Featured Review – The Lab

Nestled in the by-lanes of Walkeshwar, ‘The Lab’ offers a cozy, comfortable vibe that all of us dream of! A small outlet with colourful low-seated chairs, walls embellished with quirky frames, and paired up with good music, The Lab is an innovative outlet where science and fiction dominates your brain! Have plenty of time to kill? You’ve come to the right place. With exciting board games, The Lab promises you more than a few hours of fun. And the best part is the absolutely delicious food you’re about to order that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. So if you’ve got a few hours and yet are on a budget, head to The Lab!

Are you a hard-core vegetarian? No problem, plenty to choose from. Taking you back to your school days, The Lab is a themed around science, so much so that food and drinks are served in flasks and test tubes! Is the nostalgia already hitting you?

Let me tell you a secret. The best way to earn those amazing Zephop points is to try the Hummus and Pita bread for starters. The creamy texture of the hummus with finely chopped herbs and chilli flakes adorning the olive oil dressing in chickpea-based dip will blow your mind away. If your motto in life is ‘fries before guys’ then it’s about time you try the Mac & Cheese fries. To all the cheese lovers out there, try their crispy cheese balls, which is absolutely a Zephop fav!

Ready for some main course or are you already full? Indulge in some beautiful Penne Arrabbiata Pasta or the perfectly baked Mushroom Pizza. If your tummy still nods a big YES to desserts, slurp into an indulgent Oreo Shake or a Classic Belgian Waffle. This is the best way to earn some Zephop points.

Featured Review – WTF What’s the Flavour

We’ve not featured a place for a while, so it was high time to start talking about a great new place in Nerul called WTF, who have decided to take customer engagement to the next level by partnering with us here at Zephop. WTF opened in January this year and has already become a hotspot in the area. Here’s why…

The location is great as they are located in close proximity to a lot of colleges – those in SIES or DY Patil will know what we’re on about. The ambience is lively and the vibe is great, especially with the quirky art deco wall. It serves as a backdrop to what we think will be great conversations. It is a great place to either go for a quick bite at lunch hour but at the same time it has enough choice on the menu to host a nice dinner as well. WTF is very pocket friendly and the quality of food as well the portion sizes are great. So when it is your turn to pick up the tab, you might want to take your friends here and maybe redeem some of those Zephop points that are burning a hole in your virtual pocket!

They do a lot of great cold drinks and milkshakes as well, and you can redeem some Zephop points on a scrumptious milkshake or iced tea. WTF are well known for their flavour packed burgers and you must also try the Chicken Sandwich (Grilled Cheese/Mayo). These get consistently good reviews. Sides are to die for, take a look at their chilli cheese fries for instance.
