Store Review – Zara, Mumbai

Yes, finally the prayers of us, Mumbaikars, have been answered. The brand Zara opens it’s first fashion outlet at Palladium Mall in Phoenix Mills. A little birdie had informed me that this new outlet in Mumbai is going to be one of the most expensive outlet in the world. And as I stepped into the store I expected it to be crowded with window shoppers. But surprisingly, there were women, men and children, stocking up their shopping carts like there’s no tomorrow. A glance at the fitting rooms and the cash counter actually got me worried, cause the queue seemed never ending.

And these shoes, are certainly on my wishlist! Don’t you dare eye ’em!

What you should look out for: Ladies, the shoes are going to make you go bonkers! They start at about 2k and go higher. You’d love the stilletos and wedges. The tops start at Rs 700 and go upto 3k and higher. Dresses start at Rs 1.5k. 
Men, you should totally check the blazers and fedoras out. They are absolutely stunning!
Lastly, the adorable swim suits and frilly skirts will totally make your children look like angels!
Overall, Zara is not overpriced for sure but if you plan to go there, make sure your pockets are full 🙂
Zara, welcome to Mumbai!
Venue: Zara, Palladium Mall, Ground Floor,

Restaurant Review: Pronto

I’m not a very big fan of Italian food, but yeah, once in a while, I really don’t mind it. Scouting around the city is a part of my job, and on one such aimless roaming day, I came across this little cozy eatery at Hill Road called Pronto. I kept my expectations low when I first stepped in cause the place was empty, unless I count the waiters.

Yeah, so I called for the Pasta Arrabiata with Penne. Honestly, I’m a cheese person and not quite fond of the red sauce pasta, but for some absurd reason, I decided to try this one. And trust me, I’ve gone there three times till date, and only ordered for the Arrabiata! It’s just perfect! Spicy, tangy and well-cooked. You already have a fan, Pronto!

Venue: Pronto, Hill Road, Next to Falafels
Pasta Arrabiata: Rs 140

Superheroes – From Reel to Real!

Venue: Carter Road, Bandra
The spirit of Mumbai without doubt deserves a huge applause. I was lucky enough to bump into a bunch of superheroes enjoying a smoke free ride on their cycles!

The sweet smiley witch was more than willing to pose for a picture when I asked her to! And don’t miss her magical broom on top of the back wheel.

I don’t know what he’s dressed as, a mob or a thief-hero 😉 Nevertheless, he looked adorable!

There’s Sapna Bhavnani along with the Green Woman and a ghost buster? Erm, I’m not too sure!

There he was, posing with his red mask and compact bicycle! 
That’s our superheroes, enjoying a much deserved serving of Matka Kulfi after a superb ride!
And the spirit of these guys has certainly tempted me to gift myself a bicycle, really soon fellas!
P.S: Apologies for the picture quality, all clicked from my blackberry since I wasn’t quite prepared for this one!
