The Perfect Sunday Feast

Isn't it crazy how a great conversation accompanied with some delicious food can make for a Perfect Outing? That is basically what my Sunday looked like and the same is my inspiration for this post. I decided to share some of the best dishes from my absolute favorite restaurants I relished this Sunday with the best of my friends.

Italian at Fat Lulu's Cafe and Bar

About : Giving you all the rustic and vintage vibes with their interiors while a great selection of music plays in the background, this has been one of my most recent discoveries and so far, I'm pretty pleased with it. A tiny little cosy eatery which should be on your list if you are craving Italian and 'more'

Address : 110 Cross Point Mall, 2nd floor, DLF Phase IV, Gurugram, Haryana

Choose it for :

  • Zomato Gold on Food

  • Pocket-Friendly Authentic(or at least pretty close) Italian

  • A Cosy Ambiance within the heart of Gurugram City

What We Had :

Hudson Garlic Bread (Rs. 195) - 8/10 - A recommendation from the server over your regular Garlic Bread - I have to say I relished every bite of it. A loaf of bread baked to perfection with Mozzarella and a sprinkle of herbs! The disappointing part however was the dip which was apparently Marinara Sauce - for me it was just cold and tasteless.

Spaghetti Arrabiata (Rs. 375) - 8.5/10 - A well-made al dente Spaghetti within a tangy and flavorful Arrabiata Sauce drizzled with a good amount of cheese to cut through and balance out the flavor. Just what you'd expect from a hearty bowl of pasta.

Chinese at Nooba

About :

An authentic fine dining experience with a great setting for personal as well as professional meetings. My favorite part apart from the authentic Chinese here is definitely the Velvety Red and Lush Wooden interiors with hints of Gold which I can admire all day long! Love the courteous service and the option of valet parking here.

ps. at one time they served a 5 Spice Chocolate Cake and boy! It was a gem!! Let me know if you have ever tried it.

Address : Shop.No.4, Pegasus One, Near South Point Mall, Golf Course Road, Parsvnath Exotica, DLF Phase 5, Sector 53, Gurugram, Haryana 122002

Choose it for :

  • Zomato Gold on Food (only applicable on Food at the Golf Course Outlet)

  • Probably the best Authentic Chinese in the city with these prices

  • A Luxurious and Peaceful Ambiance which makes for great conversations

What We Had :

Guangdong Diced Chicken Pan Fried Noodles in Chili Garlic Sauce (Rs. 580) - 10/10 - Now, when I give this dish 10/10 I genuinely mean it! For me, its a meal bowl of deliciousness. I can never ever not crave this. Perfectly crispy Pan friend Noodles served along with a couple of other veggies which I would normally never have if they aren't cooked this way in that punchy, hot chili garlic Sauce whose perfectly balanced recipe is crafted by a genius it seems. Damn! I need a portion of it right away!

Fried Rice with Fish in Oyster Sauce (Rs. 620) - 8.5/10 - All individual components - the fried rice, the veggies and the perfectly cooked fish are brought together with that deliciously prepared Oyster Sauce. Not only do all the flavors come together but the textures too play such a huge role in this dish. A great alternative is also their black pepper sauce for that really nice pepper hit.

ps. the dishes are a tad bit spicy than the average. So, if you can't tolerate spice then you can ask them to tone it down a bit. I like mine just they way they make it.

Desserts at AMPM Cafe and Bar

About : A Lively cafe and bar serving as a great spot to Chill and Hang Out with your mates at one of the most prime locations. I love the quirky interiors, the occasional live music and the choice of outdoor seating available here and more so, the fact that the quality is definitely at par with the the other options available in Galleria and around.

Address : R-003, DLF Galleria Market, DLF Phase IV, Gurugram, Haryana, 122002

Choose it for :

  • Zomato Gold on Food

  • A Great Selection of Desserts

  • Rooftop Outdoor Dining

Don't Choose it for :

  • This may be harsh to say but the savory meals REALLY need improvement

  • The service

What We Had :

Millionaires Brownie (Rs.295) - 7/10 - A classic, well-made and perfectly sweetened dessert with that perfect amount of walnuts in it. While I was impressed by the quantity, I would have loved a scope of a Gelato or Ice-Cream to go on top and it also might not be your thing if you prefer your Brownie meltingly soft.

Tiramisu Affagatto (Rs. 295) - 9.5 /10 - This is one of my all-time favorite dessert to fix my sweet tooth cravings. From the first bite to the last, each spoonful filled with that perfect balance of cheese, biscuit and cream melts in your mouth and you get an instant espresso hit which touches every nerve ending of your taste bud. I could go on talking about this but, I did deduct half a point as I prefer my Tiramisu to be in a jar like it was before and not the deconstructed version as it kind of got out of proportion this way.

Don't forget to drop down your comments if you have tried any of these dishes or outlets!!
