Eating out

~The best places to eat out in the city~

 In today’s world, indulgence has become synonymous to 
the beautiful way of living, whether it’s apparels 
or accessories, automobiles or hi tech gadgets, or an
 evening out with friends, we are always looking for something
 that could tantalize our senses.With the craze for the limited
 editions and the tenfold increase in upscale living with
 modern amenities; and the paraphernalia of indulgence,
 we are gladly acknowledging the famous quote of 
living life king size. A bit of indulgence off and on is a 
perfect way to pep up life and add a little more spark to it.
 The mere mention of the word is enough to evoke our 
senses for the finer things in life. Pampering the five senses
 every now and then is surely the best way to maintain the 
balance between work and life, though of course, pampering
 the sense of taste surely tops the list. 
Life and food surely go hand in hand and satiating
 the taste buds with some food around some gorgeous
 ambience is surely what most of us believe in.
Our national capital, New Delhi and NCR, undoubtedly,
 tops the list when it comes to indulgence and pampering
 in the form of best food! The exclusivity and creativity of
 both the menu and the décor for me truly reflects in 
these gorgeous restaurants - Olive bar and kitchen, 
Lodi – The garden restaurant, Veda, Lavaash by Saby n 
Oh! Calcutta.

Olive bar and  Kitchen

Situated in Mehrauli, the Mediterranean décor of the place
 is truly enchanting. Nestled amongst huge trees with a
 cobbled courtyard, the place is the perfect epitome of 
indulgence and exclusivity on a Sunday morning. 
Their Crispy fried poached egg is truly something
 to die for.

Lodi – The garden Restaurant

Considered as one of the best restaurants of the city, this 
beautiful al fresco themed restaurant does full justice to its name. 
Sophistication along with nature creates an exclusive experience
 for the food enthusiasts to savor the delicacies, this 
place offers. This casual dining restaurant serves 
some best garden fresh salads.

The pan Indian fine dining restaurant is greatly known not 
only for great food but also for its gorgeous and exclusively

mirrors and elegant yet super stylish chandeliers truly steals 
your heart, as it is the best example of exclusivity and
 indulgence. Their Veda Spinach Chaat is surely a must try.

food then this is the place to rock on!!The subtle yet
 gorgeously  done interiors truly remind of the British

So these happen to be a few of my favorite destinations
 that strike a beautiful balance between exclusivity and
 indulgence. It will take you to a great gastronomical
 journey, pampering both the palate and the eyes.

The second best thing that we Indians are addicted to
 besides food is our love for the cars! The glossy beasts 
are the best way to indulge into a lovelier world of class 
and style. Oh, did youcheck the recently launched 
limited edition Dzire Allure?? It just reminds me that all 
finer things are always limited!!!
Limited Edition Dzire Allure comes with beige 
carpet mats, elegant interior styling kit, side skirts and 
stylish body graphics, which is a perfect amalgamation of 
enhanced comfort features and elegance!

Maruti Suzuki has been a brand icon, and when it 
comes to cars geared up with safety and style, they 
have always proved to be the best!! And their limited 
edition Dzire Allure is yet another testimony to 
the brilliant work they do, exclusively for the customers.

closing ceremonies of Olympic 2016 and 
Google was all ready to wrap up the super 
Doodle Fruit Games my daughter and I were 
craving for some more fruity games . 
Though we are not much of a online /app 
gaming family but the daily super cute google
doodles that kept popping for 17 days in cutest 
new avatars totally stole our hearts.
