Top 10 Food places I miss in Mumbai

(Notes about the places I miss in Mumbai. Obviously there are many more, but these are my top 10, not just because of the food, but because of the memories and associations I have with some people.)

  1. Madras Cafe (King’s Circle) - Waiting with 10 others for breakfast at 650am... upma... idli-rasam... coffee... the ability to reach 150 per head even with their prices... favourite veggie place...
  2. Penne (Juhu) - All you can eat, all you can drink for 1200+taxes... Awesome cold-cuts and salads... thin-crust pizza... Getting really high on a Sunday afternoon...
  3. Toto’s (Bandra) - Where everybody knows your name... Dumb-charades... pork sausages... kheera gajar ka salad... Tapan bringing JD with coke with a slice of lime without me having to ask for it... Bhonpu’s drink... the same playlist... (including keema-pao too)
  4. Not Just Jazz (Marine Drive) - The live band... the next best thing – a live band setting up and jamming before they start at 10... a nice steak... Sangria...
  5. Hard Rock Cafe (Lower Parel) - Five-figure bills... Not having the same drink twice... Watching “One Night Stand” live...
  6. Mondegar (Colaba) - The light beer... Breakfast brunch... the Jukebox... Mario Miranda’s frescos...
  7. Just Around The Corner (Bandra) - The mountain salad buffet... healthy, filling, and there for you at midnight... freshly made sandwiches and burgers...
  8. Pot Pourri (Bandra) - Penne pasta with chicken in cheese sauce... the best back-up place when we run out of ideas... Ordering wine the first night they start serving it, and asking them to buy from outside when they ran out...
  9. Naturals (anywhere) - Sitafal, tender coconut, chickoo, mango... Beats the hell out of Gelato, doesn’t it?...
  10. Theobroma (Colaba) - Food of the Gods... white chocolate, vodka and green chilli mousse cake...
