The Luncheon at The Janpath Grill House



Last Friday, I was invited to a food blogger's meet at the newly opened Barbeque joint, JANPATH GRILL HOUSE located in the heart of the city. As I reached the venue, a tricoloured  name plate greeted me....wow!





And then there was a half auto as a help desk, which looked rather cute and quirky. Inside, the decor was simple yet tasteful. The restaurant is spread across two floors and has a laid back warm vibe to it. The highlight of the decor was a handpainted wall depiciting the essence of  "Saadi Dilli ". Have a look :)






As we seated ourselves comfortably, we were served drinks - Gur ka sharbat, hajmola ka gola and aam ki shikanji. Well, all three had distinct taste but Aam ki shikanji had an edge over others. It was something I had not tasted before...neither it tasted like aam panna or any other mango drink nor like shikanji ( which is essentially a lime based drink).




As is the concept with barbeque joints, there was a live grill on the table. An array of kebabs and tikkas were served. Being a vegetarian, I went for the achari paneer tikka, beetroot kabab, which were sumptous. The non vegetarians options included fish, chicken and prawns.





We were also served my personal favorite golgappe,which were baked and styled beautifully. Also, got to see another innovative recipe, the MOLECULAR CHAAT. The executive chef, Tarun Chanana, himself demonstrated the process. Here, dahi and bhallas are immersed in liquid nitrogen ( which has a temperature of - 200 degrees and freezes everything which comes in contact ) for a few seconds. It freezes the curd and bhallas, making it super crispy. Enjoy !






A live pasta counter dished out pasta according to your tastebuds...I happened to taste the "melt in your mouth" cheessey pasta as well as the "tangy" penne in Arabiatta sauce. Both were very good.






There were ample choices for the vegetarians in the main course. Paneer butter masala, Dal makhni and Rajma were really good. You could smell the fresh aroma of spices, simmered to perfection.




Ab kuch meetha ho jaye .... there was phirni, which had a smooth texture and was subtle with just about perfect amount of sugar. Gulab Jamun was like any other you get at regular sweet shops. The rose flavoured kulfi was perfect to round a scrumptious meal.

Though, i missed a chocolate based dessert, i was told the menu changes everyday. The price for the buffet is as




All in all, had a great time with friends from the fraternity and bonded over some great conversation and equally good food. So, next time, you are planning meet friends over drinks and dinner....head over to Janpath Grill House.

A Tangerine Sunday

Hi! Lovelies,
How are you doing ? Yesterday, it rained a bit so it's pretty pleasant today. I remembered that I haven't done an outfit post in the longest time and Sunday being Sunday,  what better time than now.....
I am wearing a tangerine maxi top to compliment the beautiful day along with my fave monochrome skirt. There's something about black & white combo...it's classy and always lends a beautiful aura to you. Paired it with wedges for the comfort factor and accessorised it with a silver tasselled neckpiece..
