Kaffeine Opens in HKV
We stopped by this new “grill and beer bar” for lunch, hoping for a fish tikka accompanied by a cold one. The menu for the day, posted helpfully on the door, showed bacon wrapped prawns and a salmon steak – lovely! - but the chef, unfortunately, wasn’t in to cook up anything for us. Also, no beer.
A small place run by Yeti’s landlord, Kaffeine plans to procure a liquor license soon. For the near future, however, they plan to serve only Kingfisher, Tuborg, and Stella Artois, a rather stingy selection for a beer bar.
Disheartened, we settled for a frappuccino that was over-sweet and over-priced, even if it was made from Kenyan beans, and didn’t feel brave enough to sample the weary-looking croissants and puffs displayed in a small glass case.
On the plus side, they do have free wi-fi and if you ask nicely, the owner will slip you a beer despite not having a license.
Getting there: 50 A Hauz Khas Village, call 64690579, Rs 209 for a frappuccino.
