Hell’s Kitchen in Las Vegas: a quick taste

Hell’s Kitchen in Las Vegas: a quick taste

Replete with pitchforks, shooting digital flames and cocktails fuming with dry ice, there is nothing subtle about Hell’s Kitchen. There’s even a video of a life-sized, suitably annoyed Chef Gordon Ramsay at the entrance, barely welcoming guests. And of course, a flurry of merchandise. But then, this is Las Vegas: ...

What makes the Riesling so special?

What makes the Riesling so special?

Okay, I admit it: for me, ‘Riesling’ equated to syrupy sweet wine. However, with wine-connoisseurs speaking eloquently about its aromatic delights, I had long wanted to reconsider my palate. The opportunity came during a visit to Rheingau, a designated wine region in Germany, where almost 80% of the grape grown ...

Bunny chow, a staple food at Durban

Bunny chow, a staple food at Durban

I couldn’t believe we were travelling 30 kilometres to eat bunny chow. Can’t we just stop at one of those ubiquitous Nandos instead? But a friend insisted we savour the Durban delicacy, and promised it would be worth it. So we reached De’Ma restaurant at the Gateway Shopping Centre in ...

Sunday specials at Sayahna Garden Restaurant

Breakfast at an ‘evening restaurant’ might sound like an irony. But that’s exactly the delicious difference Sayahna Garden Restaurant brings with its stand-alone Sunday Breakfast, which boasts of a compact but inviting, chiefly ethnic Kerala fare.

Kasimedu’s version of a pizza is ‘atlappam’

“It’s like pizza, but a sweet version,” says K Menaka, covering her eyes with her sari’s pallu as smoke puffs up from her makeshift oven. It’s 7 am and the Sunday morning madness at Kasimedu fish market is at its peak. Menaka sells atlappam by the road that leads to ...

How to pick a dietician

How to pick a dietician

I have a friend who has left no dietary stone unturned. In the past decade, she has been to the most well-known (and expensive) conventional dieticians, to the freakiest new-age ones abroad who recommend bizarre things like a nicotine diet to kill hunger. She hasn’t given up yet, and her ...

Truly Thai – The Hindu

Truly Thai - The Hindu

When you have a stream of friends coming over, all ostensibly to see how you are faring but somehow landing up at dinner time, you have to feed them well. Since the food at home these days is mostly low in fat and taste, I thought we should order in ...

Italian and Indian cuisines have many similarities

Italian and Indian cuisines have many similarities

There was a time when Sunday afternoons, for me, meant a long drive — with five people squeezed into a Maruti 800 — to the outskirts of Delhi for a hearty Italian meal. The capital those days was still insular when it came to food. So when a small eatery ...

Holland days: European breakfasts, Chinese dinners and big Turkish meals

Holland days: European breakfasts, Chinese dinners and big Turkish meals

Pea soup, pancakes, potato fries. This is what my Google search told me were traditional foods in the Netherlands. In addition I knew that cheese, particularly Gouda and Edam, were made there. Yes. That’s what I found in eight days there. We had six days in Amsterdam and two in ...
