YOKO'S SIZZLERS







surprising though it may seem,accompanied by a colleague,i decided to become a little adventurous for lunch yesterday.s had bought some stuff from bombay stores on pm road and she had been given a free rs 200 coupon for food at yoko's.she had promptly passed it on to me and when i was clearing the mess on my worktable yday,i found this small piece of paper and the last day for availing of this discount was 28th feb.then and there i decided to have a go at it. with a little bit of trepidation,i must admit. "gb,no lunch to be packed" and off i left for the office some time later.i had warned my accounts manager yday morning that i was going to treat him for lunch and he was pretty excited.gunbow street is very close to our office and many many years ago,shall we say 45 years ago,we lived in this area for 2 years when we first moved to mumbai.i knew the coordinates quite well and we reached the place around 1.30.

yoko's sizzlers was earlier 'star of asia',an irani joint.i had been there earlier during my days in st xavier's college for pav and maska and hot tea.they used to apply 'polsons' butter those days.the whole place had undergone a facelift.as was expected.the new owner,anjum rizvi has done a good job,i must admit, pleasing indoor deco,courteous waiters,quite and peaceful place. very good ambience.the two most important things-quality and taste of food and the price.on both counts,yoko's sizzlers comes out in flying colours.

we ordered mushroom soup for my colleague,cheese and onion soup for myself.it was just the right temperature and tasted great.we moved on to vegetable sizzlers.the first time i had heard and seen sizzlers was in 1967 when an indusrtrial engineer colleague of mine took me out for lunch to the taj mahal hotel. some years back s and i went to indigo and everyone was ordering only sizzlers.the smoke and aroma was so overpowering that we decided to leave.a deja vu now.served on a hot skillet and served piping hot,it was on a bed of rice on which capsicum,potatoes,cabbage,cauliflower,carrot and peas topped up with sweet and sour sauce and fine cheese shavings.actually we had one by two.it was a big portion.and to cool down the hot sizzlers we went for some real cold stuff.kulfis.and they were gorgeous.and we felt we should have ordered one by two for the dessert too.

and the bill came to just rs 510 less rs 200 discount and the net bill was just rs 310. add rs 50 for tips and it was a pretty good deal. we left satisfied and decided to come again when we were in a mood for sizzlers. oh,i forgot. i must say "thanks" to s for leaving that scrap paper on my table!

i miss the b'bay sizzler places. i used to love going to the one near marine drive and the other near santacruz in the suburbs.
sanjoy hates sizzlers, he hates all the smoke, but i don't mind really, i realy enjoy the experience.
