The Beer Cafe – Khar


A chain that for some reason or other eluded a visit since the time they’ve opened in Bombay. And Chaitanya has been promising to take me and Sudarshan there for a long time.  Meeting a colleague, finally managed to check this place out. At 7.15 pm it was quite empty with just a table occupied. Small and cosy with music…

The veg sliders were pretty good and worth a shot.  Over all a good…

Feminism Kal, Aaj aur Kal


One definition defines Feminism as ‘the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of equality – of the sexes’. or as my daughter defined it to me during one of my rants ‘Dad, Feminism is about equality and not male bashing. It’s different’  What is different? And no we are not talking Maggi Ketchup here.  I am the last person…

Wow Popcorn


A surprise delivery sent for trial and tasting. Personalised Tag. So obviously tasted better. Jokes apart, I had heard of them and my daughter had tried out a couple of places. But Bandra for me is like an outing.  The masala was quite good and crisp. Just the thing to go with your drinks and evening party – healthy starters…
