The Pepper Mill is a newly opened gem at Bandra. It’s has a lovely colourful decor and loads of seating available. They’re known for playing really good music. We interacted with a Chef Parag who recommended us a variety of dishes prepared by him. We left the choices on him and boy were we left surprised. The staff here is really helpful too.
Breads and dips platter
The pepper mill prepares in house a variety of breads like Lavash, Focassia, Cross Buns and Breadstick. They served it with 8 different kind of dips including hummus, guacamole, peri peri mayo and a lot more. We truly enjoyed gorging on this platter. It’s a good choice for a date as it pairs so well with drinks and is fun to eat too.
A kind of dish best eaten when hot. Mind you…

Topping the list is Whiskey Tavern. Located at 79 Baxter St. (between Walker and White Streets) in Chinatown, it’s the highest-rated whiskey bar in New York City, boasting 4.5 stars out of 725 reviews on Yelp. Whiskey Tavern’s expansive menus offers glasses and flights of bourbon, rye and scotch, classic and specialty cocktails, beer, cider, wine and more, on top of bar snacks and full meals. The tavern also has sister whiskey bars on the Lower East Side and Brooklyn, as well as a curated liquor store in Brooklyn that sells more than 100 different whiskies.

Next up is Flatbush’s Wheated, situated at 905 Church Ave. (between Coney Island Avenue and 10th Street). With 4.5 stars out of 294 reviews on Yelp, the whiskey and cocktail bar, which offers pizza and more, has proven to be a local favorite. While there, look for Whiskey Wednesday specials that highlight a different variety each week.
Singing its praise, Yelper Dana M. recently wrote, “The cocktails are crafted to perfection. The whiskey selection is unlike anything else. If you like bourbon, you’re especially lucky here.”
3. Caledonia Bar.

Yorkville’s Caledonia Bar, located at 1609 Second Ave. (between 83rd and 84th Streets), is another top choice, with Yelpers giving the whiskey bar and Scottish pub 4.5 stars out of 227 reviews. The small joint bills itself as “the world’s least pretentious whiskey bar.” On the menu, expect glasses and flights of the bar’s extensive selection, as well as cocktails, beer, wine and small plates.
4. Sanford Astoria.

Sanfords Astoria, a whiskey bar and New American spot in Astoria, is another go-to, with four stars out of 661 Yelp reviews. Head over to 30-13 Broadway for tasting session over an upscale brunch, lunch or dinner.
Offering the restaurant five stars, Yelper Christy Y. recently said, “The wall of whiskeys is breathtaking. It transforms the entire restaurant’s vibe into an old speakeasy-esque type of place.”

Over in Flatiron, check out Maysville, which has earned four stars out of 523 reviews on Yelp. You can find the American whiskey bar and restaurant at 17 W. 26th St. (between Broadway and 6th Avenue).

Maysville regularly hosts whiskey tastings, classes and other events, and features The Early Bourbon deal, offering half-priced whiskies, as well as cocktails, beer and wine by the glass from noon-6 p.m. daily.

It’s that time of the year again!!! The 14th Belfast Continental Christmas Market……and I’m really excited!!!! it’s in its usual home, Belfast City Hall. Had a wonder around today and the buzz was amazing. Lots of stalls, food from all around Europe and beyond, stuff for kids to do, Santa’s Grotto and gift stalls as well as confectioners and pastries and drinks!!!! Had my Kangaroo burger going to give the Yorkshire pudding a go!!! What will you have?
Here since 1956, Gaylord is a legacy. Situated at Churchgate, this restaurant severs North Indian and Continental dishes. It’s bakery section is known for retaining its age old flavours.
The decor of the restaurant will you a royal vintage vibe.
Chili Cheese Toast-
Bite sized sandwiches of cheese with finely chopped chillies in between. It tasted good but for the price the quantity was very little.
Kulhar ki Tangdi
Chicken drumsticks marinated and cooked in Bhatti masala. The chicken was tender and flavourful, but upon taking a few bites, you’ll find it extremely dry. The presentation of the dish is lovely, each drumstick is served in an individual pot where masala and salad is added. Again for the price we think only 4 drumsticks are too less.
For main course we opted for:

Halloween has just finished and it’s straight into Christmas!!!! I attended the Belfast Musgrave Marketplace Christmas Party on the 1st November where Christmas has just begun!!
The warehouse has all one needs when it comes to food, groceries, confection, drinks and snacks and lots more.
There is a very good and well stocked Christmas shop and my two girls were already decorating the house!!!
We were well plied with canapés of the savoury and sweet kind and we especially liked the salted caramel hot chocolates (Santa please make a note!!).
I saw a couple of innovations worth mentioning. The first was a wide range of biodegradable cutlery, containers and straws which were pretty impressive. Also there was a wonderful spiced gammon which can boiled and/or ovened and which looked and tasted great.
I think I will make a trip back to do my Christmas shopping….without any distractions!!
My husband loves to make a borscht (sour soup), any kind of it. Vegetable or meat, as long it is sour is the best. This summer he made a boletus borscht. It was wonderful. I went foraging mushrooms and he did the borscht. I made photos at the end and now I am sharing his recipe with all of you.
He made borscht the before our wedding too. Imagine spending the “guys” party with his cousin, me and my best friend.
We had a great night.
This mushrooms borsch could be made also with any king of mushrooms. He made it lots of times with different wild mushrooms. Hi took the recipe from the book of written after the author “Radu Anton Roman” traveled around the country and learnt traditional recipes from our villages.
- 1 root parsnip
- 1 root celery
- 2 onions
- 500 ml meat broth
