Yeh Dil Mangii More!

After Breaking Bread at Le Pain Quotidien, it was time to experience some more gourmet delights with
This time we chose Cafe Mangii at Powai, closer to home. And we rushed there with with a lot of expectations of a delightful and hearty meal.
At Cafe Mangii, we were ushered in by a courteous and pleasant waiter - the basic courtesies undoubtedly add to the culinary experience - I would give Cafe Mangii full marks on this count.

The three course menu! 

An interesting bottle that has both olive oil and vinegar!

We chose the goat cheese gnocchi and the Mediterranean pizza. To save time, we requested the waiter to serve us the two courses together, and he graciously obliged!
It seems the Chef was having a bad day, the gnocchi was overcooked and it disintegrated at the touch of the fork. The ingredients were indeed awesome - the pesto was earthy and the pine nuts crunchy!

The Mediterranean pizza was crisp and crunchy - the crust was awesome but the was a strange taste in the sauce, it certainly didn't taste right! And that was a tad disappointing....

I was looking for a delectable and sinful dessert. Neeti and I zeroed on the red velvet cake, but that too was a bit soggy!
I wondered whether it was a matter of chance, that one in a million kind of an event that we weren't too satisfied with this GourmetItUp experience or was Cafe Mangii really not up to it....? But to be fair, I would give full marks to the helpful staff there!
Anyways, I came out feeling Yeh Dil Mangii More.... after all Mangii could be a lot more better!

As we stepped out of Cafe Mangii, I could help but notice the middle aged couple that moved out of FabIndia, the lady had done a massive shopping, but it was her husband who was carrying the bags for her. People may make fun of that, but perhaps, it is an expression of true love!

The Splendor Of A Moonlight Night!

During the walk downstairs, I was enthralled by the beauty of the bright moon and the clouds around it. I could not help clicking photographs of the moonlight night sky....
Indeed Nature does give these precious moments to pause, forget the crap around you, to get enthralled in the lovely surprises it has offer and end up in wonderous amazement....
Enjoy the splendor of the moonlight night sky, the splendor of nature, with me! 

Bombaypolis Moments.... Part 16

Monsoon clouds loom over BKC, the quintessential concrete jungle!

Clouds over Mumbai airport's new, iconic ATC tower, which I believe started operations today!

That's what I call getting "traff..ked"!

Monsoon clouds give a lovely reflection on the glass exteriors...

An armada of cirrocumulus stratiformis clouds!


And the sun sets, only to rise back tomorrow morning in our megapolis!

Bombaypolis Moments.... Part 15

Bombaypolis Moments is back!!!

This photograph pretty much sums it all.... Mumbai is all about high-rises, the omni-present slums, which give the city the notoriety of being called Slumbai(!), traffic snarls, the sea and the wonderful green you get to see when the Monsoon sets in!

Caged in a highrise?

An interesting oval ceiling at Oshiwara's Mega Mall - for many this is what they see of the sky the whole day!

Have I left Mumbai?
No, I am on Aarey Road, which criss-crosses Aarey Colony, the city's lung!

You won't believe you are in Mumbai when you drive on this road...

It's so green out here!

And branches of trees form a wonderful canopy!
