Mumbai food: Top 3 restaurant picks of the week


While one restaurant in Mumbai gives a rare twist to the traditional thepla, another serves a starter similar to the regional favourite, kothimbir vadi. If you are looking for such delicacies in the city, this list will come to rescue

1. +91: This two-week-old restaurant near Juhu Circle makes an honest but steep attempt to bring India on the plate with jamun martini and recheado tikka. The decor comprising of kitschy lanterns and barnis (pickle jars) will transport you back to your childhood days. From Andhra-style Rasam to Allahabad Beetroot Tikki, Parsi Style Sali Boti, Gondoraj Duck, Kashmiri Gushtaba Goat Curry and Cumin Sikkim Red Rice, the menu covers most of India, though restricted to popular fare. Each dish is accompanied by the area code of the city where it originates from. Onion Bhanavala, a Maharashtrian delicacy, resembles the kothimbir vadi. Other regional dishes like Recheado Murg Tikka, Rajasthani Laal Maas and Rosemary and Olive Naan can be tried to explore the flavours of India. You can wash these dishes down with a glass of Jambhul Karvand Martini, Majjiga or the Andhra-style, thick and spiced buttermilk. The Motichur and Sitaphal Rabdi Parfait served in a Margarita glass is a dessert worth savouring.
Where: Om Satyadeep Apartments, Gulmohar Cross Road 7, JVPD Scheme, Juhu

2. Bogeto Cafe: This all-day vegetarian café in Mumbai Central does well to offer VFM eats and kheema that carnivores may also dig in. With no other food and beverage outlets being located on the cusp of Gilder Lane and Lamington Road, Bogeto Cafe is easy to spot. Thepla Toquitos and Bisse Bille Araancinni are two delicious fusion food items that will make your fusion trail at Bogeto Cafe a success. Heard of veg kheema? If not, then you should plan a visit to Bogeto Cafe. Here, the vegetarian version of Kheema Pao replaces minced mutton with soya. The desserts or shakes may not do much of justice because both the Rasmalai Stack-Up and Pretzella, the cafe’s version of a freak sake take a backseat when it comes to taste.
Where: Jain Lakshmi Mansion, opposite Navjivan Society, Mumbai Central

3. The Bombay Thekka: Located in Andheri, this new resto-bar does little with its food and interiors to appease customers, but may be pocket-friendly for an evening of drinks. The mediocre dishes, unflattering interiors and, to a certain extent, unsatisfying service give less reason to remember this little den located in Andheri. While grilled chicken, pesto risotto and penne pasta will disappoint you with portion sizes, the sundried tomato pizza will make you lament for the lack of tomato in it. What will keep you going at this new eatery are the up-tempo beats. So, if you’re looking to simply enjoy an evening of alcohol, heading for the well-priced cocktails may make a wise choice.
Where: The Bombay Thekka, 244-A, S.V.P. Nagar, Four Bungalows, near Versova Telephone Exchange, Andheri (West)
