Indian pizza - Mumbai

Indian pizza

???: Indian pizza...

If you feel like having a pizza, reach Churchgate Station and soon after the Tea Centre, the first restaurant cooking pizza is the place for you... sorry I cannot remember the name but its pizza was really good: I even made compliments to the cooks behind the pizza counter as their pizza dough was in the perfect Italian style.
And... you can choose an Indian topping for it: simply order the Indian pizza which is with chicken and of course chilli pepper!

Directions: near Churchgate Station

biryani... - Mumbai
Noorani's Restaurant: biryani... INDIAN (MOGHLAI) Review

Favorite Dish: The Noorani's Restaurant has ended to be the last tip only because I had here my good bye meal before the flight to Europe but if you like biryani, it's the place for you.
I tasted excellent mutton biryani, chicken biryani and the butter chicken with rotis - the trick is to take each one a different dish and share them.
For starter masala papads and for dessert the firni (made of milk, sugar and rice).

Address: at Haji Ali opposite Heera Panna Shopping Center

coffee... - Mumbai
Barista: coffee... OTHERS Review

Favorite Dish: I was said Barista is a coffee shops chain and compared to India prices it was expensive but its chocolate cake (59 rupee = about 1 euro a slice) was gorgeous and my cafe mocha with whipped cream (50 rupee = about 0.90 euro) seemed with perfectly made Italian coffee so if are a coffee addict, enter one of these shops, it's also perfect if you need a relaxing stop when you are tired of walking or outside the tropical sun is too hot...

delightful Parsi food - Mumbai
Jimmy Boy: delightful Parsi food INDIAN (MOGHLAI) Review

Since when I had read aadil's tip about Jimmy Boy Parsi restaurant, I had told him that the day I would have gone to Mumbai, he had to bring me there...

The food is served on a banana leaf like during Parsi wedding and as my host seemed to have a freemasonry relationship with the owner of the restaurant :-P, we also got the special pot they use during wedding to make you wash your hands after eating...

For those who want to know about my mention of freemason, wouldn't you think the same if you stand up from your seat at the table trying to go and offer the meal and the owner, who had never turned once to aadil nor he to him, tells you that everything is already done and he only wants you to sign his guests book...????

The owner I'm speaking about is the one in my pic with his guests book on his left and the meal here was definitely my best one in Mumbai!!!!

Favorite Dish: I would heartily advice the non veg. Lagan Nu Bhonu menu:
Saas ni Macchhi OR
Patra ni Macchhi OR
Tareli Macchhi
- they are all various fish dishes served in different sauces
Salli Margi
- chicken with a gravy and peppered with thinly grated fried potatoes, the Salli OR
Margi Na Farcha
- battered chicken pieces fried in eggs
Chicken or Mutton Pulao with Dhansak Dal
- meat dishes

Address: Vikas Bldg., 11, Bank Street

Directions: opposite State bank of India - Hornimon Circle, Fort

tea and not only... - Mumbai

tea and not only...

Tea Centre: tea and not only... OTHERS Review

There is lots to say about the Tea Centre as it can be a place for breakfast, dinner, a nice cup of tea - it has a yummy choice of sweet stuff to come with the tea - for a snack, for buying tea in the nearby shop...
It's a place with a refined atmosphere but not high-falutin (just in case you had linked this impression to my use of refined ;-)...) and of the four times I entered it, for three of them an extra kind lady with such a welcoming smile was at the entrance to head you to your table.

Favorite Dish: A main dish like Gosht Hariyal (mutton with a green gravy), Macchi Rai Tamatar (fish in tomato sauce) costs 135-155 rupee (2-3 euros) and a delicious dessert, mine was a local fruit soufflé, 50 rupee (less than 1 euro), about 350 rupee (6 euros) for a whole meal with for example Dal Tadka (lentil gravy), Raita (don't forget it, if you want an help for the too hot food), Chapatti (local bread), dessert and drinks. For the India average it's an expensive place but Mumbai is more expensive than other towns and so is this restaurant compared to others anyway it's really worth it.

With the tea, if you have a sweet tooth like me, you can choose scones, served with jam and cream, or an apple pie or a chocolate cake and if you prefer a saulty snack, you can order a very nice mixed fry, only pay attention not to bite (I did and not on purpose!!!) a chilli pepper: it's the thinnest and longer of the vegetables covered with a watery dough and fried.

And for the tea lovers you can get fine tippy golden flowery Orange Pekoe that you find on the menu as pure Darjeeling FTGFOP, pure Assam leaf tea, green tea, Oolong tea, Nilgiri, tea, Kashmiri Kawha tea, flavoured teas and a tea pot considered for two is enough also for three - infact on the menu you can choose among a single cup, a teapot for two or for six.

Mondegar Cafe: coffee and cartoons OTHERS Review

Favorite Dish: The Mondegar Cafe was the very first Indian restaurant I stepped in and it was twice my destination for breakfast for which you can get both Indian and continental options, fresh fruit juices, tea, coffee served by a very friendly staff.

On its walls murals, which I tried to catch in my pic, of a famous cartoonist, Mario Miranda.
