    The Bread Boutique: oh so trendy Bandra...

    by mariocibelli Written Jun 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Discovered this by chance, the Bread Boutique (it is very South Delhi - if you know what I mean)...

    Favorite Dish: the place stocks up on a spread. Multigrain, rye, soya spekkel (Rs 38), Italian focaccia with sundried tomatoes, olives etc (Rs 55) and Spicy Mexicano (Rs 60) and White Chocolate Bread, with chocolate chips (Rs 85).

    There’s also a selection of bagels, muffins (Rs 45), cheese cakes (Rs 60-70), pies, cookies, chocolates (Rs 15 ), soup/cheese etc.

    The mini croissants (Rs 10) and rye rolls seemed regular accompanied with a tasty oregano butter (Rs 40). The chewy, multi-grained spekkel buns (Rs 12), though, are an acquired taste.

    The ball and cone cookie — margarita blueberry cone dipped in dark chocolate — was uneventful, the caramel toffee cake with pistachio sickly sweet and by default, the tiramisu left a far better aftertaste.

    Bread Boutique’s pick was the chocolate nuts and marzipan muffin (Rs 40); with a hazelnut chocolate centre, it was delicious. But this bakery needs far more than that to rise above competition in the area.

    Mainland China: Excellent Chinese...

    by husain Updated Apr 28, 2005

    One of the good Chinese restaurants in Bombay...
    The portions are good as is the ambience.
    The one issue is the crazy Bombay traffic just outside the door. Sakinaka is one of Bombays most busy junctions. Parking could be an issue too. Though i believe there is an option of valet parking... the ambience and food will help counter the pains of getting in! Sometimes there is a queue to get in as well. So yes, it is popular...

    Cafe Mondegar: Cafe Mondegar

    by husain Updated Apr 26, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe Mondegar or `Mondy's' has been around in Bombay for as long as i can remember visits to the city.
    A cafe that serves fast food, snacks, pizzas and beer.

    Popular illustrator Mario Miranda's brush has lent a distinct look to its walls, and you can buy `mondy's' souvenirs as well. t-shirts, mugs etc, with cartoons/ caricatures drawn out by Mario Miranda.
    A jukebox in one corner also plays out popular hits...

  • baba da dhaba: midway before the ghats

    by pravdr Updated Mar 25, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    when travelling on the mumbai nasik road before the start of karsara ghat which climbs up to igatpuri comes BABA DA DHABA

    dhaba means a traditional rustic indian eatery which caters to punjabi type of indian food.

    however many joints use this term loosely to mean a eating joint.

    the speciality of dhabas is usually TANDOOR food that is food cooked in clay ovens.

    this joint is more useful as a joint to have tea coffee and light snacks rather than a full meal the quality i suppose is ok for its location.

    it ends up serving all type of indian and chinese food.

    there a few more authentic dhabas along the mumbai nasik highway which offer a better fare

    Favorite Dish: snacks like idli vada and dosa were ordinary.

    tea was ok?

    service was ordinary.

    positive aspects are its good location just prior to the kasara ghat. and in monsoons the atmosphere here is heavenly.

    stick to basic fare like dal rice and alu mutter dont order too exotic dishes.

    be prepared to spend some time before the order comes.

    after descending from igatpuri

    Hotel Sindhudurg: Malvani cuisine

    by travelmad478 Updated Mar 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hotel Sindhudurg isn't a hotel (it's an Indian convention to call restaurants hotels!), but a place serving Malvani cuisine from the southwest part of India. This cuisine is very focused on fish, and I found it to be a little lighter than Keralan or Goan food, although similar.

    Favorite Dish: Along with fish curry (in a coconut and tamarind sauce), spicy grilled prawns, fried mackerel, potato chaat, puris and chapatis, there was one dish I hadn't had before: kokum kadi, also called solkadi. This was sort of a thin sauce made from a berry or seed called kokum, coconut, green chilis, cilantro, curry leaves, and a LOT of garlic. This came served warm in a glass, to drink, which was a new one on me. It was a little weird to have it that way, and to me tasted better poured on my rice!

    ???: Indian pizza...

    by pollon Updated Mar 10, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you feel like having a pizza, reach Churchgate Station and soon after the Tea Centre, the first restaurant cooking pizza is the place for you... sorry I cannot remember the name but its pizza was really good: I even made compliments to the cooks behind the pizza counter as their pizza dough was in the perfect Italian style.
    And... you can choose an Indian topping for it: simply order the Indian pizza which is with chicken and of course chilli pepper!

    Noorani's Restaurant: biryani...

    by pollon Updated Mar 10, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: The Noorani's Restaurant has ended to be the last tip only because I had here my good bye meal before the flight to Europe but if you like biryani, it's the place for you.
    I tasted excellent mutton biryani, chicken biryani and the butter chicken with rotis - the trick is to take each one a different dish and share them.
    For starter masala papads and for dessert the firni (made of milk, sugar and rice).

    Barista: coffee...

    by pollon Updated Mar 2, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: I was said Barista is a coffee shops chain and compared to India prices it was expensive but its chocolate cake (59 rupee = about 1 euro a slice) was gorgeous and my cafe mocha with whipped cream (50 rupee = about 0.90 euro) seemed with perfectly made Italian coffee so if are a coffee addict, enter one of these shops, it's also perfect if you need a relaxing stop when you are tired of walking or outside the tropical sun is too hot...

    Jimmy Boy: delightful Parsi food

    by pollon Updated Mar 2, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since when I had read aadil's tip about Jimmy Boy Parsi restaurant, I had told him that the day I would have gone to Mumbai, he had to bring me there...

    The food is served on a banana leaf like during Parsi wedding and as my host seemed to have a freemasonry relationship with the owner of the restaurant :-P, we also got the special pot they use during wedding to make you wash your hands after eating...

    For those who want to know about my mention of freemason, wouldn't you think the same if you stand up from your seat at the table trying to go and offer the meal and the owner, who had never turned once to aadil nor he to him, tells you that everything is already done and he only wants you to sign his guests book...????

    The owner I'm speaking about is the one in my pic with his guests book on his left and the meal here was definitely my best one in Mumbai!!!!

    Favorite Dish: I would heartily advice the non veg. Lagan Nu Bhonu menu:
    Saas ni Macchhi OR
    Patra ni Macchhi OR
    Tareli Macchhi
    - they are all various fish dishes served in different sauces
    Salli Margi
    - chicken with a gravy and peppered with thinly grated fried potatoes, the Salli OR
    Margi Na Farcha
    - battered chicken pieces fried in eggs
    Chicken or Mutton Pulao with Dhansak Dal
    - meat dishes

    Tea Centre: tea and not only...

    by pollon Updated Mar 2, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is lots to say about the Tea Centre as it can be a place for breakfast, dinner, a nice cup of tea - it has a yummy choice of sweet stuff to come with the tea - for a snack, for buying tea in the nearby shop...
    It's a place with a refined atmosphere but not high-falutin (just in case you had linked this impression to my use of refined ;-)...) and of the four times I entered it, for three of them an extra kind lady with such a welcoming smile was at the entrance to head you to your table.

    Favorite Dish: A main dish like Gosht Hariyal (mutton with a green gravy), Macchi Rai Tamatar (fish in tomato sauce) costs 135-155 rupee (2-3 euros) and a delicious dessert, mine was a local fruit soufflé, 50 rupee (less than 1 euro), about 350 rupee (6 euros) for a whole meal with for example Dal Tadka (lentil gravy), Raita (don't forget it, if you want an help for the too hot food), Chapatti (local bread), dessert and drinks. For the India average it's an expensive place but Mumbai is more expensive than other towns and so is this restaurant compared to others anyway it's really worth it.

    With the tea, if you have a sweet tooth like me, you can choose scones, served with jam and cream, or an apple pie or a chocolate cake and if you prefer a saulty snack, you can order a very nice mixed fry, only pay attention not to bite (I did and not on purpose!!!) a chilli pepper: it's the thinnest and longer of the vegetables covered with a watery dough and fried.

    And for the tea lovers you can get fine tippy golden flowery Orange Pekoe that you find on the menu as pure Darjeeling FTGFOP, pure Assam leaf tea, green tea, Oolong tea, Nilgiri, tea, Kashmiri Kawha tea, flavoured teas and a tea pot considered for two is enough also for three - infact on the menu you can choose among a single cup, a teapot for two or for six.

    tea and not only...

    Hotel Sindhudurg.: Malvani Cuisine Restaurant.

    by aadil Written Feb 26, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gleaming stainless steel table tops with three levels of seating in an air conditioned setting and some very fast service with very helpful staff to explain the ingredients used to make the different dishes to our foreign guests!!! Not too expensive for the quality as well as quantity of food served!!! Located in a small lane off the busy Dadar residential area.

    Favorite Dish: Solkadi has to be it but it is not a dish as it is only a drink or something like a curry but can be drunk from a glass!!! Delicious if eaten with plain rice too as it is sweet, spicy and tangy!!! Made of coconut and kokum mixed together with a paste of coriander, green chillies, garlic and ginger to taste. The seafood is something that is special as it is from the coastal area that this place is famous for it's cuisine. We had the mackerel and pomfret along with some king prawns too. We also ordered the fish thali so it comes with a curry, some vegetables, rice and some solkadi too along with chappatis or wadas (like a puri).

    Oh Calcutta: Bengali food

    by husain Written Feb 12, 2005

    A great place in Bombay to find authentic Bengali food is `Oh Calcutta'.
    Good ambience and great food... the service was good too.

    Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the `dhokar dalna' in particular. Though its a simple vegetarian dish...
    My friends enjoyed the fish tremendously (i`m not too big on fish... so what was i doing in a bengali restaurant??)

    oh calcutta
