Soam

Rest : Soam
Meal : Supper
Loc : Babulnath
Soam is an ethnic food joint which serves as the only competition for the hugely popular Swati, while Soam is popular it does not have the gargantuan lines and constant waiting that is a common feature of Swati. This is not a mark against Soam in anyway though they compete fairly well and do a decent job while they are it.


The place is comfortable and ambiance is fairly upmarket and modern. The menu offers many options identical to Swati (Golas, Sugarcane juice, Panki) while at the same time it has different items and also offers its own take on Gujarati & Maharashtrian cuisine. Similar yet different would be an apt explanation.

We started with a Masala chaas which was excellent, and we had to go on and get another one.

Diet Pepsi for me.

Being our first visit together (i have been here long ago) we didn't try anything too out there and stuck to what we know. The regualr rice panki with green chutney, was excellent, just as good if not better than its Swati counterpart. They have many options on the panki front too.

The masala rice with yoghurt kadi was excellent. The rice seemed to have a real home made touch, slightly on the spicy side it worked real well with the kadi.

Overall,the whole experience was fairly positive, the place is small but well patronized. Shall return and be more experimental soon.
