Quick Drive – Honda City VX-MT

Honda is now back and how… nailing it dead on after the Brio, City and now the Amaze and Mobilio. But I went just sometime back to Crystal Honda to test drive the new City Diesel. I’ve been interested in this C Segment and was surprised to see the car is fairly loaded to the gills..

American Brew Fest at TJ’s Brew Works

I am starting to love food festivals and everyone seems to be doing something or the other these days. It’s a good change from the usual fare and offers an experience to the diners which can either be good or bad. Am glad to say that TJ’s Brew Works has come out with a winner here and my Pune Foodiez gang was invited for the same.

Soleil by La Plage – Sula Vineyards Nashik

Last Sunday I did something different – a road trip with my fellow foodies Tes and Husein for company. We started on an early morning journey towards Nashik on the beautiful Pune-Nashik Highway. We were excited to be invited for the launch of ‘Soleil’ by La Plage, the very popular restaurant from North Goa nestled inside the legendary Sula Vineyards, which has already made it’s mark by being a forerunner in promoting wine tourism to this little city besides producing some of the finest wines.

Up North, Bavdhan, Pune

Pune has a few spots which are known as “lovers points” where couples go in the evening either on a long drive or just to hangout with their friends. One such spot is the Chandni Chowk located in Bavdhan, cocooned outside the madness of Kothrud and has a few good cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from, in case you want to indulge in some. Situated right opposite the 24/7 Cafe Coffee Day is Up North…

Video – North Atlantic Skies

We love visualizations. Every day, between two and three thousand aircraft fly across the North Atlantic between Canada, the United States and Europe. Airspace across the North Atlantic is divided into six Oceanic Control Areas (or OCAs). These OCAs are controlled by Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) working at different locations in different Countries.

Cafe 1730 Beans and Booze

Koregaon Park is known for many things and one of them is great cafes and restaurants. Nestled in a quiet corner of a very green and scenic Lane 6 is this Cafe 1730. Now this place has been around for a few years now and has seen itself go through some transformations. Initially I would go here for a quick coffee or some work, relaxing and….

BluO Phoenix Market City

Last weekend Pune Foodiez gang was invited by BluO for a review. Now this is one place which has always impressed me.. but only in terms of their bowling lanes and the sports bar ambiance. It’s the biggest bowling alley in the city, well designed interiors with blue/LED mood lighting all over, lounge and restaurant type seating, private party rooms with Karaoke and a fully stocked bar as well. What I did not know until recently was they had a proper food menu as well and claim to be a fine-dining restaurant.
