Burger Bros [Carter Road, Bandra]

It was a pleasant drive back to the ever-buzzing and ever changing street we all fondly call as – Carter’s. Every time we pass through this area there is a new eatery which pops up. This time around the change was in form of Burger Bros.

Making our way through the busy street, we grabbed the table near the entrance where empty glass bottles and plants were arranged on wooden shelves. The overall look of the place is edging towards unfinished with empty wooden frames hanging on the wall, bricks showing on the other wall and one-liners on another wall. They have a space to seat around 10-15 people with their outdoor seating available only in the evening. As we settled in, we heard a family shower the cheese burger with praises and we knew we made a good decision coming here!

Hungry as always we wasted little time in getting our hands on the food!

Milkshakes

Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake with Salted Caramel: A combination of grape jelly, salted caramel, vanilla ice cream, peanut butter and whipped cream. Very thick, intense flavours and not too sweet, it was very filling. It is ideal for those who are crazy about peanut butter.

Tiramisu Milkshake:Β This one was our favourite. Nice blend of vanilla ice cream, chocolate ganache, coffee and cocoa powder. Optimal flavour of coffee and chocolate. Good consistency and taste!

Chocolate Oreo Cookie Malt Milkshake: This is one of the few chocolate milkshakes on offer and we were glad to try this out. It was thick with crushed Oreo cookies and cream. Definitely on the sweeter side but worth a shot.

Cheesy Nachos:Β The nachos were crispy slathered with a good amount of molten cheddar cheese and herbed fried jalapenos. The jalapeno topping is by far the best option here and must not be missed out on. We also topped ours with fried onions.

Cheesy Homemade Handcut Fries🍟: The fries were thick, little on the softer side and topped with cheddar cheese.  Yet again we opted for herbed jalapeno toppings and loved it!

Burger Bros is a place for the meat lovers but the veg burgers are very good too. We opted forΒ Habibi BroΒ andΒ Carter’s Bro.

Habibi Bro: Delight for veggie lovers. Made with a super yummy falafel patty and garlic hummus, pickled beetroot pieces, fried jalapeno and molten American cheddar cheese oozing out from the assembly. The patty is crispy and a little on the drier side but yummy nevertheless. We especially recommend trying this one!

Carter’s Bro:Β This is more of the typical aloo tikki patty along with ranch mayo and American cheddar cheese. Not extraordinary but good.

1441 Pizzeria [Lokhandwala, Andheri]

Pizza is like the entire food pyramid! – Madeline Oles

If that is true, then 1441 Pizzeria is Egypt where this pyramid is placed.

But then, if you think about it, this is a problem. ‘Coz they were going for Naples and we called them Egypt. Those two places are not even close!

Tchk Tchk! Wrong quote.

Anyway, what we were trying to say is, 1441 Pizzeria brings a world of amazing pizzas for us! Quite a range of chef specials wood-fired pizzas and a fantastic array of toppings and cheese to choose from in case you are a fan of make your own pizza!

All this in a petite looking outlet from the outside. It is only when you step inside that bright green door that you realise why we were stressing on Naples above. Bricked walls with pictures depicting the history of pizza and reminiscence of the old Italian world.

1441 are the coordinates of the first ever pizza parlour in Naples, but we are sure you already knew that?

Nope?

Well, better late than never!

You can pick from the high tables and stools or the normal ones. The combination of red and black chairs with the lightly brown coloured tables is apt for the ambience and yellow lighting. A few tables and chairs are also extended outside in case you want to enjoy your pizza as you watch a crowd whizz past!

For the make your own pizza, they have around 30-40 topping options, multiple sauces and cheese varieties to choose from. A half and half or probably more divisions are possible in the make your own pizza. You can choose from single topping to multiple toppings (gourmet pizza) and both are priced differently. If you are feeling indecisive, ask the staff for help, they will be more than happy to. Along with pizza, they also have some kick-ass and much talked about starters, beverages and desserts.

Bottomless soda or what we know as unlimited soda with no strings attached, just help yourself. You are given an empty cup and you have to get it yourself everytime you need a refill. The staff is very friendly and helpful. After we settled down, we were taken for a tour to explain their entire menu and process, which they do for every new customer.

Here is what we hogged on:

PS: No drooling!

Smokey Dough Balls: Made with freshly kneaded dough and lots of chilli flakes, oregano and of course cheese, these bite-sized balls are delicious! They were served with a mustard dip and a mild spicy jalapeno yoghurt dip.

Krish Pizza – The pizza is named after the owner and was one of the specials that day. The pizza base was prepared right in front of us and was topped with Mama’s sauce, mozzarella cheese, jalapenos and caramelised onions and then baked in their wood fired oven. Sun-dried tomatoes and basil were then added. The pizza was smokey and had a combination of sweet-tangy flavours owing to the caramelised onions and base sauce.

Paneer Tikka Pizza – Thin crusted delight with lots of paneer, capsicum and onions and a tangy sauce.Loved it!

We also tried pizzas from their Cheese Festival menu –

Stracciatella Pizza – Thin crusted base, topped with and Italian sauce and lots of cream. On top were tomatoes and basil and the start –Stracciatella cheese! Small shreds of this cheese and Parmesan made this one a sinfully delicious option. The combination of cream, tomatoes and black pepper was delicious! Loved it! This is a must try!

Camembert and Blue Cheese Pizza – This pizza is cheese heaven! Mozzarella, Camembert cheese and blue cheese! Although we know that blue cheese is significantly different from feta cheese, we felt the same tang and creamy texture in this cheese. It was scrumptious! Another must try!

Since we were here for their 1st birthday party and we were treated to Nutella Pizza and Chocolate Calzones made for the birthday celebrations! *Happy Dance*

Thin crusted base with a spread of Nutella and an option of topping! Strawberry, marshmallows and bananas – what is not to love!

The chocolate calzones are a dessert version of the smokey dough balls. Filled with chocolate and dusted with lots of sugar, this is sinister, to say the least!

We also sipped on Lychee Lemonade and Masala Lemonade both of which were refreshing.

Overall Experience: Pizzalicious! The service is prompt and friendly but the place is a little on the higher side cost-wise.
