Throwback to this family dinner at an overrated place, Meishi at The Park, Juhu last month. I had high expectations after seeing a lot of great "blogger" reviews 🙄 but the food was nothing special. Some of the items were good (like the pictured salad) 😋, some bad and the Tab Tim Krob dessert was terrible. The things I liked: 1. Vegan items are marked on the menu 🌱 (although many weren't available) 2. The manager was very helpful in figuring our order out, most of which was vegan and some vegetarian. (The non-vegan items all had cheese and my family said the vegan items were far better!)💃🏻 3. Their semi-private table is great for a family meal. . Overall, not worth a visit as the food and service are not worth the price. They seriously need to up their game. We could tell that the servers were having some issue in the background as they seemed to be arguing. Despite the restaurant being empty, other servers wouldn't come to our table even to refill water and would stand around and wait for our server to return. 🤷🏻♀️ Save your money and go elsewhere. (I'd pick Yauatcha!) 🏃🏻♀️ . Also, a reminder that not everything on Instagram is real so don't take everything you come across at face value! I'm learning some lessons. 😄 . 📍@meishi.mumbai, Juhu, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
Nothing beats this Ambassador Idli dish at Dakshinayan! 😍 Mini idlis dunked in sambar, and topped with onions, tomatoes, freshly grated coconut and coriander. I top it further with all their yum chutneys! 😋 Such a filling dish and perfect comfort food for the weirdly rainy day in Mumbai today. 🌧️ We also got their Adai dosa with onions (gluten-free crepe made of a mix of lentils, rice and spices) made without any butter, ghee or oil. ✅ (See it in my Stories) @veganbombayboy and I love going here for a quick meal once in a while and fortunately the food's always been consistent. 👍🏼 . 📍@_dakshinayan_, Walkeshwar, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
Salad bowl 🥗 at Kitchen Garden, Juhu last weekend...I ordered it with some of my fave things besides veggies and greens - 🍠 roasted sweet potatoes, grilled tofu, quinoa, spicy nuts and seeds in their Spicy Miso Ginger dressing. I used to love this combo at the BKC outlet but this one was a bit too salty possibly due to too much miso. I'll switch to another dressing next time and see if that helps. Hope it's nothing to do with them expanding quickly and not maintaining standards cos I really love this place! 🌱 @veganbombayboy had a similar combo but with an orange dressing...I liked mine more. 😃 . Posting on Insta after almost a month...ended up being an unplanned break while I spent some time on other life things! Hope all of you have had a good month! 💗🙋🏻♀️ . 📍@kitchengardenbysuzette, Juhu, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
A yum salad bowl at Bombay Salad Co! I chose the Make Your Own option so I could pick my fave things. 😍 I got: . • Base: Roquette, Kale, Mixed Beans (Black beans and Black eyed peas) • Basic Veggies: Grated Carrot, Grated Beetroot, Sprouts, Broccoli, Jalapeño 🥕 • Premium Veggies: Sun-dried Tomatoes, Grilled Mushrooms, Grilled Tofu, Baked Sweet Potato, Avocado 🍅🍄🍠🥑 • Fruits + Crunch: Mixed Seeds (Don't mix fruits with veggies) • Dressing: Coconut Curry (vegan and oil-free). Surprisingly light and yum. ✅ Most of their vinaigrettes are vegan but unfortunately, their 2 other oil-free dressings aren’t vegan. . Overall, my salad was delicious and filling. The only thing I didn’t like was their tofu. Wish they change that to a softer one or a smoked tofu! 😋 . @veganbombayboy made his own salad too but I forgot to take a photo! 😄 . I'd heard so much about this place over the years but never made it there sooner as getting into Bandra from South Bombay is never convenient. 😄 Glad I finally tried it out. Visiting on a weekday afternoon was perfect as it wasn't very busy. 🌱 . 📍@bombaysalad, Bandra, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . . . . #HappyCow @happycow #abillionveg @abillionveg #letsguide @googlelocalguides
Lunch at Seeds of Life, a new veggie place with lots of vegan (and gluten-free) options in Bandra (not Bali) 😄. They don't use refined white flour or refined sugar. ✅ It's a small space that was packed so we had to wait for over 30 minutes but the menu seemed interesting. . We got: 1. Lebanese Bowl - Hummus, tomato couscous, baked falafel, broccoli, pickled vegetables, avocado and harissa. - This dish was pretty good. The baked falafels were excellent. 🥙 2. Sol Signature Curry - Coconut milk vegetable curry with quinoa. - Nothing special. Skip this one. 🍛 3. Mashed Sweet Potatoes - Very peppery so I'd skip this next time. They did offer to replace it but we didn't want the dish to go to waste. 🍠 4. Call Me Cacao Smoothie - Cacao, banana, dates, almond milk, chia seeds. - This was good like any cacao smoothie should be! 😁 Could totally satisfy a dessert craving! 🍫 5. No-sugar Vegan Cacao Almond Flour Tart - We opted for the un-sweetened one as both @vpersonalise and I are hoping to go through September #sugarfree! (The sweet one had coconut sugar so may be another time!) It was creamy and luscious but of course I missed the sugar. 🙃😬 . I'd probably want to visit again after a few months or at an odd time (not lunch) to try out other stuff! Not the best meal but so grateful for the increasing vegan options in Mumbai! 🌱 . 📍@seedsoflife_mumbai, Bandra, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . . #HappyCow @happycow #abillionveg @abillionveg #letsguide @googlelocalguides
Lunch thali at Aharveda, an all-vegan restaurant that is also oil-free, gluten-free and refined-sugar-free! Swipe to see the Thali menu for the day. 🤤 . Check out my previous post to see what else we got here! 🌱 . 📍@aharvedafood, Andheri W, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
When Google Assistant takes you back to a time full of amazing memories... Christmas in Peru 🇵🇪 in 2014. 📅 This was the first country of my three-month solo trip across South America. ✈️🌎 Four years later, it still feels surreal... At times I can't believe I did this but it was surely the best decision I've ever made! 😇 I still remember the mixed feelings and slight panic I felt the night that I was leaving home but a few days into the trip, I felt so calm and settled...wherever I was felt like home! 🏡 It's not very common for Indian women (especially Gujarati women) to travel solo so I'm even more grateful for this life-changing experience! 🌟 . This🎄tree made from plastic bottles was in Aguas Calientes, the sleepy town from where you can visit the fascinating citadel of Machu Picchu. . . . #grateful #throwback #peru #machupicchu #indiantraveller #visitperu #exploreperu #southamerica #visitsouthamerica #travel #travelblogger #travelgram #doyoutravel #gujju #ladiesgoneglobal #iamatraveler #gujarati #beautifuldestinations #theculturetrip #instatravel #travelphotography #igtravel #traveladdict #forbestravelguide #saynotoplastic #christmas #merrychristmas #christmastree #christmastime #christmaseve
Loooooved watching the Broadway musical, Hairspray, on the @symphonyoftheseas1. Best seats thanks to our Royal Genie, Sunil. I liked this a lot more than Cats on #oasisoftheseas last summer.

So impressed with the entertainment options on this ship. 🤩🚢 . . . #throwback #cruiselife #cruisetime #cruise #cruiseship #royalcaribbean #royalcaribbeancruise #symphonyoftheseas #royalcaribbeanblog #hairspray #musical #ship #cruising #familyholiday #traveldiaries #travelgram #instatravel #traveller #adiventuroustravels #bestseats #royalgenie #potd #picoftheday #indiantraveller #travelling #vacation #happy #fun
