This month, a slew of new restaurants and cafes have made their debut on the Scootsy app. Here’s a round-up of the top ones.
- Soi 69
Serving Thai and Japanese delicacies in the heart of South Bombay, Soi 69 is town’s new favourite hangout spot. The Breach Candy establishment has everything from soups, donburi, sushi, rice, noodles, salads, mains, and curries. We’d definitely recommend you try the Miso Soup; the Chicken Yakitori Skewer; the Kappa Maki Roll; the Spicy Crispy Pork; and the Yaki Udon. Order from Soi 69 here.
- Miss T
An Asian fine-dining restaurant in Colaba, it was started by a team comprising the who’s who of South Mumbai’s food industry – Pankil Shah, Sumit Gambhir, and Abhishek Honawar (of Woodside Inn, The Pantry, and Bombay Vintage fame), along with Gauri Devidayal and Jay Yousuf (of The Table and Magazine St Kitchen).
In addition, Bawmra Jap, of Bomra’s in Goa, has been brought on to the Asian restaurant as a consulting chef, where the food is a delicious mix of the Asian Golden Triangle, as well as Burma and Vietnam.
While all the food here is lip-smacking, we particularly love their Pickled Tea Leaf Salad; Bomra’s Tomato Salad; Crispy Red Snapper Rolls; Wok Tossed Purple Eggplant; Steamed Mud Crab; Cold Soba Noodles; and Bomra’s Rice & Noodle Salad. Order from Miss T here.
- The Quarter
With an impressive Lousiana Creole-inspired menu, The Quarter serves up some lip-smacking fare for those looking for some unique tastes. Pick from their salads, finger food, burgers, and small and large plates. We’d go for the Classic Nachos; the Legendary Burger; the Pearl Barley Risotto; and more. Order from The Quarter here.
Don’t feel like dealing with the Mumbai traffic, but really need that cup of Joe? It’s Starbucks coffee to the rescue. Now you can order in their range of coffees, as well as snacks and desserts right at your doorstep. Pick from the muffins, sandwiches, pastries, teacakes, wraps, salads, and more on offer. From the decadent Caramel Java Chip Frappuccino and the Caffe Mocha to the Spicy Chicken Pita and Butter Croissant Sandwich, you’ll get it all. Order from Starbucks here.
- Mia Cucina
Literally meaning ‘My Kitchen’, this Italian bistro serves up some scrumptious dishes. From salads, soups and antipasti to pizzas, pastas and sandwiches, all the food at this bistro is fresh and wholesome. Depending on your hunger level, choose from dishes such as Insalata Gorgonzola; Polenta E Pollo Spiedini; Pizza Meaty; Peperonata Alla Campagnola; and Tiramisu. Order from Mia Cucina here.
