Lotus Mahal [Lotus Palace] at Hampi

Lotus Mahal [Lotus Palace] at Hampi

Our recent Karnataka road trip was such a good one. We went to many places including Hampi! It feels so good to see what the people have built hundreds of years back. Hampi's Lotus Mahal [Lotus Palace] in Zenana Enclosure [Ladies Enclosure] is quite a unique and different design. Here are some photos that I have taken at Lotus Mahal. Hope you all like ☺

Grass Lily [AKA Eleven O'clock Lady, Nap at Noon, Star of Bethlehem] • Scientific name: Ornithogalum umbellatum

It was just by chance that I got this beautiful photograph. We were at Thoseghar Waterfall, and just when the crowd was starting to grow-up, we left for the main road, towards car parking. Walking along the road side, a rawly made house of someone had these grass lilies popping out near the entrance. We have these same grass lilies in many colours at home, which were gifted by my sister. Taking photos of these grass lilies was quite a joy! I hope you like the photo :)

Dezio • Restaurant Café Bar, Kalyani Nagar, Pune

How brilliant an idea I must say, the restaurant Dezio is! Chef Dario Dezio and his wife Rebecca have a buildingful of restaurant, serving different food on different floors! Thank you so much Carpe Diem for inviting me for food tasting, and thank you Pracey and Shivangi for being such nice hosts :)

To start with, here is the first photo, of the tastiest food I had there:
Risotto Al Funghi…

The rooftop has a bar and comfortable seating. It has a more elevated small-group seating arrangement also, which I found to be the best place at Dezio, to spend some good time at, eating equally good food. The ground floor has a wood-fired oven, and beautiful outdoor seating. The first floor has fine dining area. The second floor is usually given for parties.

As I have mentioned above, what I liked the most was the Risotto Al Funghi. Unfortunately, I did not like the Peperoni Farciti. But of course, it is my personal taste preference. Some of you may like it. Do try their tarts by the way, especially the Yughurt Tart. The Siciliano Veg Pizza was also nice. I do not like thin crust pizzas, but this one was really good.

Chef Paul Kinny of 212 All Day Cafe & Bar is truly exceptional, and so is the 212 All Day Cafe & Bar itself. He is one of the best chefs around, and the restaurant is one of the best managed restaurants around. I was there by invitation for food tasting, and I must say that it was the best overall experience yet! Thank you hosts Carina and Shivangi, from Carpe Diem, for the invitation, and for the comfortable hosting.
