I have a passion for all things good in life- be it travel, food, watching plays& films, photography, drinking champagne or just getting pampered in a Spa. Luckily being a Hotel Management graduate, an ex-chef, nutritionist and a journalist, I am eminently qualified to do my job of writing and sharing experiences. My blog is my world and my posts are my straightforward thoughts...come along with me on my culinary voyage!
who's visited a city tries out various food outlets, given that he or she's a
foodie…and those are usually the well-known restaurants of that city, but only
someone who's lived in a city for a considerable period of time especially in
his growing up years can recommend its little nooks n corner joints!! Which is
exactly what I propose to do in this column”, shares Rohit Roy, Actor, Director
PAV BHAJI AND PULAV
Gf-1, White House, Panchwati Circle, Navrangpura,
It is the best in the world and I can challenge
anyone who can beat it. It melts in your mouth quite like the dollop of butter
that tops it!
Shivranjani Cross Rd, Arjun Tower,
132 Feet Ring Rd, Ambavadi.
Shreyas Colony, Navrangpura.
Shivalik Building, Near Krishnabaug,
Maninagar, Mani Nagar.
For people who are fans of North Indian cuisine, I
highly recommend the Chole bhature at Havmor!! It is outstanding and the
accompanying gaajar ka achar is to die for! Of course if you are on a no oil
diet, forget about it!! The bhature has more oil than flour!!
AMBIKA DAL VADA CENTRE
3, Shivam Complex, Near Red Rose Cafe, Navrangpura.
I've eaten dal wada in Ahmedabad and many other
cities but nothing gets even remotely close to Ambika. It is their special
recipe which is unbeatable. Many of you cynics out there must be thinking; a
dal wada is a dal wada, how different can it be?? I’ll say… Try it and if you
don't like it, sue me!!
The House of MG, Opposite Sidi Saiyad
Jali, Lal Darwaja.
roof top restaurant that serves gujju food! It is definitely a not to miss, run
by the famous Mangaldas family of Ahmedabad. It has a typical village setting
and the quality of food is top drawer. Of course slightly more expensive than
the other places I have listed.
THE GREAT ITALIAN PIZZA
WAH PIZZA & BHEL HOUSE
Shop No 13 Municipal Market, C G Road, Navrangpura.
Only, there's nothing Italian about a pizza in
Ahmedabad!! It’s the Indian version!! Jasuben or Wah pizza bhel?? They are both
superb cheap thrill pizza’s….Just heaps of cheese and tomato sauce on a pizza
base!! But tasty as hell and unique…Tough call!!
Vishram Park Apartments,
Shubhlabh Society, Aastha Bunglows.
finally, desert!!! My favourite part of any meal; what can I say?? The ice
cream here is everything that an ice cream should be ... Full of cream, it’s
like 2 women in a house are trying to outdo each other with their flavours.
You’ll thank me for this one!!
