It’s quite fitting, I would think, that the first restaurant I visited in the New Year was one that had been the talk of the town for most of the previous year! Serving traditional Armenian cuisine right in the heart of the city, Lavaash By Saby has been garnering rave reviews ever since it opened a few months ago. To say that I was brimming over with curiosity to find out what the fuss was all about would be a gross understatement!
October – one of my favourite months in the year, and always the busiest!!!
This year, also the reason why things have been so utterly silent and forlorn here at Life On My Plate!
Clearly, I am seriously behind in my blogging updates!
The highlight for me in the month of September was our family holiday to Russia. I’ve already taken you through some of the best things about the trip in my Russia through Instagram post, but there was a bit more to the month as well!
So here’s a quick look at the month of September, flashed back through Instagram.
August became the second month in 2015 without any travel materializing. The only consolation I had was the wee bit of travel planning I’ve been doing for my upcoming trip. My itchy feet have been acting up like no body’s business, and I can’t wait till Friday! But more on that in just a little bit!
Here’s a quick look at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.
It’s been 26 days since my last post; the longest I have ever gone, in my over two years of blogging, without something new coming out on LifeOnMyPlate!
Definitely not something I am proud of!
But with some disturbances and disruptions in life this past month, and some new travel planning that is turning out to be way more complicated than I had anticipated, penning down a post was the last thing on my mind. But more on that later…!
So while I head off to try and get my Blogging mojo back, here’s a quick look at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.
When I want Italian Food, I want it all: the creamy sauces, the cheesy fillings, the rich toppings. And I want it in all its calorie-infested, artery-clogging glory. That is exactly what I got a few weeks ago when I stopped by La Tagliatella at the Ambience Mall in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
The latest installment in Citibank Restaurant Week wrapped up just last week. The first ever Restaurant Week in India (RWI) was held in Mumbai way back in 2010. Ever since then, Citibank RWI has been running twice a year across Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore simultaneously. Spread over 10 days, a number of the cities’ finest restaurants participate by offering three-course prix fixe menus to diners at a fraction of a la carte menu prices.
Le Bistro Du Parc is the latest in a growing list of “French” Restaurants in New Delhi. This one opened a couple of months ago in Defence Colony, and has been garnering a lot of positive feedback. It is a tiny little place tucked into a corner of the market near Moolchand, where the now vanished-into-oblivion Italian Restaurant Flavours is. Located right next to the park, the location is a welcome change from Hauz Khas Village and Meherchand Market, or the numerous Malls, which have been hogging culinary limelight off late.
28 states – each with a distinct history, language, culture, and ethnicity. But most importantly, each with a different cuisine, a different taste, a different style of cooking. For someone who loves variety, I could not have been born in a better country.
