Satay Food Fest & More At Imperial China : Delicious Diaries Reloaded At Hilton Mumbai

Image
I absolutely love Chinese food, yup, the Indian Chinese version. But over the years, my sensitive stomach has started rejecting the overly oily, spices and gravies laden chinese food we binge on throughout our college days without a second thought. I knew that my feast at Imperial China would be devoid of any such worries and I was so on point! Was here for a sneak peek at their ongoing Satay Food Fest and ended up feasting on some classic as well as innovative delicacies.

The ambiance is classic heritage, color scheme muted but elegant, choicest of arts and artifacts elevating the ambiance, staff is simply delightful, providing warmth in every interaction, service is quite fast, quality of food avant garde as expected from a brand such as Hilton. In the ongoing Satay Food Fest, we have a choice of veg as well as non veg satays. We tried and simply loved Paneer as well as Mushroom & Cheese satays. Pay special attention to accompanying sauces with every dish, they are brilliant. A …

Breakfast Menu Indulgence : NRI - Not Really Indian, BKC

Image
What a beautiful place! Elegant, perfect service, warm staff, beautiful continental ambiance, gives the fine-dine feel from beginning to end! It was a pleasure to be here for reviewing their breakfast menu which has something for everyone, delicious + healthy combo with calories per dish clearly written in the menu. Thanks to the kind Chef who made us try literally everything on the menu (most are vegetarian dishes with some non veg options too)  and I personally recommend -
wholesome Multigrain Porridge with Berries, Cinnamon Honey and Cocoa,
delicious crunchy Do Pyaaz Mirchi paratha,
sweet and drool-worthy Moringa Yogurt with Berries, Nuts, Fruits and Honey,
and old fashioned shake with nuts-beware, the shakes have the maximum calories though (like that would deter a foodie like me!)

Everything else is really good too, quality ingredients, fantastic presentation, each dish is of international standard and now I will be planning to land here for a lunch or dinner meal soon :…

Say Cheese Festival At 1441 Pizzeria : Delicious Indulgence

Image
Cute outlet with earthy yet vibrant ambiance and fantastic staff serving delicious, fresh, thin crust wood-fired oven pizzas, where we can choose from unlimited toppings, now how does life get any better than this! We had a half and half pizza with bell peppers, olives, broccoli + mushrooms, corn and onions. The sauce they used just elevated it to another level, and I am still drooling over it. 

We were here to review their Say Cheese Festival so we tried Stracciatella Pizza with rocket leaves, tomatoes, stracciatella, parmesan cheese along with Greek Cheese Pizza with white sauce,mozzarella,spinach, onions ,feta cheese. It was a half and half which tasted gourmet delish and I wish I had 4 stomachs so we could try all other varieties. Among dessert, we recommend the creamy and dreamy Chocolate Mousse + Nutella Pizza which was not overly sweet, good for someone like me with not much affinity for sweet things :) Suffice to say, will be back very soon. 






Broaster Chicken New Menu : Veggie Deliciousness Galore!

Image
Been to Broaster Chicken earlier too and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of all the options available for veggies too! So when I was here with my friends for checking out their new additions to the menu,I knew I was in for a wonderful time and they did not disappoint us one bit. In fact, my friends are non veggies but they had mostly veg items with me and loved them all :) The ambiance is modern, rustic, eclectic, geared towards sending out a solid relaxed vibe and very young at heart too. Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi has created a marvellous menu keeping in mind the Indian palate and there is something for everyone, prices do seem a bit high but it is worth it for the quality and quantity,

We tried and recommend-
Firangi Palak Paneer Dip i.e. creamy spinach cheese dip, soft paneer chunks, grilled pita bread,

Arabiata Italiano i.e. Golden French Fries, cheesy cream sauce, arabiata sauce and jalapenos,

Crusty Cheese Veg Burger -a full cheesy delicacy with a dash of smoked B…

​Did you know John Cena, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Bill Gates, Obama and Saina Nehwal are all in Mumbai right now? And so are Abraham Lincoln, Michael Jackson, Steve Jobs? Before you point me in the direction of nearest asylum, I would like to point your interest towards a wonderful travel destination in the middle of this concrete jungle called Mumbai. Make your date with Red Carpet Wax Museum right away because this just took my breath away! 

Everyone knows about Madame Tussauds but not everyone can personally visit their famed outlets abroad. Fret not as we can now experience the same joy of meeting and greeting the wax counterparts of some of the biggest global celebrities at R City Mall, Ghatkopar West, Mumbai, 1st floor, South Wing at this fabulous wax museum where posing with the statues is actually encouraged. This was my first visit to such a place and I was blown away, so was my family. These folks have spent 5 years bringing this idea to fruition, every person…
