I arrived and waited for the other two suspects to land in their carriages. In
the meanwhile, I happily went about clicking pictures of the place and what
floor to Focaccia and were met by the Manager- Karthik who greeted us and asked
us if we wanted food. We turned him down saying we were there just for desserts
especially for their Tiramisu.
anything to eat? Starters?
of your Tiramisu please
Comes back with a nice big plate with a huge portion of Tiramisu.
I have had earlier. It wasn’t a neat square nor was it served in a glass. It
came like a blob on the plate [to quote Doc]. And when we asked them to show the main bowl,
the chef brought one giant bowl that had Tiramisu to the brim.
mouth even before I pulled the spoon out. It was divine and so unlike any
others. It was light, gentle and just mucho grando Bellissimo.. [throws kisses in the air]
try the Chocolate Salami. I stared at them all like “are you serious?” and then
was told that it was a dessert and not meat dish. Curious, we asked for a
portion of the same. It looked quite cute- three big slices with a sprinkle of
sugar and a single mint sprig on top. On first bite I knew it had biscuits in
it and it was made with dark chocolate. Ah, what joy!! It was not sweet as in
my teeth wanna do a tango kind!
evening and we were all set to attack the remaining places. The staff at Hyatt couldn’t
get over us declining food and only eating desserts.. lol..
go have some water or coffee while we devour these desserts…. Slupralicious… [now now, dont put dhristi on me I say!!]
lazing on a Sunday, not having to hurry or rush to make breakfast and then get
dressed to head off to office. But, alas, it wasn’t to be so. The Saturday evening
was spent at a friend’s house and we chilled till Sunday mid morning. We had
dosa for breakfast and spend a good few hours sorting out her stuff [she had
just moved to a different apartment]. Before we knew it, the clock had struck
12 and like Cinderella, I rushed out her door towards home. I had less than an
hour to get home, shower, get dressed and head over for Brunch. Damn, this is
so now how I had pictured it in my head when I got the invite.
some time chatting before we decided to explore the
dessert counter. There were a range of Mousse, cakes, and
caramel custard, I picked out the Blueberry cheesecake, another based
dessert with fresh fig on it, apple strudel and also tried the Fig halwa. The halwa was the best of
them all. I also enjoyed a spoon of the fresh cut fruits [heaven]. My friend on the other hand had taken quite a few other desserts- mango mousse, caramel custard, a chocolate dessert and a sandesh as well. We were
wondering where the Live DJ was. While
we were digging into our dessert, the Manager came over with a plate that had a
dessert and “Happy mothers’ day” on it. He mentioned this is what they were
serving special that day. Since the friend’s wife is a new mother, we dedicated
it to her. It was a Chocolate mousse sitting on a thin layer of cake, fresh
strawberry pieces and a white chocolate slice on top. Just as we dug into it, a
man came over and performed a few magic tricks. That added to the whole experience,
and we were wowed by his tricks!! Oh and a plate of Mutton biryani was served which my friend said tasted quite good..

say “Delhi 6”? C’mon, lets be honest, you thought of Abhishek Bachchan and
Sonam Kapoor or Masakkali right? So, now
when I add the word “food” to “Delhi 6”, what comes to your mind? Hmm, I like
that puzzled look. It tells me you are not very familiar with Delhi and its
areas. Well, if you were someone who has been to Delhi, or is a foodie you
would know that it refers to the food zone in Delhi- Chandni Chowk, the
paranthe wali gulley and the region around that is famous for the chaat and
other local treats.
The next in line was the Gucchi Pulao- Yes, Gucchi, the only Gucci I know is the fashion brand so when I heard it was a plant like Mushroom I was fascinated. It was served in a claypot and was light, fluffly and simply yumm. The Gucchi [morrel] were black flattish things that had a distinct flavour which you could taste in the pulao as well. I loved it.
of May. So, if you have been craving for some Delhi ka khanna, you know where
to head to~
then and my gramma & great gramma [dad’s mom and gramma] were also with
us.. It was Dec 1989 when Mom came to Chennai for her last trimester and I was
in Tirunvelveli with Dad and grammas.. It was probably the 2nd time
I was away from Mom, but this time I dint really miss her much.
was introduced to jevvarisi Kanji. My gramma used to make this for my great
gramma and I would taste a bit everyday, till one day I told her I shall have
the same for breakfast. From thereon, I was hooked. I loved the semi transparent
wobbly little round thing and the sweetness of the porridge. Gramma would add
very little milk to this.
Jevvarisi [only diff you add lots of milk]. Even now there are days when I suddenly
get a craving for this and go whip up a bowl of it and indulge.
things that I love about jevvarisi is that it is very light on the tummy and
such a feel good factor.
vada does seem too oily for my liking.
