So, it's proven: yogurt is the new cupcake. Not since the 2009-2010 cupcake craze has Mumbai seen such a dessert storm, with countless garage fronts (largely concentrated in Bandra and Breach Candy) whipping up colourful swirls of soft serve. And the end is nowhere in sight. Just this week we wrote about 6th Street Yogurt, which opened up at Kemps Corner; Sugardaddy, another dessert/yogurt place is coming soon to Chowpatty; and one of our most reliable informants has intel on a new yogurt establishment opening up at Nariman Point. All in time for the outrageous heat that seems to have gripped Mumbai. Goodbye, winter, it was lovely knowing you. *Kiss*.
Another nascent micro trend seems to be the end of "multi-cuisine" restaurants (dare we hope?), with even small, mid-priced new establishments concentrating on one kind of food, and better yet, one kind of Indian food. See Jumjoji for Parsi food; Panki for Gujarati, Nitya for seafood.
Finally, this month's boom box, our February playlist of ten songs, is awesome. Have a listen!
