Review “The Nest”

Before mentioning anything about this place, I would really love to take the liberty and very much press on the very fact that this is most certainly a place that no foodie or a gourmand should miss as it is a fusion of impeccable ambiance with variance infused with flavors of the night on the palate.

It’s located at Qutub Gold Course @ Lado Sarai, New Delhi near Saket and the commute is pretty ergonomical even if the admirer is coming from Gurgaon. Primarily the factor to be kept into consideration was the venue is ample parking space and no reason to bother for safety, secondly the entrance might look subtle and sweetly simply but the reality steps into the scenario as and when we stepped inside the restaurant.

The place is divided or  rather I should prefer saying compartmentalized into 3 different sections, which are the outdoor sitting, water front section and the glass house section and its even more adorable to adjudge that lest it is already taken into 3 different seating accommodation, the venue also offers more space for the customers to actually grab their leisure on the 1st floor or even juxtapose to the Glass House section which inculcates a huge range of spacious accommodation for an ample amount of client-age in one go.

Every section has its own beautification with sublime touch of perfection, regardless of mentioning that the place has been refurbished almost thrice or four times in its past credentials this is the latest and most sophisticated avatar of this venue after renovation. The glass house comes with an outer view with greenery and nature while  having very comfortable seating couches, turning to the water front it is open sitting arena where the customer sits within/between the nature and enjoys the artificial and marvelously done sprinklers in-built table which are not only innovative but appealing to  almost every eye that catches the view of it and lastly the outdoor or the 1st floor sitting is resembling the ground floor but if one opts to sit outside in the lounge then one can enjoy the top view of the greenish texture and the artificial beauty of the place. Adjacent to the glass house is a small counter which is meant to serve Sheesha (Bong-tails) and that to most exotic flavors with most eccentric and interesting designs.

When mostly the entire place is depicting luxury from every corner the Live Bar on both floors and the DJ console corner on ground floor grooves in a little zing to the ambiance and sparkles up the invigorating effect to an all new level, lively as it sounds, rambunctious as it gets.

The waterfront also has the live Pasta and pizzeria section and the ground floor has the live sushi counter which completely flames up the venue inside out in most bedazzled manner possible. The 1st floor sitting got an extra flavor of sitting while reaching out to customers and giving them an extra space to grab and enjoy every second spent there.

A little sneak into this maverick establishment;

After capturing some very lively glimpse of this venue it was time to duel the real deal, food tasting session began and it was ineffable in every manner as it was so beautifully done that I actually ran out of words whilst sitting there itself and relishing the delectable gourmet, while we ordered Chocolate shake, The Nest special mocktail, Zingy orange mocktail, Hunan Salt & Pepper broccoli, Bangkok Spring Rolls, Rigatoni with Parmesan cheese pasta & Aglio olio Pepperenchino Spaghetti pasta, Cherry tomato with mozzarella basil and Parmesan pizza and also asparagus artichoke goat cheese and Parmesan truffle pizza. Also the delicious Mediterranean sandwich, Veg assorted bakchoy, Noodles with black hot garlic sauce and veggies and finally the desserts came as an utmost surprise as we were treated with Red Velvet and chocolate truffle pastry. Here is a little glimpse of our food tasting session, it was unbelievable;

Restaurant Review-IC’s Hotel, Jamia

“Never Judge A Book By Its Cover” a very famous saying that sometimes really holds true in practical aspects of life. I recently went to this eatery called IC’s Hotel and no other phrase can describe this place better. It’s a small hotel situated in the hustling bustling street of Jamia Nagar and may be just because of the location and the surroundings you will end up giving it a skip, but I assure you, once you open the door and enter the property, you will be very pleasantly surprised. Its chic, classy and very appropriate to take the entire family out for relishing a authentic mughlai cuisine. There is no dirth of outlets/restaurants serving authentic Mughlai Cuisine in Jamia, but there are not many places where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the meals with entire family, most other restaurants don’t have appropriate sitting space and environment, but this place is definitely different.

Review: Bong Appetite

Being a Bengali and staying in Delhi, it’s rare that I get to eat quality authentic Bengali food when dining out. So it was a wonderful surprise for us when we dined at Bong Appetite at Qutub Institutional Area, Delhi.

The décor of the restaurant is pretty good and has a very café like feel to it. The owner himself manages the kitchen and runs the place with great passion and enthusiasm.

Coming onto the food, we went by the owner’s recommendation and were simply wowed by the delectable food present in front of us. The Bengali cuisine is a little on the sweeter side, and perhaps the reason of our sweet voice 🙂

First was Crab Malai Curry paired with steamed rice, superb in presentation and wonderful in taste. The crab was wonderfully cooked, and the feeling of cracking open the shell to be able to eat the tender flesh was amazing. The steamed rice went well with the malai curry.

Golda Chingri Paturi came in next, which was king prawns marinated with turmeric paste, wrapped in banana leaf and steamed. Too good, and made me nostalgic, reminding me of the wonderful food of Kolkata.

These 2 amazing dishes were followed by vegetarian fare – Potoler Dolma with Chena Stuffing which was pointed gourd (parwal in hindi), Allor Dum and Chollar Dal. I personally would never think of ordering parwal when dining out, but this dish was just too good! You’ll be missing something in life if you haven’t had this dish. Allor Dum was a traditional Bengali Dum Aalu, with mildly sweet gravy and tasted perfect and Chollar Dal is Channa Dal. All these were presented with Luchi (Poori) & Kochuri (Grean Peas stuffed kachori) and I loved every bite of it.

Mutton Rezala paired with Kolkata Laccha Paratha came in next and disappeared within minutes of coming onto the table. The paratha was crispy and flaky and the mutton – pure bliss!

Completely filled with the amazing food spread presented in front of us, we couldn’t think of taking another bite, but when the chef presented his signature desserts – Mango Patishapta and Nolen Gur Ice-Cream, we couldn’t control ourselves. Bengalis are crazy after nolen gur, and we get it during a very limited time period. On asking with the chef, he told us that he had made a huge batch of nolen gur which would definitely last for some time – so my advice to you all, go ahead and grab a plate of this wonderful ice-cream before the stocks run out!

All in all, it was a wonderful dining experience; the Bengali spread was wonderful and transported me to the by-lanes of Kolkata. The best part of the food was the hint of sweetness in all food items, but never overpowering it – which generally happens in many places. A place definitely not to be missed!

Review “Audi Garage party”

Well, one of the most reputed and also one of the leading German automobile brand had a very eccentric thought of making the people be acquainted about their product and most promisingly about their services and hospitality.

And with due pleasure it was a delight to experience as to how this German marvel works as the machines manufactured and running on road are evidentially the live proof of their devoted dedication and excellence with pure perfection.

1st was a tiny glimpse of how exactly a car is bought into the garage for repair or services, then the new Audi A3, was explained by exemplifying different parts and different modes of techniques and renditions being executed onto every car and the level of time and energy given to every car as per the priority list substantiates so.

The machine was properly explained with every diminutive detail as, from firmness of break pads to the right amount of coolent and engine oil consistency, it was an imperative part to know that how productively and unbelievably the mechanics of Audi knows every car like their own body. the knowledge they possessed was unimaginable.

Further we were taken into the garage where all the repair work is done, and a tour  of the entire garage was given, by explaining the entirety of Audi’s Modus Operandi regarding there cars and the respective services.

Then came the 3 section part, where the break pads, suspension and alignment which is the balancing is tested, and each of  this test of thorough and without any discrepancies as taking measures of 100% safety and precautions at every step and for  future convenience for the customer and for the dealer as well.

All these factors are tested on a particular machine that explains the numerically tested values  and that what  does the car lacks at that preset moment. It was really amazing to adjudge all that in one go. Eventually we came  to the section of spare parts and then the legendary engine was seen, progressively I adjudged the process of painting the Audi machines and then finally the repair shop with all the body repair is done, it was not only great but an automobile enthusiast like me, it was divine  to  see all of this at one go all together and when all this was not enough the fun was doubled as they had a little Q&A trivia round which was pretty interesting.

In totality all I can say is that I enjoyed every second as it wasn’t really a party more like an acknowledging tour of the automobile giant, yet it was fruitful for  me to visit here and relish every second of it thoroughly.

Here are some of the pics for the mentioned tour:
