Late Night Culinary Encounters
It’s the wee hours of the morning and ‘the city that never sleeps’ shrugs off its title for the night and dozes off. Go scouting for grub post 12.30AM and chances are you will remain emptier than a politician’s promise as most eateries do a Cinderella – calling it a night before the clock strikes midnight. We at Scootsy decided to play Prince Charming and went scooting around to find you eateries that do not turn into insipid pumpkins post midnight –
Zaffran – Open till 3:40 am
Mulling over last night’s karela ka bhaji? Pop it back in the fridge where some other hapless hunger victim can encounter it and instead check out Zaffran on the Scootsy app. From veggie delights to meat-eater’s fantasies, a tempting selection of desserts neatly rounds off the proceedings.
Must have: Zaffran’s Galouti Kebab and their signature Naanlets
Ayub’s – Open till 2 am
If you have a nocturnal craving for rolls then Scootsy recommends Ayub’s. While they mostly cater to animal lovers (and we mean the kind who devour the aforesaid critters), their roasted mushroom roll gets our veggie vote.
Must have: Mushroom role and the Bheja Gurda Tawa Special
Lucky Restaurant – Open till 1 – 1:30 am
With a menu that extends from breakfast to way, way past sunset, there is something for everyone at Lucky Restaurant even if the length of the menu doesn’t exactly make you want to write home!
Must have: Biryani, caramel custard and phirnis
Moti Mahal – Open till 1 am
A Bandra haunt, if there is heaven, it is here, it is here, it is here! Catering to the Mughali lovers, their extensive menu comfortably decimates post-midnight stomach rumblings.
Must have: Veg and Non-Veg Kebab Platters
Royal China – Open till midnight
Got a yen for the East? Just favourite Royal China on the Scootsy app. Great packaging, speedy delivery and a menu that is stuffed with crispy, stir-fried and wok-tossed yummies makes this a great option. But you’ve got to place your order a bit early since they shut at 12!
Must have: Crispy Duck Spring Roll
Shalimar – Open till 1 am
Confused about what to order? Order individual items on the Scootsy app or just order from Shalimar. From Mughlai and Chinese to pizzas and sizzlers, think it and they probably have it.
Must have: The Raan Biryani
