What Makes It Awesome

One8 Commune at Aerocity is a suave eatery serving Continental, Mediterranean, and Asian cuisines. It's a venture started by Virat Kohli (hence, you'll see his signature on the centre wall), and the menu has been curated by Chef Pawan Bist. Once you enter this charming space with indoor and outdoor seating, you can see that it's definitely the kind of place to chill in the evening with your girlfriends over a couple of drinks. And, although it has quite an uptown vibe, its minimal, crisp interiors and soft lighting make you feel at ease.

We ordered their best and most popular drinks; the Bronx and Corpse Reviver. While the Bronx was a pleasant gin-based cocktail with a nice tinge of orange in it, the Corpse Reviver was a cognac-based cocktail which was infused and garnished with green apple and sweet Vermouth (this is one of their retro/classic drinks). But, to be honest, the Corpse Reviver had a distinct taste that I had trouble understanding, and so sipped on my friend's Bronx more than my own drink.

You must order the mushroom dumplings! They are so well-balanced and come with a beautiful tomato garlic sauce. We love sushi and the Asparagus and Avocado ones were our favourite. The Mediterranean platter consisted of two kinds of hummus (a chickpea one, and a black bean one), falafels, pita bread along with an assortment of kebabs like fish kebab, a lamb kebab, a chicken kebab, and veggies. If you're ever confused about what to order just go ahead with their pastas and pizzas because they are on point! For dessert, we went ahead with a trusted brownie with ice cream, and it was the ideal end to a full meal.

We've also heard great things about their Budha bowl, black chicken, mock meat tacos, and Khow Suey, which is why this is going to be our order the next time we visit!

Price For Two: INR 2,500 approx

Two Things; 1.) I like to think I live life with rose coloured glasses on, but really they’re black, and I can’t see a thing. (And to be honest, that helps in unseeing the humongous sattire and mess the world is). 2.) Mostly fumbling and staggering through life as gracefully as I can, with an occasional glass of wine here and there.
