For dinner, we were looking for a quirky place where we usually would not have dined, if we were in Mumbai. Somebody suggested “Freedom Café”. So we started searching for this place. It was around 10.30 pm, the walk to the cafe through Laxman Jhoola was a bit of a scary experience. The lane towards the restaurant was very narrow and seemed creepy, but the recommendations given by others gave us some courage. The restaurant had an Indian style sitting, on the banks of the river. The view of the river from the restaurant was very pleasant. The place was conquered by hippies who were engrossed in playing and singing Bollywood Retros on the Guitar. It was an amusing experience to enjoy the music on the banks of the river. The crowd joined in for the music too, well, who would miss on Sayonee and Maaeri.
