Amid all-things vintage at Mumbai's Sassanian Boulangerie, treat yourself to Irani Chai & Mawa Cake

If you too want a glimpse of what Mumbai looked like in the 1900s, then visit THIS iconic eatery ASAP!

If you are looking for "majja ni life", then you have to try out the antique eateries dotting Mumbai, where food meets culture. One among these time portals to a gone by era, is an old quaint Irani café called Sassanian Boulangerie, established way back in 1913. An iconic eatery standing strong through the tides of time, Sassanian is famous for its Brun Maska, Dhansak, Pudding, Mawa Cake, Plum Cake and the Iranian Chai of course! So the next time you feel your stomach rumbling, head to Dhobi Talao for a vintage-style meal served at yesteryears' prices!

Experience posivi-tea from the 1900s!

When Sassanian was started in 1913 by Mr. Kaikhushroo Rustom Yazdabadi, it sold only Irani Chai, Brun and Bun Maska along with toothbrushes, cigarettes and other grocery items. Later, they stopped selling the grocery items and in the late 1990s, Meheraban Kola and his wife Ruhangeez Kola, also grand-daughter of Rustom Yazdabadi, revamped Sassanian Boulangerie. They renovated the bakery section and improvised the menu but kept the old heating ovens and cupboards intact to preserve the archaic charm of this place.

The old-world allure of Sassanian, which can easily transport you to the 60s, is lived by the visitors as they dine on marble-top tables, sit on polished bentwood chairs and experience mirrors studded on the wall with picturesque paintings framed in glass. A great mixture of historic and modern, even after 100 years, this place receives a bustling mix of crowds that want to savour the delicacies served, either at the restaurant or as take-out!

Knock Knock

Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner- hop, skip and jump from Marine Lines and make your way to Sassanian, if you're in the mood to sip on Irani Chai with a side of Mawa Cake. Also, don't forget to carry your camera for clicking Instagram-worthy pictures which will definitely cajole you to revisit this place!
