Tip from Trip101 local expert

Picture this: you are sipping on a cocktail with your special someone on the 20th floor of a rooftop bar while soaking in the sights of a breathtakingly beautiful city skyline and enjoying a heavy downpour and the smell of petrichor from the first summer rain. A perfect romantic date, isn't it? Ozora is special for its ambiance, sure, but who can forget just how delicious the food is? I love their pan-tossed mushrooms and salt and pepper prawns. Though I am not the person to experiment with my food and prefer to stick to the usual fare, I did try the Chicken Tikka Makhani Risotto at Ozora and it blew my mind away. My brother tells me that the Te Basilico cocktail is also a must-try!

Raj's Spanish Cafe on Sudder Street, near New Market and close to this RestoBar, is an unassuming place hidden inside an alleyway. It's perfect for appeasing your hunger pangs after a satisfying shopping session in the iconic New Market. The relaxed atmosphere of the cafe, along with handwritten messages left on the walls by previous guests, make for a great casual hangout session. And the food will perfectly accompany your conversations, or may even become the topic of the conversation. Their wood-fired pizzas are the best. Apart from that, you can also try the 'pollo asado con pure de patata' (barbecued chicken with mashed potato). Another absolute crowd favorite is the piping hot chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream on the side - perfect death in every mouthful! 🫠

The last time I visited Level Seven was with my tribe. All of us in the group are pizza lovers, so we ordered the barbeque chicken pizza along with Virgin Mojito and Blue Lagoon mocktails. One of us tried a hookah, too. If you would like to let your hair down and shake a leg while enjoying fun conversations with friends over delicious food, then you must visit this rooftop lounge. The ambiance is awesome and I can personally vouch for it.
