Belgian Cafe, Noida
This cafe intrigues you from the moment you step in. What does one look for in a cafe like this? The quality of food and drinks, of course, is paramount but doesn't the ambience and decor have equal significance? Perhaps yes if you trust the French, who often say: "Food is served best at home, cooked by your beloved. When you eat out, you eat as much of the ambience as the delicacies of the Chef”. Located on the ground floor of the Crown Plaza hotel which is a hub for young professionals and this splendid Belgian cafe is the jewel in the crown of its gastronomic scene.
You cannot go to a Belgian cafe and miss the fries. As you flick through the pages of its menu, the Belgian love for fries comes alive and one that you must try is 'Patat Royale', thick fries wrapped at the centre with ham giving it a piggy twist. And fries go well with a pint of beer, don't they? If you wish to order something more Indianised, you can opt for chilly chicken. Served with a thick sauce of onions and chillies, they melt in your mouth.

Burma Burma, New Delhi
Pure vegetarians usually have limited options at fine dining restaurants. Not so in Burma Burma. Though Burmese cuisine is known for its seafood and meat preparations, the restaurant has given these a miss. But the vegetarian spread they have on offer comes as a pleasant surprise even for meat lovers. The cosy restaurant has beautiful interiors with colourful dolls of several Burmese tribes displayed on one wall, while the other has elements from Burmese culture carved into it - the lotus flower, the owl, fish and more.
Let's start with a Nutella-flavoured bubble tea. A mix of black tea, milk, maple syrup and chewy tapioca pearls with Nutella salad platter with raw mango salad, tea leave salad and sunflower salad - the leaves were fresh and left me pondering how a cuisine could utilise every part of a plant, flower and fruit so well. Besides being green, it was crisp with peanuts mixed in it.Soups offered here are interesting too, with the "samosa soup" a clear winner. A bit on the hot side, the soup will be loved by those who like red chilli flakes in their food. The other two were chickpea tohu soup and Burmese pepper soup which were minus the hot spices and rather filling.
