Bombay Biryani – A vegetarian’s guide!

Bombay Biryani
Bombay Biryani is located in Hill Road, Bandra. If you know Jimme’s Kitchen then it’s right next to it. It’s a pretty new restaurant serving kebabs, biryani and various other items. Being a vegetarian I was slightly apprehensive to visit this place but it was a pretty good experience.

So here is my guide – a vegetarians’ guide on what you should be eating at Bombay Biryani!

Hara Bhara Kebabs

Bombay Biryani

These are fried to perfection – the right kind of crispy and crunchy; not even slightly overdone in any way. I did feel that they went chewy after a while, but that could be because of the longish photo session we had with them! These are served with a coriander chutney on the side which is super tasty. And it also comes with some salad. These Hara Bhara Kebabs topped with some cheese is just what you need to start off an awesome meal at Bombay Biryani!

Cheese Schezwan Naan

This dish here is absolutely recommended. Naan filled with cheese and schezwan sauce. It doesn’t get more Indo-Chinese than this! It does taste pretty delicious. The warm naan, melting cheese and spicy schezwan. Combination alert!!

Paneer Biryani

Almost feels like paneer tikka and fragrant rice. The Biryani doesn’t feel dry at all. In fact the masala is spread out fairly well. The paneer chunks are soft. Overall quite nice!

Subz Dum Biryani

Bombay Biryani

Loads of vegetables – carrots, french beans and more in a spicy masala. It does have a super strong garlic after taste but honestly, I quite enjoyed it.

Both the biryanis were serves with raita that had some jeera powder and some garlic. First time for me trying out raita with garlic – but pretty good.

Mumbaiya Santra

Bombay Biryani

This tangy orange drink had a taste of pure santra meets jaljeera. If you enjoye these kind of flavors ask for this one.

Salted Caramel Phirni

Bombay Biryani

I’m honestly not the biggest fan of Phirni but this one seemed pretty nice and creamy. And the Salted Caramel was definitely that nice alternate flavor that enhance a sweet dish. Do try this.

Overall their food is slightly spicy, at least for me. So you can either enjoy it as is, or ask for slightly lower spiced dishes. All in all, I quite enjoyed my food from Bombay Biryani.

Bombay Biryani can be a good home delivery option. Hit them up to check if they deliver in your area.

Chaayos Lower Parel

Chaayos Lower Parel
Chaayos Lower Parel almost became a convenient ordering in and chai place for me. But off late, the quality seems to be a bit off the radar. Not just the quality – even the overall taste.

So here’s a summary of my most recent order from Chaayos Lower Parel.

From the Zomato exclusive winter menu, Kulhad Pav Bhaji

Chaayos Lower Parel

It comes in this earthen kulhad. And the portion size is pretty good. You get 2 Kulhad’s and 2 pavs.

vChaayos Lower Parel

The ingredients however feel aweful. It tastes like an over masaledaar subzi and that nice buttery taste that needs to be there in the bhaji seems missing. They do give you Amul Butter to go with it. But that’s not enough to cut it! And the bhaji had some peanuts in it! Which didn’t feel good at all. Even the Pav was super dry and almost crumbly.

Chaayos Lower Parel

Homestyle Upma – another one from the winter menu.

This just feels dry and mealy. No substance to it at all! It has some basic vaghaar and that’s about it. Just like a couple of really fine pieces of tomato and thats all.

Poha

Chaayos Lower Parel

I used to honestly quite like the poha from Chaayos earlier. It used to seem pretty hot and fresh and was quite tasty as well. This I would say was homestyle poha – fluffy and delicious. But what I got this time was just poha that was totally moist and really aweful tasting. Once poha is over cooked or re heated too many times it kind of gives away and that’s what this one felt like. And it’s not because I home delivered it – I’ve had poha from them via delivery almost all the time.

Desi Chai

Chaayos Lower Parel

Thankfully this they still do right. Desi Chai, chose kadak patti, dudh kam and adrak, mint and tulsi for a slightly nippy evening. Felt good after all the other stuff bombed! And their chai packaging is pretty impressive too. Carton kettle with a plastic twist cap and inside is another almost flat bottle kind of holder. And the chai has no leaks or spills. They do charge an additional 30 bucks for packaging though!

So this was my most recent experience with Chaayos. I have rated them earlier on Zomato very highly (4.5) and now I’d change that to 3. To be honest, their chai got them to 3!

I hope you enjoyed reading. And let’s be in touch for more food stories.

Indi Kitchen, Lower Parel

Indi Kitchen

Review – Indi Kitchen!

Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Indi kitchen delivers Indian food to your doorstep. What’s good is that you can customize your meal as per whatever you feel like having – like you can choose between rice / rotis and the veggies you want and also the gravy that you would like. In that sense I think this is one of the first few doing it for Indian food..which is good. 
Recommend:
Paneer lasooni appetizer 
This is perfection – soft paneer chunks with onion and capsicum, marinated in a very tasty green coating.

Aloo kulcha
Excellent aloo filling – right amount of spices. I ate it slightly cold but couldn’t stop myself from hogging on this!

Chocolate samosa
Mini samosas with a supremely generous amount of chocolate in between. Eat these super hot.

Chocolate Samosa
Triple teekha gravy and paneer 
This one is actually quite tasty – you can just dip some naan in as a sauce / chutney and have it. But only those who love spicy food can handle this.

Jeera rice
Not just jeera, but flavored with a whole lot of other spices. Quite nice

They also send a lovely Indian style salad – onion, carrot etc with lime and some spices.

Indizza – The Delivery Kitchen, Lower Parel

Indizza – The Delivery Kitchen – Review

Rating – ⭐⭐⭐ and half
Indizza - The Delivery Kitchen
The Meal Box
I recently tried Indizza for a quick lunch via home delivery from Zomato. I tried their lunch meal – it came with steamed rice, dal makhni, paneer makhani, a roti and some Papad.

Their paneer makhani was actually really good – consistency was great, paneer was soft. Only thing it was overly sweet. Almost sharbat!

Paneer Makhani
The dal makhni had too much masala. I personally am not too fond of dishes with too much masala..especially garam masala kind of taste. So I didn’t care too much for this.

Roti, steamed rice everything was pretty decent.
