Mumbai Cafe

Pleasant weather after a brief spell of rain, decided to go for a long drive and the first place that came to my mind was Mumbai Cafe, in Padur. I’ve been to this place long ago and really wanted to taste some nice authentic Mumbai stuff again.  Here’s my experience from my last visit, more than a year back.  Also heard that they have renovated their interiors! Sure enough, it was nice and a packed house when we entered. I had everything ready in my mind and ordered as soon as we managed to get a seat. Continue reading

Goli Vada Pav

During my many visits to Shirdi, both via Mumbai and Pune, a few things we would never miss during the journey was eating Bhel, and Vada Pav followed by a cup of Chai. So just trying to find a nice place in Chennai which serves a Vada Pav as good as that.

Heard from a few fellow-foodies about this place, been on my to-do list for a while, visited Goli vada pav in Velachery. It was just OK, nothing really outstanding. The frozen patties and all that packing gives more a feel of a burger at Mc Donalds, than a typical street food. Taste-wise, it was not bad. The Sabudana vada was just so so.  Overall, not very impressive.  A couple of other places on my list and hopefully can get a vada pav close to the authentic one.  Will let you know 🙂
