Mumbai food: 3 places where you can savour the best Parsi food this Nowruz

Nowruz or Navroz is the Parsi New Year, which is marked by incredible food and celebrations in all Parsi homes. For Mumbaikars, Nowruz is just another excuse to celebrate this culture and their delectable food. Special events are being organized all around, for Nowruz this year, which falls on 17th August. This year, do not miss a chance to take part in one of the following celebrations occurring all around Mumbai.

1. Jumjojee – The Parsi way
Authenticook’s event specially designed for Navroz, is held not on the 17th but on the weekend after that. Home chef Mahrukh will host this Nowruz special lunch on 21st August, Sunday, at her ancestral property in Grant Road.

We saw quite a few popups by Perzen last year, but this is the first in 2016. Looking at the menu, we would love to have more in the next few months. For now grab this opportunity to taste the machhi from the Parsi households. The lunch is priced at 2500/- per person. Make your bookings at:
