Blanco in Khan Market

Khan Market (near Lodhi Estate) in New Delhi is one of the swankiest market locations in Delhi, and also one of the most expensive. It is frequented by the classy people of Delhi (including diplomats from the nearby posh colonies of Golf Links, and Jor Bagh).
One of the famous restaurants located over there is called Blanco, and is almost like a world cuisine (well, it serves multi cuisine food with European, Japanese, Indonesian, Thai, and so on). Sounds good, doesen't it ? A lot of regular patrons agree, and people liking the place frequent it regularly. It can be expensive though, with a food for 2 with drinks coming to Rs. 1500 - 2000. For that cost, you better feel very good at the end of the meal, and enjoy it a lot.
The seating is interesting and experimental, with wooden tables (in a somwhat unfinished look). The look is different from the conventional look, and an interesting look on the walls (a lot of sunglasses, although there is no reason as to why sunglasses were chosen. If you watch the video below, you will know what the reasoning behind the restaurant people were on putting these sunglasses).
Here's a sampling on some of the food available at the restaurant - Asparagus and wasabi cheese wraps, Grilled feta and herbed polenta on skewers, Sushi platter, Vietnamese crisp prawn rolls, Carribean salads, Crispy red snapper, various tomato soups, Peppered chicken and mushroom broth, various steaks, Hawaiin pork chops, Australian lamb rack, Zuccini rolls, Grilled jumbo prawns, King fish steak, Cajun grilled vegetables, and Grilled vegetables steak.
They have a small selection of drinks, and a separate smoking section.

Sahib Sindh Sultan - a good restaurant in Gurgaon

The number of good restaurants in Delhi and the NCR region has kept on increasing over the past few years. As the number of malls have increased and a larger number of people have got into the habit of spending time in malls, the urge to eat out (especially at good places has increased tremendously). One example of this was this restaurant called Sahib Sindh Sultan (located inside the Ambience Mall in Gurgaon). We had to meet some friends after a period of a year, and owing to some locational issues, we went to Gurgaon to meet our friends. Finding the Mall and the restaurant was incredibly easy, if you are coming from the Delhi side, then as soon as you cross the Toll gate, the mall is located on the left side (you need to get off the highway as soon as you see a proper opening).
The restaurant is apparently part of a group called the BJN group that also runs other restaurants right next to SSS, and is located on the 3rd floor of the mall, close to the ground parking side (the side furthest away from the entrance to the mall; parking to the mall costs Rs. 30).
As you enter the restaurant, the initial look was that it seemed richly decorated, but a trifle dark. However, as you move in, you quickly spot a section of the restaurant where a train seems to be standing, and when you climb in, there are tables inside the train. A nice touch, and made all of us seem a bit happy (and of course the kid was very happy to be stepping inside a train). The seats were comfortable, and we thought that we were in a right place. Then the menu arrived, and it seemed to be a bit high, but this was a classy place (so went the reasoning) so we continued in that place.
And then the starters arrived followed by the food. The place offers a mix of Anglo-Indian, Gujarati, and Frontier food (a mish-mash of different styles). The starters (2 veg, one was a sort of vegetable seekh kabab, the other was a mushroom and other parts dish (and both were tasty); and then we had the non-veg started which was an excellent 5 pieces of fish fry (very tasty)). It was the main course that was even more incredible, the veg palak malai kofts and dal were great. Non-veg chicken biryani was in a good quantity and probably the best biryani I had ever eaten. Overall, the food was very great. If I do not recommend to everyone, it is because for 4 of us, the overall bill came to Rs. 3400 which is high by any standard (consider than 12.5 % was VAT, and 10% was a service charge).
