The famous place to have amazing Maharasthrian food even though they serve dishes like dosas nowadays, my mom loves the original maharashtrian food and we love the Thalipeeth, Pithala Bhakri, Misal Paav, Masala Bhat, Bharli Vangi, Kothimbir Vadi, and Kharwas in the dessert section. Ambiance is family friendly and seating is a bit cramped but the servers are helpful and will help you choose dishes if you have never had Maharashtrian food before.
Now that's what I call son-of-the-soil... a restaurant specialising in vegetarian Maharashtrian cuisine.. located in Dadar and a stone's throw from Shivsena Bhavan (though I strongly urge not to throw any harmful objects in and around that area!)After a rather filling snackathon at Dattatrey (yet another son-of-the-soil to be added on Burrp) where my lady and I ordered and completely enjoyed an array of Marathi food - Thalipeeth, Kothmir Vadi, Puneri Misal and Batata Vada, the circum-navigation of Shivaji Park was required. Once done, I decided to head straight to Aaswad for a comparison...
Air-conditioned, neat decor and a higher waiter-table ratio, the service had to be impeccable... which it was. The order - Thalipeeth (two shallow fried pancakes with sweet-n-sour yoghurt) and Puri Bhaji. The butter (or ghee as it seemed) was really not required with Thalipeeth as all it did was spoil the taste... the dish is better had with Suki chutney (dry powdered red pepper with garlic) and the yoghurt. The Puri Bhaji was served with chopped onions (they seem to have hedged their onion supplies to guard against the price rise), coconut chutney and the dry one... another decent affair. Other stuff on the menu include the ubiquitous Sabudana Khichdi (steamed and spiced sago), its Vada version and a host of other Maharashtrian dishes like Kothmir-vadi, Sheera, Piyush etc...All-in-all... a fairly decent experience... Remember - this is famous for its local cuisine... so be there just for that... and trust me - I've found new love with the Marathas... they know to spice-it-up real nice!
