Chaayos Opens Its Doors at GK2 M Block Market..!!

Chaayos recently opened its doors at M-Block GK 2 Market and also launched a 7 star new menu. This menu comprised of special teas, both hot and cold, some mouth melting savories and teacakes. I was invited for a review with my other foodie friends and I am grateful to my friend and a co-blogger Radhika for that, do follow her page on facebook 

We began our tasting session with ‘Desi Sab Kuch Chai’. It was a very typical masala chai infused with spices like Cinnamon, Cardamom, Ginger, and Basil etc. A perfect companion for those rainy evenings or winter mornings. ‘Assorted Pakoras’ were served along with the chai and it made the perfect combination. The onion pakoras are just worth it, you will want more and more of them, they were so addictive. Its definitely a must try dish on the menu. Along with it we were served ‘Bun Maska’ and ‘Egg Bun’. I tried the Egg Bun and really liked it. It was soft and delectable. The taste was mild, as the egg was not loaded with too many spices; it was just perfect, and as soft and mild as the bun itself.

Next up was a specialty tea, it was a lot of fun, because we weren’t told about the tea, we had to taste it and identify the ingredients. So after the first sip itself, I could gather that it was a honey lemon tea with a dash of ginger. It was amazing, and it had a very refreshing aroma, perfect for a sore throat or just to soothe it. From all the teas that I tasted, this one was my personal favorite. It came the ‘Loaded Chicken Cheese Max’. This one is a lethal combination, trust me. Don’t think much just go for it and I am sure you will love them both. There was a Paneer version too, but I gave it a skip, who wants to eat paneer when you can have chicken 🙂

And now it was time for their very famous ‘Kulad Chai’, which was served in actual kulads. I am not very fond of teas otherwise, but the aroma of this tea made me go for it and I am glad I did. Its awesome. Those fond of tea, will love this preparation.

The next tea that I tried was one of the most unique teas I have ever tried. It was the ‘Aam Papad Tea’. As the name suggests, it felt as if I was drinking a liquid form of Aam Papad. It had exactly the same taste, and aam papad is something I relish occasionally with the fear of having a sore throat. But just the way guys on TV promote Mango Drinks saying that the mango season never really gets over, you can similarly relish the taste of aam papad with this tea without any apprehensions. I loved it. From the savories, next we tried was the ‘Butter Chicken Wrap’ and ‘Kadhai Paneer Wrap’, I must say that the filling in both the wraps was very different, It was really loaded and every bite of it was heavenly. I wont really reveal what all it had; all I can say is that you must try it.

Last but not the least, was the ‘Thandi Chai’. They have about 3-4 flavors available in the same, what I tried was the Saunf flavor. After trying all the savories and filling myself up, this saunf flavoured thandi chai seemed just perfect. I quite liked it and I am looking forward to try the other flavours on my next visit there.

For dessert, there was ‘Bananaa Cake’ and ‘Lemon Cake’. The cakes were nice, but a little too dense for my liking. I know I know, I am little nasty when it comes to reviewing desserts, but what to do, I am a baker myself so I end up highlighting the negatives first. But nevertheless, the cakes weren’t bad at all.

I had a lot of fun with my foodie friends and now its your turn..You must surely plan a visit to your nearest Chaayos and more specially this newly opened one in M Block GK 2 Market and enjoy a tea of your preference with some amazing food. I just love the warmth and vibrancy this place exudes, its so comfortable that you almost feel as if sitting at home with a cup of tea and some pakoras.. bliss!

Reebok Fight Night at Select City Walk- Engaging Fitness Enthusiasts

Strengthening its position as the leading fitness brand in the country and to celebrate the growing enthusiasm around MMA, Reebok India organized a real MMA fighting cage to enthrall fitness enthusiasts with the world’s most popular sport of fitness. The ‘Reebok FIGHT NIGHT’ was organized at Select City Walk Mall, New Delhi.

The ‘Fight Night’ witnessed nine intense fights, among 18 amateur fighters, trainers & athletes from the MMA community. Renowned MMA expert and Reebok Master Trainers Siddharth Singh and Deepak Karai engaged hundreds of fitness enthusiasts in a power packed MMA master class that covered tips to champion the mental and physical groundwork needed to become a successful MMA fighter, and the secret behind keeping one’s head in the game when on the ropes.

The excitement was palpable as the event kicked off with a one of its kind MMA flash mob by Reebok MMA trainers. Those who volunteered to participate in the MMA master class definitely returned home with their head high as it takes guts to stand in a ring with another person knowing that the impending skirmish can get ugly. Participants were drenched in sweat at the end of the master class that focused on essential self-defense and striking skills from Thai kick boxing.

Though still at a nascent stage in India, combat training and MMA have seen great response over the last couple of years. Reebok has been at the forefront of defining this trend and today’s Fight Night event was our attempt to further popularize this fitness sport in India. It has been a fulfilling evening as we have successfully engaged with Fitness enthusiasts to adopt our ‘fitness is life’ philosophy and encouraged them to train with us.”

To promote Mixed Martial Arts, Reebok entered into a partnership with the largest Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Company in the world – the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC®) last year.
