As the only major food reviewers in Mumbai stupid enough to actually visit the places we write about, we at The Bombay Report have had our fair share of experiences in the wild. Though many accuse us of skipping town solely to escape our creditors, the real reason we spend so much time in the uncharted wilderness of the Eastern suburbs is simply our love for adventure. While most trips end up with us having to mediate disputes between Derrick the Intern and the native population, every now and again, we stumble upon exciting new places previously unknown to science. And sometimes, if we’re really lucky, they turn out to be amazing. Today, we present you with a list of the three best restaurants we’ve discovered from lands unknown:
Krishna Resto Bar, Thane
Krishna Resto Bar would without a doubt be among the top ten seafood restaurants in Bombay, if it actually were in Bombay. This charming, coastal themed eatery, is a fully functional seafood restaurant, that’d only recently recently won a liquor license; so don’t let the name fool you. Despite being located on the sixth floor of what appears to be an office building, serves up some of the finest Tisriya we’d ever encountered, while their Bombil Fry is virtually uncontested. With alcohol prices that rival dive bars in Bandra, a beautiful view, and the soothing music of Bach playing on the speakers, you can’t help but feel like you’re in heaven.
It’s still in Thane though. THANE.
Pure Milk And Snacks Centre, Ghatkopar East
On Instagram, there’s food-porn, and then there’s the degenerate pictures of food people upload at Pure Milk And Snacks Centre. This unassuming stall; that can only be reached by the bravest of crusaders, has perhaps the widest selection of street food imaginable, which even the adventurous among you will feel queasy just looking at. There’s no denying that the food you get here; especially their Pav Bhaji Dosa and Schezwan Cheese Masala Dosa, is as delicious as it is aesthetically pleasing. But as far as roadside dining goes, it’s also absurdly expensive for anything but a one-time experiment.
Modern Lunch Home, Sion
Not too long ago, at a restaurant called Modern, The Bombay Report was conceived by two friends who like to talk about themselves in the third person. They were inspired by the delicious fried prawns that this obscure little eatery was able to produce, and vowed to spread this good news to the people of Bombay. Here they are, four years later, desperately trying to get famous on Instagram. Modern Lunch Home and their incredible fried food will always hold a special place in our hearts, or at least coronary arteries. To this day, it remains one of our favourite seafood restaurants in Mumbai, with unparalleled Crab Chilli Fry, and excellent Bombil.
Were you offended by this article calling Sion an unknown land? Do you know someone who lives in Thane? Are you from Ghatkopar East? If you answered yes to any of the above, message us Instagram and we’ll be sure to get back to you with our sincerest condolences.
