No matter what you do, You have to have a big vision and take very small steps to get there. You have to be humble as you execute, but visionary and gigantic in terms of your aspiration. Similarly in the food industry it’s not about grand innovations, it’s about a lot of little innovations; every day, every week, every month, making something a little bit different and better.
Similarly our experience at Tiffin Box Etc was one with some innovative surprises with their twists and tweaks to our day to day grub. Here is how it was.
Planned commercial complex or Bandra Kurla Complex is a house to various commercial centres. It is such centres that give birth to a wide range of restaurants. One such frequented place is Tiffin Box etc. Quiet easy to locate and reach during the day but evening travel via public transport could be a pain. So our recommendation is to either visit during the day or have your own means of transport.
A large and brightly lit restaurant, despite our visit being late evening over dinner looked very welcoming and cheerful. The interiors were simple yet classy. Each table had a series of crosswords and puzzles printed on the paper mat which kept us busy till the food arrived.
Well informed staff with proper knowledge about the food being available. Though there is always room for little improvement but their courteous and friendly behaviour made up for it. A list of recommendations rolled out as soon as we asked them to suggest. When a restaurants has such staff the experience is twofold worthy.
Coming to the most important part of ordering our grub for the evening. We were mentally prepared as to the dishes we definitely wanted to try. This was basis the recommendation of the staff and fellow foodies. One definitely is bound to get confused when there is not just a range of dishes but also a range in the cuisines one can choose from. Tiffin Box etc. serves authentic food of various states. From Delhi dishes like Baingan Bharta with Litti Chokha, Dabba Ghost. From Kolkata they have Dhokar Dalna, Macher Jhol. Mumbai speciality was the Bhareli Vangi and Sindhi Kadhi and ALu Tuk from the land of Gujarat and Sindh. One is basically spoilt with choice. They also have the Tiffin Box concept where one gets a full set packed meal as per ones cuisine preference. We could go on about the variety but we will talk about our personal favourites of the evening.
Mirchi wale alu, papad tacos, microgreen is a very simple dish for the complicated and long name it has. Crisp Masala Papad shaped like tiny tacos stuffed with spicy mashed potatoes and topped with attractive micro greens. This Indianized version was indeed a favourite.
Fusion food at its best. Our next favourite was the Ricotta cheese Vada pav slider. Crisp potato sandwiched in mini sliders. It’s the Ricotta cheese that took this dish notches higher in the leader board.
With nitrogen infused food being the talk of the town Tiffin Box etc. didn’t lag behind. The Sev Puri, curd spheres was a gastronomical delight for chat lovers. The curd burst in the mouth with utmost creaminess and sourness. Perfect is just an understatement.
If a place boast of serving one of the best Biryani they ought to be really out of the box . The Chooze Briyani and the
Subz masala Briyani are one of the best we have had in recent times. Thin, long grained, aromatic and flavourful rice were few of the adjectives we can use to describe the Briyani.
A highly recommended and much talked about dessert was the Gulab Jamun set cheese cake. Over hyped and not as good as how we expected. Though it looked very nice but completely lacked taste.
On the other hand the Angoori rasmalai with rose caviar was as good to taste as it looked. Food experimentation to the next level. One has to eat it to experience this molecular gastronomy wonder
Tiffin Box etc. serves multi cuisines at affordable prices. They have a wide variety to please every choice and every mood. Having gone in a big group one can also opt for the lunch buffet which is priced at a very reasonable rate. The meal for two costs approximately Rs 800/- which gives you a tour of the best of cuisines under one roof.
With such places around a commercial area is a blessing. In BKC where we otherwise can find only expensive fine dine restaurants Tiffin Box etc. is a one stop solution to take care of any cuisine or craving.
