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!

DESSERTS : Lost track of the amount of desserts that were part of the menu since there were so many. From red velvet pastry to jalebis to chocolate fudge cake to rasmalai to donuts, churros, fruit cocktail, pudding, swiss roll and so much more! A bit of all and you would be in heaven.

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.

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.

‘BOMB’AYKERY !

The name says it all ‘BOMB’. This quirky little place is a hidden gem and I wonder Why did I not put my hands on these yummylicious beauties before.¬†

With just the first delievery it has become my personal favourite. Its this magical place for all dessert lover. They have this elegant touch to their whole brand. From the packaging to the desserts. All of them taste so good that it Is hard to realise that this is available in Delhi ūüėĬ†

IMG_0604

They have a huge range of desserts and trust me you will face a really hard time choosing what to relish. 

I tasted the Belgian chocolate mousse dome and Hazel Nut Krispy Crunch chocolate pyramid that hands down tasted heavenly. These pretty looking delight was not only appealing for the eyes but the taste was MIND-BLOWING. 

Other things that I tasted apart from the delicious cupcakes and cheesecakes that were presented in such a cute way, they have some other delicious savouries like the CHEESE STICKS. These are something out of the blue. With sesame on it, they tasted the best out of everything. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. 

The brownie and the chocolate chunk cookies were amaze-balls! The were soft, crunchy with the right amount of sweetness. Believe me I ended up making a Brownie cookie shake out of these beauties which ended up tasting like worlds best Milk shake. The macarons that came along were crisp, and light-as-a-feather. And If you are a Macaron lover, Leave everything and run to this place. 

All in all this place is a must visit. Trust me you won’t be disappointed .They have this uniqueness to them and you will see or feel it once you try them. A place that will leave you with a smile on your face..

HAPPY HAKKA :D

The name really suits what they are serving!! ‚ÄúHappy Hakka‚ÄĚ !! This cuisine really makes one happy. Staying in Delhi, a lot of food joints have started opening that are focusing not only on the ambience but also the quality of food.¬†

IMG_0464

Happy Hakka got delivered at home with so much love. You can see with their packaging how much efforts they are taking in making their customers happy and content. 

They serve authentic chinese food. A thing that I have noticed around Delhi is that its really hard to find a good chinese restuarant. I mean there was a time 5-6 years back where we could locate some really good chinese food in affordable prices. Now, the scenario has changed. A lot of them have come up but are unable to maintain the quality or the Indian touch to it. Focusing only on the brand name and forgetting everything is else is something which is a major concern. 

IMG_0449

A few restaurants have started coming up which have started serving some decent and tasty food. One of them is Happy Hakka. The condiments come in small little bottles that looked so adorable along with the cutlery 

WHAT WAS DELIVERED : 

CRUNCHY MUNCHY SPRING ROLLS- They tasted yum. Crisp- crackly skin with tender crisp vegetables on the inside. 

IMG_0484

KHAO SUEY WITH RICE- This tasted DELICIOUS. It had an exceptional taste to it, have not tasted a better one in Delhi. By adding the chilly garlic paste it tasted even better. Perfect meal to order and a must must try. 

IMG_0487

HAKKA NOODLES- You never go wrong when it comes to Hakka noodles. And surely Happy Hakka did not. They had that smokey flavour in them which made it and out fro the rest. 

IMG_0486

CHILLI CHICKEN BITES- My personal favourite out of lot. It was a dry dish with chunks of chicken pieces. so soft, tender, juicy and full of flavour and spicy. *mouth waters*

IMG_0480

SUI MUI CHICKEN- This was in the form of momos that were delicious. Became a little soggy but I guess thats because of the delivery

IMG_0483

HAPPY HOT GARLIC-  This was spicy, quantity was good, had chunky pieces of well cooked vegetables. Flavoursome and finger licking good. 

IMG_0491

There delivery is fast, food is pipping hot when it reaches home. Everything that I tasted was YUMMY. Their portions are decent enough. They take a lot of effort to make their customers ‚ÄúHAPPY‚ÄĚ.
