​Caliente: No Alcohol, Just Chili

Yep, you read it right. This Swedsih drink, which will be available this week in leading modern retail outlets in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, has chili, which releases endorphins in the body. Thus, it makes you happy or creates feeling of happiness just like alcohol.

Blueberry Lemongrass Chili transpa

The flavors are mix of fruits and herbs. Not too sweet. Fresh fruit flavor hits the taste buds first and the delicate herb flavor is the aftertaste, which perfectly pairs with the food made with similar herb. Voila ! so for example in one of the flavours we use Bluberry and Lemongrass, so blueberry is the first taste you feel on the tongue and at the after taste is that of Lemongrass. Now with lemongrass taste in the mouth pairs with the food which has lemongrass in it like, Thai, Vietnamese, etc. Similarly other flavour is lime ginger so the after taste if ginger in the mouth pairs with Indian, Chinese, Sushi etc.

CHILI, the body’s favorite drug: Caliente is the first bottled non-alcoholic drink giving you a rush. Because we’ve added chili that, similar to alcohol, activates the reward center in the brain, releasing endorphins and feelings of happiness. And as an added plus, chili helps to bring out other flavors, which means we can keep the sugar content low and still get drinks with great character.

This drink is already creating a buzz in Denmark and Norway.

Cafe Universal Since 1921

It was not a hidden gem. Quite popular among foreign visitors and locals alike. Located in South Mumbai, Cafe Universal has been serving since 1923. However, I found this place out of the blue and liked this cafe instantly. The exterior may not be flashy, but the interior of the cafe is quite soothing. You can find their whole menu here. I enjoyed my quiet moments at the cafe with my pomegranate juice 🙂

Ghungroo – The Sounds of Yore: Delhi’s First Dinner Theatre

Delhi, the capital of India, is a unique city with rich heritage and culture. Also known as the heart of India, it is home to people from all over the country and therefore, the culture of all the states of India can been seen here.

Recently, I got an invitation by Rudra Experiences Pvt Ltd to attend Delhi’s first Dinner Theatre – ‘Ghungroo – The Sounds of Yore’.

The artists, through their dance performances, narrated Delhi’s past glory and took the audience to the bygone days.
Starting from the first documented ruler of Delhi, Prithwi Raj Chauhan, tracing the journey of Bhakti Movement through Sufism, followed by stylised form of Kathak for the Mughal Courts, Tarana, ending in Bollywood, it showcases the history and spirit of Delhi, through dance, all in an hour’s time.

The chefs used traditional recipes, researched over centuries, tested in the Royal Kitchens, slow cooked, delicately spiced, with subtle aromas and served the way it was meant to be: straight from fire.

I had some very delicious food in this four-storey wooden building. When I reached this place, construction was underway and the owner of the restaurant told me that he was planning to extend this place.

Delicious food and a pleasant view of Labuan Bajo harbour, it is one of the best places in the area to relax and have good time. Fish, crab, lobster, squid, octopus – the restaurant provides plenty of options for seafood lovers. I tried several dishes, including baby octopus and liked them instantly.

When I Felt Hungry In Romania

And my Romania journey continues. Before a short trip to Lake Sfânta Ana, I told my good friend Lajos Berde that I am feeling hungry. And he promised to take me to a good restaurant 🙂  And he fulfilled his promise. 🙂 Welcome to Szekler Rest House  !

Situated at Băile Tușnad, a town famous for its spas and mineral waters therapies, the Rest House is basically a Hungarian rest house-cum-restaurant.

Exploring Romanian Foods

During my short stay in Brasov, I got a chance to explore authentic Romanian cuisine. However, I forgot to click images of some dishes. 🙂

A trip to Romania is incomplete without having a Chorba. I really liked it. You must try it. And one restaurant I will recommend you to visit – Sergiana. (Brasov) I really liked everything about the restaurant – ambiance, food and interior.

Have you ever tried authentic Romanian cuisine ?
