Domino's undergoes a revamp and we're in love with it!

Domino's is hands down the most convenient and most consistent pizza delivery chain. Having a Domino's outlet in the same colony as I stay has made my sister and I pure Domino's loyalists for reasons mentioned above, and because the pizza always reaches us piping hot. When a new side order is introduced in the menu, we're the first ones to try it. When the lady on the phone tells us 'Ma'am would you also like to try our new *bla bla* and add it to your order for only Rs.x, we tell her we've already tried it. So you get the point- we're Domino's loyalists. 

Domino's recently sent a text message saying they've launched new pizzas and it's an 'All New Domino's' now. And 2 days later I happened to try their pizzas. A girls night where my sister, my mom and I had lots of wine and ordered pizzas from Domino's!! That's when we tried the new pizzas- a Chicken Peri Peri and a Paneer Peri Peri!

So this All New Domino's is basically more variety of pizzas on the menu, and all pizzas are now made with a crispier and better crust, more cheese, and a better tomato sauce with more herbs in the base (making it more aromatic).

I will sincerely vouch for both the pizzas that I ate. The peri peri flavour really uplifts the pizza and gives it a new edge, definitely different from anything Domino's has kept in their menu before. I think it's going to replace Barbeque Chicken Pizza and become my favourite pick now. Mom loved her paneer pizza too, and because we can eat pizzas with any toppings (veg or non veg), we finished half of hers too. Loved both the pizzas, as usual. So no surprises there.

I particularly loved the new thicker golden crispier crust along the edges out of all the changes they've made. The crust is now just beautiful! More buttery and way crispier. 

Go order the new pizzas now!!

Travel: A Weekend Getaway to The Lalit Chandigarh

The long Eid weekend called for a weekend getaway, and the only options left after waking up at the 11th hour were close by places like Jaipur, Chandigarh, Agra and the likes. Narrowed down on Chandigarh and booked The Lalit Chandigarh. I’ve stayed at Lalit Delhi, Lalit Mangar and Lalit Mumbai before, so this was the 4th Lalit property I was staying at. Imagine how much I would like the Lalit properties to be choosing them everywhere I go. And I’m glad I made this choice the 4th time too. In a gist, my experience at The Lalit Chandigarh was amazing!

The property

The hotel has all the amenities and recreational stuff you expect in a hotel- a gym, a pool, a huge entrance and lobby, classy corridors, restaurants catering to different cuisines, a club in-house, good room service; so you get the idea that they have everything. It’s located a little on the outskirts of the city but Chandigarh is anyway such a small city that nothing feels too far. The famous pubs, markets and restaurants are all at a distance of 10-20 minutes, so not far at all (like I was told by people).

Thai Khun- A Thai Street Food Festival at Kylin Experience, Holiday Inn Mayur Vihar

Kylin Experience at Holiday Inn Mayur Vihar is holding a Thai Street Food Festival only during dinner hours that’s on till the 6th of this month, called Thai Khun. Kylin is well known for its Oriental fare across all its outlets in Delhi, but I never knew they had an outlet at Holiday Inn too, until I went for this festival.

The concept of this festival a Holiday Inn is recreating a Thai street food market, with hawkers and shops selling Thai dishes, where everything is prepared in front of you and the stalls lit up with different lights, the ambience that of a typical street in Thailand celebrating food. The promotion is an experiential meal for the guests. To make the experience even more real for you, the restaurant gives you fake Baht currency in exchange for money, and you go to these stalls yourself, see the price of different dishes, and buy what you want with that fake currency. The most interesting and unique part about the promotion- instantly takes the creativity to a whole new level. To give you a feel of actually eating at a street food shop, the food is served in disposable cutlery that has a wooden look to it.
