We had some of our old favourites such as the ice tea...they were one of the first to introduce it in Bombay. We had another favourite - sausages in firecracker sauce - sausages sliced in a thick tomato and green pepper sauce. We used to have this with garlic bread. Though we skipped it that evening I must say that Churchill serves the best garlic bread in Bombay.
We then had a dish which Kainaz had introduced me too once and that had become my favourite over the year - prawn newberg with pasta - I just love the white creamy sauce with the hint of tanginess lent by finely chopped tomatoes. I am yet to come across a dish which rivals this. And the prawns were big and juicy just as I remembered them to be (I hope my dietitian or doctor isn't reading this)
The smile on Kainaz's face as she had her first bite was worth the trip.
I was a bit disappointed though that our old friend, the gooey chocolate cake, wasn't there.
I can't tell you how good it felt to be back with Churchill. It's places like Churchill which had made me fall in love with the city. Truly a classic.
Their prices seem to be frozen in time too. Our dinner of one ice tea, one side dish and one prawn pasta cost us Rs 345 (USD 8.5) which is roughly what we used to pay when we used to go there seven years back before we were married.
