Gujarati Sunday Vegetarian Thali at Shree Thaker Bhojanalay ~ “Yeh nahi khaya toh kya khaya !”…..it began serving 70 years ago in 1945 !
Just a few Sundays ago in October 2015 ,at the express desire of my adult nephew down from Toronto,my wife,adult son ,him and I sauntered in late afternoon at 2 pm to enjoy yet again a lovely Gujarati Thali at Kalbadevi’s (South Mumbai) legendary ShreeThaker Bhojanalay….it has no other branches….There were some large groups waiting as usual but as we were just four we got seating immediately…this is rare and possibly the rush was less because it was a really record hot Sunday and India was playing South Africa in a day night decider fifth ODI at Wankhede Stadium nearby so South Mumbaikars probably had stayed home…thankfully for us to get a place !
And Boy did we enjoy !….they keep serving faster than you can eat !….and do eat with your hands to relish it more !
For Rs 600 each for it’s Unlimited Sunday Thali we relished…actually devoured one helping after another ! that highlighted in Bold Green were my favourites while Family had others too !….Menu keeps changing every day :
Drink ~ Chaas (Buttermilk)
Sweets ~ Shira + Basundi + Bengali Sweet
Farsans ~ Moog dal Bhajias + Samosas + White Dhoklas ~ all served with standard & special chutneys
Salads ~ Tomato & Cucumber cut small + Raw Pumpkin
