- Parsi cuisine needs no introduction. Every Mumbaikar would have tried it and would also agree that it is one of the most elaborate cuisines ever. But when one says Parsi food, mostly one thinks Dhansak, Berry Pulao and the other usual suspects! Parsi food is much more.
The Parsi Snack Trail, led by Perzen Patel, a.k.a. Bawi Bride, takes you on a Parsi culture trip. Understand Parsi history, traditions and of course, the food as the enthusiastic Bawi Bride explains and walks you through the small, yet lovely eateries along Grant Road. These well kept secrets are places from where the Parsis buy their traditional snacks, which are not available in most Parsi restaurants in the city. Believe us, the sheer variety is sure to blow your mind!
Join us for a quick glance into the Parsi culture and their delicious snacks
