As soon as it starts raining, the stomach starts to rumble and craves for some scrumptious monsoon snacks. (Well, they are available all year round but are somehow more special during the rainy season.) The joy one gets while sipping on a piping hot cup of coffee or <em>masala chai</em> while enjoying the monsoon is unexplainable. And no cuppa is complete without the sinful snacks that go along with it.
I have noticed that most newly opened/upcoming eateries in the city are specialising in Chinese, Italian, Japanese or Lebanese cuisine. Restaurateurs are playing it safe by sticking to culinary styles that have been tried and tested on the Indian palate. Since Mumbai is a diverse city, it would be nice to see some stand-alone restaurants that serve unique flavours.
