Where to eat in Athens (Vegan and vegetarian options)

For people who visited Greece or Athens, it will always linger in their taste buds, Greece Cuisine or food. You can't deny the appeal of the lip-smacking Greek gastronomy. From savory and succulent Mausaka to Falafel, Souvlaki, and enticing Tzatziki, to luscious Loukoumades Athens is a foodie's home and I won't be wrong in saying Athens is the foodie's capital too.  

My favorites are here: 

A for Athens The name lives up to the name of this restaurant. Breathtaking panoramic views of astonishing Acropolish to magical views of Monastiraki Square and the great food is worth coming to this restaurant. Had one of the best drinks for a sober like me. Upscale Greek cuisine with a modern touch and twist makes it one of my favorites. Breaded Eggplant rolls, Lamp Giro, Cod with vegetables, and Lemon Sauce and you shouldn't leave without trying open apple pie and berries cake. Mileage of great ambiance, great food, and great service under one roof. 

Veganaki I am not a vegan, but I have a thing for vegan food. This restaurant is a gem if you are vegan or vegetarian. Love how creative spin is incorporated into vegan food. Being a vegan or vegetarian you miss traditional Greece Souvlaki, try it out here and try all the Greece dishes. Their pesto pizza is a must-try. If you have a sweet tooth, but are conscious of what you eat especially dessert try Tiramisu. 

Moma Athens Without breaking arms and legs you can have great food in a great atmosphere and Mama Athens is the perfect example. It is located between Hadrian Library and the Temple of Hephaestus. We had a perfect breakfast. Great portion, modern, clean, and vegetarian-friendly. 

Ciel Bar is arguably one of the best views of Athens from the rooftop and is lively. The friendly staff and food are decent. Loved the mushroom risotto. An Ideal place for brunch or dinner. 

Da Vinci Italian Gelato  Choices of icecreams and Gelatos is an address for dessert lovers. Choices from premium, classic, and seasonal to chocolate, Italian, green American, and zero sugar and ample varieties available. 

Acropolis Museum Cafe and Restaurant Most importantly it is convenient as it is inside the museum. After exploring a large museum one loves to have something to eat and relax with a drink and if it's with the close-up view of the Acropolis, it is cherry on top. 

Attica Bakery ...Visiting Athens and not trying some sinfully succulent dessert is unacceptable. And Attika Bakery is a one-stop shop for all your sweet needs. Kataifi to Galaktoboureko to Baklava you just name it and also at a very reasonable price. Located just across from the Church of Panagia Kapnikarea.

My favorite pieces of Assamese Traditional jewelry

My grandmother's thuria, age-old and heirloom jewelry, of course, not part-able         A piece of jewelry echoes a region's rich heritage, aesthetics and sensibilities and Assamese jewelry does not differ from that. A piece of jewelry not just enhances the wearer's beauty but identity as well.       A land of flamboyant rivers engulfed in exotic flora and fauna, birds, musical instruments Assamese jewelry is highly inspired by that. Sharing a few assamese pieces of jewelry from my personal collection.       An Assamese bride's dress up is incomplete without Assamese jewelry. Traditionally Assamese jewelry is purely handmade. The main frame is made out with 24-carat gold and lac is used as a filling material. Stones are studded on the top.  The creatively and meticulously studded stone craftsmanship resembles with pomegranate seeds. The color and texture of the stone are opulent and lurid just like pomegranate. Nowadays imitation Assamese jewelry are als

Keeping it simple-random things about me

Hello my dear readers, how are you all doing? Summer vacation has just started here on the east coast. My kids are having a gala time. I can't tell you how time is flying. My time is all occupied by them. Taking to them, playing with them, take them to the library, reading stories and most importantly cooking their favorite food. Hence thought, I'll keep it simple and straightforward. It has been more than a year now, and I have shared so many things about my life, travel, fashion, etc. Today I'll share a few random thoughts about me. 1. My favorite color - Navy blue, peach and off-white. Not that I don't wear any other color, but those colors are readily available in my wardrobe. 2. My favorite outfit - In western I love to wear a crisp white top and blue jeans. I know very casual. In Indian, I love sarees. Mostly, I love handwoven and handwork ones. I love salwar kurta too. You will find more solid colors then prints or patterns in my wardrobe. 3. Am I fitnes

Bartaco, West Hartford , Connecticut review

It was a usual February day, the chill felt like tucking in the furry comforter and stay cozy at home. But, the matter of the fact was that it was my birthday  and my family wanted me to take out for dinner. I was reluctant and wanted to stay at home. My little one was after me and I couldn't say no. I had no clue where we were heading for dinner and then here we were at the Bartaco. Vivacious Bartaco instantly took away my winter sluggishness. With a gracious greeting, modern contemporary laid back sitting and a bit of hustle and bustle made me alive in the winter freezing February. The high ceiling, ivory walls, earthy light shades stroked a tropical vibe and the food spoke a lot about Mexico and Latin America. As a sober, I chose housemade pomegranate lemonade and hubby got grapefruit ginger juice. I never had pomegranate lemonade before, I must say it was one of the coolest and refreshing lemonade I have ever had. The tint of lemonade not just took the look but
