A bit of a disappointment: Aer Bar @ Four Seasons Mumbai (1. December 2017)

While the Aer Bar at the Four Seasons Mumbai generally looks super promising, it was quite a disappointment. When I arrived the place was basically half empty. Or even more – something definitely unexpected. Additionally, it wasn’t really atmospheric as the furniture up there is all plastic and it just really isn’t that appealing. The […]

A great substitute for no executive lounge: Luna Bar @ The St. Regis Mumbai (1. December 2017)

A great substitute for no executive lounge: Luna Bar @ The St. Regis Mumbai (1. December 2017)

While The St. Regis Mumbai doesn’t have an executive lounge, it offers a ‘happy hour’ from 6pm to 8pm. And while at first I was a bit disappointed, I was even more positively surprised after having been there. Besides the drinks, which includes alcoholic drinks, you can also a variety of complimentary dishes during happy […]

The perfect place for sundown: Dome @ The Intercontinental Mumbai (1. December 2017)

You can definitely say that enjoying the sundowner on the rooftop of the Intercontinental Mumbai isn’t really India. And it isn’t! But, it is still absolutely worth visiting, respectively to enjoy the sundowner there. The location offers you the perfect view over the bay. And the “Watermelon Bramble” (1’250 INR) is a great drink – […]

My first real Indian food – paneer tikka: Leopold Café (1. December 2017)

The Leopold Café is a ‘traditional’ café. Well, to be more precise, it is a place which was the location of a terrorist attack a couple of years back and is, therefore, apparently, quite famous. So, well, given I was only for 40 hours in India, I decided to pay it a visit and to […]

Afternoon tea with a view to the Gateway of India: Sea Lounge @ Taj Mahal Palace Hotel (1. December 2017)

When you’re close to the Gateway of India, you should definitely pay the Taj Mahal Palace a visit, or more specifically the Sea Lounge on the first floor. If you manage to get a seat by the window you have a nice view onto the Gateway plus the sea and all the boats which go […]

Great fresh seafood cooking station: Restaurant Baharat @ Le Méridien City Centre Bahrain (30. November 2017)

The seafood night (24.000 BHD per person) offers quite a rich buffet at the Restaurant Baharat at the Le Méridien City Centre Bahrain – you get everything you need and want from a variety of salads (with somehow very thick salad sauces) … … to all kinds of seafood … … including sushi … … […]

Not really Italian food but super tasty: Restaurant Fatto (30. November 2017)

Not really Italian food but super tasty: Restaurant Fatto (30. November 2017)

As a little greeting from the kitchen you get “focaccia with olive spread” which is nice – however, the focaccia lacks crispiness from my point of view. As a starter, we went for the “calamari fritti” (4.300 BHD) which were served with chili and I must say that I liked those quite a lot as […]

Surprisingly decent Turkish food but nothing like the real thing: Restaurant Köşebaşı (29. November 2017)

Surprisingly decent Turkish food but nothing like the real thing: Restaurant Köşebaşı (29. November 2017)

I guess you shouldn’t eat Turkish outside of Turkey as it is just not the same. As a selection of starters we went for “toros salad (finely chopped tomatoes, rocket, parsley, green onion and mint, mixed with sumac and pomegranate sauce)” (2.100 BHD), “humus (home-made humus drizzled with chili oil)” (2.000 BHD) and “soslu patlican […]
