‘Delhi dines out the most, Bengaluru splurges more’

06.29AM IST Full site ‘Delhiites dine out the most, but Bengaluru splurges more’ Reeba Zachariah | TNN | Jun 13, 2019, 03:09 IST MUMBAI: When it comes to dining out, Indians aren’t waiting for special events. They increasingly consume non-home cooked food to satisfy their cravings or tuck in to a good meal. A survey by the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) shows each month, consumers are eating out nearly seven times a month. Whether they dine in restaurants, grab food on the go or have a meal delivered, the national average is 6.6 times per month. This, however, is nowhere near the incidence in other Asian cultures such as Singapore (where they dine out 30 times a month), Bangkok (45) and Shanghai (60). On an average, Delhiites dine out six times a month and can’t get enough of the local stuff – more than half their outings are for North Indian grub. Mumbaikars, on the other hand, eat out 4.2 times, with many preferring to dig into south Indian dishes. In Bengaluru, strangely, south Indian did not rank very high, with many of the respondents choosing ‘north Indian’ and ‘Biryani’ over it. But Mumbai has the largest of the organised food service markets pegged at nearly Rs 41,000 crore, followed by Delhi at Rs 31,132 crore and Bengaluru at Rs 20,014 crore. Across India, North Indian fare is, by far, the most popular (41% of the approximately 7,500 respondents called it their top favourite), followed by Chinese (27%), south Indian (23%), Mughlai (22%) and Italian (16%). Interestingly, in Mumbai, among international cuisines, 33% prefer Italian compared to 29% who like Chinese. People in the island city also prefers south Indian food over north Indian cuisines. Another surprising finding of the survey is that people in Bengaluru prefer north Indian food (27%), followed by Biryani (11%) while south Indian foods are preferred by only 10% there. The survey highlights that an Indian household on an average spends Rs 2,500 per month on eating out. The city that spends the most is Bengaluru which splurges Rs 3,586 on its indulgences. For Mumbaikars, the figure is Rs 2,890 while it is Rs 1,381 for Delhi. Anurag Katriar of deGustibus Hospitality, which runs Indigo Deli, said, “The Mumbai market could be further expanded if there is a policy for operating food trucks/food truck parks, archaic drinking permits are abolished and there is a change in limitation on operating hours.” According to the survey, dining out is the most popular choice followed by take-aways and home deliveries. Over 80% of the respondents said they would prefer affordable casual dining restaurants and quick service restaurants to eat out while cafes and desserts & ice-cream parlours are the most frequented. People selected “good food quality” as the main reason influencing their choice of restaurant, followed by “always go there/order from them” and “like the taste of their dishes”. Surprisingly, “Happy hours” as a reason for selecting a restaurant scored the least – barely 1% of respondents indicated it as a reason. The survey also showed that as high as 83% preferred to eat out with a companion while 17% preferred to eat alone. Of those who would dine out with a companion, 37% said they preferred a friend to accompany them, while 30% preferred other family members and 27% preferred spouse or partner. Sundays continue to be the most popular day for eating non-home cooked food, but weekday outings are increasing. This is because busier lifestyles are leading to less consumption of home cooked food. 42% of the respondents said they would prefer to eat out on a Sunday while for 13% Wednesday was the top choice and for 12% it was Saturday. As high as 41% preferred their dinner out while 22% preferred a lunch outside their home and 20% opted for a snack between meals for eating out.

Swanky Place For Spirits!
DROP EXCHANGE is a concept that is unique to the Indian culture remake. It’s only here where ones can trade the prices of their drinks before it goes high. You see, the ‘Drop Drinks” is named after the fluctuation of the stock market.
You can trade via an app or live at the venue ~ All spirits start at a base price and are governed by the laws of demand and supply. Based on the frequency of order and the time periods in which different customers place orders, the demand of a particular spirit, wine or beer grows or declines and the prices go up or down.
Drop Exchange App
On top of that, every day, the market crashes as well, so customers can trade their favourite spirits and purchase at rock bottom prices. Trading then begins all over again from this new set base price. That’s where it’s getting exciting too. To find out more, you can download Drop Exchange App from GOOGLE PLAY or APP STORE .
Coming back to their good and authentic North Indian and Persian cuisine that’s hard to come by, especially outside the city centre, Drop Exchange will satisfy your cravings with their exquisite selections of appetizers, bar bites (new word for food to go with drinks), mains, lunch specials and desserts too. Click here for FULL MENU 😋
Based on restaurant recommendations, we started off with its signatures must-have Tandoor appetizers of Chicken Tikka and Homemade Cottage Cheese Chargrill.
Chicken Tikka RM 30
A personal favourite of mine, the Chicken Tikka was like heaven in my mouth. You see, I have a soft spot for all kind of food that chargrilled. With the authentic flavour of Punjab recipe, the chef coats the chicken with hung curd, special Indian herbs and spices to be roasted in tandoor to perfection.
No tandoori dish, tikkas or kebabs are complete without this mint chutney on the side. I truly enjoyed the flavourful mint chutney made with thick hung curd and fresh herbs to gives it a creamy and silky texture ~ A lovely dipping sauce that goes well with all of their dishes. Best eaten with the tandoori delicacies!
Galouti Kebabs RM 28
Apart from the Chicken Tikka, lamb lovers can opt for Galouti Kebabs. This is toasted minced mutton layered with bread and served with fresh coconut chutney serves on the side as a dipping sauce.
Homemade Cottage Cheese Chargrill RM 27
Next, for vegan treats or even non-vegan, the Homemade Cottage Cheese Chargrill would be an excellent choice. This popular vegetarian Tandoor dish features super healthy baked cottage cheese that’s flavoured just right and marinated well in spices, cool and cream.
Roasted in tandoor, so there should be char lending to that smokiness we love so much. Spicy, juicy, light and slightly smoky, this is a perfect vegetarian alternative to tandoori chicken.
Cutlis RM 25
More appetizers from the Indian Bites menu – there’s also the Cutlis , a vegetable cutlet coated with bread crumbs and deep-fried to perfect crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Best eaten with the fresh coconut chutney serves on the side.
MAINS Salli Ma Margi RM 25
To experience Persian cuisine, appreciating the wonders of herbs, generous use of secret spices and natural ingredients, this amazing chicken dish from ‘Parsi Kitchen’ is a good introduction to Middle Eastern fare.
The Persian Curry Chicken or better known as Salli Ma Margi in the menu is the star dish of the night. I enjoyed every bite of the tender chicken meat with the rich gravy for its unique preparation that fully absorbed the spices in the marinade.
The hearty dish comes topped with crunchy potato salli (thin potato sticks) and Pav (soft bun) to soak up the delicious curry gravy. You can also order warm steam rice to go with this dish.
Papeta Par Edu RM 20
Moving on, there’s the hearty vegetarian dish called Papeta Par Edu ~ Featuring a Parsi-style tomato onion masala dish topped beautifully with a baked sunny-side-up egg.
To best complement this dish, it served with Pav, those soft fluffy buns to soak or mop up the flavoursome aromatic gravy. If you’re looking for a more filling meal with some meat, add in RM 5 for chicken.
Tandoori Butter Chicken
RM 28
Of course, a trip to a Northern India restaurant is incomplete without Tandoori dishes. Firing up our tastebuds that night was the unforgettable, Tandoori Butter Chicken . Chicken lovers like me, look forward to more grilled dishes on the table.
Tandoori Butter Chicken is one of the highlights as it was aromatic with a smoky flavour. It was so well-marinated with curd and spices that you can taste it in the freshly grilled tender and juicy meat from the charcoal tandoor.
It was served to the table looking absolutely gorgeous, charred on sides and drizzled with mint coriander chutney! This is one dish I will come back for more in my next visit.
Rogan Josh RM 40
Meat lovers can check out Rogan Josh , a popular aromatic meat dish of Persian or Kashmiri origin. It was brought to Kashmir by the Mughals.
The Kashmiri lamb curry is a deep red spicy mutton dish cooked with spices and yoghurt, loaded with yummy flavours, making this a perfect meal eaten with a warm bowl of steamed Basmati rice or naan. For me, it tastes delicious either way. More rice, please!
Dal Makhani
RM 30
Last but not least, vegetarians will go gaga over this Indian vegan dish of Dal Makhani. A staple in India, Dal Makhani or Buttery Lentils , is a dish originated notably in the Punjab region.
The lentils dish is cooked by simmering butter and cream or yoghurt, over low heat to perfection. It’s a nutritious, loaded with plant-based protein dish for those looking for a healthy and filling meal. Portion-wise is generous and good for two pax sharing.
DESSERTS Topping off this filling meal is a table filled with super sweet treats of dessert, each with its own set of flavours to delight in, so keep some room for more in your tummy.
They range from creamy milk based Gulab Jamun to the traditional Indian homemade ice cream Kulfi and an Indian delicacy, Rabadi in sugar syrup-sweetened milk with cardamom and saffron.
Gulab Jamun
RM 12 Milk solid base South Asian sweet in pistachio cream & nuts
Kulfi RM 15 Traditional Indian homemade ice cream
Rabadi RM 22 An Indian delicacy in sugar syrup-sweetened milk with cardamom and saffron
I also wished to highlight that these authentic desserts are delightful treats only for those with a sweet tooth. As I favour savoury dishes rather than sweet stuff, it was really too sweet for my palate even for me to take a second bite into these desserts. 😆
Drop Exchange has much to offer in terms of good food and awesome drinks – A great place to chill and relax with your friends over a drink or two. Oh yes, there’s the LADIES NIGHT every Wednesday , so ladies enjoy free flow cocktails from 7-9pm and a half price after 9pm!

What’s the best British cuisine has to offer?

What’s the best British cuisine has to offer? Yorkshire puds and bacon sarnies dominate but there’s little love for black pudding or jellied eels Share The mighty bacon sandwich (Image: Anthony Devlin/PA Wire) Get the biggest Daily
British food is so often the butt of the joke – one famous gag sees the French in charge of cooking in heaven while Brits are doing the cooking in hell.
But while British dishes may not dazzle and delight your taste buds in the same way that Italian or French dishes do, they’re traditional, practical and good enough to stand the test of time, reports Perspecs.
As a nation that takes food rankings with good humour and sense only joking, (remember what happened with crisps?), we thought we’d have a look whether a recent poll into the best of British food hit the spot. The Claim
The YouGov rankings indicate that if we Brits love anything it’s a good fry up and a Sunday roast.
Yorkshire puddings and Sunday roasts made it to the “god tier”, along with the full English breakfast and bacon sandwiches. They were joined at the top by crumpets and fish and chips as the pinnacle of British food.
The absolute king of the British plate was the Yorkshire pudding – the savoury treat from God’s Own Country that goes perfectly with a roast dinner and makes for an excellent place to store gravy. Lovely Yorkshire Puddings just out the oven
Meanwhile, at the other end of the list is the “crap tier”, full of things like liver and onion, laver-bread and jellied eels. They’re not exactly the most appetizing dishes, but they enjoy a cult following from those who do like them.
Looking past the jokes, there’s a lot to like about dishes from Britain – though there’s slim pickings for vegetarians as most tend to revolve around meat. The Counter Claim
As with every time YouGov tries to work out what foods we Brits like best, there’s been a major backlash from people whose favourites ended up near the bottom of the list.
People were furious that the humble pork pie and scotch egg ended up in the “low tier”, garnering less approval than dishes like cauliflower cheese while sitting in the same category as bubble and squeak (boiled potatoes and cabbage if you were wondering).
Pork pies are lovely and scotch eggs are just eggs covered in meat and batter – in what world is that not an improvement on something already close to touching the face of perfection? Black pudding is a popular part of many people’s breakfasts.
Fry up favourites like black pudding ended up in the “crap tier”, while chefs around the nation will weep that the classic dish beef wellington isn’t much beloved, also nestling in the “low tier”.
The complete absence of sausage rolls from the list also caused an uproar, not least with chain bakery Greggs, with both their meat and vegan versions of the food immensely popular. The Facts
If you’re wondering why chicken tikka masala is on the list, it’s because the dish is only thought to have originated in the UK (although this is highly disputed).
Some claim it’s from the Punjab region in India, while others say Bangladeshi migrants to the UK who opened Indian restaurants invented it to appeal to British tastes.
The famous story goes that Ali Ahmed Aslam, a Pakistani chef with a restaurant in Glasgow, invented the dish after a bus driver complained that his food was too dry. Perspecs – a news app like no other

How these opinions are categorised can vary. For political stories this could be in the form of ‘left’, ‘background’, ‘right’. For review items the categories could be ‘negative’, ‘neutral’, ‘positive’.
Readers often stick to their regular sources of news therefore often only ever seeing one side of a story. Perspecs will give you the opportunity to see things from a different perspective and allow you to form your own informed opinion.
Perspecs will publish 1 edition per day and each edition will be packed with a variety of interesting and sometimes controversial topics. Most importantly, there will be 3 sides to every story.

YouGov also decided to rank the best sweet foods Britain has to offer, with scones and Victoria sponge in the “god tier” while the deep-fried Mars bar – a cultural and culinary cornerstone of Scotland – was the only thing to end up in the “crap tier”.
Perhaps it’s for the best if we leave that one for another day. Britain can only take so much squabbling over food at once. Like us on Facebook

Hina Khan reveals her fitness mantra and beauty secret

By TellychakkarTeam 13 Jun 2019 06:55 PM
MUMBAI : Hina Khan is one of the most popular and stylish television actresses. She is also a fitness enthusiast and often shares her workout videos on social media. The actress has revealed her fitness mantra and beauty secret.
Talking about turning a fitness freak, Hina told the magazine High On Persona, “In just a matter of a couple of years, I have become what you may say a fitness freak. When I have a lighter week work-wise, I usually go to the gym everyday and when I am shooting back-to-back or traveling, I at least try to reach the door of the gym three-four times a week.”
The actress, who is known for playing the role of Komolika in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, also agrees how diet plays an essential role to keep ourselves fit. Hina mentioned, “Of course, diet is a major part of the way you wanna work your body and reach a certain goal. I mainly rely on protein-based diet and anyway I don’t eat a lot so it helps my already fast metabolism. But yes, we too have cheat days as Indians can’t live without the yumminess that our cuisine has to offer.”
Speaking about her workout routine, she said, “I make it a point to work out six days a week for one hour at least. My main workout regime includes a mix of weight training, functional training, kickboxing as well as TRX exercises, for the upper body which targets the back, abs, shoulders, and biceps. I am mainly into hardcore weight training, functional fitness, core strengthening, kickboxing which is a great form of keeping fit according to me, as well as increasing your energy levels, and calisthenics as well which is a type of body weight training. Also, HIIT (high-intensity interval training) & TRX. I focus on always giving special importance to my posture which is very important. My mornings start with a glass of lukewarm water with a bit of lemon in it, which makes for an awesome body detox. Post which I have a wholesome breakfast consisting of a glass of fresh fruit or vegetable juice, 2 bananas, corn flakes and alternately a cheese omelet. My diet mainly consists of low carbs and high proteins, which I strictly follow! And only Sunday lunch is a cheat meal for me where I eat anything and everything I like, depending on my mood and craving. I love outdoor exercising too, and I indulge in some swimming, running or jogging and yoga as well, as and when I want a break from the regular exercise routine I follow.”
She also shared her daily grooming by saying, “I feel that whatever we eat shows on our face. Our face is the mirror of our internal system. I drink lots of water, at least 12 glasses a day. It helps me clear my system which reflects on my skin. I also drink coconut water twice a day. A bowl of curd is also a must. I also have one amla a day to detoxify my system and retain the glow on my face. I eat both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, but I don’t overeat. Moderation is the key to a healthy body and when you have a healthy body there is a glow on your skin. I prefer home remedies like applying fresh tomato face pack, as it refreshes my skin. I also put malai on my face sometimes and also take steam to soften my skin. A mixture of dried orange rind and milk is great for exfoliating the skin. I also use milk and rose water on my skin to keep it supple. For my over-night homemade spa treatments for hair, I use a mixture of egg and yogurt. For an extra dose of shine, I combine lemon juice with buckwheat water and rinse it after shampooing. I use a warm towel to wrap it around my head to steam the scalp as it encourages blood flow in the area. I never let even a drop of conditioner touch the scalp.”

11 Online Business Models

Canada Corporate Strategy Cyclical Canada 11 Online Business Models Gary C. Bizzo Follow | Thursday, 13 June 2019 11:59 (EST)
Image: Bruno Glätsch , Pixabay
I know a lot of people who envision a business of their own but don’t either know how, think of it as an alternative to a brick and mortar business or don’t have the time to devote to running it. They want to let it run itself.
The online marketplace is opening the door to an entirely new entrepreneur. They’re keeping their day job but are creating an online source of revenue that will augment what they earn. It makes sense to have a secondary business for many reasons including residual income, security and more disposable cash.
There’s a plethora of advisors out there to help you create and define your online enterprise, and the models are myriad. The premise is easy: you are simply bringing supply and demand together on a platform that never sleeps.
My buddy sold short research papers on the craziest topics many years ago that earned him a few dollars every hour of the day. He wrote on “How to get rid of cockroaches” and while we were having a beer in a pub his sales notification bell kept going off on his phone indicating a purchase – seriously?
You must admit online sales seem easy. After all, you usually don’t require inventory, you can forget manufacturing and you earn money instantly. Your inventory is drop shipped from the manufacturer to Amazon without you even seeing it and PayPal manages the purchase and even deposits the money in your bank – cool!
There are unbelievably ingenious methods to sell products and services. Some of my students are from India. One told me of a restaurant in Gurgaon, India, that charges you for your time, not for the food! Ok, so it’s not online but the idea is curious. You pay roughly 22 cents a minute to eat from a buffet. The buffet comprising Italian, Indian and Chinese cuisine and your time starts the moment you pick up the plate. Once you’re done, you raise your hand to stop the timer and a check arrives with a charge for the number of minutes you spent eating.
RELX ( RELX ) , fka Reed Elsevier, is a global provider of information and analytics for professional and business costumers across industries. RELX’s business is in scientific journals. They print them on a weekly and monthly basis and the subscribers have to pay for getting access to the latest ongoing researches in various industries. Academics upload their work for free, peers edit the work online and Elsevier sells it back to the schools and universities it came from. The government funds most of the research, pays for the salaries of those who are involved in checking the quality of the research and then buys most of the published product – pure genius!
Ok, so there are very creative minds out there however there are many business models that you can use yourself. Why reinvent the wheel?
Some of the more typical methods to sell online:
– Sell products
– Sell services
– Pay per product use
– Pay per service use
– Subscription
– Freemium
– Ads
– Donation
– Opensource
– Multi-side platforms
– Sell virtual goods
So, you setup a website or use someone else’s and you sell your products or service online. It might be your own handcrafted goods or your personal services. You can sell handicrafts at Etsy or your services through AngiesList. You control everything from the price to the delivery. I’ve seen many people earn crazy amounts of money by being an Amazon ( AMZN ) affiliate.
Pay-per-use works well when the service can be effectively metered. Zipcar , the Avis ( CAR ) subsidiary, Modo and Car2Go offer car-sharing for people who use a car occasionally effectively disrupting the auto sales industry where the price is aligned with use. You just have to look at Netflix ( NFLX ) to see how pay-per-view has enabled the shift from standard broadcast technology to multiple cable channels. For SaaS companies, the shift to cloud-based computing models has been a godsend. It drives me crazy because we used to use our programs for years after purchasing them. Now we have to pay monthly to use them.
Subscriptions have been with us for decades and we’re used to it. The customer is already sold on the idea of subscription purchasing so it’s an easy sell. I guess pay-per-use is partly a subscription but so is your newsletter, your educational blog and any information-based platform to which you can get people to subscribe.
Who doesn’t love the Freemium model? When Hotmail first appeared this model was a surprise. Like many, I feel if you have a kick ass product that is delivering value, charge for it. Freemium is an exceptional method of going viral as long as it is a great product or service, and you can convert it to a revenue model before you go broke. Skype is a great example of this although I am at a loss how they make money.
Well Facebook ( FB ) made the case for creating a platform, giving it away for free, building up a massive following then using the people to push advertising as a revenue generator. Just in case you are skeptical about this revenue model, Facebook’s mobile ad business grew 36.1% during the quarter to $15.475 billion from $11.373 billion a year earlier.
Creating a business model based on donations is sketchy at best. I know people make millions from crowdfunding and there are cases of “causes” generating incredible monies but the normal donation site gets little revenue. I was pitched by a crowdfunding “expert” who wanted to manage a campaign for me. When I asked her how many campaigns she had done over the years she told me she managed two dozen or more. How many reached their goal – none!
Open source projects are generally developed within communities of enthusiastic programmers who often voluntarily contribute their time at RedHat ( RHT ) .
The developers of Linux are considered to be worth $1 billion. Sure they give the product away, and that’s the rationale why developers work for free to develop it, but there are revenue-generating features of open-source. They give away the software but support and enterprise solutions are costly.
A two-sided market, also called a multi-side platform, is an intermediary economic platform having two distinct user groups that provide each other with network benefits (Wikipedia). Great examples of this are LinkedIn ( LNKD ) and eBay ( EBAY ) .
Two-sided markets are also useful in explaining many free pricing or Freemium strategies where one user group gets free use of the platform in order to attract the other user group.
If you’re a gamer you will know about virtual goods. Each day, thousands of transactions take place via markets such as eBay for virtual swords, currency, or clothing across a multitude of virtual world environments. If you can create a cool game, give it away to massive crowds of young people you can make a killing getting them to pay a small amount for rewards.
Virtual goods – hmm! You use hard currency to purchase virtual currency (Bitcoin) to buy virtual goods that leaves you nothing in the end. I guess that’s entertainment.
While I purchase almost everything online, I prefer my company to be on solid footing on solid ground, so I can interact with my clients personally versus having just an online presence. But then again, I do sell my books on Amazon .

East Hyde Park Restaurant Archeology on Eire Avenue

Over-the-Rhine has done a phenomenal job of garnering national recognition for the Cincinnati food scene. But I have to fist pump with some neighborhood pride for my little enclave in quiet East Hyde Park. Long before the OTR restaurant bubble, there was a about a two block section of Eire that became a playground for hyper-fusion international cuisine in Cincinnati. In fact, this little section of Hyde Park East has housed a quiet neighborhood foodie scene since World War II.
When I moved into the area, almost two decades ago, there were still bungalows to be had for bargains from some of the original owners, or their families. I bought mine from a retired unmarried teacher, the daughter of the man who built it in 1922. I spent the next several years renovating, but preserving its original craftsman character. My small enclave were the working class homes of Hyde Park, a contrast to the monstrous Victorian mansions on Observatory just up the hill. The old streetcar line which these Business Barons took to their offices downtown, ended near the corner of Delta and Eire. The miniscule cottages on Tarpis, where the funky Mushroom House stands, were built as worker cottages for the single streetcar operators. The old car barn was located behind what is now Coffee Emporium .
The first block to take on this fusion cuisine is a series of connected 1920s era one story, neighborhood shops at Eire and Amberson, that includes Haps Irish Pub, an old school barbershop and a family pharmacy. One of the first Thai restaurants on the East Side, Bangkok Bistro, which took over a vacated Snappy Tomato Pizza joint in the complex in 1994, introduced Pad Thai and Choo Chee to many gringos in Cincinnati. They paved the way for Lemongrass on Madison, Ruthai’s on Linwood, and Wild Ginger on Edwards.
Chef Yaj of Cumin.
Then, in the early 2000s, Chef “Yaj” Udyaya and Tunisian native Alex Mchaikl, renovated the old Taco Casa in the same complex, creating a very small boutique Indian restaurant called Cumin. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. They brought bold flavors and interesting new dishes that none of us could pronounce. Cumin expanded into a larger spot next door, then it became Ash in 2013, and now Café Mediterranean, owned by Fahri Ozdil. The small original Cumin space became an Israeli restaurant, then M, a wood fired pizza place, and now it’s Forno Osterio + Bar, the brainchild of Tuscan chef Christian Pietoso, of Via Vitae and Nicola’s. Forno has a wild boar with chocolate sauce – cinghiale in cocciolato – that’s as authentic as the same dish I had in Montelpuciano, Italy, at the Café Polizano.
Around the corner at Saybrook and Eire, is another late 1920s cluster of shops that has housed great restaurants since the 1930s. The end shop at 2672 Eire first housed the Saybrook Tavern, a family restaurant specializing in steaks, and seafood, and known for their kissing fish mural in the dining room. The owner James Morgenroth, operated a butcher shop next door and then opened the Saybrook Tavern in 1946. He served as President of the local National Restaurant Association, and would operate the Tavern until 1976. Morgenroth sold to his manager, David Walsh, who would then sell it to the next owner in 1984, when it would become Pasta al Dente.
Pasta al Dente was fantastic and always packed – they dished huge portions at great prices. Serving homemade ravioli and cannelloni and stuffed zucchini, it was great for us recent, poor college graduates who could make three meals out of a trip.
The inside of Saybrook Tavern, 3672 Eire Avenue.
In 2005, owner Jay Scavo decided to close Pasta al Dente. The space was then taken over by Merritt Oleksi, a culinarian from Boston, and Charlie Choi, a local Asian restauranteur, and named Sake Bomb. The two pioneered sushi in suburban Cincinnati. Choi would go on to open Dancing Wasabi on Edwards, in the old Beluga restaurant space, and then Mr. Sushi downtown.
In 2011, 2672 Eire would become Saigon Café, a Vietnamese and sushi restaurant, under Alex Ng. I spent many a ‘half price sushi’ night there eating a Hyde Park roll (spicy tuna, cucumber, avocado, and tempura flakes) .
Then, in 2016, Ng closed Saigon, moved it to Clifton and spent the next 18 months renovating the location into Bourbon Smokehouse, which only lasted about six months. They had some of the best smoked wings in the city in my opinion, but they were never consistent and couldn’t compete against East Side barbeque behemoth Eli’s. Now Delicio Coal fired pizza is set to open any day – the fifth restaurant, in the 90 year old space.
Sunshine Fine Foods, at 3501 Eire Avenue, was one of the oldest butcheries and neighborhood markets and now houses 3501 Korean Bistro, with the best Korean wings in the city. Nearby, there’s also a phenomenal craft butcher and deli – Dutch’s Larder – in a 70 year old pony keg, at the corner of Marburg and Eire – where Chef Patrick Hague makes the best Basque sausage and meat creations in the East Side.
Chef Patrick Hague of Dutch’s.
Two residential houses were combined to make Hyde Park Tavern at 3384 Eire Avenue in the early 2000s. At its latest incarnation – Keystone Bar and Grill – you can find several types of gourmet Mac N Cheese. It’s not my thing, but its been popular enough to survive for nearly ten years, mainly, I think, because of their huge outdoor patio.
For a brief period from 2016-2017 there was even a small Chipotle-inspired Indian takeout called Indi-Go, at 3392 Eire, next to Keystone Grill and the dry cleaners, catering to a growing number of Indian immigrants moving into the area. I enjoyed chatting with the owner Sujata Pai, and tasting her samosas and chutneys, but they didn’t last very long.
So, I’ve been lucky to have a smorgasbord of international cuisines within footsteps of my house and I look forward to what comes next!
