What does an ideal evening in Mumbai look like? ?️ A couple of friends sitting in a bakery enjoying bun-maska with a piping hot cup of chai ☕ Bun maska and chai for Mumbaikars is practically an emotion; it's a ritual that has been followed for many years, and we have brought it to Dubai in its purest form at the @TheBhukkadCafe The best way to have it is to dip the bun into the hot tea and savour every bite. The concept of bun-maska and chai kicked off with the establishment of Irani cafes in Mumbai. It was around the late 1800s and early 1900s when Irani cafes mushroomed in the city and they became an important part of Mumbai's social evolution. We proudly represent India and all of the beautiful aspects of it's diversity that has impacted the food scene today. ? Your prem in Karama. ? Revisit your memories with our nostalgic dishes. ? Dubai born concept, Inspired from dishes all over India. ? Can't seem to get enough of #TheBhukkadCafe?
