#Unlocking18Plus With A Gala Celebration...

18+ Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

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.

The decor and ambience reflect a collector's delight with an array of vintage bikes adorning the premises and a life-size bicycle being hosted on one of the walls. 18+ is essentially a place with a quirk 'n' pop vibe, with good food being their USP. It is a place that would appeal highly to the youngsters - especially with their quick bites and Hookahs. 

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: 

                               Aaloo and Mix Paranthe
                               Karare Aaloo
                               Aam Ka Achaar
                               Gulab Jamun 

  • 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. :)

Looking forward to the launch of Chawlas2 in the immediate vicinity to 18+ soon. Here's hoping that will be fantastic as well. :)
