AMPM Café & Bar: A foodie’s haven!
Nestling among a plethora of other food joints at Rajouri Garden, AMPM Café & Bar has been quite successful in carving a niche for itself & how! The decor, to begin with, is eye-catching & one simply can’t miss gawking at the spectacular photographs of musicians & artists they have put up on their walls all over.
There is ample light (a definite plus in my books as I don’t really understand why some restaurants opt for painfully dim lighting nowadays? Are they afraid their customers might actually get a good look at the food being served!? :p), nevertheless coming back to the topic, good seating arrangement & decent space available.
The staff is adequately dressed, good mannered & well-informed about the dishes being served from the kitchen, which brings me to talk a bit about the food here. I started with a bowl of Chicken Hot & Sour Soup which, in my humble opinion, was a tad bit higher on the vegetables quotient & lower on the chicken. Surprisingly enough, I didn’t have to add additional Soya sauce or Vinegar (which I generally do with soups) because it was already well-balanced in the taste department.
Next came the vegetable cutlets & another dish that looked like a stuffed Chicken Kulcha, pardon my ignorance of not knowing what it was called as I am notoriously bad with remembering names! Be that as it may, both of them were pleasingly plated, presented & also tasted well.
Moving on now to the really good stuff. The next in line were Cottage Cheese Pots: these immaculately presented little bundles of cheese were as, if not more, pleasant to the tongue as they were to the eyes. Apparently, these little wonders were the newest addition to the AMPM menu.
Raising the game to another level was the sumptuous Chilli Chicken Hot Dog! As it turns out, I have recently seen another establishment experimenting with Chilli Chicken by coming out with a Bagel shaped burger stuffed with it & now it was the turn of the very familiar hot dog to get a “Chilli Chicken-y” make-over. I think it’s safe to say it just worked beautifully.
But it was the Pizza that deserves the label of being called a show-stealer. Show-stealers, as a matter of fact because there were at least 4 kinds of Pizza that I got to try 😉 I know, lucky me :p
But where things did falter a bit would unfortunately be the desserts. The red velvet cake & Tiramisu that were served out didn’t stand up to their names & there is a lot of room for improvement in that department.
All things said & done and ate & reviewed the overall experience was evoking & grand. Do check out the place & let me know about your experience as well!
