Connaught place has always been a hub for people when they are craving good food and drinks. There is a comparatively a recent and better option in the market – ‘Tourist Janpath‘ that is located near Scindia house on Janpath road, New Delhi.
The name itself describes the place. It is purely a Tourist based themed lounge/bar.
The place is spread over three floors.The first floor is kind of shisha lounge with a classy feel to it.On the second floor, there is a private lounge having a library section, live kitchen, impressive graphics, travel pics adorning the walls, hanging lights in globe structure, clocks of different countries and the most amazing sitting arrangement including ‘bunk beds’ in the lounge.On the third floor has a wonderful terrace that has a great view.
Absolutely, a decor that makes you feel that you are on a world tour.Truly, a remarkable experience!
Service was little bit late, but it could be appreciated as the cook’s were preparing the food which obviously takes some time.Staff members were well mannered and well informed.
FOOD AND DRINKS:
The food and drink menu was designed as passports of four different countries. Very innovative! The presentation of food was so tempting.
LPG Drink: Presented in a cylinder look alike with fumes coming out of it..that looked so alluring!!😍It was prepared with cranberry juice, sweet and sour and tequilla.Alcoholics, you can definitely put your hands on this drink. 👍 😀 Shakes: I tried two shakes ‘Caramel and peanut butter’ and ‘Nutella Nectar’. But ,both were lower than my expectations. The portions of the ingredients were inadequate making it less flavored and bland in taste.
Dragon Chicken: Our all time favourite chilly chicken. 😍😋The chicken was so juicy and savory that made the whole dish mouth-watering. Infact, i ate this whole!😜 Brown Sugar Chicken Strips: It was soft and crispy. It wasn’t bad in taste, acceptable!Bites of Bombay: It’s a famous street food from Mumbai prepared with vada pao and bhelpuri. Tasted so light and delightful!PTC: Patials tikkas of chicken! It was well cooked, soft and luscious in taste.Coney Dogs: Classic street food from the streets of america.It was made with hot dog buns, grilled chicken, sausages and green herbs/leaves..such a lip-smacking snack!Gallurese Gratin: It was simply the best vegetarian snack that I had there! Loaded with extra cheese and toppings..tasted little bit like a pizza. So succulent!
Boston cream waffle: Dessert from U.S.A. Prepared with milk, fan and dry fruits. It was unexpectedly great! 😉 Death by Eclairs : Dessert from France. Being an eclair lover, I was happy to see it. It looked so lovely! Different flavors on each donut. It was the last and the best.
