New Italian Cafe for Chocolate Lovers in Delhi

Featured

Colocal “The Cacao Artisans” Café is a dining heaven for all Chocolate lovers. They source Cacao from Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The café is spread across a huge space and is located within the Dhan Mill Compound in Chattarpur.

While there are no second thoughts to their awe-striking décor, Colocal is one of the best Insta-Worthy Cafes in Delhi I have been to. It has a fabulous ambiance and food is presented beautifully.

I travelled all the way just to experience their sumptuous Hot Chocolate.

Colocal Campfire Chocolate – This usually comes 54% Dark Chocolate with a Marshmallow but being a hardcore Dark Chocolate lover I got it customized to 72% Dark Chocolate and the staff was happy to serve that way. It was hot and absolutely delicious and made my day! MUST MUST TRY!!

Garden Salad with Burrata Cheese – A fresh mix of lettuce along with Burrata Cheese and seasoned veggies dressed with beetroot lemon sauce.

BBQ Chicken Wings – These Chicken wings were fried and comes along with citrus salad.

Pulled Mutton Burger – Soft buns stuffed with shredded lamb, cucumber, cheese slice, mint yogurt, rocket lettuce and lamb jus. So delectable also comes with zig zag peri peri fries on the side with chipotle sauce.

Saffron Prawn Mezzelune Pasta – These are freshly handmade half-moon shaped pasta stuffed with prawns and cooked in creamy saffron sauce. Every bite was a delight! MUST TRY!!

Pan Seared Fish – Succulent Basa Fillet topped with caper butter sauce. It is served with mash potato and grilled vegetables. Heavy on the tummy, easily serves two people.

Chocolate Fondue Platter – Fresh seasonal fruits along with Marshmallow along with chocolate fondue! Yum!

Its great-tasting, soul-satisfying, feels-good-in-your-tummy kind of food. The dishes look pretty, but they taste even better.

The hotel staff is polite and at your service always. Seafood is highly recommended at this property. Prawns Ceviche, Appam with Chicken Stew, Mysore Masala Dosa and Chilli Prawns cannot be missed!! If you are health conscious, they have wide range of fresh juices including carrot, beetroot juice and not to forgot kadha. Their dinner buffet is no less and is sumptuous.

Hyderabadi Biryani delivered at home

Biryani by Kilo is one of my favourite outlets for ordering kebabs and biryanis. Ordered some dishes for lunch and delivery was on time. Food was packed and labelled properly.

Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani – It had 4 huge pieces of chicken. Biryani was aromatic and tasted fresh and yum.

Chicken Korma – Chicken marinated in yogurt, cashew paste and fresh ground spices made into a rich Mughlai curry. Texture of curry was thick as expected and went well with their Ulte tawa ka paratha.

Will soon order their kebabs as well 🙂
