Appetiso : Appetising to the MECHO in me 

If ghosts exist –  After my worldly affairs come to an end, I would definitely apply to be a MECHO BHOOT. The GHOST obsessed with eating fish. They go lurking around homes in search of the smell of FISH and steals them. Considering job applications are a thing in afterlife,  I would a perfect fit –  I absolutely love fish, lurking can be a hobby considering it has a kinda detective note (I’m a fan of detective novels & movies)  and stealing definitely has a trill element.

Coming to this life, the budding Mecho Bhoot in me was satiated by the Good Old Fish and Chips at Appetiso.  It had about 200gms of pure, fresh, juicy basa and a crisp exterior.  This was pure love. #MustTry

Appetiso is a brand selling hygienic fried food with kiosks located at Kasba & Golpark. I thank Akriti Shanghavi Arora,  the owner for her hospitality.

I also liked the fish with mustard sauce. Thick fish fries with some tangy mustard was blissful.  The quantity was quite decent.

What I loved about  Appetiso is that the fries weren’t heavy on the stomach.  And they were cooked in excellent quality oil. The batter used for frying ended up making the fries tasty but wasn’t too overbearing. The proportion of fish/meat to batter was suitable. 

I also quite liked the chicken fingers & french fries. They came in amply quantity and the packaging was travel friendly.

The best part – home delivery via Zomato & Swiggy.  I’m going to order some fish soon to go with my Big Bang Theory binge watching. Thanks Atreya Paul & Riti Jinia for the invitation.

Chili’s : Top Fusion Menu

Hey Guys, coming up with the new blog after a long time. But I had to write about the delicious voyage that is the new Top Fusion Menu at Chili’s. I hopped in after some Durga Puja Pandal hopping and was tired to the core. They welcomed me with a warm smile and the top fusion menu. It made my day.IMG_20170925_233128_558

Located strategically inside the comforts of Acropolis Mall, my heart yearned for this place after the arduous(read Hot & Dusty) Pandal hopping. The decor of this place always manages to warm heart and please my eyes.

BBQ steak in Chimichurri with Corncob : It simply tasted amazing. Well done steak which did not go hard – now that’s a dream !! Most steaks are either slightly bloody or you end up using the entire power of your teeth to just get a bite.A healthy portion of Steak, with lots of mashed potato and roasted onion, topped with the Chimichurri Sauce. It was delectable the core and is a must must try. IMG_20171009_164011_918_wm

Orange Glazed Salmon : I’m a fish addict, and for years have been nicknamed ‘MECHO’ (the Bengali Ghost obsessed with Fish; and why not I’m a Bengali, we are renowned for just that and well , also laziness). I wear this name with pride.The Salmon was simply awesome,and yes the Barney Stinson kind . Its a must try, undoubtedly. A giant sized salmon with boiled exotic veggies and red rice. Yes, I have another Bengali trait. The love for rice. And the red rice is superb.IMG_20171009_163541_420_wm

Big Mouth Wings : ENORMOUS wings that satiated my eyes and my stomach. 6 giant wings, a subtle dip and hangry(anger that comes from hunger) me – perfect combination.

Blackened Bhetki (Fish) : This is another fish option that is equally delicious. This new addition to the menu happens to one of my favorites and not just coz I made this huge statement about being a ‘MECHO’ earlier (pun intended). I genuinely loved the bhetki, and the flavors infused perfectly. This also came with a helping of Red Rice & Boiled Veggies.  IMG_20171009_163303_599_wm

Roasted Veggies Fajita : A great vegetarian option – Exotic Veggies , Cottage Cheese, and a wide array of condiments. I always find the fajitas at Chili’s extremely filling and this wasn’t any different. A definite must try if Veg is on your mind. IMG_20171009_163032_543_wm

Coffee Mousse Cake : This was plain heaven. A rich & dense concoction of Coffee and Mousse atop a think slice of chocolate cake. A blissful experience. I really could not have imagined a better finale than this.IMG_20171009_163351_166_wm

Heartfelt Thanks to Pradosh Pati from Chili’s Acropolis for hosting this event. And many congratulations to the staff for their courteous and ever-so-smiling attitude.
