Breakfast on the go – Food Fuel 2.0, Baner – Double the choice! — Reviewed!

We all are aware about how important it is to kick start your mornings with healthy yet scrumptious breakfast! The habit of having breakfast sets the tone for the day and gives the much needed energy. Let me admit how many of us actually prepare the gourmet breakfast daily? Isn't it limited to butter-toast, bowl of cereals-muesli or a granola bar on the run.

We all want the hot, fresh breakfast in the bed or on the table while we are getting ready. Problem? Busy Mornings! We hardly can spare a minute in the super busy morning schedule but also we want hearty breakfast. When life is busy, Food Fuel is a saver. That's the place serving hot and fresh breakfasts since 6 in the mornings. Yes!! Now, you can sleep peacefully for few more minutes as there is no hassle to prepare your favourite plate of goodness.

I saw the menu of Food Fuel, and trust me one can order a box per day and still you will get a different scrumptious dish everyday atleast for a month! Currently they are having two kitchens — Vadgaon Sheri and the other is in Baner. I have already written about the first experience at Food Fuel. This time I wanted to try something new as the menu is multi-folded expanded since my first order, 2 years back. My On-the-go breakfast options includes...
  • Royal Sindh Combo Box
  • Paneer Parantha 
  • Potato Grilled Sandwich
  • Cauliflower Parantha
  • Corn and Cheese Rolls
  • Ragda Patties Chit Chaat Box
A complete meal in itself, the Royal Sindh Combo Box (Rs.249) consists of authentic sindhi dishes – Dal Pakwan, Koki, Bowl of Chana Dal, Tamarind Chutney, onion, pickles and dry-fruits. Dal Pakwan was super yum as it had balanced flavours. Koki on the other hand could have tasted better when eaten hot. Packed neatly you can just dunk the crispy pakwans into protein packed chana dal. Super yum!
Second box was the Paneer Parantha Slim Box (Rs.199) which had 8 quarters of loaded paranthas with yoghurt, pickle and salad. You need to eat it hot to taste the awesomeness. The spices were balanced and the best part yoghurt was fresh and not tangy.

Sandwiches are my favourite so had to order Potato Grilled Sandwich Box (Rs.179) which had 3 layered multi-grain sandwich grilled to perfection accompanied with ketchup, bowl of fruits, tea and dry-fruits. I loved their veg sandwich more.

I had ordered Caesar Salad but was served Cauliflower/Gobi parantha (Rs.199) instead . Nevertheless, it was good but not at par with the other dishes served. For me, the parantha was thick and had little flavour to the filling. It too was served with curs, pickle and salad. Can be missed!

Next were the Corn and Cheese Rolls (Rs.179). Two wheat flatbreads were rolled with corn, cheese and potato filling. I wish it had more of cheese though taste was good. This box too had small bowl of fresh fruits, coffee and a ketchup sachet.

Ragda Patties Chit Chaat Box (Rs.159). I totally recommend this box of taste. 4 roasted patties are served with ragda, onion, chutney. Super yummy and fresh. The tangy, sweet, spicy taste of the dish was mind-blowing. A must have!

With such an amazing menu, there are certain things which need additional attention...
  • Opening of the small zip lock bags for ketchups and chutneys are a struggle.
  • Areas of delivery need to be expanded.
Overall, a nice experience. You can call or online order for your breakfasts or brunch cravings. Grab your meal boxes while on the go. Certainly a good choice for quick meal.

Salad Grills – hits the right chord of taste and nutrition! — Reviewed!

For me, 'Salad Grills' is the synonym to the authentic tossed salads and smoothies. They have never disappointed me in the terms of food, service or packaging. In case you want to read my first experience with the Salad Grills. I appreciate their long-term vision of popularizing "Salad Culture" across India and with such lovely dishes on the menu, I'm sure Salad Grills are going to make it soon.

Positive Side:
  • Fresh Home made dressings, sauces and dips
  • Enticing Toppings
  • Wholesome Meal with a balance of Carbs, Proteins
  • Freshly used ingredients
  • Prompt delivery
  • Delicious options
Not so Positive Side:
  • Limited delivery area
This time, I tried the following...
  • Roasted Mushrooms Pasta Salad (Rs.210) (4.5/5)
  • Farmers County (Rs.200) (4/5)

How can Mushrooms go wrong in combination with anything especially Pasta. Black eye beans, watermelon, cherry tomato, sweet corn, golden raisins, leeks, black olives, roasted sunflower seeds, mixed lettuce with roasted mushrooms and penne was a perfect, healthy balanced combination for a hearty wholesome meal. Although it is usually served with Balsamic Style Vinaigrette but I was served German Yoghurt dressing which was thick, sweet with lots of yumminess. A must try! Fresh Bread sticks adds the crunch to the salad.

Next was the Farmers County with the Balsamic Date Vinaigrette. This salad meal box was the medley of colors and nutrition with Moroccan grilled tofu, tomato, apples, bell pepper, cucumber, black olives, roasted flaxseeds, mixed lettuce. A power-packed bowl of health. Not to forget the vinaigrette – sweet, salty, tangy. A total burst of flavour in your mouth. I can say Salad Grills have one of the best salad dressings.

Trust me, whenever you crave for some healthy, nutritious, delicious, crunchy salads go for Salad Grills! :)
