We’ve always associated CP with shopping {Palika and Janpath FTW}, Keventers milkshake and a myriad of street food. However, the last couple of months have seen a sudden influx of restaurants and cafes in the area suddenly giving us a world of options to choose from, after, of course, we’ve worked up an appetite going round and round the {inner and outer} circles.

Wolfgang & Company

The interiors of Wolf Gang have our hearts. Everything’s done in wooden accents, giving it the feel of an old-world whisky bar in Europe; a middle-aged gentleman smoking on his pipe wouldn’t be out of place here. Sample their mocktail shots; we liked the jamun one the most.

When it comes to food, they’re promising a plethora of Middle Eastern, European, Italian and fusion fare. Their Mushroom Galouti Kebab and Hyderabadi Risotto are must haves.

Teddy Boy

Vintage decor, plush leather couches and gentlemen in stylish tuxedos; Teddy Boy is almost like a doorway to the bygone Edwardian era, though their food is all about Indian tadka. 

Choose from dishes like Kasundi Chicken Skewers, Prawn Schezwan and Keema Patties. Vegetarians can munch on the Stuffed Tandoori Paneer. Also worth trying is their Chocolate Golgappa.

Complete with a huge banyan tree and truck bar, Tamasha offers a mix of Indian, Middle Eastern and classic continental dishes. Confused about where to start? We’d go with the Tandoor Chicken salad, Chicken Chettinad, Spinach and Mushroom Dim Sum, and Paneer 65 Bao.

Odeon Social

Every table at Odeon Social has its own typewriter and an old-school telephone. A 360-degree look at the place will have you checking out trophies and books in a large wall cabinet, numerous wooden boards bearing names and marks of students. The menu is pretty much the same as Hauz Khas Social and Def Col Social, though we’re totally loving this place solely for its ambience. The swing in the balcony is our favourite.

Cafe OMG

Cafe OMG‘s decor is meant to represent heaven and hell. They’ve got a pretty indoor seating complete with a baby elephant hanging from the ceiling; it’s quite surreal. If the weather’s nice, you can also take a seat on the terrace.

Confused on what to order? Share your taste preferences with the bartender to land up with a cocktail you’ll love, and definitely don’t miss out on the hummus and pita platter.

Bunta Bar

This brand new bar in CP promises great food as well as drinks. Done up in quirky hues {the bunta bottles are lit by LED lights; the DJ console is in the shape of a truck}, its a great place to unwind at.

When not day-dreaming, Navni likes to spend her time reading, writing blog posts for herself, shopping online, mollycoddling her labrador, discovering all there is to eat and drink in the city and trying to bake the perfect cake.
