New Delhi Palate Fest Reimagined & Imagine Fest 2016 rescheduled in Delhi

Post the Prime Minister’s revelation on 8th November regarding the new currency policy, Palate & Imagine Fest has been rescheduled to 10th – 12th of February, 2017. The Authorities behind the festival have arrived at this decision after in-depth internal discussion and strongly felt that it would not be fair to the participants and partners owing to enforcing a cash withdrawal limit.

In spite of being completely prepared to mount the festivals, the promoters of Palate & Imagine Fests felt deeply compelled to arrive at this decision considering the recent development and to ensure success to the concerned parties.

The Fashion show opened with brands like Marks & Spencer, Scullers, United Colors of Benetton, Creyate, Fab India, Gems, Satya Paul, Trends and was choreographed and presented by Fashion Guru- Prasad Bidapa. Latest trends of High-Fashion were displayed by International Retail giants and popular Indian Brands. I personally loved the Satya Paul and Fab India collection. I couldn’t get my eyes off those elegantly draped sarees that the models carried with a lot of finesse. The collection by UCB showed a lot of vibrancy and I am sure the youth will love it.

He was asked on his idea behind bringing up the brand and here is what he had to say

Dhoni felicitated the seven winners of the online contest along with Mr. Arun Pandey, Chairman & MD of Rhiti Group (parent company of Seven) and Rahul Taneja, Chief Business Officer of Jabong. Speaking at the event, M.S. Dhoni, Brand Ambassador-Seven told his fans, “Seven has been my lucky number. I was born on the seventh day of the seventh month. I became the captain of India’s ODI team in the seventh year of the twenty first century. I am happy to be sharing my lucky charm with you with my brand Seven by MS Dhoni. Fitness has always been one of my top priorities and is ingrained in the brand ethos of Seven. The SEVEN ambition is all about making fitness an intrinsic part of every city, every town, every school, every home.  In my opinion, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to take your fitness seriously. All you need is the motivation to lead an Active Lifestyle.”

Rahul Taneja, Chief Business Officer, Jabong, said, “Sportswear is one of the top selling categories on Jabong for many years now and we are excited to offer Seven by MS Dhoni to our discerning shoppers. India has never had a more successful captain and Mahi’s grit and dedication is evidently the hallmark of the brand Seven, which fills in an essential value gap in the active and health-conscious lifestyle category. We are also excited about Rhiti Group’s plans to continue to launch even more innovative designs and technology-driven products in future and will keep expanding our assortment with the latest in sports fashion.”

Soda Bottle Opener Wala Launches New Menu…More Delectable Dishes to Relish..!!

We are all now aware of the authenticity of Parsi and Iranian Cafes that have been brought to Delhi by Soda Bottle Opener Wala and there would be hardly anyone who would have not tried their lip smacking food. But going forward, here people not just serve real tasty authentic food, but also keep experimenting with food and bring in new items to their menu to delight their customers even more.

img_0152

img_0071

I recently went to attend a bloggers meet for this newly launched menu of theirs at the Cyber Hub Outlet and it was a very pleasant visit indeed.

My culinary experience started with Adu Tedhu Baby Corn Fry, these thin slices of baby corn fried in a crispy batter, these were a real treat. Mostly I have eaten fried baby corns where in the full baby corn is fried, but in this case they have further sliced the baby corns like chips and then fried and hence the crispiness is far better. The green chutney dip and mayo dip that its served along with, are perfect companions to the fried baby corns and trust me you can’t keep your hands off this one.

img_0085

I also had a warm chicken soup along with this, which too was perfect.

img_0076

Next I tried Carnovire’s Bhel which was a bhel loaded with chunks of chicken and ham, which made it extremely interesting. It comes with both green chutney and saints that you can add as per your taste, mix it well and you are ready for a delectable food experience. This too is a must try.

img_0097

Up next was Chicken Chilli Cheese Pav, which was scrumptious. I loved it, the pavs were so soft and buttery and the topping of chicken with loads of cheese was simply amazing. You cannot afford to miss this one.

img_0102

Followed by this were the Boiled Egg Sandwiches, prepared in true Bombaiya style, they were amazing.

img_0111

For the mains I tried Tarela Rainbow Trout and Bombaiya Chicken Biryani. The trout was out of this world, marinated with mixed spices, this was a real delight. This is definitely one of those things that will take me back to Soda Bottle Opener Wala, that too very soon. In contrast the biryani was mildly spiced but flavoursome.

img_0137

img_0110

There were Jumbo Prawns too, which I didn’t try, but they looked inviting enough for me to try them the next time.

img_0131

For vegetarians, there was Paneer Sanju Baba with Malai Parantha and Khatu Meethu Pumpkin. They too looked delectable.

img_0113

img_0117

For drinks I settled for the Raspberry Soda, because thats been a favourite ever since I tried Soda Bottle Opener Wala the first time.

img_0079

There was also a new soon to be launched cocktail that we got to try, BumSuckerWala which is mixed with vodka, frozen raspberry, and thyme and is an ode to this wonderful Parsi family from Karachi who made drinking Raspberry Soda popular there. It was refreshingly nice.

img_0095

Coming to my most favourite part of the meal, desserts, there were 3 wonderful things that I tried. The Caramel Custard, White Chocolate Brownie with Ice Cream and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheese Cake and I loved all three of them. The white chocolate brownie was the most surprising, because of the simple reason that we are used to the dark chocolate brownies, so both the colour and taste were very different for this one.

img_0148

img_0144

To conclude, I had a wonderful experience at Soda Bottle Opener Wala as always, the new menu just made it worth while multi folds. So don’t waste time thinking, head straight to SBOW and I am sure you will have a great time. Bon Appetite !
