Friday Friday, gotta get down on Friday.

Okay I’m most likely not going to have anyone reading this post thanks to my obnoxious post title, but what the heck.

Last Saturday we kept shifting from Citrus to Jughead’s at Veera Desai back and forth and finally landed up at Thank God It’s Friday – Infiniti Mall (Andheri)

So a friend and I decided to grab a light meal at TGIF and thought of skipping appetizers and calling directly for a main course each. We looked through their wide selection of food on their menu cards and honestly were rather confused as almost everything sounded fancy. After much pondering, we ended up ordering for a Sizzling Chicken and Cheese and the Chicken Chimichanga.

There was also a football match that my friend wanted to watch so we requested them to change the channel on their TV, instead they rolled down their big screen and put on the match for us, so much win J

Coming back to the food, the Sizzling Chicken and Cheese was like a dream dish for a cheese lover like me. However this isn't advisable for someone looking to lose weight. This is basically a garlic marinated chicken breast over melted Colby and Jack cheese served alongside their special melted cheese mashed potatoes. The chicken was very well cooked and had the right amount of flavor in it. This turned out to be an absolute treat.

Moving on to our next dish, that is the Chicken Chimichanga, this is a flour tortilla filled with diced chicken breast, green chilies and cheese. It is topped with Ranchero sauce and melted Monterrey Jack and Colby cheese. It is served with sour cream, black lentils and rice. Just by reading the description, we were all excited and so we were really looking forward to this and thankfully this did not disappoint us either. Similar to the Sizzling Chicken and Cheese, even this was an overload of cheese, not as much but quite a bit. The tortillas were crispy and the chicken was slightly spicy which was in its favor. The rice on the under hand was slightly bland, but we chose to ignore that since we were overwhelmed with what we had already. Also we were really full, thanks to their good quantity.

By now it’s not hard to judge that we loved the food, but apart from that we also loved how friendly the staff here was and their DJ who played really good music while we enjoyed our meal.

The ambiance of the place is also quite good, it’s fun and young. They have a separate bar area too.

However the prices are tad bit expensive. We spent almost Rs. 1200 (Inclusive of Tax) for these two dishes.

Lastly we also were asked to fill some online feedback form which would avail us to a Rs.500 off on our next visit in the same month, but sadly I misplaced the coupon L

Overall it was a great experience, shall visit the place soon to try out their other interesting dishes.

Ending 2012 in Goa

Hey Everyone, wishing you all a very Happy New Year, hope you all enjoyed the festive season and cherished on some brilliant food because I sure did thanks to my Goa trip.

Before I start with anything else, let me tell you all how I absolutely love Goa, this place never seems to disappoint. It’s a completely different atmosphere and I couldn't be happier about starting 2013 in Goa.

Coming to the food, honestly almost everything I ate in every meal is worth talking about, but I shall high light on a few things I totally loved.

One just can’t complete a Goa trip without visiting Infantaria ( located on the Baga – Calanguate road) for breakfast/ lunch. Be that for their amazing milkshakes, huge variety of food, desserts or their amazing deals on beer and lots more while your dining with the best crowd in Goa.

Photos of three of my favorite dishes at Infantaria.

I don't have photos of the Cheesecake and Dutch Truffle Milkshake, but YOU have to try it, its beyond awesome.

Oh also don’t forget to munch on the Prawn Rissois from their bakery section while you wait for a table at Infantaria, since waiting here is quite common, but let that not dishearten you since it’s totally worth the wait.

Post sunburn when the traffic at Candolim had got slightly better we decided to go that side and visited a place called Stone House where we had something called Prawn Pappadum which is basically fried papad stuffed with prawns. Also had the bacon and mussels spaghetti which was a good treat to the stomach.

Apart from all that since we were staying at Baga, we managed to visit Brittos for breakfast which is another must when you are at Goa, but sadly there were no Pancakes which is what we were actually looking forward to. However we had the Extra Cheese Omlette and the English breakfast platter which were terrific.

And lastly if you love Prawns Kohliwada, you have to try this at the Anthonies Shack at Baga.

As I wrote about all this and went through the photos my mouth started to water and my stomach began to make funny noises, because that’s how amazing the food in this place is, I can’t wait to go back.
