Date Night

Date Night = Best Night Of The Week

Date night is always special. Be it as a couple who just going out or even if you are married. We believe there should be one date night every fortnight or at least every month. For when you wish to make those date nights extra special and the regular cafes just won’t do, how about enjoying dinner and drinks with a view? We’ve found five restaurants with a view of the Qutub Minar, great food and potent drinks that will make your next date night a memorable one.

Here’s where you should head for your next date night:

Bo Tai Qutub

One of the most popular restaurants in Mehrauli, Bo Tai Qutub is a favourite among many of its regular customers. Amazing decor, good food and tempting drinks.

Address: 6/4 Kalka Das Marg Mehrauli Road, Near Qutub Minar



Thai High

If a glass of wine, a spectacular view and authentic Thai grub like Yam Phak Krob doesn’t sound like a date night done right, we don’t know what does. They’ve also got the regular Thai staples, like Som Tom, Pad Thai, Satay and Thai Green Curry, all of which are crowd favourites. We recommend that you make a dinner reservation here because it’s a magical view at night, we’d rather have you experience for yourself.

One of the most romantic restaurants in town, QLA is a gorgeous place, perfect for that special, date night. Their old-school Roast Chicken, Braised Yorkshire Pork Belly, The Garden {smoked chèvre with 18 edible elements} and Creme Brulee are some of the many dishes that keep us coming back for more. Oh, and you might want to keep your cameras at the ready because everything from QLA’s food to their ambience is all a piece of art. For a view of the Qutub Minar, drop by their terrace too.

Dramz Whisky Bar & Lounge

This restaurant’s got one of the most stunning views of the Qutub Minar that’s worth climbing the long flight of stairs. If you’re a whisky lover, there’s nothing better than enjoying a glass of well-aged scotch, some tikkas and a beautiful backdrop. While their food might not be extraordinary, Dramz deserves a shot for all the other pros.

3) Harry Potter’s 11th Birthday Cake

4) Butterbeer

I don’t think anyone who’s read or seen Harry Potter doesn’t want to at least once sip on butterbeer.

Types Of Tea We Aren’t Aware Of Yet




First of all, it’s important to note that true “tea” all comes from the same plant; the Camellia sinensis. The classification of this depends on how the plant’s leaves are prepared and processed. However, in modern times it is not only these traditional teas that enjoy popularity. There is a wide range of herbal drinks made from flowers, grains, leaves, and even mushrooms. While coffee is the drink of choice in most of the Western world, tea dominates the Eastern part of the planet (and the UK). Find out about different types of it and the uses.

1. Black Tea

Via Yourstory

Black tea is allowed to wither, which precedes a process called oxidation (sometimes incorrectly referred to as fermentation). During which water evaporates out of the leaf and the leaf absorbs more oxygen from the air. It usually undergoes full oxidation, and the results are the characteristic dark brown and black leaf. The typically more robust and pronounced flavors of this is got when brewed appropriately. Moreover, higher caffeine content  is seen depending on the type and brewing technique.

2. Oolong Tea

Via Hatvala

Oolong tea (also known as wulong tea) is allowed to undergo partial oxidation. These teas have a caffeine content between that of green teas and black teas. The flavor of oolong (wulong) teas is typically not as robust as blacks or as subtle as greens, but has its own extremely fragrant and intriguing tones. Oolongs (wulongs) are often compared to the taste and aroma of fresh flowers or fresh fruit.

3. White Tea

White tea is the most delicate of all teas. They are appreciated for their subtlety, complexity, and natural sweetness. They are hand-processed using the youngest shoots of the tea plant, with no oxidation. When brewed correctly, with a very low temperature and a short steeping time, white teas can produce low amounts of caffeine. Of course, steeping with hotter temperature and longer time will extract more caffeine. But certainly by definition, this does not have less caffeine than other teas.

4. Masala chai
