i was in india for almost three weeks after my hong kong sojourn, spending five days in bombay and then two weeks in delhi. i ate every meal out in bombay as i was staying at a hotel--some solo, most with friends/people i was meeting with for work. my first meal report is from a true bombay food institution, swati snacks. this is a gujarati restaurant that underlines how complicated the traditional/contemporary binary is with indian food, especially gujarati food.

OMG so much green food coloring.

next up from bombay: dinner at jai hind lunch home in bandra (w). jai hind is one of a number of restaurants in the city that specialize in the seafood-based cuisines of the southwestern coast: mangalorean, konkani, malvani, goan. the distinctions between these cuisines are not always clear to me, a north indian, but this food--taken as a whole--is one of my favourites and there is no better place for it than bombay (and depending on who you talk to you will be told a different restaurant in the city is the best for it).

not the most photogenic food though.
