Hey guys! Firstly a huge thanks to everyone who commented on my post on Monday about restaurants equating their dishes to the amount of exercise require to burn them off. There were some great, thought-provoking responses and I think the general consensus is: Most people rather not know how many hours of walking each meal requires.
And speaking of restaurants, this week has been a yummy one….and the weekend hasn’t even kicked in! Especially during this time of the year when the heat is awn, my appreciation for salads infinitely multiplies! Am I right or am I right but how much better do salads taste when:
A) Someone else makes ‘em for you
B) There is no skimping on toppings
C) Both A & B
The Basilic might be one of my all-time favorite salads in Mumbai, courtesy of Suzette:
This bad boy has a whole lot going on including lettuce, French beans, fresh & sundried tomatoes, grilled chicken, feta, caramelized onions, grilled mushrooms & zucchini, basil and French dressing…now THAT’s what I call a salad! While Suzette’s organic buckwheat crepes are undoubtedly delicious, their salads are in a league of their own!
And you know what beats monstrous salads? Holidays which fall mid-week! I always thought Labor Day was only celebrated in the US but apparently it’s a public holiday in Mumbai too. If I wasn’t already excited for my trip to London in the summer, High Tea at The Table on Wednesday did the trick:
I tried their High Tea almost a year ago and it was even better this time around. We stuck with the vegetarian menu which included the following sandwich options:
- Cucumber & cream cheese
- Chevre & Kalamata olive spread
- Sundried tomato pesto
Between the cute finger sandwiches, pastries and warm scones with lemon curd, cream and jam, it had England written all over it. The only thing missing was a side of rain and truth be told, I can always do without it!
What’s the best meal you’ve eaten all your week?
What’s your favorite High Tea item?
