Binge On Authentic Ghar Ka Khana In A Playful Ambiance

Nestled away in the buzzing by lanes of Karama, Bhukkad cafe taps into the trend of serving the cliche with a twist. The cafe whips up Mumbai’s favorite delicacies, street style food and some authentic ghar ka khana and plates them in pretty enamel plates, mason jars, and quirky cutting chai glasses.

Taking inspiration from Mumbai’s favourites such as vada pav, Frankie, bread pakoda and bombaiya bhel, the cafe takes you on a nostalgic trip to the by lanes in Mumbai. That’s not all! They also have a variety of other dishes. Enjoy Chips Ki Chaat (AED 22), Dal Makhani Shots (AED 32), Chowpaty Vali Pav Bhaji (AED 30), Butter chicken sandwich (AED 32) and much more.

Besides, the restaurant also serves a host of egg and chicken dishes. Satiate your taste buds with their signature Threaded Chicken- boneless juicy chicken cooked in a delicious sauce, or simply go street style and pick from their list of chaats.

More About The Ambience

A casual dining place with a lot of quirk and colors thrown around, Bhukkad cafe might actually inspire you to refurnish your home. Once you enter you are welcomed by a palette of colours splashed across the walls and furniture. On one side is a brick wall adorned with all things retro and Bollywood.

On the other end is a blackboard wall with funny food quotes written on it. The furniture is the highlight of the cafe. Bright coloured sofas with quirky prints, high chairs, and old fashioned dining chairs serve as seating options while street carts double up as the centre table.
