Getafix- guilt free indulgence #NewInTown

Getafix

Getafix

When I first got the invite to review/visit Getafix in Greater kailash market, I was in dilemma due to its image of a “Cafe that serves Healthy Food” or at least that’s what I thought initially. But soon I decided to finally go and visit a place that claims to have tasty and healthy food. Let me tell you one thing, we foodies have bad eating habits especially when you’re a food blogger, you get to eat a lot of junk and oily food. So this time it was a pleasant surprise to get an invite for trying a different sort of food.

There are way too many cafe’s in the market these days which claim themselves to be serving healthy/organic/guilt free food but how many out of all those are worth trying is the question. Getafix, claims nothing out of all these characteristics that I’ve mentioned above. They simply serve you what they would want to have without feeling guilty, of course they have kept taste and options in mind, so that they don’t bore the customers with repetitive stuff. With teal color brick walls one one side and a small book shelf at the entrance, this place will make you fall in love with itself as soon as you enter. At least it did made me fall in love with it and music is another highlight apart from food. The owners Dhruv and Aanandita have got some amazing taste in both music and food.

Getafix has a lot to offer you, from choice of pancakes to omelettes and appetizers to freshly made pastas and pizzas. To start with I ordered pancakes with banana and honey. Dhruv, the founder of the cafe told me the story behind these pancakes, so initially they did 30%  whole wheat and 70% oats but it didn’t come out as expected and as they just cannot compromise on the taste part, they decided to find a way out and came up with this unique way of making thin pancakes and filling it with ricotta and nuts and the choice of topping/filling you wanted. My verdict- these pancakes are simply refreshing than your usual fluffy pancakes which eventually become heavy on your stomach. They serve the pancakes with 3 dips, honey, maple syrup and fruit compote. A MUST HAVE!

You always thought of having smoothies but couldn’t, because the ingredients and look of it was enough to fill your stomach? Well if that was the case then try the smoothies here and I bet you’ll come for more next time. The cafe has an extensive menu of juices and smoothies, all being freshly prepared with seasonal fruits. They do have some options which might contain canned pulp or fruits but they do not appreciate it and hence, they have variety of seasonal fruits to interchange with the existing option in a particular smoothie or juice. I opted for Berranana Fix and my friend opted for Khal Strawgo Fix. Berranana Fix has Banana, Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberry and Yoghurt and Khal Stawgo fix has got Mango, Strawberry, Basil and Yoghurt. As I told you above that they do not suggest using nonseasonal fruits, so the mango was changed to kiwi and trust me each of them tasted better than the other.

After my fix of smoothies and pancake, I ordered Air fried fish and chips and Mexican Bowl. I know a lot of people who swear by the air fried dishes but this was my first time and let me assure you, the fish and chips are super! Brilliant in taste, perfectly cooked and almost zero oil. The food here is neither too spicy nor bland because I know after hearing the word ‘Healthy’ most of us associate with the word ‘Bland’ or ‘Tasteless’ but Getafix will change your mindset and notion about healthy food being tasteless, as every dish here is as tasty as any other oily, heavy dish or maybe better.

The Mexican bowl has, steamed vegetable mexican rice with grilled veggies, black beans and salsa style sauce. Another filling dish which is not at all heavy and perfectly balanced in terms of flavour.

Last but not the least, my meals are incomplete without having desserts, so I decided to go for Diet Vanilla Pound cake and yet again, I wasn’t disappointed at all. The lovely people at Getafix packed me a slice of carrot cake as well which was another surprise. After carrying it for good 1 hour and another half hour of delay, I finally ate it and now it’s added to my list of best carrot cakes in Delhi.
