Book of Best 10 Bombay Brunches

spicysaturday

I am going to enjoy each and every dish/ restaurant/ cafe that I mention in this particular blog post for the simplest of reasons that I love Bombay and I love Brunches! Dil ki awaaz (ankh mein aansun, khushi ke…)

Even though I am not from Bombay but have been travelling to this vivacious city so often that I treat it like my own now. Gives me an added advantage of going to only the awesomest food places B-)

Of course I’ve been quite shamelessly vocal about my undying love for brunches. If you like to walk in to a restaurant still slightly sleepy with your shades on, sit in open air with just the right amount of sunlight and pastel shades all around you, sipping a fizzy drink or sangria and have a peaceful chat with your friends then you will understand.

I am lazy, like to sleep till late, love Sundays and I LOVE FOOD, hence proved, brunches are my favourite meal of the day!

L.H.S. = R.H.S. (Ghissu I tell you!)

Let’s start it off then, so that by the end of this you have enough and more choices to select from. No need to waste your precious Sunday energy in searching for good places, go invest that time in sleeping some more :

  1. SmokeHouse Deli, Bandra

Taking it easy the right way 😉 I like the happy sunshine vibe of this place. Eggs florentine with hash browns and baked tomato and finishing it off with the ohh so light, ohh so fluffy – Lemon flavoured Panna Cotta.

2. Pali Village Cafe, Bandra

Simple joys of life. Sitting at the corner table on the first floor where you can see everyone but not everyone can see you 🙂 with sunny side up and a cup of coffee while it rains outside. I love this place not the energetic kind of love but the calming and comfortable one.

3. Sassy Spoon, Bandra

Think Sassy Spoon, think brunch date! And at the end of the day walk out with a pack of fresh poye – Goan Paav.

4. The Pantry, Colaba

If it’s not runny then it’s not good eggs florentine. That golden yolk, that garlic bread with Pondicherry cheese and that mushroom bechamel sauce. Brunch ne macha di!

Ohh bwoy this mango cheesecake!

One more new place for Cheesecake and the obsession continues… And that too with mango on the top! *joy just came* no no not you Joy… Tch tch tch .

6. Kala Ghoda Cafe, Kala Ghoda Fort, SoBo

When I go veg, I go ‘hell yeah’ veg! And this was yummy ki mummy :O
Marinated zucchini, brinjal, peppers; stacked up, topped with cheddar and roasted. Served with fresh green salad. Gobbled with ABC (Apple, beetroot, carrot)

The place like many other in the bylaws of Bombay, is just about small and cozy with people enjoying their carrot cakes with coffee.

Pulled pork in brioche, mini lamb burger, Belgian pork cordon bleu, bouef bourguignon, seared rawas and Melon Sangria to keep us from losing our senses just on food 😀

8. Tertulia, Shivaji Park

Brilliantly apparent in-your-mouth taste of meat in this thick sauce Lamb ragout was glorious! Red wine sangria to seal the deal 😉 Also known as the best restaurant in Pune.

9. The BirdSong Cafe, Hill Road, Bandra

Who said organic food is tasteless?! Spicy Chicken Curry with brown rice, Mutton Stew and the must try Khichda i.e. broken wheat with mutton. Have some green tea after all that 😛
