Right from the entrance to the last stall in the venue; positive vibes flows everywhere along with aromas of delicious food, with super pretty installations.


The first stall that we stopped at was
The Taj.

Fish and Chips, along with Banoffee Pie in a combo.
The insides of the fish was really soft, and really bland.
Whereas the Banoffee Pie was pretty good, the right fruity taste of the bananas and the cream tasted just right.
To my surprise, the staff at the stall was confused about the menu as well as the process of serving the guests.

They had a piece of their delicacies for tasting, on the basis on which we ordered the Chocolate Brownie. A round shaped brownie with little chocolate chunks which tasted like choco chips. Though, …

Has Justice been served? - Talvar Movie Review

One of the most controversial cases of India, The 2008 - Aarushi Talwar Murder Case was one of those cases which left the entire nation in trauma.

This double homicide in which a 14 year old girl, Aarushi and the servant, Hemraj were found dead in a flat in Noida, raised numerous questions, doubts, and a lot many theories which remained unattended to even after the final verdict was held by the Court.

We needed a brief of all the evidences, investigations about the case to come up to a conclusion for ourselves. To settle this case in our heads, once and for all.
Director Meghna Gulzar understood this and came up with Talvar; a fictional dramatization of true life events revolving around the case.

#ZomatoMeetUp at Gastronomica, GK

I had this amazing opportunity to be a part of a #ZomatoMeetUp at Gastronomica, GK, Delhi.



The people at Zomato were feeling lucky with the number 7,
So, they arranged a Seven Course Meal for the bloggers at Gastronomica.



COURSE 1 : Soup
Wild Mushroom Cappuccino
I've never liked mushroom in my entire life,
but there was something about this that made me like it very much.
The taste of mushroom topped with milk, cream and herbs; along with long pieces of mushroom made a nice combination!

DRINK 1 : Martini
Orange and Rosemary Martini
This was the first drink of the evening; light, orangy and a pleasant one.

COURSE 2 : Salad
Pear Salad with Poached Red Wine
The twist was that it were caramelized, which made it a lot more sweater and tastier.
The right amount of everything had in one bite would neutralize the bitterness of leaves with the caramelized taste.

COURSE 3 : Appetizer
Quinoa Bhel
This one was presented in a very different manner, right on the table in a pan!


It was a spicy combina…
