Things-To-Do: Goan Spices And Thai Curries
It seems like the days are dragging on to the weekend and there is less to do with every passing week. So to spice it up, we got plenty of things in this week’s listing which range from food to dance shows, and a quiz contest for deaf students to a tribute to one of the greatest Hindustani classical musicians to grace India.
Starting with food, Lake View Cafe has a special Goan culinary festival running from 20th February until 4th March. Every evening between 7 pm and midnight, you can enjoy Goan delights, prepared from authentic recipes that use coconut milk, tamarind, spices, kokam, vinegar, rice and curries, ranging from main courses to desserts, cocktails and more. Koh by Kittichai introduces The Koh’nversational Lunches which is apt for kitty parties and social gatherings. The set lunch has some delicious Thai delicacies prepared under the guidance of Chef Ian Kittichai.
For an exquisite drink, head to RainForest RestoBar which is now serving the cream of the crop in the Brandy range, the Louis XIII de Rémy Martin Cognac. Or try some fine wine at Bonobo as All Things Nice arranges a Wine Appreciation Programme on 25th February.
