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 😛 

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

  1. Frilly prawn balls – OMG!! Absolutely hands down the best dish so far! Loved the crispness, the flavours, the crunch and the softness of the prawn inside. Deep fried and served hot. You would absolutely go bonkers trying this one out! A must try if you are a sea-food lover!

  1. Prawns in chilli oil & spring onions- Succulent, soft, marinated and prepared with right amount of spice. Extra gravy on the side to be used with fried rice or noodles. #yummy.

  1. Flaming fish in superior sauce – This is one of their best sellers and is a must try. Served in chicken & prawn as well. This dish is placed on the table, then lit with fire ; to give a visual delight. It tastes incredible. Soft as cotton and the sauce so perfect that it works wonders.

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

A total delight for the eyes and tastebuds. You would love the food served here & literally drool over it. Classy and fine dining at its best!

‘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 😀 

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.. 

FOR NOW LET THE PHOTOGRAPHS TALK 😀

 

 YOU CAN FIND THEM IN GURGAON AND GK.

;D

STAY POSITIVE, DREAM BIG ❤

HAPPY HAKKA :D

The name really suits what they are serving!! “Happy Hakka” !! 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 “HAPPY”.

#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

These hard working people behind such a lovely place and food 😀
IMG_0423
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.
IMG_0425
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
