Before I start this post a small warning that some food pictures may make you drool profusely. Being a passionate foodie I love discovering new food places in Bandra. In the past I stumbled upon some cool , swanky and interesting places. And that’s not all, they offer you a food experience more than just food on a platter….
Will take you through a food tour of each place, an easier ways to get acquainted with these Bandra eateries .
1.The English Department
Have you ever dined in a place that made you feel like you have traveled out of the country? I felt like I had traveled to good old England to see the Queen when I visited The English department.
The place is located just off linking Road, Level 2, Kenilworth Shopping Arcade. Perfect for a meal break after some heavy duty shopping.
The interiors are done up in the same colour; hues of red and brown and dim lighting. Comfortable cushioned circular sofas to dine over conversations. A model replica of the London bridge could be easily spotted over the bar counter that stands tall at the end of the restaurant. You will hear a mix of Hindi/English music that can be enjoyed while digging into some delectable bar food.
A blend of different cuisines on the food menu, some of dishes are typical English.
Veg/Non veg Pizzas, Thai curry rice, Shepherd’s pie, Jacket baked potatoes, Welsh rarebit, fish n chips.
I’ve eaten a lot of Biryani. And I can safely say that no two Biryanis that you’ll eat from different homes or different restaurants will be the same. Each Biryani comes with its own set of ingredients and spices, that have been mastered over a course of time, after careful trial and error in the kitchen.
Bandra just got blessed with Bombay Biryani paradise in simple word.
Being a bandraite and a regular shopper at Bazaar road, I was thrilled to see the new signage of BOMBAY BIRYANI , situated in the Balaji lane that leads to bazaar road. 12-A, Bazaar Road, Hill Road, Bandra West
Looks small from the outside but it has comfortable seating, good vibe, music and lighting for food photography. No fancy dining here but value for money.
The menu is a treat for non vegetarians however it is loaded with options for vegetarians.
Everything on the menu can be enjoyed with a Pallonji Rasberry Soda. 🙂
3.Taj Mahal Tea House
A colonial bungalow that is now converted into a tea house. I guarantee you’ll feel like you have been transported into another era.
The interiors are homely and comforting yet vintage and artistically done. The twinkling lights and Zakir Hussains Tabla display cannot be missed. I couldn’t get enough of this place, I have to visit again real soon.
Located near the Mount Mary Steps bang opposite Good old Bungalow 9.
36-A, Ground Floor, Sanatan Pereira Bungalow, St. John Baptist Road, Reclamation.
From Chocolatey teas to Lemon grass teas each and every kind is a superhit.
I strongly recommend the Matcha Rose tea and Kulfi dessert Chai.
The total package for a office lunch, cozy date or fun Friday night. Craftbar caters to all. Check out some more details below.
Just a hop, skip and jump from the main Bandra scene, prominent location in BKC . Hallmark Business Plaza, Sant Dyaneshwar Marg, Near Chetna College, Kalanagar, Bandra East.
The ambience is cheerful, cool and fresh. It has very simple and elegant decor with very good seating space available both outside and inside.
The highlight of this place is the bar and food menu, its so interesting and well presented. With some innovative dishes and quirky drinks to choose from.
Food: Glassy Classy Salad, tandoori Momos, Lord of the wings, The English Vinglish dessert.
Drinks: Clean Bold, Dum Maro Dum and a whole lot of interesting names on the menu.
5. Kettle and Keg
This new place Kettle and Keg is owned by Mr. Dev Gill and his wife. It is a great place to hangout with family and friends. I was so happy to have stumbled on a gem like Kettle and Keg in my vicinity.
Kettle and keg is a minute walk from Dominoes, Khar at Shop 1, Celeste Building, Plot 470, Kinchin CHS, 14th Road, a minute walk from Dominoes, Khar.
A dainty looking café, loved the yellow lighting. Comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. The bar is very well decorated, warm, vibrant, and inviting with colourful bottles, pop art, and quirky light fixtures.
The fusion food and some of their signature dishes have to be tried at any cost. A great variety of teas for the tea lovers( straight from the kettle)
Food: The Misal Pau with a twist, cheese Lamb Burger, Chapli kababs and Peanut butter pie.
Drinks: Dont miss their Cinnamon Chai Latte, Green apple float and the whopping Freaky Ferraro Shake
So add this to your restaurants to visit bucket list for 2017. Feast with all your senses and don’t count calories.
Bon Appitite everyone!!
