Review: Sodabottleopnerwala

Posted on Updated on

Parsi, Irani

He is high energy, quirky, noisy, fun…he’s the  brand new muscular dhikra on the BKC block. And (if like me) you like all things Parsi and Irani you’re sure to flip for this one. My dapper Parsi companion (who resolutely wants to remain anonymous) approves of the food and ambiance as do the gorgeous and well-travelled trio of friends. Deepika Gehani creative and marketing director represents top international luxury  brands, Soha Parekh is the author of the best seller book on saris. And Bangkok-brought up Sapna Singhania’s uniquely beautiful jewellery from there is in constant demand.

Review: Taj Mahal Tea House

Posted on Updated on

Multi-cuisine

Question: which new restaurant has Zakir Husain’s tabla and a chess set on display? specialises in tea and has been set up by a multinational company?  No prizes for guessing that it is the “Brooke Bond Taj Tea House”. I popped in there for a refreshing afternoon with two well-traveled foodies.  Vikram Phadnis, fashion guru (its his 25th year in fashion) and over the years his masterly flair has also been showcased in films, be it Aishwariya, Amitabh Salman Khan or Priyanka Chopra.  Anjali Pathak from London, author, foodwriter and chef  is
not only  from the family that brought Indian cuisine into global households, but also a cookery champion for Jamie Oliver. I’m excited about unique cooking school (hands-on multi-cuisine cooking sessions and interactive dinner experiences) that she is setting up. Yes! we will all return to Taj tea house.

Review: Sweetish House Mafia

Posted on Updated on

Cookie café

Cookies, mystery, romance…if you like any of these then read on. Firstly I love the name “Sweetish  House Mafia”. Also loved the mystery of how this anonymous baker created a Twitter account to announce this new cookie delivery service and then every few days would reveal (on twitter and Facebook)  locations on which a Tata Nano with ‘Sweetish House Mafia’ branding would arrive and sell cookies. I loved the mystery of the hunting down of cookies.

Review: Gangstas, Mumbai

Bar. Bar. Themed bar? From the decades old Toto’s Garage with it’s car suspended from the ceiling to the brand new Radio bar with it’s radios, to Mumbai’s very own mafia den…Gangstas. We love the creative attention to detail in the lively themed décor.

Review: The House, Versova

Posted on Updated on

What do I do when I hear of this new, casual, relaxed, fun restaurant that has set up in Versova? Meet up with relaxed, fun girlfriends for a casual drink and bite ofcourse.
The house takes its name very seriously. And so you do feel you are in someones very casually done up intersting bungalow.
