Jalwa of food @ JLWA, Bandra (W), Mumbai

With 3rd restaurant/bar in less than a year, Priyank Sukhija is sure on a mission to change the landscape of Mumbai's restaurants/bars. Massive and spacious are the words synonymous with what Tamasha, Lord of The Drinks and now the youngest one Jlwa are. The Bold and shiny interior makes a vibrant ambiance. During daytime, enough …

The Bhookha Beirdo, Bandra (W), Mumbai

Tucked in a bylane of Pali Hill, TBB is easy to find. The facade is not as appealing as the name is but that’s an ignorable shortcoming. The restaurant is tiny yet cozy. The interior is minimalistic and the walls are adorned by travel theme knick-knacks. The owner, Anurag, welcomed me and narrated the story …

Iconic Milkshakes – Keventers

I was taken by surprise when I read the tag-line 'The Original Milkshake'. A little search on internet revealed that it may or may not be the original, but they indeed have a rich history to back them. After reading the history, I am glad that the company is trying to revive the brand and …

Breakfast @ Aromas Cafe, Powai, Mumbai

Even though I have visited Aromas Cafe several times as it is near to my office, it still remains the most under explored place for me. From last two times Theobroma's loss turned to be Aromas Cafe's gain. It was Saturday morning and the indoor section was fully occupied. I tried Akuri on Toast, which …

Sprout Gourmet @ Powai, Mumbai

The name may be misleading to make one think it's an outlet serving just salad and healthy options but they have a host of Indian and international cuisines on the menu. I tried Falafel Wrap, Burmese Khow Suey, Creamy Pesto and Northern Veg. Falafel Wrap was refined wheat flour based falafel accompanied with potato chips. …

Ruha Kitchen & Bar, Powai, Mumbai

The first thing you notice after entering the place is the royal and nawabi interiors. Colorful and cozy enough to give you feeling of entering a royal dining room. While the interior is aesthetically great, the combination of western music and pan-Asian menu imposes an identity crisis to some extent. We opted for corporate lunch option and …

The place has dedicated sections for casual dining, lounge & bar and a rooftop lounge for sheesha.   This place is being set-up by none other than K. M. Saif. A renowned chef …

Lord of the Drinks, Andheri (W), Mumbai

Exclamations like 'big', 'spacious' are often missing while describing restaurants in Mumbai where cramped spaces are a way of life. Spread across 8000 sq. feet and divided into 3 sections, al-fresco, a ground and a first floor, Lord of the Drinks would be synonymous to those hardy found exclamations. The moment you enter the place, you get …

Set Lunch @ Neel, Powai, Mumbai

Neel literally means indigo in English. While it's English named twin serves Continental, Neel caters Indian cuisine. This twin restaurant shares kitchen and is separated by a partition. Guests can sit on either of the section and can order food from either of the menus. When we visited for lunch on Friday afternoon, they assisted …

Cheese bases to match your mood – Ovenstory, Bhandup (W), Mumbai

Pizza has always been a comfort food as it is just a phone call away. Ovenstory, a delivery only kitchen, with 17 outlets across Mumbai and suburbs adds to this. Overstory has 4 different pizza ranges based on types of cheese used. Chipotle, Peri-Peri, 4 Pepper and El-Classico. I got an opportunity to try out …
