A ROYAL TREATMENT AT ROYAL CHINA- NEHRU PLACE.

This place is a personal favourite also because being a huge Chinese cuisine fan, no other place satisfies my taste buds the way Royal china does! 

A place with perfect ambience, view of the city, ( at the 16th floor) courteous staff and great drinks. It serves fusion of Chinese & Cantonese cuisine. Its a perfect place for a date, Sunday brunches & Pan- Asian Delicacies.

I visited this place last Sunday and hogged till I dropped! LITERALLY! Had no place for dessert which I truly regret trying since i am always left so full!

They have added a variety of dumplings to their new menu which are prepared with utmost perfection and taste delicious. They also do an unlimited dimsum brunch which I am sure would be A-mazing as well!

Things that I tasted & are recommended to all of you whenever you visit this place & hope it happens soon so you all can thank me for it ūüėõ¬†

  1. Chicken with vegetable dimsums РAbsolutely beautiful looking, tasted even better. Soft, flavoursome & so tempting!

  1. Pan Fried vegetable noodles РTasted smooth, the sauce was unexpectedly brilliant. The noodles were crisp unlike other restaurants that end up serving soggy ones instead of pan fried!

Wendy’s = <3

IMG_6097Wendy’s is an American international fast food restaurant chain founded by Dave Thomas. It is known to be the third largest burger chain in the world. Since Indian food market is expanding gloriously, top leading companies and brands are willing to be a part of this market. One of them is Wendy’s. It has two outlets for now. One at Sohna road, Haryana and other in Gurgaon, Haryana. 

I had gotten an opportunity of visiting Wendy’s and have a complete experience of how it operates; Kitchen, storage, working space and so on. 

We were given a quick introduction of how Wendy’s has been operating over the years and how it works here in India. We then had a look at the menu and the amount of variety they serve is, pretty good! From Bacon to Aloo tikki to Mutton, chicken patties Рyou name it and they have it.. They have a good range of burgers and fries and side dishes also fruittails( mocktails), clearly standing strong from the rest of its competitors. 

BEHIND THE SCENES

Being a foodie it was a dream come true for me to see how everything really works. How the buns are warmed up, how the patties are grilled or fried. The high-tech machines inside,how everything is stored up, the amount of cleanliness to be maintained by the workers and how the space is sustained. ¬†Everything seemed so organised, easy to work with that I felt, soon I could be trained to be a fellow Wendy-er too! ūüėõ Also it feels great to see that the amount of inspection the manager keeps overall, so as to what we eat( guests/ customers) is safe and sanitised.¬†

 

I had a gala time interacting with the staff, helping them in preparing burgers and guess what? I prepared a Chicken burger in their kitchen all by myself ( with a little supervision though :P) and it felt so nice!! 

IMG_0405IMG_0653

Wendy’s should surely be the place to visit next! The ambience all together is beautiful, much better than any other burger joints. They have an excellent menu prepared for all meat and vegetable lovers. They work closley to ensure the hygiene level of the food they serve. All departments are divided precisely. 

TASTING SESSION !! 

I ended up ordering a range of dishes. From double baconator burger to Ultimate mutton, Masala fries, spicy aloo crunch, classic chicken, chicken chilli and cherry cola fruit tails. 

IMG_1093

WHAT STOOD OUT? 

DOUBLE BACONATOR : The quality of bread was superb. Soft and moist, with two chicken patties- tender and juicy, including strips of bacon on it that ended up being the cherry on the top. Overall yummy, a little heavy and surely a go-getter. 

IMG_6275

ULTIMATE MUTTON- This one was my favourite out of all. The patty was so juicy, tender and lip smacking. The mutton was not at all chew. The marination of the patty was done brilliantly and grilled to perfection. Good amount of veggies and pickles inside as a filling. 

MASALA FRIES- OOOH! So spicy! loved them. Warm, crisp and served beautifully in a bowl. Masala tasted yum much- much better than the ones I have tasted in some other joints.

IMG_6266

CHICKEN CHILLI- Prepared out of red beans, a little on the spicier side but since I am ok with spices I totally loved it. Gave this Mexican feel to me, served with rice.. a closer copy to what you can say is ‘rajma chawal’ but with an american touch to it. Beautiful preparation.¬†

IMG_6262

The burgers overall are worth trying, bored of round burgers? Head over to Wendy’s they serve square burgers!! ūüėÄ

Some of the highlights of Wendy’s:

√ė¬†¬†Co working space

√ė¬†¬†Deliver on your table

√ė¬†¬†Unlimited tea and coffee refill

√ė¬†¬†Pricing ‚Äď A little higher than the other burger joints but totally worth it.¬†

√ė¬†¬†Free Wi-Fi

√ė¬†¬†Music ‚Äď they play Coke Studio 90% of the time, mixed with English music sometimes

√ė¬†¬†Square Burgers

√ė¬†¬†Food is served in proper cutlery

√ė¬†¬†They don‚Äôt serve mustard and ketchup with the burger because the burgers are made with sauces, want the customers to relish the taste

√ė¬†¬†Restaurant interiors ¬†

A place to visit and to be enjoyed with loved ones, friends. A good range of food variety, not very expensive. Welcoming staff with great ambience.

DEPOT 29

This place was unexpectedly really good. Had been hearing alot about it from everyone and thought of trying it out. I think its a place that every college going student would love. With friends, to chill for some time and have a great time over some delish waffles!!

Since I went only for a bit I ordered a few things. The staff was courteous and suggested alot of things to try out. 

First came their in house bread with salsa. It was complimentary and it tasted amazing. Crunchy, crackle like. And I think something everyone should keep in their menu and big change from all the heavy Рmeal-ed restaurants in town. 

IMG_0963

Next came the virgin mojito that was perfect. They nailed it. 

IMG_0964

We then ordered some waffles and fries. The fries were served beautiful, their presentation no doubt is too cool. With small little beakers of mayo and sauce. Fries were crisp, warm and a favourite.

IMG_0988

 Last we ordered was the chocolate and wild-berry waffle . It was recommended my d staff and woah. This was delicious. Im glad I asked them cause I was on cloud 9. They really know how to cook goood waffles. This ones a must try if you are a waffle lover and also they again nailed the presentation.

IMG_0969IMG_0982

All in all a place you all should visit to just relax and enjoy. I’ll be visiting soon again to try out the rest of the things.
