The new Shanghai Whopper from Burger King

The new Shanghai Whopper from Burger King

Burger King has just introduced a limited-edition burger called the Shanghai Burger.

Last weekend, Snubnose and I visited Burger King and I have to say it’s been the most lip-smacking burger offering that we have tasted from Burger King so far.

Last weekend, I had an exciting opportunity to go see Chef Shazia Khan cook up some delicacies for us, and hopefully pick up some nice recipes and cooking tips to share with you all.

For those who aren’t aware, Shazia Khan is an Indian chef. She participated in MasterChef India (season 2),and was the Runner-Up in the competition.

I went primarily for the foodie bits, but I came away impressed by Shazia as a person as well.

Yup, I am still looking back at 2016. January is not yet done, so I am allowed, I think. Anyway, recently, I posted my favorite books that I read in 2016, and now I want to talk about other memorable experiences last year. Brace yourselves, this is going to be a long one.

The first weekend of the year has been action-packed and beyond hectic. My weekends are anyway usually full with horse-riding classes for Piglet and art classes for Snubnose. And now I have added an activity for Coco as well.

Netflix, Pottermania, Sun, Sea, and Sand

Netflix, Pottermania, Sun, Sea, and Sand

Last week of December was the Winter break, and now after a week of sleeping, and eating when I please, my circadian rhythms are all over the place, and I am feeling enormously tired and jet lagged although I went no further than Chennai (about 300 km east of where I live) to my parents’ place.

As you might have guessed from my blog title and first sentence, I spent the break alternating between being a couch potato, and being a lazy hippo wallowing in the water, and felt thoroughly relaxed in the process.

All my RSI-related aches and pains, and Vitamin D deficiency-related pains all faded away taking me to a mellow state. And yes, the multiple bottles of beer helped too 🙂 .

Here’s a quick rundown of all the happenings.

Southern Heat at Barbeque Nation

Southern Heat at Barbeque Nation

by

On Monday, Snubnose and I did our regular stop at Barbeque Nation to sample some of their special edition Southern Heat food festival that focuses on South Indian foods.

Barbeque Nation always does these events in a big way – so when you go, you can expect a humongous variety of dosas, idlis served table side, live counters serving food prepared to your taste, and tons more food in the main buffet. You never leave hungry from a Barbeque Nation.

There was heavy traffic (so what’s new about that in Bangalore) all the way to the restaurant, and Snubnose and I entered ravenous and ready to do justice to all the food on offer.
