One afternoon Team ChicLifeByte stepped into the beautiful Pa Pa Ya, located at Select Citywalk in Delhi to grab the taste of their amazing Asian cuisine. Pa Pa Ya is known to present Asian food & drinks with a twist with cutting edge cooking techniques such as molecular gastronomy and mixology. The restaurant which was loved in Mumbai finally arrived in Delhi in December’16 and is also impressing the Delhiites with the amazing presentation and flavours. The menu of the Modern Asian bistro & tapas bar boasts of a wide array of dimsums as well as sushi.
Remember, Team ChicLifeByte told you about Select CITYWALK being a foodie’s paradise in addition to being a shopping paradise! If you missed reading the post, you can read it here. After all, it has the perfect place to dine in, whatever be the occasion. From food, grocery & confectionary to cafes and fine dining restaurants, there are infinite choices to choose from! Plus, the staff here doesn’t treat you as customers but guests. Let me tell you about my dining experience which at my last two visits to the shopping center. A café and a fine dining restaurant, is what I tried and hitherto encapsulated is my entire experience:
Who doesn’t like to go for a shopping spree? It would be any girl’s dream to spend a day at a premium shopping center like Select CITYWALK amongst the national and international brands it offers. For me, my retail therapy usually ends with food therapy and while we go mad selecting the right dress or the right attire for an upcoming event or occasion, it is important to get the right fuel for your body! And that’s when we head to the superior restaurants here. Select CITYWALK gives us a choice between Confectionary, Cafes and Fine Dining restaurants which I think is great because we always have either a little hunger and do not want something too heavy while at times we are completely done with our shopping hauls and want a nice relaxing comfortable meal at a fine dining restaurant. So, lets see what the place holds for us. The food selection is divided in 3 heads:
Yum Yum Cha created quite a rage when it opened in Saket and this time I visited their recently opened Cyberhub outlet. One look around you notice the outlet is themed after the sea– with elements like paper umbrellas, boats, slippers, fish and all the lovely sea creatures, palm trees and the beach with some beautiful origami paintings- a very neatly & nicely organized place with the outside verandah done with the most colourful blend & usage of origami. It is a place full of beautiful origami, colourful, bright & unique with beautiful caricatures of dimsums & sushis in the menu. I was all geared for the Pan Asian Bistro experience of Yum Yum Cha.
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.
This time when we stepped into PVR Director’s Cut at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, Delhi to catch a movie, our outing did not end only till the movie but continued till the dining destination of PVR Cinemas….No, I am not talking about the regular candy bar but Simply Sushi and Mistral which offer scrumptious multi-cuisine options from Japanese to Indian to Italian to European. We chose to sit alongside the cosy fireplace which added a warm touch to our dining.
Gadre Premium Seafood and Vikas Khanna launched Crabsticks for the first time in India at Cafe Public Connection, Connaught Place recently. Gadre Marine Export Pvt Ltd signed India’s Star Chef Vikas Khanna as Brand Ambassador for Gadre Marine Export Pvt Ltd, the largest Surimi producer in India and the third largest in the world.
Crabsticks are created from a unique pasta called Surimi, which is primarily made from the best parts of the fish. They are low in calories and fat, which makes it ideal if you’re on a weight-loss programme. Since crab sticks are cooked and pasteurized during the process, they are ready to eat product and can be cooked too.
You know ChicLifeByte’s love for Japanese food by the review at En. When we got to know about Sushi Junction we were quite excited. Who doesn’t love Authentic Premium Sushi delivered at their Door Step, but we were disappointed to know they cater only to Gurgaon…For us South Delhiites, going to Gurgaon is always a dreadful ride but we were really happy to know that Sushi Junction can make special arrangements for delivery to South Delhi.
KOA – Kitchens of Asia offers much more as compared to what their name suggests. In fact they offer you with a range of gourmet dishes that encompasses the whole of Asia but served with a unique fashion that will surely mesmerize you. Adorned with a superb ambience and excellent service, it will surely be a gastronomic delight for you.
With Swedish Mafia House, Ellie Goulding, Calvin Harris playing in the backdrop one can easily guess the royalty of this place. The ambience bears the same touch of elegance as the food. The whole place is very well decorated and the sitting arrangements are also very comfortable and spacious. Outside seating is also available.
Globe Trotting is a passion but when you get to do Globe Trotting for food, its fun! So, after a review of Peru food at Hyatt Regency Delhi, it was time for some authentic Japanese cuisine. The only taste I have had of Japanese cuisine is “Sushi” but when you get to try them at an Authentic Japanese restaurant, the experience is different.
As I entered En- The Japanese Restaurant located in Mehrauli, it made for a perfect dining place in a haveli set up. Beautiful and peaceful arena, bold red interiors, we looked for a space which had good lightning (obviously to get good pics).
