Christmassy Winter

The winter is Christmasy and a friend is in town. Today I had an incredible lunch with her at Bohemian. We ordered two Bekti dishes for main course: Gondhoraj Bhetki and grilled Bhetki with Bengal berry sauce. Both were delights! We sipped the Gondhoraj Julep mocktail all along. For dessert we shared the soul-filling Malpua Cheesecake, which was very light considering it was a cheesecake.

The new No Refusal cabs in the city offer a much more comfortable ride at the same fare. We took one such to Mrs. Magpie. The Christmas decor at Magpie was tastefully done and not in-your-face. We idled away the afternoon over a pot of Darjeeling tea.
