Nothing beats a good breakfast to kick-start your day. And when the offerings include robust Parsi and Irani home-style flavours, it is that much more appealing. The newly introduced 'Big Bawa Breakfast’ at the bustling SodaBottleOpenerWala, BKC and SodaBottleOpenerWala, Lower Parel, outlets is worth driving all the way to relish these delicacies. The vast menu includes everyone’s favourite dishes and more.
Not only are the good vibes flowing, but the breakfast menu is equally varied and enticing. I suggest skipping dinner the night before coming here, as you will want to order the works.
Whether you are keen to gorge on eggs or adieu the Parsi way or give in to a sweet tooth craving to relish the Navsari Style French Toast, this menu serves them all. Add a slice of bacon or grilled sausages to your Eggs Kejriwal or Classic Akuri to enliven your taste buds further. Egg lovers must try the Poro or Parsi Flat Omelettes with various toppings. The Poro In Goa will delight carnivores.
Apart from the individual dishes on the menu which include Ghotala Pav, Raasta Sandwich, Chicken Chilli Cheese Pav, there are breakfast trays to choose from as well. Opt for the Eduwala Breakfast Tray or the Continental Breakfast Tray, which are a complete meal and value-for-money too. There is an all-vegetarian option as well.
Sip cold brews like a Star Anise and Mandarin Coffee or a light lime and cinnamon flavoured one, along with your breakfast. For fruit lovers, there are fresh seasonal fruit juices galore and even a Bawi’s Detox option, if you choose to be healthy.
The Instagram-worthy fluffy pancakes here will make you weak in the knees. Try the Espresso and Whisky Cream or Coconut and Organic Jaggery Pancakes. Sumptuous and filling, these will have you come back for more.
Round off your breakfast with a Pheteli Coffee or the quintessential Irani Chai, if hot beverages are what you fancy.
For food of this quality, the prices are surprisingly reasonable and the portions extremely generous; Perfect for sharing. The staff seem genuinely pleased to serve their customers.
For those who would not get out of bed to eat their breakfast, this breakfast is worth the effort and will definitely blow your mind. Any day that starts at SodaBottleOpenerWala is a good day. What is more, if you go there on a Sunday, the housie or Tambola will add to the fun.
