After stumbling up Colaba Causeway in my 4 inch wedges, being followed by a man selling what can only be described as giant inflatable condoms (I don’t care if its only 10 rupees, I still don’t want one!) we eventually reached Leopold cafe. Leopold Café is a
dingy rustic restaurant, which sells an array of Indian, Western and Chinese cuisine and was made famous by the book ‘Shantaram’. I haven’t read it yet but its supposed to be a must read (I’ll stick it on my things to do).
When I saw they sold a ‘Tower of Beer’ I knew Paul and I were there for the long haul. We ordered (to share):
1 Half chicken tikka – 230 rupees
1 Green salad- 60 rupees
1 Garlic and cheese naan 50 rupees
1 Raita (like a dipping sauce for the chicken tikka) 60 rupees
And 1 tower of beer- 450 rupees
The total cost in our Great British pounds I here you cry…. ???
Approximately £11.68! No its not a typo £11.68!! The beer was actually more expensive than all the food put together.
Not only a bargain but absolutely delicious and would be a welcome addition to anyone’s Mumbai Itinerary. It’s also useful to remember that if there’s no seats downstairs, there’s an upstairs.
