Dominos Pepper Chicken Pizza – green bell peppers & black olives & cheese with chunks of pepper chicken on a pizza. Dominos rant and a Tuborg lager. This was shot a few months ago.
Bloomsbury in Lulu Mall – they have a shawarma on a pizza. Skewered chicken from the shawarma grill, black olives,lots of bell peppers and onions with Tahini sauce and garlic sauce with cheese. It became a bit too much after two or three slices.
Burger Hut’s Jumbo Cheesy Beef – The cheapest decent burger joint you can find in Cochin. Small burger patties with no fuss and none of the frills. Prices are barclays loan online very decent. They do have very decent shakes, a couple of which are pretty awesome. Decent fries.
India’s largest coffeehouse chain, Cafe Coffee Day, is one of the places I mostly have visited for a (usually) cold coffee/frappe fix and a little bite to eat on weekends or other days that I am free. Ever since 2006 I have frequently CCD but in more recent months – since 2015 – I have preferred the more independent chains as even though CCD still has probably some really good frappes/lattes and other beverages, their snacks and sandwiches are very lacking.
Still it is convenient as they now have 3 outlets near me and one small one in Lulu Mall which is a place I go for movies. Yesterday I visited their newest outlet in my city and which is also very close to my residence. It is the spanking, brand new outlet on Kaloor-Kadavanthara road. It was opened in November 2017 and is a pretty cool place to while away some time in, while drinking your caffeine intake for the day.
Here are my favourite foods listed in no particular order (though pizzas are my favourite of all time:
- club sandwich (meat, chicken anything)
- ice cream sundaes
- biryani (chicken, beef, mutton/lamb, pork)
- barbecue/grilled/rotisserie chicken
- pork – Chinese style crispy pork is the best
The Real Texan comes with one juicy beef patty, sauces, fried egg, chicken sausages, lettuce and onion. The Burger Junction has awesome burgers and this one is no exception.
Dominos’s Chef Chicken Choice – grilled chicken rashers, bell peppers, paprika, black olives and cheese.
Burger King’s Chicken Whopper with French Fries and Pepsi. Medium fries is just Rs.10. Why do they have the whopper without cheese? You need to order it separately.
French Toast With Mushroom Gravy & Chicken Sausages at French Toast Cafe & Bakery – I would have thought that the mushroom gravy on the French toast would have been too much but it was pretty delicious. Their coffees though are pretty weak; the Iced Americano was blah!
Pizza Hut’s Chicken Sausage & Cheese Pizza with onions. Good pizza and cash iphone I was glad to see that they have added more cheese to the pie.
On The Highway – Beef patty, salami, onion rings, fried egg, lettuce & cheese with French Fries on the side. A big burger that is a 9 outta 10. Cafe 17 never lets me down. Banana & chocolate shake to wash it down.
Well, happy 25th of December to everyone wherever you are. Just another Monday but I get the day off so I am happy about it. Today I was planning on just staying at home and enjoying myself with some movies and buy dinner via home delivery and drink a couple of beers. Well my folks ended up going to a relative’s house along with my sister and niece for lunch so I thought I’d buy some chicken for meself.
I thought maybe pizza from Dominos or Pizza Hut for a while, since they go really well with beer but I was really in the mood for fried chicken. So I ordered a three piece from Chick King with French fries, some mayo and garlic sauce in these small containers. It was yum! I drank my beer and ate my chicken and enjoyed a quite afternoon at home.
I fell asleep at 3pm and took a long nap so I will be up for a while after I go to bed so I will watch a movie or two. Hope you all have had a good day.
The Club Sandwich at Chai Kochi French Fries – eggs, chicken salad, lettuce, chicken ham, tomato with mayo. A frapuccino to wash that down. A just about above average sandwich which was more bread than anything else.
McDonald’s Cheesy Fries – a spicy and tangy sauce and lots of melted cheese on their regular fries.
Even though on the actual cooking part, it is quite simple, I have never had a Full English Breakfast. I came somewhat close to it this evening – yes evening! Here is what my meal of toast with butter, bakes beans, 4 small sausages, a small hash brown and two eggs sunny-side up looked like. Oh and some bad pineapple juice!
Cafe Coffee Day’s American Classic Burger (Actually Sliders) – chicken cutlet patties, onions, lettuce. I wish Indian restaurants and cafes would stop calling things like American Classic when we could actually go to war with them for this ridiculous named item which falls short. The chicken patties were bland and the score of 6 is a generous one. When we are getting individually owned joints that do an awesome job in making juicy delicious burgers, a big franchise like CCD is making below par stuff.
What is your most vivid memory of the kitchen in your childhood?
That is a tough one. I honestly am not sure and cannot pinpoint a single memory about the kitchen that was in the apartment my parents, my sister and I lived in during our time in Kuwait. I was born in Kuwait City and lived there till I was almost 11 years old and then moved to India.
I guess during those years I associate the kitchen with tuna – odd choice, maybe? But I and my family love tuna. We lightly fry them and ate them in sandwiches with a little cheese. Or even some as a side to rice and curry. Them and fish fingers which were another favourite of my family. Mom cooked some up that you got in that box and she gave them to us as a snack and dad loved it too.
For other reasons I also associate that kitchen with eggs instantloans – omelets, scrambled, hard boiled or bullseyes – and Hungry Bunny burger patties, which you bought frozen and cooked in a pan. Man, those were the days.
