Summers call for light food. The urge for something cold and refreshing, yet satiating is constantly on one’s mind as one copes with the gruelling summer heat. Heavy meals are best avoided. Savoury light eats, chilled soups and energising salads, are preferred over a full-fledged heavy and greasy meal. Several restaurants and eateries in Mumbai offer the perfect antidote to this heat, by way of light food which is nutritionally balanced and palate-pleasing too. So, head to any of these restaurants in the city and try some summer dishes which will appease your palate.
