The Tasting Room, Lower Parel, Mumbai

Hungry customers stretching their necks out like turtles, eager to be allotted a place. Every small, medium, large table occupied. Hip youngsters larking around pitcher laden tables. Families lunching in quiet. Waiters scurrying with loaded trays. This is a constant racket at The Tasting Room, an upscale restaurant nestled in the famous Raghuvanshi Mills Compound of Lower Parel. It sits…

Jimmy Boy, Fort

Fort area in Southern Mumbai still oozes its 18th century colonial charm. So does its heritage architecture, streets and its cafes. Nestled in the Horniman Circle area, bang opposite the glorious Asiatic Library and a neighbour to the famous Bademiya is this modest little restaurant called Jimmy Boy. Jimmy Boy is famous for its authentic Parsi…

Persian Darbar, Andheri East

Nothing entices my taste buds as does Moghlai food. Cooked in aromatic spices and fresh herbs, the flavours linger in your mouth even after you are done eating.

Cafe Bean Garu, Powai

Weekends for me are all about treating my taste-buds with a new fare each time. This weekend it was Cafe Bean Garu in Hiranandani, Powai. This place is on the first floor above Haiko supermarket. The cafe is in an open space and close to the elevator. So do not expect too much from the…

Kakori House, Andheri (E)

We’d been planning to celebrate my birthday since last month, and it was only today that we finally made it. After hours of contemplation on where to eat, we thought we would step out and decide at the spur of the moment. So we drove down to Sakinaka, which is now abuzz with a handful…
