Mumbai - part 4


I'm currently lying in a hotel room in Thrissur where I will be presenting at a conference on teaching EFL (English as a foreign language) tomorrow...my life gets more surreal by the minute! I thought I'd take the opportunity to write my final post about Mumbai and write about one of my favourite subjects - food.

I have to admit that, sad as it sounds, I've had very little appetite lately - two bouts of Delhi belly and I'm a little hesitant about what I eat. However, Mumbai has a fantastic selection of restaurants and street food and what I didn't eat I photographed. First day I succombed to a little home comfort in the shape of ratatouille, potato dauphinoise and garlic mushrooms - tres bon. The next day I had a walking tour and my guide bought me these nice dosa filling style potato cakes for breakfast and she advised me to have a Pav Bhaji as a traditional North Indian lunch. I did and it was delicious - I think it was a tomato and lentil dahl with coriander and an onion side with bread slightly fried in ghee to mop it up. For dinner I headed to the world famous Leopolds (read Shantaram or see Johnny Depp's movie out soonish) for a chicken kebab. More about the atmosphere and beer then the food but it filled a hole. The street food looked incredible - these fish were being served about 3pm for a late lunch with curried eggs and rice - sadly my stomach was being a wimp but they smelt tasty!
