Kakori House - World's Softest Kebabs

It was lazy sunday after Gudi Padwa long weekend. I was hungry & wanted to try something new, apart from the regular Sadiccha or other joints in Bandra East area.
My friend Makarand dropped in after 1:30 pm on Sunday & we planned to go our for lunch. I remembered Mahim food joints starting after Mahim Church and going upto Dadar Shiv Sena Bhavan.
We planned to visit Kakori House at their Mahim outlet. Kakori House is located on L J Road opposite Paradise Cinema & next to famous Goan food joint, Sushegad. Kakori House is famous for its world's softest kebab. And, believe me they are indeed the softest. Kakori House is an air conditioned joint with 5 tables and seating capacity of 24 people at a time.
We ordered Murgh Seekh Kebab (3 pcs), Kakori Kebab (3 pcs). Along with it we ordered Sheermal & Warqi Paratha.
Murgh Seekh Kebab were the regular chicken seekh kebab which we had tasted in the past many times. But Kakori Kebab were the best as they mentioned on their menu card, as the SOFTEST KEBABS IN THE WORLD. And they are really soft and melt in mouth. I had never ever had such soft kebabs till I had these. In fact, never knew kebabs are meant to be soft too.
Sheermal (orange coloured) is speciality of Awadh, made in iron tandoor with milk, saffron & flour. Although it was too oily but taste was simply awesome.
Warqi Paratha is a soft Paratha made using Saffron & Milk & cooked on saffron tawa. This was less oily as compared to Sheermal.
Although, I was disappointed by Phrini served here. Phirni is a popular North-Indian sweet dish. It is widely served in earthen vessels but here it was served in a plastic container. But Kakori House is a must visit place for Kebab lovers.

ENERGEE..... Mumbai's Nostalgic Drink

Had after long time. Taste is same but, things have changed. Remembered childhood days, in slim 200ml bottle with typical Aarey logo. In those days the Aarey outlets were large in numbers throughout Mumbai.

Now, everyone is in search of CCD, Barista or Starbucks. Lot has changed. Yes, shape of  Energee bottle has changed with a plastic label. Today it costs 25/-, those days it used to cost 5/-. Even Masala Milk from Aarey used to cost 5/- in those days.
