Sometimes all you need is a bowl full of comfort food. The bowl can comprise different types of rich such as herbed rice, steamed rice, jeera rice or biryani rice along with a choice of the main curry. The Indian bowls can have mains like rajma, chole, paneer tikka, butter chicken, dal makhani or even dhaba dal tadka while the exotic bowls consist of pastas, noodles, wok rice and various continental staples. Ditch that elaborate platter and dig into a bowl of ultimate goodness by dialling up or visiting these 'bowl meal' places.

From all the 7 delicious options that they have, we personally love the Chocolate PB Smoothie Bowl having banana, house made peanut butter, cacao, coconut milk and served with toasted nuts, cacao nibs and chia seeds. Their Pink Passion Smoothie Bowl of apple juice, papaya, raspberry, banana served with toasted nuts and chia seeds is also a great try!
Located in Baner, it has a very cute, polished and well-thought decorative interior. Just like their admirable interior, their food is lip-smacking.
