Blue Nile- A note worthy restaurant in Pune

Mutton Biryani Blue Nile High On Food
Before going out for Blue Nile, I researched extensively on best biryani and Mughlai food in Pune. I came across very few places which focus on just food.

Everybody who comes to enjoy his vacation in Jammu and Kashmir usually plan for Katra, Vaishno Devi and Srinagar of course! So, tourists hardly get a chance to explore the local food of Jammu. Luckily, I have lived in Jammu for good time now and possibly covered most of the street food ( Ofcourse, I have not! I am still hungry) Jammu has variet...
