Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

No matter which city we go to, we can never get enough of Mumbai- the vibrant spirit, the resounding culture, the frisking folks around- all of it. What we love the most is how inclusive this city is, no matter where you’re from or whatever you’re going through.

In this town, we’re all in it together.

You’ll always know that you’re not alone because this city, never leaves anyone behind and to make this thought a little more prominent in the culinary culture of Mumbai, there’s Mirchi and Mime!

An award winning restaurant, Mirchi & Mime serves contemporary Indian cuisine and this joint offers seasonal and select classical dishes from select locations across India. The presentations of their grubs are oh-so-pretty and the quality of nosh stands out amidst other here in the locality.

But why is it special?

First of its kind in India, you’ll be served exclusively by speech & hearing-impaired service staff, somewhat like KFC but in a fine-dine set-up. Here at Mirchi and Mime, you’re requested to actually communicate and to place your order through sign language.

How though?

Items in the food menu are accompanied with photos of hand gestures so while ordering an item, just mimic it and wait for your order to arrive! This makes the experience super-friendly and easy-breezy for all.

This initiative was undertaken by 2 entrepreneurs back in 2015, to provide a sustainable and respectful employment opportunities to around 500 speech and hearing impaired citizens.

When here, it is quite common to be frazzled by the expansive fancy-schmancy menu but don’t worry, we’ve got your back with our recommendations!

Try out the spicy Chicken Lollipops, Biryani, Corn Tikki, Cocktails, Jumbo Prawns and the Apple Crumble because they’re all worth every penny and every dish is a piece of art. The Corn off the Cob Bhel and Rajma Chawal Arancini also stood out for us and we know you’ll love it absolutely.

A restro fit for fams or dates with BFFs or bae, Mirchi and Mime will keep you hooked with its distinctive ambiance, delish nosh and the theme of course, has touched our hearts! We need more places like this where everyone can feel equal and thrive in a respectful manner, irrespective of physical hurdles.

So what we’re saying is that, if there’s an upcoming fam-jam plan or if bae wants a dinenr date, Mirchi and Mime is where you should be!
