We were invited for a lunch with other media and blogger colleagues and this was what we tried. The lunch began with some refreshing Sol kadhi and a chilling glass of Thandai . The Thandai was so good that it got over before I could even realize it. The Sol kadhi complimented the meal.

The starters were the stars of the lunch . I will start with my personal favourite the Prawns Chatpata, a spicy preparation of prawns with raw onion, a perfect match. The prawns were perfectly cooked and were of ideal bite size portions . A perfect starter in my opinion.

Chicken Malvani Tikka, a juicy melt in the mouth tikka with a mild curd dressing. It is a perfect dish if like white meat. The chicken was well seasoned and had a hint of spice to add the perfect taste to it.

Mutter Karanji, a crispy karanji with a sweet pea filling. Simple yet a sweet dish. The filling was good and the covering was paper-thin so it was the right blend of sweet and savoury.

Kothimbir Wadi, normally all the wadis i have had earlier were very oily or were not that great. But this place is an exception, the wadi had a good flavour going and was not at all oily. The crunch, when you bite into it and then it simply melts in your mouth. Simply awesome.

The main course consisted of Goan fish curry, Birdyachi usal, Chicken Sagoti and Biryani . The Birdyachi usal is normally made at weddings which is said that if the usal is not good the wedding food was not that good. This particular dish had a sweet flavour and went great with the meal.

The fish curry was a hit for me and went great with a rice roti more like an appam which is called amboli.

The wadi was piping hot and i loved it by itself. The wadi is like a roti and goes well with all the dishes.

The desserts served were Chikki Ice-cream. The combination was an ideal choice for sweet lovers. Huge chunks of chikki in vanilla ice-cream topped with syrup. The chikki gave a good texture to the dessert.

Kharvas is made with the first milk of the cow after it gives birth. Its is a must try. A very famous Maharashtrian dessert, it is not very sweet and tastes more like a milk pudding or a custard.

So overall if you are a true lover of Maharashtrian cuisine and it’s culture, do not miss this. You would not regret it.
