Name : Classic
Place : very close to Don Bosco School, Matunga
This place is very close to my college and I was rather surprised that I hadn’t eaten here even once, my friends were much more surprised than I was and decided to drag me to Classic then and there without any further delay.
Classic greeted me with a heavy aroma of spices and strong flavors generally used in dishes that Indians like to call ‘Chinese’. It is definitely one of the better fastfood joints in Matunga and I was told by my friends that their Pav Bhaji was to die for. I went through the menu (which offered plenty of choices), nevertheless I decided to take my friends’ suggestion. I wasn’t disappointed at all as the Pav Bhaji indeed turned out to be quite something. Mumbaikars I feel absolutely love their Pav Bhaji and being the thorough Mumbaikar that I am have eaten this quintessential Bambaiyya dish at many places. Restaurants that manage to pull off this delightful dish with finesse automatically win my respect. Classic got very very close to that, if not bang on. The Bhaji was very tasty and well prepared. It came with a dollop of butter, (like Bhaji always has, and always should 😉 ). The Pavs too were generously buttered and fresh. My friend ordered the Jain version of the dish (Jains don’t eat onions, an extremely important ingredient of Pav Bhaji or any tasty Vegetable dish for that matter). I tried some of his Bhaji and believe me, it was equally delicious as the normal one, if not more. #FoodieDelight knew no bounds.
On the bad side, the restaurant was a little congested, the waiters could have been a little more affable and the service surely wasn’t the best I had seen.
So here goes the report card:
Taste : 8
Ambience : 7
Service : 6
Value for money : 8
