Our best pick

Pizza
Pizza Primevera
Farmhouse Pizza
Pizza Primevera ( INR. 650+ taxes)

Being a true lover of Italian cuisine I could not resist myself from ordering pizza after looking at the pizza section on the menu. They serve variety of thin crust pizza with different toppings. You can always request to get customized topping for as customer satisfaction is their priority.

We ordered pizza primevera, which has a thin crust base loaded with a selection of vegetables. Fermented all-purpose flour is stretched and slathered with marinara sauce made with premium quality tomatoes and herbs. A generous helping of fresh mozerella cheese is then added over the sauce. Stretched dough is finally topped with bell peppers, mushrooms, olive, onions and jalapenos which adds color to the classic tomato sauce and cheese combination. It is the baked in a pre-heated oven until cheese melts and base becomes crisp.

Stringy and gooey cheese holds the vegetables together and streches upon biting into the pizza. Pizza seasoning and red chilli flakes are served on the side so that you can add same as per your liking.

Fresh vegetables as topping on the pizza makes up for all the junk food indulgence. On the side, we opted for the regular diet soda. Although, a variety of refreshing drinks are available to choose from. They also serve alcoholic drinks and you may order the same if age permits.

Our experience at this place was amazing. Delicious food and heart-warming hospitality is all what we crave for and this is one of those place where you can experience it. If you are travelling anywhere near East Delhi, then this place definitely deserves a visit!

Holiday Inn, Buffet dinner

Holiday Inn , is a 5 star property located in Delhi,Mayur Vihar. It has the facility of luxurious suites, swimming pool, spa-salon, restaurants and all the other basic amenities which a 5 star property should have.

I love having gourmet dining experiences and recently I visited Cafe on 3, the casual dining restaurant by Holiday Inn.

Melon skewers for appetizer

Tiny spheres of ripe water melon, skewered with fresh mozzarella cheese are dipped in honey , lemon and olive oil dressing which adds flavours to this delicate dish in right amount.

Soul of this recipe is it’s simplicity. All you want to taste is the sweetness of melon and freshness of cheese when you take a bite. Dressing just helps to combine the flavours and enhance the aroma.

As soon as you take a bite into it , you can feel the water melon juices mixing with stringy mozerella which almost feels like nature’s candy.

Vegan Sushi

Sushi is a very popular east asian delicacy which is traditionally made with seafood. Most of the people believe that sushi can only taste good if it is made the traditional way. Vegan Sushi served here totally changed my perception. It was vegan and it was delicious!

Vegan version of Sushi is made with choice of vegetables wrapped in Japanese/sushi rice rolls and topped with nori sheets. Vegetables adds the flavour and color, sushi rice adds the body and texture and nori sheets adds the crunch. It is best served with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger. These have sweet and sour flavours with a pungent after taste. Some vegan sushi varieties which are very popular are:

  • Nasu Nigiri
  • Avocado Nigiri
  • Kappa Maki
  • Shinko Maki/ Takuan Maki
  • Kampyo Maki
  • Ume, Cucumber Shiso Makizushi

I prefer Kappa Maki and Avocado Nigri. I also had some thepla and mirch achar which is a gujarati dish (you can see that in my plate) because I could not stop myself from trying all the delicious food which was right in front of me. I know thepla with Sushi is a weird combo, but trust me you need to try it all when you are a food lover. (wink)

I was so full after having this, that I decided to head over desserts section.

Pastries and tarts

I have a special desire to try all the western style desserts. Dessert section was filled with variety of pastries, pies and tarts. All in different vibrant colors were super welcoming to eyes. Some were topped with red cherries, some with green kiwi, and others with chocolate, caramel and banana. This beautiful site would make any one drool over these desserts.

The first dessert I had was banana caramel cake slice. Soft vanilla cake slices were topped with caramel sauce and thin banana slices. Cake was as soft as an airy sponge is. Same was with the mango pastry. Super soft vanilla cake loaded with whipped cream and fresh mango slices can take anyone to heaven at the very first bite.

Mini Rajbhog is something from the Indian desserts section but I have a special place in my heart for it. This is my mother’s favourite dessert and I am having this since my childhood days.

My experience at this place was very good. Food was delicious and customer service is top notch. This is a 24 hours open restaurant and you may visit any time but I would recommend going at night because vibe is quite special at that time. Sitting beside the pool option is available as well, and if the weather is good you should definitely go for it. Terrace pool is right next to this restaurant and you get a view of it while enjoy delicious meal.

Dining Experience at Singh Sahib, The Eros Hotel

The Eros Hotel, is a 5 star property located in South Delhi, Nehru Place. It has the facility of luxurious suites, swimming pool, spa-salon, restaurants and all the other basic amenities which a 5 star property should have.

I love having gourmet dining experiences and recently I visited Singh Sahib, the fine dining restaurant by The Eros Hotel.

We ordered Chilli Cheese Naan , Khushk Bhuna Jeera Aloo, Bhindi Do Pyaza , Dal Makhani, Palak Paneer.
Chilli Cheese Naan was the main highlight of dinner. Chilli Cheese Naan is not your regular naan. It is crispy, buttery and cheesy! Studded with green chillies, coriander leaves and Nigella seeds, they not only look gorgeous but tastes like heaven as well. As soon as you bite into them, it bursts in your mouth like a cheese bomb leaving you mesmerized.

Chilli Cheese Naan studded with fresh green chillies

To pair this amazing fusion bread we ordered a bunch of North Indian Curries which were equally good. Palak was fresh and paneer was silky. This curry had melt in mouth texture. Khushk Bhuna Jeera Aloo was spicy, perfectly cooked potato dices were coated in toasted cumin seeds, flavoured with green chillies, coriander and medley of spices. Bhindi do Pyaza was prepared with fresh okra and onions. Onions adds the mellow sweetness to the dish which compliments well with the spicy okra.

Indian Curries

Speciality of this place is that you can enjoy live ghazals while enjoying your food. Also, they have a live kitchen which is good to look at and you can also see how your food is prepared.

The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel, Birthday 2019

The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel is a 5 star property situated in East Delhi. It is the perfect option if you are looking for a staycation in New Delhi. You can book a room for you on weekend to pamper yourself on a special occasion or whenever you want, and that is what I and my family did last year on my birthday.

It is my birthday today and we are in lockdown. I am looking at the photos from my birthday last year and cherishing those fun moments.

We checked in our room around 12 a.m. and had lunch after sometime at cafe knosh.

Price – 950 rs + taxes

Cafe Knosh at – The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel serves the best wood-fired pizzas. My favourite one is the capricciossa pizza which is topped with exotic mushrooms , fresh mozzarella , olives and artichoke hearts.
Pizza crust is crunchy and vegetables are fresh. I can feel the burst of flavours in my mouth just by looking at this picture. Pizza is my comfort food and what else could be the best thing to order for lunch on my birthday?

Olive Rolls Served Complimentary

The things I like the most about the gourmet experiences is the complimentary goodies you get with your main order. Who doesn’t like complimentary stuff after all?

Before serving the pizza they served warm, fluffy and delicious olive rolls. They were super soft from inside and crunchy from outside, topped with big chunks of black olives which added both flavour and aroma to it. We devoured it with some salted butter.

After having lunch we took some rest in our room before taking a dip in the swimming pool. In the scorching heat of May taking a dip in chilled water is the next best thing you can do after having a gourmet meal at a 5 star restaurant.

In the night after having north indian curries and breads for dinner , we were served my customized birthday cake which we booked a day before.

I must mention this cake in my blog as it was my birthday cake which I am definitely missing this year. It was a dark chocolate cake. Soft chocolate cake was generously layered with chocolate ganache. Topping of freshly whipped cream balances out the bitterness of dark chocolate making it a perfect dessert.

I am definitely looking forward to celebrate my birthday there after the lockdown ends. Although it won’t be that special as it would have been if celebrated today but it will still make me happy.
