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

Shortcut

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 160 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 uttapam, rava upma}.

The only rooftop restaurant in Borivali situated at a walking distance from Borivali station, this restaurant serves you North Indian and Italian cuisine with a view of the city that most of us enjoy. It’s a vegetarian restaurant with seating inside and outside and a very interesting menu when it comes to food choices {Deconstructed Chowpatty  – different chaats on a platter, broccoli soup, Ukrainian vegetable borsch, to name a few}. The restaurant hosts a number of events through the week too, so those are worth checking out!

Spice Republic

With stylish interiors and a fun vibe, Spice Republic is a hot favourite in Borivali. The menu draws from global cuisines and serves everything from contemporary Indian to Chinese and Italian. Not just that, the list of cold beverages is about an arm long, which means you've got your summer thirst quencher sorted (we like the old-school Banta Soda for that nostalgic vibe). Snack on their Farmhouse Fries in a variety of options like the Pizza Pop, and for the more adventurous there's a paneer makhani kulcha with cheddar dip. And if you want something more substantial, you can try the peri peri sizzler or the pav bhaji fondue. The restaurant is all veg.

The Burger Pit

If you're craving delicious burgers, then head to the Burger Pit. This local recco has a long list of burger options that are sure to satiate those hunger pangs. The loaded Jurassic Burger (we love the names here) comes topped with smoked bacon, smoked ham, chicken salami, fried egg, and a double meat patty. For veggies there's a Barnyard Crunchy Paneer Burger with grilled BBQ paneer, smoked bell peppers and caramelised onions. Wash it all down with a thick chocolate shake for the ultimate experience.
