Bombay Chronicles: Woodside Inn

Address: Wodehouse Road, Opposite Regal Cinema, Colaba, Mumbai

Woodside Inn is now one of my favourite places in Mumbai. Its quiet, elegant, and has excellent food and alcohol. A little on the pricey side, but totally worth every penny, if you want to make those few hours with someone, special :)

(above) Potato Skins with Wasabi Mayo
Crisp potato skins, seasoned perfectly, with wasabi mayo, the most fitting accompaniment for the flavours to burst in your mouth.

(above) Double Cheddar Beef Burger
Served with fries, cole slaw, and the burger is ordered on multigrain bread. This was incredible - I love the presentation, and the beef was cooked perfectly. The burger was not overwhelmingly large, if there ever was a classier way to serve a regular beef burger, this is it.


(above) Eggs Benedict
Served with candy bacon and seasoned potatoes. Look at the way the egg broke open when I put my fork to it.. That is what makes my heart sing. It was tear-inducingly-beautiful. Enough said. :D

(above) Chocolate balls with Cinnamon Custard
After all that incredible food, we were really not excited by any of the desserts on offer, till the waiter suggested we try the monthly special - Chocolate, cinnamon, custard. I didn't know what to expect, and then we saw this. Fried chocolate, dusted with cinnamon, served on the slightest bit of custard and whipped cream, so beautifully presented with orange rind and mint leaves. Individually, the components are quite plain and boring, but everything came together in such a beautiful dessert.. Yum.
