Plus hundred points for the suburbs! Especially the Andheri bylanes that are now home to some of the best and most renowned food options the city has to offer. The latest entrant to add to the list is Mamagoto, which is one of my all time favorite restaurants in this city. I had blogged about my recent experience at their Kala Ghoda outlet, for a cocktail making session here. Excellent food, quirky interiors, and such convenient locations make them my favorites. Not to forget every time I eat there I imagine I’m in some Jackie Chan or Kung-Fu Panda film. So I was thrilled when they decided to launch in Andheri, so so close to where I work.
I was lucky enough to be given a sneak peek at the restaurant a day before it launched to the public. I was looking forward to a lovely dinner with good food, perfect ambiance and perfect company. And the evening did not disappoint.
I love the monthly thrill of anticipating my Fab Bag, seeing what others got, and finally opening mine to reveal its contents. Fab Bag is a monthly beauty bag, which consists of 3-4 sample or full-size beauty products. Read more about Fab Bag on www.fabbag.com
The April Fab Bag was themed ‘Girl On The Go’ and it was supposed to contain beauty essentials that a girl on the move may need. I never see any connection between what they give out and the theme of the bags each month. Nevertheless, this months bag was a beautiful red and black patterned pouch that I loved instantly.
Mamagoto in a short span since its launch in Mumbai last year has become everyone’s favorite go-to place for delicious Asian food combined with a quirky, relaxed vibe. The atmosphere is relaxed and kitsch, and coupled with their amazing food flavors it has fast become my favorite too! In a short span they have launched three branches in Mumbai- Bandra, Ghatkopar, Kala Ghoda- and are soon planning to launch in Andheri too. Happy news for Mamagoto fans such as me! Now I can get their Chiang Mai Train Station Noodles, Water Chestnut Spring Rolls, and Penang Curry close to work. Yaay!
So I know after my February Fab Bag debacle I had proudly announced that this was the last of my subscriptions and I would not sign up for one again. Come March, and I couldn’t help but see what the others got in their bags, and the rest is history. Renewed another 3 month subscription because let’s be honest, its a really good deal. Even if they’re not luxury beauty samples anymore, I just like getting a surprise home every month. It’s like a gift to me! 🙂 Read more about the Fab Bags on www.fabbag.com
The March Fab Bag was supposed to be the #FabWomen Special Bag on account of Woman’s Day in March.
I personally don’t know many people whose preferred choice of alcoholic beverage is gin. Most people are beer, whiskey or vodka drinkers on an average. But at the Beefeater Gin launch at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai all my misconceptions were cleared. That evening gin revealed itself as a versatile and widely loved alcoholic beverage for many.
