Dosa pillars with overflowing cheese

No seats to sit, no roof to stand under, the yells of people, the honks of cars, the overwhelming traffic noise, and this little stall offers one of Bombay’s most viral food plates. A warm dosa with vegetable stuffing that is topped with a lot of cheese:

Indian-Mexican Mexican

At Tiqri – Taj Santacruz in Mumbai. Overall good food and terrible service. The Mexican Platter: Mini tacos: These were cute and were 1-bite fun snack Chips and salsa, sour cream, guac: Meh Mexican roll: The small triangular things between the tacos and the chips — another 1-bite and done snack which were fun Habanero…

Marriott had the stand-out food during Dubai trip

2018 NYE was skydiving in Dubai. Coupled with a desert safari, lights show at the Burj, and walking around theme parks. Food wasn’t exactly on the 3 day 2 night trip agenda. I did not expect Marriott’s Lapita Resorts to have a lavish breakfast spread (like Marriotts in India), so I was pleasantly surprised that…

Indian Accent pt. 2

Italian in a scone-ish pocket something

I stumbled across Trapizzino as a new fast casual Italian restaurant and was excited to try it. Italian is a safe bet for me as a vegetarian. And with Trapizzino’s unique serving in a fresh bread scone-like pocket, it had to be tried. Tried, I did. Not going back. The food just tasted bad.

How-to: Quick snack hummus

It took me a while to like hummus and once I started liking it, I can’t have enough of it. I had some cans of garbanzo beans and thought of making it. Here’s the result:

Colorful plate of tacos

Colorful looking plate of passable vegetarian Mexican tacos. Fun sauces though! Restaurant: Óxido

Vegan Lettuce Tacos

Pomegranate Cafe in Phoenix Arizona. Vegan restaurant which was surprisingly fun!  But whatever the main mix was in these lettuce tacos was weird.
