Foodie Reviews: Bombay Salad Co.

When I first heard about a new salad bar in Mumbai, I imagined it to be a swanky, hip place, packed each day, with the who’s-who of the city. However, this place surely took me by surprise. Bombay Salad Co. is a tiny hole in the wall sized eatery in Bandra, bang opposite Nom Nom. As you enter, you can watch the chefs prepare delectable treats right in front of you. Their menu features salads, wraps, sandwiches, juices, smoothies, cold beverages and desserts. They serve salads in two portions – medium and large. Opt for the medium unless you’re extremely hungry.

I tried:
– The Feel Good Salad
– Strawberry Smoothie
– The Bombay Salad
– Basil Pesto & Potato Wrap

The Feel Good Salad

Strawberry Smoothie

The Bombay Salad

Basil Pesto & Potato Wrap

What impressed me:
– The concept of a salad bar in the city
– Their salads are refreshing, healthy and flavorful
– Every salad has sufficient amount of vegetables/meat and toppings
– A medium bowl of salad is enough for one person
– The strawberry smoothie is fresh and does not include additional sugar

What disappointed me:
– The service is a little slow but that’s probably because the place is still relatively new

Lights Will Guide You Home

We live in a rainbow of chaos

Sometimes you have to look at life from a different perspective

In a dim world, be a bright light

Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.

We’ve all got both – light & dark inside of us

Who is more foolish? The child afraid of the dark or the man afraid of the light?

In light there is darkness and in darkness there is light

Foodie Reviews: Salt, Dubai

While aimlessly driving through the streets of Dubai looking for a newly opened Turkish restaurant, my friend and I stumbled upon Salt, the much spoken about food-truck at Jumeirah, Dubai.

IMG_8386

Located at Kite & Surf Beach, Salt has been attracting people from all over Dubai to try the tastiest sliders in town. The set up has two or more VW hippy style vans parked in a line with the interiors converted into a kitchen. The whole outlet is a kitchen-van that faces the beach with no chairs and no tables. Though they have limited options to choose from, one can be rest assured to get addicted to their burgers, cheese fries and sodas.

I tried –
The Cheetos Chicken Burger and Cheese Fries

10882139_1004402739586409_8211488134441921620_n

What impressed me –
– The burger buns are warm,  buttery and perfectly soft.
– Mixing cheetos with chicken is an unusual but brilliant combination.
– There is sufficient amount of cheese. You can see it oozing out into the basket while it is being served to you.
– One bite into the burger and you never want it to end.
– The Cheese Fries are topped with different sauces that make it really heavy but also really yummy.

What disappointed me –
– Nothing really.

Holi also known as the ‘festival of colors’ is one of the most enthusiastically celebrated festivals in India that signifies the victory of good over evil. People leave aside all enmity and come together to enjoy this colorful day by applying various colored gulal on each other amidst loud music and drums.

Since today is Holi, I decided to share my most colorful pictures with all of you. Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy Holi. May the festival of colors fill your life with cheerful shades of love and happiness.

Living the Sula Life at SulaFest’15

When it comes to wine festivals in India, the first name that comes to the mind is SulaFest. I attended the 8th edition of this Gourmet World Music Festival held on 7th & 8th February at the gorgeous Sula Vineyards in Nashik. Little did I know that apart from wine and music, there would be lots more to look out for. Delectable food, wine tastings, live performances, tarot card readings, foot massages, grape stomping and a plethora of fun-filled activities kept the crowd busy for two days while adding to the carnival feel. The open-air Greek style amphitheatre also added to the beauty of the event. For people who could not make it this year, here’s what you missed –

Fest-goers at SulaFest’15

Wine Tasting: Chief Winemaker Ajoy Shaw conducted several wine tastings at The Tasting Cellar where he provided information on different kinds of wines and helped first timers understand wines better. Apart from that, Nick Pringle, Director of Sales (Hardys) conducted a wine and food tasting where people sampled wines from Hardys with food from the popular restaurant, Soleil by La Plage.

Stay: In order to keep up with the festival feel, fest-goers stayed at Tent City, the campsite of Sula Vineyards. Approximately 250 tents were equipped with essentials to make the weekend fun and memorable.

Food: Fest-goers could choose from a variety of restaurants like Soleil by La Plage, Woodside Inn, Cafe Zoe, Busago, B&BBQ, MM Maroosh and more. I tried the Chicken Teriyaki Burger at Woodside Inn and the Chicken Shawarma at MM Maroosh both of which were delicious enough to satisfy my hunger.

Taste the Sula Life

Bazaar: Shopaholics had found their spot at the SulaFest Bazaar that not only gave them the opportunity to shop but also gave them the opportunity to relax with a foot massage or indulge in other activities.

Music: As always, Sula lived up to its promise of being a musical extravaganza for music enthusiasts. The headlining act, Young The Giant, had the crowd going crazy over their popular track Cough Syrup and ofcourse their main man, Sameer Gadhia. However, the man who stole the show was none other than Lucky Ali. He sang old favourites like O Sanam, Na Tum Jaano Na Hum, Ek Pal Ka Jeena and others that had the crowd singing with him. His soulful performance made everyone nostalgic and transported them back to the 90’s. Apart from that, the other artists that performed were Gentleman’s Dub Club, Will And The People, Swarathma, Nucleya among others. To sum up the fest in a few words – It was definitely an awesome experience filled with loads of energy. I will surely be going back for more next year.
