L’Express in Brussels

During a bus tour in Belgium, I met an Indian girl called Deepa. After the tour ended, we both decided to have dinner together and that’s when she introduced me to a Lebanese restaurant called ‘L’Express’. It is very close to the Grand Place and it is a small narrow looking restaurant. The pita chicken (normal) costs Euros 9 and …

Chicken curry with rice

I have mainly had a stop over at Kuala Lumpur airport. I have tried almost all the restaurants at the airport, including their food courts and cafes. But I have never liked the food until today. Today for the first time I tried at ‘Living Room’ cafe and I loved the food. I really enjoyed the Chicken curry with rice. …

Lord of the Fries

Do you love hot chips (fries) as much as I do? Then ‘Lord of the Fries‘ is the place to be for amazing and delicious hot chips. I think they make the best chips in the World.

Food heaven – Noosa Heads

All I did in Noosa Heads was to eat and drink. The restaurants and bars along the beach was amazing. And the food was even more amazing.

What to eat in Brunei?

Brunei is not so popular among the tourists. I was skeptical about food. I was not sure what kind of food it offered. But.. I was very surprised to find so many Indian restaurants and I was even more surprised to find out that locals love Indian food, especially Dosa. I tried two Indian restaurants and both times the food …

Yummy Lamington

One of the must eats while in Australia is Lamington. Lamington is Australia’s very own dessert. It is a cake dipped in chocolate and coated with grated coconut. And it is definitely a piece of heaven on Earth. A common variation also has cream in between two lamingtons. In 2006, 21st July was declared as National Lamington Day. At Woolworths, …

One day in Bangalore

Bangalore, my home, is a city in the Southern part of India. There are plenty of things to do in and around Bangalore. Even before I get into the one day itinerary, I would like to mention that one day to explore this beautiful city is less. However, if you just have one day, then I would suggest: Morning: Head …

Rann Utsav (Kutch desert festival)

Who doesn’t fancy a beautiful tent on the magical white sand desert with the perfect pleasant weather! And how about a spell bounding sunset or a glowing full moon in the background? And some camels to go with? Is this too much to ask? Does this sound too dreamy, to be true? Am I talking about a perfect staged scene …

I was scared and skeptical, but I decided to take a leap of faith and created solopassport. Today, its the birthday time and my solopassport has turned 1 year old. In this …

Spicy minced chicken

Sailors Thai is a famous Thai restaurant in The Rocks, Sydney. I happened to visit this restaurant with a friend.

Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate Fondue in Max Brenner is something that I can never get enough of. It is so amazingly delicious. Chocolate Fondue consists of fresh strawberries, bananas, white and pink marshmallows and banana bread served with hot melted milk and dark chocolate. My favorite and the ones that I drool over on, are the marshmallows dipped in hot melted dark chocolate. …

Wine & Dine

Life is good with food and wine 😛 . Trying different cuisines and tasting different wines are an integral part of traveling. I personally feel travel is never complete unless you have eaten the local food and drank the local wine. My suggestions on the best food and wine I have tasted in my travel journeys.  

Chocolate marble chiffon cake

I am grateful about the day when I decided to try a slice of chocolate marble chiffon cake, at the Pishon cafe in Chatswood in Sydney. It is a chiffon (trust me – it is as smooth as chiffon) chocolate sponge cake with chocolate chantilly cream and chocolate flakes. This is one of the must trys to all the chocolate or …

Dark Baked Chocolate Cake

I think that the dark baked chocolate cake at Guylian Cafe, The Rocks, Sydney is one of the best creations in the history of deserts. The dessert consists of a rich Belgian chocolate cake with their signature ganache, strawberries and a scoop of dark chocolate ice cream. It is exquisite and tasteful. A definite must try for all the cake lovers! …

Miang Kham (Thai beetle leaf)

Miang Kham is a traditional snack from Thailand. It is mixture of lemon grass, gangplank, lemon, ginger, red onion, mint, shredded coconut, peanut and fried onion. I tasted Miang Kham in a small, not so fancy Thai restaurant called Khobkhun situated in Lindfield in Sydney. The mix of lemon and mint gave a tangy taste and the onion added a little …
