On Sunday, February 1st, 2015, gather your friends and family and head out to the ‘Gastro Bazaar’, at Monkey Bar, Vasant Kunj, to check out an awesome line up of home-made goodies, kitchen accessories, single origin coffees, contests and shopping. We have scoured the city and even crossed its borders to pick out the yummiest, coolest home grown brands and brought them all to one destination. The highlight of the day is the ‘Gastro-Quotient’, a first of its kind foodie quiz in Delhi. Come test your knowledge at this multi-format, open quiz, with a series of fun questions around all things food. Test your general knowledge on a range of subjects from food & pop culture; food personalities; ingredients & equipment; desi favourites; exotic dishes; history & geography to beverages; sweets & desserts. Why there’s even a ‘taste test’ to challenge your taste buds and have you compete for the ‘Top Foodie’ spot. So if you have it in you, grab another two buddies, to make a team of 3, and register with the form uploaded on the LBB website (www.littleblackbookdelhi.com) to participate in the preliminary round. The final round conducted by our very own Chef Manu Chandra, will help select the winning team for the day, which stand a chance to win mega food hampers, as well as bragging rights of having the highest Foodie Quotient in the city!

No quizzical thoughts for those who want to indulge though! Think outside the shop, when it comes to the special bazaar that brings together some of the city’s favourite as well as undiscovered food-prenuers, food lovers and creators. Choose from cupcakes to macaroons, from delectable tiny little nibbles to hearty fillers, or just shop for all these yummy goodies and carry them all home. The stalls include Jimmy’s Gourmet Kitchen with mind boggling varieties of hummus and over 30 varieties of dips and sauces; Honey Twigs, offers a delicious and nutritious single servings of honey; for some rustic charm, the Leaping Caravan, has an awesome Indian menu trail that takes you from Kolkata to Kabul with dishes created from age old recipes. If it is sweets you crave, then the Sweetmoon Bakeshop, all the way from Bengaluru, brings some sinful desserts. Bowls of steaming hot soups, and amazing Asian food in a bowl from Happy Hakka. Buy some delicious single origin coffees from Kaffa Cerrado or get your sushi fix at Futomaki. This is a spread that is a great mix of International and regional cuisines, with lots of little surprises and discoveries planned along the way. There is action aplenty with hourly contests, from the ‘burger face-off’ to the ‘ice cream tub contest’, and sundowners’ session with our in-house DJ, to wind up a perfect day.

If you thought this variety was too staggering, pop in to Monkey Bar’s stall, where you can combine your sweet tooth with the boozy goodness of cocktail inspired macaroons and éclairs, in the cool Maanga, Mojito, Cosmopolitan and B52 flavours. Here you can also pick out some good ol’ fashioned oatmeal and raisin cookies, or gooey chocolate cookies. If you still need your favourite tipple, head to the Do-It-Yourself Cocktail counter, inside Monkey Bar, where you can fix cold capriaoskas and mojitos till the sun comes down.  What’s more, you never have to worry about an empty tummy, as you can indulge in some of the favourites from the Monkey Bar menu like the MoBar Burger or Chicken Katsu Burger or a bowl of hot steaming Laksa.
