Inspired by the juxtaposition of  elegance with the industrial elements of the garage is what led to Grease & Glamour.

While H&M’s strong tailoring reflects the need of a modern women’s wardrobe, Nishant Jhamb’s  composition of the vehicles and post-production effects tie Fashion and Grunge together impeccably.The contrast here creates a nice tension with a sharp outerwear – versatile separates and statement accessories.

Hanami Spring Summer Menu 2015

Love in Tokyo

They say in Japan arrival of cherry blossoms marks the end of winters and the onset of Spring- Summer. Just to give you all an insight – people in Japan celebrate the flowering of cherry blossoms by celebrating it outdoors and it’s called the Hanami Festival; be it picnics in the afternoons or cocktails over cheerful evenings, this festival is all about the Delightful Feast!

Still wondering why we are laying so much emphasis upon this Japanese festival?

Well that’s simply because we love Japanese cuisine and since we consider ourselves to be wannabe sushi connoisseurs; we just couldn’t resist when we got an invite from Guppy by ai to come and try out their New Spring/Summer Menu and experience the festivities – we felt rather lucky , after all there is no perfect place than Guppy for a delectable sushi date.

This time the impeccable Japanese treats from the Spring – Summer 2015 menu deserve a special mention, simply because the flavors were clean, and as a welcome change, not dry and bland.

From sakura wood smoked pumpkin soup, seaweed and mesclun salad, Salmon tartare, cold soba / udon noodles served with bonito soy broth – to chilled ramen noodle topped with prawn to the perfect green tea dessert – the entire experience was flavorful yet refined.

Although we do not have photographs that could do justice to the spectacular meal but in all honesty the team at Guppy believes in the policy of serving a unique experience to their customers; therefore this time with the Hanami festival they made sure to highlight every element by featuring sakura inspired dishes in their menu along with oriental art installations and exciting activities to engage their guests – such as the Sushi master class held last month and of course Anime Pop-Up Shop – which will be there until 10th May.

Our Take

It’s rare that you come across an establishment that produces quality food along with amazing customer service at an affordable price. Guppy by ai is one such restaurant you can’t skip; hence we recommend all you sushi lovers to visit this one of a kind restaurant.

Tamra(3)
With panoramic views of the lush green landscaped gardens, Tamra at Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel is a contemporary multi-cuisine all-day dining restaurant inspired from the early ages of culinary evolution when copper (tamra) vessels were key components in making a perfect meal. Conceptualised by the renowned Dubai based Stickman Design, the restaurant features an extensive international and national buffet and an à la carte spread to tantalize your taste buds and deliver a delectable dining experience.

Experience grandeur and utmost elegance

A beacon of culinary excellence, the restaurant offers an eclectic mix of new dining experience to Delhi with a multi-buffet concept that offers global cuisines from Europe, Japan, India and South East Asia. Equipped with five interactive kitchens, the culinary drama unfolds in a spectacular rhythm at the all-day dining restaurant .

Tamra(5)

Rustic yet elegant, the architectural style of the restaurant is striking and vibrant – from the back lit copper signage at the reception to the copper hanging pots  displayed over the two infinity tables where mirrored walls provide an exaggerated view – it is truly a gastronomic and theatrical experience.

Gastronomical Delight 

This was our first visit to Tamra and we have to say we were mighty impressed by their gracious hospitality. As we were led to our table, an array of strategically placed buffet food counters caught our eye. By far the most extensive lunch buffet, It was massive!

The menu was meticulously planned featuring familiar tastes with an exotic epicurean curiosity.

  • Sushi Platter

The impeccable Japanese treat was the first dish to arrive, I have to say that I am no sushi connoisseur but the tuna and salmon sushi deserve a special mention, the flavors were clean, and as a welcome change, not dry and bland.

  • Dim-Sum Delight

Flavorful yet refined is how we would define our dim sum experience. Served with just the right kind of dressing that doesn’t overpower the dim sums. While the Corn and Asparagus dim sums , played with textures in a refreshing bite, the prawn dim sums were an absolute delight.

Prawn Dim Sums

  • Ambedi Mahi Tikka

These succulent chunks of sole fish smeared with masalas and raw mango paste should crown the list of your quick Tandoori bites.

  •  Chicken Trinkets

The crispy fried chicken trinkets served with with peanut sauce were tender to bite into and crispy on the outside – this innovative Thai fusion made our dinning experience worthwhile.

  • Mozzarella Cheese Melt

This savory Focaccia bread topped with pesto marinated vegetables was again absolutely delicious. Maybe the only disappointing factor was the texture as we felt it was heavy and dense.

*In all honesty the team at Tamra, believes in the policy of serving a unique experience to their guests and one has to visit this place to actually experience all of it!

  • Tamra Chocolate

Last but not the least – our favorite part of the meal; the dessert part is something which always makes or breaks a meal for us and we have to say our lunch date at Tamra was made. Although we do not have a photograph that could do justice to this spectacular desserts but their desserts were unpretentious and a refreshing change from the usual suspects. From in house Gelatos to the Crème brûlée and to the most perfect chocolate dessert we’ve ever had – no kidding;”The Tamra Chocolate” was just beyond amazing.

Our Take

Their eye for detail and attention paid to every tiny speck is just mind blowing – the fact that every counter was specifically segregated into vegetarian and non vegetarian section shows how considerate the team is at Tamra and they can go to any extent to make their guests feel comfortable.

Style Coquettes marks this place as – A must visit with your family!

With Rossano Ferretti at LEVO

With Rossano Ferretti at LEVO

To those of you who are wondering what’s this all about – well we are talking about our date with none other than Rossano Ferretti, the man behind Duchess of Cambridge, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek’s  gorgeous  hair. That’s right! the celebrity hairstylist and Hair Extraordinaire was in Delhi few days ago at the Levo Spa in Gurgaon.

19-01-15-Levo

Believe it or not, it’s a dream come true for any girl to get a haircut from the world’s best hairstylist -because  his unparalleled, world class signature method of hair cutting and hair styling is impeccable.

While we were there we got an opportunity to interact with Rossano and I have to say that I have never met anyone as passionate as him; the fact that he understands the essence of beauty so well is the reason why all the top notch celebrities trust him blindly with their tresses.

The Moment

Well yes, finally the moment arrived where I was made to feel like a Diva – because Rassanno himself with his dream team offered to style my hair – yay!!

19-01-15-Levo

Michele Finessi, Artistic Director at Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa

The salon introduces the finest hair styling services tailored to suit the needs of every client, I was glad that I finally got and insight to his much talked about styling technique -“The Method”. I realized that it’s the patented hair-cutting technique and his luxuriously customized vision to hairdressing – what sets the bar high.

It’s a fact that you are never confident about how your haircut would look after the first wash but in my case I instantly knew what my haircut would look like even after a wash; simply because Rosanno believes in following the natural movement of hair – hence your hair never look made up.

I recommend each one of you to go out there and Visit Levo Spa for the most Faboosh hair-styling experience – courtesy : Rossano Ferretti because it’s just worth it 🙂
