Saanya Gulati's Blog, Chandni Chowk 3

    Eid is around the corner, and that means one thing regardless of your religion: good food. During the month of Ramadan, I had the opportunity to explore the eateries of Mumbai’s Mohammed Ali Road, and Delhi’s Chandni Chowk, which are iconic for their iftar delicacies. If the foodie in you is longing to engage in some culinary explorations,…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Kandy, Elephant Orphanage

Sugar, spice, and everything nice, that’s what Kandy is made of. 3.5 hours from Colombo, Sri Lanka’s second-most populated city is a visual delight with the most vivid shades.

Though Sanchos has become the new go-to for nachos and tacos, it’s probably due to the limited choices because we didn’t find it anything spectacular. So, when we had a craving…

While Chinese cuisine has always been popular in India, dim sums, the quintessential Cantonese dish, have more recently found their place in the Indian palate. (No Delhi, momos are not the same thing!) When my family moved back from Hong Kong, Chinese food was dominated by the likes of China Garden, Chopsticks, and Golden Dragon. A few years later London’s famous…
