Gondhoraj Chicken

What do you do when the cook is on sick leave? Head to the kitchen and brush up the rusting culinary skills. Experiment to your heart’s will and then devour the catastrophe ūüôā . Of the many things that I miss in Bangalore, Gondharaj Lebu is one of them. But luckily we have managed to…

Chicken Dak Bungalow

Satyajit Ray’s movie “Aranyer Dinratri”¬†probably introduced me to what is known as “Dak Bunglow”.The story of four friends making an¬†unplanned escape from their complex¬†city lives into¬†to the serenity of jungles.

Found it pretty expensive and not worth the money for the taste (blame the typical dedicated Bengali taste buds). Well, it’s worth spending for good quality Ilish or sandesh… but silly burgers, NEVER !! But, that doesn’t…
