Jamjar Diner Andheri

Jamjar Diner Pink sauce Pasta
Jamjar Diner has been on my wish list for a while and I recently had the opportunity to head here to try out their Summer Specials.

Jamjar Diner Jacket Potatoes with Mac and cheese

Located in Andheri, Jamjar Diner serves burgers, pizza, pasta, hot dogs, hand churned ice-creams and a lot more. Let’s straight jump in to what I had here.

Masala Chai

Jamjar Diner Masala chai

Even if it’s summer, I do need a minimum of 1 cup of my poison. And they served me some good, kadak Masala Chai here.

Nachos

Jamjar Diner Nachos

I definitely recommend ordering the Nachos here. The chips are super crisp and are a welcome change from so many other places that serve packed Corn Chips. And they come with Salsa, Beans, Jalapeno and some onions and tomatoes as well. The salsa is nice and tangy and the jalapeno adds that tinge of hot flavor.

Jacket Potatoes Mac & Cheese

Jamjar Diner Jacket Potatoes

I love potatoes and cheese and so I was completely sold on this one! Skinned Potato chunks, with a generous layer of Mac and Cheese on top. This dish can get quite heavy.

Pink Sauce Pasta

Jamjar Diner Pasta

I loved the sauce and the texture of the Pasta. The only hitch was there was too much of Chilli Flakes on top. Apart from that, it totally worked for me.

Chilli Garlic Pizza

Jamjar Diner Pizza

This one’s spicy – chillies and garlic all over a pizza. However, the taste of burnt garlic with the Pizza sauce and cheese feels amazing.

Old School Pizza

Jamjar Diner Chilli Garlic pizza

This comes with onion, capsicum and mushroom as toppings. Pretty simple, yet delicious. Their Pizza is thin crust and done to perfection.

Protein Power Smoothie

Dark Chocolate and Banana always work as a combination for me. And this one is no exception. This feels really wholesome and to be honest can be a meal in itself.

Berry Good Morning

Jamjar Diner Berry Good Morning

Mixed berries, Chia seeds, almonds, bananas among other things. If you love berries then this one’s a must try.

Flower Pot

Jamjar Diner Flower Pot

One indulgent flower pot this! Brownie, Oreo Cookie Crumbs, Marshmallows – basically all things nice. Highly recommended!

Jamjar Diner Interiors

Jamjar Diner Earthquake theme

Apart from good food, Jamjar Diner also boasts of really interesting interiors. They’ve tried to keep the old American Diner vibe – – which basically entails a whole lot of wooden furniture, grungy music and of course a vintage Jukebox. And they also have a cozy open air area, which can be quite nice in the evenings. And don’t miss the earthquake theme that they have going on while you take the stairs to head to their rooftop seating. It can be quite trippy! They also bake their own fresh bread everyday and you can even purchase it while you’re here.

Vortex South

Vortex South Kebab
Vortex South is yet another name in the all vegetarian bars that South Mumbai seems to be buzzing with.

The interiors are pretty interesting. It kinda seemed to me that Vortex South could even be a cool co-working space during the day- at least it seemed that way from their design. I came here for dinner recently and was quite happy with my food. Here is a sneak peek of everything I tried at Vortex South.

Tomato Basil Soup

Vortex South Tomato Basil Soup

If I see this on the menu, chances are that I’m trying it out! And it wasn’t a let down at all. Good consistency and flavor.

Assorted Kebab Platter

Vortex South Paneer

The staff at Vortex South was kind enough to serve an assorted kebab platter to me, so that I would get to sample the most. And i liked a lot of these.

The Cornobell was amazing. It was a seekh kebab with corn and bell peppers.

Cheddar Babies were delicious too. Basically baby potatoes with cheese and a heavy basil flavor.

Kaveri – this was paneer tikka with a massive curry leaf flavor.

Khatta is the new spice – a mildly sour kind of twist to paneer tikka.

There were more too. But the ones listed above were the best.

Cheese Burst Pizza

Vortex South Cheese Burst

You can see the cheese burst right here – it was a total overdose of cheese.

And the amount of veggie toppings was seriously generous! The sauce was slightly home-style, but honestly I didn’t mind it.

Masala Pasta

Vortex South Masala Pasta

I’ve never really enjoyed a white sauce pasta. And call me Desi, but this one with all the right masalas totally worked for me 🙂

Triple Schezwan Rice

Vortex South Triple Schezwan

This was amazing – that proper old-style Indian-Chinese flavor was so spot on!

Sizzling Brownie

Vortex South sizzling brownie

The brownie didn’t feel old, but in fact was perfectly warm. And the sheer size of the brownie chunk – it was enormous!

Berry Mist

Vortex South Cocktails

This is an all berry drink – different berry juices and slushes together. So it has a very tarty taste – something I love.

Lava FlowVortex South Mocktails

This is like a Banana and Coconut Cream drink. If you love these, then you will enjoy this.

So that was it from my visit to Vortex South. Do try out the place if you are in the area.

Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for my next post. XOXO!

Vegetarian Food at Broaster Chicken Bandra

Broaster Chicken Bandra Vegetarian
If you’re a vegetarian and heading to Broaster Chicken Bandra, then let me guide you on a few things that you can order 🙂

Top Vegetarian Recommendations at Broaster Chicken Bandra

Butter Garlic Potatoes

Broaster Chicken Bandra Butter Garlic Fries

Fries tossed with a generous amount of butter and garlic. Butter and garlic together is an enticing combination for me. I also love fries so together this tastes really good.

Tex Mex

Broaster Chicken Bandra Tex Mex

Full on nachos kind of flavor – jalapeno, olives, tomatoes, onions, salsa. Toss some fries in this, and that probably explains this dish! Eat these really quick as the fries become a little bit soggy because of all the veggies. But overall, really flavorful.

Pink Sauce Pasta

Broaster Chicken Bandra Pink Sauce Pasta

Just Pasta and Sauce – no veggies in this one. The sauce is neither too creamy nor to tangy. Pretty good flavor. It’s served with 2 pieced of garlic bread which was nice and crisp.

The Brick Shake

Broaster Chicken Bandra Dessert

A cup made out of chocolate filled with chocolate bricks! And if that wasn’t enough already, you will also find some more mousse kind of chocolate inside. Very indulgent!

Raspberry Shake

Broaster Chicken Bandra Raspberry Shake

A very no nonsense kinda shake. Comes in a beer bottle though!

Chulbul Soda

Broaster Chicken Bandra Chulbul Soda

Perfect for a hot summer afternoon. It’s their version of Masala Thumbs Up.

Broaster Chicken Bandra Reclamation

As a vegetarian, you shouldn’t worry about coming to this place. Yes the name and a whole lot of the menu spells CHICKEN but there is enough and more good vegetarian food that you can have here. The ambience is quite rustic – high chairs and wooden tables. They have a decent selection of music too. All in all, quite a good hangout. And even the food is pretty good.

Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for my next post. XOXO!

The Yellow Chilli Dadar – New in Town!

Yellow Chilli Dadar
The Yellow Chilli Dadar is Chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s offering to this part of Mumbai. Dadar has a variety of interesting places to eat, and this one located in Star Mall is definitely a place that needs to be on your must visit list

Adapting to the area and the people is what The Yellow Chilli Dadar promises. It was very interesting for me to be a part of the launch gig of The Yellow Chilli Dadar and in this blog post I’m going to take you through my experience.

Yellow Chilli DadarFirstly, let me start by paying my due respect to Chef Sanjeev Kapoor. He literally became the star for anyone with a keen sense of trying out recipes or learning new tips and tricks in the kitchen. I still remember my mom watching Khana Khazana and trying so many of his recipes. And it was the first time, at this event that I got to see this inspiring figure in person. He is a man of many words, ever joyful and extremely humble. And I’m probably one of the lucky ones to watch him in his musical element as well.

Yellow Chilli Dadar

Yellow Chilli Dadar

Coming to The Yellow Chilli Dadar, it’s a place where you will definitely find delicious food to suit local flavors. So things like a Batata Vada Bao (a bao instead of a pav), a Misal Bruschetta (misal on a toast) and even interesting twists like a Grape and Strawberry Sangria are some of the things that you can expect here.

As you can see from the pictures, I’ve had yet another hog fest. Items that I absolutely loved were the Dahi Bhalla, Sarson Ka Saag, Adraki Dhaniya Paneer, Nizami Tarkari Biryani, Gajar ka Halwa and lots more.

Definitely expect a huge round of over-eating when you are at The Yellow Chilli. Their food is quite tasty and I’m sure there will be many dishes that you will find repeat worthy.

All in all I had a great time attending the launch. And it was really sweet of the Team at The Yellow Chilli Dadar to present this special recipe book and this bottle of pickle that I’m going to relish with my meals.

I quite enjoyed my time at 1Above. If you are looking for a cool rooftop place to hang out around Lower Parel then this can be a great option. Their huge screens definitely make it a pick for watching some great sport, while you enjoy some good food and drinks. They do have a tiny indoor seating section, which seemed to be closed when I visited. All in all, a great place.

Thalassa Mumbai – Romantic and Delicious!

Thalassa Mumbai
Thalassa Mumbai is a fairly new eatery opened up in Khar. The Thalassa from Goa is iconic and it’s indeed a pleasure to welcome the same brand in my own city.

Thalassa Mumbai

I recently visited Thalassa Mumbai and am completely in love with the place. The beautifully done entrance is something I just couldn’t take my eyes off. And because I went in the evening, I could see their romantic dim lights that go really well with their white and blue theme color scheme.

Thalassa Mumbai

Seating wise they have all kinds of arrangements – right from a cozy table for two, to really huge cabanas. Their seating area includes 2 outdoor sections and one a.c section.

Thalassa Mumbai

In terms of food, the Thalassa in Goa is known for it’s sea food specialities and meat varieties. And also probably limited vegetarian options. However, the Thalassa Mumbai has equal amount of options for both vegetarians and sea food lovers. They offer varieties of Greek and Mediterranean food which can be really delicious.

I pretty much loved everything I had here. Check it out!

Watermelon and feta salad

Tzatziki

Spaghetti Napolitan

Tiramisu

Special mention for their Tiramisu – which is literally oozing of coffee liqueur and is really nice and creamy. Most certainly you should order this! Even the Tzatziki which is a cucumber and garlic dip is something that can be so simple yet so delicious. And it’s served with warm pita bread which feels really good.

Definitely hit up Thalassa Mumbai to try out some delicious food and also enjoy their vibe. It’s a beautifully calm place. I can imagine the Goa one being really gorgeous because of the location itself. But Thalassa Mumbai is definitely a notch above a lot of pretentious places out there. SugarSpiceNice recommended!

Chill Scenes at Penthouzz Kandivali

Penthouzz Kandivali makes for an awesome rooftop hangout, especially in this small amount of pleasant Mumbai weather. If you are in the suburbs, and need a place for sheesha, cocktails and some finger food and of course, great music then Penthouzz can totally be your spot.

I recently checked out Penthouzz Kandivali and to be very honest, I ended up having a really good time. I went on a Wednesday while they were hosting a Karaoke night.

FBAI Soiree at Cafe Mojo

FBAI Soiree
The FBAI Soiree is an event where foodies from all  over the city get together for a rather chilled out evening. Of course, it is but natural for us to be clicking away to glory; but the sheer number of people you meet at this event makes it so special. This is my first FBAI Soiree and I definitely think that these kind of meet-ups go a long way in shaping the ever-growing food community. So kudos to the entire FBAI team for that.

img_5412

The FBAI Soiree was held at Cafe Mojo – new restaurant located in Mahakali, Andheri (E). Cafe Mojo did turn out to be the perfect venue – because of the sheer number of people, the place needed to be pretty spacious and accommodating. They have an indoor bar area, a small outdoor dinner area and a spacious rooftop kinda area with sheesha as well.

img_5407

I ended up sampling a few of the vegetarian dishes while I was here and these were pretty good. Here’s what I tried:

3C

FBAI Soiree

These were Chilly Cheese Corn balls. Not the melt in your mouth variety but felt pretty wholesome. I ate way too many of these!

Grilled Pineapple

FBAI Soiree

I absolutely love grilled pineapple – the sweet and slightly sour pineapple flavor in a spicy kinda, Indian sauce.

Vegetarian Pizza

FBAI Soiree

These were mini pizza slices with capsicum, bell pepper, onion and loads of cheese, of course. And they had some really strong pepper going on as well. In fact the pepper made this pizza pretty hot!

This place has a really attractive bar. And you absolutely cannot miss their beer tap which is placed on almost every table. The music that was played was pretty good as well. It seems to be a place to unwind with drinks, music and sheesha and a little food, after a long day.

I would love to know your favorite place to unwind. Do leave me a comment.

Pestofied Cottage cheese

Foodgasm Bandra
Pesto and basil flavored paneer chunks. So soft and totally melt in your mouth! The onion and peppers also taste delicious.

Turkish Punjabi

Foodgasm Bandra
This is apparently as local to Turkey as sandwich is to Mumbai! Filled with spinach and cheese, this stuff is really good.

Quinoa biryani

Foodgasm Bandra
This is all biryani – with boondi raita and everything. Only difference – Quinoa instead of rice. And trust me when I say that Quinoa doesn’t taste better than this!

Baked pumpkin and feta Fusili

Foodgasm Bandra
Ok – now I’m not kidding but this has a slight Maggi kinda taste. And I’m not complaining.

Power Shot

Foodgasm Bandra
Looking for a smoothie with that nice homely feel? Then this is your power shot! Filled with banana, almonds, melon, dates, milk and honey.
Coolant with a kick

Swati Snacks, Nariman Point

Swati Snacks
Nariman Point just got a lot more interesting for me because one of my most favorite places is now there – Swati Snacks. I have visited the Tardeo outlet so many times and honestly any time I need comfort food or just a place where I’m really wanting to grab a good meal, I end up going here.  So I was quite happy when I was invited to check out the Nariman Point Swati Snacks because it’s a new place with that same delicious food.

My visit to Swati Snacks at Nariman Point has been captured in this video. I would love it if you check it out.

Subscribe to my YouTube here  

I ate a lot of awesome stuff on my visit to Swati. Here are a few pictures from all of the yummy stuff I hogged.

Sithaphal Ice-cream

Swati Snacks

This outlet of Swati Snacks is a lot more bigger than the Tardeo one. However the food and service stays the same – EXCEPTIONAL. If you are looking at going to Swati Snacks in a bigger group then this outlet is ideal. When I spoke to the management they told me that this particular outlet is quite similar to the Ahmedabad one.

If you’re coming here by car then you can park inside the Dalamal Towers compound or the Pay and Park in the area. The fact that Swati Snacks doesn’t have their own valet parking is kind of taken care of by this. They do have a special facility of an automatic chair for the specially abled and this kind of wheelchair accessibility provision is something you rarely ever see in restaurants in Mumbai. I would definitely count this as a major plus.

So that was it from my visit to Swati Snacks Nariman Point. I hope you enjoyed reading and watching.
