Peninsular Kitchen – Restaurant Review

Peninsular Kitchen – Restaurant Review

The Peninsular Kitchen is a coastal cuisine restaurant in Vasant Kunj. Relatively new and untried, it looked tempting enough to experiment on a weekend. Now that Zambar has closed, it seems to have an edge by virtue of being the only place offering South Indian non-veg cuisine in the trio of malls in Vasant Kunj.(…)

Rose Cafe – Restaurant Review

Roses are red, Violets are blue; Romance is in the air and it’s time for Rose Cafe review. A cafe by this name warranted a visit, especially when it’s a Valentine month.

Lavaash by Saby – Restaurant Review

Who would have thought of getting the taste of Armenia in South Delhi? I was excited to try out a new world cuisine in town, and that too, reminiscent of someone’s childhood. I decided to take my almost 24-year-old for a pre-birthday dinner to offer an all-round perspective The Location Little away from the hustle(…)

Mozaic, Santa Cruz — Restaurant Review

Mozaic, Santa Cruz — Restaurant Review

Mozaic is the latest incarnation in a location that’s seem at least three different restaurants in the past ten or so years. First, it was Clouds, a nice, upscale, downtown-business-networking kind of place. Clouds gave way to a New Orleans-themed place, which I reviewed – Louie’s Cajun. That place departed last year, to be replaced(…)

La Bodega — Restaurant Review

La Bodega — Restaurant Review

Finally, I found a place that professes to serve authentic Mexican fare in the heart of Delhi – La Bodega. Coming from a Spanish word meaning ‘grocery store’, La Bodega also means a cellar. However, this casual restaurant tries to reflect the rustic spirit of a streetside cafe in Mexico. The Location Conveniently located in(…)

Elma’s Brasserie — Restaurant Review

Elma’s Brasserie — Restaurant Review

At the outset, I must clarify that Brasserie is a French word alluding to a French restaurant that has a relaxed ambience and serves alcoholic beverages and food. Elma’s has two outlets in Delhi: their cafe in Hauz Khas Village and their restaurant at Lodhi Colony. Very few places in Delhi serve high tea, and(…)

Carnatic Cafe — Restaurant Review

Carnatic Cafe — Restaurant Review

There are days when one yearns for a home-style South Indian meal in a not-so-ostentatious place. More importantly, you can be in slippers and tracks. The newly opened Carnatic Cafe in GK2 market seemed to be just the right place to go for a lazy night meal, and so here I was, with my young(…)

Martine Café Salt Lake City Restaurant Review

Martine Café Salt Lake City Restaurant Review

Martine Café is a place with an enormous amount of promise that, unfortunately, does not quite deliver. Most of the meal was pretty good. However, the entrée was unbelievably not, and it was also, for this market and this restaurant, really expensive. Plus, the service was slow on a night when this place was not(…)

Original Pantry, Los Angeles Restaurant Review

Original Pantry, Los Angeles Restaurant Review

The diner is a uniquely American invention. It was originally a side effect of the construction of the interstate highway system, in the 1950s. The idea was to create a kind of restaurant where people could quickly, efficiently get decent food into them – calories, really – and then get back on the road. This(…)
