Feeding frenzy in Saigon, Vietnam

Yes yes i know i am late by almost  month to write this food blog but life happened and my blogging got relegated to ‘i should do this some day’. I took my ‘not-so-solo’ trip to Vietnam last month and i had a blast – to say the least. My friend accompanied me for a…

Highway Gomantak: Fresh fish trail

Fresh fish can be bought from the market and made at home. And this happens every week at my place. But what if you are extra lazy on an extra long weekend? And what if your cooks are also in that ‘i don’t want to cook no-more’ mode? So the lazy blogger made her way…

Quick lunch at Borivali Biryani Centre (BBC)

Meera and i had a very quick lunch at the BBC today…. No not the British Broadcasting Centre but Borivali Biryani Centre.
