    Things on my desk 

    We have shifted from our original location to a newer and uninhabited island of a place. Anyways, wanted to write down what is on my desk at the moment.

    1. A photograph of a girl jumping on a beach from Chromasia – with Floyd’s “Learning to Fly” on it
    2. ClocksColdplay
    3. Calvin & Hobbes
    4. Snap of STAR-PLUS at Indijoes (a lovely restaurant on Airport Road) in Bangalore just before the Rehman concert (which is another amazing story)
    5. Something there is that doesn’t love a wall – Akanksha
    6. Hugh Macleod
    7. IfRudyard Kipling
    8. DaffodilsWilliam Wordsworth
    9. Mending WallRobert Frost
    10. Sabka Katega – bodhiTree

    Other than these I have a laminated copy of a Charles Swindoll saying and some work related stuff.

    Piccadelhi – A review 

    I am out of Delhi next weekend, and Bharathi will be out before the one after it, so I thought it would be a good idea to have lunch with her today. Anyways, picked her up from NII and drove to Connaught where, according to her, the Nirula’s Chinese Room had reopened without the name. Reached there, only to find out that it would only open back in mid-April. Since she was in a mood for Chinese food, we headed over to Bercos. Disappointment hit us again as the waiting queue was more than an hour long. So we had to think of a place again. Finally, we settled for Piccadelhi, a restaurant I had heard about and wanted to check out. So there we were, in front of Piccadelhi, hoping that it would not be overtly expensive.

    The first thing Bharathi said after we entered the restaurant was Harry Potter. This place seems small from outside but is actually very huge. Its like the platform nine and a half. It is spacious and the ambiance was to my liking except that some people were very noisy. The whole place has a very nice and laid back feel to it. There was actually live music, the choice of music being good, while the way it was sung wasn’t all that great. Though I have said that the place is slightly on the noisy side, you can talk without having to shout out. 8 out of 10 for the place.

    We got a seat in 10 mins and a couple of minutes later were served with the menu. We placed our order for the starters and the soup. The soup quantity was less, and the quality though decent left me thinking of Bercos. However, the fried corn starter was awesome and the quantity was good. The staff here was very polite and did not bother you other than an occasional “Do you want something?”. We then ordered for the main course which came up pretty fast and was nice though Bharathi felt it was little bland. We finished off with me ordering a black forest pastry and Bharathi a bitter chocolate one.

    I would rate the restaurant 7.5 on 10 and definitely recommend it to anyone. A veg meal for a couple of people would cost you around 550-650 bucks without drinks while I am guessing a non-veg meal would add another couple of hundred to the total.

    Bernardos – Goan food paradise!! 

    Shivam Vij wrote a post a couple of days back about some fine Goan restaurant – Barnardos, right in our backyard in Gurgaon. So here comes the weekend and a gang of us start to hunt it down and try the food there.

    The restaurant is hidden in some corner of DLF Galleria and geting to it was not very straight forward. But then all of us (10 in all, including Ojas, Shailesh, Undi and Pappu) made it to the restaurant finally. The first thing you notice here is the size of the place. It is small and donned with black and white photographs (of his family I am guessing).

    Now comes the funny part. Though the non-veg options are plenty, three veggies (Neha, Madhukar and me) placed our order in this fashion, “Aapke paas jo bhi veg hai sab le aao.” He got four dishes in all including the starter.

    The service is slow and at times frustrating. But, once the food arrives, you forget the cribbing and start enjoying. Fine food. One brinjal curry, an Okri curry and one coconut mix veg dry subzi, served with bread/rice, in all it made for a yum evening. Topped it of with (what I am guessing to be home made) chocolate cake and ice cream 🙂

    Now only if Sudeep/Rahul/Thax come to Delhi, I would take them here. Rahul is coming here on 24th. I hope we go there then.

      this restaurant used to be in chitranjan park. I remember going 3-4 years ago when I was in Delhi. Good as I remember and always packed. It was actually a house in the colony and not in a commercial area.

      I know – Shivam (above) told me that. Anyways, it still is not a very high profile place, but still serves the same awesome food.
