Rajasthani Food Festival at The Novotel, Hyderabad

I had developed quite a bit of liking to Rajasthani cuisine due to my multiple trips to the state, when my son was doing his studies at Pilani.  So I was happy to be invited for the first day of the Rajasthani Food Festival, being organized at The Square, Novotel from 20th February.

Street food in and around Gol Park, Kolkata

Every winter I visit Kolkata for a kind of annual pilgrimage. Apart from enjoying the company of friends and relatives in the city I was born, it is also for sampling the rich range of restaurant and street food. Normally I stay in an apartment in Gol Park in South Kolkata.  The fortnight takes me to many small joints and street outlets in and around this place.

Bohemian, Kolkata: Experimental Bengali cuisine

In the last few years whenever I visited Kolkata, my friends there had asked me to try out Bohemian. I was told that the cuisine offered here has some imaginative experimentation specifically with traditional Bengali cuisine, and no other restaurant has done similar work.  Though the concept looked extremely interesting, I could finally visit this restaurant only during my trip in January.

Jellra: Taste of Korea in Hyderabad

The food scene in Hyderabad has been fairly conservative compared to other Indian metros. Apart from the hugely popular Indian and Chinese food, one can only find a handful of restaurants serving continental or Pan-Asian food. So, it was a pleasant surprise to know from fellow enthusiasts that a place at Madhapur also serves Korean food on request. So, a group of friends landed up at Jellra on an appointed Sunday to try out their fare.

The Korean guest house is in an apartment complex. The dining space is maintained extremely well and decorated with a few artefacts from Korea. A book shelf with a collection of English books for all ages adorned one wall.
