It’s soya and minced exotic vegetables.  A classic combination of proteins, good carbs, vitamins, minerals and fiber which works alluringly well to satiate your appetite.   Kheema Pao @ Kyani & Co, Marine Lines

Three Restaurants In The City & Here’s What We Think About Them

Canto, Charni Road
 
img_6674
Canto
    Replacing Karma – The Liquid Lounge from the early 2000s, Canto is perhaps the newest culinary addition to the food scene in Charni Road. As you enter you’re greeted with two giant paintings sprawled across the wall of dancers.   The seating is spread over a voluminous floor and a tiny mezzanine area. The casual dining restaurant is furnished with comfortable couches, a mix of wooden and wrought iron chair and tables. What do we like best? How luminous the cafe looks along with the obvious sense of space, both owing to the ample sunlight flowing through the doors and windows.    
canto
Canto
  We started sipping on The Red Rage and Mango Mary. The Red Rage was a spunky refreshing take on the usual watermelon juice and Mango Mary was a mix of cola and raw mango and spices it tasted like kala khatta. It sure could’ve been better.  
img_6642
Chermoula Prawns
  For appetizers, we sampled Chermoula Prawns and Malai Chicken Sambusa. Crunchy prawns were mildly spiced in well-made chermoula marinade served on ragi crackers tasted like a flavourful yet finely balanced dish. Malai Chicken Sambusa, on the other hand, was slightly disappointing. Served on a flat board with a dot of dip hidden below the flat sambusas for some reason with random coriander garnish. While we liked the creamy the filling was, the dish could’ve been better.  
img_6684
Goat Cheese Sandwich
  We also tried their Goat Cheese Sandwich, which was the definition of comfort food. We asked ourselves ‘how many places serve a sandwich so basic yet so flavourful?’ The gooey cheese trickled onto the plate, the earthy taste of the pesto, nutty walnut married the slight tartness of the fleshy tomatoes.  
Banana Wrapped Fish at Canto
Banana Wrapped Fish
  We started our mains with Banana Wrapped Fish and Pasta AOP. Patra fish came with a side of Parsley Rice and chutney. We liked that the fish was delicately cooked and the flavours had all seeped in, but the fillet wasn’t deboned well. We chose spaghetti with the Aglio Olio, of course, and the dish was lovely.    
img_6724
Crepe Suzette
  We finished our meal here with Molten Chocolate and Crepe Suzette. While the crepe was deliciously zesty, the Molten Chocolate was their version of choco lava cake. It came with a scoop of ice cream on top cascading over the cake. Even though it had very little chocolate sauce but that didn’t bother us from polishing both our desserts off in no time.   We think it’s a great restaurant, especially to have in an area like Girgaum where one a majority of veg dining options. It really bridges the gap between a gap between ShivSagar like restaurants to  We really like the restaurant and wouldn’t mind going back, especially for the delicious Goat Cheese Sandwich.
Bombay Brasserie, Worli
 
bb-balcony
Bombay Brasserie
  Just opposite Nehru Planetarium, Bombay Brasserie has opened its doors to the city after over a decade.  We had a quick look inside and couldn’t help but adore the quirky interiors, lovely cocktails, and delectable food.  
Gunpowder Potatoes at Bombay Brasserie
Gunpowder Potatoes
  Aam Papad Paneer is an absolute delight here. Cubes of lusciously soft yet firm paneer dressed in a savoury sauce, stands true to the name. Marathi Jhinga Mirch was a slight let down, they came on a bed of crushed peanuts and we think could’ve been spicier. Gunpowder Potatoes was another dish we relished here. Spicy podi on baby potatoes works its magic on our palate. We washed it down with Paua Cocktails – Gulabo and Janta Bar.  
Naga Ghost Pepper Wings at Bombay Brasserie
Naga Ghost Pepper Wings
  We savoured the lusciously soft Galouti Kebab; these were a fine balance of spices and tender meat. Naga Ghost Pepper Wings arrived in a dim sum steamer for some reason and weren’t as spicy as we expected, having said that they had a smokey flavour and aroma to it. We washed it down with a cocktail, wait, a potent cocktail called Fauji Party Special. We got nostalgic as we saw Molly Lolly arrive.  
img_6802
Molly Lolly
We arrived at our happy ending to this meal with Anglo-Indian Bread Pudding.
Anglo-Indian Bread Pudding at Bombay Brasserie
Anglo-Indian Bread Pudding
We poured over the custard emulsion that came with it in a cup and polished our dessert off in no time! After 15 long years, we’re glad that Bombay Brasserie is finally home in Bombay, Worli. With the quirky interiors, great food and a large list of beverages no wonder they’ve won hearts around the country.  
Above & Beyond, Andheri

Above & Beyond
  Only if you’ve lived under a rock you’ve not looked at the pretty interiors this cafe has and we scaled all the way up north to Mahakali Caves, Andheri for a review.  
Potholes of Mumbai and Sundried Tomato Polenta Squares at Above & Beyond
Potholes of Mumbai and Sundried Tomato Polenta Squares (in the background)
  We started with Peach Ice Tea & Cold Coffee, however, both were a tad too sweet. We munched on Garlic Bread which was pretty good, Potholes of Mumbai and Sundried Tomato Polenta Squares. The polenta squares were rather oily as they left a mark even on the plate after being served. The Potholes of Mumbai perhaps their take on Bunny Chow but with eggs was something that we’ve never had before.  
Mushroom and Caramelised Onion Sandwich at Above & Beyond
Mushroom and Caramelised Onion Sandwich
  Mushroom and Caramelised Onion sandwich and Wok Tossed Greens, on the other hand, were rather good. The creamy mushroom complimented the slight sweetness of onions. The slight soy accent in the Wok Tossed Greens was extremely refreshing.  
img_6506
Chocolate Cheesecake
  For desserts, we gorged on some Mango and Chocolate Cheesecake. Both were not exactly impressive. Mango Cheesecake, an apparent house specialty tasted as though it was made of flavours instead of the fruits. Chocolate was more or less palatable and left an unpleasant layer of fat on the roof of our mouths. As the last thoughts, it’s a good place to hang out with your friends and they do have sheeshas upstairs. Adding to that they have board games and books too, maybe you’d want to stop by for the ambiance, food maybe not.  

Lets Roll With The Best Sushi This International Sushi Day

This Is A Big List Of Mumbai’s Favourite Iftaar Dishes

Don’t we all look forward to the Holy Month of Ramzan? The fast ends in the evening with an Iftar feast, this is a communal meal and no doubt it brings everybody closer. While we’ll never run out of options to dine during iftaar, we’ve compiled a list of some delicious eats from around the city.   Chicken Vada Pav @ Mahim Khau Galli, Mahim  
chicken-vadapav
Chicken Vadapav at Mahim
  Just opposite Mahim Dargah is this plane called Mahim Khau Galli. Dotted with vendors ladling out dollops of khichda, haleem and kebabs we found this one selling Chicken Vadapav. A patty of mashed potato and shredded chicken is sandwiched in the chutney laced bun; delicious and tiny, it makes for a great snack.   Mawa Jalebi @ JJ Jalebi, Bhendi Bazaar Have you felt happy just by looking at something? Mawa Jalebi is one such delight. Just at the JJ Hospital Junction, below the flyover, this tiny shop doles out this warm, dense and lusciously syrupy dessert and we can’t get enough of them.   Shawarma @ Mahim Khau Galli, Mahim chicken-shawarma   Shawarmas don’t need an introduction, neither it is a Ramzan specialty, but the one you get Mahim Khau Galli are one of the good ones we’ve had in the city.     Seekh Kebab @ Farid’s Seekh Kebab, Jogeshwari   seekh-kebab   Jogeshwari East is a haven for delicious Iftaar food too, but this time, leave the makeshift stalls behind to wolf down some mouth watering seekh kebab at Farid’s Seekh Kebab.   Baida Roti @ Bademiyan, Colaba  
Baida Roti at Taaza Food Centre
Baida Roti
  This hearty snack is somewhat like a hot pocket filled with a spicy minced meat mix, egg washed and fried. Even though not a quintessential Iftar dish, it reserves a special place throughout the year.   Mutton Samosas @ Mohamed Ali Road   
Karela Samosas
Mutton Samosas
  When maneuvering your way through this labyrinth of lanes brimming with food, you’ll find vendors selling some crunchy and delicious samosas filled with a spicy mutton kheema filling.     Haleem @ Mahim Khau Galli, Mahim  
haleem
Haleem at Mahim Khau Galli
  Haleem is a stew made of lentils, shredded meat, cracked cereal and pounded wheat topped with crisp onion shreds, mint leaves and chicken; it’s just as delicious as it is healthy and comforting.   Iftar Feast @ Neel Indian Kitchen, Powai  
neel-kebab
Seekh Kebab
  Neel at Powai is doing a great job with their iftar menu too. The Lucknowi accent to their food is something we adore. From mouth watering Lagaan Ki Nihari to yummy Gosht Ki Dum Biryani and Kebabs, you’ve got ample choices here.   Raan Biryani @ Persian Darbar, Bandra

  After a day of fasting,doesn’t the thought of sharing a meal with the ones you love seem like just the right thing to do? Gather around the table and feast on a delicious Raan Biryani, the seamless amalgam of the spices, tender meat, and the long grained rice makes it a large plate to be shared with loved ones.   Rogan Josh @ Delhi Darbar, Colaba  
Rogan josh at
Rogan Josh
  This brilliant red meat stew is no newbie to Iftar feasts and it’s a dish that you definitely must try. While the name literally means stewed in ghee, this fiery red curry packs many more flavours and goes really well with naan.   Malpua @ Shalimar, Bhendi Bazaar  
Malpua at Noorani Milk Centre
Malpua
  Similar to Pancakes, Malpua is a dessert to die for! These are served warm just after they’re dunked in syrup. The light yet fleshy consistency put together with syrupy goodness sure gives you a sugar rush!   Aflatoon & Phirni @ Suleiman Usman Mithaiwala, Bhendi Bazaar    
Independence day in delhi
Phirni
  Speaking of desserts, it’ll be a crime if we didn’t mention the amazing Aflatoon and Phirni. Aflatoon is a dense, rich mithai made with nuts, ghee, eggs, and sugar while phirni is the good old rice pudding. The milk and rice have a supple consistency and are usually topped with nuts. What’s more? They come in a range of flavours such as strawberry and blueberry too.   Now that you know just the right places to get your iftar fix, go get yours and don’t stop until you have a food coma   after-iftar   P.
