It’s no secret that small plates give me big joy. So when faced with the challenge of picking a venue for the father’s last dinner in London, Tapas seemed like a safe bet. Considering we were spending the night at my uncle’s near Brixton, whose food scene I’m less familiar with, the raving reviews about Boqueria gave us little need…

Saanya Gulati's April Fools Day Blog Post

There's nothing like an entire day dedicated of pranks to remind you that it's the beginning of a new month. And in my case, the end of my internship.   My social media timeline woke up to a flood of feeds that lamented the utter failure that Bollywood’s latest Ki and Ka was.   Of course, that was hardly a surprise…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Love and Scandal

School's officially out and despite the impending misery of deadlines and dissertations there's excitement in the air. With daylight savings ending tomorrow, sunlight shall soon shine into the wee hours of the night. That’s an added perk for those of us who live in Lower Marsh where darkness not only equals depression, but also dodgy. Maybe walking home at night…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Insta Algo change

Anyone in the Instagram world would have found it impossible to escape the desperate pleas flooding their timeline yesterday, by brands and bloggers asking followers not to miss post notifications. Of course, that includes yours truly, because why not jump on the blogger bandwagon. If I’m being completely honest, I face a slight identity conflict here: as a blogger, it's in my…

The Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race is a timeless tradition in London, so watching it is a quintessentially London activity to engage in. Excitement levels were high until the weather forecast expected hailstorms all day and India made it to the Quarter Finals in the cricket world cup. If there’s any rivalry that compares to the Ox-bridge rowing one, it’s the India-Australia cricket…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Sushi n Sticks

What happens when you mix Danish and Japanese cuisine? It’s not a question that has often been asked, let alone answered, which is what affords Sticks ‘n’ Sushi its experimental tag. Reserving a table the week before the father’s arrival was a wise move considering the couple ahead of us is told that the wait is at least half an…

Saanya Gulati's Blog, Barrafina

There’s something delightful about small plates. Blame it on my Indian heritage, but I'm all for culinary cultures that are centred on sharing. It’s also probably why Dim Sums, Sushis, and Tapas feature high in my list of all-time favourite dishes. So, apart from the raving reviews I have heard about Barrafina, I was eager at the prospect of dabbling in different…

It’s that time of year when your calendar tells you it’s spring but your body tells you it’s still winter. The good news is that the days aren’t dreadfully short, which is finally motivating me to get back to my early-bird ways. Speaking of birds, look who paid a visit to my window-sill this morning. https://www.instagram.com/p/BDDA0BZt4dB/?taken-by=bombaydelhigirl I’m writing this on…

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…
