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).


jai hind lunch home


not the most photogenic food though.

we had a nice quick lunch at the sichuan chef today en route to the museum of natural history. nothing i'd make big claims for, but solid sichuan food.





i finally wrote this up on the blog yesterday. as i said, solid, familiar sichuan food done very well. no real reason for visitors from cities with good sichuan restaurants to go here but for everyone else, including residents, it's a nice option in the earl's court/s. kensington area.

on the other hand, the only way i'd ever root for alabama is if they were playing notre dame.

visitors who asked if they could come at an odd time to see the baby. turns out on arrival that this was at least partly so they could use the house as a changing/regrouping station between their morning family outing, and going somewhere else later in the afternoon. this includes three children who i'm normally delighted to see but who're making a bloody racket in the house while our toddler naps. and the parents seem incapable of keeping them away from the areas closer to his room. miraculously, he has not yet woken up.


7.5 years later i am happy to say that i have no memory of this or who these people were.
