Hoppumm is back in the food scene and this is your chance to indulge in some delectable Sri Lankan cuisine. Their new and upgraded menu takes a deep dive into the flavours of Sri Lanka with dishes like mini coconut pol roti, prawn temperado, black potato curry, and much more. Don’t miss out on their sweet delight, the pani pol, the Sri Lankan version of a pancake.

Ladurée, BKC

The iconic French patisserie, Ladurée, made its debut in Mumbai this January and has become the go-to spot for satisfying your sweet (and savory) cravings since. Whether you walk in after dinner for desserts or enjoy a lazy Sunday brunch, you're guaranteed to leave happy. Their chicken paillard, mushroom croquettes, mini burgers, and salads are great options for first-timers. Don't forget to indulge in some decadent tarts and, of course, their signature macarons.

Celebrating the flavours of Vietnam and Southeast Asia, Plural’s menu is not to be missed. Their locavore-driven selection boasts Southeast Asian delights like miso teriyaki soup, ancient grain salad, and firecracker Asian veg, among others. Pair these meals with a refreshing drink from their eclectic range of cocktails. Apart from the food and cocktails, it is the restaurant's love for diverse and authentic cuisine that makes Plural such a unique dining experience.

Noon, Bandra 

The recently held, Noon X Bandra Born takeover, was a delightful event, which proved Noon's unique culinary abilities. Bringing the best to the table and uniting the finest culinary minds, Chef Vanika Choudhury brought her Kashmiri roots to Mumbai’s food scene, curating a menu that is full of flavours and nostalgia. You can indulge in heartwarming plates like gucchi pulao and buckwheat tartlets perfectly paired with saffron-infused cocktails. 

Chica Loca by Sunny Leone, Noida

Sunny Leone is the latest addition to Bollywood personalities who have entered the food business. The restaurant pays homage to the actor's travels with her husband, Daniel. It boasts tastefully designed interiors with an extensive bar and a delectable food menu to match. We're still dreaming about their butter chicken gujia, butter chicken waffle, and the Japanese salmon wasabi pizza. And let's not forget the bar menu, which features some of our favorites like the 'You Do You', a truffle-infused whiskey with chocolate and banana, and the 'Sunsunny News', a G&T made with rose and coffee.

Think American diner but elevated. From their lamb birria fries and So Very Oslo salmon and avocado sourdough to their innovative Gochujang fried chicken sandwich, French onion & gruyéré orecchiette, and brie tempura—Melt House delivers everything to perfection. This is the perfect weekend indulgence if you are looking for one. It's a flavour haven with a twist!

Mizu, Khar 

What’s special about this menu is that it embraces traditional Japanese fermentation and preservation techniques with dishes like kabocha tart, Fujiyama potato salad, sizzling mochi, and much more. You can end your meal on a sweet note with the Japanese milk tea parfait, a multi-layered blend of milk tea-infused ice cream.
