A Saturday With Food & Wine At The Taj West End

I love to go to The Taj West End for a lot of reasons. The obvious would be it being one of the most beautiful properties in Bangalore followed by the brilliant culinary brigade who never fail in making your meal a memorable one. So last weekend when I was invited to a food and…

When The Egg Came First, At Monkey Bar

I have a habit of asking people what they’d choose if they could eat only one thing for the rest of their lives.
