In the frenetic business and financial hub of Connaught Place, the cheerful Farzi Cafe adds a modern touch on Indian cuisine through the use of 'molecular gastronomy' technology. The menu also offers non-Indian dishes and an array of 'bunta' (traditional homemade) cocktails and liquor options to choose from. There's traditional live music on Saturdays.
In 2010, Indians drank 837,000 tonnes of tea and 108,000 tonnes of coffee. India has been a nation of tea drinkers for centuries, but in recent decades, coffee has been on the rise. There are cafés all over the place in New Delhi, and big café chains are appearing more and more around the city. However, you will still find small tea shops in every corner where you can grab your daily cup of tea.
