New Bombay at the Ayala Columns

Yes, this is so apt. I just posted a blog entry yesterday about going on a healthy diet…then I go ahead and post about food the next day. To my defense, New Bombay serves Indian food. This means that even though its menu is heavy with all kinds of sauces, they are at least mostly vegetarian.

Err. Actually, I should have written about my Communication Behavior class trip before this but since my brain got fried from all that resizing, I think I shall relax by writing about food first. Well. After the Yuchengco Museum trip (I’ll post about it tomorrow, promise!! EDIT: Posted!!), my classmates and professor went across the RCBC building to New Bombay, located at the Ayala Columns.

Sorry for the haphazard shooting. My classmates were so hungry, I was afraid they’d attack me with spoons if I were too slow in taking pictures.

Rod calls this the “Pipino Pizza”. It looks really good, but it’s actually topped with mutton. I suspect it does taste good…I’m just not up to chewing on meat.

This is actually my favorite Indian dish, Palak Paneer. This time around, though, I wanted to try something new. So this is Julienne’s order: cottage cubes immersed in spinach puree. Loooooove!

These things have yellow insides. Hm…they looked really yummy, but I tried to stick to my dish. I don’t think I could have stopped myself if I had dug into these babies.

This is what I ordered. It’s basically the red version of the green dish I pictured above. This time, the cottage cheese cubes are immersed in a kind of tomato concoction. It’s delicious and still has that lovely kick even though I told the waitress to take it easy on the spices.

I am a huge fan of Indian flat breads. They keep me from gorging myself, which is the opposite what rice does to my eating habits. This order isn’t mine though.

This is mine, as it is made of whole wheat. That’s supposed to be good for you. I could have ordered two of this, though. I still felt hungry after the meal.

Om nom nom!! I didn’t eat this, but it sure looks appetizing.

Jenny ordered samosas. This is probably the only Indian dish that I could actually name. I’m not a huge fan of samosa, though. I find them a wee bit too oily, even the ones that aren’t oily by samosa standards. I’m just not a fan of fried food in general.

Hm…Is it just me or has Blogger finally allowed us to display bigger versions of our photos? I know there used to be “Large” and “X-Large” options before, but their resolutions sucked. Now they look great!Β  Whatever change it is that Blogger implemented, I’m very happy with it.

    I used to eat samoas for breakfast when I was in India a few years back. That orange thing looks like pao bahji or something like that. Does it taste somewhat like palabok sauce?

    I love Indian food. There are many available here in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, and I still have a lot to visit. A few years back, when my wife worked in the middle of the city, we used to have our breakfast regularly at a nice Indian restaurant, usually just crispy roti kosong (flat bread) or roti telur (flat bread mixed with eggs). But I have never experienced the cottage cubes in spinach puree – it's sooo green!
