Lunch at Britannia Café

Britannia Cafe needs no introduction for anyone living in Mumbai. Opened in 1923, it is one of the few surviving Parsi restaurants in the city.

On most days, you will find the octogenarian owner taking orders of the customers and telling them stories of his time. This blog has a lovely interview of his. The must-haves at Britannia Cafe are the Sali Boti (mutton)/ Sali Chicken and Berry Pulav. Here are some pictures from my visit.

We have tried their Sali Chicken recipe at home time and again but it just doesn’t turn out the same!20131211-141031.jpgThis is the Chicken Berry Pulav. 20131211-141042.jpgThe Chicken Dhansak was not bad either.20131211-141223.jpgChocolate Ball (it had a good dash of alcohol) and Caramel Custard to finish the meal!
