Punjab Grill – The Taste of Northern Frontiers

So, What’s new at Punjab Grill?  A very implied question considering Punjab Grill is not a new name and also we tend to fall prey to inquisitiveness a little too much. In the constant quest for launches, re-launches and revamped menus; and everyone eyeing the ‘what’s different tag’ , an average diner’s expectations are scaling…

Mojo Pizza – Reviewed

Pizza is now ‘synonymous’ with comfort food in India. With umpteen number of pizza outlets and chains storming the city, Mojo Pizza has created a space of its own in the delivery segment. Mojo in a Nutshell! The Mojo Toppings (4/5) Doubly loaded toppings – true to its claim, the toppings on Mojo pizzas are…

Did someone whine about the number ’13’ being unlucky, well if you happen to lay a hand on any of these, you were never luckier! Here’s to the TOP 13 Desserts who have my heart and make it to the Pune Dessert League.

The Taste Test: Pune vs Mumbai

Pune, forever condemned to be Mumbai’s uncool younger cousin, has got its own party going. And it is pretty lit.  Friends, Punekars, and Mumbaikars, I come to bury this debate about which is the better city, not fan it. There is nothing left to settle, no terms left to define. Sure, Mumbai, you’re India’s most…

‘Peth Pujo’ At Hyatt Regency

Contrary to the accepted notion, Calcutta is not just about Bengalis! There is more to this city than Dusky Bong beauties and the celebrated ‘Durgo Pujo’.

Go Green At Falafel Lovers!

‘Lebanese’ & ‘Vegetarian’ –  Two consequential words which sound absolutely bizarre when brought together. Lebanese cuisine in simpler geographic terms would be belonging to the Middle East. Commonly the word ‘Lebanese’ is synonymous with Shawarmas, Doner Kebabs, Sliced Meat, Grilled Meat and some more Meat. ‘Falafel Lovers’ is here to buck the trend and enunciate that…

Papa Cream: The ‘La La land’ of Desserts

Just Two weeks in and the brand is already on a roll! A prime location in the heart of the city, some unthinkable savory flavors, a few offbeat dessert offerings with competitive pricing and not to forget the the ‘Bombay Tag’!

Some Grub, More Glug at Baraza

Amidst the rising pub culture & all the bar buzz in the city, what makes Baraza disparate?

Baraza Bar & Bites is a snazzy Bar and those ‘Bites’ aren’t just Bites! No place glorifies finger food like Baraza does. This isn’t a Brewery but they do know how to ‘Mix’! A few prodigious drinks by Mixologist Pranav Mody steal the show at Baraza, once again. I’m stunned at how he digs out interesting combinations for teetotalers as well.
