The Guiltless Foodies

We are a gourmand couple who love to discover new places and eat our hearts out. Follow us for a guilt trip along the food road.

Review: Rainforest Resto-Bar, Phoenix Market city, Kurla.

An refreshing attempt to transform a simple dining experience into something which is appealing to both the eyes and the taste buds. Thanks to Rainforest chain of Themed restaurants, its no longer the boring tables, chairs, bright walls and art hanging around.

We (read Guiltless Foodies) decided to give them a visit as they had earned quite a reputation from other foodies and fellow zomatians, and of course from our personal visit to the Belapur outlet some time back (review coming up)
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, one of us being a veggie and the other a carnivore, never get the chance to justify on either of the cuisine for obvious reasons. it can never be a pure veg or a pure non veg dining. So like usual our dining experience goes as follows.

We were craving for an Indian fare that day. So, first we ordered the Junglee Paneer Tikka (if in a a jungle eat like a junglee..right?) It was the best decision ever, rather a suggestion from the captain who took the order. The paneer was succulent with a generous amount of spice from green chillies in a Mint/Spinach marination. An rating of 5/5 for this.

Now that the vegetarian starter was done with, next came the Alishaan Murg Tikka. This was somewhat similar to a chicken tandoori only with an exception of crushed peanuts. The chicken was tender and juicy, and the crisp peanuts were really adding to the taste. On a personal preference I would have loved it if it were prepared a little bit spicy. Overall an 4/5 rating.

cffd5fc56a0a89777d068e5f12ec9ad5_1429265010The portions were quite satisfactory, or rather on the heavier side. So it made sense that we stick to one vegetarian gravy with breads for the main-course. We were suggested the Moghlai paneer or the Singada Mutter, but since we already had a paneer starter and not being a fan of water chestnuts we went for the third option which was Diwani Handi. This was an assortment of vegetables in a spinach based pungent gravy. Being a chef specialty it was rather cooked exotically with the right amount of spices and a perfect combination of vegetables. This earns a clear 4.5/5 on the taste.

Talking about our experience from the beginning to end, it was just marvelous. The theme and the ambiance sure deserves a applaud. The food goes hand in hand with such an extraordinary place.

Well that’s all there is for now. We will be returning for more.

A sneak peak of what's in store this Summer at @antares_goa where @sarahtodd rustles up some lip-smacking grub and some refreshingly new Cocktails.
Opposites definitely attract. Enjoyed this Crisp and hot Malpua topped with creamy and cold Rabri @tajholidayvillage #goa at their Weekend Brunch. Ain't this a match made in heaven???
Objects in the mirror are much much much cuter than they appear! Repost from @keikothedachshund - Just so you know, I just got my front-seat ride with the drivers licence 🐾🐢 Woohoo πŸ‘…
Beer, Buddies & Brunch..Sounds like a perfect Sunday. Throwback to one such Jazz Music Sunday Brunch @driftersbrewingco with @khaipeenejalsa @indieopus @gastrofantasy @thefood_dude @founded_nemo @themumbaiglutton @supriyarajpurkar
We need our motivation on Tuesday rather than a Monday, reasons not just 1.What best but the creamy avocado and hummus on toast @thenutcrackermumbai #bandra .
Juss means a 'meal cooked with love' and it was precisely that when a group of us close friends met up over a vegetarian only unlimited Sindhi thali. The thali comprised of Sindhi Curry, Alu Took, Sai Bhaji,Daran ji Curry, Sanna Pakoda, Chaval, Bhuga Chaval, Bhindi Bassar, Rassewale Alu, Boondi Raita, Papad, Puri, Chapatti, Rose Sharbet and a dessert of our choice. This comforting regional thali is a brainchild of Rohit @thehungrymumbaikar & sure is a super duper hit πŸ‘
Our love for this amazing Indian dessert - The Jalebi is known pretty well in the family and @thechiranjeevlakshman made sure he shared a piece of our love through a picture with us. This is the famous Jalebi from Puruliya district in West Bengal served only in the Shal tree leaf. Dipped in the sweetest of syrup yet retaining its crunch. Shubho Nabo Barsho to everyone as well.
Our "TAMIL NEW YEAR SADHYA" at home today was Rice with Beans Poriyal, Urulai Roast, Manga Curry, Thair Pachchadi, Pal Payasam, Murungakkai Sambhar, & Vadaam. Wishing you all a very Happy Vishu & Baisakhi.
A platefull of Goodness. The Grilled Cottage Steak with fried rice, grilled vegetables and french fries was one of the best we've had @pickleandpint @tungahotels . Apart from being flavourful this meal was a great experience. Pic @shubhamkatariyaphotography
Say 'Hello to the Queen' the most delectable dessert of fried bananas, cinnamon, biscuit crumble, vanilla ice cream, and chunks of juicy strawberries.
