Romano’s JW Mariott Mumbai

Romano's JW Mariott
Special occasions call for an even more special celebration. So I decided to head to Romano’s JW Mariott to celebrate a really special day.

Romano's JW Mariott

We came to deciding Romano’s JW Mariott because we wanted to eat some good Italian food. And going by the looks of this place and whatever reviews I read, this seemed to be worth a try.

The entrance does give you a major Italian feel and because I visited them during the holiday season, the place was beautifully decorated. We had a reservation and the staff assisted us to our table.

The place is beautiful – open kitchen which is common to a lot of true Italian places. And the seating and ambience does spell a nice cozy dinner.

My first order was Minestrone Di Verdure. This had a ton of pesto in it, something which I’m gradually beginning to like. Minestrone soup does not always have pesto, but I quite enjoyed it in this.

With soup you get a portion of their fresh bread which was definitely something. It was a nice whole grain loaf which I quite enjoyed with some olive oil.

Next I wanted to try their Margherita Pizza – which for me is the truest test of good Italian Pizza. And it was definitely something! The pizza base was perfect – i mean slightly crunchy on the sides and a little softer towards the center. And the cheese was top notch. And so was the pomodoro sauce – just perfectly tangy. And topped with basil leaves which lend a subtle, yet noticeable flavor.

Then I moved straight to dessert and I was recommended the Vulcano Di Cioccolato which was a soft centered chocolate cake with some vanilla ice cream on the side. It was served warm, and if you have been following me you know that warm chocolate is my weakness. This was definitely one of the best one’s I’ve had.

Mockingbird Cafe Mumbai – Review & Recommendations

Mockingbird Cafe Mumbai
I’ve passed Mockingbird Cafe Mumbai so many times and yet I managed to go there only very recently. If you are passing by that Churchgate road in the evening or night, you will definitely notice the quaintly lit Mockingbird Cafe. It looks really pretty from the outside.  And the food is pretty good too.

Here’s a little video from my visit to Mockingbird Cafe Mumbai

Mockingbird Cafe Mumbai has a vibe of it’s own – wooden interiors, witty wall posts, great music and delicious food. When I was here, they did have the Hummus Festival going on in association with Chef’s Basket and because of this I did get to try out some hummus as well.

I started my meal with the hummus platter. This was essentially 3 different types of Hummus by Chef’s Basket along with some fresh and crispy Pita and Lavash from Mockingbird Cafe.

The first type of Hummus I tried was the garlic one. I would say that the garlic flavor was pretty prominent. However, I did feel that it lacked that nice creamy texture which for me is pretty essential for Hummus.

The next one was a Pesto flavored Hummus. Strong Pesto flavor – if you like that flavor then you will definitely enjoy this.

And the last one was the red pepper Hummus. It was actually the one that I liked the most. It did have that slight fiery after taste.

Next I tried the Mexican Hummus Salad. This had peppers, cherry tomatoes, green and black olives and lettuce and topped with some basil leaves. It had the garlic hummus mixed in it so there was a pretty mild but lingering flavor from that. A generous amount of black pepper was sprinkled on top which did add it’s own element to the salad.

Next I tried something called Mix Cheese Chilly. These were balls made of paneer, Mozarella and Cheddar cheese together. These fried balls were tossed in a hot Sri Racha Sauce which did have a mild hint of sweetness as well. Even some onions and peppers were tossed in there which did have a nice flavor of their own. I quite enjoyed this dish – if you eat the pops quickly you will enjoy their crunchiness. And the hot and spicy flavor of the sauce is easily toned down by all the cheese.

I also tried their stone baked Margherita Pizza. The sauce here was nice and tangy and the fluffy cheese and that sauce together felt like an awesome combination. The crust to me felt a tad bit chewy, but to be honest the sauce was way too delicious to notice that!

I also tried some of their Spaghetti Arrabiatta. Now this was literally perfect! Well done Spaghetti with the perfect slightly spicy, slightly tangy tomato sauce. It’s such a crucial dish, but not everyone can do it this well. I will definitely recommend this dish to any pasta lover!

Mockingbird Cafe Mumbai

I also enjoyed some drinks along with my meal. One of them was Summery Melon – fresh watermelon juice, some cranberry syrup and a hint of lime. It wasn’t over sweet but in fact extremely refreshing. You can also feel a tad bit of apple juice in it. I also tried another drink called Paradise. It had a very peculiar raspberry flavor which hits you almost instantly. It’s ingredients also include passion fruit juice, orange juice and apple juice. It’s topped with some mint leaves as well.

Finally for dessert, I indulged in some Flourless Chocolate Cake with some Vanilla Ice Cream. This comes slightly warm and is drizzled with chocolate all around. It’s not all that gooey but pretty delicious. The warmth from the cake and the cool ice cream really blend well together.

Mockingbird Cafe Mumbai

So that was it from my visit to the Mockingbird Cafe Mumbai and also my tryst with the Hummus Festival by Chef’s Basket. It was an absolute pleasure being hosted by Mockingbird Cafe and I hope to be back soon to try more of their food.

Caffe Primo Review

Caffe Primo
Craving Italian food can take me places! And this time it took me to Caffe Primo – an Italian restaurant in the Fort Area in Mumbai. This place is all vegetarian. The interiors are pretty cute too. Want to know how the food was? Then watch this!

If I were to summarize my experience at Caffe Primo, it would be that it’s a decent effort to get some good Italian food going. Their soup was lovely. The pizza was too crispy. The bruschetta was a decadent mixture, yet delicious. Tiramisu for a vegetarian one it’s a great effort.

For someone who needs a vegetarian only place, Caffe Primo can be a great option. Not too many places in the Fort area are vegetarian only. So that is a major plus point for Caffe Primo.

The interiors of Caffe Primo are also well done. You get a nice cafe kind of vibe and at the same time the place isn’t too tiny and compact either. There’s plenty of seating available and if you are in large groups, you won’t find it difficult to accomodate yourself at all.

I would visit the place again, but obviously I’ll be pretty cautious about the pizza I order! And may be I would even repeat all the stuff I loved out here.

So that was it from my visit to Caffe Primo. I hope you enjoyed watching and reading this. My food journey is pretty interesting and updated all the time on my Social Media. So make sure you are following me there. Here are the links:
