Review: The J, Churchgate, Mumbai


Whoever said French Fries should be considered as accompaniments shall be proved wrong by ‘The J’. For it’s no longer “Yes I want fries with that” anymore. It is “I’ll have more fries with that fries”.

unnamed_1Like they say ‘Big things come in small packages’ this place is hard to miss even though it is a small outlet inside a building, very close to Samrat Thali in Churchgate. We bumped into this place when we were looking for alternatives to Samrat, and to our surprise the menu and the reviews of fellow Zomatians just dragged us there.

the-J_1 As it was our first visit we were quite indecisive, but were made aware of all the must haves by the guy at the counter. Thanks to him we ended up with the most amazing experience one could have out of simple fries.

The combinations and varieties are endless, They serve their famous Home Lovin Fries, Burgers, Wraps, and Desserts. We were suggested to try the Chilli Cheese fries. Trust me, it can’t get better than this. It was a great combination of a semi sweet chilli sauce along with melted cheese. Like all the fries get a bit soggy in a while, this one got soggy too, but still, no complaints. The Sauce and Cheese just made it perfect.

We then had the Pizza Wedges, which was potato wedges marinated and tossed in Pizza sauce and Cheese. Looked simple but tasted amazing. I would prefer it to be a little more spicy.

2a08c3abdd153365ac8d772e89a23cdd_1430236727_640_640_thumb_1Following the vegetarian order I tried the Chicken fries called ‘J in the Jungle’. It was the similar chilli cheese fries only with an addition of shredded chicken. It was a perfect match. The marination was light so that the chilli and cheese could blend.

The last order for that day was Of course the Burger. We decided on the Vegetable burger, which was a basic potato patty crumb fried to perfection along with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. More like a Indian version of the burger.

Everything in this place was worth visiting, the food, the packaging and the pricing. Sure to visit this place till we’ve tried almost everything from the menu.

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.
