I have mentioned in other reviews of Delhi’s Shahpurjat district that this little urban village is changing at the speed of light, as a recent hot humid afternoon’s wandering confirmed.
There are boutiques a-plenty and new restaurants and cafés, and seeing it through the eyes of my house guest, a European first timer to Shahpurjat, it really has become a super buzzy little place.
5 of us went for lunch at “Ivy and Bean”, a cute place serving Australian fusion food.
Absolutely loved the look and feel of the place.
We ate inside, in the air-conditioned dining room, but the gorgeous outdoor area (shown below) is clearly crying out to be frequented, once the weather cools down a little :

Everyone enjoyed their food, other than Nisha, who said her pizza was “ordinary and nothing special”. 3 of us had fish, and all loved it – interesting mashed potatoes – and Anjulie’s stuffed peppers were apparently delicious.

The portion of fish wasn’t huge, but after the large, fresh salads, it was actually exactly the correct amount of food.
Service was a tad on the slow side, but to be fair we did order in dribs and drabs, as our group straggled in at different times.
The current menu can be seen on the zomato website.
I didn’t tell them I blogged, nor that I write reviews, and we paid our own bill.
Will I go back? Most definitely.
I can foresee a lazy late morning coffee and some browsing from the honesty library, come the winter.
