Have you ever fancied being able to dine like royalty? What is the first thing that pops into your mind when I say ‘Dine Like Royals’? Is it lush and rich interiors and gold trimmed china to feast on? Have you ever thought that the term could mean so much more than just materialistic glamour? Well, K3 JW Marriott is amazingly brilliant at proving the same! A feast fit for royalty is what I was showered with when I decided to step into this wonderful paradise! This inspiring concept by the K3 JW Marriott brings together the rich cuisine of Rampur, right from the kitchens of the Nawabs! Having teemed up with 3rd generation cooks from the royal kitchen itself, the 11-day festival is a paradise for anyone and everyone who wants to explore the rich cuisine of Rampur in its most authentic form! Get ready to let your taste buds experience the best food one can be offered and allow yourself to be lulled into a food coma while you are here! Thanks to the beautiful dry spices that the brilliant Rampuri chefs use in their cooking, the food that comes out of their kitchen has an unparalleled brilliance to it! Some of their all time popular dishes have been the Mirchi ka Halwa, Tar Qorma and the Murg Sondha, and that is precisely what I was going to get to indulge in this time! Drinks I started my meal off with the Aam Ras and Rampur Punch and I could not have been happier about the choice I made! The Aam Ras was refreshing and sweet, while the Rampur Punch had a certain spicey undertone to it that was perfectly blended to form one of the best cocktails that I have ever had! Appetisers Ofcourse I had to …

Monkey Bar (Go Bananas!) {Restaurant/Food Review}

February 5, 2014

Food and restaurant reviews are a common thing for any blogger. But it becomes quirky and overwhelming when a venue like Monkey Bar comes in the spotlight. It wasn’t their special menu, nor the concept but the architecture of Monkey Bar that got me interested in checking them out. The outdoor design is quiet artistic and calm, whereas what  lies within is exactly the opposite.  About Monkey Bar  Monkey Bar, India’s first Gastropub brand now joins New Delhi’s skyline with its promise to offer you anything but the usual! Located in the heart of south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj, Monkey Bar, the Indian avatar of the Gastropub, puts its own unique spin on the internationally popular concept. It has the essence of a pub and is backed by excellent food and service, at accessible prices.  Isn’t it cool? A foosball and snooker table to pump up the fun quotient. Their ‘ORGANIC’ menu.  The Drinks at MOBAR  So Gastropub has to have a brilliant cocktail menu + food. I am being very honest here, but all the time I spent there trying their menu out, I was not disappointed even once! Their drinks are not the ordinary Mojitos/Martinis and Beer Pints, but much more than that, infused with the desi elements of India. To give it a more quirkiness, the drinks have been named differently, eg. Maanga, Red Riding Wood,etc. MAANGA Vodka, Aam Panna, Sweet Lime & Jeera salt. COPPER MONKEY Whiskey, Mandrin, Passion Fruit, Mint & Bitters. CAIPIROSKA Cherry Tomato N Chilly RUM RITA Rum, Red Wine & Wild Berry Compote VODKATINI – Chocolate  The Starters  I have never seen so much variety in starters to go with the drinks. It in itself is a main-course buffet. The menu is an intense amalgamation of  the traditional Indian snacks, like a Maharashtrian …
