Want your Diwali party to be a success? Leave the décor and lighting to your girlfriend, and spend some time in ensuring there’s a never-ending supply of super delicious food and drinks. Trust us, that’s all your friends are looking for. Oh, of course, they’re hoping to win a few rounds and go back home richer!
So, whether you’re in New Delhi or Mumbai, here’s where you should get the grub.
1. BAR WIZARD
Why bother with fixing your guests’ drinks when you can get professional bartenders to do it for you. Especially since missing a single round of flash can result in lost opportunity! Think of a theme, give Bar Wizard your list, and they’ll set it all up for you, along with some bar tricks that can keep the non-gamblers entertained. Hawaiian cocktails maybe?
2. FOOD INC
Does the thought of food from Yum Yum Tree and its younger sibling Yum Yum Cha make you super hungry? Then Food Inc is for you. Run by restaurateur Varun Tuli, this full-service catering company has an impressive line-up of Indian and Asian cuisine. We’d go with their sushis, dim sums and ramen bowls.
3. K’s KITCHEN
Coastal food can be tricky to find in this land-locked city. Your friends won’t stop thanking you for giving them this, especially if it's as good as home-cooked. K’s Kitchen dabbles in Indian food, recipes of which have been passed down generations. They’re known for their masala fish fry, prawn moilee, and pork vindaloo.
1. GAIA GOURMET
Le Cordon Bleu trained chef Shilarna Vaze runs Gaia Gourmet with her Swiss-French husband Christophe Perrin. While the core of their menu is classic French, they also have expertise in cuisines as varied as Italian, Japanese, Maharashtrian and American Barbeque. Care for some crab quinoa salad, prawn green curry, maki sushi or chicken khao suey?
2. LITTLE FOOD CO.
When you’ve got a chef with experience in food styling, restaurant menu development, and kitchen training, you know that you’re going to get food that doesn’t just taste good, but looks good as well. Already thinking of your party going viral on Snapchat? Bhakti Mehta and her team at Little Food Co. can make that happen.
Worried about space to set up a full-blown bar? Drinq’s ninjas have the training to work within the limits of Mumbai’s 2x2 apartments. All they need is a tiny corner to set up their portable bar. And they can even help you clean-up later. Phew! #relief
