Posts from the ‘Eating out in Mumbai’ Category

Me, sexy? I’m just plain old rice and curry!

Sometimes the food before you is so good that despite your best intentions ( I will always remember to click pics before i eat, i will always eat slowly, chew my food thoroughly and not eat like that’s my last meal for the rest of my life etc etc) before you know it, you have broken every single food related rule you have set for yourself. And sometimes, it’s soo good that you change your mind and decide to click pics anyways, after you have eaten, bad light, dirty plate (or leaf) and all! And sometimes it just soooo ridiculously good, that as you travel away from the restaurant, you fish out your tablet…because you just HAVE to write about it and stretch that experience just that bit longer. Your fingers practically fly and your happy tummy does the writing!

So this meal I had… The one which was sooooooo good was a quick little snatched thaali at Nandana in Bangalore while on a fly through teaching trip.. All by myself in the simple dimly lit restaurant, just before I rush to the airport, I knew the food would be good. But I never imagined it would be SO good!

The star for me… The chutni powder…. Mixed with rice and glistening rivers of ghee, this is the stuff of dreams. I can’t begin to capture the flavour in words…creamy? Nutty? Spicy, salty…I started the meal with this yummyness  and then HAD to end it with it too. And then I had to have yet another helping. With 3 helping of ghee ofcourse… And yes, thank you, if you have some more, I’ll take that too.

The sambar, rasam, dal…. Sigh!

Relishes … Really, pickle can be THAT good?

The rice… fluffy, white..Oh the grains of pure bliss

So the best meal I had in a long long time was a quick snatched affair, in a little place, part of a restuarant chain, cost me 90 rs and took precisely 2 minutes to arrive. Don’t remind me I said this..but, gourmet shmourmet, baking shmaking be damned i say!! Nothing beats hot rice, chutney and ghee. Best of all, on a lone evening, all by yourself, with no one to distract you. Just you… And heaven!

Restaurant Review – @ the Table during restaurant week

Yum Yum Yum-- the chicken took wings

Yum Yum Yum-- the chicken took wings

The second restaurant week in Mumbai Kicked off on Feb 6th this year. ┬áHaving booked ourselves at a few restaurants on the restaurant week website; we landed at The Table in Colaba. Frankly we had chosen The table just because we didn’t see many other options available that day and going all the way to town seemed more eventish.

To start with, greedy as we are, the four of us (Atul, Kanu, namrata and I) decided that we would order different things and share so that each one of us could eat everything and we would end up eating as many things as possible…

Goa – Again!

Our beautiful holiday bullet

Our beautiful holiday bullet

I had been cribbing about the sameness of life for a while when Atul and my friend Baljeet plotted a surprise. I had taken Friday off on Atul’s (uncharacteristic) insistence that I needed to accompany him to one of his filmy events and was looking forward to it with a mix of dread and anticipation. Read more

Searching for home delivery in Mumbai?

We just shifted to Andheri and need to yet build our repository of home delivery places and good restaurants in the area. And since I always need to have something new and exciting, and am always on the lookout for great places to eat my friend Namrata found and send me a bunch of links today… Thought others may find these interesting too…
