Dear friends, May is here and we thought we could bring some relief with a 'water' special issue. We have covered everything from the historic Cooum to the latest hotspot Chetpet lake. So, take a chill pill and slurp it all up.

As for foodies, we take a peek into the Brick Oven and dig into

some yummy food. And do read about the latest workshops to keep your kids busy this holiday season. Also, don't fail to do your duty as a citizen of India. Yes, register your vote in the forthcoming elections and raise your voice for what is right. Have a splendid May folk.

Quaint little surprise

The Brick oven, the new all-day hangout in Accord Metropolitanis reminiscent of a kitchen in a small cottage with a quaint country charm. The box G e seating arrangement against the walls like an embroidery around a handkerchief - is breathtakingly different. The service was very personal and welcoming. Jai selmeri kofta, the main course, was definitely the 'Hero'. The smooth buttery texture of the gravy leaves a coat on the tongue, and lets us wait in anticipation for the rest to follow suit. A bite of the kofta releases its flavour just before making its entry into the mouth. This effect combined with the trail left by the gravy is akin to witnessing a seductive ballet dance on a platform, in this case: the tongue! The wafer- thin Tandoori naans served alongside functioned like an ideal subrnissive partner, giving balance to an otherwise edgy relationship.
