Restaurant Review : Smokey’s BBQ & Grill, Cyber Hub, Gurgaon – 5/5 Star

14

Two things I always crave for.. Good Food & Good Friends, and when one of my friend called me on one fine Sunday for lunch at Smokey’s BBQ and Grill for me it was hard to say no.

Although I am a pure vegetarian and having some apprehensions about the place famous for its meaty dishes but some how my friend convinced me that there are ample options available for the vegetarians.

Surrounded by big names, this place is really Amazing with rustic decor and lounge-cum-dinning seating style. The food is just another plus to the incredible ambiance and service.

Heard a lot about this outlet and its food from my foodie friends. So recently when I was in CP with family I decided to give it a try. I am a big fan of Delhi street food and like spicy meals. Compare to Delhi, Bombay ( yes, for me it is still Bombay ) street food is totally different. Less spicy with different flavour.
It was an early evening so we just ordered some snacks.

The best place to have North Indian food in Hyderabad.
I was  in Hyderabad for 8 days on business trip and was craving for North Indian street food. And this place fulfilled all my needs. Ordered Golgappas / Pyaj Kachori / Dhokla / Dahi Papdi / Pao Bhaji / Raj Kachori and lastly Dal Makhani and Missi Roti in main course 🙂
All the dishes were tasty and portion size was also more then enough.
And after all these, had Hot and tasty malai wall milk. 🙂
Service is quick and place is vibrant.

Road to Leh, Lifetime experience

chushul8

The best part of visiting Ladakh could well be the mesmerising, serene journey on road. Two roads connect Ladakh to the rest of the India. Of these, the Srinagar – Leh highway, or National Highway 1 ( Srinagar Leh route ), is easier to handle, and more convenient than the Manali – Leh highway.
The terrain is not so challenging, the Srinagar – Leh route is also dotted with scenic, ethereal spectacles, that transport you to another world altogether.

Road to Leh, Hunder

Sun-kissed apricots and pink apples from the trees entice visitors. Many guest houses even have these fruit trees growing in their courtyards. You can ask your hosts and feast on a few, straight from the tree! The Nubra river paints this village in rich strokes of green although this place is in the middle of a ‘cold desert.’ The desert is the main attraction, with its long stretches of sand dunes and camels. People can view and experience the desert while staying at the green and comfortable Hunder village. Don’t miss a ride on the two-humped Bactrian camels that can be seen there.

Road to Leh – Kargil War Memorial, Dras

kargil

The then Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared Operation Vijay (Kargil War) a success and by July 26, 1999 Kargil War officially came to an end as the Indian Army announced complete eviction of Pakistani intruders.

Every year, special functions are organised at Kargil and Drass in Jammu and Kashmir to pay tribute and homage to the 527 slain Indian soldiers, the Kargil War’s heroes.

The special thing about the War memorial is that it has been built on the theme of the India Gate.

The briefing at the Kargil War Memorial. Listening to the stories about operation Vijay and the brave Army men one wants to be a solider right away. A must stop when traveling from Srinagar to Leh. Do stop and pay your respects. …
