Some places, people, things touch our heart and stay with us regardless of where we go, how old we become. Similarly, when it comes to food & restaurants, there is one place we always went with friends to during college for birthdays, days we bunked class, weekends, or just when we felt like indulging in good food. From that day to today, we always have Gaylord in Churchgate on our lists to visit to and explore more from their menu.
We were recently invited by the folks of Gaylord to try out the new additions to their menu. There was no doubt or looking back, and we headed to the restaurant for a fun & food filled Saturday with fellow blogger friends.
Value for Money: 4/5
Upon arrival we were served mocktail & cocktails, we decided to try them both- the watermelon and chilli guava mocktail was refreshing with a chilli jhatka which we enjoyed just as the beginning of our meal. Their mojito, Cosmo & martinis were very well prepared, too.
We started with the Dahi cheese Rolls, which was served in cute little bite-sized spoons. The cheese roll was topped with mayo, stuffed with Dahi & cheese filling, which was then deep fried for ultimate relishing. We felt the dish could have been a little better cooked in terms of the texture.
Next item on the new menu was the Veg Kulfi Kabab – Kabab served in Tequila Glass with sweet chili sauce on the bottom. This one was our favorite and the highlight of our meal at Gaylord. We couldn’t help but grab a couple servings of these Kababs.
The Apple & Prune Salad was filled with apples, mayo, prunes, peaches, cherries among others. This was very different from what we’ve had before and is recommended for those who love fruit salads as part of their meal.
For the Main Course we relished the Chatpata Aloo with assorted Indian breads; the garlic and olive naan paired very well with the Masaledar sabzi. Aloo is one of our favorite vegetables, and the chef at Gaylord has made it even more of a favorite vegetable with this sabzi. Definitely must try for those who love Masala, spicy & aloo.
The Veg Dum Biryani was smoking hot, well cooked and flavored (saffron). We love rice and biryani- hands down! This is one of our favorite Dum Biryani’s we’ve had in a long time. Must must try here!
Coming to the dessert course we had the Khumani Ka Meetha, where the main ingredient is dried apricots. This one is perfect for those who love Indian desserts.
Overall, we had a great afternoon with friends, food, & frolic at Gaylord, just like every time we have been to this iconic place. Post our meal, we stopped by the bakery to grab some goodies for our family, so all of us were happy that afternoon! 😉
Share your memories at Gaylord with us, as we are sure we’ve all been to this place once in our lives.
