Foodie, book-lover and dessert junkie Anshula Kapoor talks about her favourite cuisines and restaurants.
Which are your favourite places to hang out with friends?
“I would much rather hang out in one of our homes, enjoy great food, play with our dogs, and laugh till we are falling off the bed. When we choose to go out to grab a meal, some of our go-to favourite restaurants include Yauatcha, Bastian, Kitchen Garden, The Bombay Canteen, and Shake Shack!”
What’s your guilty indulgence?
“This is an endless list! Shake Shack burgers, French fries, and desserts of any kind, especially chef Kelvin Cheung’s pancakes and French toasts at Bastian. Ice cream has my heart. My go-tos are the Raw Cacao ice cream from Yogisattva and the Cotton Candy ice cream from Baskin Robbins.”
What’s your favourite cuisine?
“Indian food is comfort food and will always be my happy place. I also love Italian, Thai and Chinese food. When it comes to comfort food, I really enjoy pizza, the food at my dadi’s house, and the Sindhi kari chawal and tuuk at my best friend Nishiki’s house.”
Do you have a sweet tooth?
“I love all desserts – from Jhama’s gulab jamun to ice cream and everything in between! I love the Nutella Brownies and Nutella Cheesecake at Le 15 Patisserie; the Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies from the patisserie at The Leela Mumbai; and basically everything that comes out of Fitness Bakery’s kitchen. Radhieka is a lifesaver and miracle worker, who truly knows how to hit the spot while delivering gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free goodness. I also like chef Kelvin Cheung’s Chocolate Chip Pancakes with extra chocolate chips at Bastian.”
What do you prefer – cooking or ordering in?
“As long as someone else is doing the cooking, I’m good.”
Do you use Scootsy?
“Yes, I use Scootsy a lot, and not just to order food. Some of the restaurants I frequently order from include Sequel Bistro & Juice Bar, Bastian, Le15 Patisserie, Yogisattva and Sweetish House Mafia.
From Sequel Bistro & Juice Bar, I order the Vegan Protein Bowl Salad, Acai Bowl, Vegan Cacao Smoothie and Avocado Sunshine.
From Bastian, I usually order Not Cheesecake Bowl and the Vegetarian Everything Bagel.
From Sweetish House Mafia, my top orders are Nutella Sea Salt Cookies and Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies.
From Le 15 Patisserie, I love ordering Nutella Brownie Pastry and Nutella Cheesecake Pastry.”
Which is the last meal you ordered on Scootsy?
“Keto Double Chocolate Chip Fudge Cookies from Fitness Bakery.”
