Written by Nikita Dudani on . Posted in Food, Khau Galli

Jay Bhavani Vada Pav Centre in Ahmedabad “When hunger strikes, tempting food comes to your mind” – this has always been true for me. Whenever, hunger gets me completely, I get visions ranging from exotic meals to roadside lowries. This time, my quest to satisfy my hunger led me to Jay Bhavani Vadapav, Shahibaug.  Situated on a busy corner of the main road, this shop has nothing grand about it. A small space; with few chairs and lot of tummy filler varieties. The menu was scribbled on a huge board and had various items like pav bhaji, sandwich, dosa, uttappa, vadapav, dabeli and many more.

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.

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 [...]
