Was passing by Dadar and decided to do a pick up dinner.
They have a pretty exhaustive menu for a restaurant their size.

I felt like having pasta for dinner. The person across the counter suggested A la tikka pasta since I wanted something spicy. I agreed – A la tikka – what could that taste like?, I wondered. Hubby ordered a Non-veg club sandwich. Our parcel was ready in 20 mins. and we went home.
Dinner time – The A la tikka pasta was accompanied by 2 herbed breads. What can I say to the taste but – interesting, very interesting. Its a very interesting fusion of an international dish with an absolute Indian flavour. And spicy it was – just the right amount. The pasta has a good amount of paneer and cheese. The herbed breads were good, but they were ‘herbed’ a bit too strongly. Would have been a perfect accompaniment to the pasta if the herbs were sprinkled in lesser quantity. Its a heavy and wholesome meal. At Rs. 225, its absolutely VFM. Would I order it again – yes but would ideally like to try their other dishes first.

The Non-veg club sandwich. Price Rs. 200.

Hubby’s instant reaction on opening the box – its not grilled! Well, we assumed they would grill it or would have asked otherwise what we wanted. So, that was a disappointment. As the wafers are just dunked into the side of the box, which is not air-tight, they were completely wilted and soggy : (
Plus point to this sandwich was the size – the portion size was good. Look below for a picture of a single half of the sandwich.

The taste of the club sandwich was very average. Grilled would have tasted better (even their menu says so). The coleslaw was decent.
I will definitely try this place out for other options.
Went to Leo’s recently in the evening with hubby for a quick bite.
Ordered the Chicken quiche, Veg. croissant and a cappuccino.
Looked really good but was very average on taste. Priced at Rs. 55. Will not order it again.
The croissant has a spinach and cottage cheese stuffing. Nice. Priced at Rs. 50.

Its a tall mug of coffee but not very high on taste. Passable at Rs. 70.
Below is the pic of the Chutney n cheese sandwich I really like. Priced at Rs. 70.

chicken panini sandwich
I made this for my hubby this morning, for breakfast. It was a wholesome morning meal. The panini was atleast 7″ long and he had it all!

I have always loved this place. Its a pure vegetarian restaurant and it serves amazingly delicious food. Its been a long time since I eaten there. Knowing my liking for this joint, my hubby got me my dinner from there last week.
Dinner consisted of 2 sandwiches – Pickled aubergine and oven roasted vegetables in Mediterranean spice bread and Saute spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese in warm brioche bread. Both are priced at Rs. 205 each + taxes.

Don’t they look appetizing? Any one sandwich is sufficient for dinner. Add a coffee and you are completely satiated. I loved the first sandwich – the aubergine one. Its perfect. I have eaten many-a-similar sandwiches like it but what sets this apart is that it has thinly sliced apples too. This gives the sandwich a very interesting taste. This is a must-have sandwich.
The latter one, the spinach is average. It too has the apple slices but I’ve eaten better spinach sandwiches elsewhere. This sandwich is served in 4 portions (my pic has half the sandwich).
