ULTIMATE DESI TWIST

ULTIMATE DESI TWIST By Prakriti Bhat I remember, as a kid, the only condiment that fitted with every kind of food was ketchup. I am not very fond of tomatoes but a veg cutlet or stuffed bread would be incomplete without tomato ketchup. Kissan has been a leading ketchup brand, spreading smiles since 1933.

Now, Kissan has launched two new flavours-‘Chilly Tomato’ and ‘Sweet & Spicy’ to…Read more

Lights Camera Action

Lights Camera Action By Anubhav Sapra In Khari Baoli, Pakodimal doodhwala used to sell excellent burfiwali lassi, which had a piece of burfi mixed in the yoghurt.

Dutt Market in Rajouri Garden. I was extremely delighted to have…Read more

Barcelos

Barcelos By Prakriti Bhat Amongst the swarm of eating joints in Khan Market is debutante Barcelos which opened on 26th February, 2015 under Mr. Costa Maziz. It is situated opposite Café Turtle and is adjacent to the Chinese restaurant Soy, so locating it is not at all a problem. Like the other restaurants in this area, Barcelos too is situated atop a narrow staircase. Delhi has a lot of options for Italian and other such cuisines but this restaurant promises a completely different experience by bringing the Afro-Portuguese cuisine to your plate at…Read more
