Shanghai Streets, Bhandup

I am a die-hard fan of Chinese cuisine. Even a humble egg or veg fried rice satiates my gut. Mumbai boasts of an array of Chinese restaurants. They are so widespread that you make a phone call and you are devouring Chinese at home. There is surely a vast difference between the restaurants that serve…

Choco-coffee shake

I can happily trade a candlelight dinner for a glass of chilled cafe frappe and an hour of chit-chat with friends in my favourite coffee joint. In absence of company,  I do not mind sitting alone, grabbing my frappe and flipping though my novel. The aroma of coffee is such a mood-booster. And combination of coffee and vanilla icecream…

Creamy Crab Meat Soup

Crabs, I feel, are hugely underrated – they carry the flavour of the ocean in them and yeah, they are a lot cheaper too. I prefer devouring them at home than in restaurants, where I always fear of flipping it on to someone else on the other table. I’ve had crab meat soup in restaurants a number of times, which is usually a transparent…
