#NEWINTOWN INSTAA PIZZAA!!!

When the word pizza comes to mind, all you can think about is cheese, toppings and crust! And if I tell you that Delhi has added another gem in its pocket, I am being honest! KEEP READING. 

INSTA PIZZA!! SAY WHAAA? 

This place is a hidden gem located in Kalkaji and Gurgaon. A place with funk, colours and guess what comics! The whole theme about this place is to make you feel at home and deliver you with the best pizzas along with bringing back your childhood memories by keeping a reading stack of The famous ARCHIES comics along with so many others that will just put a smile on your face. 

A YES OR NO TO INSTA PIZZA? 

HANDS DOWN, YES!!  This place offers UNLIMITED TOPPINGS with No extra charge on your pizzas.Which till date no other place offers. YOU can customise it the way you want too! They offer Thick and New-york style crust.The dough is unique and not at all compromised on. They make it in house and cold ferment it for 72 HOURS. WOAH which makes it mouth melting !! :O

This Lasagna was heavenly. Loaded with cheese, meat, tomatoes, zucchini and bechamel this was better than any other lasagna I have tasted in a very long time. Mouth melting and so delicious. This surely won’t stop your hands from digging.

People get very attached to their specific restaurant parlours when it comes to pizza. No one really wants to experiment, but Insta pizza is something you all should really try if staying in New Delhi. This is one of their classics. Amazingly good this garlic, chili and chicken chorizo is a MUST TRY in New york style crust. Hopshophog recommends this. (jalapenos added as extra topping) 
IMG_0424
Now this has been included in my favourite list. I have always been a hot dog fan. This was something which has finally fulfilled my cravings!! THIS IS CALLED THE PIZZA DOG. Rolled in the same dough as Garlic twists with sausage inside accompanied with delicious dip.
IMG_0427
For all you healthy freaks out there. This is what you should order. Finally this concept has been brought to India by Insta pizza. This is MARINARA PIZZA. Pizza without cheese. Alot of people crave pizzas but dislike the cheese or some are allergic to cheese. This is what a pizza without cheese is. with just the classic sauce and confit garlic chilli flakes. Somehow I found this really good too. I think I am becoming a crazzyy fan of this place. 

BEST IS YET TO COME.  

Its a true saying when you read the above line. Especially if you visit this place!!! BEST? Understatement. INSANE is the right word!! And that is ; 

THE MONSTER DEEP DISH PIZZA!! ❤ 

Insta pizza is the only place that serves the classic Chicago style deep dish. First comes a layer of crust. In between comes all the toppings and the cheese. Once thats done its covered with layer of dough. On top of this you’ll find their unique sauce and your asking meat topping!*DROOLS*

This monster deep dish pizza is over 1” thick and weighs about 1Kilo, which comes in two sizes!! Crazy right?! This is really a dream come true. You will not be disappointed when you taste this beast!! ❤

Do not miss out on this place. It is located in Kalkaji and Gurgaon and surely this a place that should top your list. Go and enjoy your scrumptious meal at this beautiful place.

DREAM BIG. XOXO

HOLIDAYING IN DUBAI!

We all love to travel, explore new places, meet new people and also try out new cuisines..

I was in Dubai last month, also my second home. I have lived there for around  years and did my schooling and graduation from there.

The lifestyle of Dubai is unbeatable. It’s like visiting Delhi but a much cleaner and better version. TALLEST TOWER in the world is in this place and trust me Burj Khalifa will make your eyes pop.

A place like home away from home, friendly people, delish food, skyscraper buildings, lights, shopping festivals and belly dancing, DUBAI is THE place to holiday if you wanna explore all of this.

SOME OF THE PLACES THAT ARE A MUST  VISIT :

  • Burj Khalifa  ( 160 story skyscraper & observation deck)
  • Burj Al Arab
  • Dubai Mall
  • Ski Dubai ( Mall of the emirates)
  • Madinat Jumeriah
  • Palm Islands
  • Atlantis
  • Wild Wadi Water park
  • Meena Bazaar ( for some gold buying :P)
  • Miracle Garden
  • Jumeriah Beach

Since I was there few days back I managed to hog alot and gain an extra pound 😦 but who cares? ENJOY!!

Lord of the Drinks in collaboration with HMM! and Delhi_Foodie

Had the best time last week when I got the opportunity to attend one of the fanciest events in town. HMM!- the food and lifestyle experts, organised a success party to honour their 2 years in this  industry at the Lord of Drinks. They are your go-to bloggers when you need to look around for the best restaurants around the world (follow their Instagram handle — for some really good recommendations) image image image

They collaborated with Delhi_foodie, who again are experts in the field of food and have a vast following on Instagram. I actually got invited by them for this event for which I’m very grateful (they’ve got some amazing food pictures from all over Delhi. You have to follow them if ur a pakka delhite like me!) 

The event was super fun. Got to meet fellow bloggers and made a lot of new friends. I lurvvved their LIITs and sangrias. And of course their food. Drums of heaven, Mumbai Vada and Olive Chicken were to die for. See the pictures for yourself! And to top all of this, an eclectic mix of EDM and tabla kept me grooving all the time! Will be spotted here very often now as it’s currently topping my list of ‘good food, drinks and music’ places in Delhi! image image image  image

Watch out for HMM! as they expand in cities like Malaysia, Singapore and (wait for it) Dubai! One stop blog for all the best places to eat in the world. What else does a foodie (like me) need 🙇image

Tea Time Tale Bakery – Gurgaon

Tea time tale delivered these yum-ness at my doorstep today!

image

They are based in Gurgaon. A mother-daughter collab  who specialises in desserts such as jar cakes, cupcakes, tea time cakes and customised according to occasions! 

What was on my doorstep consisted of two cute little jars and a tea time cake. The packaging was simple in a white box with a ribbon bow which went well with the whole theme. It gave sophisticated/elegant look to the goodies. 

After unpacking it I found mouth watering and beautifully crafted blueberry tea cake and heaven filled inside those little jars of strawberry cheesecake & chocolate fudge.

image image

The strawberry cheesecake was out of this world. It was smooth, creamy, just sweet enough with a hint of tartness and a perfect base. I couldnt stop digging into this divine jar 🙈

The chocolate fudge was something I went bonkers for. It was the PERFECT one I have tasted in a longgg time! Sweetness right on point! Just wow.

Blueberry cake was soooo pretty that I had to think twice before digging into it. The detailing, design, the intricacy everything was remarkable. It was so moist from the inside and it literally melted in my mouth. I have visually seen and tasted a lot of home made cakes/desserts, but the amount accuracy of detailing this cake had was F-L-A-W-L-E-S-S. There were I guess two to three shades of blue icing on the cake which looked so lovely and different that it became the key highlight of the whole package. From those tiny little leaves to the small bow on the right hand side of the cake. Everything was just P-E-R-F-E-C-T.

image image image 

A big shoutout to @teatimetale. Im sure I will order from you guys the next time Im in need of cakes or any specific dessert in general. 😀

P.S – my hubby went a little cray cray after eating the strawberry chessecake. He personally feels it is one of the best he has ever tasted. ❤

Follow @teatimetale1 on Instagram and the next time you have a birthday party, baby showers or high tea just contact them. 

                          CIAO PEEPS!!! Love from hopshophog. Dream big. Stay focused. 

XOXO

FESITYFOXDIARIES & LEVIS TIE UP – DELHI

FEISTYFOXDIARIES and LEVIS hosted this event on the 23rd of sep in South ex, part 1, delhi.

  The main idea behind this collaboration was to work with and around

THE NEW LEVI’S® WOMEN’S DENIM COLLECTION FOR FALL 2015

Levis showroom

For the Fall 2015 season, the Levi’s obsessed over the details – from the fit and fabric to finish and style – to create a transformational women’s jean collection. The Levi’s brand global design team identified the key fits and styles that women want, obsessively working to optimize the latest fabric innovations and slimming technologies, creating the perfect fitting jean for each body type. Such innovations include the most advanced stretch and recovery, signature authentic Levi’s details and world-class finishing. – See more at: http://feistyfoxdiaries.blogspot.in/#sthash.rjEKbgPx.dpuf

Feistyfoxdiaries hosted this event with levis for all the fashionistas in town. It was an event only with exclusive invites given my Feistyfoxdiaries. The event was all about Styling & Fashion and also about delicious food & wine!

Chicken tarts    Choco shot with marshmallow      Macaroons :D    Wine & cheese

When I entered the store I saw that it was shut down for public for the respective day and was only open for the bloggers in town. Being the first one to reach at the store , I personally got alot of time to spend  the host herself. She was so grounded & nice to talk too that I think I fell in love with her 😛 and not to forget shes so pretty that you might just keep drooling!!

Feistyfoxdiaries & Me

I was taken around and showed how the event is going to go about. They had selfie booth that could print instant photos ..and like you all know Girls and no selfies? Unbelievable !! And yes I guess everyone just ended up spending most of their time in that small corner in the levis store. And when we finally got tired of those selfies, we shifted to the hair and makeup station.. So basiciallly the whole event was dedicated for styling.

The Levis peeps had kept their new fall collection 2015 infront of us

This new collection was on display for us along with few pieces of tops, jackets and shirts; formal to casual.  We had to style up A LOOK and had to keep in mind on what occasion can that be worn at . This was the highlight of the evening and trust me I had alot of fun. wohooooo

What I chose to wear was a casual black shirt with light blue denims (super skinny) paired up with pearl neckless. This look was perfect for a date night or even if u make sudden plans of clubbing or bar hopping! 🍸👀

Then we headed over to the makeup and hair station where you could do both according to your respective look .

And then finally came the ramp walk for all the fashionistas!!!  And in the end three best dressed winners were declared who received free gift vouchers from Levis.

Taking selfies, posing with the levis board, having finger licking food and dressing up like fashionistas – all in all it was sooo much fun and memorable.

The event ended  on a sweet note by levis handing us over with goodie bags that consisted of a wallet, scarf and a 500 rs off on our next purchase. lalaa 😀 Lucky me cause I was just about to buy a new pair of denims and now I know where to go to 👯

Goodie bag from Levis_in

It was a great experience and something I would love to do it again !! Events like these are a must for upcoming bloggers like us, who are new with this industry and are looking for help and someone to guide us. Stephannie( Feistyfoxdiaries) was a great mentor and a lovely person to talk too .

And guys stay tuned… next post will be about Tea time tales bakery based in Gurgaon !! 😀

Till then Dream big 🙂 stay focused.
