Dimsums @ Tart, Napean Sea Road - Quick Bite Review

Dimsums @ Tart, Napean Sea Road - Quick Bite Review

It seems odd doesn't it to be reading a review for Dimsums from a bakery. Its almost like brain saying does not "compute.... error.... error...." Well it is odd and I was surprised when me and the better half landed up there on the eve of her birthday after being chased away by cops for just sitting in the car (another rant for another day my friend).

The thing which made it even more weird for me was the fact that the I had wanted to visit the space ever since it opened up to sample the delicious desserts on offer but never ended up doing so. Either it was too late and it was shut or I was always running out of time as I was in a hurry to reach somewhere.

Odds things seem to happen together I guess.

Lemon Grass, Bandra - Quick Bite Review

Lemon Grass, Bandra - Quick Bite Review

Many times in life there are these restaurants you really like but due to some reason or the other don't end up going there very often. This could be due to the fact that its too far away, other family members aren't too inclined to try it out or just the fact that you didn't end up going there and forgot about it.

This is kind of what happened with me when I think about Lemon Grass in Bandra. My first introduction to the chain was when they had this quaint little space in Phoenix which later shut shop. I had a chance again to sample their wares when I went to Bandra some time later however since then I haven't visited them.

Princess, NSCI, Haji Ali - Restaurant Review

In Bombay being part of a Gymkhana like institution is a great privilege, almost something which should be listed as an attribute on a marriage classifieds ad. Beautiful Girl wanted Homely and with a Gymkhana membership. It might sound funny but I'm being serious here, especially due to the rarity of getting membership in one of these hallowed spaces along with the exorbitant fees one has to pay if your considered eligible.

I'm lucky though to know many people whose parents were smart enough to pay up when they had the chance at much more reasonable rates and have since managed to pass the membership along like some sort of family heirloom.

Bohemyan Blue Cafe, Alibaug - Restaurant Review

Time out with the boys is always relished, especially when you have been friends for as long as my group has. Well with that in mind we headed over to the weekend getaway of Alibaug for our first trip together despite knowing each other for an astounding 8+ years. Sad I know for this to have taken so long. Let me tell you though it was totally worth it.

China Bistro, Worli - Restaurant Review

China Bistro, Worli - Restaurant Review

Nestled at the turning that one takes when travelling from South Bombay to get onto the Bandra - Worli Sea Link, China Bistro occupies a space which over the years has seen a few places come and go. Not too frequently mind you but come and go they have. I think there was India and Beyond before this which was preceded by Mela. Correct me if I'm wrong please.

Coming back to the restaurant at hand. It was another lazy Sunday when my mother suddenly demanded Chinese as it had been a long time since she had indulged in some.
