Sunday Brunch at The JW SAHAR Mumbai

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch
I’ve been to JW Sahar on multiple occasions; but this time was special as I was visiting them for their Sunday Brunch.

JW Sahar is known to have one of the best (and also the priciest) Sunday Brunches in the city. It starts at Rs.2700+ and the various pricing options include mocktails, alcohol and champagne respectively.

To give you a glimpse of the whole brunch buffet, I have this video. Do watch it and subscribe to my Youtube channel for more video content.

Out of all the delicious food at the brunch, here are a few things that I tried and loved.

Chaat

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

The brunch has an entire section dedicated to chaat and you will find so many different things – Palak Patta Chaat, Samosa, Dabeli, Ragda Pattice, Pani Puri, Dahi Papdi and lots more. If you love chaat then definitely indulge!

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

Pasta

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

Pick and choose your sauce and veggies or ask a special recommendation from the Chef – the Pasta at JW Sahar doesn’t disappoint. Since this brunch happened to be a Thanksgiving themed one, I got to try their Pumpkin Ravioli. The feel of butter in this was just out of this world. I also indulged in the classic Arrabiata and it was the perfect tangy flavor.

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

Tex Mex

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

I love my tex mex so I indulged in some nachos and also some Quesadilla.

Indian Main Course

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

The one thing that stood out for me in the main course was their Dal Makhani. This was the first time I actually tried it and boy was it good! Creamy, flavorful and very comforting. I also tried the Chhole, Biryani and the Papad variety.

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

If you saw the video, then you’d know that the brunch is massive. Apart from the food mentioned above, you also find a whole section dedicated to Cheese, greens and fresh salad, sushi and Japanese cuisine, Thai food, cold-cuts, sea food and lots more.

But the section that completely stole my heart was the Dessert.

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

You can see the huge variety in this section right from the time you enter JW Cafe. And it’s honestly so beautifully arranged and presented that a part of you would definitely want to pick something up right away. Liqueur filled chocolate bars, cakes, pastries, Indian mithai variety – you will find all of this here! It’s such a massive spread. And it’s not just the quantity of dessert; it’s also the presentation. I mean I’ve seen some of the prettiest looking cupcakes here.

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

Even the Waffle and Pancake station is such a hit. They are undoubtedly one of the best waffles you will find in the city. And you choose an array of toppings – sauces, fruits, sprinkles, brownies, fruit syrups and what not. Enjoy these plain or with some ice cream to finish off a super lavish meal.

JW Sahar Sunday Brunch

So that was it from my visit to the JW Sahar Sunday Brunch. Definitely visit and share your experience with me. And do keep extra room for dessert!

Mango Specials at Sin Marine Plaza

Sin Marine plaza mango menu specials
Head over to Sin Marine Plaza to bid adieu to the king of fruits; albeit quite lavishly!

Sin Marine plaza Mango Menu

Sin Marine Plaza is serving some Mango Specials that you should definitely get your hands on. 

These cost about Rs.375 per serving. And you can find a variety of dishes. I did try out some of the mango specials at Sin Marine Plaza and also liked a few of them. Here is what I tried.

Aam Ka Panna

Sin Marine plaza aam panna

Refreshing, especially in this heat. This is one good aam panna!

Baked Mango Cheese Cake

Sin Marine plaza mango cheese cake

Cheese cake with the goodness of Mango. I quite like the amalgamation of Mascarpone cheese with the sweet and sour flavor from the fruit,

Mango Chocolate Sensation

Sin Marine plaza mango chocolate sensation

A chocolate ball with Mango in it. Hot chocolate sauce is poured on this and watching the ball melt is a delight in itself! And so is eating it. However, for me chocolate and mango as a combination don’t really go.

Mango and Mint Pannacotta

Sin Marine plaza mint mango pannacotta

I didn’t think I’d like this combination, but it was really interesting. Mango custard with hints of mint all around – mostly in the form of mint caviar.

Mango Baklava

Sin Marine plaza mango baklava

This baklava was amazing. And I quite liked the addition of mango in it.

Mango Raspberry Criollo

Sin Marine plaza mango raspberry criollo

Mango in a mousse kinda texture, with a hint of raspberry and loads of white chocolate. This was actually really good. And it didn’t even feel that heavy.

Apart from these, Sin Marine Plaza even has Mango Shake, Mango with Whipped Cream and Ice Cream and also Aamras, served with puris. If you want to get your hands on some Mango-based dessert, I suggest you head right over to Sin Marine Plaza and try these out. And you will definitely find your pick.

Black Dessert now in Mumbai

Icekraft Waffles

My love for dessert took me to Icekraft once again. Honestly, this time it was more curiosity than love.

The Team at Icekraft said that they were introducing Black Dessert – Black Ice Cream and Black Waffles and I just really wanted to try it. So I went there and filmed this video of me trying out Black Dessert. Watch it and I hope you enjoy it.

Like this video? Subscribe to my YouTube here

I hope you enjoyed watching this video from my trip to Icekraft.

So let’s take a look at what I had, once again.

Firstly, BLACK ICE CREAM!

This ice cream tastes as gorgeous as it looks. Somehow, I never associate Black with dessert, but thanks to Icekraft, my opinion stands changed. This tasted amazing – chocolate, fresh cream – I mean what’s not to like!

And then there were these black waffles – which were absolutely delicious too. These felt like a little dark chocolate mixed with orange. I love that combination!

So do you need to worry about the Black in Black Ice Cream – like what is it? Is it safe for consumption? Is it color? So the simple answer to all of this is NO. You don’t need to worry. The Black in Black ice cream is actually activated charcoal. And Activated Charcoal has so many health benefits. Here’s listing a few:

  • Reduces Gas and Bloating
  • Helps alleviate alcohol poisoning and cures hangovers
  • Get’s rid of toxins in the body
  • It’s an all round digestive cleanser

So, now that you are assured that Black Ice Cream is all good, definitely go and indulge yourself in the ones available at Icekraft.

I hope you enjoyed watching the video and reading about everything I ate. What is the weirdest Ice Cream you have eaten? Let me know below!

Also if you want me to review any particular places in the city, then let me know and I will try and visit them for you.

XOXO

Shweta!

Minus 301 Degrees F – Ice Cream Rolls and more

Minus 301 Degrees F
My love for dessert took me to Minus 301 Degrees F in Bandra. They served freshly made ice cream rolls in some pretty interesting flavors. And some other types of dessert as well.

Want to check out exactly what happens at Minus 301 Degrees F? Watch this video!

Subscribe to my YouTube here  

Minus 301 Degrees F has multiple outlets across Mumbai, and this time I visited the one in Bandra. Since it was my first time here and I had already heard so much about their ice cream, I was super excited to try it out.

At Minus 301 Degrees F, you will find a variety of flavors right from fruit to chocolate to some interesting ones like cinnamon, paan and bubblegum. Being a total sucker for paan flavored dessert, I decided to try their Paan Ice Cream rolls. And they were absolutely flavorful. Minty green in color and topped with some dried paan leaves, they totally aped the gulkand and sounf flavors.

Minus 301 Degrees F

Another one that I tried at Minus 301 Degrees F is the Chilli Guava Ice Cream. This one was that nice Peru flavor along with red chilli powder on top. Such a trip down memory lane.

Minus 301 Degrees F

Next I tried their Bubblegum flavor. It was a good mix between a candy floss flavor and a fruity one. I topped it with loads of sprinkles and jelly cubes and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Minus 301 Degrees F

I also tried the Chocolate Hazelnut flavor at Minus 301 Degrees F and this was extremely creamy. Chocolate lovers definitely should try this.

Minus 301 Degrees F

What I like about Minus 301 Degrees F is that their flavor range is interesting. This particular outlet at Linking Road, Bandra does have a good seating area so that takes care of the wait time. And personally, I love watching the whole creation process of these Ice Cream Rolls. Definitely visit them!

Icekraft Oshiwara – Waffles, savories and freshly rolled Ice Cream!

Icekraft Oshiwara
Icekraft Oshiwara has totally caught my eye – there’s something about freshly rolled ice cream that I absolutely enjoy. Not only ice creams, but even their savories, waffles, freakshakes are an absolute delight. 

I tried many different things at Icekraft Oshiwara and quite enjoyed all of it. You can take a look at all the delicious stuff i gorged on while i was there:

To be absolutely honest, I loved everything I had. Fresh and tasty. Take a look!

Now for some tempura. Choose veggies first.

Best.

Look at them waffles
Icekraft Oshiwara
Berry blast 🙂

Overall, everything was really good at Icekraft Oshiwara. The savories are fresh and that itself becomes a major distinguishing factor as compared to several other eateries that serve frozen and merely reheated food.

The waffles are perfectly crunchy and that is super important in the eggless variety. They are a little spongy but honestly that didn’t matter to me. And the toppings are generous and how! The quantity of chocolate chips and nutella is seriously wow!

The ice creams are rolled right in front of you. No artificial flavor or syrups are used. Fruits used are fresh. And their flavor comes through really well. There’s also a massive selection of toppings so you can choose from sprinkles, to fruits, to cereal and so much more.

I highly recommend this place. If, like me you are a vegetarian then you will truly appreciate the variety one can get here. Check them out and also let them know that I sent you 🙂

I hope you enjoyed reading and also watching the video. Definitely hit a subscribe on my YouTube channel. And stay tuned for more posts too. And don’t forget to stay in touch with my food journey – real time! Do follow me on:

Yogurtbay Lower Parel

Yogurtbay Lower Parel
Yogurtbay Lower Parel is a place where you can not only fulfil your Yogurt craving, but also your waffle cravings. I recently tried out their outlet located in Todi Mills and got a little insight into their offerings.

Yogurtbay Lower Parel

At Yogurtbay Lower Parel, you will find a ton of yogurt flavors – ranging from fruity flavors like strawberry and mango, to chocolate and red velvet. And even some exquisite ones like tiramisu, blueberry, oreo cheesecake and more. So here’s the flavors that I tried and what I thought of them:

Vanilla

Tastes pretty similar to vanilla ice cream, but of course feels a lot lighter. And in my opinion creamier too.

Oreo Cheese Cake

This is a creamy oreo flavored yogurt. A great replacement if you are craving a full on oreo cookie dessert.

Really Strawberry

Feels like a fresh strawberry ice cream.

Chocolate

This one is sugar free – so if you are looking for that kind of an option you definitely have a chocolate one available.

Blueberry Cheesecake

This is my favorite flavor from here – exactly like a good blueberry cheesecake should be. Definitely try it. It is their fastest running flavor.

You can even select toppings of your choice to go with your yogurt – these can be fresh fruits like kiwi and berries, or just some chocolate chips. Or you can have some fun with sprinkles, jujubes and jellies.

Yogurtbay Lower Parel

I enjoyed this Chocolate yogurt topped with some gems, some chocolate chips and a whole lot of jujubes.

The Yogurtbay Lower Parel is 100% vegetarian. Even their waffles are eggless.

Yogurtbay Lower Parel

To be honest, the my experience with the waffles at yogurtbay wasn’t all that top notch. I tried their belgian chocolate waffle which is just covered in chocolate of all forms. The waffles feel slightly chewy. I also tried the Nutella one – it has some white chocolate, almond chips and some caramelized sugar. This one is quite nice – only if the nutella were a little more generous I would definitely enjoy it more. For vegetarian waffles there are definitely more places that I would rather go to. I will give it to them though for their presentation – waffle on a stick. Makes it pretty convenient to eat.

Yogurtbay Lower Parel

So that was it from my visit to Yogurtbay Lower Parel. I do really recommend their yogurt. Do try it out if you get a chance.

Papacream Oshiwara – Video & Review

Papacream Oshiwara
Papacream Oshiwara needs to be your destination for amazing ice cream and dessert if you are in and around Andheri. They recently launched their outlet here and it was such a full house when I visited. 

Here’s a video tour of Papacream Oshiwara


Subscribe to my YouTube here  

So what is Papacream Oshiwara all about? They are super famous for their liquid nitrogen ice cream which is pretty much made in front of you. The ingredients are fresh and they do some pretty good flavours too. Their standard flavours include Belgian Chocolate, Strawberry, Espresso, Sitaphal and their premium ones include some unique ones like Tiramisu, Salted Caramel and Bubblegum Candy floss. You will also find sorbets. Their Pani Puri Sorbet and Hummus Ice Cream are all over Instagram right now!

Papacream Oshiwara

I ended up trying the Cookiewich – this is essentially a cookie sandwich with Belgian Chocolate ice cream in between 2 chocolate chip cookies with fruit loops, caramel sauce and hot fudge. The cookies can feel slightly hard but the Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream inside along with fruit loops is such a heavenly combo.

Papacream Oshiwara

Papacream Oshiwara

I also tried their Belgian Waffle Sundae and it was delicious! They have bubble waffles in this which can feel so fluffy and light and that combined with chocolate ice cream, hot fudge, chocolate chips, caramel and cream can be so heavenly. I absolutely recommend this!

Papacream Oshiwara

I definitely can’t wait to visit Papacream once more and try out more stuff from them. Their new outlet in Andheri is surely something that you should try out. And if you are a SOBO person then their flagship store at Churchgate is still there.

The Belgian Waffle Co., Carter Road

The Belgian Waffle Co.

Review – The Belgian Waffle Co.

Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Belgian Waffle Co. is a cozy little place on Carter road. It was my first visit here and I wanted to have a nice warm chocolate filled waffle.
The Belgian Waffle Co.
I tried their chocolate overload waffle. It took about 10-15 minutes to get ready. But was totally worth the wait!
The Belgian Waffle Co.
Nutella, cocoa powder, powdered sugar and lots of chocolate, sandwiched between half a waffle. Delicious is an understatement!
The Belgian Waffle Co.
The waffle was dense yet not over done. And not chewy at all. So much chocolate in it obviously tasted spectacular! And I got some vanilla ice cream with it too.
The Belgian Waffle Co.
Absolutely recommend this. I can’t wait to go and have more!
