I am new to Delhi and Gurgaon and currently working in an MNC. I don’t drink or smoke but I would like to visit a place where even single people can enjoy (less smoking and variety of mock tales and good vegetarian food).
-Rahul Dutta

Hi Rahul, you can head to a couple of eateries in Greater Kailash Part I N Block market for a variety of cuisine. You may also want to visit Greater Kailash Part II M Block market which has a host of restaurants with good ambience and a multi-cuisine menu. If trying something different is on your mind, then check out the eating joints at Hauz Khas Village, Shahpur Jat, Satya Niketan or Saket markets. Here, you will also find some shopping options.

Hi HT City Search, I am searching for an oven that my granny used. It could be placed directly over the gas stove. It baked as well as heated multiple dishes. There was an adjustable rack inside.
Vandana

Hi Vandana, such ovens were used long time back but still there are few places in the Capital that sell them. We will advise you to check out the Sadar Bazaar market in Central Delhi where, in all likelihood, you’ll be able to find one. Also, head to the Wazirpur Industrial Area. The market has many shops selling utensils and kitchenware items. A place called Pahadi Dheeraj in Central Delhi, near Sadar Bazar can also be checked out for the same.

Hi, I am from Assam and have been looking for an authentic Mulberry silk sari to gift my wife. Please help me find out some places where I can buy one from.
Kesang Negi

Hi Kesang, the best destination for your search would be the ongoing Surajkund Crafts Mela that has Assam as its theme state. Here, the stalls are selling authentic Mulberry silk saris from Assam. If you don’t want to go that far, you could visit the Assam Emporium at Baba Kharak Singh Marg in Connaught Place for a larger variety.
