Restaurant Review: Karma Kismet opens in GK II

Image
For me great Indian food resonates with Awadhi cuisine and that's what got me interested in trying out this new place. Located in the posh area of GK II, I loved the place right from the start.


I went there for lunch with a group of friends. I started with a special kind of tomato soup. The hot soup felt therapeutic to my sore throat.
Then for veg appetisers I had a special dish which I never tasted before. It was shatvari ka tikka which was made mainly of asparagus and served with avocado dip. I also had paneer tikka which was very tender and flavourful.

For non veg starters, I had kala murgh tikka. The most special part of this dish is that I had a quail egg which was soft boiled and extremely delicious. The chicken tikka pieces were black because of activated charcoal and extremely flavourful.

Outskirts of Qutab Minar

When you plan to visit the Qutab Minar but you get late, then what do you do?  Did you know that Qutab Minar closes at 5 Pm and then again reopens at 6? Well I did not! I was unlucky enough to reach there at that window period.
So what did I do? I explored the other ruins in its vicinity! Thankfully, there is no dearth of monuments in Delhi!



Coming to the outfit, what's a better way to dress up on a chilly winter evening? A warm coat and a polo neck tee! This outfit is from Zaful.com Zaful.com Blazer: Zaful.com Tee: Zaful.com Sunnies: Fastrack

The Lalit, Jaipur

Who is not fond of luxury? Well I am one person who works hard and loves to party harder to the core! So I love to indulge in luxury whenever I get to. After long hours at the hospital for weeks, whenever I take a break, I make sure that every moment of my relax time is well spent. So its a five star hotel stay for me whenever possible. I don't drink neither I smoke. So I believe that I can afford pampering myself and my family once in a while. That is why I earn! I won't say that I can afford a five star every place I go (we are frequent travelers). But whenever we stay in a luxury property, my wife keeps on raving for months! Last year we had an incredible stay in The Lalit Jaipur and it was one memorable experience! Partly because the stay was so gorgeous and partly because it was the first five star stay for our then one and half year old daughter. The Lalit Jaipur is pretty close to the airport. Having said that its situated in a peaceful area, away from the hustle bustle …
