Start your day with breakfast at JW Café at JW Marriott, Juhu – simply the best breakfast option in the city. After that move towards south Mumbai and check out some of the famous galleries in town – NGMA, Jahangir Art Gallery and then go to Souk at Taj Hotel for lunch. It offers the best Mediterranean cuisine in the county. If you are around on a Sunday, do not miss the Sunday brunch with champagne. The authentic eastern Mediterranean dishes from sesh touk to the shawarma to the grills – you will simply fall in love. Besides this, the panoramic view of Gateway of India and Arabian Sea simply wows you. After a scrumptious meal, you should move towards the fort area and go to the Yazdani bakery for brun/bun maska and Irani chai. This 100 year old Irani bakery also serves the best mawa cake in town.In the evening you will have plenty of options to choose from. Bombay night life is majestic, from the classic Indigo to the Leopold to the Ellipsis for finest cocktails.I would suggest you to go to The Table or The Bombay Canteen for some lip-smacking food at dinner.Well, I forgot to tell you that if you are in Bombay you shouldn’t miss the Irani restaurants. Do visit Britannia Café for berry pulao, ideal Corner for mutton cutlet and Jimmy’s Corner for Custard.For the midnight pangs, Baghdadi and Bade Mian are good options.Next day, head towards the valley near Mumbai. Lonavala is perhaps one of the best place for weekends Lonavala Hotels are designed to give comfort and the place itself is quite charming.I am sure the options shared are enough for you to quickly explore and compel you to fall in love and come again!This post was originally published on Urban Escapades.
Went to Amy winehouse's documentary film @ PVR
Take a Rickshaw (Mumbai’s favourite three wheel public transport) from Dharavi to Juhu. On your way, drive past Bandra, the queen of suburbs and cover places like Bandra Reclamation, Carter Road Promenade, Juhu Tara Road (this stretch houses some of the high-end luxury boutiques and multi-designer stores that stock a mix of ethnic Indian Bridal Wear and Indo-western dresses)
Juhu beach is the ‘Celebrity beach’ of Mumbai as it is quite common to find famous celebrities jogging along the sands or catch a glimpse of a Bollywood film shooting. Your visit to this place is incomplete till you sample the ‘Mumbai Style’ street food at the stalls – Chaat (Bhelpuri, pani puri & sevpuri); Pav Bhaji and a refreshing Gola (Snow cone). Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and scenic beauty of this 18 km stretch. Post your beach visit, get a rickshaw to drop you to the Iskcon temple which is at a short distance from the beach. India’s most beautiful temple of Lord Krishna, Iskcon is visited by thousands of people and devotees during festive occasions. You will pass the plush beach property JW Marriott hotel on your left & Bollywood Superstar Mr. Amitabh Bachchan’s two storied residence Jalsa on your right as you reach the shrine.
