The New Delhi Wish-List

Delhi has been home to me for roughly 22 out of my 25 years. I always seem to be on a quest in this city: a quest for the novel, a quest to try the untried, sample the new, visit the un-visited. In a place like Delhi, where a new “spot” seems to mushroom up literally on a weekly basis, avenues to satiate that wish are plenty. Yet, there still remain that smattering of elusive restaurants, the small yet distinctive list of places I have always wanted to go to, yet, somehow, never had the chance / gotten down to it.

Of Flashbacks and Forwards… JUNE, 2013

As my first month of blogging comes to a close, I thought I’d include a new monthly segment; a little corner for me to summarize the happenings of the month gone by; and perhaps throw some light on things I could look forward to as I step into a new month; quite straightforward in its title: Of Flashbacks and Forwards…!

Thirty-Nine: Bringing an old-world charm to Hauz Khas Village

There are two categories of people in Delhi today: those who love Hauz Khas Village and those who don’t.
The latter can be heard lamenting on the over-commercialization of an originally quaint, quite neighborhood. They ruminate that what was once the offbeat destination for Dilli’s culturati, has slowly descended into mainstream mayhem.

Perfection in Imperfecto

A few Mondays ago, in a bit of a celebratory state of mind having been married for 6 months, my husband and I made our way to Haus Khas Village to try out new kid on the block: Imperfecto. Sitting pretty atop the first building at the entrance to HKV, it catches the eye even from the perpetually-filled-to-capacity parking lot.  Continue reading

It’s a beautiful day to begin Blogging!

Have you ever… turned to a friend or colleague, or even simply an acquaintance, for suggestions on where to eat out?
