Vasant Kunj has a new cafe and for a change, it isn’t in the mall. The Patio’s Kitchen (does the kitchen belong to the patio?) sits pretty in the basement of Pawa Presidential Park, in the same building as Cult. Don’t let the basement mislead you, it has an outdoor area too and is quite the airy fairy affair.
Of Swings And Wings
There are two entrances to The Patio’s Kitchen - one through the main entrance of the building which TBH, can end up feeling quite shady and well, the music from Cult might make you feel guilty about wanting to go and hog on giant milkshakes. So if this is going to hamper your experience, go around from the side of the building. This way you’ll be greeted by a swing all done up in white flowers (very wedding-y, very pretty) and the bright green of the grass against the bright blue doors and white walls will only soothe you and put you in a good mood.
The outside area is pretty but given the Delhi heat, I'm choosing the inside every single time. The extremely long open kitchen doesn't make for a bad view either.
The menu is pretty extensive but since I was only looking for a quick bite, I ordered the wings (they ask you your spice preference); these were crunchy, slighly spicy and sour, they tasted a little Oriental, truth be told but tasty nonetheless.
Easy, Breezy Dining
The cafe is meant for lunches and brunches, given its dunny demeanour. They've got a menu full of lots of vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian options and have taken their pick from across various cuisines. They've got colourful (red, blue and yellow!) burgers, loaded fries and nachos, pastas, pizzas and the icing on the cake: Milkshakes topped with popsicles.
We're not saying the food is fantastic but it's a pretty, spacious cafe with a sweet vibe and the staff is super sweet and helpful. The one thing missing? Wi-Fi.. but is that really a bad thing?
This one's good for a quick catch up sesh with a long lost friend or maybe for a calorific shake post workout! Also suggest this to your mother for her next ladies luncheon.
