Review: Out Of The Box (Cafe – Lounge)
Shop No. 5, First & Second Floor, Khan Market, Delhi. Contact # 011 49422211
On a lazy Sunday afternoon, whats better than the enchanting streets of khan market popularly known as Khan. Though, we had an array of options it dint take us much time to finalize on OTB a.k.a Out of the box cafe. Synonymous to its name the Out of the Box cafe surely provides a series of options right from Italian to Lebanese with an tinge of Chinese and Indian cuisines.
The ultra chic decor along with the earthy feel brings in sense of warmth and comfort. The Khan market outlet had recently been revamped and what makes it more vibrant is the music. Right from techno house and trance, they have it on their list.
Though they have an extensive menu not to forget the day long happy hours , we decided to stick to the basics of ordering summer coolers and a sumptuous meal for two and share between three of us.
Ordering food at OTB might turn out to be an upheaval task, of you are visiting for the first time. With so many options we did not dare to go beyond the first few pages of the menu.
Flipping over the menu i just happened to spot “Keema Pav” which is a popular recipe from the streets of Mumbai. Though initially apprehensive i decided to give it a shot, and it proved to be worthwhile. The keema in recipe was extremely juicy , accompanied with a special kind of bread called the “Bun” or ” Pav” known in the western part of India.
The vegetarians treated themselves with Pizza All E Verdure, with grilled vegetables and topped with cheese, what made the pizza special were the basil leaves and thin crust of the pizza. The size of the serving was decent enough to serve two.
They had a straight bar menu with a few mocktails, so we decided to order Virgin Mojito and Peach iced tea to beat the summer heat. Though the iced tea was a bit sour, the Mojito made up for it with the fresh mint leaves and loads of crushed ice.
The plus points were happy and courteous staff, that guided you through the menu. However, it took about a good half an hour for the food to arrive in lots.
All in all it was a pleasant experience to sit and relax with your friends. The diverse menu proves to be a boon for some bane for others. The cafe is already popular among youngsters due the all day long happy hours.
A meal for three costed a little over 1900, implying approximately 650 per person which is decent for a sunday brunch.
