Bangkok Vegetarian Restaurant – Authentic Italian Food

A Bangkok vegetarian restaurant that is also vegan friendly and serves authentic Italian food; one would say too good to be true!

Govinda Pizzeria and Italian Food is the only Bangkok vegetarian restaurant that serves all vegetarian and vegan friendly Italian cuisine in Bangkok. In a country where as a vegetarian one may feel limited in terms of food options, this restaurant is a hidden gem. Watch this video from my visit to Govinda in Bangkok.

At Govinda, you could find vegan friendly cheese, meat replacements and of course delicious vegetarian food. All of the food I tried here is of exceptional quality.

Pane Della Casa

Bangkok Vegetarian Restaurant

This bread platter is something that you absolutely must try at Govinda. It includes their homemade bread, which by the way is amazing. And a red chilli spread, along with some chopped tomatoes mixed with olive oil and basil. The chilli spread is fiery, but delicious. And tomatoes on toasted bread is a match made in heaven!

Govinda Special Salad

Bangkok Vegetarian Restaurant

If you enjoy a good salad, then this is the one for you. It’s got it all – greens, flavour and cheese! Steamed spinach, lettuce, grated carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, avocado and also a few pieces of fried potatoes! And delicious vegetarian mozzarella cheese. This comes in quite a portion size so you will be able to enjoy a lot of fiber.

Pink Sauce Ravioli

Bangkok Vegetarian Restaurant

This is probably the most famous dish on the menu here at Govinda. Their pink sauce ravioli is perfection. The right balance of creamy and tangy flavours in the sauce and appropriately thick, and spinach stuffed ravioli. It’s difficult to stop eating this because its just so good!

Pizza

Bangkok Vegetarian Restaurant

I’d recommend trying their Margherita Pizza – simple and soulful. Perfect thin crust base, delicious sauce and lots of cheese.

Pana Cotta

A vegetarian version pana cotta and yet such a brilliant texture. Perfect melt in your mouth feel and topped with a generous amount of chocolate sauce, this is the best way to end your meal at Govinda.

I absolutely recommend Govinda in Bangkok. It is the best place for vegetarian Italian food and a must try whenever you are in the city.

Chandigarh food, shopping and tourist places

Chandigarh Food
Exploring Chandigarh food, shopping places and a lot of other things to do in this post.

I tried a few famous Chandigarh food dhabas, shopped at local markets and basically spent a day around city beautiful! Watch everything in my video from Chandigarh.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

Here are all the places I visited on my first day in Chandigarh.

Sindhi Sweets

Chandigarh Food

Located in the sector 17 market, this place is famous for chaat and its delicious sabzis. I recommend trying the Dahi Golgappa and their special Meal – a set thali. Sindhi Sweets is a place popular among locals, so it is a little busy. But definitely come here and try out their food. You can even try out their sweet dish items which is what you’ll see as soon as you enter their store.

Sector 17 Market

Love cheap shopping? Then sector 17 market should be fun! It’s honestly not all cheap shopping – there are shops selling the prettiest phulkari dupattas, but you do need to bargain well for them. And so many street side vendors selling jewellery, bags, shoes, tshirts and so much more. You can even just grab a softy and chill here – the vibe in the evening is pretty cool.

Indian Coffee House

This is one of the oldest cafe chains in India. You’ll find an Indian Coffee House in so many Indian cities. No nonsense place serving coffee and snacks. Definitely try their cold coffee on a hot afternoon.

Zakir Hussain Rose Garden

Chandigarh Food

Such an instagrammable spot! Just about 10 minutes by rickshaw from Sector 17 is the Zakir Hussain Rose Garden, in sector 16. Come here for the pretty roses, in different colors and also for all the greenery.

Pal Dhaba

Chandigarh Food

A must visit when in Chandigarh! Pal Dhaba is a place famous for its non-veg food – butter chicken, mutton and more but you do get a good Paneer Butter Masala here. Definitely try if you are vegetarian. And their dal makhani is awesome!

If authentic South Indian meal in Mumbai is something you are craving, then your search ends here!

This is my experience of a South Indian meal in Mumbai at Udipi Shri Krishna Boarding in Matunga. Watch the video to know more.

Matunga is the best area in Mumbai to enjoy a good South Indian meal. The have a lot of restaurants serving delicious food – whether its idli dosa or a meal like this one.

Sawai Veg Restaurant Pune | Special Indian & Chinese Food

Sawai veg restaurant
I recently visited Sawai veg restaurant in Pune and tried out a wide range of their menu specials.

Watch this video to know what I ate at Sawai veg restaurant.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

A restaurant is not only known for their food ingredients and taste, but also for the uniqueness in their dishes. And especially now, in timed of social media, we all want to witness something different. So I decided to try all the new Special Dishes at Sawai veg restaurant.

In terms of appetisers, they have a range of Indian tandoori and Chinese starters. Here is what I tried.

Spinach Malaysian

Sawai veg restaurant

This felt like spinach manchurian tossed in a delicious sauce. The generous amount of cashews and garlic on topped gave it an amazing flavour.

Rozali Kebab

Sawai veg restaurant

Paneer cubes, with paneer stuffing and topped with lots of cheese. This is one heavy duty dish.

Shanghai Paneer

Sawai veg restaurant

Paneer and veggies tosses in a hot and sweet kind of sauce. This dish also had a very generous amount of veggies including bell peppers, onions, cabbage and lots more.

Aloo Ki Nazakat

Sawai veg restaurant

Potato shells, filled with shredded vegetables and generously topped with cheese.

Cheese Soneri Kebab

Sawai veg restaurant

These boat shaped kebabs were nothing like I’ve ever seen before! Crunchy on the outside and a delicious filling inside.

I also tried the Sawai special Soup, which was a delicious sweet corn soup. Very creamy and comforting!

Sawai veg restaurant

In terms of main course too, I stuck to trying out their specials. The gravies here not only had a unique name, but were also quite different in their ingredient combinations and presentation.

Sawai veg restaurant

Kasturi Moti Masala

A delicious methi flavoured gravy. It also has a fried kofta of sorts, made from mixed veggies and is topped with lots of veggies.

Sawai Sev

This was a slightly spicy gravy with a sweet tikki inside. Very good alternating flavours from the sweet and cruncy tikki and the spicy yet tangy gravy.

Sawai Special Veg

A sweet yellow gravy topped with a generous amount of raisins, cashews and tutti fruiti bits. A lot of vegetables in this one – french beans, peas to name a few.

Paneer Rasida Masala

A rich paneer dish! Delicious tangy onion gravy with paneer cubes that were stuffed. This is actually more of a semi gravy – not too liquid, but absolutely lovely in taste.

Lajjatdar Tikki Masala

Another tikki and gravy combination. This tikki however was savoury and also went really well with the gravy, which is super creamy and thick. And the tikki also has a generous amount of methi, which is toned down by the creaminess of the gravy.

I recommend trying out Sawai veg restaurant in Pune. Apart from their specials, they also have regular gravies, snacks and a wide variety of desserts. You can know more about them on their website.

Global Fusion Buffet – one of the best buffet in Mumbai!

Global Fusion Buffet
Global Fusion Buffet is something that always gets me excited!

There was a time when the Global Fusion buffet was a staple for any family outing, team meeting and so on. And it still continues to be on my favorite list, when it comes to buffet experiences in Mumbai.

Watch this video for my Global Fusion Buffet experience.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

Global Fusion has many outlets throughout the city, and my favorite ones are in Andheri, Bandra and Worli. Their spread is mainly Asian food and you can find everything here! From regular items like fried rice and noodles, to sushi, to stir fry veggies and lots more. In fact, they are known for their starter or appetizer spread which is almost 25-30 items and also includes a few Indian dishes. Starters, main course and lots of dessert – you will find it all in the Global Fusion Buffet.

Some of my favorite items from the Global Fusion Buffet are:

Crispy Corn with Waterchestnut

Shanghai Potatoes

Corn Cream Cakes

Vegetarian Kebabs

Stir fried veggies

Dim sum

I usually end up skipping main course because of gorging too much on appetizers. However, when I do end up eating it’s usually the noodles or rice.

Their dessert spread is also something I love. Ice creams, mini pastries, tarts and lots more. And they are also eggless!

So that was my Global Fusion Buffet experience. Do let me know if you have visited the place and what did you enjoy the most there.

Best Butter Paneer in Delhi – Vegetarian Indian Food

Butter Paneer
Butter Paneer – soft paneer cubes in a buttery, tangy gravy.

My love for Butter Paneer has just grown in the past few years. It’s a dish that I very comfortably order at many places; however, there are a few that serve it beautifully well.

These 2 restaurants in Delhi serve the best Butter paneer I’ve had! Watch this video to know more.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

butter paneer

I’ll talk about Gulati’s first. The paneer here is delicious – tasty gravy, soft paneer cubes. And I particularly feel that their rotis are really good too. Located in Pandara road in Delhi, Gulati’s is a restaurant specialising in Indian food. And is pretty well known among locals! They are known for their Butter Chicken, however being a vegetarian I can totally vouch for their food as well. They are pretty popular so they do get a lot of crowd, so my suggestion is that be prepared for a little bit of waiting.

Butter Paneer

Next is Moti Mahal. This is the original Moti Mahal in old Delhi. This is located in Daryaganj and is known as the birth place of Butter Chicken. Their butter chicken is very well known even today. So I thought of trying their butter paneer. Pretty tasty as well. Don’t expect too much of an ambience here; go here simply for the taste of it.

I would love to know more places for delicious Paneer dishes from you. So do leave that in the comments below.
