We tasted all four desserts at @indebrewco's outlet in #Ballewadi #Pune last night and I was more than happy to discover how amazing their Ixcacao Ale Cake was! Made with an intense stout beer and served on top of a smooth crème anglaise, this one's a delightful experience, a deserving one to be shared. Next time you're guzzling a pint or two at Independence Brewing Co., don't forget to end your experience with this sinful #chocolate extravaganza! Happy hogging! #independencebrewingcompany #indebrewco #baner #puneinsta #punecity #punefoodie #punekar #punetimes #ale #cake #chocolatecake #thebigbhookad

After hearing so much about #Pune ki shaan @marathasamrat, I finally managed to try some food out there earlier today. I ordered their sea food #thali which comprised of #prawns fry, promfret curry, sukkat, hirvi chutney, option of 2 chapatis or a massive jowar bhakri that I opted for. At INR 580 (plus taxes) it might seem heavy on the pocket before you order it, but that big fat slice of fresh and juicy #surmai fry will leave you and your hungry tummy completely satisfied afterwards. I also recommend all of you to opt for their indrayani pulao instead of plain steamed rice towards the end of your meal. It has caramelized onions and the #pulao tastes like biryani. For those looking for an authentic Maharashtrian food experience in #Puna, must visit any of Maratha Samrat's three outlets at least once. You can choose as much or as little as you want from the à la carte menu too. You certainly won't be disappointed. Don't forget to order sol kadi!

The Nagold SuperMom Super Recipe contest was created by @hafele_india to celebrate different women from different walks of life, especially those who have an itch along with multitasking skills to innovate and create good food in the kitchen. The story began after they received over 1000 entries online, from which only 25 most unique recipes were selected to qualify for the next round by a few food bloggers, including yours truly me. The climb to the final 8 was steep but the winner of today's competition, Mrs. Nikita Barmecha (not in this picture), deserved to win with her unique recipe of hasselback potatoes. It was an honour to be a part of this journey and also to spend time with bloggers like @thefinelychopped, @amritaoflife, @foodofmumbai, @1teaspoonlove and more. Thanks, #hafeleindia! #supermomcontest #hafeleindia #nagoldappliances #cookingcompetition #mumbai #hafele #thebigbhookad

Filter kaapi at BLR airport deserves your attention and trial. 90% roasted coffee and 10% chicory but 100% satisfaction as @hatti_kaapi prepares it the traditional way with an authentic filter. Steaming hot milk is poured on a small or a large shot of #kaapi and it's available for INR 65 for a regular and INR 75 for a large glass. Add 10 rupees to make it strong / Mysuru kaapi. Opt for with or without sugar and #chicory as per your preference. Chicory coffee is a beverage made using the roots of the chicory plant, which are usually roasted, ground and mixed with coffee before brewing. Oh how I wish that I could have this on every Monday morning! #BhookadRecommends you to try it during your next visit to #Bengaluru! Happy sipping! #filterkaapi #filtercoffee #southindianfiltercoffee #hattikaapi #bangalore #roastedcoffee #coffee #mondaymorning #filterkaapi☕️ #mysurucoffee #thebigbhookad

Very few hospitality brands understand the importance of providing an optimum room-dining experience to their guests who stay at their properties. Even fewer understand the obviousness of having a few satisfying vegetarian options on their menu and I was impressed to see a generously big veg #burger, after ordering from the all day in room dining menu at @theden_bengaluru. A piping hot patty made with potatoes, carrots, french beans, zucchini and herbs; plus lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and avocado, squeezed between a soft and fluffy bun. The closed trolley with drawers kept our food warm and the addition of a vase with a flower in it, on top of that table, was a good finishing touch by their kitchen crew. #BhookadRecommends all of you to try their #burgers and also consider staying at The Den in Bangalore during your next visit, especially if you need to be at or anywhere around Whitefield. Happy hogging! #bangalore #bengaluru #veg #vegetarian #vegburger #thedenbangalore #sunday #thebigbhookad

It's always an honour to watch Lucky Ali live in action, especially when the opportunity involves a pleasant surprise of watching him launch his new album as well. This time he collaborated with an Israeli band and the album is called LemAlla, which in his words, means transitioning to a higher understanding of life and also being more at peace within. Thank you for inviting us to experience magic on stage @theden_bangalore, thanks also for including us in the launch celebration of Layla - your new rooftop lounge. What a memorable night it was in #Bangalore! #thedenbangalore #whitefield #whitefieldbangalore #luckyali #luckyalilive #bengaluru 📸@thepicspective

Here's a short poem I wrote during the production of #LivingWithDiabetes a few months ago in association with @abbottglobal. It's called "Mere Khoon Mein Hai" and I hope you guys like it. Click on the link in my bio to watch the video. #Abbott

I'm back to #Pune for a week and back to enjoying an early dinner at my favourite food truck with my friends out here. I could've (and definitely would've) gobbled up two or more of these delicious Pulled Pork burgers when I was younger but sharing this (and their signature nachos) with friends was a great experience as well. For those who live in #Puna or visit the city often, #BhookadRecommends you to try some food at or from this epic #foodtruck at least once before 2018 ends. Add extra #bacon to your #burger and request it to be extra crispy for extra awesomeness! For those who like or prefer chicken, I recommend you to try their chicken ghee roast burger. Happy hogging! #ldoradopune #punekar #puneblogger #punefoodie #puneinsta #punecity #punetimes #pulledpork #porkburger #thebigbhookad

#AD | Most of my best friends and immediate family members know about this already but it's probably not a coincidence that I'll share this story publicly, exactly 3 years after Dad passed away. There’s a notion that being diagnosed with diabetes completely changes your life or highly limits your food choices. Here’s my take on #LivingWithDiabetes, in collaboration with @abbottglobal. I hope that it helps you, your loved ones or whoever you know is diagnosed with diabetes. I hope after watching this video, managing the condition is a little, just a little better. You can find the link in my bio. | #Abbott

Some English #breakfast at @godoolally is satisfying at any time or day during the week but most satisfying after an exhausting camping trip with an intolerable sort of urge for eggs and bacon, especially well done crispy #bacon! Ask for eggs as you usually like to have them and order an extra portion of baked beans, chicken sausage, toasts or bacon. Simple but satisfying, honest and hearty too, err without so much bacon of course, unless you're splitting this dish with an extra side with your partner or friend. Happy hogging all day breakfast at all outlets of Doolally! #englishbreakfast #breakfastofchamps #breakfastofchampions #doolally #doolallymumbai #doolallytaproom #breakfastclub #eggs #toast #bakedbeans #breakfast #thebigbhookad

It's always a pleasure to have brunch at Baan Tao while enjoying a staycation at @hyattpune, especially when chefs put in extra effort to serve larger groups of families and friends on a public holiday. This #TomYum soup has to be one of the most delicious, refreshing and satisfactory I've ever had in my life so far! Non-vegetarians can add prawns or chicken to this soup. For those looking for an extensive spread of Asian delicacies under one roof in #Pune, including live stir-fry + dim sum + satay counters, you must read up on Baan Tao and visit it soon. Happy holidaying and happy brunching! #tomyumsoup #asianbuffet #brunch #asianfood #punefoodie #punediaries #punerestaurants #tomyam #thebigbhookad

Samarachi Kodi, what a genius idea to serve poached #eggs during #breakfast hours but in leftover prawn gravy, served with whole wheat poee - a #Goan staple reinvented beautifully by the crew at @lemeridiengoa! Check out a new photo-album on my Facebook page! Happy hogging! #poachedeggs #goanfood #samarachikodi #eggstoorder #prawncurry #breakfastofchamps #breakfastofchampions #thebigbhookad
