  10. Taj Mahal

    Taj Mahal, a castle in the Air spreading the charm and fragrance of what we call pure love, is a majestic monument located in Agra in the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh. Every sing year, millions of tourists flock to witness the unparallel beauty and architecture of this monument. We, at Perfect Agra Tours present you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit and explore the remarkable beauty and historic importance that Taj Mahal has to offer. Our Same Day Agra Tour by Car is created for people like you who want nothing but a chance to visit the Taj without disturbing their busy schedule. So if it's a day-off or just a weekend, grab the opportunity and book your trip with us. The tour itinerary goes as follows: Pick up from Delhi: Our representative will meet you at Delhi International Airport or your hotel in Delhi, from where we shall drive towards Agra on Yamuna Expressway. In three hours, we shall reach Agra to visit our first destination, the Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal: Taj Mahal has been spoken and written about a lot, yet, no words can describe the beauty and historical importance of this magnificent monument. Located beautifully on the banks of River Yamuna, the monument gets its name from the lady it was built for – Mumtaj Mahal. She was the Mughal Queen, known for her stunning beauty. And to honour the true love, her husband Shah Jahan built this monument to dedicate as a symbol of love. Taj Mahal is a massive monument built in symmetry. It looks identical from all corners and is surrounded by a huge corridor with four minarets on each corner. Located within the Taj Complex are the graves of the King and the Queen, who were buried there as per the last wish of Shah Jahan. Taj Mahal is important travel destination for many reasons. First, it is one of the finest examples of architecture. Second, it is a dedication of a husband for his wife, thus Taj Mahal is counted as a Symbol of Love. And for these two reasons, the monument is included amongst the 'Seven Wonders of the World'. Baby Taj: Yet another architectural marvel is Baby Taj, called so because it's a replica of its bigger version. Baby Taj is the tomb of Itmad-ud-Daula. The monument has its importance for its historical value and stunning architecture. Lunch: After visiting these two places, we shall enter the Bon Barbeque Restaurant for a buffet lunch. After lunch, rest for some time before resuming your journey. Agra Fort: Next destination in our list is Agra Fort, the Royal Museum of Mughal Empire. Located at a distance of 2.5km from its more popular sister building Taj Mahal, Agra Fort was built as the capital and residence of the Mughal Emperors. One of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Agra Fort was later converted into a museum. It houses innumerable belongings of the erstwhile rulers. Visit these places and then be prepared for checkout. Our representative will ride you back in a car to Delhi where you will be dropped to your hotel or Indira Gandhi International Airport. Perfect Agra Tours thank you for being a wonderful traveler.

  15. modern Indian cuisine

    Absolutely loved this article Suresh ji.so agree ,that we are a long way away in terms of presentation and flavour experimentation.When I was in India,I was tired and literally cried with the thought of same flavour every.single.day ; every .single.meal . When the chinese & the japanese could adapt our curry to their palate ,why can't we do that the same. why can't we take a risk and try fusing our flavours,after all our cuisine is so varied due to the influence of different rules/rulers:mughals,persian,iranian,portuguese,oh even africana influence......it's endless really. I recently watched a clip of a young restaurant owner,in NYC trying to experiment b/t Indian and mexican food,she is half mexican BTW. Fusion should be the new spice in Indian food industry. And,our chefs can definitely try to present our food more elegantly .we had the thali style,tiffin style ,then came the sauces being served in froths [ whihc was ugly and really unpalatable].Gone are the days ,when we made one pot dishes and served in one big blob.these days people want something different ,something more appealing to their eyes,maybe a pleasurable experience to all the senses. Pricing;- I think we are very traumatised by the nearly crumbling British Raj ,which has left us with deep Scars.Our parents nd grandparents,possibly great grandparents, believed that spending on an experience is a waste of our hard earned money.truly so. Times are changing,and we do see Indians dining out purely for an experience.That kind of experience dining could be a high end dining.but Sharing and offering 2 for 1 price should be allowed too.After all these customers tend come back again and again,whihc is a boost to ones business either ways. I really hope,with the kind of cuisine as ours ,our chefs become more creative .I think ,this is the only industry where one needs jsut the right blend of creativity and a scientific approach.

  25. Grasshopper : Restaurant Review Rating : 3 stars out of 5 (Good) Visited in October 2015 Bangalore, India Grasshopper restaurant in Bangalore has been doing for fourteen years what no other restaurant in Bangalore has dared to do - present a degustation meal with no a la carte choices. Chef Himanshu Dhimri and his wife Sonali Dhimri operate their restaurant in a farmhouse-like property in a peripheral part of Bangalore better known for its proximity to the zoo, and in an area that is yet to show good urban development (even the busiest parts of central Bangalore are barbarian miles away from real civic development). My dining companion was Mr.Suresh Hinduja - restaurant critic of The Times of India - and the most sought-after restaurant personality in the state at the time of writing. We opted for a long leisurely multi-course degustation offering the very best that Grasshopper could offer. Grasshopper does not do lunch on weekdays which is why our weekday event was illuminated by night. When is the last time you have heard your fellow diner shrieking with pleasure? If you leave out the last two words , I did on this night when a young lady next to our table climaxed her vocal cords not courtesy the chef, not due to her co-diners , and certainly not as a reaction to the waiters (this place does not have topless service staff anyway) but because the friendly restaurant dog leapt onto her lap. I am not an admirer of chicken liver pate , but Chef Dhimri had accomplished a texturally faultless pate excellently cut by caramelized onion and tart scintillas of capers - it was a beautiful opening example of flavour calibration, and an auspicious start to our meal (the dog instinctively knew that it should leave us alone). Thin slivers of asparagus yielded very easily to the bite - just like the versions tasted two weeks ago in Caperberry - but neither these nor Caperberry's had that crucial dimension of extra thickness that can really bring out the tres tender slightly crunchy totally wonderful soul of asparagus. Even more fetching would have the been the feat of contrasting it with something that would intensify the vegetable's fresh essence - like how Flower Drum does by pairing asparagus with superb pearl meat ,but here there was no such value-enhancing companion. I was surprised that Chef Dhimri could condescend to present us with a crostini for the next course - sure it was a moreish morsel with chopped zucchini, basil pesto and feta but this , eventually, is bar food which has no business being in an ambitious fine-dining establishment. From aeons , Grasshopper has been presenting beetroot with blue cheese - and this de rigueur dish was also given to us. Pinenuts are added for crunch , and the overall flavour blend is interesting without being memorable - I was mainly interested in seeing whether the beetroot had remarkable flavour, which it did not have. Disappointment intensified with a prettily composed diagonal lay-out of salad. Its elegant esthetics were not matched by underwhelming contrasts of grapefruit, lettuce, nuts and a tart dressing. Two plump prawns - looking palely gorgeous - had ginger, seasame and seaweed plainly evident on the tasting as per the chef's intention but unwittingly the prawns' intrinsic taste did not manifest. This long procession of average flavours had begun to take its toll on my peace of mind. We sat in the verandah , overlooking the pebble-strewn courtyard which has tables of stone. Irrespective of the seating domains, all the tables are admirably spaced widely apart. The very limited wine menu cries out for more variety , and charging only Rs.300 (US$ 7) as corkage fee for bottles procured from outside is not the most elegant of solutions. A reasonable Rs.3000 is billed for a seven course meal. Suresh Hinduja Esquire I don't think Grasshopper understands how pliable and satisfying a German lass has the potential to be. The pork with pickled cabbage it presented had cuts of fat amalgated with inadequately tenderized meat . Sea bass was dressed up as an appetizing voluptuous hunk of white fish bathed in a tart sauce. I see now that in restaurant after fine-dining restaurant - in NZ, Australia and India experienced over the last four years - a major chunk of chefs present fish which is admirably soft with an odour that is very safely non-offensive but very few of these gentlemen know how to channel the fish and manage the supply chain in such a way that the taste's redolence satisfies a true fish-lover. The one here had everything going for it except deep flavour and a smartly roasted exterior - two crucial qualities the absence of which semi-sunk this sea bass which Mr.Hinduja informed me was likely farmed near Vizag (overseas seabass tasted in JW Marriot's Alba was not impressive either). Mr.Hinduja was greatly impressed by the lamb which he felt to the best version he'd tasted in the entire country. Superbly slow-cooked with a slickly roasted exterior, it displayed a beautiful disclipine in texture right throught the entire thickness and for all its manicured sculpted beauty, this tournedo would have been a complete tour de force, were it not for its slightly dry interior. Chunks of potato on the same plate lacked the pillowy softness that fine-dining restaurants are expected to engineer. Service was just about par for the course but it could easily be more polished and charming, apart from doing more to ensure the kind of vigilance that redeems world-class establishments. Keeping service staff of that caliber will easily drive up the bill but I am sure that the extra bucks will not matter to the kind of people who come to Grasshopper expecting it to be a destination restaurant (there is a very low likelihood of diners accidentally finding themselves in this remote place). Desserts totally atoned. Their excellent panacotta had soft body - with cool creamy notes of exquisite espresso. Discs of chocolate ganache were terrific - their silky melting sophisticated richness recalling an intimate encounter with a curvaceous supermodel. This was cleverly paired with mustard ice cream that would have benefitted from slipping one notch lower in sweetness, but that is strictly a minor crib only. I admire the audacity of Mr.Himanshu Dhimri and Mrs.Sonali Dhimri but yes, there is certainly space for this restaurant to evolve. This 10 course Grasshopper meal came at the end of a month-long India trip that included dining experiences in Orient Express and Indian Accent in Delhi, Zodiac Grill and Masala Library in Mumbai, Caperberry and Dum Phukt Jolly Nabobs in Bangalore. It was a succession of dining experiences that sometimes made me collapse with the exertion of it all, with my ability to remain standing not exactly helped by the fact that the pocket had become much lighter. Sadly, in none of these restaurants did I come across an auteuristic signature that I could deeply admire. I realized as I did in my whirwhind coverage of Sydney's and Melbourne's elite restaurants, that in fleeting trips like this , reaching restaurant nirvana is often a throw of dice. Sometimes you come away with experiences that dreams are made of, but on both of the above journeys I mentioned, I have been left with a mixed bag that one is not entirely persuaded to lug along the lanes of memory.
