Dubai & Abu Dhabi # 1: The Preparations

Dubai or Singapore was the question during the mid of July. A little bit of discussion, some help from Google and Dubai emerged as the choice for our next family vacation, primarily for the following reasons… Singapore would be enjoyed more by a 7/8-year-old child than a 3.5-year-old that is what my son is right …

Pub-Grub and Potions @ Drinkery 51, BKC, Mumbai

I was there as a part of 'Art of Blending' event to understand nuances of whiskey making. Got to try few of their starters over a couple of drinks. The interiors resemble a classy club like wooden finish. We were served Johnney & Ginger which is Red Label and Ginger Ale which was a great …

Looking for a super quick meal, our search ended up at Busago. We tried Tibetan Veg. Momos which turned out to be good and tasted great with 3 of their signature sauces.

Jalwa of food @ JLWA, Bandra (W), Mumbai

With 3rd restaurant/bar in less than a year, Priyank Sukhija is sure on a mission to change the landscape of Mumbai's restaurants/bars.

The Bhookha Beirdo, Bandra (W), Mumbai

Tucked in a bylane of Pali Hill, TBB is easy to find. The facade is not as appealing as the name is but that’s an ignorable shortcoming. The restaurant is tiny yet cozy. The interior is minimalistic and the walls are adorned by travel theme knick-knacks. The owner, Anurag, welcomed me and narrated the story …

The Masala Story @ Chaubara 601, Thane

Conceptualizing is often an easy part. Making it happen is what takes up maximum efforts.

Chaubara means a room with 4 doors on each wall. 601 signifies the PIN code …
