The cuisine in Mumbai is astoundingly good. Rich, flavorful curries and old-school Bombay dishes are plentiful and delicious. Here are some top stops on a foodie tour of the city.
Located inside an unassuming commercial building in Kamala Hills, Flea Market Bazaar is a New York-style food hall filled with a variety of different food stalls — all cooking up a different type of Indian cuisine. The space is clean and modern with family-style tables, so order a few bites from a bunch of stalls and have yourself an indoor picnic.
This is as authentic as it gets. Shobha is one of the many restaurants in Mumbai with a green “All Veg” sign hanging by the front door to let you know everything inside is vegetarian-made. It may be hole-in-the-wall, but it will be packed with locals ordering their favorite dishes. It’s inexpensive too, and your table for four will feast for less than $10. Make sure to order a few different types of dosas.
Bombay Canteen is a bit on the pricier side, but for good reason. The modern Indian dishes are Michelin-status good and the pop art lining the walls and retro music sounding throughout the space gives it a modern, upscale vibe. Ask for the family-style tasting menu to sample a bit of everything.
If you’re feeling adventurous, ask a street food vendor to whip up his favorite item for you to try. Just make sure the water is completely boiled for anything you eat or drink. If you still want the street food experience but don’t feel like braving the food, ask for a chai tea.
Traveling to exotic locales often means contending with unusual weather. Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.
Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.
Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
