When in Doubt… Just Bingge !

When you have a stressful day at work and home and kitchen is the last place you want to go to, head to Just Bingge. A quaint place with a not so noisy ambience but some good happy music playing on the back ground. One could order and sit at peace either with a book or relive your childhood memories over a game of scrabble or Uno.

Speaking of luck, the day we were called to review the place by one of our favourites, Pooja Trehan Dhamecha of @nuvofoodies, we indeed did have a very stressful day at work, and we were more than glad to take it up.

This tiny outlet looked like it had it all. Bright, innovative and peppy interiors with books hanging from the ceiling and a bicycle mounted on the wall. There were small miniature show pieces which adorned the café and made the whole ambience very chilled out.

Our evening started with some ‘Eggplant Parmigiana’. Quiet a delicacy is all we can say. Thin strips of eggplant roasted to perfection and topped with marinara sauce and loads and loads of cheese. Each bite had extreme burst of flavours making you crave for more and more.

Fries are a man’s best friend. The ‘La- pout’ were simple long slender fries but the highlight was the cheese and mushroom and 3 sauce toppings. The toppings gave it a totally different twist. Definitely worth a try and when paired with the cool and lemony virgin Mojito, it felt like a pair made in heaven.

The ‘Vol-au-Vent’ was another favourite amongst us all. It was more of love at first sight. A crunchy, flaky, cylindrical puff pastry stuffed with sautéed mushroom and topped with the right amount of cheese. The balance of this dish was perfectly maintained such that with every bite we could feel the crispiness of the base, along with the chunky mushroom and soft gooey cheese. What a wonder!!! The same was served with stuffed chicken for the non vegetarians.

When salad be like ‘Broccolicious’ one can survive on it. Broccoli florets boiled to perfection till a crunch is maintained tossed in cold creamy flavoured mayo. Just a portion of garlic bread and dinner is sorted.

We were quiet impressed with the salad hence wanted to try the ‘Waldorf Salad’. Chunks of sweet apple and walnuts tossed in creamy mayo. The apple gave the sweetness and walnuts the crunch. The balance was so perfect and before we realized the bowl was licked off clean.

‘Melting Sandwich’ was the star of the evening. Indeed beautiful to look at but with a statutory warning. One could get a cheese attack post this. A three layered sandwich with 2 distinctly different kinds of stuffing. A predominant taste of bell pepper was well accepted. Unlike other sandwiches this was rather soft and moist due to loads of cheese mounted on top.

We were also served a few drinks from the vast mocktail variants like the ‘Mango Ice Tea’, ‘Lychee Ice Tea’, etc. Nothing out of this world but definitely were a good combination to all our cheesy eats.

This was followed by ‘Hawaiian Sandwich’. A very basic cold sandwich filled with layers of bell peppers, onions, and cubed pineapple. The creamy mayonnaise along with the crunchy veggies was liked by all but it was the pineapple which imparted the right amount of sweetness to the sandwich. Quiet a large portion for a person to finish by oneself.

‘When Mac Met Cheese’ was a cold pasta salad with chunks of bell pepper and onions in a creamy tomato dressing. A very ordinary dish and could be given a pass.

20160108_205730

The ‘Chicken Seekh Wrap’ was healthy and a filling meal on its own. Strips of soft melt in the mouth chicken seekh and some fresh salad in a wrap. A bite is all you need, to order the second one, if you have the appetite. We actually enjoyed it a lot. It was a pleasant break from all the cheese and mayo we had consumed so far.

20160108_212810

We were stuffed more than normal but for foodies like us a meal however heavy must end on a sweet note. We were served ‘Chocolate Brownies’ with chocolate sauce and choco chips. Getting the right texture to the brownie is what makes it perfect, and the ones we were served was way beyond perfect.

Our meal came to a fortunate end. We were satisfied to the fullest and glad we were to discover such a café which serves great pocket friendly cuisine. Every dish we gorged here was a complete meal of its own. One could just spend an evening here with some good friends, good food, simple but lively ambience and of course, great music.

Have you ever heard of or tried The Alu Dom Doi Boda (just like how its pronounced 😉). A mix of mini fried vadas topped with an alu dum gravy and topped with dahi, sev, onions and chutney was savoured by us at the .FEST or the Internation Street Food Festival #Bhubaneswar by @odishatourismofficial @mo_bhubaneswar .Don’t forget to try the local street food when in the Temple City. #local #mobhubaneswar #streetfood #odisha #dahivada #indianfood #streetfoodvideo #videoedits #mocycle #visitBhubaneswar
Our recent trip to Bhubaneswar, the temple city was all about learning the rich culture and hertige of the city. Every corner had a temple and each of which were way older than one can imagine. One such visit was to the Ananta Vasudeva temple which had beautifully carved statues adorning the stone walls (many of which were destroyed by invadors and some by erosion). We also had a peek into their massive kitchen where on a daily basis, a large variety of Bhog, i.e prasad for the god is prepared in earthen pots which are destroyed once the food is served to the god and distributed amongst devotees. The meal is called Abhada meaning self service, was not just tasty but deliciously prepared in pure ghee. We thank @odishatourismofficial @ekamrawalks for this great experience. And @foodofmumbai for this 📸🥰❤️ #bhog #56bhog #abhada #prasadam #temple #bhubaneswar #mobhubaneswar #odisha
A meal gets even better when theres some amazingly hot & juicy Gulab Jamun. Our meal @odishahotel ended with this extremely delicious and super moist gulab jamun made of Chenna. And with the climate also playing its role perfectly in Bhubaneswar we sure dint stop at one. You can also hear @foodofmumbai going “Oh My God” over it. #gulabjamun #odisha #odishahotel #indiandessert #dessertporn
It was a night full of Celebrations and Party at The DELTA CORP’S @deltin_life 10th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS Abroad The Deltin Royale Casino, Goa. High rollers and poker lovers from across India also got a chance to meet global pro player and renowned celebrity and professional poker player Patrik Antonious. #deltin #deltinroyale #deltinjaqk #deltinlife #deltinx #10yearanniversary
A thali is a blessing for people like us who love to try varied flavours in a cuisine. Our meal @odishahotel in Bhubaneswar was truly divine. A platter of flavours varying from sweet, spicy, sour and so much more. A typical Odiya thali comprises of rice, dal, 5 types of bhaja(deep fried veggies), Khakarufulla Bhaja (varies everyday) and raita. But we dint stop there and also added the Alu Phulgobi rassa, Alu Potol Jhol, Chilika Chingudi, Mushroom Besar Rai and Chicken Alu Jhol. Our meal ended with steaming hot Chennar Gulab Jamun and Rasgulla. @odishatourismofficial @me_bhubaneswar #regionalcuisine #odiyathali #thali
Life is either an adventure or nothing at all! Day 1 at at Bhubanewar, Odisha was a trip to the the Udayagiri and Khandagiri caves whose existance dates back from the 2nd century BC. This is an archeological marvel with a number of caves ornated with carvings done during the reign of King Kharavela. A tour around the caves with a detailed explanation by our tour guide Sofia was just perfect. Theres was so much more planned for the day. So stay tuned and keep watching our stories as we take you through the #dotfest #regionalfood #worldcuphockey2018 and #muchmore. @odishatourismofficial #travelcouple #guiltlessfoodiestravel #sundaymood @me_bhubaneswar Thank you @thehungerblogger for this great picture
Sometimes it is the simplest of things that make the fondest memories. Catching up with @victorchenting , General Manager @lemeridiengoa with his lovely family and @kaavyamurthy at Divar Island was an experience to be cherished. Nothing fancy but just driving to the scenic village with paddy fields lacing the roadway, very typical of the Goan countryside. Enjoying the hot cuppa tea with some munchies and the delicious laddus was the perfect way to watch the sunset. With this, we knew we have a new set of friends who we will never let go of. Welcome to Goa Victor...To many more such trips and great meals. 📽 edit courtesy @yashsawant95 #theguiltlessfoodiestravel #lemeridien #goatravel #travelvideo #travelblogger

Read somewhere - A concoction of vegetables blended with spices and copious amounts of butter, served with toasted, butter soaked bread rolls, a wedge of lime, green chillies and finely chopped onions. OMG Pav Bhaji never sounded so royal...but for us its always comfort food. #pavbhaji #comfortfood #mumbaifood #streetfood #spicyfood #butterpavbhaji
