It's hard to pull off crumbly cool decor and a wine-only menu, but the young couple that owns and runs Pali Village Café have done it well. Peeling walls, old fans, foldable, rusty steel chairs, empty cages and paper menus define one of the most popular new restaurants this side of the sealink.

Despite the super slow service and small portions that everyone loves to crib about, here, in the glassed-in courtyard space and along art deco balconies surrounded by green plants and quirky music, Bandra’s creative and Bollywood lot sip on melon Sula sangria and eat wafer-thin pizza and pannacotta to the soundtrack of Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Check your case of the blues in at the door.

Pali Village Café, next to Janata Bar and Restaurant, Pali Naka, Bandra (W); tel. +91 (0) 22 26050401

arts reverie

Khijda Sheri, 1824 Ahmedabad, India

eye lo descubrió en julio de 2011

Arts Reverie is a place to stay and a place to work: for artists, designers and makers, with a focus on the contemporary crafts. Its location in Ahmedabad’s historic quarter offers an unique opportunity to encounter daily life and work in the enclosed neighbourhood of Dhal ni Pol.

It was been set up in 2006 by three experienced arts managers: Anupa Mehta of Art Works, India, and Jeremy Theophilus and Barney Hare Duke of A FINE LINE: Cultural Practice, based in the UK, who initiate and manage programmes of international residencies, exhibitions and events in both countries.

Arts Reverie is an international centre for supporting contemporary craft development. Its specialist focus has been grown around the opportunities offered by Ahmedabad and its cultural resources.

Samovar Café and the Jehangir Art Gallery that houses it are both landmarks of the Mumbai creative scene.

For more than 40 years, the long, narrow café -- inspired by those on Paris's Left Bank -- has drawn artists (who have painted its walls and autographed its ceilings), writers (who spend hours here perfecting their columns), intellectuals (who argue with anyone who cares to listen) and students (who fill their bellies on Samovar's home-style food).

Indeed, nerds, artists and culture seekers flock here from far and wide to sip tea and eat kebab rolls, stuffed parathas (Indian bread filled with potatoes, radish, minced meat) and dahi vada (fried lentil balls soaked in yogurt). Samovar Café is as bohemian as Mumbai gets, and there’s great art in the surrounding galleries as well.

Samovar Café is iconic really, and one of the last outposts of Mumbai's creative old guard who are as cool as ever, but to whom modern day coffee chains are an affront to their moral and metaphysical fiber.

britannia cafe

16 Sprott Rd. Mumbai, India

Britannia Cafe is a crumbling testament to Mumbai's once-thriving Parsi café culture. As one of the few remaining restaurants of its kind, this popular spot draws loyal customers to its obscure location in the business district of Ballard Estate.

Britannia was founded by Rashid Kohinoor in 1923, the same year his son Boman, the current proprietor, was born. Read about their beautiful life story at the Irani Chai Mumbai blog. The restaurant’s most popular rice dish is made with Iranian berries and a secret ingredient passed on by Boman's wife to his younger son Romin.

From the looks of its peeling walls, chipped ceiling and old Polish furniture, the café hasn't changed much since then. But that doesn't seem to matter much to diners who dig in to Britannia's dhansak-rice (a stew of mutton and pulses), sali boti (mutton) or sali chicken cooked in a subtly sweet gravy sprinkled with crisp potato chips, and the signature dish, berry pulao.

best coastal seafood

eye lo descubrió en julio de 2011

Gajalee began as a hole in the wall in Vile Parle turning out well-made fish and seafood dishes, home cooking for people who longed for food from their homes in Malvan, a coastal region of Maharashtra. Now it has restaurants in five locations in Mumbai, and one each in Mangalore and Singapore.

Gajalee has built its reputation on its tisriya sukka, or clams koshimbir, as the menu calls it.

Best Eats judge and food blogger Shanky says the dish borders on "greatness." The thick, hot and spicy coconut gravy just coats the perfectly cooked clams, doesn't overpower it. Diners have to scoop out the delicious nuggets from the shell before slurping out the remaining gravy.

Fellow judge and food blogger Sanjiv Khamgaonkar chipped in with his Gajalee staples.

"I love their prawn masala, fried bombil and crab curry, especially the crab curry," he says. "The sweetness of the crab gets infused with the spicy gravy and results in a sweet-sharp flavor."

Kunal Kapoor, filmmaker and Best Eats judge, says the fried bombil fish is his personal favorite.

The original Gajalee at Vile Parle remains the mothership and is still the best location.

"It's worth threading through traffic-laden Hanuman Road for it," says Shanky.

"But be prepared to wait," cautions Khamgaonkar.

Kadamgiri Complex, Hanuman Road, Vile Parle (E). Tel: +91 22 2616 6470. Open all days from 11 am-3 pm, 7 pm-midnight. gajalee.com
