Vegetarian Food Review: All You Can Eat DimSum Festival at 5 SENSES in Westin, Chennai

Westin, Velachery, Chennai is running a ‘All You Can Eat DimSum Festival’ for two weeks beginning 21st March 2016. We have been on Dimsum for a while now which our foodie friends know about and boy! weren’t we super excited to be there to get a taste of it.  For all those Chinese food lovers in Chennai, authentic Chinese food is lot different from what we eat in most of the restaurants here and painful truth is Gobi Manchurian is Not AT ALL Chinese food.  That was a big letdown for me.  But having said this, it was also evident that true Chinese food is lot tastier, lighter and quite healthy.  Now let us proceed to our review…

AohcR93Otm5_jqTWcnsxcRJmNKwRK64SKEGIy1TnXtO0Westin, Velachery, Chennai is running a Rajasthani Food Festival and we were invited to taste the food and share our experience here.  Rajasthani Food Festival did not ring much bells in our foodie palate as we always associated it with dry desert region.

Weekend Break Getaways, Indulgence to the Core

All these efforts to succeed strain our physical and emotional being and also our relationships. The solution lies in a break now and then to keep the spirits up and freshen and energize our tired minds. Till few years back, such a break was a vacation to hill stations or a picnic or excursion with family and friends to nearby locations. It was a good option given the fact that it kept us away from work and gave us an opportunity to interact with family and friends. Travelling these days is no fun. We travel everyday and spend a lot of time on the road. So there is no point in spending our precious time travelling to some place. Just a bit of understanding – Where do we want to unwind? We want to move away from the place of residence and work, to a soothing atmosphere with relaxing activities, good food, and some fun. Why not to the city’s best hotels of my choice? My advantages would be local travel, away from the hubbub of daily life and if it has the things that I love why not? Here are the three best hotels in my opinion for a quick relax and refresh session.
