Must place to try Best Sushi in Delhi

Featured

I have been at Honk, Pullman Hotel in New Delhi few times now. They have recently launched their Yum Cha Daily Lunches wherein you can feast over 22 different kinds of steamed, pan-fried and baked dimsums along with soups, salads and a meal in a bowl. Chicken & Chive pan-fried dimsum and Eggplant Puff with sweet chili and garlic are highly recommended. Apart this delish feast, they also serve premium Asian teas and beverages like shochu, sake and umeshu. The best way to conclude the meal is with their special homemade gelatos.

Also been to Honk for dinner and everything was absolutely delicious. Started with Larb Gai salad which was bursting with flavours. Also Tuna Pizza was tasty.

Tried their dimsums and sushi as well. Red Dragon Sushi, Fire ball Sushi and Kaibashira Sushi were yum. Also tried Lobster dumplings with black truffle caviar dumpling, Black pepper chicken dumpling and the best one was Laksa Crab and Prawn dumpling – MUST TRY!! Honk is, no doubt, the best place I have had the best sushi in New Delhi.

For mail course had ‘Honk’s own’ spicy Prawns, Lamb black pepper, Garlic and Chives Fried rice and Vegetable Hakka Noodles.

All the desserts we tried were made to perfection:

Fried cinnamon banana with white sesame jaggery fudge – Simply loved this one.

Trio ice-cream (Coconut & Kaffir Lime, Honey, Avocado) – Avocado ice-cream was the best!!

Staycation at WelcomHotel, ITC

Featured

Had an incredible luxury Staycation experience at WelcomHotel, Dwarka by ITC hotels in New Delhi. I stayed in their Studio Suite. The suite was huge and with a wider outside view. The suite I stayed was at 8th Floor and had a pool view. Suite is equipped with a spacious living area, workstation, bedroom and there is ample room to relax.

7

They welcomed me in the suite with Mulled Wine, Roses and Dessert Platter which was created in a personalized way. The experience was best of luxury and service standards are highly commendable. The bed was super comfortable and washroom was very big with rain shower. Products in the washroom were of premium quality.

 

The hotel has the highest level of hospitality. Had an extravagant Christmas brunch at Pavilion 75 which serves the best of Indian and Oriental cuisines. They had everything on the counter from Roasted Duck to Spinach & Pomegranate shots to Red Snapper. Also highly recommend the desi Makke ki Roti & Sarso ka Saag.

After stuffing myself so much, it was time to relax in my luxurious suite. Watched some series on their Flat-screen TV and munched on seasonal fruits which they serve daily in the suite. Thereafter, headed to WelcomWelness for an amazing Spa session called WelcomSignature Spa and concluded with a steamy shower. The Spa experience was amazing and it is a must to de-stress yourself.

For evening snack, I ordered their Lamb Burger and Chicken Tikka Pizza. Both were super delicious. Pizza was loaded well with chicken chunks and cheese.

Dinner was at Kebabs & Kurries, it is ITC Hotel’s award winning signature fine cuisine North Frontier Indian Specialty Restaurant. The restaurant is lit with 1100 candles and has live ghazal which makes the dinner experience very memorable. Service was top notch by Aman and Chef Jitender prepared some special dishes one of them being Paneer stuffed with veggies. This dish was lip-smacking and I highly recommend it. Also had other signature dishes like the popular Dal Bukhara. Non-vegetarian platter and Gosht Biryani was also scrumptious. I tried the dessert sampler which had Kulfi, Shahi Tukda and Gulab Jamun. Shahi Tukda being the best ever I have tasted till date.

They also have another restaurant called the Shanghai Club. As the name suggests, it specializes in Chinese cuisine and serves delightful dimsums and spring rolls.

Next morning, visited their huge gyming area which comprises of many equipments. After a sweaty session, ordered a variety of different dishes for breakfast in the suite, from lavish English Breakfast to Masala Dosa to Chocolate stuffed Croissants, they had everything on the menu. Highly recommend their Chicken and Cheese Sandwich which was grilled to perfection.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at WelcomHotel, Dwarka and their hospitality is praiseworthy. A must hotel in case you plan for a luxury stay.

Runway1, Delhi

Runway1 is located in Rohini, Delhi has an amazing concept of a restaurant inside an original aeroplane. They have also opened in Ambala, Haryana. Apart from the restaurant inside, you can also dine on the wings, play virtual reality games in their cockpit (additional charge), host parties, etc. To board the aeroplane restaurant, you need to purchase a boarding pass. I booked a table on wings (additional charge) for my Mom’s birthday and the team was amazing enough to decorate it with balloons and flower petals. The servers are friendly and the service is super-fast.

Brownie Shake – Thick chocolate brownie shake in a tall glass with chocolate syrup on the sides and topped with warm soft brownie chunks.

Biryani Hub

The Biryani Project aims at delivering authentic biryani in Delhi NCR from all over India.
The owners are passionate and have done enough research to make this project successful. Their dedication towards food is amazing.

I ordered half Godavari biryani which was enough for two and was served along with raita which was in a glass jar. Deliver was spot on time and packed well in a handi. Chicken quantity was great as well.

Godavari biryani is a specialty of Andhra Pradesh and chose this one with chicken. It had curry leaves, pan-fried chicken, baghara rice and was prepared in Andhra style. Tried this biryani for the first time and I must say it had too many spices; chicken was cooked to perfection though.

Project Biryani

Also tried their Hyderabadi Biryani which I felt was a little bland. Chicken was fresh and juicy but biryani lacked flavour.
