So they have an entire menu themed based on movies and I was pretty impressed with the innovation of the names used.
Also secondly what I liked was the menu being so widespread. They had a huge amount of starters, burgers, soups, salads, pasta, Chinese dishes, chaat, Indian cuisine.
Let’s start with Chakna
We tried Ulta Punjab
Crisp Rumali + Masala Papad Mix . I liked this but would have liked more masala in butter to it.
They had this interesting section to the menu called “Back in time” which had dishes like
Irani & co
Hostel ka maggi
Andas apna apna
We tried Kuchi bhi
Hitchki take on vada Pav which had dabeli masala buttered Pav . I like the combination of the…

Recipe: Banana Pecan Crumb Muffins By //Love and Olive Oil #AceFoodDesk reports


#AceFoodNews – Oct.13: Tender, fluffy banana muffins studded with chopped pecans and topped with a crunchy crumbly streusel (since we’re all in agreement that the tops are the best part anyway, why not make them even better with a crumb topping!)……………If you’re looking for a new way to use up those over-ripe bananas taunting you on the counter, look no further than these banana pecan muffins! They’re tender and sweet and satisfyingly crunchy, like a cross between banana bread and coffee cake. In other words, the perfect way to start your day #AceFoodDesk reports Banana Nut Muffins with Crumb Streusel Topping Recipe

Ripe bananas are a constant battle around here, so I’m always throwing together a batch of banana bread so as not to let them go to waste: But rather than torture you with yet another banana bread recipe (I’ve got quite a few of them, actually, including my all time favorite double chocolate banana bread) I decided to do a banana muffin instead.

What a concept!

But I wasn’t satisfied with a muffin-ified version of my banana bread. No, my muffins would be stellar, studded with chopped pecans (you should be proud of me for using nuts here rather than my default chocolate chips… because breakfast.) and finished with a crunchy streusel topping.

Because, let’s be honest… a muffin without a crumb topping isn’t even worth making.

Get the Recipe: Banana Pecan Crumb Muffins

I originally tweaked my buttermilk crumb cupcake recipe to incorporate the ripe bananas, and while it was a good starting point, I found the batter a bit too delicate to support the weight of the crumb (leading to delicious, but embarrassingly sunken muffins). A bit more flour and a little less butter seemed to solve that problem, easily enough, and this recipe is the result!

Why are those cupcakes and these are muffins?

Let’s see. Well, the fruit here, for one thing, makes them most definitely muffins. Also see: lack of chocolate chips (not that I have anything against chocolate chips for breakfast, but it makes the definition in this case a lot easier). No frosting, no dusting of powdered sugar, no mound of fluffy buttercream.

Bubble Tea Craze


Musings

One downside of living in a tropical country is its hot and humid climate which makes life really uncomfortable. To cool down we turn to cold refreshments.

One craze that stayed until now is the bubble tea. No one knows who really invented it but Taiwan reinvented it during the 1980’s. Bubble tea shops sprouted like mushrooms here since we love a cool refreshing drink.

There are many theories as to why it is called bubble tea. One theory is bubbles form when the drink is shaken up. Another one is because of the tapioca pearls that sits at the bottom. Those black pearls are addictive because there’s something in their chewiness.

But bubble tea doesn’t always have bubbles and tea in it. Bubbles usually formed when it has milk in it. The variety that has no lace of tea in it is the fruit flavoured juice with the jelly…

Report: Huge Reduction in Meat-Eating ‘Essential’ To Avoid Climate Breakdown #AceFoodDesk reports


#AceFoodNews – Oct.11: Huge reductions in meat-eating are essential to avoid dangerous climate change, according to the most comprehensive analysis yet of the food system’s impact on the environment. From a report: In western countries, beef consumption needs to fall by 90% and be replaced by five times more beans and pulses #AceFoodDesk reports

The research [PDF] also finds that enormous changes to farming are needed to avoid destroying the planet’s ability to feed the 10 billion people expected to be on the planet in a few decades. Food production already causes great damage to the environment, via greenhouse gases from livestock, deforestation and water shortages from farming, and vast ocean dead zones from agricultural pollution.

But without action, its impact will get far worse as the world population rises by 2.3 billion people by 2050 and global income triples, enabling more people to eat meat-rich western diets

The Powai outlet is more like an all day place with modern ambience and gives you best of both worlds – Indigo Deli and Neel. You can order from what you like.

Umraan Regional, little traditional place in Bandra


theglocaljournal

20180712005753_IMG_3834

Umraan Regional is a small restaurant in the by lanes of Bandra and right off the bat we can tell you it has a very homely vibe. Their menu is curated by taking dishes made by Indian mother’s from all over the country. From their spicy chettinad paneer to their fluffy parathas, this place is bound to bring back memories of your childhood.

First off, We tried the cheese corn samosas and they were heavenly. Hot, crisp and served with a mint and hung curd dip, the samosas made for a brilliant starter.

20180712005440_IMG_3830

Along with the samosas we ordered the aloo sukha which did taste pretty good as well.

20180712005253_IMG_3826

Moving on to the main course, we tried the paneer burjhi paired with the fluffy garlic paratha. The portions were very generous and enough for two. For desert we tried the lal gulla which was a red velvet rasgulla. At first…

(BRITAIN) An independent coffee chain is believed to be the first in the UK to ban the sale of hot drinks in disposable cups, as from June:01: Boston Tea Party, which has 21 branches around England, will only sell hot drinks in reusable cups: Customers must either bring their own mug, buy one in store or pay a deposit on one they can return to any branch #AceFoodDesk reports


#AceFoodNews – Apr.24: Supermarket giant Waitrose has made a similar pledge to stop using disposable cups by autumn while Costa Coffee has vowed to improve on recycling: Boston Tea Party owner Sam Roberts said that to carry on handing out 300,000 disposable cups a year was “senseless” #AceFoodDesk reports

It is estimated that more than two billion disposable coffee cups are used each year in the UK, with fewer than 1% being recycled: The new plan for takeaway hot drinks, which account for £1m of the company’s annual £19.8m turnover, is the chain’s second attempt to reduce waste………….Customers were previously offered a 25p discount on drinks if they brought their own cup, but only 2.8% of people took up the offer.

Under the new scheme, customers who forget their reusable cup can buy one in store for between £4.25 and £4.75. Alternatively, they can pay a deposit on a loan cup and return it when finished: While paper cups can be recycled at specialist plants, they are not suitable for recycling with other paper and cardboard products because they contain a plastic lining.

Other UK coffee chains have also announced plans to cut waste. Costa, for example, has vowed to recycle as many cups as it puts into the market by 2020 – but Mr Roberts does not believe such plans are effective.

“Lots of coffee chains are making pledges about how they plan to tackle cup waste in the future,” he said, “but theirs is a future which is too far away.

“We want to demonstrate to other operators that to make a difference, big change is needed.

“We will make this work and we’ll share details of how we’ve done it with anyone who wants our help to do the same.”

Environmental charity Friends of the Earth, which campaigns on the issue, said it was encouraged that retailers were taking steps to reduce waste, but argued the government needed to do more to help solve the problem.

“We welcome steps being taken by coffee shops to decrease the amount of plastic pollution they produce,” a spokesman said.

“However, it’s the UK government which looks like it could use a caffeine kick for its plastic strategy.”

The charity insists that the only long-term solution to the plastic pollution is “a complete phase-out of all but the most essential plastics”.
