The Food Fest

Crazy Bombay Rains!!!

Yesterday was crazy considering the awesome food places we went to for both lunch & dinner – it was super awesome so decided to write about it on the blog. So the way this played out was that the morning was totally crazy with the city being lashed by heavy rains. Somehow Rachita, Mihir & me rode through the same & reached work. While at work, got random calls basis traffic jams across the city, also social media was going crazy about the jams, etc. We decided to leave early by lunch so as to avoid the traffic nightmare. Though come noon, the day suddenly was bright & sunny and there wasn’t an iota or indication of rains.

Yummy Salad!!!

This is when we decided to go for lunch at the local mall. On reaching Inorbit, we were contemplating where to eat considering the amount of options availiable, right from the Food Court which offers everything from Mcdonalds, Subway, Tibbs Frankie, etc., to stand alone places like Kareem’s and Pot Pourri. After much contemplation, we finally decided to go to Pot Pourri. Rachita & me have been to the place before – some time ago – but Mihir hadn’t and thus the excitment. At Pot Pourri we realized they had a buffet for lunch which was for Rs 440/-. Mihir & I opted for the same while Rachita ordered a chicken prep off the menu.

Pretty Damn Good!!!

On the Buffet counter, there were 2 soups to choose from, the veg and non veg. We had the pumpkin &  chicken soup, post which Mihir went and got some awesome salad of the live counter, the same was super yum! After soups & salad, we decided to try the pizza – the same, unfortunately, wasn’t that good. It was a bit dry & cold, also the sauce on top barely had any flavor. Moved to the main course wherein there was pasta, rice, madras curry, korean chicken & rice. I opted for some korean chicken & rice, Mihir opted for the pasta, fish curry & korean chicken. The main course was total value for taste & money & was devoured in minutes & then finally there was dessert, which was Tiramisu & Orange Souffle. The same was also pretty nice! Overall, the experience was extremely pleasant – the ambiance of the place is casual & the waiters are also extremely helpful and polite. That just takes a simple lunch experience to another level. Even though we didn’t drink, we checked & the Alcohol is well priced & the menu for the same is decently extensive.

Superb Stuff!!!

Steak , Chips & Barbecued Onions!!!

Post the lunch, the evening was something we were still super excited about as the POA was to go to our favorite Sizzler place in town – Kobe Sizzlers. While this was going to be a family affair, the promise of Sensational Steak & other goodies available there were definitely upside. Reached Kobe by about 7:30pm with the jing bang of about 16 people. Kobe doesn’t take bookings so it is first come first serve based policy, Oh ya! the 16 people included the in-laws and our immediate family. Everyone more or less ordered Sizzlers except for Mihir & me who weren’t so keen on sizzlers as we wanted to eat some hard core yummy steak, biker style! 🙂 Went ahead and ordered a steak bun & also an egg & cheese bun to start with. The same was totally awesome – bread just rightly roasted on the pan and the egg with cheese in between just totally brilliant! The steak bun was totally in another league as with every bite you could taste the yumminess. Post this, we ordered a portion of steak, chips & onions to end our meal. The main course absolutely stunning, as you can see in the picture. Also a note for people who don’t like their meat too hardcore, if you are at Kobe’s and ordering, do not order the steak, go for chicken instead, though if you are the hardcore variety, do not miss the steak! The Sizzlers are to die for at Kobe& they customize them to your taste. Also the burgers are super juicy succulent & all the wonderfull things you expect. Finally, after being stuffed silly, walked home which is about a 1 km away & called it a night.

Brilliant Steak Bun!!!

Bikes, Beers & Barbecue

Bikes, Beers & Barbecue was the POA with Rachita, Ritika, Ekta, Vishal, Suneel, Anus & me for last evening! The whole thing came about on Saturday while we were celebrating Ritika’s birthday and, as always, the discussion revolved around food. The minute we figured that the in-laws were going to be out of town for the week, we had a POA ready. It was quickly decided that we were going to have a barbecue with loads of MEAT! This was the moment where Ritika & Rachita started planning the menu. Through Monday & Tuesday multiple visits to online sites were made, menu options were discussed & final list of food was decided.

Some of the Awesomeness!!!

On the menu….crazy stuff….right from –

1)      Sheekh Kebabs

2)      Spicy Chorizo Ham

3)      Spicy Cumin Chicken Sausages

4)      Paneer, Potatoes & Corn

5)      Bacon

Cold cuts were bought on Tuesday by Rachita & the Sheekh Kebab  was being made by Ritika. Wednesday evening was looking awesome! Chicken would also be marinated on Wednesday morning. Tuesday started the day as always with a bike ride past Prabhadevi & Shivaji Park. Thankfully, there was no rains so life was sorted. Also went and tanked up the bike… Ran through the day at work really quickly in all the excitement of the evening ….  also forgot to take tiffin to work. So, had to rush to the nearby mall to grab lunch, then left work, headed home quickly & got to peddar road by 6:30pm. Also carried a bottle of Southern Comfort for the evening, Vishal had ordered some Budweiser’s and Kingfisher Strongs as well, so now we were set for a crazy evening!

Sheekh Kebab Mix

Yummmmyyyyyy!!!

Southern Comfort & Beers kick-started the evening though the same was topped off with some super duper food. To start with, Rachita made some awesome spicy cumin chicken sausages with sautéed onions which was mouth wateringly spectacular!!! Then came in the veg stuff -corn, paneer & potato which was unreal. this was quickly followed by the chicken and the seekh kebabs which were divine. Post going through decent amounts of alco & food, there were, as always, multiple drunk discussions about people who like Ritika, etc. Bacon & spicy chorizo ham were brought on the table…..this is when the world came to a standstill & the food was totally devoured… Post this, and a couple more drinks, the discussion shifted to a discussion around the Nano – the mini Tata Car and it’s mileage – from there the discussion escalated into whether the car is safe and what the good points of the car are versus the bad. At this point, Ritika who is a Tata employee, on the bad points started severly outraging which was like weird but funny,  (She is going to kill me for putting this). Finally, post everything, we had some awesome chocolate cupcakes made by Ritika, and then we ended the evening by 10:30pm. All in all, crazy amounts of fun, gossip, food, alcohol was had to make the evening totally unforgettable!!!

Chorizo Ham & Bacon!
