Restaurant Review: Spices and Flavours

26 May

Spices and flavours is a nice restaurant located in Chowpatty, Mumbai.  The décor and ambiance are the usual but one thing that drew me to the place in particular was the rooftop seating. However, the ambiance is not really what one visits this place for.

True to its name, every dish at Spices and Flavours is packed in taste and flavour. Innovation is the key here and they have a little something creative to do with every dish. For example, the Grande Nachos that we had was presented with Tortilla chips arranged in the form of a volcano and beans on the inside. We made the most of the variety they offered in cuisines and tried continental, chinese as well as North Indian options. The star of the night, however, was the open cheese roomali roti which is basically like a crispy khakhra topped with cheese, tomato and coriander.

At the end of the meal, we also got 11.25% cashback on the bill as a part of the BurnBill coalition loyalty program that I am a part of. The cash back was given in the form of points, simply on presenting my mobile number and these points are redeemable with any of the other merchants on the BurnBill network!

Spices and flavours is a gujju haunt as it is a veg only restaurant. They made all of our preparations Jain for us on request without any compromise on taste. All in all, it was a great time that we had here! Looking forward to coming back here soon!

Restaurant Review: WTF! Andheri

9 Apr

Being on the hunt for a dinner location last night, a friend happened to mention Andheri’s WTF! We’d heard quite a lot about the place and being in the vicinity, we decided to give it a try. On reaching there, we found out that Tuesday nights are Karaoke Nights there! Splendid!

In one word, WTF! can be described as ‘youthful’. There is a certain vibe that the place has which appeals to the youth to a large extent. The crowd is great and the atmosphere brilliant. The menu, however, isn’t extensive. There are hardly any items that can be considered as main course. The menu comprises primarily of finger food. Nevertheless, the food items were delicious.

We tried the Paneer Tikka and Jalapeno Poppers first. The Paneer was melt-in-the-mouth soft and the jalapeno poppers were loaded with cheese (automatically winning brownie points from me, the eternal cheese lover). We also tried the Veg Naan Pizza and Mini Veg Burger, both of which tasted great. None of the food is too heavy on the pocket either

Being a teetotaler, I didn’t try any of the alcoholic beverages, but they seemed to be reasonably priced. My “Son of a Peach” (LOL!) mocktail proved to be the perfect, refreshing summer drink. The service was pretty quick and the staff was ready to help and polite. No complaints of that front.

And what was the best part? Being a part of the  Burn Bill loyalty programme, we even got a 7.5% cashback on our bill. A pleasant surprise indeed at the end of the meal!

All in all, we had a blast belting out the songs on the Karaoke. With good food, nice ambience and of course, Burn Bill’s cash back offer, WTF! is a cool place to chill with friends. I’m sure to go back here soon.
