Yazdani Bakery : Vintage charm

Food, India, india travel, mumbai, Photography

Tucked in the noisy bylanes of Fort, Mumbai, amidst printing and stationary shops is Yazdani Restaurant and Bakery. Opened in 1953, it is one of the few remaining Irani bakeries in Mumbai. The bakery offers a wide variety of breads, cakes and biscuits. Regulars like me go for their apple Pie, Multigrain Bread, ginger buiscuits and we never miss their rum cakes around Christmas. If you want to experience old world Mumbai, a visit to Yazdani is a must.  And don’t forget to try this chai and bun/brun maska!!

Back to sweltering Mumbai after a refreshing holiday. I was lucky to be able to visit my favorite Chinatown thrice, while in Singapore. Not to mention the two beautiful Chinese tea sets I picked up, apart from enjoying traditional Cantonese cuisine and Dim Sums at Tak Po!
