It Happened In New York is a one of a kind experience in Mumbai. You rarely come across a place to eat which is as huge as this one.

The interiors of It Happened In New York are very interesting. So the entry level houses a huge community table. I absolutely love the concept as it can be used by larger groups as a whole or even individuals looking to catch a meal alone. The next level is a beautiful seating area in which you will find super stylish chairs and sofa tables along with huge windows that offer a city view.

It Happened In New York

It Happened In New York offers signature American Food. I tried quite a few items here, including their version of the Peanut-Butter-Jelly sandwich, Bagels, Spaghetti, Nachos and of course American Style Cheese Cake! And of course all of it was extremely savoury. And expect their bar man to stir up a great drink too. I tried something called the Santana Sour and absolutely enjoyed it.

Pritam Da Dhaba – Review and What to Eat

Pritam Da Dhaba

I’m not a big supporter of eating proper Indian food while I’m eating out. So when I was headed for a family dinner to Pritam Da Dhaba, there wasn’t much I was looking forward to. However, the food ended up being extremely tasty and I also had one of the best Hara Bhara Kebabs of my whole life! So here’s my experience at Pritam Da Dhaba.

That was Pritam Da Dhaba! I absolutely could not resist grabbing all of that roomali roti action and I’m so glad I did.

Here’s my full review and suggestions on what to eat when you are at Pritam Da Dhaba.

Hara Bhara Kebabs

Pritam Da Dhaba

These are just perfect. The stuffing is really good, they have the right amount of crunch. You can’t not have these at Pritam Da Dhaba!

Paneer Musallam

Pritam Da Dhaba

Their version of paneer butter masala. It isn’t too creamy or too watery. The gravy has that nice tangy tomato taste with the right amount of Indian masalas. And this is the one I personally recommend over Moti Mahal’s paneer butter masala.

Chura Paratha 

Pritam Da Dhaba

Crumpled paratha with loads of ghee. Try this for sure.

Dal Makhani

Pritam Da Dhaba

Not too heavy – you don’t feel like a slouch after eating this.

Those were my recommendation at Pritam Da Dhaba. It’s one of those Old is Gold kinda places. I think the food is really tasty. The ambience is also a no-nonsense kinds. They do have some sitting place outside as well which has that dhaba kind of feel – the khaats and the lit up trees. All in all, a great place for tasty Indian food.

Have you been to Pritam? Let me know about your experience in the comments below. And I would also like to know your favorite restaurant for Indian food.

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.

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.

I hope you enjoyed reading and watching. I know it’s been a while since there was a blog post but there are many interesting ones coming. So stay tuned and also subscribe to my YouTube – I do upload videos quite often. And also follow me on my social media. All of the links are below.

Asia Kitchen By Mainland China EatThis!

ytmainsmall

You have gotta #EatThis when you visit Asia Kitchen by Mainland China.

Subscribe to my YouTube here

Asia Kitchen by Mainland China is one place where I loved everything that I ate. Each and every item was delicious! Quick review of each of these items is below.

Soy peanuts
Will appear on your table as a welcome gesture. I bet you, you won’t be able to stop popping these.

Vegetarian sweet corn soup
Thick and creamy and doesn’t feel like an excess of corn flour. It’s got a little bit of veggies in it. Absolutely loved this.

Crispy lotus stem with black pepper and curry leaves
Never thought I would love lotus stem. The flavor of the Lotus stem and curry leaves together had me totally gorging on this.

Dumplings
Tried one with spinach and the other with veggies – Cabbage , carrots etc. The outer covering is soft and melt in your mouth. Veggies inside are so flavorful. Spinach doesn’t feel bitter.

Raw Papaya Salad
This is such a nice sweet and sour flavor – feels really light and refreshing. Finely chopped raw papaya, some tomatoes and a little bit of capsicum – very tasty.

Crispy crackling spinach
Loved the way this was served – looked so bomb sitting pretty in a martini glass. Slightly different than the other places I’ve had crackling spinach – this was even tinier bits and not whole leaves. Add had a slightly different, but good flavor. And was definitely the least oily one I’ve had.

Teriyaki chilli potato
A slightly different version of the regular honey chilli potato – Teriyaki gave a nice sweetish flavor and I love any tossed / fried potato. So I obviously totally loved this.

Stir fry beans
Main course started with some stir fry beans – green beans with some spring onions, chilli and sesame seeds. I usually am not the biggest fan of stir fry veggies but this was so yum!

Assorted veggies in black bean sauce
Black bean sauce done perfect – no weird taste that sometimes black bean sauce can have. Veggies included zucchini, carrots, broccoli, corn, onions. I don’t like black bean sauce either but this one was quite nice.

Golden corn, potatoes and water chestnut
This is STELLAR. A nice hot sauce felt like hunan mixed with something milder and corn, potatoes and water chestnut. It is going into my most favorite gravy list. You have to try this.

Lemongrass Fried Rice
Heavy flavor – I personally liked it. If you are ok with a heavy flavor going on in your fried rice then you will love it.

Thai exotica
Guava juice and basil – fresh and refreshing.

Malay spice melon
Highly highly recommend this one. Watermelon juice, some ginger and lime. Ginger and watermelon is such a great combo.

Lychee and vanilla ice cream
Literally came in glass bowl with a whole lot of vapor! Deseeded Lychee – win! Them and vanilla ice cream together – double win!

Honey noodles with orange and basil
If just honey noodles weren’t good enough! Zesty orange flavor on honey noodles make them even better. So sooooo delish. Another one in my list of favorite desserts.
