There’s a different charisma attached to authenticity; the aroma, texture, influence of flavours, and the sheer indulgence in cuisines that come straight from culture defining an epoch.
As indispensable as it can get, Indians loves the variety in their food, which is why we have an array of restaurants and food joints offering a variety of cuisines. However, these food items are often a chasm far from their authentic type.
The Bohri Kitchen in Mumbai is the face of Bohri food, run by Munaf Kapadia and his mom.
An MBA from Mumbai’s Narsee Monjee, Munaf was having a ball at Google when the idea of his mother watching boring sitcoms on TV irked him. In order to keep her busy and get the world to taste the scrumptious delicacies she put on his dinner table ever so often, Munaf started the exalted Bohri Kitchen.
The restaurant is now two years old and can easily be deemed as one of the most talked about places in Mumbai.
An ideal meal here will start with an assortment of starters, a massive main course delight, desserts, beverages and condiments. In a nutshell, a visit to this place will fetch you ginormous 7-course meal.
Loved and much appreciated by the likes of Rani Mukherjee, Ashutosh Gowariker, Farah Khan, and Huma Qureshi, TBK is not your everyday restaurant.
First of all, TBK operates out of Munaf’s house in Mumbai and it’s an invite only event. In order to be able to taste their delights, one needs to get in touch with Munaf and his team and ask for an invite ‘or’ exploit any mutual contact, if you have any.
