I find breakfast to be the most interesting meal of the day. Despite skipping it when I’m having a busy morning bursting with meetings or  the fact that my breakfast affair at home is a rather modest one, it is still my favourite meal. It is usually when I travel that I do the most justice to a hotel breakfast buffet or the occasional weekend indulgence like I did recently. As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m going to now start taking the time to do more breakfast based reviews and this is my second one in what is…

The one place in Singapore I absolutely loved was Chinatown. Truth be told I’d be comfortable in a Chinatown in any city. I’m already involved in a mad passionate love affair with their food, but I’m starting to fall in love with all things Chinese. I spent half a day walking through china town trying to take in everything and feverishly clicking away on my new camera.       I managed to visit a Chinese temple which is beautifully colourful and even as I try to compare it with a Hindu temple or a parsi fire temple, it’s just…

My dining woes are not just restricted to Mumbai but I find have extended to Pune as well. Off late even old favourites in the city have started to disappoint and I find myself wondering when I’m going to enjoy my meal the next time I eat out. I’m not really looking for fancy presentation or Michelin star food, just grub that tastes good and I feel I got my money’s worth. I’ve been visiting the city quite often this month but had nothing to really write about till I stumbled upon this 3 week old fledging restaurant called Habibi…

It’s been a while since my last review and that’s because I’ve been spending more time in the kitchen experimenting and enjoying myself than actually venturing out and dining. Partly because I’m having fun and partly because I’m quite fed up of sub standard food and re visiting the same haunts. The other day I found myself in Andheri dining at this relatively new restaurant called Levo. I know absolutely nothing of Andheri and apart from the handful of restaurants and main roads I have no idea where to dine or how to even get there! It seems like Andheri…

This is a whole new year and a whole new me. I’ve really surprised myself. We’re 3 weeks into the new year and I find myself doing things I wouldn’t have given a second thought before. My diet and quest for good health is in full bloom, I’ve taken up kickboxing which is shocking because I actually abhor any form of exercise and now I’m willingly paying someone to come home and kick my ass into shape. I find myself generally happier and much calmer than usual and while this is all refreshing the most shocking change so far has…

This Pune trip like most usually turn out to be, was wonderfully hectic. With a cheese festival, judging contests and interviewing some lovely people for work, I managed to squeeze in a lazy lunch. After a while I enjoyed a nice lazy lunch with lovely company and tasty food. Soy is a restaurant I hadn’t heard of before but seems to be quite popular. Located on Bund Garden Road this restaurant with friendly staff and red themed decor seems like a relaxed place to dine. My lung fung soup filled with prawn was lovely but the real surprise was the…

The last time I had a really memorable meal was at Salt Water Café in Bandra. It was memorable for so many reasons. I was dining with an old college friend, coincidently the first person I ever spoke to in college, a fantabulous long lazy lunch that stretched into four glorious hours of eating  and also because we picked a lovely spot on their terrace later to enjoy our dessert.  In fact everytime I’ve dined at Salt Water Café since, I think of him and the hours spent indulging and enjoying food. For me, the best dining companion is one…

My blog is my personal expression and a window into my food world. Instead of a restaurant review this time I thought I’d list a couple of places in different cities or towns which I personally think are MUST visit joints. I know I’m going to get feedback with everyone suggesting different places and maybe even veto-ing what I’ve listed but these are Tiny’s top noteworthy picks at the moment. I decided to start with Pune, and I’m aware that there are a lot of other places as well but I think this sums it up because they are not…

If there is a restaurant that I have yet to experience but almost everyone I know has heaped praises on it, it is Ming Yang at The Taj Lands End Bandra. Ming Yang is considered one of the top notch Chinese restaurants in the city and it’s a pity I have never had the pleasure of dining here. A lunch here recently,sampling their exclusive ‘Dragon Boat Festival Menu’ changed all that. The Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated in China, Hong Kong and now  in other parts of the world where a massive dragon boat is taken out and while rowing along…

Nom Nom is one of the latest restaurants to hit Bandra. In a desperate attempt to scout new restaurants I asked fellow foodies on twitter and facebook to recommend a new Chinese joint in Bandra and this seemed to be a popular choice. So off to Nom Nom I go with high expectations. Nom Nom doesn’t take any reservations at least not on a Saturday night so we took a chance and trekked there. Luckily we landed a table.    At first glance the decor seems to be rather soothing with its dark black and wooden interiors with a bat…
