Review: Estella

Posted on

By a happy coincidence, I write from Australia and I’m also about to review a restaurant which is claimed to be Mumbai’s very first  Modern Australian restaurant. I’ve been feasting my way through this magnificent country and been back over ten times. So, I was really excited to try Estella.

Gaggan Anand, Tim Brooke Webb, Helen Pietrini. Steven Ciobo (Minister of Tourism) and Charles Reed at the worlds 50 best, Melbourne.

Stop press. Our very own Indian Gaggan Anand is blazing global headlines. His Bangkok based restaurant is crowned “Asia’s best” and seventh best in the world.  I write from the high-octane excitement of the high-ceilinged historic Royal Exhibition hall, Melbourne. Here the worlds most prestigious, glittering Oscars of gastronomy The worlds 50 best  are in progress. The air is crackling with excitement and every square inch is bristling with culinary star power. The hon’ble minister of Tourism Steven Ciobo, several other dignitaries and the worlds most celebrated chefs have flown in. For the past fifteen years, The Worlds 50 best been a mega force and credible guide to global gastronomy  and to gastro-tourism. It is helmed by the dynamic Charles Reed and powered by the dream team of Tim Brooke Webb, Helene Pietrini and William Drew. They’ve  held the awards in Melbourne for the first time and Australia is playing magnificent host, with it’s fabulous food and wine. I am getting high not just on Australia’s spectacular produce and restaurants  but also on Gaggan being crowned the seventh best in the world. Jai Ho!

Review: Glocal Junction

Posted on

Mixed marriages on our plates… an increasing trend in many a Mumbai restaurant. Be it tandoori Tikka in  erotic union with  taco (Social’s “tikka taco”) Gulabjamun cross fertilised with doughnut (Bombay Canteen’s gulabnut) etc. And “Glocal Junction” proudly announces its “global local” mixed breed pedigree in it’s name.
