Restaurant Review: Ambrosia Bliss

Ambrosia Bliss is situated right in the middle of New Delhi in Connaught Place. This  property is barely 4 months old but has become famous for it’s food, interiors and fun filled events in this short period. It’s situated on outer circle of Connaught Place, just above Haldiram. The small entrance and a signboard give no indication about the lavish and huge restaurant inside.

There are three different sections, each one with a different purpose, design and unique charm. First one, Ambrosia is a fine dining place with a good amount of space, great decor, airy with good natural light. Bliss is a relaxing bar and lounge made more interesting with a huge screen, well stocked bar, Sufi rock live performance and other such events. The third one is a “small” private dining area for parties, conferences etc. which can comfortably accommodate 30 guests with space to spare. Each section has an outdoors seating area, it’s own unique design, ambiance  and appeal for different audience.

Ambrosia is a great place for relaxed meals with friends and family. Bliss is the place where you can go to have a few drinks, listen to live music, smoke hookah and just chill.  Guests in this section can order anything except main-course. The private dining area is for private small to mid-size gatherings or parties. As mentioned earlier, each section is designed to cater to a specific audience which is a fairly nice touch. When you combine all this, whole property is huge and one of the largest in the city. Ambrosia and Bliss sections by themselves are larger than most mid-sized restaurants .
FOOD & DRINKS

The food and drinks menu is just as expansive with huge amount of choices which are enough to leave [...]

Restaurant Review: Schengen- Deli, Bistro, Pub

Malcha Marg is a nice, quiet place for spending  a lazy day doing nothing away from deafening traffic and crowd of New Delhi. The opening of Schengen- Deli, Bistro, Pub in the area has added one more place to relax and have some good food and drinks. The property commands a nice, green view of the area from it’s small but well designed outdoor seating. Upon entering, the place looks small, but there are 3 floors and one basement, each with a different decor and ambiance including one outdoor section. We were particularly impressed by the wall art and innovative use of furniture and space.

Interiors are an amalgam of different styles and are tastefully done. The designers have done a great job of getting the best out of small area on each floor and it doesn’t feel cramped or congested even with a fairly large number of guests. According to management, the basement will have a European themed deli soon. Our time of visit was late afternoon with a weak sun and we decided to sit on the balcony outdoors. Both food and drinks menu are fairly detailed and have a number of generic as well as special items.  We were hungry and wanted to taste as many dishes as possible. We requested  Chef Piyush to suggest a few dishes of his choice and after asking us about our preferences, he suggested a few which went on perfectly well with our palettes. To begin with, we were served Roast Pumpkin and Scamorza Soup with cinnamon. It was thick, mildly flavoured and had great aroma. Addition of a small cinnamon stick was a nice touch. Bread basket had 4 different breads and bread sticks. Each one was soft and freshly baked. [...]

Start a healthy cooking revolution with Olive oil

Press release from an informative and interesting event about olive oil with chef Kunal Kapoor and nutritionist Seema Singh. The event covered the health benefits of olive oil and it’s use in cooking.

 
New Delhi, January 14, 2015: Discover how Olive Oil makes cooking healthier and tastier with Chef Kunal Kapoor and Nutritionist Seema Singh. Bring home all the original flavors of the Mediterranean and enjoy a balanced meal every time you cook.

It is a known fact that Olive Oils are one of the healthiest oils in the world. They are rich in antioxidants and beneficial substances and have high nutritional value. They even help prevent and fight against many diseases.
Olive Oil is ideal for cooking, be it Indian or continental, and even in the preparation of salads and desserts. Its ability to resist high temperatures makes it easier to create a thin, golden and crunchy coating, which prevents the food from absorbing oil, keeping it juicy and appetizing. This feature makes it ideal for cooking Indian dishes without changing the taste and texture of the dish.
Chef Kunal Kapoor at Join the Olive Oil Revolution says “There are many reasons for joining the most delicious and the healthiest revolution in history! A revolution that began thousands of years ago and that has reached us today to give a new, delicious touch of flavor to all our favorite recipes will help us discover more such recipes.”
Nutritionist Seema Singh says “During a child’s first years, the energy requirement is very high. Some of the energy consumed comes from fat, either in milk, essential in childhood, or from other types of fat. Olive Oil is one of the most healthy Oils, it is rich in [...]
