Many people are blessed with a sweet tooth. But, I thank my Creator for blessing me with sweet gums and I am often in search of places that can serve them well. Therefore, the information of opening up of Hyderabad’s popular baked delights shop Karachi Bakery in Mumbai was a welcome news.
Until this Mumbai store started operations, I would depend on family and friends visiting Hyderabad and I would hand over a list of biscuits they had to fetch as a mandate on their return to Mumbai. But, now I presume they will breathe a sigh of relief as I can source all my stock of yummy biscuits from the bakery’s Mumbai store in Linking Road locality of Bandra West.
So, without wasting much time I rushed to the store on a Saturday evening to grab my favorite biscuits. The place also dishes up scrumptious cakes, pies, pizza & pasta as well. Also, there is a small space at the rear of the store where a handful of people can make themselves comfortable and enjoy the fares at the store itself.
So, here is a look at my gluttonous exploration of the Karachi Bakery, Mumbai:
For the generation that has grown in the 80s and early 90s, the hawkers cart or thela was the only place to buy numerous street food delicacies especially GOLA/CHUSKI. In a north Indian dialect this hawker’s cart is referred to as rekadi. This is the genesis of the name of the place Rekadi Café started by Ketan Ranga, Pratik Shah, Urvashi Seth Ranga and Hemang Shah in Mulund suburb of Mumbai in March this year.
The place indeed boasts of a flamboyant cart having all the requisites to prepare the gola – the traditional metal ice crusher and colorful syrup bottles. Colorful aqua lighting and cart wheels beautify the place. A small space to house stools is created where people can sit and enjoy select chaat, sandwiches and pizza as well that are all reasonably priced.
So, here is a look at my gluttony at Rekadi Café:
The mere mention of kebabs has me salivating. So, when I read about the ROYAL KEBAB TRAIL taking place till 17th April, 2016 at Mostly Grills, the rooftop barbecue restaurant at The Orchid Hotel, I could not resist the temptation of exploring it. I landed up with my foodie friends at the restaurant only to be welcomed by a site that resembled a scene straight out of the famous Mughal-e-Azam movie. The place was done up like an emperor’s court in the Mughal era with the staff adorning attire of the period.
