Two weeks back, I had to meet a friend at Rajouri. One reason, I don’t mind visiting this part of the Delhi now is there’s a direct metro connectivity from Noida. We decided to hang out in the market for a while and then head to BoomBox Reloaded for lunch.
I had been to the place once but my friend who I was with is a regular there. Well, here I present you my dining experience.
Lamps, yes the lamps caught my attention as I entered the restaurant. The ambience is dimly lit yet very pleasant. Creative 3D art pieces and graffiti works adorn the walls. Elegant furniture dominates the space; I absolutely loved the plain wooden chairs in white. There is a well-stocked bar featuring the finest spirits, including my favourite Bira.
If you fancy dining in an open space, head to the terrace. The colourful metal chairs in green, yellow, and red are sure an attraction. Nature lovers like me will love the beautiful flowers and shrubs planted at each corner. Above the terrace is a private space for intimate parties.
I was told by the manager that the evenings are usually busier as they host live music performances. In the past, they had even organised drinking games, comic evenings, and karaoke nights.
Food + Drinks
The menu is expansive. Trust me, it took me almost 30 minutes to decide our order.
Keema Pavs are my weakness. I ordered two plates for us. Soft butter buns filled with medium spiced minced mutton tasted great. I paired it with Orange Candy cocktail. The drink, a concoction of orange juice and vodka, came in a banta bottle. I was pleasantly surprised to see the interesting presentation.
Next to arrive on the table was Watermelon and Feta Salad – fresh watermelon chunks and Greek feta cheese, served on arugula bed topped with balsamic glaze.
We then asked for Bruschetta Chicken, Tandoori Prawns, and Peri Peri Chicken Pizza.
The bruschetta served on toasted bread, topped with minced chicken and Italian herbs can be given a miss, but the Tandoori Prawns are highly recommended. Crispy prawns served with mango jalapeno sauce was clearly the winner of the meal.
The Peri Peri Chicken Pizza that had chunks of chicken marianated in peri peri sauce, and topped with bell peppers, fresh basil, and dollops of cheese was good, but I was expecting it to be spicier.
In mains, we ordered Cottage Cheese Steak — cottage cheese steak filled with spinach and corn, topped with Napoli sauce served over paprika rice and sautéed exotic vegetables was filling and delicious. On recommendation by the server, we asked for the Flying Bird mocktail. A blend of strawberry, lime juice, Tabasco, and black salt, it was quite refreshing.
We ended the meal with Tiramisu, which again was a good preparation with the right amount of sweetness.
