Blogger’s cook off at Baan Thai, Oberoi Grand

It was a working afternoon and suddenly my inbox signaled me of a new mail. At my age, once, a mail comes, heart loses a beat but this was good news. Oberoi Grand, rather Baan Thai outlet, is organizing a blogger’s cook off or rather masterclass and I was, for some strange reason, invited.  Now,…

2 cafes – one vision, different path and Mohamushkil

Recently, I’ve been to 2 cafe, which I found quite different from the usual run of the mill numerous ones. Both cafes have got one aim, one motto, one vision and that’s the good part, but surprisingly, the path taken is quite different. This is their story. The first one is Cafe I can Fly….

Wasabi from Mumbai – Souk Taj Bengal Kolkata

Japanese food is somehow one of the most underrated cuisine globally. But, frankly, there is no apparent reason for it. Its a visual pleasure and finer tastes blend like they’re born for it only. But, still, maybe due to the lesser availability outside Japan or the ingredients, it’s pretty tough to get. However, Wasabi, Taj…

Karavalli food festival at Sonargaon, Taj Bengal

Karavalli food comprises of the south-western region of India and it’s primarily a non-vegetarian cuisine. Meat along with seafood rules there. And, just like Bukhara is an epitome of north-Indian cuisine, Karavalli in Taj Gateway Bangalore is considered as the Mecca of south Indian, or rather Karavalli cuisine in India. Chef Naren Thimmaiah (executive chef…

Beeru’s- 3 idiots on a beef breakfast trail

Personally, we bongs are basically lyadh-khor (you can start bashing me now… ). Any sunday means waking up late in the morning and after having the morning cup of tea paired with Marie biscoot, the usual chore is a good fish-shopping in the friendly neighborhood fish market. But, we were having a discussion with ayan…

Kashmiri Wazwan food festival in Guchhi, Hyatt Regency

Kashmiri cuisine is something, which is extremely rare to get, not only in Kolkata, but throughout India. So, when I got invited to the Kashmiri food festival at Guchhi, the specialty Indian restaurant at Hyatt Regency Kolkata, I was pretty excited. The festival is there at Guchhi, Hyatt Regency Kolkata over dinner till 15th August…

Few restaurants where I am loving the biryani recently

I love my biryani and no that’s not a statement. Out of the few things that bind Kolkata together, biryani ranks high among them. We are kind of finicky when it comes to that particular item. But recently, few joints have come up, who’re giving some serious thought on it and producing some seriously good…

Beef joints one should try in Kolkata- Part 1

Let me be honest (now, people say that’s one of my weak points). There are a lot of restaurants Kolkata which serve good beef preparations. Now, what separates the good from the rest or rather the great from the good- is the question. Frankly, as a food blogger, I strongly feel, food is one hell…

Bohri foodfestival at Eden Pavillion, ITC Sonar

Bohri cuisine is one of the most underrated and less available cuisines. AS per my knowledge goes, it originated from the Shia muslim community in Yemen, who later traveled largely to western India and Pakistan. Thus there is a strong gujrati confluence in it as well as an overdose of meat, it’s not that we…

Mohamushkil at Dhaba-styled punjabi food festival at Durbari

There is a common trait which is found among all the dhabas in India…. The hot crispy roti (and even that crispiness can be customized) , the butter ladden, heavily spiced dal and those heavenly tandoori chicken. If we forget those classy fine-dining variety of kebabs, any day, those earthy tandoori chicken is drool-worthy. Now,…

Mohamushkil at Siliguri – the short foodie trip

This year, with family (yes, with my own wife), I’ve been on a trip to north bengal. and I’ve managed to find out few lesser-known god-foresaken places. You can read about the same here.  Now, once we came down to Siliguri, it was like a homecoming for my mother. She was literally dying to watch her favorite…

Thank you …..

Firstly, Thanks a lot to everyone. Really, I mean, with folded hands, from the bottom of my heart, thanks. Rarely such happens when a normal mango-people, almost reaching his forty, get to celebrate his birthday- forget about celebrating in a grand manner. But this year, thanks for my friends and well-wisher, it was a different…
