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 🇮🇳 . . .
Delish birthday lunch (in August) at Aharveda, a restaurant that is vegan 😍, oil-free, gluten-free and refined-sugar-free (and yet the food is delicious and approved by non-vegans!) 🤩 We got: 1. The healthiest sizzler in the city! My fave dish...love all the veggies, the zero-oil fries, rice noodles and the yum sauce that comes with it. 🤤🤤🤤 2. Paratha Platter - Amaranth parathas stuffed with veggies served with black dal and chutneys. I haven't had black dal in a restaurant since I've been vegan! It was so nice to find this yum vegan version here! 🥕 3. Amaranth flour pizza topped with veggies and cashew powder - Good for a super healthy version but may not satisfy a pizza craving! 😄 We get tons of amazing vegan cheese pizzas in so many cafes now that you could skip this one here. 4. Garlic bread - Super cheesy and yum 🤤 5. White Pasta - Quinoa pasta tossed in white sauce and Italian seasoning - The sauce tasted good but the pasta had drowned in it so may be you could ask them to use half the quantity! 6. Aharveda Coffee - A super yum no-coffee filter coffee! You've got to try this one! ☕ . My mom got the Aharveda Thali which deserves its own post so that's coming up next! . This is a great place to visit for food made using local, organic produce. 🌱 This one is unique amongst vegan cafes in the city given the number of Indian food options on their menu that are all healthy, of course. It was also a hit with my dad's friends who were visiting from the US. What I love is that even after eating so much, everyone felt quite light after! ✅ . 📍@aharvedafood, Andheri W, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
🇸🇬 Singapore Diaries 🇸🇬: Ice cream pitstop before we head to the airport. I'd heard a lot about Birds of Paradise - a Michelin-recommended ice cream store - so we had to check it out. We had to wait in line for 10-15 minutes...Singaporeans are so patient in queues - it's amazing! ⏲️ Surely something to learn from for an impatient Bombay person like me! 😬 They had 3 vegan options (sorbets) - we got their Chocolate and Mango sorbets in a cup (their cones aren't vegan). 🍨 The third option was a floral one that my niece wasn't interested in. These were nice - I loved the chocolate 🍫 but not the mango 🥭 so much. My niece enjoyed the mango! Definitely not rich and creamy (as they are sorbets) but worth a try if you happen to be around. I hope they come up with more vegan options! 🐄 . 📍@bopgelato, Jewel Changi, Singapore 🇸🇬 . . .
🇸🇬 Singapore Diaries 🇸🇬: Lunch at Green Ba, a vegetarian restaurant that sounded promising but was rather disappointing. . We got the: • Vegetable Curry with Prata - The curry was flavourful 🍛 but the prata was chewy. (Usually the prata in local shops isn't vegan but this one was 🌱). • Pineapple Fried Rice - This had a very strong turmeric taste and hardly any pineapple flavour. 🙁🍍🍚 • California Maki - recommended by the server but strictly okay. . All the portions are huge and given the average taste, we couldn't finish everything. It was quite busy though we saw people eating a lot of burgers rather than local food. A pity as the menu looked interesting. Hope they can work on the taste. They also had a vegan dessert display that looked pretty good but we didn't try any. . @green.ba, 111 Somerset, Singapore 🇸🇬 . . .
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.
