Visit The Turkey Project for the best sangria in Delhi!

By 18:29 Saturday 29 February 2020 , ,

Tucked in a cozy corner of the Defence Colony DDA Complex {near Nizam's}, the Turkey Project is an underrated sangria bar + cafe not too many people in my social circle know about. Perhaps its location in a fairly quiet market doesn't let it enjoy the kind of limelight it deserves but I am SO glad to have discovered it soon after it opened. 

The interiors are muted and minimal but noticeable at the same time owing to some fantastic pop art on the walls. It's your friendly neighbourhood bar minus the regular disturbances, like loud crowds and annoying music. 

We started off with the in-house speciality: Strawberry and Bubblegum Cheese Tea. An unconventional beverage, served chilled, with liquid cream cheese floating on top and some cracker crumbs for crunch. It was sweet, tangy, refreshing and filling at the same time. The taste and texture felt similar to eating jello and icecream together!

Coming to the star-seller on the menu, Bombshell Betty is the indisputable queen of sangrias. A ball of frozen mix berry sorbet sits in a pool of red wine and berry juice, along with some rose petals and mint leaves for visual appeal. One sip and I knew that THIS is the cocktail that I {and my Instagram feed} had been waiting for. 

Coming to the food, 

For starters, my friend ordered Fricken, which was simply fried boneless chicken served with mayo and sriracha, and wasn't disappointed. I went for the Liquid Cheese Balls but wasn't wowed. I will however, definitely recommend the Aglio Olio spaghetti that is full of flavour and the thin crust pizzas. 

We ended our meal with Cotton Cheesecake with a hefty dose of nutella and a cheese sponge that was light as air and melt-in-mouth. It is my second favourite thing on the menu after the sangria. 

So head to The Turkey Project if you're looking for a simple, non-pretentious bar that does good food and great cocktails and isn't too mainstream {yet}.
