Some of you might be aware that I love films (and TV series) to the extent that I spend a considerable amount of my time and my earnings on watching them. In fact, before I took on to writing about food, I polished my still non-existent writing skills […]
There’s no smoke without fire they say, and I’m glad that the chef’s fiery passion to cook good food is still burning bright over at Smoke House Deli in DLF Promenade, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. Elegance, charm, class and one of the best services I’ve come across in […]
I’ll be honest – I always am on the blog but just to reiterate the fact – in saying that off late I’ve become wary of small establishments that have cropped up in the hundreds across the city, mainly doing deliveries, having limited seating, with an atmosphere that […]
Eating at Kyoto is a humbling experience. Kyoto being not the Japanese city, but a small restaurant in Gurgaon serving, you guessed it, Japanese food. It’s a quiet place in all respects; the guests are subdued, the decor is simple, the service is gentle. It’s a restaurant where […]
I’m going to say this flat out right in the beginning; I don’t see the big deal about restaurant buffets. Buffets are meant for huge gatherings, marriages, birthdays, and maybe they are somewhat suitable for breakfasts as well, but they are meant for where the idea is to […]

Quirk is in and Olive Bistro is in the thick of it with an assortment of colourful tables and chair – some comfortable, others not so – plates and pots hanging off chandeliers, and a small cafe like appearance…
The food though is exciting with a myriad of ingredients that are added to classics to take them up a notch – mint leaves on our Lamb Pizza is a perfect example of this. But, and this one is with a big B, the food isn’t memorable.
Giani’s is somewhat of an institution when it comes to ice-cream. Surprisingly, I had not even heard about it till about a couple of years back when one of my family friends took me to this really tiny, dingy looking outlet of Giani’s in Connaught Place. I refrained […]
In the middle of Navratras and the week and on a day when India had just lost a semi-final game in the cricket World Cup, I expected people to be home. My expectation proved to be true as I entered Zaffran with my family to find it completely […]
