Food Review: 70 Degrees East

Written by GUEST AUTHOR on . Posted in Food, Restaurants

70 Degrees East Ahmedabad: Serves North Indian, Chinese and Fast Food Guest Author: Radhika Patel We Amdavadis are talented lot. I’ve heard the name of ‘70 Degrees East’ so many times, yet I could hardly find any mention on the virtual web. No Zomato reviews, nothing on Facebook, and yet everybody knew about it. That’s when I realised the power of ‘Amdavadi’ word of mouth; defying powers of the Internet world yet again. 70 Degrees East is clearly a child raised by word of mouth. It is situated in one of the less crowded New Thaltej area and hasn’t peaked at popularity, so it is a blessing for the impatient lot. The front hall has a huge Buddha statue, which is there just because. No, it does not go with the theme (if there is any), so we Read more [...]

Food Review: Wok on Fire

Written by GUEST AUTHOR on . Posted in Food, Restaurants

Wok on Fire Ahmedabad serves a lot of Asian cuisines (not just Chinese and Japanese, but Indonesian and Phillipines and Malaysian too) Guest Author: Radhika Patel ‘Wok on Fire’ is a famous Surat based Pan Asian restaurant ready to serve Amdavadi crowd. The amount of fancy publicity done by them had upped my expectations. The place, however, was small and cozy (a wise decision, really!) It was a red and black themed restaurant with less aesthetics and more functionality. The interiors were clean, well lit and welcoming. After an hour long wait on a Friday evening, we were tired but excited to order. They have pulled up a great job with the menu. It is extremely elaborate, but not frustrating. However, when a big group with extremely fussy people are in question, it is best to leave the order to the chef’s choice! Read more [...]
