The Living Room Cafe
As much as being in Hauz Khas Village somewhere gives you a feeling that you’re not in Delhi, similarly, being in The Living Room Cafe would make you feel that you’re not in just any other restaurant, but somewhere different. After all, there aren’t many places in Delhi that sport gramophones with orange interiors and yet manage to make you a repeat visitor…!!
Start walking up the stairs and you’ll be greeted by small pebbles that form the entry bed to the main door of the cafe. Once inside, what strikes you in an extremely catchy yet subtle way would be a mix of white, bright orange and purple interiors, and a central staircase that gives this place a unique style statement.
Starting with the TLR blends is a good way to quench your thirst. We ordered the ‘honey dew’ and the ‘pompom’. The former being a refreshingly different twist to the legendary fresh lime soda, and the latter essentially a mock-tail of apple and pomegranate. Starters are fairly contemporary and if you’re a fan of salsa n chicken pairing make sure you try the ‘hari om pollo’.
Mains are sumptuous and delicious. We ordered the ‘pollo cilantro’ wherein the marinade on that perfectly cooked chicken was absolutely spot-on. What took the dish to a completely different level were those roasted green veggies and the Spanish styled baby potatoes. Big thumbs up to the mint and coriander dip that accompanied the dish.
Last but definitely not the least, make sure you try the ‘chocolate pillows’ if you’re left with any space for desserts. Good food, pleasant atmosphere and a very courteous staff make TLR a sure shot place to visit..!!
