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.
