Colaba in Mumbai is an awesome destination for shopping, soaking up some culture at the Prince of Wales Museum and at its various art galleries and – naturally – eating.
While it has some great fine dining options, we realise that when in Colaba you may just spend all your money shopping on Colaba Causeway. So, allow us to introduce you to a street stall stalwart – Modern Juice Center.
What’s To Eat?
Just behind Radio Club, towards Colaba market, Modern Juice Center is known for a lot more than its juices. In the evenings, one server dedicates all his time to a spit that is slow roasting magnificently seasoned and succulent chicken. When a customer orders a shawarma, this chicken is shaved from the spit and stuffed into a roll, along with a combination of spicy sauces, pickled vegetables and fries, creating a delicious meal to go, just for Rs. 75! Vegetarians can enjoy an equally flavourful vegetarian shawarma that is even easier on the pocket at Rs.65.
If you find yourself at Modern Juice Center, you should also try their chicken burgers, with a crispy patty stuffed between yielding buns. Their cheese toast, stuffed with oodles of cheese is deliciously indulgent as is their chicken mayonnaise roll which is dripping with mayo; the tastiest way to put back on those calories lost while shopping.
Juices & Shakes
True to its name, Modern Juice Center has a vast menu of juices that they make fresh in front of you. Their sweet lime (mosambi) juice is wonderfully refreshing as is the Maramari juice – a mix between pineapple and mosambi juices. Their papaya juice is a great option if you want to don a healthy hat.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try their papaya milkshake, which is an unusual combination of papaya and milk. If, on the other hand, you’d rather stay safe, stick to their chocolate milkshake or their rose milkshake, both great drinks to give you a boost of energy and battle the afternoon heat.
What makes Modern Juice Center such a great spot, aside from the easy prices is that you get to watch everything made fresh – a live kitchen so to speak. Check out the video we put together of our visit to see what we mean!
