Absolutely delicious Northern Indian cuisine: Restaurant Dum Pukht @ ITC Maurya, A Luxury Collection Hotel, New Delhi (4. November 2019)

The Dum Pukht was recommended in many tourist guides and I was not aware that it was in the same hotel I was staying at until the day before. The restaurant serves traditional Northern Indian cuisine which started again with some crispy breads, onions, and a variety of sauces which were perfect to start especially […]

Eating with your bare hands – interesting experience: Restaurant Bukhara @ ITC Maurya, A Luxury Collection Hotel, New Delhi (3. November 2019)

The restaurant Bukhara is apparently one of the best restaurants in New Delhi and it was absolutely fully booked that night. Given I had made a mistake with my bookings I had erroneously booked a table for Monday instead of Sunday evening and when requesting to move it accordingly to Sunday on short notice, they […]

Decent low-cost lunch buffet: Restaurant Mughal Pavillion @ ITC Mughal, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Agra (3. November 2019)

Given I was rather skeptical in trying out a local restaurant (due to being afraid of having major stomach issues afterwards), the guide brought us to their sister hotel in Agra, the ITC Mughal where they offer a “brunch buffet incl. soft beverages” (1’999 INR) with quite an extensive buffet ranging from all kinds of […]

Asian restaurant standards aren’t the same – dining at No. 17 of Asia: Restaurant Indian Accent (2. Nocember 2019)

I was looking forward at dining at number 17 of the world and ended up wondering how the “Indian Accent” is better than “The Clove Club” (which is no. 27 and I had just had lunch at two days earlier in London) until I figured that the “Indian Accent” was number 17 of Asia and […]

Good First class service with a local touch: SWISS First LX146 ZRH – DEL (1. November 2019)

Good First class service with a local touch: SWISS First LX146 ZRH – DEL (1. November 2019)

When traveling in SWISS First you are ensured to have a good wine selection. I started my flight with a “Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Kiedrich Gräfenberg, 2017” by Robert Weil from Rheingau which was a perfect start into the flight. Once you were seated, you were served a “parsley créme fraîche with bread sticks” which was […]

Lovely place with healthy food offering in Bandra: Pali Village Café (2. December 2017)

Lovely place with healthy food offering in Bandra: Pali Village Café (2. December 2017)

The Pali Village Café is probably the closest to a real local Indian food experience I’ve had as I just didn’t dare to try the actual streetfood in the 40 hours I spent in Mumbai. I went for the “prawns in lemon coriander broth, chilly flakes” (445 INR) as a starter which were way better […]

The biggest disappointment in clubbing in a long time: XXO @ The St. Regis Mumbai (1. December 2017)

The biggest disappointment in clubbing in a long time: XXO @ The St. Regis Mumbai (1. December 2017)

Disappointment of the year! The XXO is located on the 37th floor of the St. Regis and is, apparently, considered a very fancy and to be place. Frankly, I have no clue why. Okay, fair enough, the place looks nice if you look at the picture – but that’s really it. The selection of cocktails […]
