The experience of running three outlets of the popular Woodside Inn and The Pantry in Kalaghoda makes the re-launch of Bombay Vintage under their banner a fitting tribute to the city. Bombay Vintage creates a casual Indian-cuisine centric dining space, one that captures the dynamic energy of a young Mumbai. Gone are the deep red velveteen backdrops to each table, replaced by azure blue painted walls on the ground level, and lemon meringue yellow on the first level, nestled within cushion tufted, mini-arched seating backdrops.
By Sharell Cook. Mumbai's Chor Bazaarwhich literally means "thieves market", has a fascinating history that spans more than years. Apparently, it was originally called Shor Bazaar, meaning "noisy market", but "shor" became "chor" because of how the British mispronounced the word.

We called in today for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was inexpensive and delicious. I would strongly recommend this restaurant.
A firozi-blue nostalgia trap. Some kinds of city nostalgia deserve a slap on the wrist. Funnily enough, that chicken uruval is one of the best things about the meal, fragrant with its simple masalas, cashew nuts and curry leaves fried to a crisp to complement the watery softness of chicken.
The second the bus pulled up, I would dart up the spiral stairs and rush to the upper deck, hoping the first row of seats was free. Just this week, the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport BEST undertaking, which runs public buses in the city, said that it is facing severe losses, with not a single route in the city making profits. BEST has put up posters across the city, urging commuters to take buses.
A Humber, a yellow Stellite, a rare bright yellow Cord, a Minerva, and a Triumph are among the vintage cars and bikes, all lovingly restored and maintained in top condition by their proud owners, on display at the Western Indian Automobile Association WIAA auto show being held to celebrate its centenary year. The two-day exhibition will conclude with a Sunday morning road rally, in which all the displayed vehicles will be driven from BKC to Ballard Estate via Bandra Worli Sea Link and Marine Drive, to spread the message of road safety. Nitin Dossa, the executive chairman of the WIAA, has eight vintage cars displayed in the show, among them the Stellite, which he said was among the rarest vintage cars — the British company making it stopped its production after the first World War, and they are extremely difficult to find. Dossa bought his in the US and restored it in India.
No Borders, a cosy new vintage shop, opens in designer James Ferreira's year-old home. Karvinkop, a stylist who works in New York and Mumbai, conceptualized the No Borders store last November with the intention of making designer labels more affordable, and popularizing the concept of vintage shopping in India. According to Karvinkop, vintage dressing, though increasingly popular, still evokes some scepticism from Indian buyers.
