#GoCheeseTastingEvent

Roochster

I remember going to the Go Cheese factory in Pune some months ago. I had come back with this huge bag full of cheese goodies and trust me; it was all over in like a week! So when I was invited for the #GoCheeseTastingEvent at #BlueFrog, Lower Parel, I was super excited, more so because Superchef Ranveer Brar was going to be there to enlighten us about the various cheeses from India’s very own brand- GO.

 

GO Cheeeeese! At the entrance of Blue Frog, Lower Parel, a little late, excited much.

Brewer’s Café, Andheri (West)- Review

Roochster

It was a random plan, as usual. I wanted to try out a new place and it was a close friend’s birthday so we decided to go to Brewer’s Café in the afternoon to chill till dinner.

Food– Brewer’s Café serves your typical café food. Sandwiches, pizza, pasta, coffees, granitas, slushes, tea and the like. The reason I chose this place over the usual CCD, Barista, Candies and Costa Coffee was because this place had more food on the menu! We were 3 of us and ordered a Chopped Veg Cheese sandwich which was ok…the cheese wasn’t enough and overall, I wasn’t satisfied. Then I called for a Chocolate Granita which I wont recommend cause it was not chocolaty and tasted like Bournvita. My friends called for a Choco Frappe, Americano and Cheesy Fries. The coffees were good but the cheesy fries were again not cheesy enough and the cheese was quite dry. So overall, the food was very ok! I wanted to try out their pizza but unfortunately it wasn’t available!

Ambience– Located near Mega Mall and 5 Spice at Oshiwara, this sweet little café is a great place to hang out. We had gone in the afternoon and so sat inside, in the air conditioned section; but there’s an outside section too which is nice in the evenings! You can chill there for a long time and relax with your coffee. The entire atmosphere there is quite chilled out.

Service– The service is decent. The guys working there are pretty sweet and don’t take too long to get your food. They even allow you to charge your phone.

Prices– Normal café prices but not as expensive as Costa Coffee or Coffee Bean. I’d say its value for money only if the food is made better but otherwise, I think you can do with a regular coffee or something. My sandwich was for Rs.70 and the Chocolate Granita was again approximately at the same cost. The Americano was around Rs. 50 which is decent. So after having 2 Americanos, 1 Chocolate Granita, 1 Choco Frappe, 1 Sandwich, 1 Cheesy Fries and 2 bottles of Mineral water, our total bill summed up to Rs. 303 which is not bad at all!

Verdict– The place is chilled out, especially outside and maybe the food isn’t that great but it’s not bad either. I wouldn’t say it’s a place you have to try but if you stay at Andheri or close by, you could go and try out Brewer’s Café just to hang out with your buddies.

Rating– 3/5
