So I have the best friends ever. This is why: On my birthday last week, I was whisked off to the Trident in Mumbai for a surprise birthday dinner by my friend Shreya and her husband Naresh. The sushi chef at 022 had prepared a beautiful vegan sushi platter with avocado, shitake mushroom and cucumber. The patisserie chef, Tanisha Ravindra pulled out all the stops with her vegan dark chocolate cake- decorated on top with a stiletto (this is Shreya's way of hinting that I may have slight shoe addiction problem... :P ). Seriously, if you want to eat the best vegan cake in town- Tanisha's your man.
For the main course there was a red curry and shitake mushroom and broccoli stir fry in black bean sauce with jasmine rice. And of course the Pina Coladas made the evening one I will remember for a very very long time. Thanks Shreya and Naresh- I owe you guys one! :)
