10 reasons to visit Dalhousie

There is no exaggeration when I say that Dalhousie, also known as ‘summer retreat of the country’ made me meet God in heaven. Yes, not literally but poetically so. Every reader will have similar emotions after visiting this mesmeric hill station which is named after the British Governor General ‘Lord Dalhousie’. Built on five hills, Kathalagh, Potreyn, Terah, Bhangora and Bakrota, this virgin beauty is surrounded by snow-capped peaks encircling the divine and little-known slice of paradise. Dalhousie is a pylon

Eight cities, eight chefs and one food festival

It is the diversity that makes Indian cuisines the most versatile cuisine in the world. One just needs to go a few hundred miles to see the scenery as well as the food change in taste and variety. Recently the Courtyard by Marriott held a unique first-of-its-kind food festival. It had on display eight Indian cuisines from eight states of India. This culinary week was a fantastic mouth-watering jugalbandi between spices, herbs and textures. The chefs from eight states (all from

Veda completes a decade of food journey

When restaurants are opening at every nook and corner of the city and closing with a blink of the eye, very few have been able to sustain in the F&B market while retaining their first identity. One such place is the Veda restaurant. Located on the outer circle of the ever-busy Connaught Place, it is a quiet hideout meant only to enjoy the food. Recently, the restaurant completed 10 years in the business and celebrated it with food writers and bloggers. As

Food Review: Lodi – The Garden Restaurant

If you are a Delhiite and used to visiting Lutyen’s Delhi, then you definitely know that Lodi: The Garden Restaurant is the place to enjoy the winter sun and summer evenings. It’s the proverbial paradise where you expect to see nymphs and swans, pixies and fairies, birds and birds. But even though those are missing, I simply love the ambience. Nature undisturbed, the restaurant offers great food and impeccable service. In fact, I would say it’s a lovers’ getaway. Flowers, trees,

Monkeying around at Monkey Bar

I knew of meditation in a pyramid, but Monkey Bar awakened the need to learn the art of wining and dining in a pyramid. Delhi’s latest gastropub, Monkey Bar is housed in a unique glass pyramid in Vasant Kunj. Trees all around, the spirit encased in a glass and innovative food, which of course is expected when a Chef of Olives fame, Manu Chandra, puts his heart and soul into the menu. Armed with his fine dining experience and a course

Hinglish: Where fusion reigns supreme

It’s only when you go without expectations that you end up getting the best deals. In this case, excellent, innovative food, laden with whisky, rum and vodka! Hinglish surprised me from the word go… It’s located in West Delhi’s Pacific Mall which is a high-end mall but not a hot spot for most Delhiites. It has classy and cosy interiors, live kitchen to make it a pleasurable experience. There is even seating in the open at the back to date

Blue Water Grille: A seafoodie’s delight

Did I expect a restaurant to offer seafood in Delhi’s Rajouri Garden, right near the metro station? No. So Blue Water Grille was a surprise package and a good one. I had been told seafood was the speciality. So when the manager asked us to make our choice, we decided to try the seafood dishes. Spread over 600 sq ft on the first floor, the interiors are subtle. You can quietly sit in one corner, sipping your drink, and you will

The Chatterhouse: Europe under the metro

Even the exterior of The Chatterhouse will tell you that you are going to enter a place where it’s going to be woody and cosy. And we had caught the ambience correct—it is woody, cosy, a place to spend time with friends, associates and chatter and drink to your heart’s content. THN team had decided to check it out as an informal sit-n-discuss place for our weekly meeting and we were not disappointed with the service, the friendly treatment and the

RAAS – bringing back histories together through food

In one of the busiest cities, Delhi, I found a corner where two separated countries, India and Pakistan, rendezvous. A part of the mouth-watering Pakistani delicacies lives in Hauz Khas village. Tucked away on a cobbled leafy part of the quaint village is where you will find an epicurean’s oasis – Raas. My friend and I entered this restaurant where the interiors are given a trendy yet traditional look. There is enough walking space between the seats and one can relax
