The Saltwater Grill

Rest : Saltwater Grill
Meal : Dinner
Date : 29/4/2006
Location : Chowpatty, Bombay
Company : PK

Experience - We got there a bit early and fortunately it wasnt as busy then so we were seated right away. the place has a fantastic ambience and is a great place to stay and hang out. A bottle of wine, old friends, memories. The place is highly recommended even though the food was inconsistent. I would def go there again if only for a bottle of wine.

Drinks - Water. They werent serving alchohol for some excise protest. Goddamn revolutions ruined this world and my dinner.

Food : Hmm, this was a mix bag. We started with a mushroom soup and broccoli and irish cheddar. Mushroom was great but Broccoli (vilest of reeds) was quite shameful. We went for a greek salad with feta cheese and grilled veggies with Ricotta. The greek salad was ok, the feta fresh but the grilled veggies were absolutely horrible and bland and i only got a dollop of ricotta. Not enough to create some taste. Also, the appetite not being what it used to be we got one main course and split it which was Spagetti in a Pomodoro sauce and it was absolutely incredible. Excellent taste (almost like Little Italy) very good. The dessert was a chocolate monstrosity which was recommended and to be ordered 25 mins before actually eating it. Unfortunately i think they could have done with about 50 mins coz it tasted like bournvita. Absolutely useless. I mean i would have been better rubbing it all over my body and rolling in the mud rather than eating it.

Grand Cafe at the Hyatt

Rest : Grand Cafe at Hyatt Grand
Meal : Evening Snack
Date : 19/4/2006
Location :Grand Hyatt, Kalina, Bombay
Company : PK

Experience - Reasonably crowded for 6pm but not too bad. All kinds of people businessmen, tourists, freaks, marriage meetings. No Valet, how disgusting. What kind of a hotel chain opens up without a bloody valet. I am supposed to park my OWN car?

Drinks - Coffee, Water

Food : Probably the greatest club sandwich in the history of the world (for what i paid for it, it better have been) Absolutely awesome, had a hint of balsamic vinegar which made it even more amazing because its a taste not many Indians are used to. But it was def a top drawer sandwich. The fries it came with were on the other hand quite tasteless and i wasnt impressed. The coffee as well, nothing great.

Piccadelhi - A Delhi Meal

Rest :Piccadelhi
Meal : Early Lunch
Date : 17/4/2006
Location :Connaught Place, New Delhi.
Company : Siddhartha

Experience - Not very crowded, but it was only around 12 on Sunday morning. After looking for something interesting we gave up after counting 3 McDonalds and 2 Pizza Hut within 1 mile round. Anyway, the place has a london theme going, which is interesting ambience wise.
Order - Manchow Soup, Mezze Platter, Chili Garlic Noodles

Drinks - Coke,Bottled Water

Food :The food was terrible. The mezze platter had some salad, hummus and baba ganoush. All of it tasted quite horrible. Nothing seemed authentic, the falafal, the less said the better. The Manchow soup was hot and spicy but not interesting at all. The Chili garlic noodles were a lot of chili, plenty garlic, no taste.
