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 […]
Everything in the end comes to the freshness of the ingredients. From the light recently made “hand-stretched” dough to the side salad in the children’s menu, to all the remaining ingredients, Jamie’s pizzas are now certainly amongst my favorites in the country. The simplicity of it all is wonderful and very true to what Jamie Oliver stands for as a culinary legend.
The problem with any good idea is that there are always people ready to jump onto it without a second thought. Food Trucks are catching up and we’ve been lucky so far as to have a good to excellent collection of those. How long before a “bad” one […]
There are very few places that I look forward to re-visiting. With so many choices and new restaurants opening regularly, it’s becoming difficult to convince family members and friends to visit a place they’ve eaten at before. Everyone wants to try a new place and be seen at […]
I’ll admit I’m not one to order food for home-delivery on a normal basis. It’s only ever reserved for Pizza or when unexpectedly guests arrive. Out of pure experimentation, a little bit of research for a post I am doing, and because I had a few online food […]
It’s festival season here in India and with all the Diwali and Dusshera Melas happening around the country, why should Food take a back seat. As a result, we have not one, not two, but four big Food Festivals happening in the Delhi-NCR region and this is not […]
If you’re familiar with the Babylon series by Imogen Edwards-Jones, then you’d have a fair idea of how the book will turn out to be even before you begin to read it. Similar to her previous books, Restaurant Babylon has Edwards-Jones working with a number of industry insiders, combined together as […]
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 […]
Every since I started posting pictures of food I was cooking and “playing” with, I would occasionally get a request for the recipe. Sadly, I’m not a recipe person and because I don’t follow recipes myself, I find it very hard to write them up even if I […]
I wrote this piece below (in italics) a few years back. At the time I was writing about films and travel and I never thought I would ever talk about food. I didn’t think I could. I started food blogging roughly eight months back. I had written a […]
A 100 Dessert Buffet. Say it again, a 100 Dessert Buffet. You need to say it a few times before the enormity of it all sinks in. That’s one hundred, not fifty, not seventy five, not even ninety nine, but a hundred desserts laid out to eat.
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.
Let me take you back a few decades, to a time when Angeethi was a tiny restaurant in South Delhi’s ASIAD complex that consisted of a few tables under a thatched roof. When it rained, we would have to take our plates and run into the next door […]
It won’t be long before Gurgaon gets named the food-truck capital of India. Just the other day, while driving back through a certain section of Gurgaon – Sector 29 – that has become a foodie haven thanks to numerous restaurants, I counted a total of 6 food-trucks parked […]
No, this isn’t one of those articles that lists food-trucks operating across India, rather it’s a look at this trend and how pretty much just one Hollywood movie, Chef, and a TV show, Eat Street, have brought about the latest revolution in the Indian food industry – before […]
