If you are a foodie then Chandigarh should be a must visit on your cards. One of the best time to visit the ‘City Beautiful’ is during the start of Winter season.
Evenings are very pleasant with the mercury hovering slightly below 10 degrees. If you are from that part of the country where you don’t get the chance to take out your winter clothes then you will be super happy. The jacket that you had bought and kept safely secured in your wardrobe will come to your help while you are in Chandigarh.
The first thing that comes to your mind while thinking of the cuisine here will be Paranthas, Kulchas, Chole Batture, Sarson ka saag & makkai di roti, dahi bhale, etc. When I was planning to have my dinner I had all these dishes in my mind. I started searching for the best restaurants in Cgarh. There were some great Punjabi cuisine options which popped up when I hit the search button. My eyes caught the attention of a restaurant named “Virgin Courtyard” 😉 . This was rated as one of the top 10 restaurants in Chandigarh. I clicked on the link to check the details. To my surprise it turned out to be a fine dine Italian restaurant.
Goa the pristine beach location is situated to the West of India. The beaches are running alongside the Arabian Sea. Goa has a long history and was also under the Portuguese rule from 1510 to 1961.
Languages spoken in Goa: Konkani, Marathi, Kannada, Hindi, English
The two things that come to your mind while thinking of Goa are Beaches & Beers.
Goa is clearly demarcated in to South Goa and North Goa.
South Goa is pretty much laid back with lot of five star resort properties. The resorts here will give you an option of private beach. The beaches here include Varca, Benaulim, Palolem, Bogmalo, Mormugao, Majorda beach, Colva, Varca.
North Goa is the happening party place. Starting with Sinquerim beach at one end to Ashwem at the other end – you can enjoy the best happening beaches here.
Sinquerim, Candolim, Calangute, Baga, Anjuna, Vagator, Morjim, Arambol and Ashwem are the main beaches stretching from one end of North Goa to the other end.
‘Burn Calories’ is the trend everywhere.
People are doing everything possible to burn the precious calories, earned from eating & drinking at some point in time, by joining a gym or following a strict diet, etc.
I was surprised to see a restaurant which has propped up two months back in Thane which has gone against this tide.
“Kill No Kalories” – yes you read it right. That’s the name of this cosy small cafe started by the Bhatt brothers – Drupad and Yashit.
The ambience and decor is apt. Wall decor contains captions which will bring a smile to your face and will make you decide that this is my “Cheat Day”.
Gaimukh Chowpaty – The new upcoming hang out place in Thane is bustling with lot of visitors especially in the weekends. There are also lot of people who stop by this place on weekdays to have a cutting chai / snacks / smoke a cigarette.
Though it is an upcoming spot in Thane , still it lacks eatery joints / restaurants. So when you visit Gaimukh Chowpaty – the first question that arises in your mind is ‘kya khaaye aur idhar se khayega toh pet karaab hoga ?’
So if you are fond of Bhajiya and Vada pav then there is a good option.
