This Spanish restaurant in Mumbai is going to be your go-to brunch spot

Luca Kitchen & Bar promises sumptuous food that'll have you singing the Macarena

Much as you like to scoff at the term FOMO, we know that Kareena Kapoor Khan’s perfect brunch snaps with her glam squad aren’t doing much to help your hungover disposition on Monday mornings. Assuming you don’t want to be nominated the office grouch, take a preventive measure by penciling in a visit to Luca Kitchen & Bar, Mumbai this weekend.

The Hispanic food joint hits you with all the subtlety of a hurricane once you step in: Funky armchairs in an explosion of pop colours, classic chequered floor tiles and bright floral prints lovingly frame a 10-foot high Frida Kahlo mural. Likewise, the cuisine does a merry tango from Mexican to spicy Caribbean, ending with traditional South American.

The sunny eatery is a labour of love of by restaurateurs Abhishek Soparkar, Sidharth Matta and Davindar Arora. Probe them about the choice of a feminist icon right at the entrance, and they simply explain, “Luca with its infinite ceiling, bold lighting and surrealistic feel and colours resembles Frida’s artwork which is a mix of surrealism and reality. You might as well have stepped into one of her colourful self-portraits after walking into Luca.”

So what should make the cut for your prized Instagram food-fies? Luckily, we already went scouting and here are our tried-and-tested favourites.
