MetroZip – Best thing to have happened to Hinjawadi!

The Hinjawadi IT Park has been around for close to 13 years now and has scaled up to 3 phases over these years. It not only houses some of the world’s largest IT companies but has a large number of manufacturing units, massive residential townships, premier colleges and schools. With over 4-5 lakh people travelling…

Review – Syrakko (Pune)

When I was invited by Syrakko to try out their food and drinks, I really didn’t know what to expect. The name is quite unique and doesn’t really give away anything about the fine dine. Syrakko is located a floor below Sin Envy Pride and in the same building as Krustys and The Beer Cafe….

Review – Smiley House (Pune)

International cuisine in a non-fine dine setup is always special, even more so when a migrant sets up a kitchen to dish out the most authentic food of that region. Smiley House earned its stripes as the only authentic Vietnamese restaurant in Pune, run by a Vietnamese lady from Saigon. Smiley House is a very small…

Review – Flying Duck (Pune)

Very few places in Pune serve pork and even fewer serve the kind of pork preparations I like. So when I heard about Flying Duck and their famous Pork Chops, I was quick to add the restaurant to my wishlist. To be honest, my wishlist is quite long so Flying Duck actually went unnoticed until fate had…

DPRK News Service is Twitter’s Best Account!

Twitter has a lot of weirdly funny accounts that churn out trolls and memes all the time. In fact, some parody accounts have become so famous that people join Twitter, just to read their funny tweets. But what if I told you that the funniest account on twitter is not a parody, troll or a funny…

Pune finally gets its own Comic Con!

Pune has become home to many annual music festivals and conferences in the last few years. However, Comic Con has been eluding us since 2011. While the first Comic Con Express (smaller, travelling version) was held in Mumbai in 2009, Comic Con has become an annual convention in Delhi since 2011. Mumbai & Bengaluru has…

10 Pro-Tips for Food Instagrammers!

I feel Instagram has revolutionized the food industry more than the mobile photography industry. Taking pictures of food for memories was considered ‘overdoing it’ at one point but now, people go to specific restaurants only to click pictures and share them on Instagram. Instagramming food is pretty normal these days, however even with better cameras on phones,…

Review – Le Plaisir Patisserie & Bistro (Pune)

Most restaurants only satisfy your hunger while a very few satisfy your hunger along with your soul. I will start by saying Le Plaisir falls in the latter category and the only regret I have is not visiting the place earlier. Le Plaisir originally started as a small patisserie on Bhandarkar road. I had seen it several…

Review – Agent Jack’s Bar (Pune)

I would never write an entire blog post for a restaurant/bar I’ve walked out of but Agent Jack’s Bar, unfortunately, deserves it. It’s very rare to see that a new bar that launches with 2 outlets has absolutely no focus on the customers. Here’s a summary of what’s wrong with this place – I visited the…

My First Experience with Zoomcar

I’ve known how to drive a car for over 18 years now and have been driving (legally) for 15 years. I love driving cars and hence, prefer road trips over any other form of travel. Even though the road conditions in India have improved significantly over the last 10 years, the ratio of travel time…
