The Chocolate Heaven, Vile Parle (W) – Review

Roochster

So, this was one of those random, unplanned visits. Actually that’s not new, considering it’s me. So yeah, after snacking at Ice n Rolls at Vile Parle, my friend and I decided to go have some dessert at The Chocolate Heaven. Was it as heavenly as it sounds? You’re just about to find out!

Food– Ok so they have some really cool desserts here. Pastries, chocolates, sundaes, waffles, pancakes, shakes, coffees, teas, cold drinks, chocolate fondues are just among the desserts and drinks. They also have pizzas, sandwiches, pasta and garlic bread. Phew! Now, since we’d already eaten food, we decided to share a Nutella Waffle (2 pieces) which came with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The waffle was nice and thick but the sauce on top was not the original Nutella sauce. I could make out from the taste. It was definitely fake Nutella sauce and didn’t taste that good and more so because it was too thin. It could have been a big hit otherwise! For sure! They also had these Chocolate shots which fascinated me and so I decided to try one with Hazelnut syrup. It came in a small shot glass and trust me it was incredibly sinful. I actually had it as a shot and loved it! I recommend that for sure! Also, my aunt said that their pizzas are superb so I’ll probably try them the next time I’m there.

Ambience– Located at Vile Parle west, opposite Bhaidas hall and next to NMIMS, The Chocolate Heaven is a sweet cafe with an outdoor and an indoor section. It’s the perfect hang out for all the college students who want to get out for a quick bite. They’ve got some really awesome quotes on the walls which every chocoholic will agree with.

Service– They’re nice and pretty quick and efficient with their service.

Prices– The Nutella waffle with ice cream was for Rs. 149 and the Chocolate shot was for Rs. 45. The chocolate shot is totally worth it, the Nutella waffle can do with some improvement (Original Nutella sauce). With taxes, the bill came up to Rs. 216 which is decent for what we had.

Verdict– The Chocolate Heaven is here to stay with reasonable rates and good food on their menu. Chocolate shots are a must have! Go try!

Rating– 3.5/5

Ice n Rolls, Vile Parle (w) – Review

Roochster

Most “burbies” from Mumbai would be well aware of this place located near Mithibai college. It’s new for townies since it’s not your typical “restaurant” or “café”. I was looking forward to trying out Ice n Rolls ever since I heard you get pasta and pizza there… So here’s what I thought of the place.  Read on!

Food– Ice n Rolls is your one stop shop for all kinds of junk food (Veg)! Pizzas, pastas, rolls, sandwiches, salads, nachos, soya protein stuff, juices, milkshakes, desserts floats and what not!  When I went to eat there, I asked Mr. Pandey (who sits there) to suggest what I should eat since it was my first visit. So, keeping in mind his suggestion I tried the Veg Blast pizza and chocolate milkshake. Yes, I ate alone because I was in Juhu for work and was quite hungry after that. So the “Veg Blast” pizza was a normal veg pizza with onion, capsicum, tomatoes, pizza sauce and cheese. It was decent. Very filling! The chocolate milkshake which is also their specialty was yum! It’s better than Cad B (for those who know what Cad B is)! I’m thinking I’ll try more stuff when I go there next. The pasta is supposed to be good too.

Ambience– Let me tell you it’s not a restaurant or a café. It’s like a roadside thing but not a roadside thing… you know what I mean? See the picture, you’ll get it. It is located at Vile Parle west, bang opposite Bhaidas hall or the famous Mithibai college. They don’t have chairs and tables but the good part is that its open 24/7. Yup! So now you know that in case you’re planning to go clubbing in that side of town, you should keep Ice n Rolls in mind if you’re hungry.

Service– Not much to say. Its fast food. They get it as fast as possible.

Prices– The prices are decent. Certain items on the menu are overpriced. Their pizzas start at Rs. 70 and their pastas at Rs.100. Their rolls start at Rs. 40 and desserts at Rs. 80. I didn’t think their Chocolate milkshake was worth 80 bucks. So for a college student to eat there everyday, it would get expensive but otherwise it’s good.

Verdict– Late night eatery, their chocolate milkshake and the variety on the menu are reasons enough for me to go eat at this place again. Me thinks you should try it too.

Rating– 3.5/5
