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.

It’s all about finding the calm at Chaos Control Cafe.

How often do we come across a place which specialises in just 4 items ? Yes you heard it absolutely right 4 items are all they have but this tiny joint in the corner of a hustling and bustling road is quiet an eye catcher when it comes to its name, decor, location and simplicity.

We had a chance to visit the Chaos Control Cafe a few days back and came home with the satisfaction of not being over stuffed like we usually are but of great memories which were part of our growing up years.

We will begin by talking of the name ‘Chaos Control Cafe’. Why so? Well one must visit the place to witness the traffic at the junction. It is indeed a maddening mayhem of honking cars and crazy Chaos. Hence the name.

The decor of the case and of the pavement on which the store sits is very interesting. Located in corner of the road so the cafe is rounded. The walls have graffiti of Mario Miranda.. There is a post outside on the footpath which has the cafes name. The owners have also take the initiative to make big cemented tubs with plants. This not only beautifies the otherwise dull footpath to an attractive one. Coming to furniture’s, all of them can be removed and shifted to any place. Customised with board games as the table top one cant get bored.

Malai & Sugar Toast

 

Coming to the food which we actually came for. This restaurants serves only 4 components like we mentioned earlier.

Chocolate Toast

We started with the ‘Toast from Varanasi’ and the most talked about one being the ‘Malai Toast’. A thick layer of malai on a crispy toasted bread and sprinkled with sugar = Bliss in the 1st order. The bread was not the ones we get in packets across Mumbai but a customized special one which is thicker and smaller than the usual. This was not the only one we tried. We also had the Chocolate sandwich which again was the bread smothered with thick chocolate sauce. Another favorite was the ‘Jeeravan Masala Toast’. A mix of various dry roasted masala with a prominent taste of jeera topped in a crisp butter toast. As the butter melts and mixes with the masala gives a beautiful taste and flavour along with the aroma. The next was ‘Pudina Chutney’ topping. Fresh and flavourful with the right hit of spice. They had a wide variety almost 15+ and all of which were priced at just 25/- a plate. Crazy but totally true.

Kulhad Chai

Next we were ready to try the ‘Kulhad chai from Kolkata’. Frothy hot steaming simple tea with a few strands of kesar which adds to the flavour of the otherwise simple everyday chai. By simple everyday chai we mean a good one which is neither too milky or watery but just the right consistency. They also had green tea, coffee but we stuck to the authentic Kulhad vali chai.

Shivtaran Sherbet

Next we were ready to try few from the expansive list of ‘Sherbet from Shivtaran Matunga’. We had the Rajbhog and Ganga Jamuna..All of these tasted better than each other. It was a riot as we tasted one drink after the other both water and milk based.

Ice Paan

What we witnessed next was a visual treat as the pan Walla section got busy making a ‘Meetha Litchi Paan’ and the twin ‘Magai Paan’. As it looked so it tasted. Amalgamation of sweet masalas, suparis, chutneys. No comparison to the best of our knowledge with any shop across Mumbai. Quiet large in size but it would be totally worth it only if one haves it one pop.

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.
