Summer gets sweeter at Baris 

If you have a sweet tooth or you love everything sweet. Or may be you are like me who loves to hog on to desserts first before I move to main food, then Baris awaits your visit to indulge your taste buds into a sweet temptation.

A menu that is curated by their chef Mr. Sahib Ibis, the entire range of summer dessert is loaded with summer cool ingredients, that represents the perfect blend of hand picked summer fussion  dishes. And the portion sizes are so indulging that you won’t mind those extra calories.

Best part of the food at Baris is that it marinated the food much longer to achieve the perfect blend of spices and taste unlike the over cooking that we generally do while making food, that you end up getting the taste of spices only.

And even I felt the extension of this in their summertime sweetness Dessert menu as well.Let me take you to the sweetest culinary trip to the dessert on offer this summer at Baris

1.) Aam Lava ( Rs. 325) : in case you could follow my last blog on Baris or have been to this Mediterranean dining then you need no introduction to the best item on their dessert menu,  yes it’s Baklava. And Aam Lava is a mango infused traditional Baklava that is served with mango cinnamon syrup.  And a presentation to die for. Don’t  believe check this out. And a mango flavored muse over it, garnished with dry fruits.

And Nothing gets better when the MasterChef  Chef Sahib Ibis from Turkey  serves it to you.  It’s ought to be extra sweet. Got lucky second time to be served by the curator himself, with his million dollar Turkish smile,

2.) Figamisu ( Rs. 325) : Well this is a version of Tiramisu with a blend of figs,  savoiardi cookies layered with mascarpone cream. And look at the presentation isn’t it difficult to control. This is devilish for sure.

3.) Twisty Turkish Delight ( Rs. 275)  : So as the name goes it’s a Turkish dessert made with carrots, Coconut, walnuts and Cinnamon. And this is one dish you will definitely want to order again.

4.) Kazan dibi Muhallebi ( Rs. 275) : Yaa that’s the name probably the most exotic  and is the lightest dessert on the menu on sweet quotient and taste too. It’s caramalised milk pudding with mastic & seasonal fruit salad. It had mango so for me it was the perfect pick. Chilled fruit salad on such a creamy and light base tasted simply yum.

5.) Shambali (Rs. 275)  : Last one on the list but not any less. Yes wheat semolina orange pound cake with cinnamon salted caramel & Vanilla ice cream on the top. This is pure Bliss. An ultimate dessert to dig into.

The Food Abode : Gastronomica Kitchen & Bar at GK 

“Gastronomica” is a Spanish word that stands for Food and this place was  truly an abode of good food. Located in M block market it’s a fun place to hangout at.

Loved the ambience and the way entire sitting was done, quite a lot of efforts put in the details. And each corner has its own appeal be it inside sitting or the balcony sitting

A place that serves Chocolate shakes is always one of my favorite. And this one had 2 of my favorite things on menu one of course you guessed it right Death by chocolate , a chocolate shake and another Paan based drink – virgin paan and gulkand Mojito.

And here’s the other one which was really nice but probably the straw was wrong. As it was actually difficult to sip the gulkand through this straw. All paan lovers will simply love it. Quite liked the efforts in experimenting with Paan.

Started off on starters with raw banana kababs and the presentation was simply more than appetizing.

But I still have something for dahi based kabab and this Kadak Papad Kabab was stuffed with Spinach and coated with roasted papad fried to perfection and of course great on taste and presentation.

And how can a vegetarian not have Paneer in starters. So cream cheese Paneer tikka was just a perfect pick with a overdose of Paneer.

One more thing that I tried for the first time was Tandoori Jackfruit and quite liked it since I love Jackfruit.

Moving on to main course,  I think when one is in love with a particular cuisines you always end up having almost same stuff in vegetarian. So here is my pick Dal makahni and Paneer kaliya in the main course. And both the dishes were simply amazing. Had a really yummy Paneer dish in mains after a very  long time. And just loved it.

I literally waited for the desserts like anything as I have spotted this Dish ” Green Apple Beetroot Halwa” , and since we hardly find people who like beetroot,  I was seriously looking forward to this one,  and here it came with Red apples though but tasted yummy.

And was very very close to gajar ka halwa if I was blind folded and was asked to have this dish I would have guessed it gajar ka halwa. So this is definitely my strongest recommendation from their dessert menu.

So overall a great dining experience with nice Mocktail and starters options. And very nicely done sitting space. Do visit sometimes.

The Orb at RadissonBlu 


Lavish elegance, upscale styling with the bar counter right in centre,  done with very nice lights around the Bar table is the main highlight of this place, adding to the charm of the new kid on Block and has just opened.

An avant garde bar offering exotic drinks, appetizing food and foot-tapping music in a perfect setting of cosy corner sitting across sofas and couches. 

Well a Mocktail person is always a missfit in a bar, but still there is always something to look at from the non alcoholic drinks as well,  have a look.

Paris Dreams 

A Mocktail made of Ginger, apple juice, lime and ginger ale.

The Orb Love : A Mocktail made of pomegranate juice, Lime , mint and vanilla syrup, little sweet but that’s how it needs to be.

In search of Paradise 

Well that’s not what I am looking for but that’s what I had at The Orb, yes it’s a Mocktail by that name. Though would not call it paradise of mocktails  but yes in search of paradise for sure, made with peach,  apricot and ginger ale.

Getting on food, and off course vegetarian food,  herein are my picks.

Bruscheta rather I should be calling it mini Bruscheta , small in size but just the right size to fit in your mouth.

Loaded with fresh veggies was a good starter.

Being a hardcore Paneer love,  it’s a mandate to have at least one dish from paneer and picked Dakshini  Paneer ke tinkey. A mildly spiced and well marinnated Paneer served with green chutney. 

One serving had 6 pieces sufficient for 2 people.

Veg Kathi Roll

The filling was too good,  blame it to my Paneer Love  just loved this.

Kaffirelime scented corn fritters


A corn deep fried dish , order on your own risk. It tasted great with the sweet and tangy chutney but was quite heavy.

So just loved the “The Orb” experience. Very well designed space and a huge comfortable sitting. And my favorite place is just in the bar counter.

So as we are still counting days to this event, Trust me its worth waiting for such a Pet extravaganza, the PetFed team is all out there hosting and organizing some really outstanding event to further strengthen the Pet community, bringing together the Pet owners and their pets in the environment where they not only can unwind but do really cool and fun stuff. Don’t believe me , check out their website that talks strongly of their monthly BYOD events where the Pet along with their humans are having amazing time.

Gracious Pool Party 

They recently did a Pool party for pets at Gracious Pool in Sohna Road, Gurgaon and the pics below speak the quanta of fun the pet owners had. while most of them really wanted to go out to a place that allows Pets in the pools, and this one came as one such big opportunity. Since most of them are associating for the first time with Petfed and thus are amazed to explore places like these which they have never heard of.

While this journey of exploring new places to go to with your pet is on, #PetFed team came up with  Puppychino Day Out by Pet Fed , that was being hosted in Delhi’s only Dog cafe – #PuppyChino. and trust me being a part of this event was such a stress buster.

Puppychino Day Out by Pet Fed

So what is Puppychino – well its a Dog cafe right in Shahpur jat and its a must visit place for dog / pet lovers. Owned by Ms. Nayani Tandon and no prize for guessing that she is a dog lover herself and proud owner of 2 dogs who are found in the cafe most of the time.

Read everything about this cafe Here 

The core idea behind the event was to get the pet lovers together over brunch at PuppyChino and help them explore this place and its love for dogs. And the view of dogs all around having fun was breath taking.The dog owners few of them being regular guest here were happy to see so many new entrants in the group and almost all interacting like parents do in a parents teacher meet. And all the dogs introducing each other using their Olfactory glands.

when we say it’s a dog cafe how can we miss on the dog food, well this place is up with a gastronomic trip for its patrons with a complete menu for Dog food.Have a look at the Pizza and pastas they grooved on.

Meet few regular guests at this Cafe 

The best part of these meet ups is they break the boundaries that Pets are just to be taken to parks not to cafes. and probably paves way for more such cafe across places to let the Pet owners spend some quality time without having to lock the pets back home.

Shruti & Duke 

So while this is her  5th Visit but Shruti was equally thrilled with so many more friends for Duke – her  labrador Dog who loves this place as much as Shruti does.

whatsapp-image-2016-11-20-at-12-45-20-pm-1

Having her white sauce pasta she mentions – ” I just loves the food here and a brunch here is always on the cards for me and Duke at this place, clearly you don’t have much choices to take your pet to, so even while I comes all the way from Mayur Vihar ( East Delhi ) but the time spent here is worth the ride.And the Duke loves the company of both the owners dogs here”

One more such visitor i came across was this cool gang who were here to just have food. While Abhishek  is in a business of pet nutrition and sells online at  – Dawgie Bowl  And his brand philosophy is “Good food is at the heart of everything ” and so thats what brings him at Puppychino , good food you see.

Enjoying Good Food 

To make the event more fun and engaging the #PetFed team has organized a lot of fun games from musical chair for dogs to Selfie contest for dogs. And it was pure bliss to see the dogs perform like small kids.

Probably for the first time i saw so much love all around. Even animals communicate better than humans with the language of love. check out these clicks to live those puppylicious moments

And here is one with the gang ( And trust me it was not easy to make the humans and pets in the camera in one go. But it was perfectly okay as they were not here to get clicked they were here just for Fun, and they had oodles of it for sure.
