Before ideas fly by, I met Revathi at Little India last evening and we both were bored. She claimed to be hungry as well. I do not mind eating as long as there is boredom and company. Hunger is kind of not my consideration for good food.
We walked to Bombay Cafe. It is a very famous place, and not one you can miss; but I had never been there earlier. The place is bollywood inspired. It has posters, neon lighted posters and pink furniture. There, I said it. Yes, it is in pink. Go and see for yourself if you do not believe me.
The menu is very impressive. It has got pictures that will make you hungry and a wide range of stuff to order. We could not have tried all varieties. Here is their complete menu.
We ordered a Gobi Manchurian (dry) for starters. It was crispy yet soft on the interior, and very peppry spicy. One word - Must try!
Like any self respecting Indian, I love Indian inspired chinese food. I heard Indian Wok above also serves tasty food. There is a good choice of sizzlers choices for maincourse. We ordered the Kebab Platter Sizzler.
We had lemon based drinks - a soda and a shikanjvi ( a lemon drink with loads of chat masala and amchur). They had a impressive dessert menu, falooda et all. Next time :)
Over all, Bombay Cafe is a good place to go with a group, catch up with some tasty food. The place is smoky and noisy. Also, it is pink. So if these turn off your appetite, visit Indian Wok. Heard it is more of a fine dining place. The sizzler is a huge serving. So, do not get over ambitious and order way to much.
A meal for two, with drinks costs 40- 45 dollars.
Also, if you are in SG and looking for good Indian valentine's day meals - check this dinner at Annalakshmi.
A huge thanks to Revathi for mast company, and to Chandru for promptly sending the Annalakshmi picture!
