Porto and Poie, Juhu

Newly opened place in Juhu, created quite the buzz before being opened. We were invited for a tasting so here’s our say — Goan food should be homely, comforting and frankly speaking a no frills kinda meal. Porto and Poie isn’t the first attempt at ‘fine’ Goan food, O Pedro opened late last year and it didn’t compare to its sister Restaurant Bombay Canteen.   … Continue reading Porto and Poie, Juhu

Redefining “Fine Dine” with WowTables

Imagine a TVC, where a typical presenter’s voice is heard saying, “Want to dine fancy, but are afraid it’ll cost you a bomb?” Or “Want to take your girlfriend out on a fancy date but it’s the end of the month and your wallet is almost empty?” “Jee haan, Bhaiyoon aur Beheno….” Blah Blah!!! For some reason we all think of ‘Fine-Dining’ as a big scary monster … Continue reading Redefining “Fine Dine” with WowTables

Valentines 2015 — Where to go and What (Not-So-Naughty) things to do!!

Valentines is just a day away, and mentioned here a few things that you could try with your loved ones.

And this is of course all over Mumbai (Bombay) so don’t be afraid Foodies, hope you choose something from the following and do write to us! (Do it for the love of food, don’t get caught holding hands — You will end up married!!)

1) The Marriott: Well we are a little biased towards this group of hotels, but what can we do, we really love their service-food-decor and everything they do for their guests! Love is in the air at JW Marriott Mumbai this February with a range of bespoke and elegant romantic experiences designed to ensure that you have the most memorable Valentine’s Day celebration with your loved one.

Arola at the JW Marriott, Juhu.

If wishful thinking was a thing, the meal at Arola would definitely be counted as a result of that. Chef Sergi Arola, a Spanish Chef has a string of restaurants around the world and he chose the Marriott in Juhu to be the perfect setting for his Indian venture. Arola, being predominantly a Catalan Cuisine based restaurant serves some great food, both visually and taste wise. Our good friends at Madison India, this time Reem Iqbal mailed us regarding an interesting concept that’s being hosted at Arola called Arola Musica. It is a Fusion Music night where local and international DJs team up with percussionists to perform every Friday and Saturday. And while the event was taking place, Reem also wanted us to check out the Spanish delights that were being dished up by Chef Manuel. This was one interesting night that we really want to share with you, as not only did we come back extremely happy with the food but also extremely satisfied with the entire experience.

The Foodie:

Like we mentioned earlier and choose to believe, this meal was a result of wishful thinking. I have been in love with  Arola food since the IFBA awards. And I remember mentioning to our Chef from the Bombay Foodies, about how I really wanted to try all the food there. It was a remarkable co-incidence that we happened to get an invitation to taste more of their food the following week! We were actually invited to check out Arola Musica, a Fusion Music event along with their extensive Spanish cuisine menu. To be honest when I’m asked to attend a musical night which includes key words such as, ‘at the bar’ ‘DJ music’ ‘fusion’ it automatically creates a very noisy scene in my head. After a long day, apart from the food I wasn’t sure how keen I was on a loud night. My fault completely because all I needed to do was read the mail, a little more attentively :).
