REVIEW: THE BIG FLIP BAR

Another new bar in Bandra and this time it serves great food!
The Big Flip Bar has opened next to Bonobo on Linking Road and is a spacious bar with a few tables for diners. We went here on a weekday and it was pretty empty. They were playing great music and screening the match as well.

We tried a lot of food and most of it was great but here is the stuff I would definitely recommend. The Rosemary Spiced Stuffed Mushroom which was cheesy and yummy, the Ajwaini Spiced Potato Skins, were one of my favourites, came with Yellow Cheddar and Ranch Dressing, the Peshawari Pasliyaan – Tandoori Lamb Chops, so succulent and delicious, loved them and the Teriyaki Chicken Meal Bowl that came with rice was full of flavour and a must try.

Most of the desserts were not available the day we went so we just tried the Belgian Chocolate Verrine, which was alright. The Thandai Mousse and Rum Cake sounded like a better bet but were unavailable. In the drinks, we tried the Bull Frog, super potent, came with Gin, Vodka, Rum, Tequila, Triple Sec and Red Bull. Not for the faint hearted 🙂

The service was friendly and prompt, so no complaints there. Overall, the place looks and feels great. Looking forward to going back there on a weekend!

Review: Hoppipola

There’s one more new bar in the city and this one is absolutely delightful!

Hoppipola translates to Jumping in Puddles and there’s also a song made after this phrase. A hidden gem, located in the by lanes of Khar, the location is probably its only con. Because other than that we loved everything about this place.

A huge indoor seating and a adequately big alfresco seating, white and blue interiors, chalk board tables, board games, beer games and amazing cocktails. What is not to love about this place?

Hoppipola is sure to bring out the child in you as it did in us! Try their cocktails, the Watermelon and Basil Caprioshka being our favourite! The food however could get better, some hits and some misses. The Margarita Pizza and the Chicken Skewers were good, all the other bar nibbles had a bit too much salt.

Overall, we have already made three trips to this place in two weeks, so goes without saying that it has made it to our list of favourites!

Ssshh… Secret Bar In The City – Please Don’t Tell

There’s a new secret bar in the city, PDT – Please Don’t Tell. Why is it a secret bar you ask? Well because you need a code for the doors to let you in.

Smaaash has a new neighbour, PDT, located at Kamala Mills. The place is a vibrant yet rustic, with a high ceiling, molecular cocktails, some innovative quick bites and great music. The overall vibe of the place will get your feet tapping.
