I was invited to be a part of the Gastronomica Kitchen & BarAﾯﾾﾾﾽand Delhi_foodie instameet for dinner on 26th May 2016.
1) Orange & Kaffir Lime Spritzer – it is the most PRETTIEST refreshing drink one can have in this scorching summer. It was bursting with flavors,Aﾯﾾﾾﾽfull of colors, not too sweet or tangy-just perfect according to my palate. 5/5
2) Watermelon cooler- another pretty, refreshing, red colored drink, a little sweeter compared to the orange &Aﾯﾾﾾﾽkaffir lime spritzer but had its own taste. 5/5
3) Rara meat sloppy joe burger- Although I am not a fan of any kind of burgers, but I fell in love with it on my first bite. The juicy minced meat in between the patties oozing with cheese was a pure delight to bite into. It was the most delicious item – that I had to have it packed for home (of course I paid for it) 5/5
4) Chilled Beetroot soup- had a very dominating Beetroot flavor-I did not like it much.Aﾯﾾﾾﾽ2/5
5) Healthy pizza Gastronomica- made from whole wheat, super thin crust pizza and with loads of fresh veggies with the least amount of cheese on top. 3.5/5
6) Lemon sorbet- a palate cleanser, totally loved the mango based sorbet with a hint of lemon in it. 5/5
7) Dal Gastronomica- was basically Dal Makhni re-baptised as DalAﾯﾾﾾﾽGastronomica. Tasted okayish, could have been better if it was slow cooked for a little longer time. Lacked something on which I can’t put my finger on.Aﾯﾾﾾﾽ3/5
8) Butter Chicken Kulcha- was something innovative and different that I tried that day-with chunks of butter chicken on the kulcha. Could have eaten this without any gravy too.Aﾯﾾﾾﾽ5/5
9) Ferrero Rocher Gulab Jamun- the most awaited course of that dinner- being a crazy dessertarian- I was so looking forward to this part, sadly it was a major let down, the gulab jamun was under cooked and somehow, the chocolate part was not in sync with the gulab jamun. 2/5
aﾯﾾﾾﾽ?Ambience- 5/5 totally loved the interiors. We all sat on the combined tables facing the wine bottle embedded wall and the bar.
aﾯﾾﾾﾽ?Value for Money-AﾯﾾﾾﾽCan’t comment since it was an invite. And the take away Rara Meat Sloppy Joe burger was for 500INR.
aﾯﾾﾾﾽ?Revisit-AﾯﾾﾾﾽYes!! Definitely for the refreshing mocktails and Rara meat sloppy joe!
