The fine dining scenario in Delhi is seeing a lot of changes and competition today and even the established players in the market are facing tough challenges. And when the competitors are your own sister concerns, it becomes even more challenging. BoomBox Reloaded Cafe at Rajouri Garden in West Delhi is one such newcomer who faced a big challenge from its other two sister outlets in Khan Market and Connaught Place.
Brand Boombox Café, casual multi-cuisine cafe already has a presence for last 5 years in Khan Market and Connaught Place. The BoomBox Reloaded Caféewas planned with a mindset of moving away from the Hip-Hop themed interiors to more sophisticated and premium look and feel. Music and art is the underlying theme of this version of BoomBox Café with a target audience of the age group 21-35 who are foodies and food lovers.
We were invited for a bloggers meet here recently by Ms Veta. We entered the indoor sitting area at the 3rd floor first and instantly liked the decor. Mutedly lighted with a yellow undertone, it was a perfect setting for a luxury lounge. The carpet area was immense allowing ample spacing between tables for a perfect n quiet romantic chitchat along with drinks and snacks. A fully stocked bar had a lovely setting installed with speaker boxes.
The bloggers meet was at the Terrace though. And I loved the settings at the Terrace. It was a lovely day in January and the climate was perfect for an outdoor party. That’s what we had at the Terrace that day. Unlimited drinks and appetizers made everyone happy and busy. The Terrace also had a spacious open rooftop for some quite and private moments with your partner or for a small private party.
The bar served excellent collection of mock-tails, cock-tails and shakes. The bar has high chair sitting but no one from our group was interested in sitting there. We all occupied the tables in small groups and were served with smiling faces on our tables. The owners were present personally and lovingly looked after every demand of the bloggers.
We were coming here after attending another foodie event, so were kind of full. But after seeing the artistic presentations of the starters couldn’t stop ourselves tasting, and regretting the decision of having eaten at the previous establishment. Compared to what we had at that place, the food tasted heavenly here. The mock tails namely, Orange Surprise and Apple with Cranberry juice ware awesome and gave me complete satisfaction.
In the starter section under the vegetarian category, we were served Dahi ke Kebab, small Burgers, Crispy mushroom, Veggie Pizzas, and soft shell Tacos from the Tex-Mex section with beans and veggie filings.
The Leafy Orange and candied Walnut Salad was fantabulous and we went in for two plates of them. All these salads and starters quickly filled up whatever empty space I had in my tummy and I did’nt had the courage to try out the great looking Pasta with Red sauce. But I still had saved just 2 percent of space for the dessert, and relished one of the best Tiramisu available in the area.
Overall, a great place for a fantabulous meal. We really are going to come back – and till we do that – why don’t you your Even numbered car (today is 14th Jan 2016) and go to BoomBox Reloaded Café and load yourself with some amazing food n drinks…. Till we meet again
