In Mumbai sun is getting brighter, the weather is getting unbearably warmer, humidity is at an all time high and we are finding ways and means to keep ourselves cool.
Summer is all about smaller meals and lots of icy cool drinks. Here is a list of new menus and specials in some of the most loved Mumbai Restaurant’s
Bonobo – Bandra
Top on the list for various reasons. Love the casual vibe. They have wonderful open air space which can get quite warm during summer. The owners have always been creative,whether it’s the kind of music gigs they host or the kind of food they serve.
Their new menu which has lots of diversity in terms of cuisine , yes its bar food with loads of comfort.
Must try The Woks , Jungle Curry with Pineapple Rice , Pao with Gravy and for that extra sweetness they have Nutella Pav . All this can be paired with a glass of chilled beer from Gateway Brewery.
Sancho’s – Khar and Colaba
One of my loved cuisine is Mexican and the days when I feel lazy ( which is most of the time ;) ) have no inclination of making Mexican at home,I end up at Sancho’s.
Their Fiesta Nachos , Potato skins, Qusadillias and Fajitas are a few of my liked dishes. Also recommend Tlayudas which is a Mexican Baked Pizza topped with beans, pico, charred corn, generous portions of avocado, sour cream, lime, pimentos plus lots of cheese and garnished cilantro. Yes yum and you can pair this with a chilled pitcher of sangria.
Recently Sancho’s have introduced small plates, which gives customers a chance to try a wider variety of food from their awesome menu. They are also hosting The Mexican Chile and Margarita Festival, which runs until the 31st May.
Spotted this picture of Mango Popsicles on Instagram, so good looking and one of the best summer indulgent desserts.
Dome – Intercontinental Marine Drive
Located at the Intercontinental Marine Drive this one has the breathtaking view of the Arabian Sea.
Popular for their Sunday Sundowner’s The Dome has put together a Melange Mojito Menu. This one would be available from the 26th April ’15 – 5th May ’15.
The menu offers some unusual combinations like the mango jalapeño mojito , green tea mojito and the sparkling mojito, which is a mix of sparkling wine with fresh lime and mint with a dash of light rum. Sounds very refreshing and the ultimate beat the heat drink.
Watch the beautiful sunset with an icy cool glass of mojito, the best way to end the long summer day.
