Clocktower, Gurgaon - Another Favorite!

The Clock Tower is one of the many microbreweries based out of Golf Course Road.
What separates it from the rest of the lot is its history that goes long back to a school in Nainital which goes by the name of Sherwood which was set up in 1869.

Tribhuvan Yadav took all his inspiration from his time in Sherwood College and put his heart out in The Clock Tower.
He came up with this name to symbolize all the clock towers that Nainital has!


Every corner of The Clock Tower would remind you of the good old days!
Starting from the basic structures like high ceilings, and big doors which give the exact European feels that they intend to convey, looks no less than a high end palace property.

Each wall has a good old memory waiting for you to reminisce;
Be it comics like Archies, Adventures of Tin Tin, Malgudi Days, or souvenirs from different neighboring schools like Doon School.



This place became my instant favorite when I have had a whole tour of the property,
all I hoped was that the food …

Filmy Flavours, Sector 63, Noida

We come many different kinds of restaurants, lounges, eateries ever now and then. But not all of them leave a lasting impression on our minds. We usually end up remembering the ones which have either the best food, or the best theme; In rare cases, both!
Talking about the theme based restaurants, Bollywood theme has been one of the most famous ones. Bollywood Biistro, Mumbai Matinee, Box Office Cafe are some of the famous names. One such understated place is Filmy Flavours in Sector 63, Noida! There is something about this place which makes it a better bollywood themed restaurant.


The minute you enter the place, you see stories related to various movies and characters, from the early 80s to the year 2015. Cutouts from famous movies and iconic roles like, three bums from 3 Idiots, Krishh, DDLJ; sitting is divided into booths the walls of which are also covered with Facts about actors/actresses, installations and props, and even the names of dishes are bollywoody!

Once I was done admiring th…

North Indian Starboy: Pind Balluchi

Each time I crave for some North Indian delicacies, I look out for traditional places which prioritize authenticity over western influence! One such place which never fails to amaze me is Pind Balluchi.

There has been no looking back for them since they first started. It is the shining star, endowed with many enviable awards and visited by whom not in the country!
The desi interiors at all the Pind Balluchi outlets across the country have an earthy charm to it. Some of them have been so constructed to give a village courtyard look with a huge truck, banyan trees, and such other things. To compliment the ambience, appropriate cutlery has also been used. One such outlet which gives such a traditional feel is in Vaishali. Newly opened in a mall in Vaishali, I looked forward to a wonderful time!


The minute I spotted the outlet from across the food court, every thought mentioned above was justified. The entrance had this huge door like the ones in Palaces, with rustic feels to it. They ha…

Sizzler Festival: Barcelos

Barcelos, The House of Peri has been known for its famous Peri Peri preparations; along with the colored burger buns! Red Burgers, Black Burgers; They have always given us something new to try!

It will soon be known for another thing, which is a Sizzler Festival.
I happened to be at Barcelos, Hauz Khas Village a couple of days back to try their Sizzlers!

The interiors of the place have been done so nicely. Situated at the second floor, right at the start of Hauz Khas Village,

It has a great open area, a pretty nice bar, along with high and low sitting.

Love how the Rooster is designed in the shaped of a big and fluffy 'B' representing Barcelos!
Getting back to the Sizzlers!
They have come up with a new range of sizzlers for this sizzler festival. Divided in two categories, Vegetarian (7 items) and non-vegetarian (6 items) Mutton Keema Sizzler Finely chopped keema done amazingly, with Sweet Corn, Broccoli, Mushroom, Onion and served on a bed on cabbages. I love Keema rolls a lot…

Imly, Rajendra Place - Review

After numerous praise and amazing reviews, I finally got the chance to visit this place. Though they have spread their wings to different parts of Delhi NCR, The Rajendra Place one remains the prime unit which had to be visited.

One of the main attractions here is the 250 meter long railway themed restaurant. Seating shaped like coaches, with luggage space given overhead containing cute trunks. {No, you don’t need to keep your bags up there}

This train themed restaurant serves the best of the street food. Its menu is classified based upon the place of Origin! My favorite was,
Dahi Puchkas: I was sold when I saw how it was presented. It came about in a little Ferris wheel.
On my first bite, It was literally an explosion of chatpata chat in my mouth; an overflowing one, actually.
