Mumbai food: Top 3 restaurant picks of the week


This week seems to have done justice to the Indian and Parsi food. From Awadhi cuisine to egg variants, several new restaurants in the city are offering delicious fares, which are perfect to tantalize your taste buds with during the weekend.

Mumbai food: Top 3 restaurant picks of the week
1. Basanti: The menu has a distinct bent towards Awadhi cuisine. Chef de Cuisine Salim Qureshi of the famed Qureshi gharana brings family recipes and secret ingredients to Basanti. In Galawat ke Kebab, the lamb is cooked to so much perfection that the medallions will melt in your mouth, while the spices will tantalise our taste buds. The Nihari Gosht consists of generous proportion of lambs and makes for another good non-vegetarian option. While vegetarian dishes like Bhindi Naintara and Paneer Do Pyaza are comfort picks, the slow cooked Dal Ek Khaas happens to be a major hit. One of the striking items on the menu card is the paan. Ice Paan, Fire Paan, Vanilla Paan, Pineapple Paan and Butterscotch Paan, the man behind the pan counter has a lot to offer.
Where: 7/11, Meera Apartments, Juhu Versova Link Road, Seven Bungalows, Andheri West

2. Ministry of Eggs: This is a new egg-centric quick service restaurant located in the food court of a mall in Ghatkopar. Here, the menu is a delight to all egg lovers. The Egg Lasan Kachchu is a unique offering at this food outlet. The French Toast Sandwich Egg Rolls are perfect mess free bites. On the other hand, Parsi favourites Salli Par Edu and Akuri on buttered toast make for a good start to the egg trail. Egg Paaplet, Egg Lahori and Egg Mamna are three other offbeat delicacies that are worth savouring at the outlet.
Where: Third floor, R City Mall, Ghatkopar West

3. Monkey Bar: This restaurant in Mumbai makes its mission to serve breakfast anytime of the day, and by night. Dubbed Breakfirst Plus, this Sunday-only, all-day brekkie bonanza is a feast with a twist! One of their big-ticket dishes is Lord Cubbon’s Vice, a traditional English breakfast. Egg lovers can dig into the EggHead section that offers everything from scrambled eggs to their interpretation of the Parsi staple — Curried Akuri with Malabari Paratha. For those who prefer a saccharine-heavy breakfast, there’s always Cinnamon and Toffee Pancakes along with French toast. The menu also offers perfect hangover cures with signature breakfast cocktails like the Bloody Monkey, and thick shakes and fresh juices.
Where: Monkey Bar, Summerville, junction of 14th and 33rd road, Bandra West.

It’s a long weekend and any long weekend is incomplete without a feast. Take your pick and drive to the joints for an ultimate food trail in the city.
