Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant

Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant
Sapphire vegetarian restaurant is located in The Emerald hotel in Juhu.

You will find a wide variety of dishes across cuisines at Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant. This includes Mexican, Italian and even Greek food!

I recently visited this place and here is what I tried:

Manchow Soup

Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant

For me a good manchow soup is one that has the intense hot flavour from garlic and ginger. This one kind of lacked that. Also the fried noodles served with the soup had a slightly off taste – the kind that is when you have when the items are a little beyond their shelf life.

Veg Crispy

Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant

This is an extremely appetising Chinese starter. It’s fried vegetables coated with maida and sweet and spicy sauces. Again this lacked that zingy taste and honestly the vegetables weren’t crispy at all.

Hara Bhara Kebabs

Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant

These made up for everything! The Hara Bhara Kebabs at Sapphire are a must have.

Sugarcane Juice

Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant

They actually serve really good, fresh sugarcane juice. It’s got some ginger and lime which I love in a sugarcane juice. A welcome change from the over sweet fruit juices and artificial syrups that everyone serves.

Masala Papad

Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant

Nothing like deep fried, crunchy papad with tons of tomato and onion and chilli powder!

Veg Subz Biryani

Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant

Fried onion, carrots, peas, french beans, paneer and corn – all of these and the fragrant rice made for a pretty decent biryani. It’s served with some vegetable raita.

Gulab Jamun

Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant

These were indeed delicious. The perfect texture and taste.

If you visit Sapphire Vegetarian Restaurant, I’d recommend trying Indian versus Chinese food. I personally preferred it more. And definitely indulge in their Hara Bhara Kebabs. They are perfection!

I hope this review was helpful. Stay tuned for my next post.

Rajasthani Food Festival at Jamavar – The Leela Mumbai

Rajasthani food festival
If you love good food, then the Rajasthani Food Festival at Jamavar, The Leela Mumbai needs to be on your to-do list.

I recently had the opportunity of dining at The Leela Mumbai. This was my first brush with the brand in my own city and I was so happy that I got to experience a preview of their special Rajasthani Menu.

Here’s a little snippet from my visit.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

The Chef and the staff at Jamavar had prepared a complete meal; from starters to mains and finally dessert – everything was stellar.

There was a selection of pickles and chutneys. The bhindi with chura papad and the kairi and pyaaz kachumber (of sorts) stood out for me here.

Pickles

The Leela Mumbai

Then came the appetizers which were not only so beautifully plated, but also tasted divine.

Paneer Ke Sooley

Paneer ke sooley

A spicy marination on soft paneer chunks. This has a fiery flavor, but is delicious.

Ajmeri Kadhi Kachori

Chaat

I could definitely eat a plateful of this! The flavor of the chutneys and the crunch in the crust of this kachori totally did it for me.

Maawey aur Meewey Ki Seekh

Seekh

A seekh kebab, that was slightly on the sweeter side.

Arbi Akhrot Ki Tikki

Jamavar

A tikki made from walnuts and arbi; never knew it could be so delicious.

The main course was an equally exquisite spread

Paneer Mircha

paneer mircha

Panner, capsicum, onion in a spicy gravy. I highly recommend trying this out.

Govind Gatta Curry

Govind Gatta Curry

Big round dumplings or Gatta, is what is known as the Govind Gatta Curry. The gravy is delicious.

Sangri Ke Kofte

Rajasthani food

Very different tasting kofta. Enjoyed these with a selection of kulcha and roti.

Dal Baati Churma

Rajasthani Food Festival The Leela

For me, this was probably one of the best Dal Baatis I’ve had in a long time. The churma itself was so rich and while the baati was immersed in ghee, it was exceptionally tasty.

Aloo aur Chana Dal Ki Khichdi

Aloo and Chana Dal khichdi

A very simple, yet flavorful preparation of rice with chana dal and little potato pieces. The flavors of cinnamon and peppercorns in this took the dish to the next level.

I tried some pretty interesting dessert here as well.

Dessert at Jamavar

Matar Halwa

Halwa made from green peas. If you like the taste of raw green peas you may like this one.

Kesar Malai Kulfi

Probably the creamiest kulfi I’ve had in a long time. This was exceptional.

Malpua with Rabdi

Malpua topped with a thin layer of rabdi.

If you want to try out some delicious Rajasthani food in Mumbai, then make sure you check out this festival that is on until the 31st July at Jamavar, The Leela Mumbai. I absolutely recommend it.

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

Shakahari Marriott Pune

Shakahari Marriott Thali
Royal Indian Experience at Shakahari Marriott Pune

I was so excited to visit Shakahari Marriott Pune – a restaurant in JW, that serves specialty Indian Cuisine. They cater to food from different states of India, and have dedicated specials for each of these as well.

Shakahari Marriott Mithai

When I visited Shakahari, they had a North Indian and Rajasthani menu. I quite enjoy both the cuisines so I had a great time. You should check out this video, that shows you everything from my visit here.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

If you saw the video, you know the ‘Royal Indian Experience’ at Shakahari isn’t an understatement.

JW Marriott Pune is a very well done property. It’s boasts of a different vibe to each of it’s restaurant. And the fact that the property does have a lot of space is an added advantage. I took the steps to head up to the restaurant and I could see their staff, dressed up in Indian attire, ready to welcome us.

Shakahari Marriott Royal

The minute you walk into Shakahari, that same sense of space kind of comes back to you. Sometimes you walk in to a restaurant and all you see around is hustle and bustle. Dishes all around, meals being served, large families – this is a typical scene that I have encountered many-a-time. However, the way this place is designed, conceals that very well. Larger dining area, a wider kitchen, which is still partially visible to guests give this place a more elegant feel.

1496934217177

In the thali I had, there was a mix of Rajasthani and North Indian dishes. Starters included Dahi Wada, Rajma Salad, Palak Patta Chaat, Besan Chilla to name a few. I absolutely loved the Dahi Wada. Main course included Puris, Gatta Kadhi, Dal Baati Churma and many more items.

Shakahari Marriott Laddoo

And the dessert was a whole mishthan bhandar – a sweet shop! There was so much variety in the kind of barfis available to motichur laddoo, to Kulfi and lots more.

Shakahari Marriott Kulfi

And we finished the meal with some Paan.

Shakahari Marriott Paan

I would definitely recommend you to try out Shakahari and experience this Royal Indian Meal.

Shakahari Marriott Dessert

Lassi Te Parrontthe – The Best Aloo Paratha in Mumbai

Lassi Te Parrontthe
If you’ve been following me for a while, you would probably already know that my heart skips a beat everytime I think about Lassi Te Parrontthe. It’s one of my most favorite places to eat..like EVER!

Lassi Te Parrontthe

Lassi Te Parrontthe, for those of you who are new, is a a place at Carter Road in Mumbai. You get different varieties of Parathas here – ranging from aloo, to gobi, to methi to paneer and probably few more. The parathas are delicious, to say the least. And what I personally admire is the  dedication with which the owner Nikhil Thakur a.k.a. Parronttha Man from Carters makes these. Watch this video from my visit to Lassi Te Parrontthe and you will know what I’m talking about.


Subscribe to my YouTube here

I hope after watching the video you understand the level of parathas I’m talking about.

The stuffing in these parathas is literally spot on. I’ll tell you about my favorite one here – the aloo and it has a delicious flavor from masalas like dhaniya powder. And the parathas are also cooked to perfection. A lot of times while eating parathas outside I find that there is a spot either towards the extreme sides or where the stuffing is really heavy that feels kinda uncooked. But not with the ones I’ve had at Lassi Te Parrontthe.

Lassi Te Parrontthe

The parathas are served with Dahi that comes in a kulhad which seems pretty fresh and not at all sour. And some pickle too. You also get some chhaas and lassi here. 

Lassi Te Parrontthe

When you visit Lassi Te Parrontthe, you will pretty much see the main Parronttha Man getting the parathas ready. And just watching him make them can be so cool.

Lassi Te Parrontthe

Highly recommend this place.

I hope you enjoyed watching and reading about my experience at Lassi Te Parrontthe. Let me know if you visit the place. Would love to know how you liked it.

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!

Bombay Biryani

Cheese Schezwan Naan

unadjustednonraw_thumb_1fdd

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

unadjustednonraw_thumb_1fe2

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.

Interesting Indian Fare at Veranda Bandra

Veranda Bandra

I’m not really the kind of person that loves eating Indian food while eating out. So when I was headed to Veranda Bandra, I didn’t really know what was about to come! So here I am sharing my experience with you.

My visit to Veranda Bandra is captured in this video. I hope you enjoy it!

Subscribe to my YouTube here  

Here’s a description of everything you saw me eat at Veranda Bandra.

Leonardo Dra-vidli with Aam Panna

Veranda Bandra

Alternating flavors to help cleanse your palate. That gunpowder is the good stuff!

Kin Sue

Veranda Bandra

It’s pumpkin soup and it didn’t make me throw up. So yeah!

Watermelon Mojito

Veranda Bandra

Nothing like minty fresh watermelon with some liquor.

Contem-Beetroot Salad 

Veranda Bandra

It’s a total burst of flavors in your mouth. The salad is oh so fresh. And the beetroot with hung curd is probably the best that beetroot has ever tasted for me.

Raja Dahi Varma

Veranda Bandra

This is a dahi bhalla – but deconstructed! Great taste.

Palak Bhindi Chaat

Veranda Bandra

Spinach, fried bhindi, chutneys and hung curd – it’s got everything going on.

Cottage Cheese Trilogy

Veranda Bandra

3 Different flavors of paneer – mild, spicy and healthy i.e. with spinach!

Vegetarian Kebabs

Veranda Bandra

A beetroot kebab with tomato chutney on top, a mushroom one and the best one – a spinach kebab with sweet mango pickle. That pickle is parcel worthy!

Banksy Bharta

Veranda Bandra

Perfect baingan bharta, tomato and onion kulcha and dal makhni that’s not too heavy.

Gulkand Chocobar

Veranda Bandra

Only thing better than saunf is saunf rolled in chocolate! That’s what I felt about this.

White Chocolate Souffle

Veranda Bandra

Melting goodness. Never knew white chocolate souffle could feel so good.

That’s all from my visit to Veranda Bandra. I hope you enjoyed reading and watching. Please stay tuned for more. And in the mean time don’t forget to stay in touch with me on my social media. All links are below.

Goila Butter Chicken Review

Goila Butter Chicken

When I first heard about Goila Butter Chicken, I was like would they have anything at all for me? I’m a vegetarian and honestly a bit apprehensive of trying out places that have a meal option in their name itself! But, I conquered all my fears and tried out Goila Butter Chicken.

If you are in and around Andheri West, then Goila Butter Chicken is a great delivery option for you. It not only serves great non vegetarian stuff, but their vegetarian dished too are pretty awesome. I’ve listed below my favorites from Goila Butter Chicken. Do try them out.

Goila Butter Masala

Goila Butter Chicken

This is the Goila Butter Chicken version of Paneer Butter Masala. The gravy is brilliant – not too creamy, not too thin. And it has a hint of that charcoal, smoky flavor going on, which to be honest I quite love. Paneer chunks are soft and generously spread.

Goila Butter Chicken

Wheat Roomali

Goila Butter Chicken

If like me you are bored of regular roti or naans, go for this wheat roomali. It goes excellently well with the Goila Butter Masala.

Aloo and Bhindi Kadhi

Goila Butter Chicken

If it’s a welll cooked, subtle flavored kadhi, I will love it. And this one is no exception. Amazing homestyle besan and dahi kadhi with potato pieces and bhindi in it. Being a Sindhi, I quite love these kind of veggies in my kadhi. This is extremely homestyle – so if you want something mild, yet soothing have this with some jeera rice from Goila Butter Chicken.

Beetroot Tikki Chaat

Goila Butter Chicken

Goila Butter Chicken

Goila Butter Chicken

Beetroot tikkis and ragda with dahi and chutneys – both coriander and imli. And topped with some potato salli. Can’t go wrong with this. Order this for a fun addition to your meal. It is indeed delicious.

And lastly you can finish off with some Mango Rasgullas, like I did!

Let me know your favorite delivery place in Andheri. Leave a comment!

Review – Oye Kake

Rating – ⭐⭐⭐
I tried the aloo paratha here recently by ordering online via Zomato.
Oye Kake
Honestly, their paratha didn’t blow my mind at all. Personally I like my paratha well stuffed and I found this pretty low on that aspect.
Oye Kake
Oye Kake
The dal that comes with it is alright. Probably a tad bit oily for my liking. But taste was alright.
Oye Kake
It also has some dahi.
Oye Kake
I like their quantity and everything, just if they would have some more stuffing!
