Good Food All Day Every Day – Cafe Felix, Bangalore

When the Café Felix invite dropped in my inbox, I was ultra-excited! The menu looked super interesting, as did the space. I roped in a friend, spoke to Apeksha (the one co-ordinating the tasting sessions) and a weekday lunch at this brand-new cafe was decided upon. ‘

As we entered the café, we were greeted with plenty of natural light and a modern casual chic vibe that instantly set the tone for our lunch. Before we settled in, Apeksha showed us around the gorgeous restaurant and introduced us to Chef Nitin Kulkarni who was previously with team Indigo from Mumbai for over 17 years. He’s been working with The Clearing House in Mumbai for the last few years and has made his way into Bangalore with the all-day open, Café Felix.

Top Chef Culinary Workshop by Chef Saransh Goila

A Top Chef culinary workshop sounded amusing, but I could not help but wonder how one could pull that off at Godrej Nature’s Basket! The event was set in a cosy corner of its Koregaon Park outlet and started on time. I expected Chef Saransh Goila to be slightly haughty from the little background check I did (courtesy of Google). A successful food travelogue plus finding space in the Limca book of world records is no small feat. But to my surprise, that wasn’t the case! From a shared adoration towards Padma Lakshmi to chucklesome references of posting food photos onto Instagram, Chef Goila seemed like quite a rooted man.

Start Your Day With This Appetizing Breakfast At Dinshaw’s!

For me, a perfect Sunday starts with an appetizing breakfast! And that’s exactly what I experienced a few days ago when I found myself seated at a petite and cozy cafe, placed just around the corner of lane 6 at Koregaon Park on a sunny Sunday morning. I entered Dinshaw’s Xpress Café to the sound of pleasant chatter and a waft of tummy-rumbling aroma! It was no wonder then that I ended up having a taste of almost everything on their breakfast menu!

Italian Guy’s Dream Pizza In India – Piccola Roma

Let me start this post with a question. What happened when you were in Goa? I’m sure that this question triggered a string of random, unique yet marvelous experiences in your head, which you will cherish for a lifetime. So when I went to Goa for the first time recently, how could it be a trip that I would not remember?

Let me tell you the story of an Italian-German traveler who I met in Goa. At 45, Mario has traveled to 20 countries including France, Germany, Russia, Turkey, the United States, etc. I happened to meet him at the pool deck of my hotel and as filmy as it may sound, our conversation started when he noticed me fussing over the taste of my margarita. Haha! We both got talking, and next thing we knew, we started bonding over our love for food. On learning that I was a food blogger on the hunt for new flavours and food, he recommended that I try this pizza place nearby. He really swore by it and totally managed to convince me to try it when he told me that he found the pizza there more delicious than the pizza back home in Italy! Yes! A claim like that would get anyone intrigued, wouldn’t it?
