We so Happy… at Me So Happi !

“Do more of what makes you Happy; Eat more of what makes you smile”

As the caption rightly reads, we the Guiltless Foodies enjoy eating as much as we do drinking and both give us immense pleasure and a happy feel. So when we were invited to FBAI’s Blogger’s table to Me So Happi we sure were extremely happy. Having heard of the place for quiet some time now we were all set to test and taste what the new outlet at BKC had in offer.

As we entered the place, it quiet dint feel like an upscale lounge or restaurant.  Classy but in its own simple down to earth way. There seemed to be no uniformity in the décor but it was very welcoming and we went to our relax mode.

Being the Valentine week we had the privilege to taste the specials planned for the week long love celebrations.

Champagne is always connected to celebrations and what more than the celebration of Love. so came the 1st drink ‘On the Deck’. A mix of champagne, lemon juice, green apple syrup and mandarin. Not very heavy or strong but refreshingly mild and flavourful.

The 1st appetizers to arrive were the ‘Papad Trioka’. Just like the name suggests this was a papad platter with 3 kinds of papads alongside with 3 dips. The crispy papad and the dip and the way it was served in the tea glass was the favorite of the evening. Though not a very extravagant dish but won our hears due to its simplicity.

Next up from the cocktails menu was the ‘From the other Side’. A very presentable looking drink and one of its kinds came a cocktail inside the half cut and scooped out watermelon. This was a vodka based cocktail with chunks of melon, orange juice, mint leaves, sweet & sour mix. Wonder why it was served in watermelon if it dint have anything to do with it. But as far as it looked innovative we dint mind.

As we were enjoying the papads came in the soup. Not too fond of cold soup we were a little apprehensive to try the same but we did go ahead and are  glad we did. The ‘Crab Vichyssoise Soup’ was a dill flavoured cold crab soup. Creamy and fine textured and each spoonful was a sheer delight. This is a must have for all, especially during the Mumbai summers. Truly refreshing.

Salads are a very important part of any meal and when it’s a healthy mix of all interesting things then it’s a pleasure to have the same. We were served the ‘Kale, Grape Fruit & Pine Nut Salad’ which came along with Feta, Raw Mango and Crispy Lavash. The freshness of the kale leaves along with the sourness of the grape fruit was a great combination indeed.

A meal could be called complete with such a bowl of salad and a cup of the cold soup, but we definitely dint want to miss out the other delicacies planned for us.

Then walked in these pretty looking shot glasses filled with beetroot yogurt and on them sat these small filo parcels which looked like mini samosas. The ‘Greek Spanakopita’ was stuffed to the brim with spiced spinach, pine nuts and feta. What an appetizer!!! is what we all said in unison. The filo was crispy and stuffing was smooth and soft and one could easily keep popping in one after the other. The beetroot dip dint play its part too well other than just beautifying the dish.

For the non vegetarians we were served the ‘Seafood Pot – Sticker’. More like steamed wantons these were stuffed with chive flavoured mix seafood. This came with a tangy dipping broth. Not one of the best and it could well be given a pass.

Done with the 3S – Soup, Salad and Starters we were ready for the main course.

The vegetarians were served the ‘Ravioli Quattro Formaggi’. Wild mushrooms, roasted pepper succotash, pecan and sage are what this dish was all about. Though the filling was almost nice and pleasant but the dish in total dint quiet please the vegetarians. Maybe a little sauce here and there to toss the ravioli could have been better accepted.

The non vegetarians were served the ‘Salmon Stuffed with Prawns’ .This was one dish to be talked about. The salmon had Crunchy layer to it due to the pista crumbs sprinkled generously on it. This was stuffed with well marinated tender and juicy prawns. All this sat on a bed of zucchini agilio olio tossed in butter sauce. As we dug into this dish each layer had a distinct taste to it and each of which was widely different in taste from one another. All we could say was Divided by taste but United as a dish…King of good times!!!

By the end of the meal we were quiet full.  The service was too slow and we were getting a little impatient but the non vegetarians were pacified with the Salmon Stuffed with Prawns. But the vegetarians were also taken to peace with the desserts.

First came the ‘Cinnamon Chocolate Cigars’. An interesting and mysterious looking dessert. Inside a dome of spun sugar sat these brandy snapped cigars filled with cinnamon chocolate mousse. By the time we finished clicking this beauty and were ready to eat some, it had vanished. At the speed at which it disappeared this cigar definitely dint look injurious to health.

Keeping the Valentine’s Day spirit the next dessert was a Raspberry Mascarpone Mousse with Milk Chocolate Ganache. A pretty red coloured raspberry mousse cylinder topped with milk chocolate ganache. Explanations could be put to rest and words can be minimum to explain a great dessert.

Quiet happy with the way the evening went but service sure needs to be improved on. When one gets the taste of great food, waiting for it to arrive at a constant pace is a punishment. But all well that ends well and the desserts were a great end to the meal. It was not just a ME SO HAPPI moment but it was WE SO HAPPY!!!

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 👅
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 👍
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.
