3 Pegs Down- Eat, Drink, Enjoy!

After a shopping spree in Saket, rather than settling down for the food court at the mall or the already explored restaurants within the mall, we came out of the mall and walked up to check out 3 pegs down, located just around the backside of Select City Walk, Saket. In the day time, it seemed like a quaint place, just perfect to spend some time chilling with friends and enjoying some good food and drinks that too on amazing offers.

We began our culinary experience with Spicy Chicken & Corn Salad, Family Nachos Plank and Chargrilled Mushrooms. The salad was simply amazing, loved the spicy dressing with chicken which was perfectly balanced with the sweetness of corn.

The Nachos Plank, served the four of us and was more than sufficient, it was tasty as well and the chargrilled mushrooms are definitely a must try, grilled mushrooms tossed in tahini sauce served with hummus, pita and garlic made for an unusual yet amazing combination and kudos to the chef for coming up with such an innovative combination.

Murg Malai Tikka, Safed Til Paneer Tikka and Lamb Seekh Kebab are also not to be missed as each of them was one better than the other and simply drooling experiences. The Paneer Tikka literally melted in the mouth and so did the Chicken Malai Tikka and Lamb Seekh. They were so tender and delicate and full of flavour that one can’t get over them easily. I know that I am going after all of them very soon.

We also tried the 4 Seasons Pizza and Spaghetti Aglio Olio, but for me, both these dishes could have been better or may be my expectations were raised after the scrumptious starters.

For the mains, we tried, Achari Vada Pao, Pulled Chicken with Pao, Veg Burritos, Dal Makhani and Lahori Kadai Paneer. The Achari Vada Pao and Pulled Chicken with Pao are must haves, they were both really good. Even the veg burritos were nice, but I am personally not too fond of burritos. The Kadai Paneer and Dal were well prepared and with assorted breads like Lachha Parantha, Mirchi Parantha and Garlic Naan, they tasted amazing and made for a complete meal.

 

They serve some amazing cocktails and mocktails too and have offers running all through the day, so that you can make the most of it.

Now coming to desserts, we tried the Tiramisu and Payasam, but somehow both the desserts did not impress me. Though the chef explained that they were not prepared in the traditional manner and had his own twists incorporated in the recipe, I somehow feel somethings are better original and those tastes, textures and flavours should not be tempered with. But overall it was a day well spent, enjoying hearty conversations over hearty meal and drinks.

Satiating Italian Food Cravings at Amalfi..!!

Italian food is typically very common one when come to think of, because all we relate Italian food is to Pizzas and Pastas, but true authentic Italian Food is way beyond all this and also amazingly delicious.

Thankfully, I have an option to taste the goodness of Italian Food, just near to my home at Amalfi. Amalfi is an authentic Italian restaurant situated in the M Block Market of Greater Kailash-2.

To begin with I opted for Insalata Mista al Formaggio, Insalata typically means an Italian Salad. Mix Lettuce, Green Apples, Asparagus tossed in Agro Dolce Dressing with Crumbled Feta and Walnuts is what comprised of this amazingly colourful looking and delicious salad.

For Antipasti, which means first course of the Italian meal, we opted for Souffle Alla Gorgonzola, which was served with Porcini Mushroom Sauce. I can easily say that it was one of the best cheese souffle I have ever eaten and I can really go back for it anytime. It was so so delectable, that knowing the calories, I could not resist myself from indulging in it. We also had the Pollo Al Pesto, pan seared chicken tossed in pesto sauce and served with lettuce leaves. This too was good, but the taste of Souffle just lingered on.

For Primi Piatti, which includes Pizzas or Pastas for the first course, we opted for Pizza Basilico E Bocconcini, a thin crust pizza topped with homemade tomato sauce, bocconcini, jalapeños, olives, sun-dried tomatoes and parmesan cheese and also the Affumicato Pizza Di Pollo, a thin crust pizza with mushrooms, smoked chicken and cheese. Both the pizzas were delectable, though I preferred the non-veg one.

Then we opted for Scottato in Padella Basa Con Marinara, Risotto Con Misto Funghi, Spiedini Di Pollo Alla Pancetta and Tiger Prawns in Lemon Parsley Sauce. The pan seared basa in marinara sauce served with mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables was amazing, subtle but very nice taste. The Risotto cooked in white wine and mushrooms was another splendid dish and I loved it. I did not enjoy the prawns much but the bacon wrapped chicken skewers with honey prune chilli sauce was the sure shot winner dish for that evening. It was flavoursome and delicious. And my plate looked so so tempting with all these amazing dishes, that for sometime, you just wanna look at the food and not even eat it. Wines to go with the palate were served alongside and it made the foodie experience even more enriching.

To bring our culinary journey to a sweet end, we indulged in Tiramisu, the traditional Italian dessert and also Fondente Al Cioccolato. Both of the desserts were outstanding, I loved every bite of them truly could keep on and on, especially the Tiramisu. Overall, I had a great experience, the only disappointment being slow service, which I am sure they can improvise upon.
