For those of you who don’t know an event called the Mumbai night market took place at three spots across the city of Mumbai: Malad, BKC and Powai. Yesterday it took place at powai and I went for the event. The market began at 5 pm and ended at 4 am. We left from home act around 8:30 PM and came back at around 11:30 PM.
There were many stalls of both established brands as well as new, independent ones. Some stalls were selling quirky posters with different kinds of quotes and images. Other places were selling bags with various themes like health and fitness. They were all priced quite reasonable.There were some really pretty gowns and skirts and dresses in various shades. There were crop tops, and every cute piece of clothing you could ever think of. Some shops were even selling Amritsari jootis and high heels at the same time! There was a live concert going on as well. The atmosphere was cheerful and noisy.
But, in my opinion the best part was the food all of which my sister and I shared. The first thing that I had was a chilli passion frozen lemonade which was amazing but with a huge kick of chilli although lemonade itself was quite sweet. After that I had a spiralised potato on a stick which had been deep fried to a crispy golden and then rolled around in a spicy masala and topped with a cheese sauce that was really smooth and creamy. The next thing that we ate was a chipotle chicken pizza but in a cone instead of the usual flat, circular bread. I also had a plate of ‘Saibo chicken’ from ‘Chi Wok’ which was basically bite-size pieces of sticky sweet and spicy chicken. The chicken was so soft that it mentioned in my mouth.
The last thing that I had was a ‘Blueberry Creamcheese’ waffle and a ‘Bubblegum Velvet’ waffle from’ The Belgian Waffle’ . The former was Sour due to the blueberries but the cream cheese balanced it out. On the other hand, the latter was sweet just like bubblegum but with a red velvet batter.
I also tried the ‘Salted Caramel’ waffles and the ‘Red Velvet’ waffle both of which were to die for. So, all in all it was a fun filled experience that I shall cherish in my memory for ever.
