Lobster Night at Shangri-La

We have often seen posts of our foodie friends about the Shangri-La lobster night. Usually it’s always on the first Wednesday of every month.

Matsuri – A Celebration of Japanese Food

Talking about Japanese cuisine – it used to be always “Sushi” in my mind – until I visited Matsuri recently. Matsuri is part of the Chancery Hotel, in the heart of the city.

Flechazo – Come fall in love once more !

We are such regulars at Flechazo that its feels like extended home. It has become synonymous to celebration, be it office team dinner, birthdays, anniversaries, festive occasions or friends catching up.

Burma Burma – The new food ambassador in Indiranagar

Since childhood I had heard stories of Burma from my grandfather’s friends who used to visit our house.
