Review: Vero Moda

Vero Moda, the European fashion brand opens its largest store in Mumbai at Linking Road. The store is huge and shares space with two other brands, Jack & Jones and Only. The ground level is entirely occupied by Vero Moda whereas the second and third levels by Only and Jack & Jones respectively.

When I saw this new store from outside, I was more than excited to enter and shop! Hoping that the stuff is not very pricey, I saw a bunch of socialites already filling up their shopping bags. For girls, there were dresses, tops, tunics, leggings, skirts, shirts, jackets and shades. The dresses ranged from Rs 1,100 upto 3,500. The tops were also in the same range. The jackets were quite stylish as well and started at Rs 2,000.
Overall, I think that the collection at this store is decently priced. It's not like one of those stores where you can just watch and drool but the idea of buying anything would by default create a hole in your pocket.
Go check it out before all the good stuff is sold out!

Review: Moshe's, Bandra

Time to rejoice for us Bandraites, as Moshe's opens its brand new branch at Hill Road. Right above Nature's Basket, the entry to Moshe's is through a small, easily missable entrance on the main road. You can choose from the elevator or the dingy staircase and the huge, spacious restaurant will greet you flamboyantly!

As you step in, you'll notice the variety of bakes on display to your left. Different kinds of breads, jams and sauces, absolutely tempting. The restaurant is more on the lines of a fine-dine, with tables for four and couches for six. There is an entire display of desserts in one corner of the restaurant. 

I visited the place in the evening, assuming that it's more like a cafe, but to my surprise, it was a proper sit down restaurant with a comparatively formal ambience. Without wasting much time, I ordered for a Spiced Harissa Chicken Sandwich (Grilled) and a Moshe's Penne Signature Pasta in Paprika sauce.

The sandwich was served with two sauces as well as fries and salad. It was yummy but undoubtedly overpriced. Rs 350 for a sandwich exclusive of tax is a rip off! The pasta, similarly, was well cooked, cheesy and was served with garlic bread. This was also quite expensive, Rs 350, again.

A fail for a day visit, this branch of Moshe's is only recommended if you are planning to have a high budget meal. However, the service is prompt and food is delectable and if you're a Moshe fan, you must visit it atleast once!
