Kolkata – Peter Cat Restaurant

Peter Cat – A Legendary Restaurant in Kolkata, India

India is a vast country where people belonging to different social, cultural and religious identities live together as one. To the east of the country, lies the city of Kolkata, former capital, foremost cultural center and an absolute paradise for food lovers. The food scene in Kolkata is filled with unlimited varieties and boasts of a whole lot of restaurants that offer various types of cuisine ranging from the indigenous Bengali to modern European and Continental and almost every kind of cuisine in between.

Ask anyone in Kolkata about their favourite place to hang out in the city and chances are that most of them will answer, “Park Street.” This beautiful stretch of road runs between two important crossings of the city and is a prime food, entertainment and business zone for the people of the city. It is dotted with many popular restaurants known for the delicious food they serve. It is a very common scene to find people patiently waiting in long queues on weekends outside these restaurants on Park Street.

A legendary restaurant standing tall amidst all the eateries of Park Street is in operation since the 1960’s. Apparently named after a cat who made the Lord’s Cricket Ground, London his home in the 60’s, this family run eatery boasts of a wonderful ambiance and is beautifully decorated. The waiters are dressed in regal Rajasthani style attire and are known for being extremely courteous and attentive.

Although their menu card runs up to 9 pages and consists of many well-known Continental and North Indian delicacies as well as many varieties of Sizzlers, their signature dish remains their version of the Chelo Kebab, originally a dish from Iran. The fame of this dish at Peter Cat is such that food lovers visiting the city take time out to make a trip to the restaurant so that they can gorge on the Chelo – two succulent pieces of mutton kebabs marinated in Persian spice mix, served over a bed of buttered rice with a poached egg and char-grilled cubes of chicken and vegetables on the side.

Sterling – Cheng’s Restaurant

Sterling – Cheng’s Restaurant

Cheng’s is a family owned Chinese restaurant that has been running for the past thirty years. I have been there multiple times and my favorite dish of all time is the “Kung Pao Chicken”. It is wonderful as it includes chicken tenderly fried toss style in a spicy sweet savory brown tangy sauce with roasted tasteful organic peanuts and red spicy chili peppers.

It is located next to the Regal Movie Theatre in Sterling, Virginia 20146. It is located on the right corner of the shopping center, as it is disguised. Therefore, Cheng’s is located in the United States of America.

The food is really good there, as the ambiance is just perfect. There is a pond inside the family owned restaurant, which is just an amazing scenery as I enjoy the order of Kung Pao Chicken when I go there every time. What is amazing that they use authentic ingredients, fresh poultry, fresh seafood, and fresh beef. Every single time that I order they are consistent.

Cheng’s restaurant in Sterling, Virginia in United States of America is an amazing place to go with anyone. Another time I went with my uncle and my family, and I actually ordered crispy tender chicken drenched in garlic sauce. It was amazing. This is my family’s favorite restaurant without a doubt with it comes to Chinese Oriental food. When I order the Crispy Honey Shrimp, the shrimp is cooked perfectly. Many times they are rubbery and overcooked but that was not the case. Shrimps are always cooked to perfection. One time I ordered egg rolls for appetizer and while they so tasty. They had a schezuan spice that was included and with it was perfect with the eggroll, because there was just a hint of sweet balance to it with the cabbage in it.

I would come back here any day, service is always good, and not always crowded as they handle customers perfectly.

Koh Tao – Beach Club By Haadtien Restaurant

Capri - Aglio oglio
Koa Tao


In the small island Koh Tao that’s in Thailand in a beautiful hotel located in shark bay called “Beach club by haadtien” there’s the most romantic beautiful Italian restaurant right on the beach named ‘Capri’.
The place is designed so that even if all the tables are full you would still fell as if you’re there only with the person you came with.
All tables are facing the ocean so as well as a romantic mood you get to see the best view.
The restaurant specializes in pizzas of all kinds. They have a brick oven where they bake the pizzas right after you order.

We ordered the vegetarian pizza. It comes with onions, peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms all on a crispy crust with amazing tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Best pizza I ever had in Thailand! for a minute I actually thought I was in Italy.

The restaurant also has a large selection of pasta. We tried the ‘Aglio Oglio’. The sauce on this pasta is olive oil, garlic, chili flakes and of course graded parmigiana cheese.
This dish was incredible. The pasta was cooked perfectly and had so much flavor.

The service in ‘Capri’ is also worth mentioning, the staff was very nice and we got everything we wanted without waiting even though the restaurant was full.

I would go back to ‘Capri’ without a doubt!
For the romantic atmosphere, for the beautiful view, for the good service but most of all for the amazing food. It’s definitely worth traveling to Koh Tao for.

Buffalo – Frank & Teressa’s Anchor Bar

The United States is known for many great food dishes. Depending on what part of the country you’re in will determine what might be the top recommendation on the menu.

When you are in Buffalo, New York the favorite dish on the menu is chicken wings. If you are a local, then you just call them wings, but if you’re passing through you might call them Buffalo wings, hot wings or a combination of the two. And, if you’re local, you’ll know exactly where to get the best ones, really cheap almost every night of the week.

I highly recommend the Spicy Hot BBQ chicken wings from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY which claims to be Home of the Original Chicken Wing’. While their original sauce is famous around the world, I really like the sweetness the BBQ sauce adds to the flavor, it also cuts a little bit of the heat. Ever wonder why wings are served with celery and carrots? They help cool your mouth from the spicy heat of the hot sauce, especially when dipped in blue cheese dressing!

There are plenty of ways to order your wings, I prefer mine cooked extra crispy, extra saucy. Cooking for the extra few minutes ensures the fat on the wing is crispy rather rubbery, and the meat generally falls off the bone this way. Extra saucy? Well, who wouldn’t want extra sauce?

In Buffalo its traditional for wings to come with blue cheese dressing on the side, however, you can order ranch dressing if blue cheese isn’t your style. They will know you’re not local, but better to order what you like than suffer through blue cheese if you hate it!

If it’s your first time I recommend ordering a mix of medium wings and BBQ wings to get started. If you can handle the heat, you can always ask your server to bring out the hot sauce to try, just remember to ask them for extra celery!

Phoenix – Oregano’s Pizza Bistro




Hey, are you craving for a upbeat family-friendly restaurant in Arizona? Then, Oregano’s Pizza Bistro is for you.

Oregano’s Pizza Bistro is a family-friendly restaurant that specializes in Italian entrees specially the iconic pizzas. But, this restaurant takes this defintion to a different level like Chicago style. For example, the pizzas can be served in thin chest(the classic version), Pan pizzas, and lastly stuffed pizzas.

The thin crust pizzas is your standard flat crust pizza that can offered as cheese only or if its not enough for you, you can add topples to your heart’s content.

The pan pizzas is a flaky crust size of the thin crust where its even more thickly and cheesier than its thinner brother.

Lastly, the stuffed pizza is like it sounds, its a deeper dish added the homemade crust and fill it with cheese and fresh ingredients and then covered it with a layer of thin crust and top it with a tangy sauce(boy that’s a lot of tomato sauce to be put on there).

All of these three pizzas’ chesses are the not ones that you can find at grocesy stores, they are all made from the lovely state of Wisconsin. It sounds like you want to go there now don’t you.

I have both good and bad news. The bad news is the business is only exclusive in Arizona, but for Arizonan natives your in luck.

The restaurants are currently opened for sixteen stores in Arizona.

The business has been going strong for almost twenty-three years now so it definitely reflected all of the entrees that I mentioned early. But, are you still carving for a delicious dessert, don’t they got you covered! They offer the infamous, but sweet pizooke. The pizooke is cookie version of the pizza, but it much sweeter. The pizooke is offered for three flavors, the original chocolate chip, peanut butter, and lastly the caramel chocolate. All of these flavors taste fantastic when you try it yourself.

So what are you waiting for?  go on down and get your tank filled with Oreganos pizza today.
