Quite true, I believe, but what's the rush to leave when we've got good food to keep us company?
Food and travel go hand in hand. What if I tell you then, that these two gorgeous worlds had collided and produced an extravaganza that Tourist is, in the heart of the city at Janpath?
And, while I had recently witnessed a gala affair at Office Canteen Bar, I had also made it known that I would be chronicling my experience at Tourist Janpath, which is all that this post is about.
After An Upside Down "DR∀M∀" and OCB, a hattrick has been aimed for, with Tourist, and yes, they have achieved it quite effortlessly.
An invite to this journey around the world through the presentation of global cuisine came about as a consequence of a Media Luncheon.
Tourist Janpath is a thematic restaurant quite aesthetically done as premises because it captures the journey of a tourist. Be it the life-size globe at the entrance, the seating did as train berths with cushions based on flags of countries, clocks of various countries on their walls, the World Map captured as a ready reckoner, or the wonderful cyclist on the wall with the backpack that one would inherently want to grab and proceed on a wanderlust, Tourist Janpath celebrates the essence of travelling and creating memories by celebrating the food associated with places around the globe.
Tourist Janpath is essentially a Street Food Bar and presents it as such from each corner of the world. Their food menu is demarcated into four passport menu cards by region; South Asia, Europe, Far West and the Far East.
With their Terrace being the most popular spot in the premises, their library situated on the first floor would be the perfect companion on that quintessential trip.
The place was also perfectly decked up for Christmas, all that was needed was a vintage fireplace with those festive stockings for that picture perfect Postcard.
Here's all that was presented to us Bloggers at the Media Luncheon...
- Corn Chili Fritters
- Croquetas De Fungi
- Dragon Chicken
- Paneer Tikka
- Mutton Kebab
- Pizza Al Taglio
- Balochi Dal
- Hasselback Potatoes
- Kosha Mangsho
- Crepes Ala Francaise
- Khao Suey
While this is quite a spread, the cherry on the cake were their well-done mocktails. My must-try beverages when at Tourist Janpath would be:
- Virgin Mojito, presented in a dual-color skull shaped mug.
- Mandarin & Basil Splash - Citrus, clove, cinnamon, and basil - unusual ingredients packing a flavorful punch.
- Cool Sensation - Watermelon based drink, with a slice on the side as garnish.
- Rim Jhim - Apple based, and true to its name.
- Blueberry & Banana Shake
- Death By Eclairs
I loved my time around the world as a Tourist in Janpath and would not mind a second sojourn. Here's wishing Team Tourist success for 2017... :)
