The Newly Opened Hungry Head at Ghatkopar has some of the Best Maggi Creations.

My experiments with Maggi started by adding knobs of butter and slices of cheese to it, later it moved on to adding caramelized onions, fried paneer or chicken to it. However, this place takes their maggi preparations to a whole new level.

Located a stones throw away from my Alma Mater, Somaiya, this place is bound to attract several college going students alone with the locals of Ghatkopar. After multiple visits to their Powai outlet, I was curious to see what the second outlet of Hungry Head had in store.

We began by trying out some of their basic Maggi Preparations and went for the Picadilla Maggi, Thai Curry Maggi, Aglio E Olio Maggi and my favorite fro their previous outlet –  Khow Suey Maggi. While the other three are still delicious, their Khow Suey Maggi still remains my favorite dish.

To beat the summer heat along with the heat from the spices, we decided to try out some of their drinks and ended up trying almost all of them. Starting off with their Thick Shakes – Chocolate, Mast Melon, Snickers, Shahi Mango and Berry Delight, then to a few Coolers, Mojitos and Iced Teas. While we loved all of them, their Thick Shakes were the best of the lot.

Next we moved on to more complex maggi preparations, their Maggi Sizzler and Oye Punjabi Magizza. Both of which seem nice but failed to impress, especially the sizzler, more show than flavor or taste.

We then moved on to their specialty fries and blooming bread, which is their version of a Pull-apart bread. Chili Cheese Garlic and Honey Chili were the toppings we went for, while the toppings were delicious, the quality of fries were very average, the dishes could have been much better. The Blooming Bread is another dish that I dislike as it is more gimmick and less taste, while the first few bites are good, the rest of the dish is plain dry bread. Not recommended by me even though many people may like it.

Finally for desserts we had their Sizzling Brownie and Chocolava Cake with Ice Cream, both of them were quite nice but the Chocolava was a hint better. We ended with a round of Paan, Coffee and Bubble Gum shots. The paan and coffee are quite nice but the bubble gum could be avoided.

Overall this place is worth a try for maggi lovers, after all it is an iconic product that you can’t avoid whether you love it, hate it or even ban it! Maggi is here to stay!

Hungry Head, Powai

Even though I can’t cook much, I always love experimenting with Maggi Noodles. This place takes it to a whole new level. Hungry Head is a Dream Come True for any Maggi Lover (including me).

Located opposite Nirvana Park in Hiranadani, Powai, Hungry Head is a tiny outlet with outdoor seating. I visited a couple of nights ago and the October heat was getting to me. So to beat the heat we began with a round of Coolers, I ordered a Kiwi Ice Tea as I had never tasted that before. Sadly, my order was either mixed up with a regular Ice Tea or the Kiwi Ice Tea just didn’t have any hint of Kiwi in it. It was refreshing but a little disappointing. I also tasted their Jeera Twister and Green Apple Mojito. The Mojito was good and packed a punch, but the Jeera Twister was very mild.

Next we had their Khow Suey Maggi, which is by far the best combination of Maggi Noodles and additional flavor I have ever had. Absolutely Delicious and Strongly recommended. We also had a plate of fries with various dips, some of the dips were quite average and difficult to distinguish between but the Chili Garlic Dip was to die for, it gave a good kick the moment you taste it. The fries were good too.

The Mexican roll was next, a decent dish, good flavor but nothing extraordinary. The next dish however was something I wanted to try out.. A Maggi Sizzler!! An interesting concept, to serve Maggi on a Sizzling Hot Plate, full marks for innovation, but not for the execution. The maggi on the bottom was charred, maybe another layer of lettuce would help. While I liked the Maggi and Fries, I didn’t like the sauce it was served with, too much salt in it. The Kofta Balls were my favorite part of the sizzler. Another suggestion is that you don’t serve plastic spoons and forks with a Sizzler.

Down to the final dish, and the most talked about..their Blooming Bread. We went for the Aglio e Olio topping. The dish is basically a large bun sliced and stuffed with Cheese and other toppings, it does look quite picture perfect when you pull out the pieces. Sad part is that we waited a good 20 minutes for it, speaking of which, the service was the biggest con at Hungry Head. Slow and inattentive, we had to get up several times and walk up to the counter for extra tissues and forks. However a decent experience overall.

The Khow Suey Maggi was definitely the best Incarnation of Maggi I have ever come across and the dish that made my day. Worth a try!
