Its one of those meaningful coincidences: I write from the global capital of patisserie, Paris (here every pastry has a pedigree). And I write about one of India’s greatest patissieurs, Sanjana Patel. The only difference is that Sanjana’s latest Bandra café, La Folie Lab is not just about desserts, she has added on a savory menu too.

No two ways about it. We’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for this two month old seafood “Bastian”.

I’m about to sing praises about a restaurant located in Bandra-Kurla’s shopping mall. It’s Chinese, it’s moderately priced and the food is tasty and reliable, just the way we like it.

Star Anise, or (to put it more accurately) “Star Anees” is the kind of passion driven, stand alone, small café that I love to cheer on.

I love Bandra bar bar (sorry for that cheap pun). And, happily leading this recent new spate of bar openings is Radio bar. I had been wanting to go there ever since it opened but then one night
( clearly my lucky night, not only did I meet Shahrukh Khan at Rana kapoor’s dinner) but also Manasi Scott (who was anchoring that event). This gorgeous hippie-heart diva, singer, songwriter, actor with music in her veins and an international hit on the world charts accepted my impromptu invite. She made for the perfect guest to check out Radio Bar.
Usually trying to please everyone results in disaster. But here somehow the 28 year young owner Aarathi Arambhan brings her family’s offshore catering experience to use and sails through with a lighthearted, well-priced experience: …happily.
Perfect marriages. Here goes… I dedicate the review of Bandra’s brand new “Fatty bao” to perfect marriages. Reasons? Fatty Bao performs the perfect marriage between serious, sometimes challenging food to an ultra-casual, spontaneous dining ethos, as it also weds quality to fun.
