No two ways about it. The six-month-old Asian gastropub KOKO has hit the sweet spot. Many sweet spots, actually. Food. Drinks and Ambience.

Review: Mr. Baozi

Posted on

It was the interesting name”Mr Baozi” that propelled us to  Juhu’s new gastro-pub. It was also the fact that it has the same owners as my favourite and the hugely popular The Bar Stock Exchange.

Posted on Updated on

Happily many a new restaurant are giving priority to our well-being. Like The Korner House where the brilliant chef, author and TV host Vicky Ratnani even offers up “bowls of health and flavor” (Please note flavor is given equal importance.)

Review: Luna Gusta

Posted on Updated on

I’d heard about  the hot new opening at  St Regis: “Luna Nudo Gusta”. And the lovely  mouthful of a name had me mystified and confused. Luna Gusta’s ambiance is high gloss nostalgia with a contemporary sheen.

Culinary Stars

CHEFS CHINU AND CHRISTOPHE

Last week I wrote about the gifted IT professional Taru Suri, who makes amazing jewelery, watches et al out of Belgian chocolate. This discovery I made while putting finishing touches on the Times Food guide 2017. Once again, this week we applaud the young culinary stars Shilarna Vaze aka Chef Chinu (Le Cordon Bleu) & her Swiss husband Chef Christophe Perrin.  The brilliant young couple’s  Gaia Gourmet’s wide repertoire spans continents. It hits the perfect balance between authenticity &creativity, luxury & fun, be it buffets to sit-down dinners, weddings to corporate events &board lunches to tea parties. They have Bollywood stars, corporate czars, consular corp and page 3 denizens eating out of their hands. Kudos!

Should you have know any  culinary stars please emailrashmiudaysingh2017@gmail.com. Waitingly yours.

My kind of Jewellery

I confess I’m not a jewellery fan! I feel like a Christmas tree when I wear it, but give me Taru Suri’s exquisite chocolate jewellery (made of the finest Belgian chocolate) anyday. Taru the brilliant IT professional makes time for her passion and makes chocolate watches, cigars, photo frames etc.I discovered her (thanks to Bela Dalal) while researching  the Times food guide 2017 (on it’s way to press now) : TG’s kitchen 08879629529.
