Whatever be the occasion – a romantic dinner, a celebration, Kid’s Birthday Party, or a corporate event, what people remember for sure is FOOD! While everyone in the family has different preferences and choices, where most of us get stuck is how do we manage getting multiple dishes from multiple places! Recently, Team ChicLifeByte got to know about FoodCloud, an online portal that connects foodies with home chefs and caterers across Delhi-NCR. What we loved was that we had the option of choosing between 120+ chefs, 3000+ dishes and 10,000+ meals…wow! Isn’t that amazing??? It is the best place for all of us to find and order delicious home-cooked food made with love! On the platform, you can choose from a variety of cuisines and menus and have many mouthwatering treats delivered to your doorstep!
The Joint Cafe, situated in the happening location of Galleria market, Gurgaon is probably one of the best breakfast options not just in Gurgaon but the entire NCR. This pint sized cafe is tucked away in a sleepy corner of the Galleria market but locating it is hardly a tough task. As mentioned, JC is not huge and has seating only for 12-15 people, on weekends this place tends to get crowded pretty fast so you’re better off heading there as early as possible (or plan for a few minutes wait). The Joint cafe offers a wide range of cuisines in breakfast: American, Italian, French and Indian. “The Joint Cafe is just 2.5 year old” says Vikrant Singh Mathur, our energetic host of the evening & the founder of The Joint Cafe.
Jewelry has the power to be this one little thing that can make you feel unique!
Life is too short to wear boring Jewelry!
If this what your mind is also echoing, you have reached the right page…and we will take you to the right place…and the place is what we discovered at various time intervals…no, its not a Bollywood movie but a reality! I met Kartik Nayyar from OSR Jewellers at JMC Fest years back and absolutely loved what was on display. The collection from what I remember at that point of time was something that appealed to the youth…obviously we were at a college ground! I again bumped into him at Select Citywalk’s Flea Market and was absolutely thrilled with what I saw…the collection was contemporary and sophisticated but what I saw recently was what I was absolutely mesmerized by! While passing time at Lajpat Nagar 1 market…where I was to get my car fixed…I saw a board which said OSR…and my mind started boggling and I immediately made my entry to the shop and saw an amazing collection of earrings, bracelets, bangles. Neckpieces…I can go on and on and on. The wide array of products comprised of traditional polki jewellery with a hint of western trend, something that can be worn by all ages across different occasions….variety being the key !!! With NO LEAD OR NICKEL used in the manufacturing process, plating does not tarnish regardless of sweat, perfumes etc.
Guppy by ai, the contemporary Japanese bar and kitchen is located at the Lodhi Market, New Delhi. The ambiance of the restaurant is quirky, vibrant and eye catching. Every element has been carefully designed with original custom fabrication by artists and vendors from around India. It has a live sushi counter and a bar overlooking a delightful courtyard. The area also boasts of two specially sculpted metal lion fish lights and Japanese Kokeshi dolls, metal stacked tiffin boxes, vintage cameras and more such Japanese stuff picked from antique shops.
Dresses Dresses Dresses, can we ever have enough of them? It’s difficult to get into our denims in the scorching heat and the best part is that they even pass off as office wear obviously they should not be over the top, after all gone are the days when we used to work in formals-clad in shirt and trousers!
Who is the most important person at an event…be it in a wedding, a birthday party or any other special occasion…yes, it’s the host….but am talking about the person who is more important than the host…I am not kidding or pulling your leg…am sure you have hints to what I am talking about. Yessssss, the photographer and we did spot a gem which we used for one of the initial outfit posts that Team ChicLifeByte did. So hold your breath and make your calendar for the upcoming events as I am sure you will contact this one to have dates blocked.
A super cool eatery in a niche area, 100% Rock is on the third floor of Ambience mall, Vasant Kunj. Following the route boards, we enter this dark eatery with amazing green and orange lit wooden interiors with, as the name says, 100 percent rock music and 200 percent life. If you are a classic rock music lover, this is your place, my friend!
Entering this place you can spot an open bar, a wooden interior setting and a movie memorabilia, which was an added sight and quite different from other places. Up goes a wooden flight of stairs taking you to their alfresco seating area which is a beautiful set up too. Terrace garden with uniform setting of the seating arrangement. There are huge mist fans and desert coolers to beat the heat. Apart from the open area seating, they also have a separate seating lounge kind of an area for bigger groups to have a get together, which has a huge single table and 10-12 chairs and a separate cooling system. Watching at the moon shining; sitting on a chair on the grass and sipping your favourite drink while being easy on the pocket, what more can one ask for.
Mumbai is all about sea, sand, beaches, drives, food, Bollywood and has been on the travel hitlist for the maximum times…though, for work but work hours are limited to the day time and we have the evening is free to explore the land (most of the times) . From eating at Bademiya to shopping at Colaba to taking a trip to Chowpatty to meeting our bollywood friends…the land of dreams has given the brightest memories to me. From brand launches to fashion weeks, I have loved each minute I have stayed there… Juhu Beach, Marine Drive, Ferry Ride, Gateway of India…the list is endless.
National Highway 44 (NH44) as the name loudly announces the theme of the restaurant is to actually deliver the feel of ‘Highway Dhabas’. NH44, a PAN Indian diner has finally opened its gates in the heart of Rajouri Garden for food connoisseurs to experience a wholesome culinary voyage. A brainchild of OTB Khan Market Owners & Businessmen, Udit Bagga & Udit Bhasin, the restaurant draws inspiration from India’s longest highway and offers authentic flavors that are unique to each state touched by the highway.
