Table Nine Makes It Fine

Isn’t it amazing, if you come across a passionate dance-duo who have successfully done 8 big reality shows in India since 2006 and then turning out to be a real ‘Baazigar’ by virtue of showing guts to open up Table Nine, a Shisha cum pure veg café-kitchen?

Yes, believe it, or not, that’s the story of Saurabh-Vivek.

Saurabh Bangani and Vivek Jaiswal started their dancing career way back in 2004 with local school level competitions and made their way up to state, national and International level dance competitions. In 2011, what it all started as a small dance class, gradually grown in leaps and bounds and has now become a multi activity centre where they groom talents young and old. BORN2DANCE PERFORMING ARTS is an Activity Training Institute for imparting training of different courses and event management services with over 200+ performances in Reality Shows, Talent Hunt and Events across the Globe.

Table Nine is their latest stunt in the market. I slipped into it on a lazy Sunday afternoon when the rush was about to set in and I bumped into two super cool guys, Saurabh and Vivek. It started on 10th October, 2018 just opposite to Derozio College on the roadside at Rajarhat Road, New Town. And it is yet to pick up in spite of the lovely décor and lip-smacking veg cuisines. The major reason probably, to my mind, is its awkward location. Food lovers having their personal vehicle can only venture out to reach here. But those who are not lucky enough to possess a personal vehicle will find it difficult to reach out.

Somewhat dark with a dramatic Lumiere had set the tone of the approaching Sunday evening. And with the rhythmic number in full blown, you would certainly expect a dancing floor in front. Alas!! There is no such arrangement. Do not get disheartened though, for not being able to shake your legs. Instead try out some fabulous mocktails and pure veg Chinese and Italian delicacies.

I am both a mocktail and cocktail lover. Since this is a NO ALCOHOL zone, I had to rely on mocktails only. And I had apprehensions whether I’ll get my mocktail well-prepared. And they really impressed me in no time. The freshness in the drink usually comes from the mint. And they strike a magic by incorporating a twist of cucumber. Presented beautifully, this is one of the virgin mojitos in town. So if you’re a mojito lover like me, go ahead and definitely try it.

Black Forest Shake: This shake had 3 layers. The bottom layer contains berry jelly. Middle is filled up with a dollop of cream and the thick chocolate shake served on that. The shake is decorate with chocolate shaves, an Oreo and a cherry. It was a burst of the flavours of the famous black forest combination.

Crispy Potato Cheesy Roll: The dish was drizzled with cheese clustered with a tangy, tasty dip. The rolls are neither too crisp nor too soft. A great munch to have with hookahs or mocktails.

Crispy Chilli Babycorn: It is pretty common dish, known to one and all. But I loved their style of preparation. Neither too much sauce coated, nor too less. Just the perfect balance. And a little spray of sesame seeds made the dish more interesting.

Special Pizza: Cheesy pizza with Generous toppings. Gooey cheese with crispy french fries. And it is big one!

Hara Bhara Kebab: The coatings are a bit crisp, which enhanced the taste of the kebabs. They garnished the dish with cashews and peas and served with a mint yoghurt dip.

Hakka Noodles: Nothing exceptional. But I loved the mild flavours. The noodles are thin. Tossed beautifully, and wasn’t too oily.

Veg Manchurian: A perfect, inseparable match for the noodles. This consisted of soft vegetable balls tossed in a spicy sauce. I loved the flavours of this one.

Screw Driver transcends You to a Different World

Cocktails for Vodka Lovers, My Choice

Star drink of 80s, vodka still rules the shelf. The distilled spirit has a charm of its own. This is winning everyone’s taste for spirit. The specialty of vodka is, it can mix easily, thus adding kick to any drink. The spirit retains its texture even after mixing it with any type of flavour.

I prefer vodka with my cocktail over hard on the rocks. A dash of tomato juice with a wedge of lime and lip smacking salt over the rim is simply sublime. Freshly squeezed orange juice mixed with the spirit along with a wedge of orange. That is the idea of a perfect cocktail party. Vodka has a certain level of finesse and sophistication in it, with the potential to become rowdy and wild if necessary. In my opinion, it is one of the most versatile types of liquor there is.

 

I have had a few house parties and vodka has never disappointed me. It has the superpower of turning even the most boring people to party animals, if you know what I mean. Be it a planned affair or an impromptu set up, vodka will always set the scene of an epic party. Here’s some of the cocktail that tops my list, if I am ever planning a house party.

  • Screw Driver

Easy to prepare vodka based drink. If you are ever having a house party, this is the D- drink to serve. All you need is freshly squeezed orange juice and your drink is ready to be served. Remember to chill it before serving to your quest. Its tangy fruity flavour is ideal both for lunch and dinner.

  • Cosmopolitan

Vodka is ideal for light fruit flavoured drink. And while talking about light fruit flavoured cocktails, what can be better than Cosmos. Classic pink drink topped with a cranberry, sweet and sultry at the same time. A party winner. If you are having a long day just sit by the corner with a glass of cosmopolitan. Take small sips, let the flavour of cranberry and orange roll on your tongue and silently observe those around you.

  • Madras

Madras reminds me of the setting sun. It is the perfect drink of the afternoon, when the sun is just setting over the horizon. Spend your lazy afternoon by the pool with this glass of orange red drink. The fruity flavour of orange with a dash of cranberry mixed with vodka is the drink to savour.

  • Bloody Mary

Unlike all cocktails, which are sweet and succulent, this is on the savoury side. The tangy and spicy drink is ideal for those who don’t like their cocktail sweet. The kick of salt with every swig, flavours of Bloody Mary just plays around your taste bud. Take it slow; relish every sip if you are trying this drink for the first time.

  • Vodka Gimlet

Sweet and tangy taste is always a winner when it comes to vodka based cocktails. Vodka and lime, always seems to go hand in hand. And this drink is simple to make and refreshing to taste. All you need is lemon juice and sugar syrup, and off course the guest of honour, Vodka. Simple as it looks, it has a different effect on the taste bud. Sit with your friends and chill over a glass of Vodka Gimlet.

Be it a sophisticated office party or a fun wild party with your friends, vodka is your drink. The biggest advantage it has is that the vodka based cocktails are simple, classy and very easy to make. Moreover, the ingredients are easy to get and most importantly, pocket friendly.

So, when are you planning your next house party?
