There was a time when getting into Greater Kailash M Block Market used to be a herculean task and the fear of getting run over was real. Those days may well be on their way back, for our latest trip to the market led to some yummy finds. Here’s where to go when you stop here for a bite next.

Junglee Billee

The first thing that hits you when you enter Junglee Billi are the colours and the clash of patterns, which occupy every inch of the space. Once your eyes adjust, the kitsch grows on you and you can’t help but be a little entranced. When we found out Nida Mahmood was behind the décor, it explained everything.

The menu {curated by Chef Saby} is a little perplexing. Fusion is the theme. From spicy capsicum-infused cocktails to modified chaat to desserts such as the Phirni Crème Brulee and the Caramel Custard served with Bombay Halwa, every dish is a surprise; mostly, good. They’ve kept the entire dining experience a pretty one right up till the end, when your bill is presented inside a gorgeous jewelled clutch.

Wagh Bakri Tea Lounge

waghfinal The 3 Newest Kids on the {GK} M BlockIt is an unintentionally well-kept secret that Wagh Bakri Chai {hamesha rishtey banaye. Remember the ad?} has a number of tea lounges across the city {find an outlet here}.Their most recent outlet opened its doors in GK around four months ago. Go here for a wide selection of well-brewed teas {we’re partial to the Cinnamon Lemon} along with a small snack to keep you going. We’d suggest steering clear of the tea cake {it’s only a slightly better version of the Britannia variety} but the paninis and sandwiches seem to tell another story. They also serve a Vanilla Ice Cream Tea which is next on our to-try list.

You can also take home a variety of loose tea, tea bags and readymade iced tea mixes.

Price: Starting at INR 70 for a cup of tea

getafix The 3 Newest Kids on the {GK} M Block

The name sent us in state of nostalgia, to the world of Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix but alas, this new cafe in GK has absolutely nothing to do with the lively comic series. What it does offer is a lively cafe, heavy on fresh and healthy ingredients. Visit this for a quick burger {we hear quinoa is the specialty}, pizza, pasta or one of their signature smoothies. With names like Khal Strawgo {mango, strawberry and basil} and The Green Goddess {plum, green tea and grapes}, we’re expecting great things. Add chia seeds, flax seeds and wheatgrass powder for an extra kick. We’re bookmarking Getafix to ‘getourfix’ of healthy along with tasty.
