Ten-Second Takeaway

If you’re tired of frou frou salads with nothing but vegetables {who’s got time for that?}, check out the Messi’s Workout Mix salad at Uba Tuba in Bandra – every protein-lover’s dream.

Chow Down


This small Mexican joint has slowly been gaining popularity over the past few months. Their nachos are pretty good {as is to be expected from any self-respecting Mexican joint}, but the real winner is the salad selection.

And in that salad section, it is the Messi Workout Mix salad which has stolen our meat-loving hearts. This salad is loaded with everything you could desire. Strips of buff meat, grilled chicken, boiled eggs, chick peas, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, red onion, mixed nuts and mixed greens, all in a heavenly honey and dijon mustard dressing.

It’s filling, delicious, and super cheap, with a ‘small’ portion {which is more than enough for one person} for INR 220, and a large for two people for INR 330. If you’re tired of salads which never fill you up, or you’re looking for something to load up on after your own work-out, this is for you.

Other than this, you can also try the chicken burrito, which is crunchy, super-loaded and filling. The salsa sauce deserves its own shout-out – it’s delicious.

Sip On

The strawberry milkshake is pretty good, but nothing out of ordinary. Their drinks are a tad over-priced, so we tend to steer away.

So, We’re Saying…


The seating area here is quite nice as well, with both outdoor and indoor options. They have a few board games on hand as well, if you want to have a quick round of Snakes and Ladders while waiting for your salad.
