Cafe Lota - A Unique cafe inside National Crafts Museum, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi

I have heard a lot about this cafe from my friends and also on Zomato (which has a constant rating over 4.5 on various social media platforms). It has been in my list from quite a long time, finally on the eve of new year, me & my partner Newfangled Girl have planned to visit the place. We reached at around 4 PM but got to know that its 2 hours waiting. We didn't know that & we just added our names in the waiting list. As this cafe is associated with National Crafts Museum, so killed our time visitng it. It was a good experience inside and we saw many new crafts and art work inside, We saw traditional folk dance, hand art paintings, various sculptors, & village theme models like Delhi Haat. (Note:- Museum has a free entry)

Here are few pics of the Crafts museum-

Experience at Cafe Lota

Finally after killing some more time around the area, we have got our turn. We moved in and it was very nice. Lights, Decor, everything was superb. We asked waiter to choose whatever he wants us to try in veg. He suggested us to try for Palak Chaat & Chila. We ordered the same, What to say, it was so delicious that we have had no words. Later, we ordered Gatte ki Sabji - Which was like super awesome. I could never imagined that such a boring vegetable could be so delicious.
