Go out of your way
There is the fourth category…those who love to read about it. This blog is for all four types…coz it will get the haters converted, indifferent lot excited and most of all I look forward to feedback from all of you.
Strains of Kenny Gs music fill the pleasant and calming unpretentious space with its wooden beamed high ceiling. A tiny plaque informs that the air conditioners have been donated by “Prerna charitable trust”. A counter with a few puffs and pastries, wooden tables and chairs complete the décor of this Gamdevi eatery.
Please Take a look at the photograph…the 18 year old well-trained and spruced server, Janki was only a few years ago begging on VT station. Along with many others not only was she given a home, but also trained to cook and serve. Helpful service but it can get slow…(I’m told the food is cooked from scratch.)
I love Parsi food and rue the fact that Mumbai has only two and a half Parsi food eateries and wait for Tanaz Godiwala’s catering at Lagan nu bhonus. At “By the way” though there is Indian (bhuna gosht-palak paneer et al) Continental (pasta, pizza, sandwiches) chaat (okayish sev puri) theres a complete Parsi menu… from Bharuchi Akuri to Lagan nu custard. I ate here twice. Tehmtan Dumasia supervises the girls ensuring that the authentic ingredients are used to the correct proportions.
Avoid the puffs (kutcha pastry), the lousy espresso coffee, the medicinal palak paneer. Slushy in masala Bhuna gosht, overcooked and
tough Roast chicken, watery carrot soup here. Skip all that and focus on the decent Parsi menu. Snacks are over-fried and uninspired. Pastries need finetuning.(Good apple-pie). No alcohol.
Hygienic veg and non-veg kitchens. Go to this unique eatery for homestyle Parsi food. Reasonably priced (Rs 700 for two) and served in a comfy, non-fussy, ambience makes it an ideal quiet open through the day ( 11am to 11pm) meeting place.
There’s parking in the compound too. All thanks to the ladies of the managing committee and the women of
Seva Sadan who work here. Eat here…support a great cause, enjoy the cuisine with a cause.
Timing: 11 am to 11pm
