Bandra Has A New Breakfast Delivery Service
With traffic snarls, train delays, and the rains to factor in, getting to work on time often means sacrificing the most important meal of the day. After spending many rushed mornings either skipping breakfast or settling for insipid office canteen meals during his previous job as an animation artist, Assad Dadan took it upon himself to better the breakfast prospects for folks who live and work in Bandra, Khar and Santa Cruz. His solution: launching a breakfast delivery service called The BrkFst.
The catering service was launched on Tuesday, August 28 and is restricted to Bandra, where Dadan’s kitchen is located, and neighbouring suburbs Khar and Santa Cruz. Dadan told us that by limiting himself to a small area of delivery, he is able to ensure that the hot dishes, such as aloo paratha, poha, and eggs, don’t go cold by the time they reach customers. The rotating menu offers nine vegetarian items, each priced at Rs40, and nine non-vegetarian items, each priced at Rs50. They include the dosa with chutney; chutney sandwich; chicken mayonnaise sandwich; chicken burger; masala bhurji; and masala omelette. The BrkFst only operates from Monday through Friday, with Wednesday designated as the egg day, and Monday and Friday for chicken dishes. While the service targets the office crowd, Dadan does deliver to homes for the benefit of freelancers without house-help and little time to rustle up their own meals.
Given the horrible state of traffic within Bandra and Khar, we had our doubts about how well our hot breakfast would weather the journey from Dadan’s kitchen. Thankfully, the aloo paratha, which came in an aluminum foil box, was warm. The paratha, which was cut into four triangles, had a good ratio of dough to stuffing, a simple mashed aloo sabzi flecked with cumin and spiced with green chilli. We also tried the chicken mayonnaise roll, which tasted similar to those you get at Bandra bakeries such as A-1, Hearsch, and Cafe Andora. The roll was liberally slathered with mayonnaise, to which Dadan added a squeeze of lime, and had sufficient shreds of boiled chicken mixed with shredded lettuce. With some of the meals, Dadan throws in home-baked cookies, brownies, or muffins for free. Based on the two dishes that we sampled, we can say that while The BrkFst’s breakfast is not the most inventive, it’s better than the stodgy canteen fare we’ve had to settle for in our previous jobs.
The BrkFst requires a minimum subscription of one month. They offer delivery within Bandra (West) and up to Juhu Garden in Santa Cruz. To sign up, call 98192 17211.Tags: Assad Dadan, delivery, home delivery, The BrkFst
