Best Pizzas in Powai

I don’t want to start off saying that I have been hibernating for quite some time now, but now since I am on that note, well yeah, whatever! Sorry for the boring opening.

Powai has been a very dear part of my Bombay stay, and pizzas, likewise. I love Pizzas, I love trying all the different places where they serve good Pizzas. So let’s talk about Pizzas in Powai today.

Everyone who has been to Powai, knows that its a cute town in the city, green, geeky, young, peaceful part of Mumbai. And we all love it for what it is. I have explored many Pizza options around and my personal favourite is Pizza Express! Hands down! Here’s a list, however, since you will never stop trying Pizzas everywhere.

  1. Pollo Forza at Pizza Express is a must have!

If you’re a fan of freshly baked thin crusts, chicken, just the right spices, garlic chilli oil and flavors from around the world – this is what you MUST go for. It will freshen your mood, especially paired with the pleasurable ambience and if you like it that way, probably a glass of your favorite wine. Perfect for all those days that you need a getaway after a long and tiring day at work.

2. Aromas


Strangely enough, the second best Pizza in Powai I had was at Aromas – its the chilli garlic chicken pizza they serve. Again, thin crust (not sure if its freshly baked). Probably because it tastes very different, I like the flavour, its thin crust and there’s chicken. A late Sunday brunch or when you are just hanging out. Worth a try, definitely!

3. Pizza Hut 


I have not been a fan, but they have been doing a great job these days! Someone like me even enjoyed a veg Pizza at Pizza Hut once! And trust me I am a pure carnivore when it comes to Pizzas. I HATE veg Pizzas, I don’t get the point. I tasted one of their overloaded Big Pizzas recently and I loved it! As long as that’s their on the menu cards, its economical and its yum!

I promise to keep improving this list.

And that’s all, I don’t like Dominos, no Papa John’s these days too! There’s this really cool place Sorriso that I love. I will tell you about it some time, not today.

I’ve eaten Pizzas almost everywhere in Powai now, so drop in a comment or a query if you want to know anything more!

Getting around, Mixing up.

My theory says, the types of people living in a city depend on the many different modes they use to travel around it. Sounds bizarre? Let me explain you how.

Mumbai is a merry city. People here travel in trains, two wheelers, three wheelers, BMWs, some also have three helipads on the roof of their world’s most expensive houses. Yes, there’s contrasting diversity of life & travel style all over. And exactly that defines the people here.

Some people don’t remember how many BMWs they own. 


They don’t remember a lot of other things. They forget that these luxury vehicles are meant to be driven on the roads and not footpaths. Some are too coward to admit that they drove over and killed a couple of living men sleeping there. And it’s so easy for them to get away with absolutely anything. Despite everything, they are adored by the masses; they are superheroes so on top of the pyramid, no-one can touch them. In fact, most of the other people live, just to reach here. These people are driven by luxuries & comforts of life, limelight, paparazzi and a lot of travel.

Many enjoy auto-rickshaws and cabs. 


Some of them have a car too, which is a very integral part of their lives. It’s so dear to them, it might even have a name; its like family. Family, which is the most important part of their lives. They live, eat, see cities & towns all because of the place they hold or want to hold in the eyes of their families & friends. They follow their superheroes, their styles, and live to one day magically turn into that one person they adore & follow. These people are driven by ambitions they have for themselves & dreams their families see, aspirations to reach the top & hope to travel around the world.

Most run & catch trains.


They wake up, tuck in, rush out for the overwhelming ride each day. Struggling hard for a ‘seat’ somewhere in a cranny, they are the ones who see and the enjoy the wind – hot or cold, summer or old. They dream big, while they move around the city. They believe in destiny, magic, superstitions, superheroes. They like to believe in everything slightly magical that they can put in their thoughts while going back home from work. These are the people driven by love, hope, basic needs of life & lots & lots of travel.

It’s for you to decide now, where you fall, fully or partially. Where you want to fall and why? And exactly this question drives this city of ‘dreams’ crazy each day.

It’s been a year and I still feel so new to this city.

Most of my last 11 months in Bombay, I spent battling the maddening rush of vehicles everyday; and trying out all the regular things a new Bombaikar does. But waving back to Amitabh Bachchan on a Sunday at 6 in the evening still tops my what’s-left-to-do list. Nightout by the marine drive, walking back home at 2 in the night, the bachelor’s sweet chilli ice-cream, drooling over the sight of a celebrity that you saw on TV sometime in life – I have put a check against all of this. But everytime I walk out of my cute little nest in a cozy corner of this city, I am left amazed how endlessly fascinating it is!

This is an honest attempt to share some exciting stories about food, fun, frolic and fantasy that this city showcases. By ways of introduction, I am a regular small town girl (yes, I still am!) with a superhero degree from one on the oldest IITs this country has seen. A few months back I figured why work for someone else and broke out of my not so happy relationship with my employer. And now I do everything I love, without caring what others (including you) think.

So get on board if you are up for a very different tour of ‘Bombay’ not the city, but the dream!
