From rainbow to glitter to fire, everything has been added to the food and it certainly made our experience of eating a lot more interesting this year. Mumbai didn’t think twice before adding the zing to the menu, and we didn’t too before eating it.

So, we present before you the weirdest food trends of 2017. Try them all if you haven’t already.

Spiking Coffee With Magic

The diamond coffee by Coffee By Di Bella literally broke the Internet with its glittery charm. People never thought they will be able to consume glitter and enjoy it at the same time. Read more about it here.

And if you aren’t convinced with all that glitter, the amazing pink latte in Le15 in Colaba is going to win you over with its amazing hues and taste. Read more about it here.

Setting The Food On Fire

Pizza By The Bay upped their pizza game by serving flambe pizza. Heated alcohol is poured all over the spread. The flames and burnt alcohol add a delicious smokey flavour to the pizza and even a flavour of alcohol. Read more about it here.

After Pizza, A Flaming Cocktail Tower called Farzi Everest is available at Farzi Cafe, Kamala Mills and it’s decked up like a tower with bottles and empty glasses {both wine and shot} and the liquor is poured from the top after the tower is set ablaze. You can read about it here.

After the fiery meal, if you want to clear your pallet, we have a fire pan lined up for you. Paanwallaa and Pali Naka makes amazing fire pan and it will definitely charge you up. Read more about it here.

Charcol Infused Goth Food

Food trends have a dark side but it sure is extremely delicious. Goth food is another trend that took over Mumbai and gave us some unique Instagram stories. Ticca Tikka in Andheri West has a special menu that features jet black with edible charcoal. Do try their goth tikkas and goth lassi. And when you are up for dessert, head to Ice Kraft in Andheri West for the goth ice cream.
