Review: La Folie Lab

Posted on

Its one of those meaningful coincidences: I write from the global capital of patisserie, Paris (here every pastry has a pedigree). And I write about one of India’s greatest patissieurs, Sanjana Patel. The only difference is that Sanjana’s latest Bandra café, La Folie Lab is not just about desserts, she has added on a savory menu too.

Review: Radio Bar

Posted on

I love Bandra bar bar (sorry for that cheap pun). And, happily leading this recent new spate of bar openings is Radio bar. I had been wanting to go there ever since it opened but then one night

( clearly my lucky night, not only did I meet Shahrukh Khan at Rana kapoor’s dinner) but also Manasi Scott (who was anchoring that event). This gorgeous hippie-heart diva, singer, songwriter, actor with  music in her veins and an international hit on the world charts accepted my impromptu invite. She  made for the perfect guest to check out Radio Bar.

Cookie café

Cookies, mystery, romance…if you like any of these then read on. Firstly I love the name “Sweetish  House Mafia”.

I loved the mystery of the hunting down of cookies.
