Lunching At Sancho’s

I’ve always considered Mexican food to be the perfect pick-me-up. Maybe it’s the merry crunch of nachos, or the vibrant salsa, the indulgent cheese, or the heat and the all-round freshness of the cuisine. It hits the spot every time, but sadly, the city has very few favourites for a fun fiesta. After a recent…

Sunday Brunch at The Glass House

We had heard much about The Glass House before we decided that it’s about time we paid a visit to see for ourselves how much of the chitter chatter were real. I liked the sound of it. In my mind, I had pictured a swanky place exemplifying modern minimalist architecture, and with dreamy lights lending…

Weekend with Mr. Bean

Where do you take a 10-year old to grab a quick bite? Amongst the many places that were hovering in my head, a cafe seemed like the best bet. Especially with a kid who is extremely picky about her choice of food. So it was Mr. Bean’s Home Cafe at Koramangala.

Lunching at Rasa India

Pink is a colour that I find hard to ignore. So when we spotted the bright pink restaurant called Rasa at CMH Road, we had to pay a visit despite the fact that they serve pure vegetarian food. Yes, I still find it extremely difficult to sit through a meat-free meal. But the simple, flavoursome,…

Lunching at Hanging Gardens Restaurant

As much as I hate to admit this but my food expeditions in Bangalore most often centres around Koramangala, Indiranagar and MG Road. Whitefield and other places happen once in a while when we gear up for a long drive though that requires much planning. However, one fine Sunday, we did manage to make our…

A Quick Lunch At Bungalow 9, Mumbai

Change is the only constant they say. So yes, Mumbai seemed much different this time to what I had remembered of it from my visit six years ago. What I love about the city is the vibe. Everything seems to be bustling with life. And when it comes to food, people are ever so ready…

Why We Love To Monkey Around!

What is it about those certain restaurants/ eateries that compel you to keep heading back again and again? It’s almost like the thought dwells somewhere in your mind and when you are asked to suggest a place it automatically pops up. Monkey Bar is one such place that I am always up and ready to…

A Bistronomic Experience at Le Bistro du Parc, New Delhi

Of late there has been a buzz that Delhi houses some excellent French cafes. So in the quest to find one of the best ones to dine at in my recent trip to the capital city, recommendations started pouring in for Le Bistro du Parc. So it was decided. And I set out for a…

Review: Guppi by Ai, New Delhi

Japanese cuisine has always intrigued me. I guess it has much to do with their style of preparation, strict attention to freshness of ingredients, and the bold flavours that can make you forget everything else as you take your bite. What I also like is their dedication to the preparation of food which seems less…

Tea Mania At Infinitea

The concept of tea parties has always fascinated me. Something about those delicate crockery with pretty patterns, the sparkling clean linen, the aroma of freshly brewed tea and the assortment of delectable short bites to keep conversations going. And growing up in a tea estate being part of this culture, any such occasion here in…

Rediscovering South Indian Cuisine At Bon South

A decade ago when I first stepped into the southern part of the country, my knowledge of South Indian cuisine was limited (shamefully) to dosa, idli, vada, sambar and curd rice. Back in the East, those were the commonly served items at the restaurants and growing up, I thought that was the end to South…
