The White Owl, One India Bulls, Elphinstone Road - Restaurant Review

The White Owl Brewery and Bistro is a space I've had a funky history with. Never being able to go for dinner here but having experienced crazy and memorable nights here nonetheless due to their crazy Saturday nights which come along oh so often. This time however visiting the space was to celebrate the occasion of the Birthday of the better half. Not the first choice mind you but definitely one I was glad to have made

Only Parathas, Linking Road, Bandra - Restaurant Review

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.
