If you are planning a lazy chai pe charcha session with your friends, you might want to visit these five spots and enjoy their Monsoon menus.
SodaBottleOpenerWala - Chai Pakoda and Chill is the name of the Monsoon Menu at SBOW and we could not think of anything apter this season. This trendy restaurant has put together a menu featuring popular snacks that folks crave this season. If you are hesitant to eat at your favourite chaat walla on the street then pick from this menu. The Makkai Ki Chatpati Chaat, Delhi Aloo Chaat and Ragda Pattice are great picks. The pakodas on the menu have excellent additions like the Mangalorean Prawn and Coconut Fritters ( the coconut being the vegetarian version ) and the Marcha Na Cheese Poppers which are Bhavnagiri chillies stuffed with cheese.

Taj Mahal Tea House, Reclamation, Bandra West, Western Suburbs - This picturesque spot in Bandra is a local favourite. Who does not want to sip on a steaming cup of chai and watch the world go by on a gloomy rainy day? The Taj Mahal Tea House has created the perfect monsoon menu just for that. A list of special teas from Milky tea to spiced and herbals teas that pair well with their nibbles. Choose from a monsoon special tea platter or perhaps a warming soup. For those with a sweet tooth, there are five exciting desserts to tuck into.
Grandmama's Cafe - With nearly seven outlets across the city, there is no denying that Grandmama's cafe is a popular eatery. While you can merrily tuck into their hearty pasta bowls or indulge in their delicious fondue, all perfect comfort food during this season, we strongly suggest you try their Monsoon special menu. The Pakora Platter is the real winner but the Corn By The Bay which is cobs of corn with four types of seasonings along with steaming masala chai are equally satisfying.
Copper Chimney - Robust flavourful Indian fare is perfect this rainy season. Who does not want to tuck into a plate of tikkas or a luscious Biryani? Copper Chimney is one of the best restaurants in the city for Indian fare and this season they are making it better with a special Monsoon Menu for their cocktails and mocktails. What is interesting is they are suggesting special food and drink pairings like their Jaiphali Monk, Old Monk Rum and Nutmeg, paired best with the Grilled Burrah Chop for non-vegetarians or Tandoori Dhaba Aloo for those who do not eat meat. There are quite a few interesting pairings and a tempting 20% off if you order from these.
