One of the best places in the city to get a view of Tokyo. This is a free attraction and all you might have to do is wait up in a line to get to the 45th floor and enjoy the city view. And if you look carefully then you might even be able to spot Mt. Fuji.

Sensoji Temple

Indian Meal on Korean Air – Review

Indian meal on Korean Air
Finding an Indian meal on Korean Air is indeed a good sign!

I was travelling via Korean Air from Hong Kong to Korea and although it was a short flight (slightly over 3 hours), everyone on the flight was served a meal. I was asked if I would like fish or chicken in my meal and I said neither, as I had already opted for a Hindu Vegetarian Meal while booking my flight. The crew was absolutely unaware about my request (a massive miscommunication between the booking site and Korean Air) and so I wasn’t served a meal on that flight. However, they made a note of my request and did confirm to arrange a meal on the next flight that I would be taking from Korea to Los Angeles.

So yes, finding an Indian meal on Korean Air felt really good. And I’m actually glad that the crew on the first flight decided to help me out here; this second flight from Korea to Los Angeles was almost 14 hours and there’s no way I could have made it without vegetarian food. So a big shout out to the staff of Korean Air for this.

Coming to the meal itself, I think it was one of the most non-greasy meals I’ve had on a flight. Airplane food isn’t the best tasting and is usually very oily. This meal was actually pretty good in that sense. You can watch this video of all the items I had while I was on the Korean Air Flight.

So if you are an Indian vegetarian, and travelling by Korean Air, my advise would be to choose Hindu Vegetarian Meal while booking your flight. And also a day prior to flying just call the helpline and check if they have received your meal preference. It’s extra work, but at least it ensures you have a proper meal while flying. In terms of hospitality and service, I hold the Korean Air staff in very high regard and they honestly go out of their way to ensure you have a comfortable flight.

Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for my next post.

Food of Connaught Place

Food of Connaught place
While travelling, I had a halt for a few hours in Delhi. I decided to try out the food of Connaught Place in that time.

As I was deciding the places I wanted to visit for my food of Connaught Place trail, I thought of sticking to some old school ones that I wouldn’t go wrong with. Connaught Place is definitely one happening area where there are so many eateries and choosing just 3 was such a task.

The 3 places I visited were Haldiram’s, Gupta Paan and Nirula’s. And I can happily say that all three were a delightful experience.

You can watch a whole video from my visit to all of these places here.

Haldiram’s

I decided to visit Haldiram’s because I love chaat and what better place to eat Dahi Wada and Gol Gappa! I loved how organized this place is – specific counters for payment, and dedicated item based counters as well. The place was packed and how! And while looking around I noticed that people were ordering everything possible – from chaat to Dosa, to Chole.

Haldirams Dahiwada Food of Connaught place

I absolutely enjoyed my Dahi Wada. Topped with the yummiest of masala and chutneys, this is definitely something you should try.

Gupta Paan at Odeon

Gupta Paan at Odeon Food of Connaught place

Want the weirdest paan, shoved down your mouth? Head over here. I however stuck to a basic meetha paan, which was not at all disappointing.

Nirula’s 

Pizza Nirulas Food of Connaught place

This is India’s oldest fast food chain and such a successful one. I had to visit! I tried their meal which included paneer makhani, dal makhani, rice and rotis and I tried their Pizza. And as diverse as these things are, both were so delicious. I also tried their very famous hot chocolate fudge, and you only have to try it to know that the hype is totally worth it.

Paneer Makhani at Nirulas Food of Connaught place

So that was it from my visit to Connaught Place, Delhi. Definitely let me know in the comments below about your most memorable meal on a trip.

Top 5 Nainital Restaurants serving Vegetarian Food

Nainital Restaurants
I recently spent a couple of days in the beautiful hills of Nainital and obviously gorged on some good food too. So here my TOP 5 Nainital Restaurants that serve some good vegetarian food as well.

You can check out a video of my Nainital Food Diary here. It includes all of my recommended Nainital Restaurants as well as some street food that I had there.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

If you are a vegetarian, then you should definitely visit Giannis Pure Veg Restaurant in Nainital. This one was one of the first ones I visited while I was there and enjoyed a scrumptious meal here.

Nainital Restaurants Giannis Pure Veg

I started with the Tomato Soup which felt really warm and comforting in the cool weather.

Nainital Restaurants Giannis Pure Veg

What I recommend eating here is their set meal style Thali. It’s quite a decent quantity and could even be shared between 2 people, with probably an addition of extra roti.The Thali comes with naan, rice, dal, two different types of subzi, raita, papad and Gulab Jamun for sweet dish.

Nainital Restaurants Giannis Pure Veg

Sakley’s – The Mountain Cafe is another place I recommend. This isn’t a pure vegetarian place, but I did find a worthwhile veggie pizza here, albeit homestyle.

Nainital Restaurants Sakleys

And if you are fine eating dessert with egg, then I highly recommend trying out something from their sweet selection. They have a wide range of pastries, eclairs, puffs and more. I tried their Chocolate Truffle and their Chocolate Eclair and both were really fantastic. Fresh and yum!

Nainital Restaurants Sakleys

This place is really cute and cozy and has a very Swiss Cafe vibe to it. You could even come here and enjoy a cup of coffee.

Nainital Restaurants Sakleys

Another pure vegetarian gem in Nainital is Chandni Chowk Restaurant. This one is themed around the original Chandni Chowk in Delhi and serves all kinds of chaat, delicious appetizers and of course piping hot Jalebi.

Nainital Restaurants Chandni chowk

I tried their special Paneer subzi which was quite delicious.

Nainital Restaurants Chandni Chowk

What stood out for me was their Jalebi and Masala Milk. One of the best jalebis I have ever had, these were an absolute indulgence.

Nainital Restaurants Chandni Chowk

If you want a good ‘lunch with a lake view’ then Zooby’s Kitchen totally provides that. This isn’t pure vegetarian, but does serve good vegetarian food. I tried their Aloo Mutter, Biryani and Stuffed Paratha and was honestly quite happy with the food and the service.

Nainital Restaurants Zoobys Kitchen

And as in this post, this was my last meal in Nainital. I visited Machan on my final day and indulged in some Indian-style Chinese food and loved it. I tried a pretty basic combination of Fried Rice and Manchurian and absolutely enjoyed it. Their portions are huge and probably sufficient for a minimum of 3 people.

Nainital Restaurants Machan

So those were a few recommendations of Nainital Restaurants from my visit here. Hope you found this post helpful.

Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for my next post. XOXO!

Singapore Airlines Indian Breakfast Review

Singapore Airlines Indian Breakfast
While flying to Singapore, I experienced the Singapore Airlines Indian Breakfast meal and decided to film it and kind of review it for you guys.

Here’s my Singapore Airlines Indian Breakfast Review. Watch it by clicking on the video below.

Subscribe to my YouTube here

Sometime last November, I was heading from Mumbai To Singapore for a small family vacation. So on my flight from Mumbai to Singapore I enjoyed this inflight breakfast in Singapore Airlines and decided to share it with you.

While booking the ticket, you get an option to decide what kind of breakfast you want. And I believe the broad options were, Vegan, Asian and Indian.  And these options were further broken down into non-vegetarian and vegetarian. I’m a vegetarian and so I decided to play safe and stick to Indian Vegetarian breakfast.

Now I have travelled a fair bit and am definitely not the biggest fan of airplane food. I mean I can literally name a handful of flights where the meal has been worth remembering. But, Singapore Airlines definitely have one of the best airplane food that I have tasted so far. It seems pretty close to fresh and has a decent taste as well. Sometimes, airplane food seems really dry and mealy but this wasn’t the case with Singapore Airlines at all.

Here are all the items I had in my Singapore Airlines Indian Breakfast
Fresh Fruits
Watermelon, Papaya, Musk Melon, Pineapple

Mini Idlis stuffed with Cashews and Raisins

Upma

Sambhar

Coconut Chutney

Bun

Mixed Fruit Jam

Masala Tea

My return flight was Singapore Airlines too, but I was too tired to film and it was also a midnight flight so I just really wanted to sleep in on it! But I hope you enjoyed watching and reading about my Singapore Airlines Indian Breakfast. Do share it with your friends and family, if they are travelling via this airline.

I would love to stay in touch. So do hit me up on my social media.

800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria – Los Angeles

800 Degrees Neapolitan

Travelling makes me really happy. So does food. So here’s a snippet of something that I really enjoyed while I was in Los Angeles recently. Watch this video from my visit to 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria in Downtown, LA. And while your at it, do Subscribe to my YouTube channel as well.

Subscribe to my YouTube here 

800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria was just a couple of blocks from my hotel, and I visited this place one afternoon for lunch. They did have a whole authentic feel going on – open kitchen, multiple huge brick ovens and of course Margherita Pizza! If you have been following me, then you know that I absolutely enjoy a good Margherita – so here I was! And the best part was that I got to film a lot of the pizza being made. That’s how this video came along. 

The pizza here was good – kinda soft and soggy like the authentic one, mild sauce and loads of Olive Oil and cheese. It was good pizza and I think I’d rate it a 4 on 5.

Here are some more pictures that you can check out from my visit here.

So if you are in Los Angeles, then do visit 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria. They also had a gelato section, which unfortunately I didn’t end up trying. Their pizza is quite nice and a great option if you are looking for a change than the regular American style sliced pizza. And they do have a lot of branches, across countries as well – Las Vegas, Dubai and many more.

I hope you enjoyed reading and watching. I know it’s been a while since there was a blog post but there are many interesting ones coming. So stay tuned and also subscribe to my YouTube – I do upload videos quite often. And also follow me on my social media. All of the links are below.
