Every moment becomes a Memory at The JW Cafe

Being a food blogger and enthusiast we not only come across various cuisines but also have a few favourite restaurants which we frequent and never say no when there is a chance to visit it. Having talked about variety, food blogging has also given us variety of friends. Some just remain acquaintance and some become soul friends. Friends who are with each other through thick and thin.

When there was a combination of a very close friend, Sucheta Thakur from Vegetarian Bhukkad’s 3rd Blog Anniversary Celebration at our favourite property JW Marriot, Sahar it could well be called a feeling of Ecstasy.

The excitement has always been top notch every time there has been an invite from the JW Cafe. All set to experience the great evening all of us were on time and rearing to go.

Bhel Puri

Since it was a buffet, each of us had the freedom to pick and choose as per our preference. But all of us knew that JW Cafe has one of the best Chat counter and so we called for some ‘Sev Puri’ and ‘Bhel Puri’  and along with it came the ‘Welcome Drink’ of the day.

Sev Puri

Both the chats were spiced to perfection and the chutneys were fresh and flavourful.

Welcome Drink

The Welcome drink was an eye pleasing 3 layered one. The top most being mango puree followed by 2 different syrups of which one being aerated. A good stir and the drink was indeed welcoming.

The evening was getting interesting with lots of talks on varied subjects. We were ready to take a walk and pick up our starters. Though there were many but our favourites were the ‘Babycorn Fry’ and ‘Paneer Tikka’.

Baabycorn Fry & Paneer Tikka

The slender babycorn marinated in a base very similar to the koliwada masala was deep-fried and tossed with some spicy chilli powder. Crispy with a very spicy crust this Babycorn won our hearts.

The soup for the day was ‘Dal Shorba’ and ‘Cream of Mushroom Soup’ of which we preferred the latter. An extremely creamy broth with the fragrance of mushroom and basic spices. The spices were kept subtle so as not to kill the flavour of the mushrooms.

So much in offer but appetite being not too humongous we slowly started on with the main course. Our pick for the day was Indian, though there was a large variety of Thai, Sushi, Chinese, Seafood Satays with different dips, Italian and  lot more.

Seafood Satay

We settled for some ‘Vegetable Koftas’ which were spicy vegetable balls simmered in rich creamy tomato gravy’.

Dal Makhani

‘Dal Makhani’ which was a healthy mix of black lentils slow cooked in a low flame for a good number of hours, which is a special kept secret with every restaurant, along with some spices and condiments which again is a well kept secret. The result was brilliant and worth taking the pain for.

‘Mix Vegetable’ was another favourite which we never miss on any of our food trips here. The gravy is one of a kind made with a coconut milk . The rich and creamy gravy goes well with simple steam rice or jeera rice.

Mixed Vegetable Curry

‘Tava Subzi’ was another favourite and went really well with the hot ‘ Garlic Nan’ served on the table. The concept of choosing  your favourite vegetables  and seeing it being cooked  right in front of your eyes.

We also tried some ‘Thai Green Curry’ with rice which we were told was a speciality because the green curry paste is made fresh and 100% vegetarian. The dish in total was good but felt that it was too pungent and  strong with respect to the flavour of lemon grass and galangal.

We were all done and decided to skip desserts. No, not because we were full but we had gathered for a celebration. No celebration is complete without a cake. And so the cake was brought in. A pretty looking white cake and inscribe on it in green was the logo of  The Vegetarian Bhukkad. We all sang in unison and got our share of big chunks of the chocolate cake. The surprise was not over yet when Chef Roberto Zorzoli walked in with his specialty, ‘The Tiramisu’. We ended our meal on a divine note.

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.
