We picked Gresham Fernandes’ brain for his list of Bombay food recommendations, and then slowly worked our way through them. Don’t do what we did and attempt them all in one day, but here is everything you need to know, and everything you need to eat. Panjabi Prawns Fry at Jai Jawan in Khar
Solkadi and the Surmai thali at Jai Hind in Pali
Kebabs and khameeri roti at Byculla’s Sarvi
Kheema at Hindustan Restaurant (Masjid Bunder), Paramount (Mahim), or Stadium (Churchgate)
All sorts of Goan fare at Colaba’s New Martin Hotel
Mughlai everything at Rajasthan in Khar
Lunch at Duke’s in Bandra
Mutton Pattis from the American Express bakery in Bandra
And if you’re looking to cook up a storm in the comfort of your own home, Mirchi Galli and Saria Stove Depot in Crawford Market should meet all your kitchen needs.
