Cafe Mojo, Mumbai – #Review

I was invited to Cafe Mojo, for being a part of the exclusive dinner for bloggers sometime back.

I went in to dine with my brother at this place just before his birthday. The decor of this place was an absolute delight with bloggers across the city at the same place during the same time. It is rare to meet everyone with expertise in the field at the same place unless it’s a blogger’s table ofcourse.

The cafe crowd was quite enthusiastic which is exactly what this bistro is. The original outpost is in Panjim, Goa, and another one has recently opened up in Mangalore (native place). Café Mojo is themed like a traditional English pub with its dark wooden interiors, cosy ambience.

They have an interesting system of E-beers where you can top-up your drinks at your own table. It is like a card which you top-up initially and it gets swiped as you consume your food and drinks. It is an unusual concept at a bar but it works. Infact Café Mojo is India’s first E Beer pub with distinctive e-Brew self-serve system has caught attention nationally.

To munch take advantage of their superb food menu which features not only great appetizers but also delicious mains and desserts. Begin with chicken n peppers, Mexican pasta salad, pesto-BBQ mushrooms.

Chocco-connection! #Review

Chocolate doesn’t have to be single origin to float my boat. Chocolate which pushes any of my numerous buttons can come in many different guises.

Chocco-Connection is the perfect destination for fine handcrafted assorted chocolate lovers. Their fine range of chocolates provides a variety of flavours and categories for people looking for lip-smacking chocolates for all occasions and even when there is simply a craving for chocolates.

Chocco-Connection started off with the idea of sharing happiness. And what better way to celebrate than with chocolates. Looking at the quality of handmade or homemade chocolates being produced and the pricing being offered, they felt the need to manufacture fine handcrafted chocolates at a pricing that is favourable to the masses and quality that appeals to the classes. From children to adults to corporates they wanted to create something different, something purely handcrafted and yet available at a reasonable price. Also giving it a personalised touch that doesn’t portray it as an out of the reach product and yet appeals as something created at home with love. Launched just an year ago, they have come a long way where they have not only served retail clients for various festivals and occasions, but have also catered major Four & Five Star Hotels for corporate gifting and have also featured at a number of food festivals across Delhi.

Flavours by Chocco-Connection:

The honey and almond works on a completely different scale. The crunch of the almonds along with the deep sweetness of the honey against the already fairly sweet chocolate will also give you a buzz, but in a different style. This is a type of chocolate that should have absolutely huge appeal to a much wider audience than traditional plain one would be expected to have. There’s a degree of hit the palette oozing wonderful flavours once in your mouth, but with the fine texture that makes it work in this other dimension. It may not be a chocolate that I could find myself consuming more than four or five squares a day, but for that instant hit of sweet chocolaty flavour it certainly does the job like none other. Would recommend this if your not a sweet-tooth person but still want to indulge in some favourful ones from cappucino to the caramalised one.ChoccoFilling2

I’ve tried more than my fair share of chocolate truffle selection boxes but the beautiful thing about chocco-connection chocolate truffles is that they come in all sorts of flavours. You can also get some fabulous nutty heaven or butterscotch crunch truffles that would definitely leave you craving for some more. This chocolate is very sweet and not especially chocolaty. It’s dark brown color with just the right amount of cocoa solids in it. One thing I notice about this chocolate is that the time between when you put a piece of it in your mouth and the time you can actually taste the chocolate is not much longer than with many other chocolates. A perfect thumbs up!ChoccoTruffle2

CHOCo3

The main aim of Chocco-Connection is to carry forward their expertise in handcrafted chocolate making, tradition of quality and customer oriented approach that they have been endeavoring to master since the start of their brand with ever lasting enthusiasm in providing customers with moments of delight.

Their mission is to create finest and freshest chocolates made on premises at each location using the best available ingredients with a responsibility to offer customers a personal, unique chocolate experience each and every time they taste their fine chocolates, call on the phone or tap into the website.

I am on my first box of the Chocolate mix with truffles, centre filling and nuty heaven and so far I have enjoyed it. I really like chocolate and I find myself craving it less with this. I will definitely be ordering more when this box is empty 😀

Chocco-Connection caters to all occasions, events and festivals be it weddings, birthdays, baby showers, Diwali, Christmas, corporate events and gifting etc.

Garlic Bread with cheese topping!

Garlic bread seems to be the perfect side dish for SO many recipes. It goes great with pastas, dips, gravies even salads! You can find some decent garlic bread pre-made at the restaurant you decide to dine at a time and trust me, I’ve had my fair share of the stuff. However, nothing tastes better than homemade garlic bread! Even better? Homemade CHEESY garlic bread.

F!@# The Name Review!

This one should be listed as one of the “Hidden Gems” on the busy link road in Malad West. Famous for it’s 90’s like ambience and serving mostly continental and chinese cuisine. It is a pretty cool place with a big screen. They serve delicious mouth watering delicacies especially in the non-veg starters that we tried.

Fish & Chips!

On a sprawling evening we decided to try out the food joint Score which is located in Malad (West) Mumbai. A decent place for food,beverages and sport lovers. They play some really good music from the 80’s and 90’s too with visual appearance of the vidoe on large screen. They also have games like pool, dart, table tennis on a digital screen with gestures and a small place for basketball at one end. Every table has a small screen put up for match lovers and a good ambience overall as well.

After deciding for quite sometime we ordered few starters, beverages, a pizza with chicken topping along with FISH & CHIPS!

The pizza was decent umm not that great i would suggest. Even after ordering a thin crust it wasn’t that appetizing or made me want some more. It was attractively presented, with new layers to the dishes accompanied with their delicately acidic spike and few sauces at the side. The starter with grilled chicken was better than the pizza with the rich flavours just melting in the mouth subtle yet a blob of mixed authentic taste right at the center of it.

Now the Fish & Chips was a big hit according to me.All fish can be served grilled too, making this potentially the healthiest of the posh fast food options clamouring for a piece of our waistlines at the moment while tasting it back there. A short but well-chosen drink would go really well with it i suggest.

Using the sauce instead of gravy for the chips was a good choice we did. The chips were well cooked and crispy. It was medium sized cut fries and the sauce a mix of mayonnaise and vegetable grated was flavourful and complimented the fish which made it delicious to eat.

The fish I thought would have come in a smaller portion but I was wrong. Was given 2 times more than what I imagined. With 2 large pieces on the platter. The outer layer of the fish was fried till golden colored and it was easy to cut with the cutlery provided. Was tender on the inside and the fish was very fresh. Yes, it was delicate for me to even slice it and pop it in my mouth to eat it.

Overall, excellent customer service and even though it was a little pricy, I think I’ll come back here again when I’m around the area. Do stop by here if you got a chance 🙂

This Easter indulge your palate in “Nordic Kandie Magic”! (Review)

“It is believed by Alchemists that edible gold is one of the elixirs of life”

A bright blue electric box of exquisite and authentic marzepans was delivered to me by Nordic Kandie Magic, an European luxury candy brand with legacy from a beautiful country in Scandinavia called Estonia that also happens to be the birthplace of marzepan.

The colourful Kandies came in a royal packaging with a golden ribbon wrapped around the blue box that contained these sweet gourmet treats. Totally loved the packaging style that adds a touch on uniqueness.

The driving force behind this luxurious marzepan brand with legacy from Europe are Thea & Thomas.

Thea happens to hail from Estonia and holds a masters degree in special education & counselling but has been involved in the family’s food & beverage business across Scandinavia. Her husband Thomas has a noteworthy part in setting up business for Nordic Kandie in India.

Nordic Kandie’s original European marzepan embraces the finest Iranian Mamra almonds & organic sugar. These mamra almonds are exclusive from Iran and contribute to a mere 4-5% of the world almond production. It is also imperative to know that Nordic Kandie select almonds for making the marzepan the way grapes are chosen for creating the finest wine.

I couldn’t resist tasting the fruity flavours like strawberry, green apple, orange, blackcurrant, along with chocolate & cinnamon covered with Belgian chocolate and wrapped with pure edible gold and silver being TUV certified. Among the fruity flavourful ones the green apple and black currant made me drool, while the cinnamon one was a unique flavour for a gourmet marzepan. Very interesting thought process involved in it, must say.
