Cafe Lolz Gastropub “Restaurant Review”

by Radhika

I am a student and I am always searching for pocket-friendly restaurant and cafes. I got to know about this place from my friends who usually hangout in the south campus area. I checked out this place with my college friends. I loved it. The ambience, staff, seating, games, food-everything was really nice. Food quality and quantity both were awesome. The menu won’t burn a hole in your pocket at all. You will relish the food here with no disappointments.

Most of the cafes located in south campus are pocket friendly.


295, Ground Floor, Benito Suarez Marg, Satyaniketan, New Delhi


American, Italian


Rs. 500-1000 plus taxes for two.


Service was quick. Staff were courteous and polite.


Ambience was lovely. It’s a bright and colorful place. Interiors are well done, you can play games like ludo, chessboards on the dining table. Then there was a small corner where there were cushions on the floor, I chose that place to sit.

The Ancient Barbeque “Restaurant Review”

by Neetu

Normally on weekends our day starts in the afternoon, I know that doesn’t sound very great, but that is how it is, and I always wanted to go for a Sunday Brunch since ages, but I don’t know when that is gonna happen, anyhow not Sunday brunch, we went for Saturday Lunch at this new place called “The Ancient Barbeque”.

The Ancient Barbeque is an another restaurant, with the concept of setting  up a small grill on the your dining table itself, nice, but not new. We all know that Barbeque Nation and Pirates of Grill has achieved tremendous success with the same concept already, so now the question is that will TAB be able to give it peers a tough competition, and prove its worth. I think the answer is Yes, let’s checkout the review to know why and on what grounds.


Please ignore my sleepless eyes : )

Poriyal (Sorakkai Curry)

by Ishetta

Poriyal, this name would be alien to most of us,or to be precise non South Indians. At first it seemed like a tough recipe or a dish to prepare from the name, but while reading it through, it just not only relieved me but also developed my interest and liking towards it. Simply because of the different combination of spices from my regular cooking.

This in-fact turned out to be the simplest recipe with the least ingredients that I must have cooked till date : )

Hellos guyzzz, so what are your plans for Raksha bandhan (Rakhi), I am so happy my parents came over for the festival and my irritating brother is also here. Being the  girl child of the family, I always get gifts on festivals (I just love these customs and traditions : P) and poor my brother, he has to give them every time (hehehehe) so we use to have big fights, he use to crib a lot “kya hai hur baar didi ko hi milta hai sub” : ) now he doesn’t though, as we have grown up, but I still miss those good old days a lot. : )

Ok, lets come back to the post now, I made Banana & Cherry Muffins today and they turned out to be super yum, soft, spongy and just “"Peeerfect” Like Madhuri Dixit says in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa : )
