Tata Hexa Experience Center- An event I am glad I attended..!

Tata Hexa recently organized a TATA HEXA EXPERIENCE CENTER with a gamut of activities under one roof. Not just activities but the experience center also saw an amalgamation of various Tata brands like Taj Resorts, Tata Capital, Tanishq, Croma Retail etc. img_1953

Talking of activities, there was of course a showcasing of the New Tata Hexa, a beast of an SUV and one could experience the strength and features of the car in more than just one way. There was an opportunity to test drive the car, but more exciting option was an off roading experience where in a special track with apt hurdles, dirt tracks, ramps and stair case was created on the spacious HUDA grounds in sector 29, Gurgaon. img_1978

While watching the cars going this track, climbing up the stairs, sloping down the ramp, entering a ditch of water and twisting and twirling on the planks, I thought to myself that it was going to be one hell of a ride and scary too. But when I actually went for it, it rather turned out to be a very smooth one. The grip, balancing and strength of the car made it all so easy. It was a fantabulous ride and I thoroughly enjoyed it. img_1983

Other than the driving experiences, there was an overload of entertainment with live bands, celebrity engagements and fun zone for kids where they could play interesting games both on screens and off screens. There were a lot of branded food stall like Pizza Hut, Burger King and Karims. But the best part that I loved about the event was a dog adoption zone; I mean what a wonderful thought and collaboration. So while you book your car, you can also take a living gift back home and give them your love and shelter. For me it was truly a delightful concept.

A lot of other fun activities were also happening in the arena, like a cool gif station where in your pics were converted into a gif on the spot, there was also an instant photo opp. Celebrities like Rocky & Mayur, Manish Paul and many others also graced the event with their presence. The event was spread across 3 days and made for a truly enjoyable outing for the entire family.

Fusion Bistro- A true fusion of global cuisine!

With restaurants creating more confusion in the name of FUSION, its very hard to find a place which actually remains true to the word, but better late than never, I actually came across this wonderful restaurant that boasts of a fusion of cuisines under one roof rather than fusion of ingredients. Welcome to FUSION BISTRO, which is an amalgamation of cuisines from across the globe maintaining their authenticity in every way.

This place is loveable from the word GO, the moment you enter, and you fall in love with the ambience and simplicity of the place. Minimalistic, comfortable yet impactful décor, ample lighting and a huge space spread across 2 floors, is what makes this place different right from the start. These days we see an overload of theme decoration, concept restraunts, cluttered spaces and hence a lot of times the focus shifts from the most important thing FOOD to making the place stand out in terms of decoration only, but thankfully Fusion Bistro is truly different.

Now coming to the main thing Food, we started our culinary journey with Thailand and opted for Chicken Tom Kha Soup, it was a creamy coconut milk based soup spiced with ginger and lemon grass. Though I am not too fond of Thai, but I loved this one. To go along with the soup, we ordered Warm Chicken, Avocado and Fresh Leaves Salad and it was wonderful too. Loved the combination of chicken and avocado with garlic dressing and crunchy fresh leaves.

For drinks we tried Fruit Punch and Watermelon Lychee Punch and both of them were nice and refreshing.

Next on our table was Penne Pasta with Mixed Sauce and Marinated Stuffed Chicken Breast, a continental combination worth exploring. The pasta was just perfect and getting the tanginess of tomatoes along with creaminess of cheese was a culinary delight for me. The stuffed chicken with mushroom sauce and goat cheese along with mashed potatoes..mmm.. something I love completely. My mouth waters even while writing about it, it was yumminess overloaded. This is surely a must try.

Next we moved to trying some authentic oriental food and ordered Chicken in Soy Garlic Sauce and Chicken Hakka Noodles and I can say that they were easily the best hakka noodles I have eaten in a long time. The Chicken was delicious as well.

Settling for Indian in the last we ordered, Non Veg Kebab Platter, which comes with a generous serving of Dal Makhani and Raita as well, the Hyderabadi Biryani and Awadhi Chicken. The platter was simply amazing, it had chicken malai tikka, seekh kebab and fish tikka and all of them were succulent, tender and full of taste, and the dal was awesome too. I loved the way biryani was served covered with a hot tandoori roti; it just looked irresistible even though it was covered. After lifting the roti away, the biryani looked even more scrumptious and so it was. The flavours were perfect, it was served with a salan and raita and salan was the only thing which I didn’t quite like, rest everything was fabulous. Chicken Awadhi had rich gravy, which was similar to butter chicken in texture, but the taste was very distinct.

Now coming to my favourite part of the meal, desserts, they have a decent variety to choose from, but it’s my suggestion that they include some Indian Desserts in the menu and also more options of non-chocolaty desserts for those who don’t like chocolate much. Nevertheless I love chocolate, so for me it was good enough, we ordered a Tiramisu and Death by Chocolate. The tiramisu was extremely delicious and death by chocolate was true to its name, I can really die for it, it was so so so delicious. I loved it.

I overall had a lot of fun visiting this place and I highly recommend it, you must give it a shot and I am sure you will love it.

A special mention for the entire staff of Fusion Bistro, they were very friendly, warm and hospitable and knew their menu and recommendations very well. I also happened to meet Mr Arvind, owner of the place and he too came across as a very warm person.

I am definitely visiting them soon for another culinary journey and make sure you do it as well. Cheers !!

Undoubtedly, the festival has everything under one roof as it also bids for ‘Paramotoring’, an enthralling adventure aero sport with adequate safety measures.

Not to forget, LURM is according each possible aspect of ‘sensible partying’ and CSR activities. Where merrymaking and cleanliness do not go hand in hand very well, LURM Festival 2016 assures the prospect and takes up the heavy challenge of doing just the opposite. Irrespective of being a high power entertainment event, no use of plastic is encouraged; littering is not excusable and will attract penalty.  Festival team is taking extra measures to save paper to the optimum level – tear their business cards or event tickets; you will get a seed to plant a tree. No brochures will be given out for event details, everything will be digitized – on app and on screen details during event. It will even establish water purifier systems to provide water for no cost. Also each item available at the festival is completely saleable whilst the sale proceeds move to concern artisan.
