Full of gorgeous cityscapes and nature photography, Instagram is also home to the most stunning food photographs. And what better way to explore a city than through its food? Munchy Mumbai leads the way!
Run by two graduate students, Sagar Rupani and Parth Kothari, Munchy Mumbai was created with an aim to be unique in the way it chronicled Mumbai’s food. What sets them apart is the way they promote homemade food — the only professional food blog to do so.
The decision to balance professional and homemade food was tough, but it paid off. Their followers embraced homemade food and started asking for recipes. As passionate food lovers, it is this love that drives them to continue working on the account.
Bakeries such as The Rolling Pin (see above photo) are featured for their innovative delights, like this chocolate pizza topped with marshmallows.
Another popular restaurant, Quattro features as a place that has officially turned up with their ‘favorite dessert,’ the Chocolate Dunkers — chocolate wrapped in baked filo pastry with caramel, green apple caviar, strawberry sauce and lots of chocolate!
The above are delightful cheese-filled fritters from Made In Punjab, one of Mumbai’s most popular Punjabi restaurants. The delightful colors and presentation makes you want to be there, right now!
New and upcoming cafés in Mumbai offer strong competition as far as desserts are concerned. Sample this beautiful baked Philadelphia cheesecake from Momo Café.
The Bistro1 Snackbar‘s barbeque chicken burger looks absolutely inviting and is recommended by Munchy Mumbai as the best spicy chicken burger in town.
Not just high-street, Munchy Mumbai even explores bar food like this combination of galouti (lamb) kebabs paired with mangaa (a cocktail of vodka and raw mango) from Monkey Bar.
Want to experiment? This chicken waffle from Frisbees looks delectable and definitely worth the try!
The traditional homemade delicacies of Mumbai define many festivals and traditions. One such recipe is the modak, made during the celebrations of Ganesh Chaturthi and also featured on the handle.
Nothing marks the conclusion of a hearty meal quite like a chilled kulfi. This one from Quarter House is both a culinary and visual delight.
The food scouting is complete with street food like the misal pav from Ladu Samrat — comfort food for so many Mumbaikars!
