Wanchai by Kylin

A faux food truck; Call me a sucker but I love marketing gimmicks and Wanchai by Kylin plays it well by making it’s frontage resemble a food-truck and in this process also manages to stand out among all the other food-court counters at Select City Walk. Serving North-Eastern […]

Drift

As I think about Drift I find it difficult to categorise it; it’s not exactly a fine dining restaurant and nor is it one of those new-age restaurants that open every day and close every third day. There’s certain cosiness about Drift, a sense of familiarity and nostalgia […]

Tian – The Magic of Food

What’s the idea behind the Bonsai tree? It’s fun. Fun? Someone asked. Yes, it’s our little way to have some fun How so? Curiosity was nearing the cat ready to strike. It’s Fish and you don’t find fish on trees, said Chef Vikramjit Roy about his first presentation […]

The All American Diner

India Habitat Centre is the cultural hub of Delhi. Plays, talks, art shows, film viewings, book festivals, events of all nature occur here on a daily basis. It’s no surprise then that The All American Diner gets to share the spotlight by being one of the three (the […]

Sita Ram Diwan Chand

The joy of having someone who will bring food for you is secondary to only eating that very food. I’m not talking about delivery options, rather having someone (friend, relative, colleague, or staff) to stop over at the legendary Sita Ram Diwan Chand in Paharganj and ask them […]

Häagen-Dazs

Execution, Execution, Execution; I feel like Gordon Ramsay shouting at the top of his lungs at amateur cooks in a game show. Although, you need not to worry for there won’t be any heads rolling on the ground today. Just like a good restaurant needs a good location […]

What the Truck?

It’s the dawn of a new era, well, at least in Gurgaon it is. The food-truck wars have begun. The race for location, food, and promotion is at an all time high. There’s only going to be one winner at the end of it all; you and me […]

Burger Singh

I am in a real dilemma about Burger Singh. It’s got me half way between liking it and not liking it with some positives in the presentation and flavour area, but also some major negatives in the overall taste department. So, when in doubt, the best thing to […]

The Pasta Bowl Company

I’m still smiling. It’s been two days and I’m in love. Love with food that is. It’s not that difficult to find food that gratifies your stomach, but coming across something that satisfies your soul to the very core is almost unheard of. Mind you, this is no […]

InstaPizza

My search for alternative home-delivered pizza options continues with InstaPizza, a relatively recent addition to the scene that challenges the big chains with gusto and comes moderately close to giving them their money’s worth. It’s not an easy business and everyone’s a critic (including me Ha Ha!) and […]

Europe and its Cafe Culture

  Europe. One continent that makes me excited beyond words. I’ve lived in Europe and have travelled through it extensively since an early age, yet I’ve never grown tired of it. So many countries packed together nice and tight; so many languages, cultures, and so much history merely […]

Indian Bistro Company

It’s close to 24 hours and I can’t even think about eating. I’m stuffed. You could hang me up on your trophy wall and people wouldn’t know the difference. It’s been ages since I have had this much food. “This much”, in case you’re wondering, is what I […]
