Somethings the Americans could learn from us, Indians

Bane of being a vegetarian … well almost

At the very outset, I am no sadhu baba. Unlike my wife who is a chaste vegetarian (sometimes driving me up the wall honestly with her food preferences) I am a person who treads the middle path.

Not Just Jazz by the Bay

Not Just Jazz by the Bay is the erstwhile Talk of the Town of yore. What  attracts me to this place is the menu. They have soup, salads and sandwiches for lunch and a buffet at it so you can pig out. The salads are amazing and the choice is worth it. Unlike Nirula’s PotContinue reading “Not Just Jazz by the Bay”
