What: Busaba, Todi Mills, opposite Blue Frog, Senapati Bapat Marg, Lower Parel.

Why: Everyone's favorite khow suey (and momos and cocktails) find a new home in Midtown Mumbai, where the popular Asian eatery is opening a new, split-level branch, complete with an expanded menu and takeout counter. A Chib off the old block!

When: Slated to open next week. Watch out for the bpb review!

Also see our review of Le Pain Quotidien, Mumbai's newest Belgian bakery.


What: Voyager sheesha service, call Nirbhay on 9930517646/ 9920433493 or visit the Facebook group, starts at Rs 550 for delivery of hookah, 3 chillums and magic coal; last-minute orders entertained but try and call 3 hours in advance.
Why: Because you’re sick of sitting on faded orange cushions in dimly lit bars just for a sweet lungful of smoke. Launched by a former hookah bar owner in London, Voyager lets you self destruct in the comfort of your own home, sending over equipment, coal, flavors (over 30 choices) and even an attendant to do all the running around. You suck!
When: You want to be piper-active.

pENNY

What: Pop up store, Sakpal, next to Olive Bar and Kitchen, Union Park, Khar (W), call Kiran on 9819902782.
Why: A sliver-sized pop up shop sandwiched between a florist and fast food joint makes room for everyone from fashion designers to visual artists. Currently showcased is Italian designer Diana Linda, who makes cool recycled and pop-art accessories – see hologramic Goddess clutch and magazine table mats.
When: You need a vendor bender.

What: bpb’s list of 45 free things to do in Mumbai, click here to view, well…. free.
Why: Haircuts, graphic novels, kickboxing, real estate and even lunch (well almost) – it’s good that all of these (and more) are free in Mumbai, because here we get no love or fresh air.
When: You want to meet a super zero.

bODY

What: Fun dabba service from Foodizm, call 65118001, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or visit www.foodizm.in, start at Rs 109 per meal, delivery from Malad to Colaba, five meals minimum.
Why: Foodizm plans to steel your dabba and replace it with a sealed, calorie-counted, microwavable tray arranged with fancy-but-fit food options. The lunch menus are overseen by a group of five experts including a fitness trainer to the stars, and feature ratatouille, kimchi, rosemary roast chicken, usal. Oh, the way you make me meal!
When: You need a tray of hope.
