The Permit Room has moved from Bangalore to Mumbai just for the holidays, so hold up an early mistletoe, and pucker up for piping hot rasam.

Staying in town for a month from November 15 onwards, The Permit Room is visiting right in time for the one year anniversary of Toit, Lower Parel, where it will pop up.

For the uninitiated, The Permit Room is Bangalore’s super buzzy restaurant and bar, focussing on South Indian cuisine from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Andhra. The Permit Room’s pop-up in Bombay, promises to add a “fun perspective” to traditional fare. Enter four glorious thalis (vegetarian, chicken, seafood and all meat options), available for lunch and featuring dishes like Bellary Baba’s Badnekai, Kuzhi Panniyaram Sliders, Pandi Curry. An a la carte menu will be served as well, and this moveable feast brings with it treats like Nalli Biryani, Kuzhi Panniyaram Sliders, Cocktail Medu Vadas, BBQ Madras Mushrooms.

The Permit Room pop up will share space with the launch of Toit’s all new limited edition, award-nominated beer called The Chevallier Bitter. Marked by a warm cracker and biscuit aroma, this is an ode to Mumbai.

So visit Toit this month for a bit of amchi Mumbai and a bit of Namma Bengaluru. And of course, for birthday cake. Make a wish!

Getting there: The Permit Room pop-up will house itself at TOIT, Mathuradas Mill Compound, Lower Parel from Nov 15 to Dec 15. Open all day from noon to 1 am, call 9324555223.
