Isn’t it fun when your city surprises you! When you come across new places, new experiences…

Not too long ago, I had to take an ink blot test to ‘prove’ how unusual I am. That’s how Food Talk India and Hendrick’s Gin chose the guests for their dinner event, called The Unusual Table at A Ta Maison. It included the perfect (gin soaked!) menu, 10 strangers, 10 blindfolds, 2 hosts, and a great evening.

I’ve also loved trying samosas stuffed with pizza at Social Offline, chuskis served in mini pressure cookers at Indian Accent, and punching in secret codes at PCO to get in for a drink. Most recently, I smashed an egg to find a party invite inside, thanks to Chef Nuria Rodriguez (PS: she’s the Project Director at Imperfecto and the newly-opened Informal).

Clearly, this city has a lot of cool quirks. So here’s a list of some of the unusual things I’ve recently discovered… New normal?
