Probably the best venue to host your child’s birthday party in Gurgaon

Our daughter’s birthday was a couple of weeks ago and for 2-3 months we had been agonizing on what to do for her birthday, where to host it, what events will be in it, what food, do we get a magician, or a clown, or a puppet show, or an events host… you know how it is if your kid’s birthday is coming up. Also, now that she is 5 years old, she had...

How well Uber works in Gurgaon and NCR

I wrote about Uber two years ago (see post) when it had just launched in NCR. I am happy that it is becoming better in terms of availability each day almost to the point that you can rely on it (as I frequently do). If you want to sign up to Uber, you can use this invitation link (https://www.uber.com/invite/uberisnice) to sign up. This will give you some free...

However, one thing has remained. My recommendation for the Best Ultrasound in Gurgaon remains the same: Dr. Girish Pandit. He is still the...

Or should I say, the best funky food in Gurgaon. Either way, the food at this place is really good. I am talking about Farzi Cafe at Cyberhub in Gurgaon. Even if you know nothing about molecular gastronomy (which this place applies to its dishes), you will still enjoy the sheer funkiness of the food presented at Farzi Cafe. Here, the food is not only about the taste...

Heritage Transport Museum in Gurgaon

Here’s an awesome way to spend a Saturday (or a Sunday, or any other day). Make a trip to the Heritage Transport Museum in Gurgaon. This place is pretty much a hidden treasure.

This place has the best cocktails in gurgaon

Or at least some of the best. I am talking about Cocktails and Dreams Speakeasy in Sector 15, Gurgaon. Absolutely, my favorite place in Gurgaon these days. The cocktails are great (in Gurgaon, the bars in Oberoi are probably the only ones which can keep up, but these guys are better). They know their cocktails well (not so common in Gurgaon or in India in general)....

Where to go for the best breakfast in Gurgaon if you like pancakes and eggs

It really is. Anyone I have ever recommended this place to has come back singing praises. I am talking about Di Ghent Cafe in Cross Point Mall near Galleria (link goes to the Zomato page for Di Ghent). If you like pancakes, waffles, eggs done in dozens of different ways, shakes, and great coffee for your breakfast then this is the place to go. They have wonderful...
