We dropped by at the newly opened 1441 Pizzeria in Andheri recently and we had quite a fun time. The concept of this Pizzeria is very simple; choose your sauce, your toppings (unlimited), the crispness of the base, your cheese and voila! A perfect pizza with all your favourite toppings is here for you to enjoy.

We tried two variants on our visit, one from the Classic range and one from their Gourmet range.  From the classics, we chose the Mama sauce, which is a spicy sauce – pretty impressive we must say!

We went with our favourite vegetarian toppings,  olives, jalapenos and mushrooms on a crispy base with Mozzarella Cheese (Classic range is served with Mozzarella). The Chef there helped us put out Pizza in their wood fired oven and there we had our classic pizza with our favourite toppings ready. The Pizza tasted great with the perfectly crispy thin base and toppings of our choice!

Next up was a Gourmet Pizza where we opted for the non – vegetarian option with again an array of delicious gourmet toppings. We added almost all the non vegetarian toppings from the roast chicken, curried chicken, chicken pepperoni, mutton alongwith the regular pizza sauce and four cheeses. How can anything with so many toppings taste anything but delicious! Kudos to us and their Pizzas!

Moving to the desserts we called for the Blueberry Pannacotta and the Crème Brulee. The Pannacotta was a tad too sweet with no tanginess from the blueberries but the Crème Brulee was pretty good. We were almost done with our meal when the server insisted that we try their Nutella Pizza. How could we say no? And glad we didn’t as it was Heavenly! Nutella smothered on a thin and soft pizza base with fruit toppings, totally recommend it!

The staff here is pretty friendly too, they patiently taught us how to make our pizzas. Special mention to the hygiene they maintain at their Pizzeria, everything looked and tasted fresh too.

Overall we loved their pizzas and their desserts. They also have Dough Balls – two variants that we shall try on our next visit!

P.S. You can enjoy their Bottomless Aerated Beverage (Unlimited) at Rs. 55 AI with your pizzas too!

Review: Woodside All Day Bar & Eatery

After winning the hearts of thousands with its Colaba outlet, Woodside opens an all day dining outlet in the burbs! Andheri welcomes this beauty with open arms and pints of beers!

Known for its burgers and beers, we decided to drop in here for a full-fledged lunch. With a warm ambience adorned with wooden furniture and a well stocked bar, the inside section of Woodside is the perfect option on a sunny day. However, if you’re visiting this place post noon, opt for their alfresco dining area which is more relaxed, vibrant and full on energy.

The menu of Woodside is quite similar to one in Colaba, with a couple of additions. There are burgers, sandwiches, salads, pizzas, pastas and mains. Also, they have quite a tempting selection of desserts! Besides the luscious burgers, we would recommend the ‘Chicken Caesar Salad’, the ‘Fish Fingers with Tartar dip’, the ‘Pesto Grilled Chicken with Fresh Mozzarella Pizza’ and the ‘Grilled Rawas with Lemon Caper Sauce’.

The service at Woodside is pleasing and prompt; they don’t keep you waiting for too long for your meal and are willing to alter the dishes according to your preferences. Overall, Woodside is a charming option for a romantic meal, a casual lunch or a relaxed dinner with your friends. If you haven’t been here yet, you’re definitely missing out on something!

Review: The Wedding Cafe & Lounge

For every girl who dreams about her Prince Charming and the White Horse, The Wedding Café & Lounge will definitely take you into the world of your fantasies. With beautiful white interiors, to wedding attire stores, this restaurant cum wedding planning agency, is a whole new concept brought to the city. 
Our trip to the Wedding Café was more than just pleasant. As we entered, the charming white interiors and the flower arrangement took us by delight. We looked around to see tables for fours and sixes, a private dining area and a bar area. Since we couldn’t spot a table for two, we occupied the one next to the huge French window. The staff promptly attended to us and gave us the gigantic and rather uncomfortable menu. 

The menu comprised of international cuisines including French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Indian. We called for the Barbeque Chicken Wings for starters and the Chef’s Special Pasta (Red Sauce) for the mains. Alongwith this, we called for a Peach Iced Tea and the Kiwi Hazelnut Cocktail which was recommended by the bartender.

The Barbeque Chicken Wings were fried and served with the Barbeque Sauce, crisp and cooked to perfection! The Pasta was equally delicious, served with garlic bread and had chicken pieces, mushroom and capsicum in it. Coming to the drinks, the Peach Iced Tea was tangy and tasted almost like an Orange flavoured mocktail. The Kiwi Hazelnut Cocktail was good but could have been better if it was a little mild; the taste of vodka was overpowering the flavours of Kiwi and Hazelnut.

At the end of the meal, we asked the server for a dessert recommendation to which he got us the ‘Love Boat’ for us, Chocolate Mousse with a base of cake served with Vanilla Ice Cream and topped with chocolate sauce. Only one word can describe it, blissful. It’s rightly said, save the best for the last, and voila, we did!

Review: Fat Cat Cafe

Absurd as its name may sound, Fat Cat Cafe is a great place to enjoy a relatively formal meal. Yes, you guessed it right, it’s not a cafe, it’s a fine-dine restaurant that serves Italian cuisine and flaunts an extensive bar menu. 
We decided to drop in at Fat Cat Cafe for lunch. As we entered, we noticed that the restaurant is spacious and is divided into two sections by a raised floor.

We were politely guided to a table and breadsticks alongwith three dips were served immediately. The menu comprises of Sandwiches, Burgers, Salads, Soups, Appetizers, Pastas and Mains. We called for the Pasta Alfredo with Added Grilled Chicken and the House Smoked Chicken.

The Pasta Alfredo was prepared in cream sauce and was well cooked. However, the quantity of meat could have definitely been better as we were charged for the chicken separately. The House Smoked Chicken was recommended by the server and was definitely a better bet! It was tender, flavourful and absolutely delightful!

On the whole, this place is a great option for a first date or a formal meeting. The service is prompt and the food is delicious if you choose the right thing. Go for the servers recommendation and you certainly won’t be disappointed.
