Desi Deli brunch with Maria Goretti

21 Feb

I love a good brunch. Who doesn’t? The playful dance between breakfast and lunch, sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week and allows you to lull around in bed for hours after waking and still get all your favourite breakfast foods. It’s also a great reward to a good workout. Nothing like working up a good sweat and then eating some good food.

Unwraping Christmas feasts in Mumbai

21 Dec

Christmas menu at JW Marriott Juhu

It’s Christmas time. Will it be mistletoe, wine and the same meal you have every year? Before you drive home for Christmas try one of my favourite restaurants for their special Christmas spread.

Gaylord, Churchgate, Mumbai
This year, Gaylord’s Christmas menu holds the irresistible beer batter prawns. Perfectly fried to a golden yellow, the crispy casing holds the freshest jumbo prawns alongside buttered peas and carrots. Other dishes on the menu include Chicken Marina, Baked Aubergines, Dum Gosht Biryani, Shakarkandi Kebab, etc. I absolutely loved the Makhmali Kumbh (tandoori mushrooms stuffed with goat cheese). My favourite experience here is to enjoy a sizzler in the alfresco area. Not only does the theatre of it turn heads and stop conversation, but it’s an immediate winter warmer like no other type of dish.
