Select CITYWALK, My Square- the Food Court

By Anubhav Sapra


The temperature in Delhi has touched another high of 45.5 degrees. In this heat wave, the best place to relish the different varieties of food is at My Square, the food court in Select CITYWALK, Saket.

The interiors are nicely done with the Happily Unmarried store greeting the food lovers with its quirky and funny gifts. The food court is surrounded by the food stalls with the beverages and dessert section at the centre. The seating arrangements are well laid and quite comfortable. An area is marked for performances, where the food can be relished with a dose of entertainment.

Although not functional, the food court is set to attach an i pad to each table where the menu will be listed and the orders and payment can be made right there instead of standing in the queue. I got my My Square card recharged and explored the food court which has something to satisfy the taste buds of everyone across different age groups. From North Indian, Italian, Mexican to South Indian, the variety of delicacies on offer is huge.

The iconic and the best South Indian restaurant in Delhi, Sarvana Bhawan has opened its third outlet in Select City Walk after Connaught place and Janpath. The prices and quality of food is outstanding. The North Indian, Punjabi cuisine restaurant Pind Baluchi has good thali options.

The New York Style, wood fired, create your own customized Pizza at Fat Lulu and Mediterranean inspired Pita Pit’s healthy sandwiches are popular for quick food. For calorie conscious people, Lean Chef has an interesting menu. The calories of all the dishes are listed – from no oil, no fat veggie burger (387 Kcal) to chicken hummus burger (480 Kcal).

Moving from the low calories food at the Lean Chef one can find The Toddy Shop where the food is rich in calories. The menu at The Toddy Shop has been curated from the Chef’s family kitchen, old Syrian Christian households, and from Hindu and Muslim hearths across Kerala.

The other food joints in the food court are Rrala’s Habibi, Lebanese and Moroccan specialty and the famous Mexican grill – Mex it up. At the corner of the food court is a food truck- Wanchai by Kylin serving the most famous street food of Delhi, Momos, noodles and other bowl meals.

For street food lovers, SS on the go has Chowpatty Pav bhaji, Bombay Sev puri and Purani Dilli’s famous breakfast dish Bedmi aloo and Chole bhature.

At the centre is a beverage, desserts and candies section. There is Refuel to fuel your body with shakes, smoothies and fresh juices, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf serves beverages that is going to rejuvenate one’s soul in the heat waves of Delhi.

My Square also has a variety of option for desserts and sweets. Kulfiano with 20 stick kulfis are there to complement with freshly made gelatos at gelato Italiano. The must try at gelato Italiano are Madagascar fine chocolate, New York Cheese cake and Royal Kulfi. SS on the go serves the decent paan kulfi.

CBTL: Making your Christmas Delicious

By Priyali Prakash

Christmas celebrations are on in full swing and restaurants are coming up with various novelties to make this occasion memorable for their customers. The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, a well known chain with multiple outlets across Delhi, has come up with a special limited edition holiday special menu that is available till 31st December and goes perfectly with the spirit of the festive season.

Plum Cake, the classic Christmas dish, is available during the celebration period here. It comes with a twist of a dominant cardamom flavour. If you like that, you will surely enjoy this cake.

Other Christmas delicacies here include the Yule Log cake, a delicious chocolate cake for all chocolate lovers and the Stollen Bread, which though comes topped with icing sugar, is a little sour in flavour.

altAkV3EMV6xLWFXmYGTfEpu6CIgt_aU-TsGCrSVhD1Q3sCLiving up to the name of the place, CBTL has introduced new flavours in their coffee. Cinnamon mocha cappuccino and Spiced honey cappuccino come with a dusting of cinnamon powder with chocolate and honey respectively and, of course, strong coffee. All coffees at CBTL are conventionally served with brown sugar on the side and the tea comes with white sugar.

Apart from the Christmas menu, CBTL has also introduced new dishes in its regular menu which is a practice every six months. This time, the new dishes are quesadillas and wraps. The cheese and corn quesadillas have a lightly seasoned filling and are served with sour cream, pickled veggies and salsa on the side. The salsa is amazingly flavourful. The chicken wraps come with the same salsa and have a filling that tastes like any spicy Indian curry.

altAp6o1xPrhokcAbO6iI3tQeNCp9Xh6IcZlgJDaQum1jRpOther desserts introduced in the regular menu are baked mascarpone cheesecake that comes with cherry compote on the top and a bottom that isn’t quite crunchy for a regular cheesecake. The hazelnut mousse cake is a little on the dense side but is full of flavours.

Apart from the new introductions in the menu, CBTL has come up with gift hampers for sale and these are quite popular with the corporates. These hampers are priced at Rs. 450 plus taxes and CBTL offers discounts on bulk bookings. Hampers are available at all CBTL outlets across Delhi till the end of this month.

CBTL is putting up a good show to make the festive season delicious for its customers. Kudos to the team!
