Which Aaswad is this? I'm a regular at the Shivaji Park one, and have visited the Ghatkopar outlet, but this doesn't look like either of them. Not seeing any other Aaswad on Zomato either.

Did you like the Misal at the Ghatkopar outlet? I didn't.

There seems to be one as Kopar Khairne also.

This is the one near Dadar (West) On Gokhale Road. Closer to Kabutarkhana. Even I thought there is only 1 Aswaad and have been watching videos of kunal Vijaykar's YT to check out foodie joints.

Off Topic: Sad to hear the incident of 1 Above and Mojo's. May those souls rest in peace. Looking at Zomato reviews/pics, the place looked nice spot for vegetarians.

Original one has been shifted to new location at Gokhale Road before Portuguese Church, due to building redevelopment.

Yes, and surely in misal Prakash takes the hat

I wish to express my deepest sympathies and condolences to the lives lost in the tragedy at 1 Above & Mojos. Young lives were lost in the prime of their youth. Nothing will compensate the families for the loss they are suffering and it is indeed a very sad way for 14 families to end the year and begin a new year.
May whichever God they pray to, give the families the strength and fortitude to persevere.
The inevitable blame game will commence, lot of other restaurants will be inspected, a few bad actors will be hauled up. I hope the unfortunate and untimely demise of these 14 souls will inspire the city and hopefully the nation to get its act together and ensure such tragedies do not occur in the future.

Rest In Peace, departed souls.

Mysore Cafe at Maheshwari Udyan has now started a fully AC joint a few doors down towards the flyover from the original establishment.
In the original establishment, you had to mountain climb to the upper floor which is Air conditioned. Elderly people like my parents have a tough time climbing up to the AC section.
So I am very happy that they have started another joint that is fully air conditioned. This joint has a ground floor and first floor too.
This place only opens at 1100 in the morning though.

For the South Mumbai lovers, the ambience of the US club at Colaba is wonderful. The location, the wide menu options and the rather inexpensive booze make it a 'must go to' place. The starters are excellent too.

For South Indian food, no place is better than Matunga. Rama Nayak's for the thali and Sharda Bhavan for very authentic fare.

For veg thaalis, Panchavati Gaurav at Metro is superb. So is Samrat at Churchgate.

My favourite South Indian veg place in Bombay is Cafe Udipi in Chembur between Ambedkar Udyan and Chembur Station. Their upma especially is the best I have ever eaten. And it's the same great upma for the last 30 years (the restaurant is much older than 30). They have everything from thalis to idlis, dosas etc.

So happy to see a mention of Sharda Bhavan here - it's my favourite! Most people usually like Madras Cafe or the others. Have been going to Sharda Bhavan since my teens; love their mysore sada dosa and that amazing chutney (taste has remained the same since 25 years!).

Also wanted to put in a good word for 'The Roll Company' here. The best rolls I've had in Bombay, especially their Paneer Makhani & Chole Papdi ones.

Went to Aaswad at Ghatkopar/Vidyavihar today to get Misal takeout. They said I would have to bring my own vessel from home for takeout :-( They said they can pack the ghatia/onions etc in paper boxes but what will they pack the misal itself in?

Default Kath and Ghat

There is a new Maharashtrian place called "Kaath and Ghat" in Thane.

As the name suggests it's nothing but all Maharashtrian veg and non veg dishes you can think of under one roof. They have various types of Marathi pickles and sweet dishes. Kheer, Mastani, Halva to name a few. Food is not from just one region of Maharashtra. They have tried to cover multiple regional local dishes such as Konkan, Vidarbha and Khandesh.

Amazing ambience


Service slightly slow. May be due to the rush on Sat night but wait time was just 10 mins and food served quickly.

Price not so bad. Grossly justified for a five star like atmosphere.

We ordered Savji Chicken, Aagri Mutton, Tambda Rassa Soup, Rice and Kharvas. Just around 1700 Rs for 3 people.

It's right on the Mumbai Nasik highway on the East side. Opp side of Viviana mall (not exactly opposite). Another landmark Hyundai pre-owned show room just next to it .

You must give it a shot.

Was at Souk last night. Used to be my favourite at one time. Now, it's just another 'good' restaurant IMHO.

Independent restaurants have beaten the 5-star hotel ones black & blue when it comes to cuisine or experience. There was a time (say, 1990s) where one would frequent 5-stars once a week, or twice. Now, it's like once a month. I much prefer opening up Zomato and checking one of the awesome new places out. There's too much happening on the independent food scene now.

See what I meant? Went to Bay Route @ Powai over the weekend. The food was exceptional, and so was the service. Would strongly recommend this restaurant. Same cuisine as the Souk, but much better and lower pricing too (although it's still expensive). The way items are presented will blow your mind.

They also have an outlet at Cuffe Parade which is smaller. Bookings recommended. They're always full.
