The Qutb Shahis and Nizams established Hyderabad as a cultural hub, attracting men of letters from different parts of the world. Hyderabad emerged as the foremost centre of culture in India with the decline of the Mughal Empire in the mid-19th century, with artists migrating to the city from the rest of the Indian subcontinent.

Al Rigga Road: A hub where much of Dubai started – Khaleej Times

Al Rigga Road: A hub where much of Dubai started Sarwat Nasir /Dubai Filed on February 13, 2019 | Last updated on February 13, 2019 at 04.48 pm Share Vote
The Al Rigga Road in Dubai.-Photo by Dhes Handumon It is a home to the first mall that was built in the UAE. Al Ghurair Centre was built in 1981 and continues to thrive to this day. Dubai attracts millions of tourists each year for its luxury offerings and world-class experiences, but the emirate does not fall short when it comes to showcasing its historical charm and culture. Perhaps one of the most historical areas in Dubai is one we travel through regularly without realising it – Al Rigga Road in Deira. Usually, it’s packed with the daily hustle and bustle of residents and tourists – thousands of them entering and exiting the Al Rigga or Union Square Metro station, while others take a stroll along the 1.5km-long street. It is also home to the first mall that was built in the UAE. Al Ghurair Centre was built in 1981 and continues to thrive to this day. The mall also has the first McDonald’s branch, which was renovated a few years ago to give it a fresher look. Al Rigga Road isn’t just a commercial area, though. There are many people who have called this area their home for several years. One Indian family, for example, has been living in Al Rigga for 18 years now. Speaking to Khaleej Times, Shilpa Parmar said she, her husband and her son can’t imagine living anywhere else in Dubai. “My husband moved to Dubai 25 years ago, as he is working in the airline industry, travelling frequently. He chose Al Rigga as his base and after marriage – 18 years ago – it was natural for me to move to the same place,” she said. “I was very comfortable from day one, as I was close to Deira City Centre (which was and still is one of the major attractions in the area), it’s within walking distance from Al Ghurair Mall. It has a 24-hour supermarket; the creek is nearby; and it’s a short drive away from one of the best golf clubs in the emirate – even the iconic Clock Tower is just a stone’s throw away. “The area is also linked to Al Maktoum Bridge, which connects us to other parts of Dubai.” Parmar said Al Rigga has changed tremendously since she moved there nearly two decades ago. It has a lot more to offer now than ever before, in terms of restaurants, shops and transportation methods. “Al Rigga has changed from a silent area, where mostly only hotels were present, to a bustling, popular area as two of the busiest Metro stations are here. Al Ghurair Centre was revamped and has become a major mall, with a Carrefour branch and popular cafés. There are plenty of multi-cuisine food joints, money exchanges, bus stops, salons on the street, which are all useful for residents. I love this area and I am a very happy resident,” she added. Another family who has been residing in the area for more than 10 years said living in Al Rigga feels like they are “on holiday” because of all the tourists who come to see the sights. A Pakistani mum of two, Mehnaz Ibrahim, said she’s been seeing a growing number of tourists in Al Rigga. “It’s like we are living in one of the most popular areas of the country. There are so many tourists taking photos here. Many of them are walking on Al Rigga Street. There is so much on offer here, making it a very convenient location, not just for the residents but also for tourists,” she said. “We’ve been living here since 2008 and it’s really a second home for us. Rents over the years have gone up and down, but, overall, it’s a very affordable area.” Must know 1- Home to UAE’s firsts Al Rigga is home to the country’s first mall, Al Ghurair Centre, and the first McDonald’s branch. Built in 1981, both continue to thrive to this day and have undergone renovations in recent years to keep up with the times. Al Ghurair is now considered a major mall, complete with a Carrefour branch and a host of popular cafés. 2- Bustling area

Proxi Brunch

Proxi, located in the heart of the West Loop, with its sleek black brick exterior and floor-to-ceiling windows, looks unassuming surrounded by larger industrial buildings. However, once you step inside you are greeted with a gorgeous and welcoming interior that screams mid-century class with a few industrial accents, setting the stage for the rest of your delectable meal.
This is to be expected from Andrew Zimmerman, the Chef/Partner at both Proxi, and the nationally acclaimed Sepia, a Michelin Star restaurant located right next door. Proxi claims to offer a brunch consisting of a variety of bold dishes and drinks influenced by cuisines from around the world, and honestly, they deliver on this promise. Every dish that we tried was unique and delicious in its own way, truly a worldly and culinary experience for your taste buds.
Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and was happy to give us recommendations and explain some of the meals to us. He suggested that we try their elote fritters, which turned out to be an amazing recommendation. We were all too eager to express our love for these deep-fried golden goddesses. The fritters are Proxi’s simple yet delicious take on the classic Mexican street corn dish. They take fresh corn, toss it in a seasoned tempura batter, deep fry them and top it with a creamy homemade mayonnaise sauce that finished off the dish perfectly. The sweet and salty fritters literally melted in our mouths, making them a wonderful start to our brunch.
The kimchi fried rice with pork jerky, my personal favorite, was a well-balanced mix of flavors. The tangy kimchi wasn’t too overpowering and paired well with the sweet and smoky pork jerky, which was amazing and bursting with flavor. The creamy duck egg helped to balance out the slightly spicy kick of the dish and to top it all off the rice was crispy and fried to perfection.
Next up was the braised chickpea curry. This dish was a surprising hit. They took a basic curry to the next level with the perfect blend of spices. The rich house yogurt was drizzled on top sparingly, but it melted into the dish giving it a creamy and velvety texture. The chickpeas were perfectly tender and tasted amazing mixed with the poached egg and scooped up with the homemade puri , a traditional deep-fried Indian bread.
Following that we dug into the griddled corn bread, which was Proxi’s twist on eggs Benedict. Served on sweet cornbread slices instead of an English muffin, this dish was rich, sweet, savory, and completely original. The cornbread was moist and flavorful making it a solid, tasty base to this dish. The eggs were poached to perfection and topped with a smoky paprika Hollandaise that was divine. The Tasso ham was thinly sliced and slightly crispy adding a salty and savory component to the dish. This was a big hit at our table. The dish was served with a side of herb roasted red potatoes that were soft on the inside with a crispy outer shell, they were great for dipping in the extra Hollandaise sauce.
Then there was the Cemita “Milanesa,” basically a fancy Mexican torta. The sandwich featured a breaded and fried pork tenderloin loaded with an abundance of condiments including sweet red pepper jam, tangy Oaxaca cheese, black salsa made with roasted and blackened peppers (to create its rich dark color and smoky flavor,) and avocado. We chose to add a fried egg on top of ours. Bitches pro tip: Always opt to add a fried egg on top of anything whenever you’re given the chance. All of this yummy goodness was packed between two toasty sesame buns, to round out this monster of a sandwich.
The flavors texture and ingredients were all on point, however, the one area where this dish was lacking was in the final execution of eating the sandwich. It was definitely a knife-and-fork kind of sandwich, with all the toppings weighing it down. It made it hard to pick up and eat, especially with the pork tenderloin wanting to slip out of the bun on every bite. If you’re up for a messy experience or don’t care to cut up your sandwich, then you probably wouldn’t mind, as the flavors and uniqueness of the dish can definitely outweigh the minor difficulty of eating it.
Finally, we devoured the Old Fashioned, a classic breakfast of eggs, bacon, and toast. While very simple, this dish was still a fantastic choice. The homemade sourdough was crispy and slathered with butter and the smoky bacon was cooked to a mouthwatering crunchy texture just between crispy and chewy. This dish is great for someone who is looking for a smaller meal or isn’t as adventurous with their food choices.
The Bitches say: five Champagne flutes. This truly was a culinary trip around the world with unique and bold flavors that set them apart from many other standard brunch restaurants. The classic mid-century design added a stylish flair to the space that made you feel like you were dining in luxury, with deliciously prepared and plated food, all at a reasonable price.
Proxi serves Brunch Sundays from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The science of gastronomy

Share A s the gourmet industry is pushing boundaries to create experiences that aim to please more than your palate, we explore how molecular gastronomy—a visually delightful technique—is changing the way we look at ingredients and presentation
Maybe you’ve been oblivious to the fact that the nitrogen ice cream stations set up at elite weddings, which you’ve been raving about are actually an outcome of molecular gastronomy! Nitrogen, once associated with balloons, is now being used to churn ice cream. That’s the magic.
PHOTO: THE OBEROI, DUBAI
The gourmand’s new world
Though the technique was pioneered by chefs in Spain, it fits the notion of extravagance that Indian weddings portray. It’s not its complex assimilation that makes it a charming procedure, but it is what you see as an end result—a spectacle on your plate—which makes it a trend that’s endured since it was made popular in recent years by Chef Heston Blumenthal. “Honestly, even candy floss looks extravagant with the use of this technique,” opines the delighted Chef Sanjana Patel. Surprisingly, molecular gastronomy wasn’t a term coined by connoisseurs but evolved from the interpretations of the common man. However, what is it and why should it interest us? “Simply put, it is a way of adding agents to get a particular outcome in the way your food looks and tastes,” shares Chef Patel. PHOTO: LA FOLIE PATISSERIE
Revamping menus
Since we’re talking fancy appearances, naturally, this method has earned itself a spot in our wedding set-up. Aren’t we all about grand gestures anyway? “As a concept, it will change the way weddings are celebrated in India today. It’s gaining popularity, especially among clients who are willing to give their guests an ‘experience’ of a lifetime. Also, this gives us the freedom to experiment with the evolving needs of the Indian palate,” expresses Chef Vishal Atreya. PHOTO: PETIT PHILIPPE CONTRIBUTOR, GETTY IMAGES
The Indian mould
Just when we were confused as to how these exquisite techniques can be adapted to the Indian way, Chef Patel shares her experience of working on the menu for a wedding in Kolkata, “We decided to make sandesh tartlets ( sandesh with saffron caviar)!” It doesn’t end there; they also converted a Thai drink into a frozen dessert that’s caught the fancy of many. Basically, your guest is living an experience. From seeing the beauty of how it’s prepared to savouring incredible combinations—it’s innovation at its best!
Chef Patel then poses a simple question; what would you rather see sitting on your plate—a serving of the usual tomato-based dressing or a newly conceptualised tomato jelly? Clearly, the latter is bound to pique your interest. In fact, it’s this very aspect of engagement, which makes it a factor worth adding to your wedding, especially in today’s world that boasts of high-level customisation.
If you weren’t already overwhelmed, Chef Atreya paints the picture of the ultimate game-changer. You can now turn your cliché wedding cuisine into a gourmet’s paradise. He opines, “From having customised cocktail bars to live dessert counters, innovative decorations like edible flowers to table pieces, the choices are endless.” Spoilt for choice and taste, along with the accompaniment of visual drama, rest assured that your guests will carry back a host of memorable experiences.
