Shortcut

Found yourself in the ‘burbs, wondering how to kill time? Leave it to us. Here’s a list of things we think you’ve got to do in Malad.


Jain Sabkuchh Food Plaza

Easily one of the best chaat spots in Malad, this one may come off a tad bit pricey, but you can be rest assured that the chaat’s worth it. The pani puri water is always perfectly cold, made using mineral water, and consistently delicious. Apart from the chaats, don’t miss the pao bhaji here.

The Stadium Bar

Ever wish you could chill at Wankhede, when there’s no matches being played there? This themed spot is designed to look just like the inside of a stadium. You’ve got to head here to see what we mean! Make your way here if you prefer a laidback, lounge-y ambience with a twist. And a great DJ, to boot.

Cost for 2: INR 1,850

Lounges

DLH Park, 3rd Floor, SV Road, Goregaon West, Mumbai

Manori Beach

If you’ve got the whole day to spare, consider heading to Manori! A 15-minute ferry ride away from Marve jetty, Manori is a coastal hamlet that’s reminiscent of Goa (yes, it’s a tall claim, but hear us out) - it’s got a nice beach, loads of fresh seafood/Konkani restaurants, and lots of tiny lanes dotted with colourful homes and Churches. If you decide to spend a night here, there’s quite a few resorts/homestays too!

The ferry ride will cost you no more than INR 20.

Sunset at the InOrbit Garden

If you’ve decided to stay close to the malls, we suggest heading over to the garden that’s right behind InOrbit mall. It’s a bit of a mini trek upwards, but the view is sublime. Walk right up once you enter, and then to the right when you see a fork. There’s a spot where you can sit and watch the sunset, and it’s always airy! #HiddenGemAlert
