*Highlights of the Cafe*
*The specialty of this place is that the Founder of this Cafe, Mr. Amin Sheikh doesn't keep even a single earning by running the Cafe with himself, he uses it to meet the basic necessities of the underprivileged.*
*The Reason why he does this is because he was a Street Boy himself and he doesn't want anyone to live a difficult life on the Streets like how he did, hence all the staff he employs are former Street Boys and Girls.*
*The name Bombay to Barcelona came into existence because Mr. Amin always dreamt of sitting on an Aeroplane and his dream came true when he took his first ever flight from Mumbai to Barcelona.*
*To be honest, the organic reason about why I visited this cafe was because of the phenomenal rating on Zomato i.e 4.9/5*
*Each dish on their menu has a Story behind it*
*Every Painting and Every Story Book is gifted by someone but the Highlight is that they do not accept donations in the form of books, paintings and other souvenirs from every offerer, they only accept donations if it is adds value to the Cafe or to their Clients, they term their Clients as "BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE" and they say nothing is possible without them*
*They have indoor as well as outdoor seating available at the Cafe, both are extremely cozy, one can sit wherever they wish*
*I request each one of you'll to visit this Cafe, Indulge in some nice food and if anyone wishes, they can even donate some funds by depositing the funds in the Donation Box kept at the entrance of the Cafe*
*Coming to what we ordered:-*
*Paneer Pesto Sandwich:- What a fantastic decision it was of mine to order this one, They we're Two Buttery Slices of Whole Wheat Bread loaded with Soft and Creamy Cubes of Pesto Marinated Paneer, I totally enjoyed every morsel of this Sandwich, "I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND ORDERING THIS"*
*Paneer Burger:- All the Burger lovers have to get their hands on this one without any doubt, centered will a humongous breadcrumbs coated Paneer Patty and it also had a ton of veggies, a couple of exotic sauces etc. Although I loved the flavours that came from the Burger a lot, a slight drawback was in the Paneer Patty, paneer is usually supposed to be firm but this was a bit crumbly, please make sure that the Paneer Patty is firm and soft at the same time henceforth. It was served with Few Pieces of Fries which weren't worth missing on at all. All the essential nutrients which a Human Body requires were loaded in this one like Carbs from the Bun, Fats from the Sauces, Fibre from the Veggies and Protein from the Paneer, yes indeed a Burger can be super healthy too?*
*Veg Green Thai Curry with Exotic Veggies:- If anyone is looking for a One Bowl Complete Meal and is not thinking of ordering anything else, this should be their choice. This looked small in size but it was super satiating as it was drenched with endless amount of exotic veggies as the same suggests.*
*Veg Lasagne:- I saw Pizza on their menu but it was unfortunately unavailable, but that stubborn Italian Cravings in me did want me to fulfill my Italian Cravings with some Authentic Italian Dish so I went ahead and ordered for the Veg Lasagne. It tasted super homely, in short the lasagne had layers of heaven once one digs right in?*
*Cold Coffee:- I've witnessed their Cold Coffee various times in Pictures and I was really eager to give it a shot, it was a Superb Cold Coffee indeed, cool and refreshing at the same time, the perfect weapon to beat the heat.*
*Chikoo Milkshake:- I was a bit doubtful before ordering this one as I was not sure if this was their specialty or not, I'm soo glad that I went for this one, it was "THE BEST" Chikoo Milkshake I've had in recent times.*
*Gooey Chocolate Cake:- Everyone loves Gooey and Chocolaty Desserts, Isn't it? This dish was taught to the Chefs by a 17 Year Old Girl from Dubai, and it was undoubtedly soo soo divine, definitely worth every penny a person spends.*
*Carrot Cake:- I've been a sucker for a Good Carrot Cake since a very long time and when I saw this on their dessert counter, I knew I had to order for it. It was absolutely moist, I could feel the grated carrots after every bite I took in, it had a vibrant aroma and flavour of Cinnamon too.*
*This was an insight about my fantastic experience at this Cafe enriched with positively and kindness, one is definitely going to learn something new after visiting this place while enjoying the lovely food they serve.*
Bombay To Barcelona was started by Amin Shiekh who provides a safe and comfortable environment for people from all socio-economic backgrounds. Amin opened this Café in August 2016 and has since fulfilled his dream of opening a place that would employ homeless children, and let them lead a life as normal as possible. The library cum cafe is located near the metro station in Marol, Andheri East. It’s a friendly, relaxing refuge that seats up to 40 people at indoor and outdoor sections. The owner, who has been a street kid himself, likes to run the place without any judgment or discrimination against any class. He was an orphan who lived in the streets since he was 5 years old. He has learned things the hard way, but he’s prepared himself for the worst things in life. Today, he stands tall with this venture and wishes to help others find their way as well. The cafe serves cupcakes, cookies, and hot chocolate to street children free of cost. The proceeds of the cafe are utilized to pay salaries including housing and medical expenses of the staff to help them live a better life. The beauty of the place is doubled because of the hard work and effort put in by the people here.
We were so impressed with their work that our team has decided to sign up for the cause and volunteer for the next few weekends. Should we say more..?
