A date with Life

first_imgIn the clamour for Hauz Khas Village, that is being touted as Delhi’s new ‘the’ zone for foodies, we often miss out on the potential of Connaught Place. Yes that very same zone in Lutyen’s Delhi that has restaurants packed by officegoers during the day and families and friends occupying the chairs at night.  But sadly, CP has remained underrated and under-used in the city’s food map, even though some really good restaurants call it home. The regret came back to haunt me when I visited Life Caffe in Inner Circle recently. Even in the extremely cold winter night, when I visited this restaurant which has been intriguingly named Life Caffe, I found a few tables occupied. They have a lovely outdoor seating area complete with an open private dining room, but the chill forced us inside.

Continental, Italian, Japanese are all thrown in for good measure and I hopped skipped and jumped from one cuisine to another through the course of my meal. The food is tasty and the portions good enough to be shared.  I really enjoyed the Kolhapuri keema tarts (see recipe) which was delicious and went perfectly with the red Sula that I ordered. Ditto for the Koliwada fish fingers. The Fotomaki sushi platter though was nothing to write home about and the same goes for the New Zealand lamp chops which could be served anywhere. The Chilli prawns would get a thumbs up and so would the desserts. I gorged on the Hot magic chocolate souffle, totally throwing my diet plans away for a toss. Should be on your list next time you are eating out at CP. If only to get a life!DETAILAt: Life Caffe, B49, Inner Circle, Connaught PlaceTimings: Noon to 1am phone: 43652222Meal for two: Rs 700 without alcohollast_img
