Kolkata | Flury’s

Finally made it to this place which has been running since 1927, for their classic English breakfast. The platter is gigantic and a fulfilling brunch that will buck you up for many hours. We tried the usual English breakfast accompanied with beverages. The price was 950 including beverages, and 750 excluding beverages. It might appear to be a little overpriced given the fact that it … Continue reading Kolkata | Flury’s

Kolkata | Mocambo

Mocambo dates back to 1956, but with old-fashioned seats in scalloped red leather, it feels more like a mood-lit 1970s steakhouse. There are certain places that define Kolkata. Mocambo is one of the many. You take your friends from other parts of the country when they visit Kolkata, to Victoria Memorial and then to Mocambo. A very loyal following comes here for their devilled crab, … Continue reading Kolkata | Mocambo

Kolkata | Waterside Café, Hyatt

Delhi | Rajinder da Dhaba

This eatery has evolved from being a tiny roadside stall to a set of three blooming diners: Rajinder Da Dhaba, Rajinder Xpress and RDX restaurant.

My all-time favourite dish from there is their Galauti Kebab. So bloody soft and juicy! … Continue reading Delhi | Rajinder da Dhaba

Delhi Moments | Gender Stereotyped

Coddled, fragile, sensitive. Virile, strong, cerebral. The homemaker and the breadwinner.  Family versus career. The list of stereotypes that was born out the masculine/feminine construct could go on forever. And it’s so extensive that it seems to have been here since the dawn of time. Pink for girls, blue for boys! This is just one of those stereotypes! From birthday parties, to maternity wards to … Continue reading Delhi Moments | Gender Stereotyped

Delhi Moments | Egoless Rejections

The other day my friend and I were sitting in the Londoners Bistro & Pub in GK 1, when two guys came up to us and started a conversation. They definitely wanted to buy us a drink, or may be take us out for a coffee. They complimented us. We smiled. We refused politely. They smiled. They left. Although we politely refused their offer, I … Continue reading Delhi Moments | Egoless Rejections
