Celebrating Mumbai…

Where: Soam, Opposite Babulnath temple, Chowpatty, Mumbai

It’s when you taste the regional specialities that you realise what a wealth of cuisines India has to offer. Vegetarian, Maharashrian,Gujarati and South Indian food, the kind you imagine your grandmother would have cooked.

Fresh, tasty and unique, served in brass thalis, food that makes you nostalgic for the old world, where ghee and home made pickles would accompany every meal.

Faral: Food eaten during/to break a fast

Farsan: Snacky, anytime eats.

Thalipeeth: Multigrain roti with onion, cumin and coriander seeds

Pitla: Gram flour and fenugreek leaf ‘curry’

Rava Masala Dosa: made in heaven?

Imagine, a perfectly spiced, tangy sambar,  a sweet, nutty coconut chutney, a crisp dosa, pebbled with crunchy sweet oinions, oozing sweet white butter.

Don’t imagine - just head for the Sea Lounge @ the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai.

My breakfast Dosa, is crunchier than yours! Outstanding south Indian fare at the Sea Lounge, Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai.

Where: Bademia Kebab, Colaba

Located conveniently round the corner from Cafe Mondegar and Leopold Cafe, this kebab joint hits the spot.

We ate: Mutton Baida Rotibaida  meaning egg. Crisp, crunchy, eggy, meaty - truly divine. Eat on newspapers, spread on the bonnet of a car.

Just the thing after a couple of beers. travel is expanding our stomach, but at this point even we had to stop.

Cafe Mondegar: the hotspot for chilled beer and bar food, decorated with Mario Miranda’s famous cartoon, this place has beer, buzz, booze and bar food. A great place to go for a fun evening.

Fries with cheese, cheese balls, fish fingers, chicken and chips, chilly cheese toast - love ‘em! oh, yes! Theres some stuff for vegetarians too, and the usual ‘mughlai/chinese’ staples.

Tea@ the Taj. 

Evening Tea at the Sea Lounge is a genteel re-creation of the past played out for our benefit every evening from 3:30 onwards. Endless variety of food, including chaat, signature teas and coffee. The gentle clink of cutlery is counter point to the piano playing '…my favourite things'  which very well could include Tea@the Taj.

Have a scone with clotted cream, m’dear and pass me the rasberry preserves…arrey dahi batata puri toh kha lo!
