Lock n Key in the Cross Point Mall of Gurgaon in Dlf Phase 4. They serve North Indian and Continental cuisine food, but nothing authentic, all fusion and thats the best part. Fusion food is very much in, it tastes well, is presented well, chef can play with ingredients and spices & there won’t be an easy flaw to point out in the dish. Also, there was one thing that I don’t remember I have seen or heard anywhere before i.e barrelled cocktails. They had barrelled several cocktails, which we knew about just the straight drinks, or scotch whiskey to be specific.
Coming to my experience here, I had:
Petit Gouda Naan: Mini naan with gouda cheese stuffed in them, and served with home made onion chutney. Probably the best thing I had was this, had to order another portion of it, one just cant get enough of it in one portion if sharing with someone else. The onion chutney served with it made taste much more succulent.
Pesto Flatbread: Basically it was a pizza, cut into slices and served as a flat bread with the toppings of sun dried tomatoes, jalapeños and crispy onions with cheese on it. This too was very much luscious.
Kokum Curry: Cooked in coconut gravy with stir fried vegetables in it. It was served with malabar paratha, one of the best breads to have with such curries or any curry whatsoever.
Crunchy Papardelle: This is a fusion of pasta with mushroom and truffle oil on top. It also had crushed papad toppings on it and was also presented with the same crushed papad surrounding the pasta in the platter. But, honestly, the idea of this didn’t sounded much tempting, though it was too good to have. The flavour and the essence of sauces and oil in the pasta were very strong and gave it an extra edge.
Detox Retox: This was gin based cocktail, gin used by them in it was “Gordon’s”. Other than that, the infusions in it were of citrus, black pepper, turmeric and tonic water.
Hoot-Dini: A whiskey based cocktail, totally unmissable. Was on a sweeter note as it had pineapple juice in it. More, it had agave and citrus too and the whiskey in it was Red Label (J.W.)
Opposite Attract: Tequila and red wine based cocktail with lime and bitters infused in it. It had mint leaves decorated on top and blackberry on top in a dessert spoon.
