I am on cloud 9 today and extremely excited to share with you all, that our Irani Cafe walk (which many of you may have followed on Facebook and Twitter on November 17) has been featured in today’s DNA Mumbai Downtown Edition, in an article titled “Old World Charm and Irani Cafes”.
Since I have been bitten by the travel bug, I have been lucky to have traveled extensively within India and also a few countries abroad. But somewhere along the way I realised that while I have traveled across numerous cities, somehow I have neglected to explore my own. And that’s when the idea of exploring my own city as a tourist took root (read more on this in my post Mumbai Local). Then in one of the travel meetups I met another travel blogger, Priyanka Dalal, who shared my views and together we set out to explore the hidden charms of this city we call home. Along the way we met Dipti who also joined us on this quest and has written this article.
Reading more on Mumbai we came across an article “The Tale of Mumbai’s Irani Cafes” that writes about how the world of these quaint Irani Cafes is sadly coming to an end. And hence we decided to experience these cafes before they finally closed their doors in Mumbai.
As written in the article on our walk, we just managed to complete a part of the trail and some places are still pending. I hope to complete the trail soon and then write a detailed post for you all to follow and experience these cafes for yourselves.
