BARCELOS INTRODUCES “WHITE BURGER”

This is my second visit to Barcelos, Khan Market and I was invited for a tasting session of White Burger. After trying Salad and Sangria, it was time for the white burger. Regularly brown burger is available in market, but they come in black, red, white color burgers without any artificial colors and preservatives.





Barcelos served completely authentic Afro- Portuguese cuisine in Delhi. Rohit Malhotra, GM Operations, Barcelos Said, “Barcelos had not used any artificial color and preservatives to darken the bun but the herbs, natural and organic ingredients used in it to make colorful and healthy buns”.



Now Barcelos introduces White Burger for foodies. Always give preference to customer’s taste and healthy meal. If you're wondering, that the black, red and white burgers only differ in their color, you're wrong. The taste is very different as the black burger is made with spinach extract, roasted wheat and herb to the dough, the white with coconut, plain flour and milk powder, the red with tomato powder, chili flakes and beetroot. I wanted to try all the flavors.

White burger is made with milk powder, coconut powder to the dough in a baked bun on low temperature for longer time to achieve the color and flavors. The white burgers are available for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian lovers for Rs.175 and Rs.215. This slightly sweet bread provides the fresh bun for the delicious burger. The patties inside are innovative too.
The non-vegetarian one consists on a slab of grilled chicken. But I tried vegetarian one that I love most. It’s not a deep fried regular one, its pan fried patty. So instead of crispy, the patty is soft which made with ricotta cheese, capsicum and slice of orange, completely healthy meal compare to regular junk food. It had a unique and amazing taste from the other burgers I have tried. Even you can choose the level of spice variants in your peri peri sauce like supa peri, veri peri,mild peri and tangy lemon.

Barcelos also introduce a platter of mini burgers with all four variants (white, black, red and brown) in one order… full on with flavors and colors.
Great staff, awesome service and decent muic and nice ambience, gives happiness.
Waiting for more offering in coming months, Keep up the good work!!

Barcelos Celebrates ‘Salads & Sangria’ Festival

After huge success in introducing Black and Red color Burgers, Barcelos is back with another concept for those who love drinks and healthy appetizers. To thrill its customers, this time Barcelos is introducing India’s first Sangria Bar. With the launch of multi variety Sangria, Barcelos is celebrating ‘Salads & Sangria’ festival.



For the first time in world, Barcelos is going to introduce maximum 21 varieties of Sangria at its Khan Market located restaurant. Luckily I got an invite from Barcelos to taste the classic sangrias and salad.



Sangria is a typical beverage from Spain and Portugal. It normally consists of wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy. Chopped fruit can include orange, lemon, lime, apple, peach, melon, berries, pineapple, grape, kiwifruit and mango. A sweetener such as honey, sugar, syrup, or orange juice is added. Instead of brandy, other liquids such as Seltzer, Sprite or 7 Up may be added. Sangria is steeped while chilled for as little as minutes or up to a few days.At Barcelos, Sangrias made with fresh chopped fruits and white and red wines.


First time I tried alcoholic Sangrias at Barcelos which include White Lemongrass Sangria, Watermelon & Apple Sangria, Mango & Chili Sangria with Basil, Peach Sangria, Ginger & Clove Sangria, Pomegranate & Rosemary Sangria, and Cucumber Sangria.

Love the flavors and smell of wine, personally I fall in love with Cucumber and Lemon Sangria with white wine and secondly Watermelon and Apple Sangria. They used high quality of wine for sangria were accompanied with healthy salads. The sangrias are available for Rs. 255 per glass.




I tried Capris Salad which made with fresh green and red lettuce, caramelized roasted nuts (almonds and walnuts), grilled tomatoes and zucchini with pesto sauce and sweet onion dip… love the taste of onion dip and nice texture…..so creamy. The portions were good and love the whole platter…. very impressive.



The other salads which are available at Barcelos, Pear & Chicken Salad with Peri Peri Dip, Fattoush Salad and Grilled Orange & Watermelon Salad which made with orange, pears, watermelon, melon seeds and roasted nuts. Love the combination of Sangrias and healthy salads…. love the colors and flavors…. fresh and aromatic.

For this festival, Barcelos is offering combo of one salad and one sangria priced at Rs 375.

About Barcelos: With a single operation founded in Pretoria, South Africa in 1993, Barcelos has grown exponentially which led it to start franchising in 1998. It has been expanding continuously and became a household name the world over ever since. Barcelos enjoys its presence in 17 countries with 120 outlets.  To ensure continuity and excellence throughout the brand the founders of the brand, namely Costa Maziz, johan van Eyk and Beverley Vaskys, are all still actively involved in the operations of the company.

The company currently employs in excess of 2000 staff and instills ongoing high standards and expectations from all staff at head office and stores alike.

So if you want to taste something unique and interesting flavors of Sangrias ad salads, Barcelos is right place to enjoy with friends and families.

Review for Bottoms Up... Gastropub @ Punjabi Bagh, Delhi


Every foodie loves good drink, good food and good entertainment, to get these entire things at one place… Bottoms Up is perfect gastropub located on club road, Punjabi Bagh.


Everyone is welcomed and will find their peace either in the fine dining area on the ground floor or the bar-lounge area on the second floor. Love the seating arrangement in the balcony.  


The ambiance of restro is groovy and peppy, fit for youngster’s mood and taste. I was attended by Mr. Harsher and shared whole delicacies with him. Even bottom ups offering nutritious and healthy food includes air fryer dishes, baked & tandoori dishes for health conscious people.

The interior look like raw warehouse have old fashioned barrels, hand painted walls and Edison light bulbs. Not too bright and not dark just right balance. … Just like go there, seat and relax, chill out with nice and peppy music… chit chaat with friends and enjoy fantastic food.



They are offering quite unique and interesting menu options for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. I tried few mocktails like Orange and Date Mojito and Kiwi Lemonade.

Wild Herbed Guava is fresh and little spicy mocktail which taste like a spicy guava chaat and best option for non-alcoholic drinkers. You can get many more flavors if you are also non-alcoholic person like me.


The Chakhna Platter is a great innovation which served in tea glasses, good accompanied with your cocktails and mocktails. These are common chat like channa jor garam, spicy corn masala and toasted peanuts masala but love the whole idea like how to present…specially the flavors which make them different from the regular one.


The Tandoori Pineapple Kimchi with Toasted Peanuts Salad in Kadak Roomali is just like dream dish. I tried roomali roti with gravies or in wraps form. But this platter is completely unique and impressive too. Love the texture of crisp roomali in basket style and filled with tandoori pineapple, sprouts and toasted peanuts and more.


Two must recommend dish are Bunny Chow (fill your bunny with choice of curry) and Thin Crust Turkish Pizza. I love the concept of thin crust and topped with smoked tomatoes, mushrooms and hung yogurt instead of cheese, completely healthier option for your tastebuds…..creamy and crunchy.


Now time to reveal something in sweet, the experience was good with Bitter chocolate Rum and Raisin Mousse.  It was look pretty in plate as well in taste. The sauce on the plate was giving it an edge.

Lite bite foods, one of the fastest growing food and beverages Retail Company in the country today launched Bottoms Up Gastropub in Punjabi Bagh, Delhi.

Announcing the launch of Bottoms Up, Rohit Aggarwal, Director, Lite Bite Foods said, “Whether you are looking for a cool place to hang out or dance the night away or best just to relax and enjoy an alluring spread of fusion food, Bottoms Up is the place. Delhi is indeed the place for hardcore urbanites who love to have fun when the sun goes down. Bottoms Up will be the ideal combination of good music and scrumptious food.”

Personally suggest to my readers and friends, just visit once and you love it. No need to convince because food, entertainment and service speak for itself.

It’s a best place for your kitty parties, birthday parties, corporate meeting & parties. Overall you get good food, relaxed and easy going ambience with warm hospitality for your guests in affordable budget.
