A Walk in the Ruins of the Golconda Fort

A Walk in the Ruins of the Golconda Fort

I visited the Indian city of Hyderabad a couple of months ago. It was my first trip to a city I had heard so much about. A city steeped in history, drenched in heritage and oozing culture at every turn. It was a friend’s wedding that finally took me to Hyderabad, but despite the limited time and packed schedule, I was determined to explore as much of it as I possibly could.

The Pizza Place Series – Episode 4

The Pizza Place Series – Episode 4

It’s been nearly a whole year since the last episode of the Pizza Place Series came out, but I can assure you I still take my duties as Delhi’s self-appointed Pizza sampler very seriously!

It was beginning to seem like every restaurant serving Pizza in our city was comfortable casting it into a supporting role. It isn’t Good Pizza that we lack in Delhi, because reliable options like Olive Bar and Kitchen in Mehrauli, La Piazza at The Hyatt, or even Three Sixty One at The Oberoi Gurgaon are dishing out some very delectable slices.

What was missing though, was something that could really and truly be called – A Pizza Place!

When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it!

2014 is coming to a close, and while I most certainly cannot believe another year has flown by so rapidly, when I pause to reflect on these twelve months, I’m filled with nothing but pride.

The History and Heritage of Hyderabad

The History and Heritage of Hyderabad

I’m on a quest to Take12Trips this year, and the challenge is in its final leg!!! :)

For Trip # 11 (Yay Me!), I flew to the city of Hyderabad in the last week of November, for another short weekend getaway. I was attending a friend’s wedding, so while most of my time in Hyderabad was spent at the festivities, there was no way I would be leaving without exploring at least some of the city’s many, many highlights.

5 Destinations I Would Love To Return To

5 Destinations I Would Love To Return To

193 UN-recognised countries in the world, not enough time to visit them all!
That’s the school of thought I usually subscribe to. Every time it comes to selecting a destination to visit, I usually tend towards someplace I haven’t been before.
New cities to visit, new sights and sounds to experience, new cultures to immerse myself in, new food to stuff my face with!

First Look – SodaBottleOpenerWala, Khan Market

First Look – SodaBottleOpenerWala, Khan Market

I first visited SodaBottleOpenerWala way back in February of this year when the new Cyber Hub eatery in Gurgaon was pretty much the talk of the town. My impression of the restaurant at that time was a mix of good and bad, which I wrote about here. While the décor and ambience certainly appealed to me, the food during that meal left much to be desired. I left that day, feeling that I wouldn’t be too keen to return, and I didn’t.

But then they went and opened another outlet in one of my favourite locations – Khan Market, and an invitation for the opening found its way into my Inbox.
