The race in Delhi NCR is hotting up as far as launching new food joints is concerned. We come across new venture every second day and that includes revamping and new Avtars. One such recent Avtar is The Flying Saucer cafe CP by Priyank Sukhija. This is a new avatar of yesteryears QBA, and believe me guys – Prayank has done a wonderful job as I was instantly impressed by it grandeur and the interiors and warmth..
This new entrant from Priyank Sukhija’s chain of Restaurants is multi-cuisine double leveled huge space with a terrace zone which give you a view of central Connaught place and a mesmerizing view of Indian national flag hoisted in the central park. The feel of the space is massive but comfortable beautiful and warm.
We were here for a launch party and as usual were tasting the mocktails and veggie food.
We started with a fruit punch, a mocktail full of flavours and very refreshing. But a few other mocktails and milk shakes were not that appealing and were missing on flavours and taste.
We then strted with the appetizers and loved the Crispy Corn Kernels, boiled American corn served in fried rice crackers cups were nice.
Penang Paneer TIkka had an interesting twist to it as it was topped with an Asian Sauce which enhanced the flavor and made it different from regular Paneer tikka, I loved it for its flavour, softness and juicyness.
Next we were served with Mini Samaosa –nice and crispy with soft spicy panner filling, and they were yummy too.
On our request to try something else Manager arranged for us Corn Sev and and Mini Kachori Chaat. My Indian taste buds loved the Corn Sev for it sweet and tanginess and can easily classify it as the star dish of the evening.
Just when I was about to order the Main course we were served with another starter-Sriracha and Honey Mushrooms- crispy fried mushrooms tossed in honey and asian sauce.
For The Main Course we had Paneer Tacos and Khoa Suey Burger. Both these dishes were just Ok and can be avoided.
But Briyani with Raita and veggie salsa made us say WOW, it was well prepared, tasted good and was aromatic. In fact I would classify this as one of the best veggie briyani (Well veggie Pulao as some may call it) I have ever had in Delhi.
Yes guys, you know me well now, I was now waiting for the Desserts. But we were disappointed – as two of the three desserts (Blueberry Cheesecake and Cold Brownie) served were just okayish, and the third one (Choco Mousse) slightly better.
Well, we wanted some more sweets – so we tried the Paan ice-cream. This was just amazing, the flavours of a Meetha Paan was so evident with Gulkand filling up my taste senses with every bite. This was just amazing and I am sure you will also like it friends, don’t miss this.
I would rate this place very good for starters and drinks, but just OK for main course and desserts.
