Alsalam Restaurant

1816 N University Dr, Plantation, FL 33322
I found Alsalam on the internet while visiting Florida. They have been around since 2001 and are located  next to a middle eastern grocery. There is quite a bit of people traffic, in the grocery and the restaurant which made it all the more inviting.

I arrived here extremely hungry and almost closing time. The atmosphere is nice, and very family oriented with large tables. There were still quite a few people in there even though it was about 5 minutes from closing. Surprising the staff had no problem with me ordering. I had expected them to be slightly annoyed.

The menu is pretty extensive middle eastern cuisine. I ordered white meat chicken kabab which was absolutely delicious. Accompanied by salad, yogurt and spicy rice. While waiting I ordered tea that truly hit the spot.  Very yummy!! I can't wait to go back.  I'm sure this would be my once a week restaurant if I lived in Florida!

Bonsai Fusion Japanese Steakhouse

We went to Bonsai Fusion on a recommendation of a friend. The atmosphere, ambiance and decor were very peaceful, but in my opinion the wait staff didn't seem very accommodating to young children. They seemed a little stressed that the little one's might eventually do something they shouldn't.

We tried the hibachi grill once, and thoroughly enjoyed it, it's a bit of a show and well worth it if you have time. Make sure you're with some good company so you can pass the time while waiting. Although they do have large screen tv's and you could enjoy a good sport or show while waiting. One thing to remember is make sure to tell them not to pour the alcohol on the grill when they start! It's a bit of a splash of flame that obviously some people enjoy but if you're eating halal, I doubt you need that show. We had the chicken, and steak hibachi which was accompanied by delicious onion soup, salad, vegetables and rice. Totally enjoyable, and more than enough.

Badshah Snacks, Crawford Market

Food Type: Fast food, Snacks, Sandwiches, Paav Bhaji, Dosa and more.

Shop No 152/156, L T Marg, Crawford Market, Mumbai

Anyone heading to Crawford Market in Mumbai has probably stopped at Badshah Snacks for a light lunch or anytime in the day snacks and fresh juices. And if you haven't, you definitely should.

A staple of Mumbai, Badshah has been around for as long as I can remember. The menu is so vast you could probably order something new every time, although I have my favorites that I HAVE to order whenever I go there.

First on the list is the Sev Bateta Puri, a plate consisting of seven puris piled high with mashed potatoes, onions, chutney and sev. Simply scrumptious, and always ending with me eyeing the last puri while whoever happens to be with me at the time offers somewhat reluctantly to let me have the last one. Also a good bet is any of the South Indian dishes on the menu, my favorites being the Medu Wara, Idli, and plain Dosa, all served with yummy hot Sambar, and a delicious coconut chutney. One of the most famous dishes, which my sister in-law swears by is their Pav Bhaji. This is a real hit, as every time I'm there I see it on virtually every table. You might want to give Pav Bhaji a try next time!!!

Head on over and give it a try when visiting Mumbai.
