Mumbai is a name, Bombay is an emotion
It’s all about the vibe at this place . Very well thought decora combined with uniqueness and elegance is Bombay adda


Taking you inside Bombay Adda . This was my favourite seating amongst the various sections they have . They also have LOVE LOCK wall !
I liked the dining open seating section as the decor has been very well thought . It is a combination of elegance and minimalist. Use of artistic wooden furniture , green walls and lot of surprise photogenic corners and showpieces has made this place stand out . It has an eloquent outdoor seating area which just spells lot of positivity and good vibes . It’s gonna be AMAZE in winters .

Further they also have a lounge which turns into a crazy club . The club also has great wooden decor with lot of sparks in between like masks , lights and lot of drinks.

Starting with the drinks :

Monsoon season makes one crave for buttta. They had a very good idea of having butta along with sweet corn cut as well on the side .
This weather has some magic . And I crave for roadside food but due to hygiene reasons I avoid them.

I loved their Margarita pizza as it was just very simple yet great .


Mushroom Pasta was unique and tasted good too.

Further coming to desserts ,


Loved their tiramisu as it was just very subtle , creamy yet not sweet and the coffee flavour hit directly.

Red olives at Powai is a multi cuisine restaurant having a fine dine ambience . It’s always buzzing with crowd with the corporate crowd around . They have a humongous variety of dishes . My picks are oriental and Indian .

 

This one is the paneer kadhai tikka. The cottage cheese was perfectly soft and marinated in a light tossed gravy keeping the textures intact . The bit of roasted on the side just completed the dish .
IMG-20170705-WA0010
Hummus platter with crisp pita . Hummus could have been more flavoursome with use of tahini and chickpeas.

Mushroom cappuccino . As unique does it sound ; so unique does it taste . It’s a soup . Yes you read it right . I loved the combination. Cream of mushroom sprayed with coffee took the definition of soup to another level .

 


Also they had some fun mocktails like Berry banana crush . Yes it sounds different. But for the ones who like banana flavour ; it’s great . Further they had the kiwi Martini and also their special concoctions .

 


Coming to the main course ,
Burnt garlic fried rice (veg) ; it was wholesome . Rices have to be cooked well for them to taste well . And it was cooked really well thereby the taste of garlic was lingering.

Be your own time

IMG-20170707-WA0006.jpg
We always are running
Even in sleep we are running in our minds
We are travelling in cabs running of what errands we have to do
Why can’t we just stop?
We want to get ahead .
We wana do so much
Competition is eating you and making you it’s slave
Rather let it be your stimulation.
You are running . Running insanely .
Just to be more ….
It’s okay if you become CEO 👨‍💼 two years later than others .
But you enjoyed . You LIVED moments
Just walk on the road and look at the trees . Just sit on a park bench and listen to music and not think of anything
And for Three nights don’t work on studies just because you wana pamper yourself .
Go take a trip even if you are broke for the thrill and moment .

It’s OKAY . As you have an entire life of 30s to shed responsibilities and live for your wife and children and the never ending list .
Right now is the TIME FOR YOU .
Be YOUR OWN TIME .
Pause . Enjoy . LIVE . BREATHE .
Life around is beautiful
You deserve it ♥️
