Restaurant Review: Delhi Highway – The Road to Satiety Leads Here!

While we’re nearing seven decades to being an independent nation, the shrugging of the shoulder and the patronizing look is evident in almost every true blue Mumbaikar when someone mentions they’re from Delhi. And I wouldn’t be entirely mistaken if the same thing happened up north! But the one thing we never shy away from…

Restaurant Review: Go Panda – Get Stuffed!

When it comes to its food habits, India is that trendy little fashionista who buys a gazillion pairs of heels one year, only to get rid of them and buy a closet full of pumps the next year. Simply put, we pick a trend which is the party flavour for a while before the fizz runs out…

Restaurant Review: Masala Library by Jiggs Kalra – He Named Me Masala!

In a world where the Kardashian’s are breaking the internet with a glass of champagne plonked on their rear end and a Twitter pedant donning mankind’s angel is going viral on YouTube, it is becoming insanely complicated to judge a book by its ostentatious cover. Hype is disappointing almost always and walking out of a…

Restaurant Review: Zulu Terrace – Smoke & Mirrors!

Passion often entails a heavy price and with the zoman heading out on his food quests almost every day he often wondered what he was skipping out on? It was close to two months that the zoman had been dodging his damsel for a dinner date, and she had been throwing furious glances at the…

Restaurant Review: Uba Tuba – Aye Caramba!

  Fortune favours the bold and a Saturday or two ago, the zoman made perhaps one of the boldest moves of his life. As it turns out, of course for the love of food!   Perhaps the last of the wintery Saturdays, which is if you believed that Mumbai could ever provide you with a…

Restaurant Review: MasalaBar – The Proverbial Cat Got My Tongue!

    The week that went by wasn’t really the best of weeks if you’re an Indian cricket fan and watching the team go out of the World Cup despite a solid performance was absolute heartbreak. But I survived! Not because I wasn’t bothered, but because something was taking me on a sensory trip that…

Restaurant Review: Farmer & Sons – The Fresh Is In!

Good – bad, bad-good, good-bad, bad-good. Shuffling opinions faster than the speed of sound, the zoman was on the verge of a mental breakdown. Never was he so perplexed about making a narrative on his experience at an eatery but this time he was at his wit’s end.   While he tasted some delectable fare…

Restaurant Review: Dinshaw’s Xpress – Jamva Chalo Ji!

Apart from the snootiness that is summarily passed on to us the moment we step into life in a convent school, a few things are as fundamental to being a convent boy as a masala is to a great Indian recipe. And sitting somewhere on top of those things is our association with bawa branded…

Mumbai Nightlife: Havana – Viva la Peachito!

It was years since the zoman had discussed Hemingway with a friend, when off the beaten path a rousing discussion on his best work started brewing. Debating for over an hour, the zoman and his posse failed to pick between “The old man and the sea” and “For whom the bell tolls”.   Needing a…
