A glance at the menu card of this iconic Vile Parle Eatery reveals that their repertoire is wide enough to accommodate an immense variety of vegetarian tastes. From the usual South Indian, Chinese and Punjabi lunch menu to a wide variety of snacks - sandwiches, pizza, pav bhaji, chaat, juices, milkshakes, faloodas - you name it, they have it. But for all those who seek authentic flavours, the food is sufficiently Mumbai-ised. The chaat items do not carry the fire and tang of that found in North India, the Choley in the Choley-Bhature is nothing close to the flavours of an authentic pindi chana and the sambhar is too sweet to be recommended by a Tamilian.
The best bet is to order typical Mumbai fare like Pav Bhaji, of which they have a wide variety. Their sandwiches and dosas are also worth trying. Patrons swear by their special falooda or gadbad.
Claiming to be operating 19 branches all over Mumbai, the maiden Navi Mumbai outlet of Amar Juice Center at Satra Plaza, Vashi remains more or less true to the culinary traditions of its flagship venture. Having been to the Vile Parle eatery umpteen times, we decided to check out this Branch which is barely 500 mts from our home. A few pointers that I would like to share:
1. Pleasing decor and comfortable seating arrangements set the right mood for a relaxed meal.
2. Service is quick, efficient and friendly.
3. Timings from 11 am to 1 pm in the night means this place is a good option for a late night bite.
4. Weekend crowds could mean a waiting time of upto 40 mins in those evenings.
5. Situated bang on the busy Palm Beach, parking space on crowded days could be an issue.
6. Food is tasty. but for me it was too oily to be high on the health quotient.
7. Jain variety of all items is available on request at the time of order.
Amar is definitely a good option if you wish to enjoy fresh hot meal and snacks in a pleasing ambiance with friends and family till late in the night.
