D is for Dessert. D is also for Delectable, Delicious, Divine and Drool-some. Coincidence? We think not! Desserts are what make the world go round after all! And our lives a little sweeter, those Mondays a little more bearable and the Fridays a million times more exhilarating! We decided to go on a dessert trail over at Con Affetto to banish those rainy day blues and since we’re all about the #funky, the not so regular and the #unboring, our desserts had to be a little #hatke too! We were amazed with some of the absolutely delish delights we found and of course we had to share the deets with you’ll. So check out this list of totally drool worthy desserts in Delhi you simply gotta taste right away! You and your sweet tooth are in for a treat!
1. Oppa Gangnam Style!
Yup, still on desserts; haven’t completely lost it-yet! It’s just that the delectable Bingsu brings out the inner PSY in us! What’s Bingsu, did you say? An absolutely fab Korean dessert made of a wacky combination of ice shavings and all sorts of things like sweetened condensed milk; fruit syrup; bits of fruit- kiwi, banana, strawberries; rice cake; cereal flakes; even chewy jelly bits and topped off with ice cream or frozen yoghurt. It tastes so deeee-vine it’ll have you doing the Gangnam groove in no time!
Binge on some Bingsu at Ssongchee, Saket. Find them on Facebook here.
2. We like our chocolate. And we like it better FRIED!
We kid you not; fried chocolate EXISTS. At a choco-licious place called Garage Inc in Hauz Khas village, to be precise. Think Snickers. Think Mars. Deep. Fried. Do we really need to say more? Just dig into your fried chocolate bars and *swoooooooooon*
Deep fried chocolate delights await you at Garage Inc, Hauz Khas. Find them on Facebook here.
3. A trip down Parle-G tinged nostalgia lane
The smell of freshly baked biscuits instantly takes us on a nostalgia trip back to our childhood when biscuits meant the good ol’ Parle-G. Which is why when we heard of the Parle-G Cheesecake at Farzi Cafe, we simply had to go check it out! With smooth, creamy cheesecake sandwiched between two crisp, upright Parle-G’s, in a pool of chilled rabri topped with Gems and dry fruit *sighhhh* shimmering all around; this one just got it right in all those sweet spots a million times over!
Go nostalgia trippin’ on Parle-G at Farzi Cafe, Gurgaon. Find them here.
4. Phir se, phir se, phir se…
…is what you’ll definitely say when you take one taste of the Phirni Crème Brulee! Quite a mouthful that, huh? But when your regular Phirni gets a makeover, it needs a name with a touch of jazz! If you like your Phirni, this version drizzled with sugar on top and then torched like a crème brulee will have you asking ‘phir se’ for this Phirni with a tantalizing twist.
Let your tastebuds flirt with the Phirni Creme Brulee at Junglee Billi, GK-1. Find them on Facebook here.
5. Thou Shalt Bow….
Thou definitely shalt bow when thou encounter this melt in your mouth sweet; a soft, light Chinese dessert. Dou Sha Bao, steamed white buns filled with a red bean filling are just what the doctor ordered for those days when you wish you’d stayed under the covers. Typically served with a glass of doodh, these bursting with flavour buns are known to pack in a whole lotta nutrition too. So go ahead and bow to the Dou Sha Bao!
Take a bao at Sibang, Gurgaon. Find them here.
6. Shaahi Jam
Remember the vodka gol gappas from Punjabi By Nature? Well, ladies and gentlemen, now it’s the chuski’s turn in the sun! The humble little chuski now gets a makeover, bathed in a mix of vodka, Roohafza, lime juice and salt. This is one chuski worth crossing a million water logged, traffic jams for! Hic!
Get chuski’d at 21 Gun Salute, Gurgaon. Find them here.
7. And last but not the least, a surprise…
We just had to end our list of 7 drool worthy desserts with this one! Okay, okay, we admit- we have a soft spot for Oreos in any form, which is why when we first met ‘The Oreo Surprise’ we felt like we’d died and gone to heaven! Coz heavenly is exactly what batter fried Oreos, drizzled with sugar and crushed into submission by a creamy river of whipped cream, cheese, sugar and milk feel like! Oh and did we mention you also get a serve of your favourite ice cream to go with it? Yes, we’re in heaven just thinking about it!
A taste of heaven at New York Slice, Hauz Khas Village. Find them here.
