Coastal Reef - Gurugram!

Pure coastal flavors. I loved the food. I had great expectations and was not disappointed at all. Absolutely no frill, just real food and flavors. My first pick and drive to be here was pomphret tawa fry. Came out very nice, would have been better if they kept the cut onion garlic little subtle while serving and not all over my dead fish 😝 nevertheless i finished it in no time. Then was the turn for steamed rice with super spicy prawns, again I loved the flavor, strong tamarind,ginger and tinge of coconut. They call it puduvai prawn and it's straight from Pondicherry. I was full by now and I guess I will be here soon again for appam with some stew😬
Yes it was that good. But ambience is dull broken rickety. Just keep your eyes to your plate 😝 they were running full and hence complacent may be. They should definitely consider renovating interiors and decor, because for the prices they charge, I expect a decent living sitting πŸ˜•

Taste bud yell: Overjoyed
Pocket shouts: Mildly heavy When I look around: Very very dull and rickety
Waiting time for tummy: Don't mind much
My hosts: Sincere, but little warmth does not hurt 😬

Keep gorging!

Cafe Sante - Gurgaon!

Been here. A cute little cafe...with some awesome coffee. They have a whole range of desserts to savour. I had burger with mocha. Burger was not out of world. But yes with the vibe of the place and the good hospitality, I really dint mind. This is one place can get you Bangalore cafe fills on a rainy evening😬 they have an open area to lounge as well.

Taste bud yell: We are ok
Pocket shouts: Mildly heavy When I look around: tiny little cozy cafe, with both open and indoor sitting
Waiting time for tummy: Don't mind when you are busy chatting with friends

Jugaad Kitchen - Gurgaon!

Happened to be here on a chance Sunday evening. A nicely done small eatery, with a nice spread of everything Indian. Must be wondering if the name Jugaad is just for the sake of it, or there is really some jugaad in the affair. Yes, there is. They serve jugaad combos, very very affordably priced, serving great portions of dal makhni...rice/bread of choice, and a typical spicy curry you choose from the menu. The portion size is so big that one such combo can serve little less than two as well 😝 we went for paneer tikka masala and kadhai chicken. Wont recommend kadhai chicken as wrong order. Paneer was typical though..,but nice. So do order one combo of choice to really hog on jugaad.
I also happened to order Dahi k kebab..,it was nice. And some beverages to go with the whole mean, just complementing the plate, not out of the world.

Taste bud yell: indian food craving just met right
Pocket shouts: super light
When I look around: just eat your food and get going
Waiting time for tummy: not much
My hosts: gentle and caring, genuinely sought feedback

Keep Gorging!

Crepe-Fe - Gurgaon!

Visited the tiny outlet of Crep-fe in Banni's Square. By the way, all the food joints here are tiny and that let's you get a palate of so many different cuisines at one place. I like the place for the sheer calm against the chaos of all other popular malls and hangout places. 
 Coming to Crepe-fe, this is definitely premium because of which you may decide to give it a miss. But step in and you will feel the difference. They have managed to put up an up-market set-up, with contemporary decor. Even the tiny place is so well lit up, you don't feel congested. And staff goes all the way to make you feel comfortable and valued, unlike several other waffle and take away joints. At least going by my experience, the staff barely cares, rather they don't have the time to look up and bother. Here you are pleasantly greeted, escorted upstairs and offered mint-lime water.
As you walk up, the walls are decked up with all the offerings in glow boards. I eat the best Waffle in Gurgaon here. Others basically make it a batch process affair. Here you feel the exclusivity. The Waffle is fresh, neither thin or think to extreme, and crisp. Brilliantly done. And they take out time to
fill in all the troughs with Nutella and stand banana slices in each, again instead of scattering all over. I have the picture here, see for yourself. I had got them to deliver these with maple syrup once, and was equally awed by packaging and the freshness ensured. If you think you have had it, enough of waffles, trust me you are not done yet.
Won't take this long for rest, they serve bagel, not the tiny ones, but a really big one with many many varieties, I took paneer tikka. Indianised! But planning to pick up a different lighter one next time. They serve a whole range of gelato and sorbet as well. I happened to pick Belgian kitkat, which was smoothness with chunks of crisps.
Other items they serve and I could not try were pancakes, crepes. I am super curious to try out the crepes next. You definitely end up paying more. But you will not mind, because you know they have compelled you to leave wanting to come back again.

Taste buds yell: I am just not done yet
Pocket shouts: Heavy for tiny outlet
When I look around: Posh, neat, Lit-up, Lively
Waiting time for tummy: Not much really
My Hosts: You are taken care of with a smile and perfectly guided through the varieties and flavors

Keep Gorging!
