The Spare Kitchen, Juhu, Mumbai

Written By Ipsa Arora 20/03/2016
The Spare Kitchen, Juhu is located quite close to the Juhu church on Juhu Tara Road. The outside of the restaurant is as sober and peaceful as the inside. You step in and see beautifully and neatly laden tables. They have a sitting area outside too with TVs set-up for news and entertainment. The TV screen is projected on the inside walls of the restaurant too. The décor of the restaurant is beautiful with abstract art hung on the walls. 
You can spare everything but the Chocolate Fantasy at The Spare Kitchen. Nicely arranged in a long, narrow tray, you will be served various items sunk in delicious chocolate flavour. Chocolate brownie with layered chocolate syrup, chocolate ice cream sandwiched in chocolate wafers, chocolate cup cake, chocolate milk and chocolate balls in a stick. If chocolate is what your heart desires for, this one’s for you.
The people behind this fantastic restaurant are Gaurav Choksey (Operations), Ricky Marfatia (PR and administration) and Rakesh Talwar (Chef Patron).
The ambience of the restaurant is soothing and sober with dim lighting and proper ventilation. They have a separate area for the bar with blue lighting and big round sofas.
Talking about the food, they totally justify their tagline- ‘You’ll never eat at home again.” The food is brilliant in taste, outstanding in presentation and definitely a treat to the taste buds.  
They will make you start your eating spree with a complementary papad platter. Conical papads placed in a neat row and different chutneys and pickles poured in bright small buckets, accompanied by half cut lemon and some chillies, will be a nice starter to look out for. The unique aspect of this dish are the whole onions kept with a knife giving the platter an amazing look and giving you an opportunity to get the onions cut (or cut them yourself) in your own style. You will be totally floored by this complementary dish. So much so, that you will browse through the menu with double the curiosity. 
As a good bye drink and to help you metabolise the large amount of food you must have hogged onto by now, they serve you complementary lime water shots.
After trying the sumptuous dishes here, you might really not want to eat at home again, totally in accordance with their tagline!
Their service is brilliant, the staff is well trained and put in all their efforts to explain you the dishes and even recommends the ones you must try.
To further delight their customers, The Spare Kitchen keeps coming up with schemes on food and drinks. They engage customers by conducting competitions on social media platforms too.
All in all, it is a great place to spend a relaxed time with friends or family and eat the most amazing food.

Each of their dishes has some unique or enchanting aspect attached to it. You order Chicken Masaledar in Flames and they will demonstrate the flaming and putting it in the chicken in front of your eyes. The flaming chicken will make you feel fascinated about the dish.

Chowpatty on a TSK Platter is an authentic Mumbaiya dish with bhel puri, paani puri, small pavs with bhaji and wada served on a platter. The highlights of the dish are the droppers nicely arranged in a glass. The droppers contain yoghurt, red chutney and green chutney respectively which you can pour on the dishes as per your taste.
Special thanks to TSK team for their inputs.
