Chai Koregaon Park To begin with, a lot of people hold their ‘Chai’ very, very dear. This sacred cup helps restore and maintain sanity through night and day. Having said that, the word ‘Chai’ resonates a vibe which the word ‘Tea’ can never match up to. Chai signifies a vehement sense of comfort. Something to begin with and also something that you go back to at the end of the[…]

Farzi Cafe – New Menu, Better Prices Farzi Cafe have been the forerunners of the Fusion Food Concept in the city. The torch bearers of introducing ‘Molecular Gastronomy’ in the culinary circuit of Pune. A concept, which has now succumbed to being just drab doses of liquid nitrogen and smoke engulfed drinks which ignite absolutely no fire for your appetite. The brand recently completed two successful years of its stint[…]

ARTH ARTH – a monumental establishment in the culinary circuit of Mumbai saw a star studded launch in Pune a few months ago.  While the launch propaganda and media buzz is short lived, the true propeller to success is what the brand has to ‘offer’. How often do you see a restaurant bustling with guests on a Monday evening right in its first month of operations? A meld of guests[…]

  • Those of you from MUMBAI or anyone who has had a tryst with the brownies from THEOBROMA needs to read this. .
.
@natashapostgirl , a home baker I got acquainted with very recently through a common friend is my find of the year for the best brownies in the city. The freshly baked slab has an aroma to die for and the gooeyness is incomparable. I had them fresh, i stored them overnight, had leftovers two days later - still flawless! Dark, Moist and not Cakey😍
.
Call Natasha - 9890693959 and you’ll know exactly what I mean by Theobroma level good! 🌟The slab costs ₹450 (roughly 9 odd slices) which is insane for the quality she offers. .

  • Say Kashmir and a night at the houseboat is #Mandatory to validate your trip. Choose a houseboat at Nigeen lake instead of the Dal. While the latter is a more popular option, it comes with many cons. The lake is crowded and lined with hawkers. Unless you want your stay jotted with knock knocks, Nigeen is a far better option to spend the night.🌟⛵️
.
India Palace has a group of luxurious houseboats, all at Nigeen. Excellent accommodation with a breezy fantastic view. Hospitable and courteous staff clubbed with some rustic Kashmiri grub sure makes up for a must experience activity in the valley.🏔🌈

  • The last cup of Chai in Kashmir was at the uber popular @chaijaai in Srinagar. After a week long tryst with nature, it was a pleasant surprise to come across this  british style cafe, quite a line up from Kahwa to Lattes. A shift from the traditional, the cafe is cute, quirky with some endearing cutlery and view. The CREPES and SHIRMAL are a definite try apart from their Chai Latte. I would have liked their Kahwa, had it been the first day in Kashmir. But having tasted some real stuff from maven hands for 8 days in the valley, this slightly falls short. 🏔☕️

  • There are hospitable and warm hosts and then there are Kashmiris. I have never come across a more jovial breed of humans with a better sense of humour than the locals we met on our trip. Our 8 day tour was a door to interact with quite a few locals and every single person we came across from hotel managers to tour guides, from shopkeepers to drivers - were a delight to speak with. A readily helpful attitude behind an ever smiling face. Didn’t see a single person with a frown in the valley, hard to believe such warm and peaceful vibes exuding from a place which is home to a million disputes. Only wishing peace for its wonderful people. 🌟❤️🌟🏔🌟

  • I had a long list of everything I wanted to try in Kashmir in terms of food. The gist of the list was primarily meat laden - Yakhnis and Roghanjosh and the thought of a hearty Wazwan spread had me drooling in anticipation. While all of this clearly exceeded expectations, there were few other dishes which came forth as pleasantly surprising. .
.
Local street food in Kashmir, found towards Old Srinagar area or small  roadside stalls tucked on highways. The Halwa - Paratha as they call it, is a popular breakfast item. The paratha is huge enough to serve a family and the Halwa is like no other. Laden with dry fruits and ghee, the sugar and salt combination is a firecracker. This was on our way to Anantnag district. Some bomb stuff from the kitchens in the valley🌟❤️🌟

  • A Shikara ride at the Dal. The first of many cliches that we began the trip with. The water of the Jhelum -spiking cold to the touch and a mirror to the blue skies. This and a breathtaking view of the snow clad peaks are what perfect afternoon siestas look like in Srinagar. The experience is sublime and with a view of the setting sun, this ride is straight out of the movies ❤️💖❤️

  • Tried this uber amazing CHICKEN BOLOGNESE at the newly opened @jdscafepune. The menu is a lot of quick bites at unbelievably pocket friendly prices. This quick bake bolognese is cheesy, layered with soft shredded chicken in a tangy base. No drama and all flavor food! Check them out on East Street. @cookedwithlust is the man on the back and front of the cafe, so the desserts here are going to be amaze. No questioning that at all. .

It’s been a whole month since the last post, time is flying yet the things you yearn for still seem way out of sight🙄. A long break has been on the cards for long now and while the body has taken off for THE vacation, the brain still isn’t ready. Gearing up for a week full of beautiful sights and beautiful food! Expect more activity on the stories and hopefully more posts! . .

  • Mamagoto literally translates - ‘to play with food’. No I didn’t come up with that, got this bit from their website. A pretty intriguing name with equally stunning interiors. The ambience combines FUN and ASIAN in every element. Just look at those vibrant colors, that tile art and the mosaic finish. With such good looking walls, why would you stop staring? .

More on the blog soon. Keep following @lobsterpastalady (There, I just gave myself a shoutout) ❤️🖖🏻⚡️

  • A few weeks back, I had one of the finest asian food at @mamagotofunasian in @pavillionpune ! I have been raving about their food ‘verbally’ everywhere. My friends and some kind people who ask me for recommendations can vouch for this. However, I missed posting about the same. While I work on their blog, let me just go on record to tell you how the Anti Brunch menu they offer for weekday lunches is one of the most paisa vasool deals in the city. .

@mamagotofunasian up next on the gram and the blog❤️ Feast your eyes on these succulent chicken wings till then❤️⚡️🌟
