Mumbai foodies, heads up on 3 new restaurants you’re going to love
These are as different as they come
Food-hop down Asia’s ancient Grand Trunk Road at Bandra Kurla Complex’s latest eatery, where the menu serves dishes from the regions the famous road passes through: gushtaba from Kashmir, melt-in-your-mouth galouti kebabs from Lucknow, egg-laced fish cutlets from Bengal, and of course, the leavened zafrani taftoon too. Don’t leave without sampling the dessert menu. ELLE loved the Chena sampler packed with delicious Bengali sweets in bite-sized portions.
At: Naman Centre, G Block, Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai
La Folie Du Chocolat
Chocolatier and patissier Sanjana Patel’s latest is dedicated to her love for the cacao bean. The new Kala Ghoda space celebrates all things chocolate: bonbons, pastries, tarts, you name it. Stop by and pick up a box of assorted goodies if you’re used to siding with your sweet tooth. The French dark chocolate Palet d’Or and rich Bolivian single origin ganache will make your day.
At: 16 Commerce House, Ropewalk Lane, Kala Ghoda, Mumbai
Restaurateur Farrokh Khambata’s revamped Nariman Point space (formerly, Amadeus) teams local produce with Thai and Malay flavours, and uses the Japanese Robata style of cooking to introduce a whole new cuisine. On the cards? Aburi pork ribs, Hokkaido corn and clay pot rice.
At: National Centre For The Performing Arts, Nariman Point, Mumbai
