18+ Cafe and Lounge is the newest addition to the food and fun scene in Noida. Located right next to Theos, this one is going to be a crowd-puller and I can say so because I was one of the first few Bloggers to witness the launch of this nicely done place.
Located in the basement just below Chawlas2 (which is also set to open soon), the food that 18+ presents is comfort food in the most pleasant sense, with the simplicity in its presentation and a feel-good factor associated with the food.
The outlet was well-lit and was decked with balloons, completely in Party Mode for the launch. We had a Special Menu offered to us at the Launch and out of a considerable number of items, I tried the following:
- Mrs Chawla's Tray could easily form for a complete meal while reminding you of your mother's Sunday breakfast. Who would decline such an aesthetic and flavorful platter, I ask? It comprised portions of the following items:
Aam Ka Achaar
- Chicken Kali Mirch Tikka - Chicken and Black Pepper is one classic combination and 18+ plays this right.
- Classic Steamed Chicken Momos - This one was served in the authentic Bamboo Basket and was melt-in-mouth.
- Non-Veg Club Sandwich
- Aglio - Olio Spaghetti
Their shakes, mocktails, dessert however, take the cake. Both Banana Nutella Shake and Green Apple Rush were on a different level altogether, while Classic Cold Coffee and Masala Chai had the much-loved old-school flavors.
The Banoffee Ball was presented quite nicely, and do let me know if you know what can beat the fantastic Banana and Toffee combination. As I went around #Unlocking18Plus, this is my must-try item at 18+.
And, it was not just the nice food that scored but also the unmatched hospitality that left a lasting positive impression. With the element of interactive fun and games thrown in, the launch was made more happening. After all, #18PlusIsFun, and Yours Truly won a hamper from Dineout in the fun too! :)
After a gala time with good food and good company, food bloggers brought the launch of #18PlusCafeAndLounge to a close taking home a hamper of foodie goodness thanks to Tops too. :)
