Nestled in the lanes Bandra, 115-YO American Express Bakery still leaves foodies drooling
Mention Mumbai and most people will think of its beautiful architecture, dramatic facades right out of a movie, its beaches and so on! But one thing that often skips the mind, is a gastronomic journey. And a place that truly encapsulates the age-old charm of Mumbai‘s food and culture has to be American Express Bakery in Bandra, which is 115 years old.
Did someone say food?!
Started in 1908 by Francesco, the Carvalho family has been baking sweet and savoury delights to satisfy our taste buds since. The recipes have been handed down generations, each one contributing their own unique flavours, with only one goal in mind: the pleasure of our palate!
One that note, let's get to the main part now! When here, start off with their delish Prawn Pattice (₹40) and Chicken Sheek Roll (₹50). It is simple yet comforting, and might remind someone who grew up on a farm, of the hearty, rustic meals of their childhood. The Cheese Croissant, available at ₹40, will make you want to order more and more!
Apart from these, there’s a whole bunch of sandwiches starting from Veg Pizza Tart (₹35) to Spicy Mutton Burger (₹100) to be hogged on. American Express Bakery's wide range of artisan breads are handcrafted with simple yet healthy ingredients, using age-old techniques. From buns, poli, mini French loaf, to classic sandwich bread, they have it all!
American Express’ products are made with fresh ingredients to uphold its hundred-year-old commitment to high quality yet affordable pricing. And being so economical, most things on the menu can be ordered again.
Being in a city that’s as touristy as Mumbai means, that it’s absolutely essential to know about where to stop and eat, amid a long day of exploring. So next time you are in town and just want to take in the beauty of Mumbai’s charm, make a stop at American Express Bakery in Bandra. This store has outlets in Byculla and Santacruz West too.
