We the Guiltless Foodies are a gourmand couples who love our food and travel to any accessible corner to Meet… Greet… and of course Eat.  We work together and prefer going to invites only where both of us are invited and try and skip the ones which allow just the one of us. This is probably our love for each other or maybe that way we cover variety, and here, by variety we mean one of us being a vegetarian and the other half a hard core meat lover.  So when this invite was extended to us by @Karan, he very clearly told us it is just for 1 and that 1 has to be me as it’s a Womens Day Special Dinner organized by @Asian Street Kitchen. Well I was excited and so was my partner as this was a special treat for me on this special day and so came the nod..Jaa Nisha..Kha le jee bhar ke!!!

“Basil Mojito & Tangy Guava”

Too filmy,  but coming back to Asian Street Kitchen, which is a small but pretty looking restaurant overlooking the busy street of Chowpatty. As I walked in I was welcomed by few of my favourite foodies and the owner. Without wasting any time we started our Gastronomic evening .

‘Basil Mojito’ or also known as the most refreshing drink ever invented. This was rightly spiked with the fresh taste of basil.

‘Tangy Guava’ lived up to its name. Pretty looking but a little too sour to suit my taste hence I stuck to the Basil Mojito.
Along with the drinks we were all set and ready to explore what Pan Asian & vegetarian food ASK had in offer for us.  Not difficult but rare to come across combination in the Mumbai food circuit.

Soothing is exactly what comes to one’s mind when we talk of ‘Tom Kha Soup’. Rich and distinct in flavor. Each and every ingredient that went into preparing this beauty was intact and dint loose its property even after cooking. The fragrance of the herbs such as kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, and galangal gave the soup a sharp earthy and somewhat citrusy flavor. A perfect  start to the meal.

“Tom Kha Soup”

Pan Asian cuisine is pretty well accepted with the Indians, reason being its variety of appetizers.  Next we were served an array of appetizers.

As fresh as it looked this ‘Som Tam Salad’ emitted the same freshness with every bite. A healthy and colourful mix of strands or raw papaya tossed in some sweet chilli oil and topped with veggies and crushed peanuts. Healthy it definitely was but on a personal level I stopped at just a few forkfuls. Reason – there was loads more to come.

“Som Tam Salad”

No Asian meal is complete without dumplings so next came in the ‘Three Mushroom Dumpling’. Not really a mushroom fan, but this was way par excellence. Soft and moist in texture stuffed with mildly spiced mushrooms.
.
Impressed with the dumplings we were all set to try the ‘Steamy Garlic Wontons’. Stuffed with some shredded vegetables but in total the vegetables were side lined and what was distinct was the garlic and chilies in which this soft steamed wontons were tossed in. Though it wasn’t liked by all on the table but being a garlic fan I loved and devoured it all.

“Kung Pao Potatoes”

Slowly getting a little full but not stooping as we were informed that this is not even 25% of what is in store for us that evening.

Next up was the ‘Kung Pao Potatoes’. A little confusion regarding the authenticity of this particular prep, if it is Chinese, Thai but at large without argument is pan Asian in nature.  Thin sliced potatoes fried to perfection and tossed with some amazing sauce concoction. Crunchy on the outside and soft from the inside was served alongside with fried glass noodles. A dish which can easily be called for as main course. There was something very tempting about the crispy glass noodle. We all loved it and dint quiet leave even a strand back.

“Sizzling Paneer”

Next appetizer presented was the ‘Sizzling Paneer’ which came in a garlic flavoured green sauce. Spiced to perfection with one of the mot moist and juicy paneer ever. We dint wait too much as we wanted to gorge on this dish when it was still in its sizzling stage.

After trying these scrumptious appetizers, we were ready to go on to the main course. Being full was not the criteria but experiencing what ASK had in offer for us was more stimulating.

We started with the ‘Penang Laksa’ or a coconut cream based noodle soup with veggies is one complete health package for the weight conscious class. Very balanced but with a striking taste of ginger. This was very similar to the Burmese Khowsuey. Brilliant is the word!!!

“Nasi Goreng”

Next arrived the ‘Nasi Goreng’ a specialty from Indonesia. The vegetarian version that we were served was a great looking one with a heap of spiced rice topped with some minced tofu. Served alongside of the rice was vegetable skewers doused in peanut sauce and some rice crackers. Overall a very good looking dish for a picture but lacked taste. A little effort can make this dish one of the top sellers, of course after the Penang Laksa.

We were also served some ‘Soba Stir Fry Noodle’ which I gave a convenient miss I I definitely dint want to miss the dessert.

“Red Velvet Mandarin Cheesecake”

So in came the best part of any meal – the DESSERTS

First came the ‘Red Velvet Mandarin Cheesecake’. Who doesn’t like a cheese cake and if it is red velvet its double bonanza. But it wasn’t so simple. It was the Oh so famous red velvet cheese cake topped with orange mandarin sauce. The sauce is what that made this dish unique. Tangy in taste complimented the otherwise sugary sweet red velvet cheese cake. The punch of the sourness is what took this dessert to an extreme new level altogether.

‘Darsan with vanilla ice cream’ was the end of our meal. Crispy fried to perfection maintaining a beautiful golden colour drizzled with honey and served with vanilla ice cream. Nothing can actually go wrong with this dish ever, and if it does the restaurant must think of alternate employment options.

“Darsan”

So with the end of our happy meal all of us, of which most were non vegetarians, had a happy smile on their face. A smile of contentment. An evening well spent with fellow women food bloggers on the occasion of Women’s Day was one evening to remember full of fun, laughter, good food and most importantly great memories to cherish for a life time.

-
And for us, 1000 is not just a number. Behind this number is our 2+ years of memories that we have kept alive and mouthwatering through @Instagram and other Social Media. In this journey we have come across different people, some of who have become more of a family now. We have shared ups and downs and most importantly celebrated everything together. -
Though not up to the mark, our posts/ pictures have won us appreciations and many a times, we are sure people have wondered how these clicks happen. Trust us. Though we own a DSLR camera, most of our #foodgasmic 😉 pictures are shot from the Camera on the Instagram app itself. Essentially all you need is good lighting and some focus, we mean real focus with all that food around 😉 like this picture here of the 'Prawn Bacon Rolls & Grilled Chestnuts' served at @swinggoa -
1000 would've been a distant dream without the Love and Support that you ALL have been giving us. Thank you. Each and every one of you. ❤❤
