An Afternoon at Soda Bottle Opener Wala


  The beauty of Parsi Cuisine lies in its simplicity. The eclectic mix of Indian & Iranian flavours, blend of mild sweetness and spiciness, an occasional surprise of tartness , makes it interesting.

Soda Bottle Opener Wala  (SBOW) is just the place for this.

A place that not just offers this easy-on-the-palate delicious parsi delicacies but also lets you soak in a bit of a quirkiness, a little mad yet, relaxed and laid back moments of a typical Irani Cafe. The place has a character that can seen in the food, the decor , the way the food is presented , the serving staff etc. Something that demands to be experienced.

Having been around for a while, SBOW has just introduced a new menu. Their in-house chefs – the talented Chef Danish & Chef Manbeer have tried to bring in the experience of the street food, popular food legends and food re-inventions and put their culinary spin on it and devised this new Menu.

A bunch of us got an opportunity to try out a few of those new set of dishes and cocktails.

Thank you team SBOW for having us over!

Here is a glimpse, in the form of a photo journey, of what the new menu has to offer:

Adu-Tedhu Babycorn fry with Cheese sauce

The quintessential Parsi .. Kheema Khari Par Eedu ( Egg on Mince)

More Cocktails
The incredibly good Tarela Rainbow Trout

A paused moment

Making a coming back after almost a month ( again! )

The last time that happened, I bounced back with something sweet , but this time around it is fish! Special – because all this while the recipes in my blog have been vegetarian. I love fish ( and this should be a great beginning for my blog.)

There is something amazing about fruits that need to be peeled to be eaten. The way I look at it is that there is always something incredible waiting to be discovered! We all have our favorites , for me the most ‘apeeling’ fruit has always been Bananas. It has never ever ever disappointed me with its delicious awesomeness.
