About Cafe Funkie Town.
The quintessential café culture was pioneered in the 60’s by the Irani cafés in Bombay, passionately run by Parsis.They mus…hroomed all over the place by the hundreds,however, sadly you would find only a handful of them around today, endangered in existence, just like us Parsis.
The bent wood chairs,marble tables, walls clad with vintage parsi frames and the very strict and bizarre café rules to follow.They made hordes of fans, from the rich and famous, the filmy glamour to the common Bombay man. The simplicity of a morning chai with bun maska to their eclectic gourmet fare appealed to every Bombaiya’s palate.
Cafe Funkie Town is an ode, a tribute to the cafés of that old Bombay era.Once upon a time the talk of the town, and today a fading memory for most of us.I invite you to join me on a delectable gourmet experience, reliving the good old days and seeing Bombay cuisine with me, just my way.
Come, let’s celebrate the Bombay I knew, again.
