What to eat and where


You can't really say you know a place unless you have eaten there. With almost two decades of experience as a food writer in mainstream media, I know quite a bit about the Mumbai food scene. Let me take you on a culinary tour that gives you a glimpse into the wide variety of Indian dishes (a far cry from the ubiquitous 'tikka' and 'curry' that you've probably tried back home!). I can introduce you to the exotic flavours, spices and recipes, suggest the right places to taste these (where the culinary skills and hygiene levels are high).

Whether you want to breakfast like a king, have a lavish lunch, fancy dinner or a shoestring budget snack; whether you're craving something familiar and comforting or something daringly local, come dine with me!

Itinerary

You can pick from the following:

LOW-END, HYPER LOCAL
Some of the best and most authentic food in the city is at tiny joints that have been around for more than 50 years and aren't always in the tourist guide books! A lot of it is vegetarian and regional, but all of it is exciting. Experience Udipi and Maharashtrian cuisines.

MID-RANGE, TRADITIONAL/MODERN INDIAN
There are many wonderful restaurants that showcase the best of Indian cuisine. We could pick a specific regional style or choose a place that offers you a glimpse of many in a more modern format.

TOP-OF-THE-LINE LUXE
While the Michelin guide hasn't come to India, a few chefs with Michelin-starred restaurants have restaurants in Mumbai. A meal at any of these will give you an insight into the chef's brilliance. You could also enjoy high-tea or five-star meals at a number of wonderful venues in luxury hotels or standalone restaurants.

What’s Included

  • Guiding Services

Other: My experience as one of Mumbai's senior food and lifestyle experts.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

2000 INR - Mumbai food can range from an INR 10 dish on the street to INR 10,000 for the most lavish gourmet experience. It's up to you what type of meal you'd like to sample and savour. Rs 1,000 a head is a rough estimate of a meal at a mid-range eatery. If we visit many places, the time and expense would increase exponentially. Local, non a/c cab costs are relatively cheap and should be a maximum of INR 500.

What’s Extra

Other: The cost of the meal, taxi charges throughout the tour. Insurance of any sort is not included in the tour price.
