I love food! Most times it’s a phenomenal conversation starter or simply the best thing a foodie could do with their time. But more importantly, good food can brighten up a grumpy mood or a shitty day, because those delicious calories are the only thing that understand human feelings.

Mumbai is home to some of the best restaurants. God, I love this city! And I want to give you a taste of some of its newly opened eating joints. Seriously, you oughtn't miss out on these. Especially, if you live, talk, or breathe food. Bon appétit!
