You know those subtle yet spicy flavours, those delectable dimsums, and delicious gravies and sauces? Well, this time I got to explore the Southern side of Chinese cuisine at Zen, the Leela Palace.

No one does fine dining quite as well as the Italians. There’s so much more to Italian cuisine than just pizzas and pasta, and someone who truly loves Italian cuisine would know there’s a lot to discover. I recently had the chance to experience a curated menu of Italian specialties from the Northern region of Italy, paired with some exquisite wines at Marriott, Whitefield.
Sodabottleopenerwala is one of the best Parsi restaurants I’ve been to, with its old-world, retro vibe, its hilarious take on Parsi culture and most of all its delectable food. I was recently invited to the Parsi Lagan Nu Bhonu, a month long celebration commemorating 3 years of the restaurant, with the traditional Parsi wedding feast.
Nachos are my first love when it comes to easy to eat fast food. Those little triangles of crunchy goodness topped with jalapenos, olives, salsa and globs of melted cheese…mmm. They’re my go-to food to order whenever I’m out with friends or when I’m in the mood for eating junk. So when Hard Rock Cafe announced their Nachos Gone Wild festival, of course I did a small jig in my head as I accepted the invite! Read on to know about all the different types of nachos and margaritas we tried.
Au Bon Pain has been a place that holds a lot of comfort for me. When I used to live in Koramangala, my brother and I would often go there for a quick coffee or some delicious bagels on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Their soups are also warm and comforting and worth a try. Recently, I was invited to experience their new ‘Winter Hotties’ menu. Read on to know what’s worth a try and what to miss from the menu!
Ever since I was little, I’ve preferred North Indian food due to my upbringing in the national capital region. There’s something so delicious about even a simple, well-prepared daal or those scrumptious chaats that make snacktime fun.

Here’s what my experience tasting from the menu was like.

Read on to know more about the delectable fare one can expect from this fixed menu.
When you crave a giant cheesy burger with a mountain-load of fries on the side, or a chocolate brownie or whatever you love, there’s often no stopping you once you’re convinced. You might feel like wolfing one down but sometimes, it’s good to stop and think about all that cholesterol that this might cause in the long run. It’s not about you getting old but just about eating smart. Recently, I had the chance to discover how to indulge in easy and healthy snacking with Real Good Yummiez and Chef Michael Swamy at the lovely Cafe Mangii in a High Tea event at Orion Mall. Read on to know the 3 ways he taught us to create healthy snacks.
A few weekends ago, I had the chance to experience how wine and food pairings work, at the Mighty Brunch with Grover Wines at Shangri-La, Bangalore. If you remember I’d covered the Great Grover Wine Festival earlier, and this was another initiative by them to celebrate the Valentine weekend!
