What: Crumpets, New Shelter Building, 1st Road, near Dhanteshwar Temple, Khar (W), call Vijay Gupta at 8692992228, starts at Rs 65 for a chicken puff.
Why: The name might make you think of clotted cream and chintz prints, but this Bandra eatery will serve a schizophrenic menu of chicken pesto puffs and prawn curry, sandwiches and rolls, Indian and Chinese. Also look out for split-level, all-white interiors and a bright red signboard.
When: Ate Britain open to visitors starting July 1.
What: Cool service for the careless by OneAssist, visit www.oneassist.in or call 08080333333, Rs 1,000 annually for Wallet Assist program.
Why: We’re big losers at the bpb office – wallets, cell phones, marbles are all misplaced distressingly often. Enter OneAssist, a two-week-old service that blocks all plastic; replaces PAN cards and driving licenses for free; and even helps pay for a new wallet when you lose yours. They also have emergency services to cover hotel/airline costs and a cool program that lets them block, back-up and locate your cell phone for when it goes missing (again). PS: The call-service is a work in progress, so be prepared for some bumbling.
When: You want a whole new state of find.
What: Slugger flask from The Leather Boutique, call (080) 40984777 or visit the Facebook page here, Rs 1,850 plus Rs 300 for two day shipping.
Why: “Where can I find a good hip flask?” – it’s a question we get all the time, from bankers and bakers and even one of our (very) harried mothers. To all these gin blossoms, we recommend Slugger from the month-old Bangalore-based Leather Boutique– a caramel-coloured, silver-accented flask that looks pretty and holds a week's worth of booze. Also check out cool vintage wine holders and a hand-painted bag named Holly. Go lightly!
When: You need some moonshine to get through the day – is that too much to flask?
What: Buy and sell your Instagram photos at www.instaprints.com, approximately Rs 250 for an Eiffel Tower postcard, registration free.
Why: You’ve been Instagramming like it was your full-time profession, so you might as well make it one. This fun new website lets you post and sell your Instagram photos online, setting your own price for each of their avatars – prints, canvas, posters and postcards. If your print is sold, Instaprint will take care of printing, framing, matting, packaging, shipping and collecting payments, and send you a monthly payment via PayPal. You can also buy works of fellow Instagrammers (or scope out the competition) and participate in chat forums. Shoot!
When: You want to be Fil-ter Collins.
What: Goan cashews at Walke Jewellers, Narialwala building, MMC Road, Mahim, call 9869707017, Rs 60 for 100 grams.
Why: Skip over the passé silver baubles at this battered little jewelry store and go straight for the real gems: Mr Walke’s secret stash of fresh cashews with the husks still on, shipped over from Goa. He sells them by the kilo and also in little 100 gm packs, perfect to snack on.
When: You want to nut and bolt.
