An Ode to Bandra’s Bakeries


am a Bandra girl. It is where I was raised and schooled. My mother’s family was from Bandra, my parents still stay there, and after marriage I converted my Matunga “idli with extra sambar and chutney”-loving husband into a Bandra boy.

For those not familiar with Mumbai, Bandra is a well-known suburb toward the North of the city. It is the nucleus of the city and a popular suburb to live in, as it is incredibly cosmopolitan. It combines an old-world charm with hip, modern eateries and stores, and is home to an incredible diversity of food experiences.
