Relish & Rewind at United Coffee House Rewind


United Coffee House Rewind – UCHRewind at Dlf Mall of India , Noida is unique in a lot of ways.

From  the cool blue color exterior, a colored version of the original place at Connought Place (CP) to this really cool sitting space which is very well utilized to offer maximum sitting, the elaborate menu that seriously spoils you with choices and off course a see through kitchen.

Normally Sunday’s are like those lazy days when you have already stepped into Monday blues. And after a heavy breakfast you are not able to decide whether to go out for Lunch or have a light one at home. Same happened with us and we thought of stepping out to Dlf Mall India for lunch.

This Mall really spoils you with a lot of dine-in choices.We finally settled down for UCHRewind as I wanted to have my coffee and my husband wanted…

Some Earth from Native Roots

Few of us have experiences from our childhood where we have seen earthen cookwares from handi , matki to tawa and few more. I loved  my tea in kullad just like the smell of earth after the first rain in monsoon- soundi soundi mitti ki kushboo. Milk boiled in earthen pots that had s different taste, Curd made in earthen pot the consistency was out of this world.

“In Ayurveda, Pancha Mahabhuta theory states that everything in the physical creation is composed of these 5 elements, Akaash (Ether), Vaayu (Air), Agni (Fire), Jala (Water) & Prithvi (Earth). We at Native Roots have dream to make available products that are rationally inspired by Pancha Mahabhuta and bring about a healthy world through active Natural and Organic intervention.” – Thats what the about us section of Native Roots reads at


Cooking utensils and drinking tumblers 

Had been to Select CITYWALK yesterday and on my way out , I was stuck on this small counter that had various earthen pots on display. And as i started evaluating that i should or i should not pick since had no plans to pick up anything, Mr Mishra at the counter smiled and said all of this is made of earth (mitti) and are sourced from Orissa and are on display to promote and sell the products made by artisians back there..

Cooking wares – 100% Microwave safe 


I got pretty interested and asked him so what does he do, he said he is a lawyer by profession and his wife is in  IT. he is doing this work out of passion for this work and supporting  the artisians. All the utensils are microwave safe and are reusable. The best part of the cookwares are that they can be used on the gas too for cooking.

Mr. R.N. Mishra spreading a bit of Earth from Orissa at Select CITYWALK 

So what all you may pick from “Native Roots ” , well the options are many from bowls, to tumblers, to plates, thalis, tava, kadai, cooking wares etc etc. So do explore the earthen ware for a toxin free cooking.

What is the procedure for upkeep,well thats also very simple , just wash them with luke warm water and a pinch of salt. Isnt that really easy. The most important fact why i am seriously vouching for these earthenwares is that these are toxin free and completely eco friendly. We all have read or heard that the utensils made of melamine are very hazardous and the colors which are used to beautify these utensils are further dangeous, so the earthen wares from natie roots are a great relief from such toxicated utensils. I have picked the following and looking forward to add more to my kitchen really soon.

My pick from Native Roots 

My strong recomendation for these products is Earthen tumblers for your special Tea / Milk. Using the cooking ware for making curd or making curry dishes.

And the pricing is also quite affordable. Bowls for Rs. 30/- each, Tumbler for Rs. 50/- and that deep serving cum cooking dish for Rs. 400/- only.

Using the earthen pots is like going back to roots yet staying modern and eco friendly.

Fresh & Healthy – Culinate


A Sunday is always heavy on lunch as everyone at home is actually home.

But this Sunday was different as nothing was soaked a day before ( generally its Rajma / Chole ). So thought of exploring on something new and Culinate came handy with their wide range of menu. Literally for once I was like what to pick, though the home page gives you an easy pick of creating a combo box from a range of option to choose from  soup, salad, sandwiches, juices etc and a dedicated section for Breakfast too.

Dont be confused on what to pick as they are going to spoil you with choices which is unliely for a online delivery site. This had the widest menu of all the orders done so far epsecially online.

Taco Bell – for the love for Mexican food

Check this out if you love Mexican food.


When I visit a restaurant  somewhere the marketer in me is always looking for the details beyond just the food, menu  and store layout. And for the first time i realized these guys have got it better than most others in this league.

Sometimes the simplicity in details and thought of putting all of it out there makes more difference than the fancy jagrans.

We entered the store with the idea of picking our lunch and quickly moving out, We knew we are not going to have it in the store but there speed to deliver made us sit and have it and thats when i got engaged with the interesting stuff  in the  store communication.

You will get tosee a lot of mention of this phrase  “Live Mas ”  where mas is a spanish word meaning “more” and this was introduced for taco bell in 2012 when they replaced their existing…
