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.

I’ll just be honest – cupcakes are my weakness. I’ve tried so many different places and had so many ‘Oh Yeah’s’ and also quite a few Oh God No’s! This place is definitely an Oh yeah!

Have tried their Oreo, Red Velvet, cookies and cream and so many different versions of chocolate – and all have been great. They do their dark chocolate one really well.

The cake is fresh..Not too dry..neither too moist. The icing is delish. I quite like their mini cupcakes – literally pop in the mouth.
They also have pastries, macaroons and a lot of other things – but I’ve only tried their cupcakes. Recommend this place to quench your cupcake cravings.

Theobroma Review

Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A place synonymous with great brownies, that’s how so many people place Theos. I love most of the desserts here. Keep reading if you want to know which one’s are my favorite.

I love theos! And this is going to be a pure rave about a dessert called After 9 – a chocolate and mint pastry at theos. It is exactly as per the description – inspired by the delicious after 8 chocolate. The pastry is absolutely yummy. If you love mint flavored chocolates and / or after 8 then you will simply love this pastry. The top almost feels like the after 8 strips and the cake part is yummy too. And the white center icing part which is on top is also fresh and kinda minty. Probably is my new favorite dessert. Highly highly recommend this.

If you’re born and brought up in Mumbai, then you know what Candies means to us..right?!! Penning down one of my recent experiences at Candies. Keep reading!

Candies has been around for so long..The feel, the taste remains unchanged even after so many years. If you’re looking for a great place to chill, in Bandra and also something that’s not really pricey then come to Candies. But there’s a rule – you need to come early, whether it’s for lunch or dinner else most of their stuff is finished.

I recently parcelled some stuff from here and ate it at home. I had their samsosas – 2 types. One was a mini samosa and the other was a Punjabi samosa. The mini samosa was quite yummy

Then I tried the veg rolls – one had a mix veg filling and the other had a corn and spinach filling. Both of these were very ok – the outer covering was way too thick for my liking.
