Salads, Pizza and Pasta at 63 By-Lane, Kandivali East

63 By-Lane
63 By-Lane Pizza is a pretty new joint for Salads, Pizza and Pasta around Thakur village in Kandivali East. The place is kind of a blessing to anyone craving authentic stuff in this area.

I recently visited 63 By-Lane and tried out some of their stuff. Here’s a peek into everything I had.

Salads at 63 By-Lane

Salad No.10 – The Watermelon and Feta Salad

63 By-Lane

I started with this salad and was totally blown over in just the first bite. The sweet watermelon gives a tremendous burst of flavor and the mild natural bitterness from arugula blends really well with it. Balsamic vinegar adds a nice feel along with walnuts that are sweetened because of all the goodness from the mild dressing. Small bits of feta cheese just feel so delicious! The watermelon in this salad is deseeded – so additional brownie points for that!

63 By-Lane

Salad No.63 – Fresh Lettuce and Veggies

63 By-Lane

Lemon flavor, fresh iceberg lettuce along with quinoa – quite a wholesome combination! As if that wasn’t enough, there is a generous addition of vegetables too – olives, onions, peppers, tomatoes, corn and cucumber. The natural flavor of the veggies mixed with the mild lemon dressing and loads of heakthy seeds truly makes this a healthy yet delicious combo.

63 By-Lane

They have various salad combos or you can even try making your own salad with whatever you need. I highly recommend their Watermelon and Feta Cheese Salad.

Pizza at 63 By-Lane

Pizza No.63 – Multigrain Thin Crust with Veggies

63 By-Lane

Tomato sauce with a generous serving of mushrooms, baby corn, broccoli, spinach and onions. This pizza comes on a multigrain thin crust and can be pretty filling. The vegetables lend their own flavor and make this a pretty good choice.

63 By-Lane

Pizza No.91 – Paneer in Barbecue Sauce

63 By-Lane

The sweetness of the barbecue sauce goes really well with a perfectly crisp crust. The pizza has soft paneer pieces that melt in your mouth. This combined with the generous amount of capsicum and onion on top makes this an ideal pizza for anyone who loves pizza with a slight Indian twist.

63 By-Lane

Pizza No.89 – Margherita

63 By-Lane

This particular pizza did little for me, to be honest. Somehow that nice sweet and tangy flavor which is synonymous with margherita was absent. Also the crust felt slightly chewy.

Pizza No.04 – 4 Cheese 

63 By-Lane

A very good attempt here. Perfectly crisp crust. And no weird smelly after taste from all the different cheese. I normally don’t enjoy a 4 Cheese pizza, but this one did make an exception. Mozarella, Cheddar, Gouda and Monterey jack on a layer of Alfredo Sauce.

All of their Pizza Sauce and Base is made in house. You can literally design your own pizza here – pick a sauce, toppings and crust. And there are plenty of options if you prefer Jain as well. And – you don’t get charged per topping!

63 By-Lane

Pasta at 63 By-Lane

Pasta No.63 – Mushroom Sauce

63 By-Lane

Spaghetti in a creamy and cheesy Alfredo sauce along with mushrooms and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. For anyone who doesn’t mind mushrooms and loves a good cheesy spaghetti, this one’s your dish.

63 By-Lane

Pasta No.10 – Pesto Sauce

63 By-Lane

I’m not the biggest fan of Pesto sauce and this one was pretty okayish! The Pesto flavor wasn’t very in your face (read mouth) and the sauce overall wasn’t all that creamy too.

63 By-Lane

Pasta No.16 – Pomodoro Sauce

63 By-Lane

There are very few things that I enjoy more than a mild tomato and basil pasta – just the flavor of San Marzano tomatoes and Basil leaves along with some olive oil means soul food to me. And somehow that’s not what this Pomodoro Sauce Pasta did for me. The sauce and the flavors, everything was basically really underwhelming. I did like the fact that they maintained their pasta al dente. But I do feel that the sauce was missing that tangy tomato flavor.

63 By-Lane

Pasta No.02 – Pink Sauce

63 By-Lane

Because the tomato sauce here overall felt very subdued, in kind of became a bit more apparent in this Pink Sauce Pasta. Pink sauce pasta is like goodness in a serving – creamy cheesy flavor and the sweet and sour feel of tomatoes together. This one doesn’t do justice at all.

63 By-Lane

All of their pasta is made right in front of you – so you can be rest assured of hygiene and quality. And of course – ask for Jain options if you need to.

63 By-Lane

Drinks at 63 By-Lane

Fresh Lime Water with Chia Seeds

63 By-Lane

Homestyle fresh lime – slightly sweet, slightly sour, along with chia seeds that give a subtle yet noticeable twist. I absolutely love the feel of chia and just adding it to fresh lime makes such a difference. And they also add a couple of tulsi leaves which just gives that hint of flavor.

Chilled Lemon Tea

63 By-Lane

This is refreshing any day! Sweet tea and lemon is a combination that you can’t go wrong with. Do try this out.

Their beverages are done in house too and I absolutely recommend that you order one with your meal. These feel really good.

Overall, the food at 63 By-Lane kind of pulls towards the extremes for me – there was stuff like the salads, beverages and the barbecue pizza that I really enjoyed. And then there was stuff that I didn’t care for very much. I do feel this place has a lot of potential and is definitely a blessing for the are in which it operates.

Do try it out and let me know how you liked it!

800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria – Los Angeles

800 Degrees Neapolitan

Travelling makes me really happy. So does food. So here’s a snippet of something that I really enjoyed while I was in Los Angeles recently. Watch this video from my visit to 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria in Downtown, LA. And while your at it, do Subscribe to my YouTube channel as well.

Subscribe to my YouTube here 

800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria was just a couple of blocks from my hotel, and I visited this place one afternoon for lunch. They did have a whole authentic feel going on – open kitchen, multiple huge brick ovens and of course Margherita Pizza! If you have been following me, then you know that I absolutely enjoy a good Margherita – so here I was! And the best part was that I got to film a lot of the pizza being made. That’s how this video came along. 

The pizza here was good – kinda soft and soggy like the authentic one, mild sauce and loads of Olive Oil and cheese. It was good pizza and I think I’d rate it a 4 on 5.

Here are some more pictures that you can check out from my visit here.

So if you are in Los Angeles, then do visit 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria. They also had a gelato section, which unfortunately I didn’t end up trying. Their pizza is quite nice and a great option if you are looking for a change than the regular American style sliced pizza. And they do have a lot of branches, across countries as well – Las Vegas, Dubai and many more.

Review – California Pizza Kitchen

Rating – ⭐⭐⭐ and half
Some how California Pizza Kitchen doesn’t do it for me. Been here multiple times and have had that meh feeling on all those times. 
California Pizza Kitchen
Jumping into what I ate – I opted for their set meal lunch menu which was for around 700 bucks and had a non alcoholic beverage, a starter, a pizza or a pasta and a dessert. Best part about this was that I could share it with another person.

For starter, I tried their fried Mac and cheese. This was as the name suggests, Mac and cheese in a crispy outer covering. First time trying this out and it was pretty decent.

I opted for their pizza and tried the thin crust kasundi paneer pizza. This thin crust almost felt like skinny crust – uber thin for my liking. And the pizza was covered end to end with paneer, tomatoes, peppers and lots of other veggies in an Indian sauce. The taste wasn’t all that great – I mean an Indian pizza needs to be all kinds of tasty and chatpata but this one lacked that zing.

For dessert I had their chocolate trinity – and it was super! Loads of dark chocolate and chocolate mousse together..it was dense and really heavy duty. Only glitch was the cocoa powder on top seemed a bit too flaky. Otherwise this is top notch!

 I also had their ice tea and that was alright.

Zees Pizza, Lower Parel

I recently ordered from Zees Pizza after seeing it on Zomato. This was traditional call and deliver and not via app.
Zees Pizza, Lower Parel
I tried their vegetarian pan pizza and the vegetarian calzone. The pizza is exceptional – 5 veggie toppings for 99 bucks! And you have an opinion of either marinara or tandoori sauce. The pizza doesn’t feel like an effort to chew, sauce is super tasty.

Coming to the calzone – AweFreakinSome! I’m not exaggerating here at all. Yummy paneer filling in a mayo kinda sauce and probably some other things too. Very very good. I’m not too fond of calzone but this was super. And was actually recommended to me by the person taking my order!

1Tablespoon Pizza Kitchen Review

I recently tried out the pizza from here and it was ah-ma-zing! Read my full review of 1Tablespoon Pizza Kitchen below!

My love for 1Tablespoon Pizza Kitchen is probably going to get unconditional ?

After having their yummy pizzas on home delivery, I decided to visit their Matunga outlet where you can sit and eat. This is mostly outdoor seating and very minimalistic.

I had their margherita pizza because that’s the one I ate earlier and loved. This time too it was fantastic. Excellent pizza base and the sauce and everything was so tasty. I don’t think that a vegetarian pizza place can get better than this.
