Another addition to the ever-so-bustling food scene of Connaught Place. The Junkyard Café is by Umang Tewari, the same person behind Public Connection and Garam Dharam, among many others, and Junkyard is his best venture by far according to me. Innovative, quirky, modern and fun- that’s how I would describe this place.
Everything here is made of junk. Junk, something that doesn’t hold any value for someone, but may so for someone else- that is what the concept is. The décor, the utensils, the presentation, everything is made of junk material, but it doesn’t like the common conception of junk; it instead looks brilliant! Drawers, old typewriters and recorders, tyres, metal, glass bulbs- you name it and they’ve made something out of it. The bar looks fantastic with the light (was told it’s the longest bar in CP), one side of the restaurant has a ceiling made of hundreds of bottles, a robot made of junk metal, a dinosaur made of junk, walls made of tyres, drinks served in bulbs- there’s just too much intricacy in these fine details. The place has colour in everything! It looks so vibrant and appealing!
