Our Food Trail At Pacific Mall

Hello Foodies!

Delhi winters are the perfect excuse to indulge in your favorite foods. Yes, your body braving the chilly winds really needs a steaming hot plate of jalebi with rabri. It’s not a guilty pleasure; it’s a dietary supplement.

It’s also a good time to go out and explore some new places. A few weeks ago, I headed out to Pacific Mall, Tagore Garden with fellow food bloggers. If you live in Delhi, it’s a great place to shop and eat. This place packs in 35 options for food! From authentic Punjabi flavors to experimental continental, there’s a lot to choose from when you are in the mood to indulge your taste buds. Sounds like a foodie’s paradise, right? It is probably the only place in Delhi that offers so much variety in great food.  

Though we were previously familiar with the numerous food options at Pacific Mall, it wasn’t until recently that we got a taste of the diverse offerings. The occasion was an exclusive food walk and cookout with celebrity food blogger Kunal Vijaykar who had flown in from Mumbai. I have followed him on television for a long time and was looking forward to seeing him in person. I don’t think there’s anyone else who comes close to talking about food in such a witty manner. He is so effortlessly hilarious!

We got to see some of his charming wit during our food walk at Pacific Mall. We also had a chance to see the chefs in action. It’s always good to get a peek into everything that goes into making a tantalizing dish.

Here’s an overview of the places at the mall where we got to try some lovely food:

 

  • The Punjab Grill

 

The Punjab Grill presents a fine dining experience right in the middle of a bustling Pacific Mall. We got to taste champ tajdar, tandoori murg and paneer tikka. It felt like we had authentic Punjabi flavors after a really long time. The service was prompt and the ambience was very soothing. It’s the perfect dining destination for a mellow evening with your loved ones.

 

  • Castle’s Barbeque

 

Dining here truly felt like dining at a medieval castle. We loved the play of lights and shadows at Castle’s Barbeque as well as the variety of flavors. Make the most of the live grill and don’t miss the variety of desserts here.

Must Try Dishes-

Kalmi Kabab – The texture of the kebabs is right on point here.

Dal Makhani- The dish had a rich taste, thanks to the extensive simmering and use of mixed spices.  

 

  • Café Delhi Heights

 

Located on the second floor of the mall, Cafe Delhi Heights has a really cool vibe. We couldn’t get enough of the unique mix of flavors here. We tried the pan fried noodles and grilled chicken breast; we loved them both. The décor and ambience of this place is perfect for a casual outing with your friends.

 

  • The Beer café

 

This chain has been our favorite for a long time. We tried this outlet for the first time and the Shahajahani mutton seekh kebab won our hearts. The bhuna chaat also presented an explosion of flavors.

 

  • Chili’s

 

If you love American and Mexican food, you are possibly already familiar with Chili’s. The chain has a popular outlet at Pacific Mall. We looked forward to trying the Mexican food and savored the strong flavors in the quesadillas and fajitas. Just loved them! Though there are a variety of other flavors on offer, the spices and herbs really got our attention.  

 

  • Biryani Blues

 

The widely-acclaimed biryani specialists served us a treat in a handi. The taste left us wondering about how Biryani Blues had cracked the code for the amazing biryani and kebabs. This joint gave us the best Hyderabadi biryani experience in Delhi.

 

  • Jamie Oliver’s Italian

 

It’s hard to resist the aroma of a freshly baked pizza and Italian herbs, right? At Pacific Mall, Jamie Oliver’s is the place to enjoy the finest Italian flavors. The vintage décor and lighting make for a very unique experience. We devoured the Porcini Penne with mixed mushrooms and the margherita pizza with mozzarella cheese. To finish off, we had the cheesecake. A hearty meal with very fine flavors!  

Have you been to Pacific Mall? With an outdoor zone for kids and several places to chill, it is perfect for a day out with friends or family. Do share with us your favorite places from there!

Love,
