after my week in hong kong i spent another week in bombay and then two weeks in delhi (before coming to los angeles for another week en route home to minnesota). while i still have a few hong kong meal reports to go (including lung king heen and tim ho wan), i’ve begun to post my bombay reports.
the first was a quick account of lunch at an iconic bombay restaurant, swati snacks in tardeo. they specialize in gujarati and marathi foods both traditional and not (think bajri paneer pizza). an absolutely necessary stop for anyone visiting bombay.
the second (though not the second meal) is a report on dinner at jai hind lunch home in bandra. jai hind is one of many similar establishments in bombay that specialize in the seafood-based cuisines of the southwest coast: mangalorean, konkani, malvani, goan. taken as a larger whole, this is one my absolute favourite “cuisines” and one that’s poorly represented in the u.s, if at all. for that matter it’s poorly represented elsewhere in india as well.
