Fajita Fiesta at Chili’s, Quest Mall !

Exploring Cuisines

​Chili’s isn’t a new name for us. With its inception in Kolkata, this place had always been in the hype, much due to the fact that it stands undoubtedly as the best restaurant in Kolkata serving Tex-Mex food. Their tripple dipper, burgers, fajitas, baby back ribs, blackened fish and everything else had been very famous among all of us.

The first outlet of Chili’s was at Quest Mall, which is my personal favourite. So, it was double the happiness on getting an invitation for a bloggers meet for their ongoing ‘Fajita Fiesta’ at Quest Mall. Now, I’m quite sure many of haven’t tasted or even known of a fajita before. A fajita is a part of Tex-Mex cuisine, in which grilled pieces of meat are served on a tortilla bread. This is one of the popular dishes in American casual dining restaurants but in Kolkata the only restaurant that serves…

Yes, at a glance, this villa does look very beautiful – and don’t get me wrong, it is. But when a place costs $600 USD per night, looking good is just not enough. The devil is in the details with this place, and that is where it really let us down.

Firstly, one of the appeals of a stay at Javana was the fact that it offered a private hot tub!

Turns out that this ‘hot tub’ was a total joke. With a tiny tap like you would expect to find in a bathroom sink and water that never got warmer…

#TRAVEL China: The Best of Beijing

As the capital of China, Beijing seems to have it all—history, art, culture, entertainment, innovation. While I’ve been a few times, I was always just passing through or filing paperwork somewhere.

At long last, my most recent trip through the city gave me a few days to actually experience the wonders it has to offer and I was determined to fit into 3 days as much as humanly possible:

Day One: The Great Wall

After arriving late at night on a long-haul train, I snagged a few hours sleep and immediately took off for the Great Wall. Having been to the tourist hotspots of Badaling and Mutianyu in the past and battling the crowds of locals, I finally had the time for a proper Great Wall experience. Many hostels and tour groups offer transport to more remote sections of the wall that are totally worth it. This was by far…
