Call me Chef Saylee with Burgundy Box

Laziness is my middle name. Hell, it could also replace my first name. But Procrastination Padwal suits me really well, so I’ll let it stick. This laziness of mine comes into play during a lot of instances. Most of all when I’m home alone on a weekend, lustfully eyeing that meal which Bon Appetit has…

Celebrating the magic of Chipotle at THC, Oshiwara

You know what we suddenly have a LOT in Mumbai? Mexican restaurants. Every corner has one to the point that one might replace the humble Mumbai wada pav with a Taco. But what the city lacks is a good Mexican restaurant. One that doesn’t add Guacamole and Sour Cream to every dish to make it…

Saying Hello to Homely Food with Hola Chef

Nothing brings us joy like the meal we have after a long day at work. One which tastes just like maa-ke-haath-ka-khana at a home away from home. Or one where you don’t spend hours making preps and end up with a half-baked attempt. Hola Chef has been an answer to all of these dilemmas for…

Sunday brunching at Long & Short – InterContinental

Picture this – A Sunday brunch. Let’s make it better? With live acoustic music. Doesn’t quite cut it? How about one at Marine Drive? Need something more? The first #MumbaiRains (yeah I use hashtags on Zomato) Sounds dreamy enough? That’s Long and Short at Intercontinental for you. Located at the picturesque Marine Drive, it’s nothing…

Making Timeless Memories with Daniel Wellington #DWinMumbai

Now, I know you’ll agree to this.   Open Instagram, scroll through your home-feed and you are sure to spot a picture with a Daniel Wellington in it. Be it a #HandsInFrame feature or an attempt at a ‘I really didn’t spend an hour arranging this’ #Flatlay, a DW watch makes you stop, stare and double…

Sippin’ a soulful brew with Vero Coffee

Remember the first time you visited that fancy new coffee shop down the street? When after being hella confused over the fancier names they had for small, medium and large, you somehow managed to get a grip of an order? When the barista ended up butchering the (what you thought was) unique name your parents…

Konichiwa Japan at Kanpai Lounge Bar, Bandra

There are plenty of Japanese restaurants in the city these days with no shortage of options on where to go. Kofuku with its great detail to authenticity sits somewhere on the top of that list. Having recently asked a Japanese friend about their favourite restaurant in Mumbai, pat came the reply and it turned out…

Getting drunk on popsicles at The White Owl

So you probably know of The White Owl because you’re into Craft Beer. Or maybe you know about it because of its popular Sunday Brunches. You probably know about it cause you’ve seen its name pop up with the very famous Diablo and Halcyon at other bars. Or well, maybe you know about it since…

Going the Oriental Way at Asian Street Kitchen

Women’s Day 2016 brought along with it a special invite to Asian Street Kitchen. Having always wanted to try the place out whenever I passed along this very restaurant-heavy stretch of Chowpatty, I jumped at the opportunity. Not one to get deterred by a vegetarian place serving Asian food, I knew I was in for…
