Recipe: SUN & MOON

Posted on

Sometimes a restaurant experience extends to  more than just the food.  It’s drawbacks become it’s charms… its tiny home-style space, its one man service,  generous portions of the Korean owner-chef Sun’s (not sure if I’ve got her name right) blazing lustily spiced food.

Review: BOMBAY VINTAGE

Posted on

“… yeh hai Bombay meri jaan”the old hindi song echoed in my ears, when I lunched at Bombay Vintage. It did so  not just because I was lunching at a restaurant which serves up Bombay’s melting pot cuisines but even more because of my lovable guests (one was my #foodieblinddate) .

Rivaaz tucked into a four star hotel surprises with  it’s robust and tasty Moghlai fare and it’s generous portions and affordable pricing (average meal for two Rs 1200). Should you happen to be in the vicinity… it s a must visit.

Review: Asian Town

Posted on Updated on

The rise and the rise of Asian cuisine; that’s the one trend that continues to dominate our restaurantscape. Not only have I tracked it over the past three decades in Mumbai but have recently watched it internationally too.

Review: MANGO TREE

Posted on

Juhu is the latest. Bangkok, Hong Kong, China, Tokyo, Manila, London and now Mumbai. Mango Tree put down it’s roots in Hotel Horizon,  in March this year. As a rule, I’m wary of  chain restaurants. So did a thorough and systematic check out over two meals spread over three months.

Review: HAMMER & SONG

Posted on

It’s high energy. Yet, it’s comforting. Open all day, it offers the comfort of an old family friend, with whom all generations are comfy. At night it morphs  into a swinging star. Having attended a birthday dinner here, I checked it out subsequently at lunch with a charming mother and daughter gourmet duo.

Vegan? Vegetarian? Jain? Gluten free? Sugarfree? You name it, they got it  Keto ? Voila! a whole menu.  I’m a Flexitarian and never on a diet. But I’d still return to Bandra’s Farmers café for a tasty, guilt free, moderately priced meal.

Review: TYPHOON SHELTER

Posted on Updated on

Kudos for the meticulously and dramatically themed  Typhoon shelter ambience (light and sound projection et al) but the menu needs fine tuning and it also zig zags to include many a usual suspect.
