I am so infamous for taking pictures of my food whenever I dine out. Although honestly only half of them see the light of Instagram but food to me is porn! I HAVE to click from atleast a dozen angles (okay may be 4) that I make others wait until I finish. And not just what I order but everything on the table. Pity those who eat out with me. On the plate today is Big Chill Cafe. *deep breath* Big Chill. I go into a food coma everytime I read reviews of it online or even while just staring at my own pictures. I don’t know what I was eating all these years! I recently joined the Big Chill bandwagon and have been there quite a few times now. Whenever somebody decides to treat me, I take them to the Saket outlet in DLF Place Mall (because malling..duh) But the Khan Market cafe is the place to go if you want to actually get a feel of the ambience. They have opened up at quite a few places now like Noida, Gurgaon, Kailash Colony, Vasant Kunj, etc but I have not been to those franchises.
Enough with the introduction let’s come straight to the ambience which was the first thing that drove me here. It has this retro Hollywood feel to it with the old movie posters and picture frames. Everything looks very vintage and classic and you feel like you are sitting in a restaurant from an old Hollywood film from the 80s.
I absolutely hate the menu! Its so gigantic and you practically would have to spend atleast half an hour if you were to go through each and every item. And sssh I think they don’t even have all those dishes at hand in the first place. They have atleast 30 varieties of innocent pasta. Its so freaking confusing! I like vegetarian food better so I have only tried their veg items and honestly they don’t have a lot of options for veggies. Their non veg menu is extremely extensive. But still here you go with the best vegetarian dishes.

As you can see, I’m quite big on pastas! Love Italian cuisine. Their servings don’t look that big in quantity but they are all very filling so don’t judge by the size!

I can’t even look at this list. Somebody make me stop. I sometimes fill myself with just desserts. THAT is the level of my sweet cravings. As you can notice, I’ve already broken a lot of my new year resolutions.
Best Drinks and Shakes at Big Chill Cafe:
1. Banana Smoothie (LOVE!)
2. Belgian Chocolate Shake
3. Brownie Shake
4. Chocolate banana Oreo shake
5. Hot Chocolate
The shakes and smoothies are very filling so go light on the food if you order these.
In terms of pricing, its not very expensive considering a sudden wave of new expensive lounges and restaurants in Delhi with half the decent food.
And now I guess I need to go there again. Did I tell you Sailor is coming in a week? I can’t keep calm!
