Food Review – Chocolate Room

Written by Nikita Dudani on . Posted in Food, Restaurants

Kitkat Shake| Photo © Nikita Dudani The Chocolate room has always been my favorite place to study, read, discuss or gossip. What can be more beautiful than loving chocolate and availing its various forms at a single place! Be it shakes, coffee, pancakes or any other varieties, chocolate room has it all. This time I choose the branch at Bodakdev. Being recent though not alien, I choose it to meet my friend who was leaving for Dubai. On entering, I was happy to see it empty with just one table filled at that moment. It was a small space after all – enough for 4 tables; i.e. 16-18 people at one time. We sat a corner sofa near the window; facing the roadside. The ambiance was simple and the staff accumulated 3-4 persons only. Read more [...]

Ahmedabad Traffic Police and Centre for Green Mobility launch Right Steps Programme

Written by Hemal Mehta on . Posted in GENERAL, Social

A major improvement is observed in the queue behavior and lane discipline at Vijay Cross Roads "If you can drive in Ahmedabad, you can drive anywhere in the world!" - I have been told this not once but a few thousand times, not as a compliment for my driving skills but as a taunt for the lack of driving discipline we as a community have in Ahmedabad. Everyday when I am driving on the wonderful roads in Ahmedabad, I see driving etiquette crimes committed by far too many people. I cringe and at times commit the same mistakes too! Nudging pedestrians, tailgating, double parking, leaving high beams on, honking, not using indicators - just a few crimes wherein we have been both the victim and villain as well. Enough complaining... is there anyone taking any action to change this situation? Read more [...]

Food Review: Incasa Restaurant

Written by Nikita Dudani on . Posted in Food, Restaurants

Pizza Spoon | Photo © Nikita Dudani Incasa have been on my wish list for a long time. So, finally on a family get-together and birthday party, I along with my family headed to Incasa. The first thing I noticed while parking was an amazing interior and good light that captured you at the very first glance. As we climbed up the stairs, I was slightly surprised to see lights as they were yellow. Not that, I do not like yellow but giving to the ambiance created and the space layout, the lights were looking odd. Yet, when I came to reason behind it – my point of view completely changed. The interiors were done according to the theme, ‘illusion’, which makes it, quiet perfect and it solved my mystery too. Moving on to food, Read more [...]
