There are some vacations that you really should take – not just because it’s a break from the usual craziness of your life, but because they stay with you long after the tans fade and the memory of it settles in. My birthday trip to Bali with When In City was one of those.
It’s always a pleasure to dive into the amazing melting pot that Asian food is. There’s so much innovation along with introducing traditional aspects of the cuisine that we’re gradually discovering through a lot of restaurants opening up. 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.

There are so many gorgeous destinations that come to mind, and Bali is one of the most beautiful places of them all! Read on to know more about why you should definitely choose this lovely beach location for your next vacay!
Whenever I daydream about taking a vacation, my mind travels to the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, where I imagine myself enjoying a wonderful meal with a glass of the region’s finest wine, and taking in the scenery. There’s something just so refreshing and romantic about travelling through the vineyards, soaking up the sun and sampling a few of the best vintages. While Italy will hopefully happen someday, last weekend I had the most amazing time at the Grover Wines vineyards right here in Bangalore and I’m going to tell you all about it right here on the blog! Read on 🙂
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.
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. So when I was invited to the launch Made in Punjab, the latest venture from the renowned Zorawar Kalra, I was definitely interested in experiencing how Punjabi cuisine would be reimagined. Here’s what my experience tasting from the menu was like.
Sometimes you just need to take some time off and get away from it all. Amidst the sea of traffic you see in front of you on your daily commute, or the pile of emails in your inbox, or the general cacophony around you, it can be hard to tap into your inner calm. It’s always a good idea to plan a getaway when life gets too overwhelming, or even in general if you’re bored. Here’s a look at the Signature Club Resort, Devanahalli by the Brigade Group as an amazing option as your go-to getaway! Read on for the full details.
After the craziness of the week, when the last thing you need to hear is the sound of another email hitting your inbox, when you want work as far away from your mind as possible, the prospect of relaxing is amazing. When you’re done with Friday’s shenanigans and are looking forward to the rest of the weekend, the best way to celebrate is with brunch. A huge spread, catered to every possible taste, with a fun live gig in the background, and wine or champagne with your friends or partner for company – complete bliss. I recently attended the Retro brunch at High Ultra Lounge and apart from having a fabulous brunch, learned about wine pairings from the team at Grover Wines.
