GLUTTONY @ MASALA BAR, MUMBAI
On an insanely hectic day in an unforgiving traffic situation, I made my way into this chic lounge plonked near the Carter Road promenade. I was looking forward to catching up with fellow foodies from Food Bloggers Association, India (FBAI). Indeed what awaited me in terms of a wonderful FBAI Soiree hit me as soon I made my way to the place through candle-lit staircases.
My first impression of the place was it’s a perfect hangout to catch up with friends over some delicious food or simply spend a relaxing evening soaking into some good music as the bartender stirs up a quirky cocktail for you.
As I settled in, time seemed to gallop away in the atmosphere of revelry the place had managed to conjure up. The serving staff were at their feet ensuring guests receive their refills of invigorating beverages and nibbles from a specially curated menu of hors d'oeuvres.
So, here is look at my experience with the grub for the evening:
HORS D’OEUVRES – VEGETARIAN
HORS D’OEUVRES – NON-VEGETARIAN
Since I was going to be at the wheel, I settled for the MASALA PUNCH mocktail as my thirst-quencher for the evening. This was a very unusual yet exceptional concoction of masala chai or tea, apple & orange juices and a dash of kaffir lime.
The vibe of the place, the hospitality of the jovial staff and the food of course ensured I had an enjoyable time. Also, ‘The Big Bang Night’ celebration every Tuesday provides patrons with exciting BOGO (Buy One Get One free) offer on cocktails and select drinks.
So, do try out this place and let me know of your experience.
Till then, HAPPY EATING…
