I always remember Raasta as one of the oldest HKV restaurants and how it used to be the 'IT' place during my college days: one that was synonymous with partying. After a very successful run in the village, the well-loved eatery has now moved to the less crowded Aurobindo Marg {Green Park} and that too, with a stunning rooftop. There's lots of space on both the floors to move around and dance, along with a dedicated elevated area for live gigs. 

The best bit? They've also revamped the menu. You'll see some nice additions, along with the signature dishes that have been retained. Here's a lowdown of everything I tried {and liked}.

I started off with Perfect Pair from their signature cocktail menu. It was gin based, with a bit of vodka, green apple chunks, basil and mint. Even though it was on the sweeter side, I quite liked the overall combination. There's also a whole range of bongtails {cocktails served in a bong} - I didn't try any but they sure looked Instagram worthy. 

Food-wise too, you'd be spoilt for choice. I started off with Jalapeno Cheese Cigar Rolls on the chef's recommendation and loved the crispy skin against the gooey cheese stuffing. They served it with a harissa chilli dip that went with the rolls very well. Next up, the Mushroom Galouti {served on thin slices of parantha} were one of the softest I have ever had. I couldn't even pick one without breaking it. Along came the classic mint chutney and onion salad. If you'd like some variety in your starters, the Big Boy Platter might be a wise choice. It has a mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian items like chicken wings, paneer tikka, cigar rolls, fish fingers and more.

My favourite thing however, was the Raasta Special Pizza with Spinach, mushrooms and feta. The non-vegetarians on the tables were pretty happy with the Angry Birds Pizza that came with big chunks of spicy chicken tikka. If you want to order just one dish that does it all, go for the Mushroom Patty Burger, it makes for a complete {and very filling} meal in itself. Comes with a satisfactory amount of cheese and some fries on the side. 

I am not sure if the desserts are made in-house, but they got us a beautiful Banoffee Pie jar at the end that was just the perfect end to my Sunday Brunch. Otherwise, the gooey Brownies + Chocolate Ice-cream would definitely be a treat for the chocolate lovers.
