All the best things to do in Mumbai this weekend
Spoken word poetry performances, monsoon menus and more!
There’s never a dull day in the city of dreams. Here, we curate the best events taking place this weekend so you can make the most of your downtime. Take a friend along, make it a date, or go by yourself—there’s plenty to soak in.
The latest addition to Mumbai’s culinary scene, Seeds of Life is out to give healthy food a delicious makeover. Dig into thin crust pizzas with zoodles (zucchini noodles), quinoa veggie upma, or smoothie bowls. All of its dishes are free from refined sugar and white flour. We recommend the cafe’s dessert range—all of which can be ordered in a vegan and gluten-free version. Pick from a sinful almond blueberry cake, rich chocolate cake and oats and raisins cookies.
