Did I hear Bakery?
August 29, 2010 § 1 Comment
People close to me know about my affinity for desserts. If given a choice, I would happily skip main course just to have desserts. Needless to say, every time I hear about a new bakery, I have to give it a try. (That’s not saying my local bakery is bad, it’s pretty awesome to say least, but still. greedy me..) This time, my attention was caught by a particular post on a travel forum that I frequent. Someone was looking for good Bagels in Delhi, and someone else found a bakery serving authentic ones. So, as usual, I made a note to visit it. Chance to do so came soon. U wanted to catch up on breakfast. What better place for breakfast than a bakery. So we headed to Red Moon bakery in Sarita Vihar. (Now you know how crazy I’m for this stuff. Driving all the way there just to sample few things). So here’s the review –
Ambiance: Zilch. It’s a bakery where you buy stuff and leave. No place to sit down. 4 people would be too much for the tiny space it has. But the smell of freshly baked goods is heavenly.
Food Items: It was hard to decide what to order by just looking at the display. Everything looked so tempting. After much deliberation, we ended up ordering lemon tart, butter tart, lemon meringue tart, scone and of course, sesame bagels. First we tried butter tarts, yummmm. Then Lemon ones and I thought I would die of pleasure. But I hadn’t tasted the Meringue ones yet. Have I? Once you try Lemon Meringue Tart, you just can’t go back. Meringue cloud has to be one of the best I’ve tried. Soft, melts in your mouth. Lemon tart below the could was as delicious as the could above. A perfect compliment. We had bagels afterward. Unfortunately, all these experiments were done in U’s car, so there was absence of butter. Bagels were good. But after tasting that polishing off that Meringue Tart, it was hard to appreciate them. 🙂 Same goes for Scone. It was delicious. But doesn’t come close to heavenly Meringue Tart. Next time, I’m saving this Tart for last, So I can enjoy everything fairly first.
Verdict: 4.5 out of 5 (I’m taking away .5 star for not been able to sit and keep on ordering). Definitely one of my favorite bakeries now. If they ever decide to have a seating place, I think I’ll become a fixture and happily get fat. Maybe I should take baking lessons from them.
Additional Info: They do deliver to different areas of city, but not to Noida. As Anna (Owner) explained, the inter state taxes eat up their profit. So there’s another thing you can blame government for. Here’s the link http://www.redmoonbakery.com/
