Galinhada at Boteco
1. Boteco: This latest entrant in Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) is a place where music from forks and knives clanking against the plates fills the ears of guests as they sit in the company of expats tucking into meat-laden Brazilian fare. The extensive menu packs in Brazilian fare along with risotto, ratatouille and momos. Some delights to tuck your tummy with are Pao de Queijo (a Brazilian baked cheese breads), Brazilio Slam (white concoction of coconut-infused cachaca, a spirit made using fermented sugarcane juice, and coconut water), and Galinhada (a rice dish comprising of mildly spiced short grains of rice. It is seasoned with saffron and laced with peas, peppers, cherry tomatoes and succulent strips of chicken.)

Papeta Par Eedu at Billimoria's Parsi Ghernu BHONU
2. Billimoria's Parsi Ghernu BHONU: This is a month-old delivery service at Versova that has has a small sitting arrangement and delivers across the city. Papeta Par Eedu, the traditional egg dish, served at the eatery is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The Egg Pulao made with lots of veggies and fluffy brown rice, and topped with two soft boiled eggs make making for a wholesome dish. The menu offers snacks, pulao, Curry Chawal, Dhansak Chawal and a thali (Lagan Nu Patru). Andheri is slowly becoming a hub for regional food, and this month-old eatery is one of the examples.
Where: Shop 2, opposite Gwalior House, behind Seven Bungalow Garden, JP Road, Versova
3. The Fatty Bao: The restaurant is making innovations with black rice, which arrived from Northeast to create everything from salads and sushi, to dosas and dessert. The restaurant has given a touch so that Japan meets Manipur on a plate. The rice used in the Black Rice Sushi with Scallops and Miso comes from Manipur. The deep colour of the grains makes the dish visually striking and also gives it a nutty flavour. The scallops that go inside are seared in butter and miso paste.
Where: Kamala Mills Compound, Lower Parel
