The cafe will provide you taste of both good food & fashion. She has a boutique in the cafe where you can find beach wear and casual clothing. Love the hippie vibes and the Boho designs. Indulge in shopping and good food under one roof.

Laila Fathima is a sweetheart. Loves to cook and you will have a lovely time spending at her cafe. She often visited GOA for holidays and fell in love with the place like many of us. Her love for Goa was strong enough to make her leave the corporate career and she finally followed her passion and stared her cafe in GOA. In the beginning she started only home deliveries of Biriyanis and few Hyderabadi specialities. I met her then and now it’s so inspiring to see her in her own cafe.

She cooks her heart out everyday and serves flavourful dishes. Everyday is a different menu and they serve only lunch.

It is in the Anjuna Vagator road.

What we ate –

* Mutton Haleem – I tried it for the first time. It has a porridge consistency with mutton and cereals cooked together and then mashed. It’s a healthy & filling dish. Muslims prefer to include in their food menu while fasting to keep them going for the day.

* Mutton Biryani – Biryani was simple yet flavourful.

* Baghaare Baingan – This Hyderabadi dish stole my heart. Peanuts, coconut and different spices cooked to make a thick gravy and brinjal is cooked in that. I loved it. Very spicy and had a unique taste.

* Shahi Paneer – 👍🏼👌🏼

* Chole Masala – 👍🏼👌🏼

* Lachha Paratha – 👍🏼👌🏼

* BangolorianGhee Rice – 👍🏼👌🏼

STUDIO XO BAR

IMG_8114

My life is all about travelling and I am literally living out of a suitcase these days. Which I really enjoy. After a long gap of two and a half month I was back in Delhi. So, staying in Delhi without exploring new food joints is such a waste. So decided to check out few new cool places recently launched.

Studio Xo Bar  is the one I visited and instantly fell in love. As the name suggests its actually looks like a luxury studio, huge space with stunning interior. The bar area has superb space and I couldn’t resist but get few clicks for myself.

They have a live performance area which is also huge and very attractive. Enough space for everybody, no matter you are in the bar or sitting area or near the live performance area.

** SANA-DI-GE ** A Coastal Cuisine Delight

image17

It was a random plan to visit this place with one of my friend. We both share a common weakness which is for costal cuisine and sea food.

Sana-Di-Ge in Tulu refers to the brass lamp lit on auspicious occasions in the coastal belt of Karnataka. It is a coastal speciality fine dine restaurant with splendid ambiance and serving wide varieties of Coastal Cuisine.

The menu is eclectic blend of coastal cuisine, North Indian Cuisine and Chinese Cuisine.

My Love for this place is little personal as it took me back to my fond memories of years I stayed in Goa. Fresh Fish, Beaches and Sand, Coconut Curry, Local Market and their fresh produce. My friend from Mangalore who can’t stop talking about “Ghee Rice” and South Costal Cuisine. He made amazing dishes for few close friends and thats when I fell in love with costal cuisine.

At “Sana-Di-Ge”  I relived my past happy moments of costal cuisine and cherished each and every morsel. It is an absolute essential and a must try for food lovers..
