Articles recommending specific dishes have always been more helpful to me rather than those recommending restaurants. I, like million other people, have a very hard time picking out what to order at an eatery.

If you are in the same boat, here are 5 must-have dishes that you should definitely try out this week. Start checking these off your list and let the food crawl begin.

Pasta Cooked In A Cheese Bowl At Gustoso – For The Cheese Lovers

If ‘cheese’ features on your perfect meal list, then you have to go to Gustoso, an authentic Italian pizzeria (with outlets in both Kemps Corner and Khar) for a truly cheesy pasta tossed in a cheese wheel. A large full-size wheel of Grana Padana cheese is brought to the table. This is then lit up with brandy, and the cheese ultimately crumbles. At the centre of this cheesy wheel, a chunk of homemade tagliolini pasta is tossed and mixed around. Read more about it here.

Duck Balchao Dosa At The Looney The Lover The Poet – For Experimental Foodies

The very mention of duck dosa sounds kind of exciting. This restaurant in Khar called The Looney The Lover The Poet has a very invigorating menu with some quirky dishes you have never tried before. What stands out about this dosa is the balchao preparation, which is a Goan method of cooking meat in a spicy and tangy tomato-chilli sauce. Don’t forget to try it!
