Gurgaon: You need not go looking for menus from different food outlets now. The Gurgaon-based home delivery platform Bueno will cater to all your cuisine woes by offering American, Mexican, European, Italian, Lebanese, Indian and Asian cuisines at your doorstep.

Bueno comes with the convenience of the online and app route.

What makes Bueno stand out from most home delivery platforms is that for those who either live or work in the capital suburb, it is a one-stop to get the most popular dishes from all seven cuisines.

Trying out its pasta, biryani, burgers and brownies, all prepared by Bueno’s team of five-star chefs, turned out to be satisfactory.

Explaining the concept behind the platform, Bueno co-founder Rohan Arora told reporters: “As the name suggests, Bueno means good. It is largely about serving good food. We don’t stand for a specific cuisine, we serve in all locations here (in Gurgaon) as our platform is consumer- centric.

“People are different, they eat different things, so why do you really need to contain them to ‘I serve Indian, I serve Mexican or I serve Chinese’ be there? I serve what you want to eat.”

The Bueno special chicken biryani with raita (flavored and beaten curd) will impress you with its good quantity, especially if you are the only one eating it and depending on your hunger level. The chicken was well-cooked and the spices were just right – neither too chilli nor too bland.

“Indian cuisine sells the most here; biryanis and curries the most. Then comes Italian pasta and Chinese dishes are ordered often. But these are meals and away from meals, snacky food, rolls and burgers sell really good,” Arora said.

It was best then to try the burgers, which turned out to be scrumptious.

The mutton seekh burger was different and melted in the mouth. Huge and packed with minced meat and veggies, this one is a must try if you are a burger lover.

Also, if you are inclined towards healthy food, try the pita bread and hummus. While the hummus is finger-licking good, the pita bread tasted like white bread after a while.

The pasta, for many, is a safer option to order from an international cuisine outlet. So, I went with the penne basil pesto chicken variety. But something was amiss. Perhaps some cheese? A caution: Consume the pasta when it arrives, or the dried version won’t be tempting at all!

Now for those with a sweet tooth, Bueno is coming up with a broader and new menu, but still offers walnut brownie, tiramisu (in a jar) and blueberry cheesecake (in a jar). The brownie is a delight. Keep some vanilla ice-cream ready in the freezer, and it gets better with every bite.

The Bueno team plans to expand operations in Delhi and Noida, but they want Gurgaon to be “our anchor”. (Kishori Sud, IANS)

Due to the harmful effects of overdose, like increased risk of bleeding,  the upper limit of consumption for adults is 1,500 IU/day for supplements made from the natural form of the Vitamin and 1,100 IU/day for supplements made from synthetic vitamin-E. The upper limit is lower in children when compared to the adults.
