A few years ago, mom & I trekked through an unfamiliar part of Khar West to find a (then) newly opened French patisserie & tea house.
Even though Mumbai is a large metropolis, I’ve always bemoaned the lack of truly multicultural cuisine in Mumbai. There are tons of themed placed – Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French but most of the dishes are heavily adapted to suit local tastes. It makes good business sense, but you never truly get authentic world food.
This place was different. Sure, it was charming. But the food was really authentic too! We stuck to desserts on our visit, & I had the best half and half mint choco chip macarons & banoffee pie ever. 🍌
As luck would have it, the place sadly closed a couple of months after. These photos have been lying on my computer for a few years – it’s high time I shared them here, even if it’s just for a e s t h e t i c s.
Is there any restaurant or eatery you’ve been to just once, but you have fond (or unique) memories of? I definitely fondly remember places I’ve eaten at while travelling & sometimes I look them up years later to see if they’re still around. x
