Food Diaries: Part 1

It has been a while since I posted on the blog, got caught up with life in general and office in particular. (Sucks, I know!) However, we at the Part Time Cook are coming up with a series of posts which is titled the food diaries (It was a tussle between ‘Food Diaries’ and ‘What Am I Eating’ and the latter sounds kind of Instagram-ish! :D) The Food Diaries series is all about giving a quick round up of the many places I end up eating at and what I love and like at the place. Starting off the Food Diaries Journey is my trusted old restaurant, Pot Pourri.

For people who know me, they know that Pot Pourri in Vashi is one of my regular joints. They have recently renovated both their interiors as well as their menu ( And their prices too!)

However, when we stepped in for a really late night dinner this Friday, the place did not disappoint.

Here is a quick glance at what we ate:

All American Pizza:

I love their ultra thin crusts, and their brilliant use of flavors. This pizza is a new addition to their menu and I must say it is already one of my favorites on their menu! Love the generous use of barbecue sauce, tender chicken and topped with sour cream to balance the flavor.

Am I raving? YES. This pizza deserves my love.

Chicken Stroganoff:

Their version of the chicken stroganoff is light, and packed with flavor and is one of my go to dishes at the place.

We added a couple of beers to the mix and it resulted in three very happy people and the happy hours from 11:30-12:30 with a 50% off on alcohol definitely added to the happy part!

It was a really good start to a long weekend and we have some more interesting looking things coming up! We will soon have our first guest blogger, who is going to give us his secret recipe for this gorgeous ‘Spiced peach, raspberry and almond layer cake’.

Just look at this beautiful, gorgeous cake! While I specialize in easy to make recipes, he sure knows how to make the show stopper! 

This rounds up our first post on the Food Diary Series and I hope everyone has a great foodie experience on this lazy Sunday afternoon. Wish you guys a very happy Easter!

I was asked, what do you want to be when you grow up? As a kid I answered that I wanted to be a good person. It was only recently that I realized that all I want to do, is eat good food. And make good food, since; for me, and I quote George Bernard Shaw - "There is no love sincerer, than the love of food."
