We’d expect nothing less than excellence from the team that brought Mumbai O Pedro and The Bombay Canteen, but you know what we didn’t expect? A concept that’s based completely on mithaai. And a mithaai ki dukaan. And, flabbergastingly enough, 100% vegetarian.
With a menu that’s based on reimagining and reinventing Indian sweets, these guys have definitely caught us (and the internet) by surprise, and have had us counting days until their shutters open.
It’s opened up in the unexpectedly cool neighbourhood of Byculla, quite close to Jijamata Udyan AKA Rani Baug, and boy, oh boy. We really felt anything but the halwaai vibes when we entered Bombay Sweet Shop. Swanky, organic-looking and beautifully set up, The Bombay Sweet Shop has a Mithai Bar as you enter, a Chikki Bar and even a counter where Indian-inspired sweets are crafted, the dish depending on the hour of the day. Nostalgic, comforting and yet nouveau, they’ve introduced a Ghevar Tart, a PuranPoli Ice Cream, and even a Caramel Custard Popsicle. It’s definitely a place to Eat Hatke!
