Sun Moon & Potatoes

Hey Everyone, Hope you all are doing great and welcoming the festive season with some great food and lots of Mithai. So thanks to Ganesh Chaturti, me and my brother had a long weekend and decided to catch up on a movie (Heroine) which was disastrous but thankfully we decided to have a quick dinner before the movie, so we decided to go to Sun Moon and Potatoes which luckily wasn't bad like the movie. I have visited this place years ago before I started my blog and had the chicken sizzlers and from what I can remember, it was quite good.

Sun Moon and Potatoes offers a wide range of multiple cuisines such as Italian, Chinese, Mexican and European.  We ordered for Chicken Quesadillas, Cream Cheese Chicken Pasta and Cheese Garlic Bread.  Yes cheese is our high.

So first came in the Cheese Garlic Bread, which appeared and tasted as though it was homemade, not that it’s a bad thing but obviously you expect better when you’re dining outside. This definitely is something I would not call for the next time am here. This was priced for around Rs. 100

After which came in the Chicken Quesadillas, honestly am a huge fan of Quesadillas and any place I find this on the menu, I have to call for it. But unfortunately I was not having the best luck with them for the past few months, thankfully here at Sun Moon and Potatoes, the Quesadillas were delicious. They looked scrumptious and were absolutely mouthful. It was juicy and tad bit spicy and had fresh melted cheese flowing from it also luckily they weren't too many vegetables stuffed in it. This was priced for Rs.150

Lastly the waiter got us the Cream Cheese Pasta. I had an option between Veg/Chicken/ Seafood and Penne/ Spaghetti/ Fusilli. I opted for the Chicken Penne Cream Cheese Pasta.  It was extra creamy and had the right amount of cheese (or maybe I was almost dead with the over dosage of cheese) and unlike most other places had a good amount of shredded chicken pieces in it which were well cooked. This was priced at Rs. 225

So overall quite a decent meal, the chicken Quesadillas definitely stole the thunder.

Talking about the ambiance of the place, it’s a nice chilled out place, nothing fancy. A place apt for college kids to hang out and grab a meal.  However it’s a small place so they barely have 6 tables inside and around 2-3 outside.  They should maybe consider re-doing the place a little so that it could attract more people.  Also this youth dominated place could think through serving Beer/Wine.  

Nonetheless a good place with good food. Peaceful and Economical.

I would rate it a 3.5/5

Yo Go & Big Daddy

Hey Guys! Sorry for not updating my blog for over a month now, was busy with an event I was working on and post that was ill for almost 2 weeks, so yes was not having the best food possible to blog about. Hope you all however have been eating some real good food.

Now while I was sick there were 2 things I was really craving for, Mexican Food and Oreo Cheesecake, so as soon as I got slightly better I decided to grab myself all that I wanted.

Starting with the Oreo Cheesecake, I was actually craving for a pastry sort of thing but what I got to try was Oreo Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt which did sound really fancy to me initially but I was super thrilled to give it a try. A friend of mine had told me about this new yogurt place called Yo Go that had opened up at Andheri -  Lokhandwala, and my reaction instantly was Oh lord, another frozen yogurt place? But he seemed quite optimistic about this place due to the reviews he had heard, so well he did try it and adored it and was kind enough to get me the Oreo Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt. I was undeniably delighted on having it. It was natural in taste and the Oreo mixed in perfectly and it did not have the powdery after taste to it. It was priced at Rs. 140. I would rate it a 4.5/5 and without second thoughts entitle this to be the best frozen yogurt I have had till date. I’m looking forward on visiting the place by my own and trying out their other stuff. The place is also apparently known for their awesome cupcakes. Mmm!

During my research about Yo Go, I found a photo of their Lokhandwala store and completely loved their candy like interior and the cute pandas on their door knob etc. This got me all the more anxious about visiting the place soon.

Next coming to the Mexican Food, I usually visit Sammy Sosa at Oshiwara for the same but due to heavy showers could not go there and also had read about a new place called Big Daddy that had opened up in 7 Bungalows that served Mexican Cuisine so thought of giving it a try. But I had seen the place and there was absolutely NO WAY I could possibly dine their and eat, since the place is surrounded with garages and had the worst crowd surrounding it, so ordering was the only option.

We ordered for Grilled Chicken Quesadillas and Grilled Fish in Butter Garlic Sauce which is accompanied by Pesto Rice and Mashed Potato. But due to the monsoon season we were that seafood would not be offered, so we agreed on Grilled Chicken in Butter Garlic Sauce instead. It took around 45 minutes for delivery to Lokhandwala which was quite decent.

We started with the Quesadillas that were sadly not hot when it reached us but that could be pardoned because of the rains. The chicken was very well cooked and even the cheese savored fresh but it was slightly bland, they could have added a little more sauce to make the quesadillas a little juicier. So overall it was average and could have been lot better. It was priced only at Rs. 140 which I think is very reasonable. Overall I would rate it a 3/5.

After which we had the Chicken in Butter Garlic Sauce with Pesto Rice which somehow reminded us of Thai Green Chicken with Rice due to its green in colour appearance. Here again the chicken was very well cooked just like the chicken used in the quesadillas. The butter garlic gravy was enjoyable. They had also given the garlic sauce separately which tasted rather good. This was priced at Rs.180 which again was not too bad for the quantity they served. It could do well for around 2-3 people. I would rate it a 3.5/5

Overall Big Daddy was a decent experience. It evidently wasn't food that made me go WOW but not a bad option either. They have an outlet in Khar as well.
