Sly Granny is the latest entrant in the Delhi food scene. Like its Bangalore counterpart the restaurant at Khan market has created quite a buzz among Delhites as it’s always full, at least during lunch hours.
Once you enter the restaurant, the first thing that you notice are the bright and cheerful posters on the wall. The decor poses a wonderful combination of classic yet colourful interior.
Coming to food, this was my third visit to the restaurant. The earlier two visits were mixed with a few hits and misses, so this time, we vested our trust on our steward’s suggestions, and we weren’t disappointed.
For starters we were served Deconstructed Cheese Toast, Calamari Fritto, Salmon Gravalax, Pork Ribs and Moroccon Chicken Flatbread. All the dishes served were excellent. The Calamari was not chewy and had the perfect texture.
The deconstructed cheese toast looked as good as it tasted. The flavour of the salmon gravalax was so fresh and the mustard and dill sauce complimented it well.
The Moroccon Chicken Flatbread had a perfect crunchy base and the roasted shallots lent a beautiful sweet aftertaste.
The Pork Ribs were perfectly succulent and tender. However, the sauce accompanying the pork ribs lacked in flavour completely. It tasted more like a tomato ketchup. And the feedback was immediately conveyed to the restaurant manager.
By this time we were quite full and satisfied yet we wanted to try out the mains. So again as per the suggestions from the staff we went for Black Pepper Salmon, Roast Chicken and Saffron Couscous. The Black Pepper Salmon is a must try. The fish was perfectly cooked and not overly seasoned, therefore, retaining it’s flavour completely. And it was perfect with the dill sour cream and potato and bean salad alongside.
The Roast Chicken was good, but the Saffron Couscous stood out for me. This is again a must try. I have never enjoyed a vegetarian dish so much. Personally it was the best dish of the day at Sly Granny. What a beautiful blend of flavours and texture. As I write this I am so craving for this dish.
Even though we were too full for anything more, we couldn’t have left the place without a sweet ending so upon his suggestion we were served a decadent Chocolate Lava Cake, how can you ever go wrong with that?
Overall, my third visit to Sly Granny was totally phenomenal both in terms of food and service. But I would suggest for you to make a prior reservation. And for me, I can’t wait to visit soon for the dessert which a friend recommended so highly.
From the beginning of time, humans have captured in frame everything that they want to leave behind as evidence or memories. Over time cameras have changed forms, shapes and sizes but man’s need to capture memories hasn’t.
I often travel to exotic locales with my family and the best part is capturing the amazing memories made. I came across the Canon EOS 200D, its compact and sleek design is ideal to carry with you during vacations. For me, memories make up the vacation and not the location per se, as you can leave the location but you can never leave the memories behind.
When I see my daughter and wife being happy and enjoying themselves, I want to capture the moment and save it in my memory (not just the memory card!) and Canon EOS 200D helps me do exactly that, effortlessly. The camera exemplifies the successful fusion of stylish form and superb functions in one.
Even though it’s a lightweight DSLR, it doesn’t disappoint on the image quality front. The image quality is superb, providing better image quality than a point and shoot cameras or phones. It is definitely a hit amongst those who want all the features of a DSLR but don’t want to carry all the cumbersome equipment.
The Canon EOS 200D had received a sensor upgrade and now comes with a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor with Digic 7 processor. It has helped in maximizing ISO from 25600 to 51200. Even with 9 focusing points the focusing is quite fast, even in live view. With a 3 inch full touch screen along with Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth its super easy to get great shots and share them with everyone.
Another helpful element solving an issue most people face, the new battery effectively increases the number of photographs that can be taken to 650 and the video mode lets you capture seamlessly with a stereo microphone and 60fps shooting at 1080p. It can shoot time lapse videos like a pro or you can also use a wired/wireless remote or you’re your smartphone.
No vacation is ever over without that perfect selfie and while most smartphones are equipped to perform, Canon stepped it up with the 200D and provided a selfie mode to make sure your vacation selfie is the best! This camera is perfect for smartphone users as well as aspiring photography enthusiasts, catering to a wide array of users.
All in all, it’s a great camera which provides functionality and sleek style in one which helps you make great things, effortlessly!
