The Super Bike & Food Weekend

It’s been a while since I wrote about the weekend that was; the weekend that just went by was pretty damn awesome & so I decided to write about the same. Friday evening started off with some general chilling at home didn’t do much just marathoned Supernatural season 7 with Rachita. Also the plan for next days lunch was being figured with Ritika. Before I forget, Friday evening we also started playing Sleeping Dogs on the Xbox360 which was awesome. The game has a brilliant feel and has hints of Yakuza & Shenmue, 2 of our all time favorite games!

Goo & Avenjer ignore the cycle 🙂 Lol!!!

Sleeping Dogs on the Xbox360

Astro!!!

Saturday, though, began with a bang as I had 2 bikes at my disposal – Ekta’s Royal Enfield & my Bajaj Avenger – Ekta was in Baroda for the weekend & had left her bike at my place. Gaurav & I took the bikes out for a ride which was totally awesome! We rode past Haji Ali & Worli Seaface braving the rains; when we started there wasn’t an iota of rain, but when we reached Peddar Road it started drizzling; Gaurav & I decided to continue as the drizzle wasn’t fazing us. On the way back from Haji Ali, though, there was a decent downpour which we managed & reached home safe. Post some general chilling, shower, etc. we played some more Sleeping Dogs on the Xbox360, exploring the open world finishing mini missions, etc. Come 9:30am we needed to take Astro to the vet for a general check up & then meet Ritika, Mihir & Yooti for lunch. We were done at the vet by about 11:00am & proceeded for lunch after dropping Ash home :-). So lunch was going to happen at Soul Fry Casa, a restaurant serving Goan food at Fountain / Kala Ghoda. Ritika, though, was not informed about the same, as whenever we have decided to go to this restaurant or discussed going there, something or the other has gone wrong. This time we decided to keep the POA a suprise. Ritzzzz met Mihir at Churchgate station on the pretext of going to some place around that area and once Mihir got her around the restaurant he whisked her in. She was pleaseantly surprised, if I may say so myself.

Love the Ambiance at Casa Soul Fry

Beer!!!

Pickle!!!

Moving onto the restaurant which has a brilliant old world charm with memoriabilia across the walls; also the furniture is from an era which you just dont see nowadays. The plates & glasses you get are of copper, menu has a good balance of Veg, Non Veg & Sea Food. We decided to start off with a few drinks – I was having beer, Mihir had ordered a brilliant sugarcane based cocktail, Ritika was having a watermelon Martini, Yooti ordered a Vodka based cocktail the name of which i cannot remember & Rachita who doesn’t drink alco was having a mocktail. Ritika & Mihir had already ordered some Prawns & Rawas, Rachita added to the same by ordering some chicken moelho. Please note here, Mihir & I haven’t had prawns in about 20 years as I have an allergy to the same. Though once the food was on the table, we decided to try the prawns which were exceptional and also eat the Rawas which was divine. Lunch ordered was some chicken in red gravy & because we ate shell fish everyone got super excited that there was no allergic reaction and ordered a crab sukha with some nans. The food was simply awesome! We went through everything & loved every moment of it. Special mention to the Naans which are the best I have ever had. If you are in the fountain area, then you must try Soul Fry Casa it is CUMPOLSORY!!!

Awesome Spread!!!

Then headed home, slept for a bit, while Ritika & Rachita went shopping. Evening dinner was Falafal which Rachita had made. The brilliance of the same cannot be explained. After dinner, watched some UFC on Sony Six, then moved to Supernatural and then passed out.

Sunday Bike Ride!!!

Yummy!!!!

Sunday morning started off with an early morning bike ride on Ekta’s Royal Enfield aka Goo, which was followed by another bike ride on my Bajaj Avenger, aka Avenjer. The weather was perfect, cloudy skies accompanied by some sensational winds…. Marine Drive, Nariman Point, Haji Ali & Worli Seaface were passed on both bikes one after the other…. rode for a good hour & half :-). Once home, finished Astro’s bath, then played Sleeping Dogs again for a bit, Also helped Mihir pack as he was heading for a week’s vacation. Lunch in true gujju style was sev tameta nu shak (fried gram dough noodles in tomato gravy); then it was nap time. Woke in the afternoon, watched some Supernatural again, had a few beers. For dinner, Rachita decided to make some super duper awesome boiled egg sandwiches with tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, onions, her blend of secret herbs & eggs marinated in mayo & mustard. Matlab mouth watering awesomeness it was! Again watched some more episodes of Supernatural and then passed out. All in all, a brilliant food & bike weekend 🙂

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…

The Weekend with a Agenda

Saturday Morning Bike Ride View

Ritzzzzzzzzzzz!!!

The weekend was a roller coaster ride with a clear agenda this time – bike ride, movies & serials to be watched, good food to be eaten, beers & alco, Basketball & other sports, family time & general chilling… Friday began with a bang as the Miami Heat beat the Indiana Pacers in game 6 of their series. Lebron & Dwayne Wade played some inspired ball in this series. Post that, in the evening, kept it easy – watched Supernatural and called it a day. Saturday morning began with a bike ride past Marine Drive to Nariman Point twice over as the weather was spectacular and add to that there was zero traffic. Post which got home, made plans to go buy DVD’s; also by now had figured plans with Ritika to chill through the day at home, buy her phone and do some baking. Please note, the baking was being done by Rachita & Ritika who are both gifted cooks 🙂 .

Heat vs Pacers

Post going & buying oodles of DVDs with Mihir & Astro, came home & decided to go nowhere as the heat was killing. Decided after much debate to order Pizzas & Pastas from Karma, which were spectacular and were devoured in a matter of minutes. Post that had Sheesha & passed out while Ritika & Rachita baked the most amazing Lemon Tarts! After waking up, got Ritika’s phone delivered home, (yup this happens only in India type moment) where in you call a mobile seller tell him you want a XYZ mobile handset and want to sell your old handset; post pricing is agreed upon the guy delivers the phone home… Having said that, Ritika bought the Samsung Nexus which is an awesome phone. The evening was spent drinking beers with Vishal & cooking burgers; Bikes, Beers & Burgers is truly an amazing combination. The day was closed with another session of Supernatural.

Celtics vs Sixers

Budweiser!!!

Super Steak

Sunday morning was spent cleaning the bike; the same took a good hour also checked all the accessories like bags, foot rests, etc. to make sure everything is on track. Then watched Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers in game 7 of the eastern conference playoffs. A note here, my Dad, Mihir & I have  been following the NBA for over 25 years &  totally love it.  Boston vs. Miami in the eastern conference finals is going to be one killer series. Having said that, Oklahoma City Thunder vs. San Antonio Spurs is also going to be a legendary series. Sunday also is Astro’s oil massage and bath day, so finished that & confirmed brunch at Smoke House Deli with Ritika, Mihir, Rachita & Yooti. The same had been planned on Saturday itself. Ate like we had never seen food – bacon, fish, chicken, beef and beers were had I had an awesome steak, post which got home crashed. Woke up, decided to have an alcohol free evening, chilled for a bit, ate some Lemon tarts, helped the Mrs. with packing Pani Puri (Indian Street Food) for the in-laws then watched another episode of Supernatural. The IPL finals were also on where the Chennai Super Kings took on Kolkata Knight Riders. CSK was going for a 3peat while KKR was trying to win its first IPL Championship. Rachita & I are not big cricket fans and so we decided to watch a hindi movie. This was after we totally devoured the super awesome Pani Puris J. Watched the Karisma Kapoor starrer, Dangerous Ishq, which was decently interesting -seemed to be heavely inspired from the book, Many Lives Many Masters.

Bike Looking Cool Post Clean Up

All in all, the weekend which clearly had an agenda of bike ride, movies to be watched, serials to be watched, good food to be eaten, beers & alco, Basketball & other sports, family time & general chilling came to an end with each item being ticked off basis completion. This was like a mini bucket list, which was quite cool! Also to conclude KKR did win the IPL Finals & the San Antonio Spurs beat the Oklahoma City Thunder and lead the 7 game series 1-0. Writing this post made me realize how much I am already missing the weekend & how much I hate Mondays… Nonetheless, tonight there are leftover Burgers for dinner with fries so Monday might just not be all that bad 🙂

The Extended Weekend Part 2

Monday Morning Ride View

Part 1 of the same was around the details of Saturday& Sunday; though, as mentioned the Holiday continued till Tuesday, considering Monday & Tuesday were holidays!!!! The excitement of ending Sunday night without Monday being a working day is absolutely one of the greatest feelings in the world… As always Monday morning started off with a bike ride across Nariman Point, Walkeshwar & Breach Candy. The excitement of the ride coupled with the excitement of Monday being a holiday, & to top it off, we were going to watch The Avengers (we covered that in yesterday’s post) was totally insane!!!

Fiery Idli

Awesomeness

The next cool thing was going to watch Avengers on our own Bajaj Avenger….this was so awesome! Again, this is the moment to mnention the greatness of the movie and how awesomely awesome it is and all should watch it (specially if you own a Bajaj Avenger somehow the experience multiplies exponentially). Post the movie, we went down to Walkeshwar to Dakshinayan which is this small joint which serves some great South Indian food. Their Dosas, different kinds of idli-wadas, punniyaram, bisibele rice & filter coffee are to die for. Another thing I forgot to mention was that the gang was going to meet up for in the evening for a food & alco party; please to note, our friend Ritika was also going to be gracing us with her presence – she also loves food & alco as much as us 🙂 The menu for the evening was Pizza pot pies, home brewed beer, whiskey, Southern Comfort & the hulk themed soft centred baked cheesecake. Afternoon was spent preparing for the party; most of the same was done by the lovely Mrs while most of us had passed out. Evening was spent drinking & stuffing ourselves with yummy food, beer & more alco…

Sidhivinayak Temple

Tuesday started with a bike ride – a trip past Sidhivinayak (as always) which is a Ganpati temple & has a huge following; also as it was Tuesday which is Ganpati day; there are crowds lining up from 12:00am onwards! Devotees walk from across the city and outstation to the temple, it’s a pretty big deal and all who visit the temple believe that their prayers get answered. Post Prabhadevi, I moved to Shivaji Park where in there was crazy security; at that moment, I realised it was Maharashtra Day & Labour Day and thus there were celebrations and security measures. I went past Reclamation where in there were Royal Enfield Riders assembling for a Rally. Post Reclamation, rode all the way back to Nariman Point and then home. After a well deserved shower and cold coffee with bailey’s irish cream, I crashed in bed as the plan for the day was to laze & do nothing… Starting from 11:00 am in the morning to 11:00 pm in the night. Rachita and me watched episodes of Supernatural season 1 & 2 only had a few breaks for lunch & dinner. All in all, an awesome extended weekend!!!
