#RoyalIndianExperience @ Shakahari, JW Marriott, Pune

Ever wondered how a royal dining would have been and what royals used to eat? I always did and it took me a trip to JW Marriott, Pune to understand that royal dining is less about royal food and more about a royal experience. As far as food it concerned, it is the authenticity that …

A Vegetarian Heaven – Cream Centre, R-City, Mumbai

The Big Nachos

When it comes to vegetarian food, especially for pure vegetarians like me, this place is a no-brainer. You get all the choices, ranging from Indian, Italian, Mexican, under one roof.

Dadimaa No Varso, R-City, Ghatkopar (W), Mumbai

It's difficult if not impossible to have Gujarati food and still be light on stomach primarily because of the ingredients and uncountable varieties served in a Gujarati Thali. There was always a gap when you want to eat some specific Gujarati dish and not want to go on full Thali. Dadi Ma No Varso fills this gap …
