Japan In A Plate At Miyuki

When you want to have some good Misal Pav, the first place that comes to your mind is Pune. Similarly, for Idli-Dosa, you know you would get the best kind in either Bangalore or Chennai, and for the best Butter Chicken, you can be assured that no one can do it better than Delhi or Punjab. But what do you do when you feel like having some good Japanese food? Living in a city like Pune, I had convinced myself that the closest I got to having authentic Japanese food was the meal I had at Kyoto in Nepal, and that I would probably have to pay a visit to the place again to get that experience. However, I was mistaken! Miyuki, located at DoubleTree by Hilton, literally brings Japan here to you.


“Being A Pillion Is Easy” – No One Ever

Leh-Ladakh is one of the prettiest places in our country. Not only us Indians, but people from over the world are fascinated by the sight of the scenic Himalayan mountains, the seamless barren lands, the high altitudes and the amazing terrain, which give you an adrenaline rush like no other. Right from the snow-filled ghats on the way to Khardungla top, to the cold sand dunes at Diskit in Nubra Valley, and the breath-taking views of the Pangong Lake, which lies partly in India and partly in China, a trip to Leh-Ladakh is one that will be etched in your memory for times unknown.


When in Bangalore, do the LOCAL stuff!

Standing true to its name, The Local – Terrace Drinkery, situated in Koramangala, is not too done up, but is a pleasant place to go drinking and catch up with a few friends on any given day of the week. The brick walls, the potted plants, the fairy lights and the vibe around the whole place could give you the illusion of sitting at one of the places in Goa, it did at least for me.
