I’ve always been fond of the Asian cuisine varieties. There’s so much you can bring to the table using a mix of hundreds of ingredients and spices to tickle your taste buds. And then there is my love for sushi. Hence when I visited Yazu – Pan Asian Supper Club, I knew I was in for a good experience.

Location and proximity to station – Situated besides the best landmark in Andheri west i.e Infinity Mall, Yazu has space for more than 100 guests at one time. You can reach here via the DN Nagar metro station within 10 minutes, 15-20 minutes each to Jogeshwari or Andheri station.

Seating and Ambiance – There’s comfortable seating along with seating allocated at the bar and a separate area with high table for those who want to enjoy the live screenings. There is absolutely no problem whatsoever in terms of space congestion.

 

Food and Drinks – Here’s what we tried;

  1. Bhut Jolakia Mule – I am a whiskey cocktail person. But something about this place made me try different options. The staff suggested Bhut Jolakia Mule. For those who don’t know, Bhut Jolakia is the spiciest chilly all over the world found within India. They have made a paste out of it and added vodka along with ginger and lemon. This drink gives the perfect hit and taste. It is spicy and lovely. Highly recommended that you try it out.

  1. Yazu special Gin and Tonic – I also am fond of the classic gin served with tonic water. It really has an amazing taste. Here too they have served with cinnamon and the end result is so good. There is a nice aroma coming out of the glass and it is amazing. Please do try it out.

  1. Prawn Tempura with creamy salmon – Perhaps one of the most surprising moments of my dinner here was this sushi. I am not a prawns fan but on being suggested did try it. Along with prawns and salmon, there was avocado, cucumber and Togarashi sauce which is almost like the sriracha mayo sauce. This was fantastic and I highly recommend you to try it.

  1. Yazu Signature Roll – The Yazu signature roll is a smoked salmon special. I love salmon sushi and hence I liked it a lot. It tastes really nice and is not spicy at all.

  1. Red Tuna Nigiri – The classic Nigiri is a type of sushi that has the raw meat or fish which is placed on top of pressed vinegared rice. I had this with a pinch of wasabi and I must say it was good. I usually prefer salmon nigiri but red tuna did surprise me.

  1. Spicy Lamb – Again, the suggestion given by Yazu’s staff is bang on target. This one is a chef’s signature dish where the meat is cooked very well. They’ve made it spicy and I must say it is the good kind of spicy where you cannot stop eating until it’s over. Do try it out if lamb is your favorite.

  1. Yazu signature green curry fried rice – This one is your basic green Thai curry along with their basic version of fried rice. These are served with 4 prawn crackers for company and topped along with sunny side up fried egg. I love green curry and hence this mains is amazing. The rice tastes well and so does the meat. Please do try this out.

  1. Japanese Cheesecake – I love matcha. I cannot deny it. Hence when I saw the cheesecake here along with matcha ice cream, I had to try it. They have added their baked cheesecake along with matcha green tea ice cream. I loved the texture and the consistency in taste. It’s really good.

To conclude, there’s good food being served here and also an amazing variety of drinks. A special thanks to their staff, especially “Kreo” and “Piloto”. They made us feel at home and were always there to help us make the right decisions and ensure we had a good meal. People as such make your dinner a memorable experience. Do check this place out. They’re worth it.

For those who love Tea and swear by it are very happy as there are many outlets opening up with tea as their primary USP. MusTea is also one of those who swear by their love for not only tea but also snacks. They open up by 8am. Currently planning to open up earlier than usual.

They have a variety of tea and also a lot of options with regards to snacks like sandwiches, omelettes, desi options like poha, idli, missal, vada etc.

Tea is delivered like this!

Location and proximity from Station:

This one’s not too hard to find. It’s a 5-7 minute walk from JB Nagar metro station. 15 minutes from Andheri Station. Located in the by-lane of Kondivita, the nearest landmark to this would be the hotel Apna Dhaba.

 

Ambiance and seating:

MusTea is a small place and can easily seat 10-12 people maximum. The place is air conditioned. There’s no space congestion as such. The staff is courteous and will respond well to your questions too.

 

Tea and Snacks:

Yes, we were spoilt for options. My friend Mike had just returned from Bangalore that very afternoon and I got him along me for some tea and snacks. We tried 3 types of tea along with few snacks. Here’s what we had:

Kesar Tea with cookies: A clear winner. The aroma, the taste and yes it’s really hot. That’s how I like my Tea. The 2 cookies given alongside really compliment the overall feel. I must recommend this.

 

Mint Tea with cookies: Another clear favorite. Suggested by them, we tried this one and we thanked them for this choice. The taste is too good and for those who like pudina, this one’s a definite recommend.

 

Oolang Tea: Oolang here is full of antioxidants and gives you more of a green tea and healthy feeling. My friend didn’t like it much. I found it okay. It’s all about the acquired taste in the end.

 

They have almost 30 types of tea serving (with/without milk). You’ll be spoiled for choices.

 

Cheese Bun Maska: How can you miss having tea without bun maska. Here, they’ve gone a step further and added cheese. The overall impact? Yes, it’s fantastic. My friend loves cheese and went bonkers over this and every other dish with cheese.

Please note that there are a lot of snacking options available for you to enjoy your tea with. We tried the bun maska. You can try many other choices too.

 

Chicken Samosa: Yes, the chicken samosa. It was funny when we heard about it but on their insistence, we gave it a shot. I’m impressed. The bits of chicken with our regular samosa fit in well and we did like it.

 

MusTea’s signature omelette: They have a wide range of omelettes. It’s amazing. We were confused as to what to try and they again suggested their signature omelette. This one’s made with a lot of precision and with different layers. Makes you feel like you’re having a sandwich! And yes, there’s a lot of cheese too. This is served with partly fried bread. The 2nd best dish of the day!

 

Chicken Wrap: The chicken wrap here is very decent. The plus point is the quantity. I’m sure you’ll be full after you’re done with one full wrap! This is served along with wafers and veggies!

 

Mushroom on Toast: The best dish of the day. Mushroom on toast is an open faced sandwich with a lot of mushroom and cheese. God these guys love cheese too. Anyway, it’s our gain that they like cheese too. It’s really good.

 

Conclusion:

To conclude, I wish they had a lot of space but it’s alright as they deliver to the nearby places and a lot of corporate offices too. They deliver tea and snacks. From where I stand, that’s a win win! They have a reasonably priced menu and a lot of options in their menu. I’ll be surprised if someone doesn’t find something that they don’t like here. Cheers to MusTea.

The Thai food festival is on at the Red Olives multi restaurant in Powai from the 1st to 15th September 2017.

There’s a menu curated just for these 15 days and the food is worth it.

Location and proximity from Station:

This is located at Hiranandani in Powai. It’s quite at the center if I must say. Although it’s almost a 15-20 minute rickshaw ride away from either Ghatkopar station or from Saki naka metro station.

Ambiance and seating:

The place has good vibes and I liked the ambiance. There’s ample of seating available for almost 70 people. Also I was amazed to see more crowd on a Saturday afternoon than usual weekdays when this place is packed with teams coming for corporate lunch.

 

Food and Drinks (Appetizers):

We began with few mock-tails in the menu. We tried the mandarin mojito, kiwi and kokam and also the Red Olives special. While I liked all the three due to their flavors, the best one had to be the Mandarin mojito. It’s a recommend.

 

 

 

 

Soups :

Tom tum (Chicken) – Spicy chicken soup with lemongrass. I must say, this is a delight for those who are a bit unwell and also for those who like their soups with more spice.

Tom Yom Talay – A coconut and tamarind flavored fish soup. The thickness in the coconut soup was amazing. For the first time, I preferred the fish rather than the chicken soup.

Pho Pia Kung – I am not a person who likes prawns. But I did try these spicy thai prawn rolls. They look tiny but taste good.

Ki Satae – Chicken satay with peanut sauce. Yes, I never thought this combination would go so well but it did. It’s amazing.

Khek pla – These fish cakes have a decent taste and you can try it with the dip provided. There’s nothing too good nor bad about this.

Main Course:

Chicken Thai curry with steam/jasmine rice – I ought to try the green curry always. So when I’m at the Thai festival, there’s no way I’m missing it. Here, the Thai curry is indeed amazing and I can recommend you to try this. Easily the best dish of the day.

Phat Thai Sho Wong : This one’s a combination of fried rice and noodles with prawns and vegetables. Well I’m not a prawns fan but the dish was decent. A bit of tangy feeling but I’m sure that can be dealt with.

Desserts:

Orange and kafir panacotta – The panacotta in general was good but took a bit of effort to have. Yes, there was a lot of taste but maybe an off day for them. Could get way better.

Tapioca start-fruit pudding : This one had tapioca pearls and starfruit puree which made this a dessert to try for sure. There’s a lot of sweetness here.

Mango and toasted coconut cheesecake : The best dessert of the day. This mango and coconut flavored cheesecake is worth fighting for. There’s flavor, there’s a lot of sweet and yes, please do try it.

Conclusion:

Overall, this food festival is worth trying and must not be missed. There’s still another week to go for this and I urge you to try this. It’s new and different from what we try usually.
