A punch cart and waffle dosas, crab curry and cute boys. Seriously, our only motivation to get out of bed on Sundays is The Bombay Canteen’s new-ish Big Canteen Brunch.
Yes, it’s where the sun shines but also where India’s favourite regional breakfast dishes meet The Bombay Canteen’s pet potions. There’s Kutchi Dabeli from Gujarat, Aloo Dum aur Kochuri from Bengal, Kheema Bheja Ghotala from Lucknow, Naga Smoked Pork and Tingmo Sandwich, Pork Vindaloo Paonini and more! Meanwhile, sweet spots
include Dosa Waffles, Appam Crepe Suzettes and Pineapple & Saffron Sheera Cannoli.
Wait times are filled with punch cart punctuations - a bar trolley does the rounds during Sunday brunch, encouraging you to choose one of their fresh fruit cocktails crafted on the spot, including Canteen Marys and Tropical Bellinis.
Big groups with big hearts, may we recommend the Joint Family Platters that hold feasts like the Whole Roasted Butter Chicken and the Jumbo Crab Mappas Curry. The menu also offers East Indian Tongue Pao(nini), Sindhi Dal Pakwan and Bacon & Kalimpong Cheese Kulcha. Have Stomach, Will Travel.
And very soon they will be launching an add on, the Chef’s Own Country - All-In-One Brunch Experience (priced Rs 2000++ for vegetarians and Rs 2400++ for non vegetarians), and indulge in a specially curated, set brunch menu from a specific region of India, inspired by head chef Thomas’ #ChefOnTheRoad trips across the country. This month, the Brunch Experience theme is inspired by travel across four South Indian states, which means your table will be a site to behold, laden with crispy Spicy Tomato Dosas, Vangi Bath, Kundapur Crab Ghee Roast Benedict, Salem Mutton Kalaki with Seviya, Kerala Ishtew with egg appams and Dosa Waffles served with whipped cream & Filter coffee ice cream.
We’ll take that nap(kin) now!
Getting there: Unit 1, Process House, Kamala Mills, SB Road, Lower Parel call 49666666, 11.30am to 4 pm on Sundays.
