Jalpaan – Italian Menu, Indian at heart

Masala Mafia

I have been hearing about Jalpaan since a long time. I had visited it a couple of years back for a friend’s treat and my memory is hazy on that experience. I just remember that I came out with an “above average” feeling then. I intended to give it a test again recently.

Cafe Churchill, Colaba, Mumbai

Chicken Cordon Bleu

It is a smallish place with about 5-6 tables. It has a very casual atmosphere and a cozy setting, bordering on cramped. It was alright though. We looked at our options while waiting for the waiter, which took some time as there was apparently only one waiter working at the time and all the tables were full.

The food, of course, is the only reason to go here. I just ordered two dishes, seeing as I was the only one eating. The all-time favourite – Biryani Rice and Chicken Tikka.

The Mairaj Restaurant – A tale of woeful service

Some times you pay for food, at other times – service. Most of the time, you expect a decent combination of both. That is the expectation I had when I walked in The Mairaj Restaurant, in Tilaknagar area in Bangalore.

Donuts at Krispy Kreme

Box of Assorted Donuts

That was until I received an invite to a blogger’s meet at Krispy Kreme one evening. Honestly, I was looking forward more to the meetup than the donuts. I read the reviews and I knew that the donuts had to taste better than what you get at those small bakeries, but I was not that interested.
