The Artful Baker- A Sweet End

The Artful baker, a Patisserie located in Khan Market, New Delhi.

I have honestly heard so much about this place and have visited it twice and loved it both the times. 
Here i am writing my last blogpost of 2015 and ending this year on a sweet note. 

What I Ordered :-

1. Red Velvet Cake
2. Chocolate Muffin
3. Monte Cristo
4. Pastry Cheesecake

Red Velvet was made out of beetroot and rose and no added color. This was the best red velvet i have ever had, completely droolworthy. 

Their Chocolate Muffin was very yum with a syringe filled with chocolate syrup to give the muffin more gooey feel. Soft and heavenly

Monte Cristo was another signature dessert I had here and it was amazing.The Belgian Chocolate centre which blends so well with the outside wall of dark chocolate and the crunchy base just gives the entire dessert a zing. 

Pastry Cheesecake, a dessert suggested by the staff which was delicious. The crispy layer of pastry which was filled with cheese was oh so delectable. This one turned out to be one of the best desserts out of  these four. 



I wish you all a Happy and Sweet New Year.
Hope to have you all with me the next year as well and we shall together spread the love of food.

Barcelos- The Ultimate Food Cruise

Visited Barcelos, Khan Market today.
 Khan Market is like the hub for good pricey restaurants which serves some amazing food. I always have so much of fun when I go to Khan Market because it just makes you feel so blessed to see all your favorite restaurants at the same place. 

Barcelos is one of those talked about portuguese restaurant which serves some brilliant food. 
If i begin with the decor, it was pretty, calm and spacious. They've got two floors for the customers and the entire atmosphere is nice. Very quick service and the staff is aware about what exactly is the dish and what are its qualities. 

Let's begin with all that I ate here :-


Had this oh so delish dish called veri peri grilled chicken. This is their very famous dish and is served with one or two sides. I ordered for coleslaw salad as a side. 
So, this chicken piece is 1/4 and is sufficient for two hungry people. Loved the sauce and the delectable taste it had. If you don't like spicy food, then you might try their mild peri grilled chicken. 
The chicken was tender and juicy and was melting in my mouth within seconds. Also, if you are a die hard spicy food fan then try their peri peri grilled chicken to give a kick to your taste buds. If you are planning to go to Barcelos, don't forget to try out this appetizing dish and satitate your tastebuds. 

The coleslaw salad was really yummy and its taste was so on point. 
This dish was a complete package for a chicken lover.


Barcelos has also started some new and trendy boozy shakes which are your favorite tiramisu or chocolate shake mixed with alcohol to give you the yummy taste of shakes and the awesome feeling of booze. They've got an entire page filled with various sangrias and they all look very interesting. Definitely try their tiramisu boozy shake. 


So, these are another very famous inventions started by Barcelos. These beautiful looking mini burgers will just make you fall in love with burgers more and more. My favorite was the red one. They've all got the same grilled chicken inside it and they are called the world's healthiest burgers. Give them a try and experience something new. 
As a side i took regular fries and they turned out pretty delicious and the dip along with it was kickass.


My final dish at barcelos was this gorgeous chicken sizzler. Love the veggies inside it and the chicken was too yummy. Filled my tummy with happiness and satisfaction. 

MISSFOODIEDIARIES wishes you  Happy New Year in Advance.

Hines is a privately owned international real estate investment, development and management firm which was founded in 1957 and is currently active in 19 countries world wide. 

They had organised a Christmas Lunch at One Horizon Centre, Golf Course Road, Gurgaon. This was a one-stop gastronomic experience for all the people attending it. Basically, One Horizon Centre has many offices situated in it which includes Coca Cola, Zomato, Apple, etc., and all the employees of these offices were invited here to enjoy the various types of eateries that were present there. Within 2-3 hours the employees enjoyed some hot food and cold winter breeze and got a little peace from their hectic office schedules.

There were many restaurants and food trucks who were present there to provide some of the best food to the people. Some of these were, Koyla Kebabs, Spice Saga, Lov'n Oven, Dessert Art etc. And some cute little food trucks like Eggjactly, Drifter's Cafe, Frugurpop, What The Truck,
 Rocket Chefs, etc/.

To begin with, I tried some delectable kakori kebabs and seekh kebabs from Koyla Kebab. The best part is to watch these kebabs being cooked and that brilliant aroma that fills the entire air around you. Their Kakori Kebab was droolworthy and the spices were so on point. Koyla Kebab brings to life traditional old school 'MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH' Kebabs.

After that I visited the most talked about food truck i.e. Drifter's Cafe. A truck which serves some excellent food. They keep in mind to provide affordable gourmet meals into everyday life using fresh locally sourced produce. Their food is wholesome, affordable and flavorful. By using the concept of 'meal in a box' these guys provide some really delicious dishes without compromising on the flavor or cleaniness of the food. 

Tried their Basil and Mint mojito, water chestnut and corn dimsums, spring rolls and my very favorite the Balinese fish curry with rice. 

If you're a fish lover, their balinese fish curry is something you should definitely have and it will leave you wanting for more.

Next stop was the Rocketchefs Food Truck. They aptly combines food knowledge, hospitality expertise, back-end support and a strong technological backbone to offer a cutting edge, and delightful food experience to its customers. Tried their Pepperoni Pizza which oh so delicious. It was loaded with pepperoni, bacon, and cheeeeese. 
The thin crust pizza was loved by so many people who were there during the entire event. 

Ate a very delish and heavenly Khao Suey from Spice Saga.
 Spice Saga is a stage where chef's stir up traditional spices to conjure a meal that is steeped in India's tradition and history. 

Dessert Art by Deepali Modi had the best fudge brownie. Dessert Art was actually a sweet gesture for friends and family members which slowly turned into a profession and was officially launched on october'13. 

Their Fudge Brownie, Apple Cinnamon cake and their Banoffee Pie are the desserts you should not miss. 

To end this perfect day I had a popsicle from Frugurpop which looked so appealing and tasted even better. These guys have a soothing blend of the natural sweetness of fruits spiced with dashes of citrus flavors and has become a gigantic revolution in the world of icy desserts. 

I hope you had a great christmas and i wish you all a Happy New Year in advance.

Jamie's Pizzeria- Italian Food at its best

Jamie's Pizzeria is a lavish looking restaurant located in Ambience Mall (Gurgaon & Vasant Kunj).

This place was on my list from a really long time and finally i visited it today. 

If i talk about the decor, its simple yet elegant and has a really peaceful atmosphere.. With a huge window from where you can see half of the gurgaon city, gives it a really good feel. 

Good, quick and clean service with no mess. 

The food that I ordered was :-

1. Garlic Bread
2. Rocket Radicchio Salad with Roasted Chicken
3. Polpette Schiacciata Pizza

GARLIC BREAD was very unusual and tasted very good. The dip along with it was delectable. We've all eaten rolled up garlic breads or cheesy garlic breads but this one right here was hand stretched. 
Beatifully presented and tasted very nice.

Rocket Radicchio Salad with Roasted Chicken was a really good choice of salad. Fresh, ambrosial and appealing to the eye. 

It was like a bowl full of freshness, Full marks. 

Polpette Schiacciata Pizza was one of the yummiest authentic italian pizza i have ever eaten. Filled with olive oil, mutton meatballs, roasted onions, rosemary, olives and green chilli. 
What a delight for my tastebuds. 

Those juicy mutton meatballs were so good and complimented all other toppings so well. 
The cheese melted slowly on the pizza and satisfied my hunger well

If you want to eat Authentic Italian Pizza, this one is a must try. Still drooling over it. 

Being Jamie Oliver's Pizzeria, one defenitely expects it to be pricy, right?
But no, you are wrong. Its pretty affordable and serves great food. 
Pizza lovers, this should be your next destination!
