Raasta: The amazing reggae themed restaurant

Raasta has always been there on my wishlist, and then i read about their Sunday brunch and i had to try it. What an amazing way to spend your Sunday.
Raasta is nearby the Green park metro station, it’s easy to locate.
INTERIORS/AMBIANCE
The interiors are beautifully done. Even the rooftop is picturesque.
trippin Flavors
I was already overwhelmed with the reggae theme and songs.
To be honest it was all heavenly. I fell in love with the theme already and was yet to try out their food.

FOOD
Talking about the food, everything was Lip-smacking.
There wasn’t a thing that i didn’t like but I’ll surely list my favorites.
Chicken Faffa: I’ve been obsessed with this dish since the day i tried it. The chicken faffa here was sooo creamy and juicy. I loved every bit of it. The chicken was cooked to perfection and i loved it.
IMG_20171223_153757_963.jpg
Barabados non veg platter: or maybe you can say heaven in a Platter. It had all the amazing non veg dishes. Sausage and bacon wrapper were showstopper though. Other dishes on the platter were chicken skewers, lamb jalapeño cigar rolls, and carib chicken strips. OMG! I can still feel the taste.

Tibetan Dish: Laping/Lafing(at Popo Lafing)

Hey!

This is something i’ve been dying to try.  Laping is a tibetan dish, also spelled as lafing. It was only available at Majnu ka tila, thank god its’s now available in Satyaniketan. This tiny cutesy place serves absolutely lipsmacking lafing.

IMG_20171026_154331(1).jpg

The place is basically a take-away joint, but there are chairs for you to rest for a while. The staff is really humble and polite.

IMG_20171026_154305.jpg

Lafing is a kind of flat noodle made out of mung bean and With other fillings. These are the sauces you can choose from.

IMG_20171026_154258.jpg

I went with the red pepper sauce and oh boy! it was spicier than i thought. The lafing looked so good though.

IMG_20171026_191306_345

Here’s my bowl of gorgeous gorgeous lafing. It was soo soft and spicy and delicious.

I’ve never had something like this before.

It cost me just  ₹60 .  Yess!

Go on and try it today! 😀

Gol Chakkar Cafe

Gol Chakkar Cafe

Here’s the newbie in town that’s grabbing a hell lot of attention, and for all the good reasons.

I’m talking about the “The Gol chakkar Cafe” that has been recently opened in Kalkaji, gol chakkar. Now you know why is it named The Gol Chakkar. Since the place is new, it is mostly vacant all the time, so it’s the best time to visit. Let me tell you about this place in detail.

Insiders

Talking about the interiors, it has indoor seating as well as rooftop seating, and above the roof there’s another roof. Yes, the place is quite big to accomodate a huge crowd.

TGC interior the gol chakkar cafe kalkaji

TGC interior

Beautiful interiors, decorations, makes this place a perfect place for clicking amazing selfies. You’ll love the different vibrant colours and shades.

How’s The Food?

Okay! I loved the place, the loved the interiors and the music too, but that’s not gonna fill my empty stomach. So let’s come to the main point. Since the place is new, and one of the much talked about recently, i wanted to try everything that my little stomach could accomodate. Don’t worry mine is a very cooperative one. Lol. No more jokes. Food is a serious business. Okay, so one by one I’ll be giving a short review on everything i tried here.

1. Virgin Mojito and Electric Shock

Gol chakkar cafe, TGC

Electric Shock and Virgin Mojito

Both the Mocktails were bang-on. Especially the electric shock, it had that tangy punch and amazing soothing feel after one sip. Virgin Mojito was good, but nothing special. Just the normal virgin mojito you find anywhere.

2.Gol Gappe Shots

TGC

Gol Gappe shots

The best thing about the shots was that they served them in a truck. How cutee! but as i already said taste is what matters to me the most. The golappe failed to please my tatse buds, they were very average, from the presentation i was expecting something better.
3. Farmhouse Pizza

The Gol Chakkar Cafe pizza

Farmhouse Pizza

I absolutely loved this pizza. I’m not big fan of veg pizzas, but this one was amazing. One of the best veg pizzas I’ve ever had. I definitely recommend you try this one. You’ll love it.

4. Baked Chicken Nachos

Baked Chicken Nachos

The second best thing i loved here is this lovely platter of baked nachos. What’s the first? You’ll know. *wink*.                     The platter was sizzling hot and came straight out of the oven without any delay. The nachos were crisp, the chicken chunks were crispy and the dips were out of this world. I give this dish a five star. I can visit this place just to have this one dish.

5. Chocolate Shake

Chocolate Shake

The shake was thick, chocolaty and had all the characteristics of any good chocolate shake. It wasn’t anything extraordinary, but was good.

6. The Arancini Surprise

tgc

Arancini Surprise

“The Arancini Surprise” this is what they call it. I had no idea what was i ordering but i did anyway. I didn’t fail. It was indeed a surprise. How badly i wanted to take this cute umbrella home. The presentation was outstanding, and something i had never seen. Coming back to it’s taste, it was mashed potato filled with mozzarella cheese and rolled into cute little balls and then deep fried. It was served with mayo and lemon butter sause. I highly recommend this dish to you.
7. Chicken Biryani

Gol Chakkar Cafe

Chicken Biryani

I am a hugeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Biryani lover, and it wasn’t mere coincidence that this place had amazing biryani. I was destined to eat this biryani. I cannot explain i was just so tempted, it took a lot of patience to click this picture. Trust me! The biryani was deliciousest( why isn’t this a word already? Nvm) I’ve ever had. The Chicken pieces were cooked to perfection, i loved every bit of it. The raita was amazing too.  I highly recommend this to you. Please try it.

8. Reconstructed Tiramisu

Gol chakkar cafe

Reconstructed Tiramisu

I never imagined I’ll get this when i order tiramisu. Again i was impressed by the presentation. I was full, yet i ordered this, i wanted to end this on a sweet note. The tiramisu was good, and the normal you get anywhere. But the presentation is what made it different from others.

let’s wind up!

“Tin Town” is the new favorite in town

“Tin Town” is the new favorite in town

Hey there!

I am here again with a new place and new memories. Satyaniketan has always been my favorite, not only because the restaurants here are pocket friendly, but also because there’s a huge number of restaurants to decide from.

This time we were just fooling around and this pretty restaurant came into our notice. “Tin Town” the interiors had something to do with ‘tin’ i guess.

Insider

As i walked in, i was completely shocked with how pretty and creative the interior was. The place isn’t really huge but big enough to hold 20 people.Dont worry it is more spacious than  Hera Pheri and QRO.

best interior

Interior

The seats are really comfortable and you can comfortably sit and have a chat with your friends or partner. They have a separate setup for hookah which really impressed me ’cause hookah smoke is really a no-no for me.

The place has tiny lamps and a pretty setup which makes it really beautiful at night.

How’s the food?

I was quite skeptical with the food because the staff didn’t seem to be quite professional with the work, doesn’t change the fact that they were extremely polite and courteous.

They handed over the menu, which took me a while to read, because they have everything in the menu!

Chinese, indian, and continental as well. This is the place to be in whenever you’re craving nachos, kebabs, burger, and noodles at the same time. This place is a blessing!

First of all i order a plate of baked chicken nachos. Oh-my-gosh! To be honest it was the best nachos I’ve ever had in my life, they made the nachos extra cheesy on my request. Perfectly cooked chicken, crispy nachos. Perfect amount of jalapenos, served with the best dip!

Next we ordered a coffee frappe and a KitKat shake. The coffee frappe was delicious, perfect coffee with a hint of chocolate. Just the way it should be made.

Kitkat, kit kat, KitKat shake

KitKat Shake

On the other hand KitKat shake wasn’t that good, the consistency wasn’t thik, and the KitKat was floating inside. It wasn’t too bad, neither was it too good.

Coffee Frappe

Then i thought of trying something Desi, So i ordered chicken tikka. The platter looked so pretty and seemed like the tikkas were dying to jump into my mouth. Tikkas were definitely as good as they appeared, perfect blend of flavours and masala, cooked to perfection. Tikkas were literally melting in my mouth. It was served with an equally delicious coriander chutney! Just perfect.

Pasta and pizza are two things which almost everone loves. They had baked pasta in their menu so we tried that too, and pizza veggie delight from all the pizzas they had.

The amount of pasta they served was way too much! I mean really, the quantity was really good. We don’t usually get such quantity in other restaurants. It was sizzling hot, straight out from the oven. It was very gooey and cheesy. Served with 2 garlic breads. The pasta tasted good, but I’d prefer normal pasta over baked pasta anyday.

Usually i don’t eat veg pizza but this one tasted just too good. Thin crust, topped with tangy sause, and appropriate amount of cheese and veggies. The pizza tasted really good.

I was almost full,but didn’t want to leave thr place without trying a dessert. The staff recommended me to try Ebony and Ivory. So i did. Trust me people it tasted so good! It was a perfect dessert. It wasn’t too sweet, just perfect. It was toped with chocolate cyrup which completed the dessert.

Desserts, best dessert

Ebony and Ivory

let’s wind up!


Ambience: 4/5

Taste: 4.5/5

PocketFriendly: 4/5

Staff: 4.5/5

It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in Satyaniketan. You can plan a get-together with your friends, or a romantic date with your partner. The place is just perfect to soothe your tastebuds. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Will i visit this place again? Definitely yes. I’m going try more of their food.
Hope you liked the post!
