cuisine.
