Let’s move to food. 

Mocktails

When you are out for long in a hot day,  all you need is something chilled. We had Mandarin sour and Smooch.

Starters 

#Dahi K Kabab : Any place that does Dahi Kebabs right,  always wins me over and this place served one of the best Dahi Kababs I had in Gurgaon. 

# Jalapeno poppers : Not a jalapeno fan but just loved the crispy poppers and their presentation. Good to have

#Vegetable Spring rolls :  This is something that if is crispy,  it’s good to have. The filling becomes secondary if crispiness is there. and presentation always appeals to our eyes.

#Spinach Pizza : just loved it. yes just loved it to the core. Looks healthy already when you see a perfectly crisp thin base Pizza with a healthy spinach layer. And tasted great too.

If you seriously ask me sometimes its about having  your favorite food done in the right way is an ultimate thing. I was seriously full but since we have ordered main course so dragged myself to have some more. 

Tried Green Thai curry with plain rice and noodles.

And Finally desserts we had chocolate cake slice with vanilla ice cream.

Overall this is a place to sit back,  relax absorb nature, bring your kids and let them run around and hear them giggle. Enjoy the mist fans on the terrace with ultimate Gurgaon view. 

Also their interior have few very interesting stuff , have a look

So explore all this and more in your kind of corner at The Clock Tower and travel in your own time space.

5 Tips to Choose your Mocktails wisely

Most of the time when we are having mocktails , we never give a damn on the calorie count of the mocktails and always tend to pick something basis our palate or something that looks good to eyes,

Here are few quick things to consdier while ordering a mocktail

 

1.Always go by the mocktai that uses fresh fruits : 90% of the mocktails on the menu are always made by slush / fruit concentrates. Rule one to pick a healthy mocktail is go by fresh fruit preparations in soda.

2. Avoid high sugar content in mocktails , always ask your bartender for details of your mocktail even if the menu offers complete description of the mocktail. Check the % of the fruit concentrate / syrup which he is going to use and get an idea if its too high on calories.

3. Go basic when in doubt , whenever you are confused go by the basic like Virgin Mojhitos with lots of mind and crushed ice in it. this is the most healthy mocktail on the menu with lemon.

4. Go for Ice based mocktails , while we all look for a cool drink to hang out with always preffer a mocktail that has lots of ice in it as that would help you cut on calories as ice ( water ) dilutes the mocktail and reduces on calories.

 

5. Prefer Soda based drinks over cola based drinks. Treat your drinks with respect and dont drink it like water, sip it like wine and enjoy it so that you consume less.

Naturally No Place is as Original as Mom’s Kitchen

 

Well that’s not what the title is, that’s a line from my favorite ice cream parlor, Yes! it non other than Naturals Ice Cream. Imagine I have always carried kilos of this Ice cream from Mumbai ever since 2011 when i first got introduced to this during one of my visit to this city – Mumbai.

As far as history of Natural ice cream  goes this was established in 1984 in Mumbai, they are pioneers in making artisan ice creams using only fruits, dry fruits, chocolates, milk and sugar with  no preservatives or stabilizers in their product. This Ice cream point is the brain child of  by Mr. R S Kamath, CMD of Kamaths Ourtimes ice creams Pvt. Ltd.

So why am i writing a blog on this, well i was amazed to see the size of this place , everyday on by way to office i passed this place for a month at 9:30 and felt bad as it was not open. So finally when i was late for office i was the happiest that this place would be open by now. and stopped by at 11 to checkout my favorite ice cream before starting a day at office.

Sitting space 

Never expected such big a natural ice creams  parlor just around the Lajpat nagar Metro station. for that matter a place as huge as this with visibility from 2 sides and such nicely done interiors selling ice creams and shakes. In Mumbai people step out till 12 in the night just to have ice creams and these places are open till that late.

So whats my pick, I have always adored their 2 evergreen flavors -Tender coconut & Alfonso Mango. though my favorite is Sitafal ( Custard apple ) but unfortunately that’s a seasonal fruit and thus only available in sep – nov i think.

Mulberry  – new introduction 

This time for the first time i tried adding fresh fruits to my Natural ice cream and it was good for change.

Tender coconut has coconut pulp / fresh pieces of coconut in the ice cream and most of their fresh fruit ice cream flavors has loads of fruit chunks of the fruits adding the fruity flavor of the ice cream.

So easiest way to pick your ice cream is going by your favorite fruit and trust me you will not be disappointed. I had made a lot of people taste these ice creams and the best part about their ice cream was when i carried them from Mumbai was their dry ice take away box that helps you take the ice cream from one place to another and is packed well to let it last for 12- 24 hours in the box. Had been having their ice creams across cities have had it in Bangalore, Ahmedabad and still don’t mind going all the way to CP to try when i crave for it.

And i always plan to try their shakes but every time i end up having Ice creams only.
