Where’s your hole in the wall?

WKND - - Meet The Team - Sush­mita Bosse Ed­ito Edi­tor

The other day, I was thrilled to read (on Face­book) that Raju Om­let, the karama eating eg­gery, now has a branch near Al Quoz. Close to of­fice. Vi­sions of me pol­ish­ing off a masala omelette (no­tice the spell­ing dif­fer­ence— but that’s only be­cause Khaleej Times fol­lows the queen’s style) along with a but­tered pav, and soak­ing up the plea­sures of cut­ting chai were im­me­di­ately con­cocted. I could drop by for egg-al­i­tar­ian de­lights post-work— even though the orig­i­nal Ra­juom­let is just a stone’s throw from where I live; I could meet friends there for high tea. And so on. But the an­nounce­ment also made me re­alise that Ra­juom­let no longer qual­i­fies as a hole-in-the-wall joint; it’s now big­ger than that. There’s bound to be more pub­lic­ity (other than word of mouth), brand­ing, mar­ket­ing. I hope it doesn’t lose its lovely eggy touch in the rush of ex­pan­sion. Hav­ing said that, holes in the wall con­tinue to thrive in Dubai. This week, we have a spread from a cer­tain­part of town. They are small by way of square feet area, cheap and cheer­ful, don’t stand on cer­e­mony (but there may be plenty of per­sonal touches) and the food served knocks you off with its pre­dictable good­ness. Join us on a food trail.

On our cover, we have the Lit­tle Black Dress— a style state­ment that never goes out of fash­ion. The supreme must-have in a woman’s wardrobe. The go-to item for al­most any oc­ca­sion (how you ac­ces­sorise de­fines where all you can be seen in it). Read about this black wash.

In Travel, get design-savvy in Hong Kong. Bol­ly­wood rides the wave of stars headed west­ward; this time, it’s Deep i kap who’s tread­ing the path. All this and much more.

En­joy read­ing wknd. and have a great week­end!
