I thought January was a bit of an uneventful month for me, both on the blog and otherwise.
I did manage to squeeze in a short trip, but the rest of the month seems to have passed by with me stuck either under a pile of work, or a pile of blankets.
But a quick look back at January 2014, through Instragram, shows it wasn’t such a bad month after all.
- I dropped by Yauatcha in Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, for the second time in thirty days. We didn’t order these Fried Turnip Cakes ourselves, but the two ladies at the table sitting right beside us did. It looked good, we asked what they were eating, and they offered us a taste. I suppose having people sitting so close that you could graze elbows with them, like I mentioned in this post, can have its advantages.
- I kicked off my #Take12Trips with a quick weekend getaway to Mumbai, to spend some quality time with my brother. I stayed at a guesthouse in Navy Nagar, the cantonment area in South Mumbai. As it is located right at the tip of the city, the sea face was literally bang outside the guesthouse, which is where this image was captured. My brother and I woke up super early, sat on a bench by the sea face, and enjoyed the early morning serenity; listening to Clair de Lune in the moonlight. ‘Twas beautiful.
- While in Mumbai, and while my brother attended classes, I met up with a cousin for breakfast at an adorable little place called Suzette Creperie & Cafe, located in Nariman Point. The restaurant itself, while tiny, had a very relaxed and comfortable vibe. My brother highly recommended their Crepes, and we were both more than happy to comply. I ordered for a Buckwheat Crepe from their Suzette Specials section: it was named Pizza, and came stuffed with tomato coulis, chorizo, mozzarella and oregano.
- After all my many visits to Mumbai over the years, I finally made it to Indigo Deli for lunch the next day. It is slated to open in Delhi soon, and I wanted a frame of reference after all ;). This coconut-mustard steamed Red Snapper with spicy yam mash and buttered greens has finally managed to convince me that I don’t dislike fish as much as I have to claimed to, all these years. Full review, out soon.
- I have searched and searched, sampled and tasted, many of them over the years. And I can finally say, that I have found my favourite Tiramisu in New Delhi. At a lovely restaurant called Ivy & Bean in Shahpur Jat. Full review, here.
So there you go, the month of January, flashed back through Instagram.
