Today is December 8th. I have come across only few poster releases. New Year’s Eve in Pondicherry is complete madness, hustle bustle and fireworks, i suppose its everywhere else too. Here are the few places to check out for Party on New Year’s Eve. Updates will follow as they announce their events.
Nalla Eco Beach Resort
Ashok Beach Resort
The Storytellers Bar
You can also check out Pondicherry Tourism Website for their Special New Year’s Event Organized for Public, in & around the Beach Road.
Best crepe in Pondicherry is at my house, made by my husband Romain. Its True, i am not flattering him (wink)
Since i can’t invite all of you home, i can suggest you a place where you can get the most delicious crepe with an ambiance that justifies Pondicherry. Do not miss going to CREPE IN TOUCH !! It is located on Needarajapayar Street between MG Road and Mission Street.
Unfortunately i dont have a photo of the crepe(s) that i have eaten because it went down way too fast but you can find any mouthwatering images of Crepe on their google map page. I stole one picture of Tripadvisor, in case you are one of the lazy readers who don’t like exploring several sites.
Is crepe a pancake ?
French may explain it to you by saying ” It’s a french pancake” but they will never accept its a pancake. Looking at the recipe that goes in, it looks like a pancake while if we look at the process and how the result is, i would say its like a Dosa (ingredients are not the same though).
Crepe can be made with variety of fillings and can be sweet or salty. My favorite is Crepe with egg (as in the image) and the simple butter, sugar crepe.
These are the example of but not limited to types of crepe :
Egg & Ham/ Cheese
Butter and sugar (with lemon)
Crepe Suzette ( popular one)
Tomato / Cheese
After this you can use your imagination.. Fill it up with Cherries, berries, cream, spinach etc… The Indian in me come out often, filling my crepe with some grated cabbage/carrot and Chili Sauce, turning beloved French Crepe into a Roll 🙂

I wish i could say a lot about Pondicherry in my own words but Pondicherry, like many other city or town, is best experienced than spoken about.
Of course i understand, you would like to cross-verify & reassure yourself about exotic notion you may have built. I have come across several blogs & websites, each claiming Pondicherry to be different from the other. As i said, this town is about experiencing and its fair enough what every individual have explained about our town.
WIKITRAVEL has good listing to get you going. You can find information on how to get to Pondy, places to eat, things to do and you can also find listing of accommodations, if you still haven’t booked yet. PONDYLIVE is a good updated website to refer for latest activities, new & updates.
