Bombay Bread Bar: Another unique contemporary Indian affair

This was a fun dinner. At the restaurant that replaced a Parsi-focused, vegetarian options lacking, Paowalla (guy who has bread), The Bombay Bread Bar is a refreshing twist on urban and contemporary Indian food. Definitely a revisit / must-go restaurant near SoHo’s famous shopping area.

Quattro: Avant-garde vegetarian in Bombay

Quattro in Bombay should be an annual pilgrimage The food is that good. The presentation is spectacular. Nothing else matters.

Colorful bowl of fries

Fries by themselves are great. Fries as a side to burgers are great. Fries in a bowl with toppings are great. So Bareburger’s adaptation of Pototapia’s concept is great too. Colorful peppers, spicy jalape├▒os, cheese and guac as toppings, these fries looked exciting & were good to munch on while we waited for our burgers.

Chipotle for French Fries – Potatopia
