Must visit restaurants serving seafood in Mumbai

Mumbai…the city that takes me into an eternal nostalgia...rushing crowds, local train announcements, shopping hot bargain trends and of course that fresh seafood straight from the local fish market. After spending 20 years of my life in Mumbai, I find myself comparing it with every city that I visit or stay in. And let me tell you all other cities have failed for that matter. It is said that a child carries with herself forever, the memories of the land she grew up in.

What is so amazing about Mumbai, is its love for food and the way the people are game for every cuisine on the earth, especially if it is seafood cuisine. The city offers a range of the best coastal fare from across various regions. This coastal land never ceases to be on the top of my list for its freshest and a wide range of seafood menu.

So, my friends after compiling a list of Bangalore eateries, here I am with a list of must visit seafood restaurants in Mumbai.

Trishna -
Trishna is one of the most popular places for seafood in Mumbai. Located at Kala Ghoda, Fort, the place seems constantly flooded with locals and tourists. The seafood menu here is a mix of Manglorean, Hyderabadi and Punjabi favorites. Some of their most loved dishes are butter pepper garlic king crab, the prawns koliwada, butter garlic squids, tandoori fish and surmai tava.

Gajalee -
Gajalee is another popular spot for seafood lovers. Although there are many branches of this restaurant in Mumbai, the oldest one in Vile Parle is still the best. The place specializes in Malvani food. The must tries here are Bombay duck fry, clam koshimbir, crab green chilly sauce, stuffed bangda, tandoori crab and their famous solkadi to wash it all down.

Mahesh Lunch Home -
Another seafood lover’s heaven is Mahesh Lunch Home. They have outlets in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Dubai, the original one at the junction of Cowasji Patel Street and Pherozeshah Mehta Road being the most popular joint. The prawn gassi and tandoori pomfret, clams sukka, squid koliwada, dakshin fried crab, fish Balti and crabs in butter-pepper- garlic are the popular dishes here.

Highway Gomantak -
This is a place with a history of 20 years and as the name suggests, serves Goan seafood specialities. It is to go place when you are craving a home cooked seafood thali (meal). Along with the different thalis like The Surmai curry thali, pomfret green thali, bangda curry thali, kolambi suke thali, tisrya masala thali, kurlya (crab) masala thali, other popular items are pomfret green masala, kolambi curry, bombil fry and mori (shark) masala.

Konkan Café -
Konkan Café is a fine dine seafood restaurant at the Vivanta by Taj with a wonderful ambience of a cozy seaside bungalow on Malabar coast. Curdee mango (prawns), Mangalorean fish curry, pomfret recheado, and meen polichattu are a must try at this place.
