Trader Vic's Mai Tai Lounge's Sensational Sliders Menu

          Trader Vic's Mai Tai lounge is a refreshing oasis of tropicalness in the humdrum restaurants/ diners we usually go to. In two locations, in Mumbai  (Phoenix market - Kurla and Phoenix mills - Lower Parel), Mai Tai has launched its new "Sensational Sliders" Menu from the 24th of February to the 23rd of March. This Tiki - inspired rendition of flavors in tasty bite - sized sliders is their new introduction. A few varieties of sliders were already a part of their usual menu. According to the manager, the sliders are pretty popular because they are quick eats and can be had on the go. 

           The Veggie Selection included-

  • Beetroot & Brown Slider - a beetroot and brown rice patty, gherkins & chili garlic aioli which was mild tasting, but wasn't distinctly beetroot-y. A twist in the form of toast circles being used instead of bread buns to encase the patty. The toast circles were a little too oily for my liking. The chili garlic aioli was the star of the dish.
  • The Falafel Pita Slider- It has a chickpea & spinach patty, yogurt aioli & grilled pita. Instead of the bun, pita triangles are the encasing used. This one here, was a burst of flavors. Slightly on the spicier side. And the substitution of chickpea instead of the garbanzo beans made the patty really smooth and dense, and the spinach gave the much needed texture.
  • The Cottage Cheese and & Olive Tapenade Slider - Cottage Cheese Steak, Jerk Marinade & Olive Tapenade. This one was my favourite by far. The cottage cheese was soft, and absolutely fresh. Ajay Samtani - who is the assistant Kitchen manager revealed that the secret to the super succulent patty was the fact that it was stewed in tomato juice. The olive tapenade was the perfect accompaniment. 

    Chef Ajay obliged us with a nice picture
 The Mushroom Alfredo Slider - Fresh mushroom sauce, white sauce, cheddar cheese with Maui Waui dressing. This was perfect for the cheese lover in me! Even though the slider looked much like a vada pav, but tasted every bit like it should! Creamy, cheesy with the perfect addition of mushrooms. And the Maui Waui dressing added a solid punch to the mild flavors of the patty.Yum! yum! 

The Non - veggie Menu included -

  • Italian Herb & Chicken Slider
  • Jalapeno & Olive Chicken Slider
  • Thai Fish Cake Slider
  • Chili & Lime Fish Slider
  • Black Bean & Prawn Slider
  • Cubanitos Slider
My meat loving co - diners have recommended the Cubanitos Slider very strongly! :D Coming to the mocktails, my choice was Puerto Principe - a creamy pineapple & coconut delight, and may I say, that I wasn't disappointed at all! There was delightful Caribbean music playing in the background and the crockery and cutlery they use adds to the feel - Take a look - 

A special mention to the staff at Mai Tai (Pheonix Market City - Kurla). The service was brilliant. Extremely helpful and courteous staff. 10/ 10 for the service. 
Go check their super sliders menu. You wont be disappointed. 

Until next time,


  1. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me. I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
    My Experience I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very
    different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!
