Innovation at its best. Vada Pao mates with Samosa. Result? Jumbosa a rectangular-shaped snack with a filling of potato, peas and masala. The quintessential symbol of the streets of Mumbai is blast-chilled and cooked in stainless-steel utensils with gloved hands. In short, Vada Pao is becoming Jumbo King. This jumbo-sized success story began in mid-2001 and today, over forty bright yellow and orange self-serve, fast-food branches span the city. Kudos to the enterprising Gupta couple for transforming the way Vada Pao is served in Mumbai. Mumbai's crowning street snack is dressed up with Butter, Chhole, Schezwan and Cheese (mix 'n' match those flavours) in Regular, Brown and Grilled variations. Pair it with regular Lassi (soft drinks as well), with all of the hygiene! I'll take the original Vada Pao from Jumbo King any day. When you want that fatafat break, look for a branch near you and happy snacking!

I am always pleasantly surprised at the consistency with which this 13-year-old contemporary, warm and elegant 6,000sq ft restaurant continues to deliver its pan-Asian fare. A huge choice of over a 100 dishes, Chef Ying Zhang’s unlimited Dim Sum Lunches, traditional Korean Set Lunches, Yakitori and Kushiyaki grills and Teppanyaki bar keep it rocking. The dynamic Executive Chef Joy Bhattacharya keeps injecting excitement by introducing new dishes and set meals from Burma, China, Vietnam, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan. My personal old favourites remain the fact that you can choose your own live seafood from the Austramarine tank. The luscious Silken Tofu, tangy Raw Mango Salad, tasty Wok-fried Veggies in Black Pepper Sauce and Steamed Garupa with Lemon Chilli remain as good as ever. Tap Tim Krob (the delightfully surprising must try Water Chestnuts in Coconut Milk) makes for a fitting ending. Hormok Phak is their signature vegetarian dish (vegetables with Thai Curry and Coconut steamed in a coconut shell).

Note: Celebrate at the Teppanyaki table (7-course Set Menu `2,550), Dim Sum Lunch: `1,225, Korean Set Menu: `1,600 are all recommended.

PS: Ask the waiters about the charming fiction spun around India Jones (this being the home of the globetrotting gourmet; library, refrigerator, open kitchen, artefacts, et al.).
