Bulldogs HKV – avoid please!!!

Although with extra thick skins, the potato was decent enough to tingle the taste buds, but garlic bread was too bland and too dry to eat. Everytime I took a bite of it, felt I was chewing a piece of dry rubber.

I have been to Hauz Khas Village (HKV) on a number of times but never in the wee hours of night. As far as my limited knowledge about Delhi’s nightlife goes HKV is the closest thing you have in Delhi. With street food, clubs, restaurants, bars, lounge, live music and young crowd, even CP (the ultimate Mecca for all things in Delhi) can’t beat it.

But after my recent visit I can put a finger; finger I can put a full hand on it; its one big experience of disappointments, one after another.

Over the years I have realized, easiest way out of a writer’s bloc is writing a review. There is not much scope of creativity or expression, just basic reporting and it’s always easier to criticize. Having said that, let me start with a recent dinning experience, at perhaps most known restaurant of Delhi, Bukhara in ITC Maurya. Continue reading “ITC Bukhara – Not so ROYAL!!!”

Thought for Food!!!

For someone like me, who had never been to South India before, travelling there was like exploring a different country. People look different, they speak different language, they dress differently, they have different culture, the food is different, billboards have different faces, climate is different and had it not been to the general piles of garbage, broken roads, chaos and the usual crowd it is impossible to make out that you are still in India.
