Our Own Food Festival Part 2

So continuing from where we left off about 10 days ago, the journey continued in terms of awesome food. Also considering it was October, which also happens to be Mihir & my Birthday Month & yes we celebrate the whole month :-).  Having said that back to the foodgasm tour. This time around, Rachita had made some brilliant Shortbread with Caramel & Chocolate Ganache which was totally and absolutely amazing as you can see in the picture below.

Heavenly!!!

We also have my brother-in-law’s birthdays in the month of October & so we decided to celebrate the same with mine & Mihir’s birthday. Before we get to that menu I need to tell you guys about the crazy #beerfest we had at our residence courtesy Mihir & Yooti. About 10 days ago, Mihir & Yooti got me loads of Birthday Gifts. The same included the Das Boot Glasses (Glasses in Shape of Boots) & Loads of Beers from around the world; so that evening, we went crazy drinking the likes of Murphy’s Stout, Birra Morreti, Super Bock, London Pride & a choice of flavored Beers from Indus Pride which included Corriander, Cinnamon & Spicy Fennel….the same was absolutely unbelievable… We were all decently drunk as we tasted & finished all the beers; even Rachita who doesn’t drink had a swig of most of the flavors!

Beers!!!

Super Awes

Delicious Cupcakes!!!

We had Ritika & Suneel over for an evening where Rachita had made some Paprika Puffs with Devilled Mushrooms. There were 3 types of dips with tortilla chips, pretzels and pita chips. There were some awesome Grape, Basil & Ricotta sticks which were off the charts!!! There were also some amazing cupcakes with butter icing. That was the 1st party! The 2nd one was with the family & in-laws where we had made like an interactive meal – the same consisted of Chilli Beans, Chick Peas with a Caribbean Seasoning, Panner Chilli & French Fries in Mustard. The guests were served hot Roomali Roti’s & they could decide the roll they wanted to make, the concept was a run away hit… For dessert that day, Rachita & I had put together a 6 Layer creation that included Red velvet Cake, Shortbread, Chocolate Ganache, Caramel, Coconut Flavored Cheese Cake, Fresh Fruits with a drizzled of chocolate & Icecream. The same we layered into individual glasses, so the helpings were easy to eat and also the same let the flavors sink into the dessert which was absolutely & totally sensational!!!

Goo!!!

Sensational!!!

Yummmmyyy!!!

The rains have also gone away which is great news as I have been going on my bike rides very regularly. Also Ekta’s bike was here this weekend so I decided to take the same for a spin which was awesome fun. The weather in the mornings is absolutely perfect & just makes the whole experience brilliant!!! Last week Ekta & I went for a ride in the evening – she on Goo & me on my Avenger, stopped at Woodside Inn for a drink, rode back home had more to drink & totally killed it. This Friday we went to Soul Fry Casa, one of our most favorite places & got shitfaced on some watermelon Martinis & Sugarcane, Ginger & Vodka mix… Over the weekend, i.e the one which just went by, we went to Karma for lunch, had Pizzas, Sizzlers & Wok Tossed Noodles. Also, we were celebrating Vishal’s Birthday & for the same, Rachita had made a brilliant Rainbow Cake. You have to see the pictures in the slide show below. For dinner there was super salad, grilled vegetables, a chunky roasted potato mash, polenta topped with a mushroom reduction which was unbelievably delicious; not to forget, we had some roasted fennel as well!!!  Yup, so that’s been our crazy food experience since the past coupla weeks. Do check the pictures in the slide show for a yummy visual treat & till next time, happy eating 🙂

The Weekend , Bike Ride & Food Update

Sausage & Meat Yummmyness!!!

Goo!

This weekend was pretty crazy, with a lot of things happening beyond the normal R & C (resting & chilling). Beyond thee pictures attached, do also check out the slide show below for all the brilliant & yummy pictures. Started off the same early Friday afternoon, wherein post work from our fort office, Vishal & I decided to head to Mocambo’s which is a restaurant opposite our office and have a few pints. Reached there, zeroed in on Miller, which we had drunk in Goa, though now the same was in Bombay so happiness happened! We had a few pints; from there, we decided to head to Kobe’s for lunch. Mihir & Rachita also joined us for lunch. Sizzlers were had which were pretty awesome – Sausage Sizzler, Hamburger Steak Sizzler & Nasi goreng which is a rice based Sizzler were devoured. Post this, we finished some work and then were going to crash at our relevant homes. Please note, Ekta wasn’t there as she was in Sanpada and post that was heading to Baroda. In the evening, I got a call from Ekta saying she is not going to Baroda and that she will be going the next day on her bike… Full on drinking session happened post that with Rum & beer, post which we passed out. Ekta got up the next day by 4:00 a.m. and left for Baroda.

Basilico

Miller!!!

Saturday morning started off with deciding a brunch date with the Mrs. We decided to go to Colaba & then figure a place to go and eat. Post loitering across Colaba Causeway we decided to go to Basilico. Reached Basilico by 11:30 a.m., the place was pretty empty. Rachita ordered a Ginger Cooler & I had some Orange Pekoe Tea (Yup! I had tea, as Basilico doesn’t serve Alcoholic Beverages); also by then we had called Anushka & asked her to join us. While waiting for her, we ordered a Cajun Chicken Salad which was superb! Once Anushka aka Anus arrived, we bitched about a lot of general things and then ordered some Chicken & Steak for our mains. Also ordered some insanely yummy Pizza & finally ended the leisurely brunch with a New York Syle Cheese Cake. For those who don’t know the difference between Philedelphia & New York Cheesecake, Philly is Baked while NY is steamed :-). The afternoon was spent sleeping, woke up and then went for an awesome bike ride past Marine Drive & Nariman Point, got home & figured Rachita had made some awesome burritos for dinner. The dinner spread was awesome – there was sour cream, guacamole, salsa, refried beans & tortilla’s for dinner. Also to top all of that, Rachita made some super duper cheesecake (eggless, that too!). Post the crazily awesome dinner, we watched a few episode of Game of Thrones Season 2 & passed out.

Worlds Best Burrito!!!

Baked Cheese Cake!!!

Awesomeness!!!

Sunday morning started off with Astro’s walk, then bath as always. Then there was a session of personal grooming in the bathroom, accompanied by some dhinchak regional music. Played a session of Sleeping Dogs on the Xbox360 with Mihir before heading to the inlaws for brunch. Please to note, Rachita had baked cheesecake for the brunch as well :-). There were some awesome dosas made for brunch which were eaten; again, overate so went home and passed out. Woke up, went for bike ride, which was superb considering Sunday evenings Marine Drive & Nariman Point is always packed with people so sights & sounds were ever so intresting. Came home, played NBA2k12 & UFC Undisputed on the Xbox360 while listening to some Blues & Jazz by Muddy Waters, BB King & Eric Clapton. Dinner was some chinese ordered from China Gate at Atria Mall. On the ordered list was some Hunan Wanton Soup, Crispy Fried Potatoes, Burnt Garlic Pot Rice, Shezwan Mein foon (Rice noodles), Sui Mai & Stir Fried Chinese Greens. Post dinner, watched some UFC on Sony Six & finally ended the day with a few episodes of Game of Thrones season 2. Woke up Monday morning, realized the weather was good and went for a bike ride & some photagraphy which is featured in the slide show below. All in all, a great weekend which has set a precedence for the others to come 😉

General Chilling Weekend

So there has been no update basis the weekend. This weekend’shappenings and the delay is totally because we had the NBA Playoffs happeningand also that post went up on priority. Having said that, the weekend was totallyawesome and spent with friends and family. The details for the same are mentioned – do have a read as they not only include bike rides, drinking and coolstuff, but also some awesome burritos & cheesecake happenings!

Nariman Point

King Fisher Ultra Time!!!

Awesome Beer Glass!!!

Started off on Friday, more or less planning Friday, as there were friends going to be over and the evening was planned around alcohol and general chilling. Saturday started off with a bike ride past Nariman Point, through Marine Drive also went in & around kemps corner, peddar road and mahalakshmi.Got home and finished the mundane chores and then spent the better half of the day with Rachita ordering food, alcohol & other things required for the party . Please note, Ritika, Suneel, Vishal & Ekta were going to be over forthe party. The best part of living in India is that everything is only a call away; called relevant stores, got veggies delivered home, got bloody mary mixes,philedelphia cheese, nacho chips and all delivered home! Didn’t need to move a muscle! Vishal was kind enough to order the magic box of beers which had 18 Kingfisher Ultras & about 6 Budweisers as Suneel drinks only Bud! Post watching Supernatural & Vampire Diaries Season 3 & a quick nap, 4 was the time by which everyone decided to come over and the party began!!! Started off drinking beers and trying to make sheesha with some bad flavours as the flavours in stock were exhausted… Ritika madesome decently bad sheesha which we had and then moved on to drinking more beers.

Cheese Cake!!!

World Best Nachos!

Post that, got ravenously hungry so Rachita was kind enoughto make us some awesome Tortilla Chips with Cheese Sauce (Nachos)! We got some ready made corn chips from a company called Cornitos and made some cheese sauce at home – killer combination people! You can try the same at your end with Doritos or any other local corn chips available. Also during the beer and sheesha session, Rachita was preparing an awesome cheesecake (check the pictures for the same above). Also dinner was being managed by her which was super bean burritos… Dinner was done which was absolutely sensational & delicious & post that camethe super dessert session which was unreal!!! Then all of us were zoning and decided to call it a night as we were decently high… Sunday morning started with cleaning the bike and sorting the bike cover, etc. as the rains arearound the corner. Decided to watch some D-grade movie called Hate Story which was pleasantly decent,post which most of the day was spent watching Supernatural season 4 which we finished where in Lucifer was being resurrected! Totally awesome, guys! Must watch! Can’t wait to get my hands on season 5.

Sensational Burritos!

Also, as mentioned, started Vampire Diaries season 3 which did turn out to be very interesting. Finally dinner was spent in true gujju style eating Khakhra Sandwich. Khakhra Sandwich is basically made using Roti’s whichare made crisp post double roasting like tortillas and then regular sandwich filling is put between 2 roti’s to make an ultimate khakhra sandwich! Finally, to close an awesome & well rested weekend, Rachita & I watched JohnCarter, which according to us was pretty damn good and closed the weekend…
