Traditional Italian Cuisine at The Verandah, Grand Hyatt Goa

If you eliminate the pizza parlours and the old-school (but still so delicious) triad of Pesto, Alfredo and Arabbiata sauces from Italian menus across the country, you’ll be left with a mere handful of establishments serving the perfect plate of pasta. Think about it! I can only speak for myself…

Eating my way through Club 29, Wakad – Pune

Hey everyone! I constantly shuttle between Goa and Mumbai and of course, Pune invariably falls along the route on Mumbai-Goa road trips. Apart from the McDonalds on the highway, I’ve actually never ever explored the city of Pune, and I have been meaning to change that. It is a great…

Who doesn’t love a restaurant that lets you dine under the sky? A hint of sunshine, gentle breeze, a sound of a fountain – it really brings on those vacay vibes. So does Pondicherry, for that matter, and its here that I found a lot of courtyard restaurants sprinkled around…

The Grapevine, Mahabaleshwar – Don’t Miss it!

Poush – A Taste of Kashmiri Paradise in Mumbai

Ever since I got invited to review Poush, a restaurant serving Kashmiri food and Just Kerala, a south Indian one, I’ve had the song ‘Kashmir Tu Mein Kanyakumari’ stuck in my head. And apart from that one line, I don’t know the words to that song at all. Anyway! There’s…

Just Kerala, Andheri – Restaurant Review

What’s not to love about the southern state of Kerala? Perhaps India’s prettiest state, it’s tranquil backwaters, endless coconut groves, green-face-painted Kathakali dancers and seafood define the region. In Chakala (Andheri), a restaurant with an unassuming appearance attempts to bring the flavours of Kerala into Amchi Mumbai. ‘Just Kerala’ is…
