Review : Birdsong – The organic Cafe

“Let’s visit that organic cafe!” are the words of my friend who was keen to try this place, but the funny part was we just knew only so much about it! So on doing some “Zomatoing” we find out the place and we were all excited to visit this place coz we are a bunch of health freaks with a soul of foodie;)

D-day arrived and we finally landed at Bandra, the hub of all the good life, but wait where is this cafe? so this was one of those days where google maps said arrived on location and yet I couldn’t locate the cafe. From opening maps , I finally stuck to opening mouth! And yes I succeeded in finding it. The place is tucked in a bylane opp Mammagato, a small path filled with Graffiti takes you to this Rustic place .

The interiors have got a raw and fresh appeal which spells minimalism. Its got a quaint feel and as you enter you see a showcase with in house bakes and cookie jars. So I had already made up my mind about sampling some. So we ordered “the Green detox smoothie”, “Roast Chicken and toasted sesame” ,”Warm roasted vegetables and feta salad” and Finally my most awaited “Gooey chocolate cake”.

The Green smoothie was refreshing with the right consistency and flavour. It was perfect for the likes of people who are on a DIET! The salads came in next, and for the first time , I found the vegetarian salad more tasty than my chicken one. The warm vegetable salad gets a ‘thumbs up’. The zucchini was grilled to perfection with drizzle of olive oil. Again a very healthy choice! And then the Dessert was a Killer! I loved the gooey chocolate cake coz it had a very succulent sweetness of dates which came in with every bite .A must try for those who are a fan of natural source of sugar.

All in all this place got me disappointed with its location and interiors, and the name got me interested in knowing about thier organic farm but they are 70% organic, so I skipped ordering the coffee. But the “Vegie salad” and off course the “Cake” took away all the may I say “Datey points”!

Must Visit if you are on a strict diet and want to still chill in Bandra. Tough Decision but we made one 🙂

‘As I dwell in my shell ‘

I am extremely sorry for not being as regular! I guess I had my own short comings and I m sure you will be willing to forgive me for the same! I am just as caught up as everyone is, but now I have made a promise to myself to make it a point to blog once a month and catch up as often as possible.

Last month was all about “the Yoga International day” and so much about it that I am sure you all must be still hungover! But you know what, the real essence of Yog lies in the people who hardly need an introduction because its engraved so deep within that one look at them and you can’t help but get inspired.

In a world where we are suffering because of our wrong lifestyle choices, ailments are a definite outcome but “Yoga has the answers for its prevention and cure”. So when I got an opportunity to attend a seminar where Doctors and Yoga experts from around the country had gathered to put forward thier line of yogic treatment I just couldn’t miss it. These are the people who practice yog to cure ailments, the amount of research and experience they have is only believable after you encounter them. 

As these experts spoke for themselves and thier school of thoughts, they also supported one anothers views for there was one thread that connected them all, and that was “Yog”. It helped in looking at yoga from not only a perspective of health and fitness but “a shift in the way of living”. Its not just the body but a practise of “Complete awareness” of the mind and soul as I put it in their own words. 

The location of the venue was so serene that a field of positivity was around. The food that was given was also “sattvik” and therefore a feeling of calm had set in. 

As we came towards the end of the event, we knew we were going to return with a happy but a heavy heart as the place was soo inviting. It’s hard to not fall an impact after meeting so many yogis in person and to sum it all up they all said “Make Yoga a way of Life!”.
