We continue our tour of India and in particular of Bombay. Today I recommend three places where to eat in Mumbai. I will be alternating postcard food to restaurants where I eat side by side with local people. Because there is nothing more beautiful than knowing a place for what it really is.
Where to eat in Mumbai? Because when traveling in India it is also important to try its flavors.
So today we continue our tour to Bombay which started here and I want to suggest three places where to eat in Mumbai.
Last week I told you about the slum (you can read the article here if you missed it) and here I go back to the topic of India also from a food point of view.
These are little places where we have been and we can’t wait to advise you because they represent the right culinary mix.
I will be alternating postcard food to restaurants where I eat side by side with local.
Because there is nothing more beautiful than knowing a place for what it really is.
In choosing where to eat in Mumbai, let’s start with an Indian brewery where you can eat food worthy of the most beautiful photos on Instagram.
The Effingut Brewery is just a short walk from the Gateaway from India. For menu suggestions there is plenty of choice: the important thing is to dare with spices and spicy!
Ready for a full meal? The Symphony Restaurant is the perfect place. We got there thanks to the precious advice of a very kind gentleman who took more than twenty minutes on foot just to accompany us.
As the manager of the Symphony told us “The food produced in this kitchen is created, rather than cooked with a lot of care and attention to detail. The amount of preparation required to create even the most basic dishes is what makes Symphony different. Passion and the energy they put into creating food, makes the experience of eating here linger in your memory. ”
It’s time to switch to desserts: Theobroma is the best in Mumbai. Since its opening in 2004 it has presented a wide variety of cakes and for this reason it has become known: patties, tarts, mousse cakes, cupcakes, biscuits, cheesecake, brownies. But not only that, their range of artisan bread, which includes multigrain, wholemeal flour, garlic and masala, are made exquisitely: they make you want more.
To be honest, I would like to make a small note: the places where to eat in Mumbai were all suggested by locals that Lucio knows … among the suggestions there were also the wonderful restaurants inside the Taj Mahal
but realizing the poverty of this city it seemed really out of place to spend big bucks for a dinner for two when a family would use the same money to live a month.
We have therefore decided to abandon, for this time, the extra luxury and experience the city there. But fear not, if you follow our advice you will be more than satisfied.
