Saanya Gulati's Blog, La Barca

Although Lower Marsh has only recently been in the limelight for its indie cafes and quirky vibe, La Barca has been around for the last three decades Tucked away right at the end of the lane, its rather traditional and unassuming exteriors make it easy to miss. It doesn’t help that it’s located across the colourful Cubana that is constantly…

There are few things that prevent me from getting out of bed for weekend brunch. Even nights spent watching ‘Master of None,’ which was last month's procrastination project. Plus, the weather finally reaching double digits made for a pleasant walk down Westminster Bridge, barring the occasional tourists who give you strange looks for power walking. It doesn’t help that I’m…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Pancake Recipe

The versatility of the pancake never ceases to amaze me. From the flat to the fluffy, thin and thick, to the buttermilk, ricotta, and rice-based, I’m all for discovering new flavours and textures. When it comes to making pancakes, I’ve generally steered clear. That is, until I woke up one morning with an unexpected craving. The prospect of trekking for…

While the Itsus and Wasabis of London offer abundant outlets for your sushi fix, I was searching for a more out-of-the-box, and less out-of-the-plastic-box Japanese dining experience. And no, my student budget is not cut out for the Nobus of this world. So when my friend booked a table at Kurobuta, a hip-Japanese bar and grill, which in fact boasts…

Saanya Gulati's Blog - Honey Mustard Chicken

When I’m in charge of the menu, I usually resort to vegetarian food. Those who follow my Snapchat feed may know this, from the endless flood of fried-rice, fresh salads and avocado shots. But there are always exceptions to the rule, and this one involves some exception-al honey-mustard chicken. I couldn’t resist the pun. This dish is both time and cost…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Terttulia

herehile Mumbai’s mills and malls have rapidly emerged into popular food hubs, they have rendered standalone restaurants to be rather underrated. But for some it’s the niche status they’re after, rather than mass accolades. Terttulia’s secluded spot in Shivaji Park awards it exactly that. Of course being ranked #1 in Pune didn’t make it entirely anonymous, but amidst a large…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Hummus Salad

Week 1 of London student life and you're amidst a burgeoning pile of books, and a diminishing bank balance. Between navigating London’s rainy streets and grabbing every opportunity to socialize, it almost seems humanly possible to find the time to cook. Although I am managing the seemingly impossible, most of my meals consist of pastas, sandwiches and salads. In my defense I am still struggling to…
