Celebrations in Style with Eros Hotel, Nehru Place

Come festive season and Eros Hotel, Nehru Place is all geared up to usher in the new years in style. I was recently invited for a sneak peek to the celebrations at the hotel and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. A giant Christmas Tree adoring the lobby, ginger bread house at the Tea Lounge and festive decoration all through the hotel set the mood right from the moment I stepped in.

The party arrangements were made at Empress of China, hotels oriental dining restaurant. The place had a large centre table set for a fine dining Christmas dinner, dim lights, loads of candles and a menu interestingly put on a Santa’s cap. It also an outdoor set-up, with ample festive lights, live singing , bar and snacks being served. It was a windy evening, but the charm of sitting outside could not be ignored. Coal stands were strategically placed to keep us warm.

Orange Mimosa was served as a welcome drink and it was amazing. Dimsums, Chicken Canopies, Salmon Rolls were being served as snacks. I personally loved the chicken canopies and dimsums. Also tried some Cold Cuts, Pita Platter and Chilli Paneer which were good too. Fun props were kept to indulge in some crazy photo opportunities. Live music added to the whole celebratory vibes and mingling with like minded friends is always a pleasure.

After chit chatting and enjoying the snacks and a couple of drinks, we moved inside for our fine dining 3 course. Mushroom Cappuccino along with Prawn Harissa, Chicken Tartare and Tandoori Raan Phyllo were served first. The Mushroom Cappuccino was delicious. Out of the starters platter, I loved Chicken Tartare and Raan Phyllo, they both were simply amazing. I didn’t like the prawn much.

For mains there was a choice of Lamb Loin, Rolled Lasagne and Indian Sea Bass. I settled for Rolled Lasagne although the Lamb Loin and Sea Bass both looked equally tempting and inviting. There was roasted Turkey as well to savour and which was just fabulous.

Deconstructed Plum Cake served for dessert was extremely delectable. I loved both the presentation and taste of the same.

Post dinner, a cheese platter along with Whisky and Wine was served and it had some amazing cheese variety I must say.

I loved the dinner, the festive vibes and overall ambience of the place and I am sure you will love it too. So keep Eros Hotel in mind as you plan your new year celebrations in this week. For me its always gonna be most special place.

Sunday Dimsum Brunch at Chi Asian Cookhouse

If you are looking at spending some leisure time relaxing, sipping your favourite drink and eating a hearty meal, the Sunday Dimsum Brunch at Chi Asian Cookhouse is more than perfect for you and here are the reasons why you shouldn’t miss it

  1. You get to eat 9 varieties of dimsums and that too unlimited, isn’t this alone a good enough reason. Well for me it definitely is and that too when each one of the dimsums is so amazing.
  2. Not just dimsums but you get to enjoy a soup, and main course dishes comprising of gravies and rice & noodles, along with desserts and a cocktail/mocktail/wine of your choice from the pre-decided menu. Not just this, the menu will keep changing every month which gives you a chance to indulge in more varieties of the food.
  3. The ambience is cool, warm, vibrant and totally relaxed, which makes it even more perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
  4. The staff is friendly and hospitable and they make sure they look into all your needs. The service is very satisfactory, you won’t have to wait too long for your orders.
  5. Its very reasonably priced. You get a lavish dim sum brunch with 9 varieties of dimsums, a soup, main course, dessert and a drink for Rs 1295AI

Now coming to my experience of food, I simply loved it. Siu Mai Chicken, Spicy Chicken Dumpling, Chicken & Coriander Dumpling, Banana Leaf & Sticky Rice Minced Chicken & Fish Tausi, made for the non-veg variety. The chicken dumplings were more than perfect, I personally loved the Siu Mai Chicken the most. The Banana Leaf Sticky Rice Minced Chicken was simply out of this world, somewhat like a Sushi, yet very different in taste and presentation. This one is highly recommended because one doesn’t get to eat this variety of dims normally. And now coming to the star dish, it was the Fish Tausi, I have no words to explain this one, all I can say is don’t miss it any cost, its totally worth it. Tender pieces of fish topped with black bean sauce and aah my mouth waters while writing about it. The vegetarian dimsums were no less, Spinach & Mushroom Dumpling, Spicy Veg Dumpling, Hargao and Siu Mai. Out of these I loved the Spinach & Mushroom and Spicy Veg Dumplings.

To go along with my dimsums, I ordered a Chicken Manchow Soup, which too was amazing. For drinks I tried the Water Melon Cooler, Virgin Mary, Virgin Mojito and Tokyo Cobbler. While the drinks were good, the most surprising one for me was the Tokyo Cobbler because it was the first time ever when I enjoyed a rose flavoured drink. Most of the times rose drinks are too sweet and overpowering, but this one was extremely refreshing.

Coming to mains, I loved the fact that it didn’t  include too many choices, because after enjoying a bowl full of soup and so many dimsums, a little bit of main course is more than enough. Mao’s Chicken, Chilli Garlic Fried Rice & Mandarin Noodles made up for the main course. I thoroughly enjoyed it as the Mao Chicken was done extremely well, and the gravy went well with Garlic Fried Rice. Noodles is something I can eat anytime and hence enjoyed this too. The tastes were very authentic and I can vouch that the overall preparation of the place is very good. And hence not just the brunch but you can enjoy an excellent oriental meal at Chi Asian Cookhouse.

Darsan, the crispy fried noodles with Vanilla Ice Cream and Ice-Cream Trio were the dessert choices and I liked them both. Darsan is an authentic oriental dessert whereas Ice Cream Trio allows you to enjoy three flavours of ice-cream topped with sauces.

I really loved my culinary experience at this Dimsum Brunch and I am sure you would love it too, and now the next Sunday being the beginning of the year, make it more special by visiting Chi Asian Cookhouse, as you would be tired enough with the previous night party to cook anything on your own. So wake up at ease, freshen up and head straight for this Dimsum Brunch, sit back, and enjoy good food and drinks!

Pre-Owned Luxury Wallets – Get the Perfect Finishing Touch

Our love and fondness for great luxury handbags from Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Gucci or Bulgari, often makes us forget the chic and luxurious wallets that these brands offer. Our lack of appreciation for a great wallet is mostly because we feel that a wallet is utilitarian and hidden inside our handbag. However with changing trends, brand conscious fashionistas have begun to take great interests in wallets. I rounded off a list of authentic pre-owned luxury wallets that are readily available to buy online at best price range.

Tom Ford Zippy Wallet


The zippy wallet from Tom Ford is practical as well as chic. Its small size doesn’t hold it from providing adequate space to hold your cards and bills. The black calfskin leather with contrasting gold-tone hardware gives the wallet a fabulous and classy finishing touch. The ‘TF’ logo on the front of the wallet makes onlookers instantly recognise the brand and appreciate its design.

Chanel Black Camellia Embossed Leather Bi-Fold Wallet


Chanel produces the market’s widest array of small leather goods and fans of Chanel adore the wallets offered by the brand. The wallets made by the brand are synonymous with opulence and grandeur. Take for instance this exquisite Bi-Fold Wallet from Chanel, its pure style and craftsmanship has luxury written all over it. The black camellia embossed leather wallet is practical, functional and chic all at the same time.

Valentino Garavani Continental Wallet


This dazzling wallet from Valentino has a breadth of freshness. The color as well as the minimalist branding, makes the wallet a gorgeous piece of accessory to give you the perfect finishing touch.

Roberto Cavalli Blue Snake Skin Continental Wallet


This Roberto Cavalli wallet will make a bold fashion statement. Luxurious and practical the wallet displays the prominent Roberto Cavalli logo on the front. Its zip around wallet opens to a spacious interior which will hold your bills and cards. Crafted from snake skin the wallet will last for a long time without losing its attractiveness.

Louis Vuitton Black Monogram Multi-Color Wallet


The Louis Vuitton Eugenie wallet is a delightful creation and a timeless classic. The colourful Louis Vuitton monogram on black leather is stunning and sophisticate. The gold tone hardware gives it a classy finish while the contrasting pink interior will make onlookers look at the wallet with envy. Spacious enough the wallet can transform into a clutch for a night out in town.
