I would start a chain of blogs with genres and cover almost all aspects of lifestyle and other niches while we complete the fest. For example, my first blog would be on pregnancy stages while second can be on fashion styles. I can dedicate my third one for food and the fourth one for technology. Similarly, writing on travel for the fifth and finance for the sixth would be a great choice too. I am planning to let my seventh post be dedicated to food and eighth one for travel! Who knows I may even cross the eight figure and write more!

When food blogging takes you places!

Being a foodie is a huge accomplishment in itself! Trying and tasting out varied items of food, preparing them at home or just going out door food trails, it’s the irresistible charm of being a die heart foodie. Turning in to a food blogger is your craze and passion for food driving you in to writing and sharing it all with your friends and followers. My journey if food blogging started all with the love for trying out various sweet and spicy delicacies and about experimenting all that preparations at home. It’s just an amazing feel when you get your favorite recipe of a certain dish, personalise it with your ideas and later create your baby, a great new delectable dish to devour!

I simply loved baking those exotic cookies, ravishing cakes and some really tasty indian and continental food. And sharing those recipes on my blog, getting an applaud for the same always enhanced my joy and encouraged me to further pursue the trail. Being a Mumbaikar, my love for street food was but natural! This took me places to relish those street food delights and pointing out all of them through my blog and even getting more people getting to know these yet unexplored points of deliceous treats. From those delectable pizzas at mojo, to trying out yummy cheesy more varied ones from pizzabox to giving it a more personalise touch at 1441pizzeria, my passion and love for pizzas always increased after trying out these. When organic and hygienic plus vegetarian options combined, some places like le cafe garde manger, above and beyond, the American joint seem to get a heads up at serving the best food in the most unique way! Non vegetarian and exotic, a rare combination but perfectly blended at the Persian darbar, morselo, 5 spice and the Carter’s blue! The ambience plus good food always made your dining out a happy eating experience! When I was too lazy to step out and needed sone really good meals at home, curry me up, box 8, mr.chows and sprout gourmet did all the needful. Perfect packaging and a great taste always made them my favourite to order and devour. Perfect pure Maharashtrian cuisine gets a new name with Jivhala, while exotic chinese food gets renowned with deliceous food at Emprino. It’s all just too deliceous to leave. Wraps are the new love in town, I just went crazy tasting those from box8 and faasos.

When snacking on burgers and sandwiches who could beat that’s cheesy and shalimar cool point for it. I simply loved their softest buns turning a great burger with efforts.

Be it the love of avadhi cuisine at keizer or for those mid night cravings for unique flavoured icecream at where’s my cone, my cravings got just the right places to have them.

For the call of a perfect chai at chaayos or a typical coffee craving at CCD, these places always served the best and made me return for more.

Even food tasting seems so much awesome when I got some relishing samples from epigamia Greek yogurt and some cool flavoured popcorns fro Wow popcorns.

While I just loved sharing some of these experiences of my blog, my tweets, getting them known through my instagram posts and facebook made it mote recognised amongst my friends. The joy of sharing it through my zomato reviews got doubled when I got a string recognition of followers who simply loved my reviews there. Well, the journey as they say it’s not over as long as you live! I still am exploring the best of food joints around mumbai, trying out the delectable cuisines almost everywhere and pouring all mu experiences through my writings and pictures. I just hope to keep on getting more love and encouragement from foodies worldwide and some new ideas to try out those delectable dishes too.

Box 8 a perfect meal time! 

Box8 Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

A healthy with a variety is always yummy to have! Box 8 is just the name what flicks in your mind when you think of pure Indian food presented in the most delicious, compatible way. 

Bringing in a healthier twist to our Indian flavours along with some juicy saucy touch to it, the box8 wraps and sandwiches are something to grab a bite of! The triple decker chicken sandwich is one of the example of thier scrumptious healthy treat. Three layered wheat bread sandwich along with s mixture of sauces, chicken and some veggies is just a perfect meal to grab.

The wraps are no lesser healthier and tastier.  Chicken mayo wrap and chef special panneer wrap are some of my favorite and exotic to have. The perfect Roti base and the delicious mixture if sauces with some veggies tossed is just so tempting, filling and healthy too.

I really liked the newly introduced concept of thier fusion meal boxes that contained everything from gravies too parathas , rice, salad and a deszert. The options offered in this is large too. I prefer the panneer makhani meal from those. 

The peshawari chicken box is something really tempting and exotic for the non vegetarians out there . Chicken pieces with masala and some plain rice is just lovely to try. 

Desserts are no more an exception when it comes for serving some delectable meals from box 8! Choco lava, gulab jamuns, moong dal halwa and muffins are some of them . But I prefered the chocolate brownies this time. Really liked thier soft heavily feel and the delicious chocolate taste. Thier signature bevarages of that being a lemon flavor and an ice tea is something worth trying too.

 These and those charming palettes and packing and on time delivery adds in to the glamour of this super delicious range of food offerings.

Apart from all these, the interview I recently read of the founder of box 8 chain really left me impressed and eager to try out more varieties from them what caught my attention most was this query and the answer to it.

When designing Box8’s menu, what did you want to keep in mind (in terms of taste, value for money, variety and so on). How do Box8’s dishes appeal to the Indian palate?

The focus lies in preparing food which is delicious, easy on the stomach and made from quality ingredients, allowing the consumers to order food frequently

Our mantra is: Serve what we love to eat.

We have a twofold intent, one is to offer our customers different experience through different categories and second is to be a one stop solution for a full course meal or for snacks:-

‘All in one’ offers a wholesome indian meal with a main curry and a side curry along with rice or paratha and a dessert to compliment. ‘Box’ offers fusion of different indian delicacies like dal, Paneer, rice along with Chatni, salad etc.

Wraps, sandwich and salads in many cases acts like evening or late night snack.
