Product Review: Green Tomato Pickle By Tiffin Asha
Are you an adventurous eater? I sure am. Of all the ethnic foods that I love to eat, nothing has quite as distinctive a spice profile as the cuisine of India. It’s not just about the taste, it’s about the aroma — about the very being-ness of the food. What if there were a condiment you could add to foods to give them that Indian spice profile and crave-able flavor without having to hit up the exotic spice market and then spend all day in the kitchen? You would want to know about it, amiright? Please let me introduce you to Tiffin Asha’s Green Tomato Pickle condiment or, as I like to call it, Indian Food in a Jar.

Honest Vegetarian Indian Restaurant is Love at First Bite!
In NYC right now, it’s exciting to see favorite neighborhoods making a post-pandemic comeback. New stores and restaurants are opening everywhere, revitalizing the local economy, and getting us all pumped-up for a fun summer in the city. Being a downtown girl, I love seeing what’s new in places like Bleecker Street, in the heart of Greenwich Village, where there’s always something interesting to discover — especially when it comes to good eats.

The Mural is Located in NYC’s East Village, on Sixth Street Just East of First Avenue (Next to a Duncan Donuts).
Restaurant Review: Sapphire Cuisines of India Sparkles On the Upper West Side
Fans of Indian cuisine here in Manhattan are often fiercely loyal to restaurants located in neighborhoods like 6th Street in the East Village or the stretch of lower Lexington Avenue known as Curry Hill. But I like to explore neighborhoods that are maybe not known for having the highest number of Indian restaurants per-block, and see what options there are for dining outside my immediate stomping grounds. This past week, I discovered a true hidden gem (pun intended) on my first visit to Sapphire Cuisines of India on the Upper West Side, and feel like it is already a favorite destination owing to gracious service, lovely décor, and fresh, innovative dishes. Let me tell you about the experience I had dining with my favorite Foodie friend, Anne, at Sapphire.
