I like walking into Spectra; the glass floor, the little entrance alley with the glass wine-rack walls, and then suddenly the vastness of a bright, shiny, and busy kitchen floor. Food is in the dead centre of the restaurant and the seating gets sidelined towards the edges – […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
Gone are the days when the menu of a restaurant would remain the same for decades. The latest trend, which is an ingenious marketing idea, is to keep changing the menu on either a seasonal basis or at least every year or two. What this does is it […]
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 […]
I have a heart burn that has stayed with me since last night. The last time I experienced a similar heart burn was when in school I found out that the girl I had a secret crush on for almost a year was already seeing someone. Fortunately, this […]
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 […]
