From Mexican To South Indian: Restaurants You Must Eat At In Borivali

Shaili posted on 22 February

Ten-Second Takeaway

In a city where restaurants spring up almost every other day, it’s difficult to keep tabs of what’s really great in your own area. Here, we focus on Borivali and all the gastronomic wonders it has to offer.

The Fusion Kitchen

Just off Link Road, inside IC Colony, the Fusion Kitchen is a restaurant with two floor that serves fusion food – the ground floor is suited for a family dining experience while the first floor has a more modern, funky vibe to it, with a bar. They serve food from Italian, North Indian, Chinese, European and Mexican cuisines. We’re told that their sriracha cottage cheese, Lebanese cottage cheese kebabs, and even their pizzas {aphrodite pizza, anyone?} are a must-have! On game nights, you’re sure to catch a bunch of people watching it here, enjoying some pints {INR 170 for a pint of beer}.

Banana Leaf

Located near the Chikkuwadi junction, this new eatery {as the name suggests} serves some mean South Indian food and at a great price! It’s usually crowded but there’s a spacious waiting area, so you’re sorted. We recommend that you start your meal with some Jeera Milagu Rasam, work your way through the idli section and then hit the dosas, with some vadas on the side. Or, just go for their thali, Rajni dosa, Coorg Idli and end it with some coconut payasam {okay, this menu is playing with our heads now}. They also have a lot of healthy options available {soya khichdi, oats khichdi, soya medu wada}.
