Bandra- the cream of the suburbs

I am very proud to be living in Bandra. There are still some cute homes in smaller lanes of Bandra. An auto ride through these narrow lanes is a treat.
Barring the glitzy Bollywood crowd -- many of whom live overlooking Bandra's sea front -- the neighborhood culture here feels creative, cosmopolitan and casual. Almost like what Brooklyn is to Manhattan. That means shorts and flip flops for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Even townies come here to kick back.
And those who have the whole list of services available for a comfort stay in Bandra are the happiest lot.

There is a thirty one list of places that include places like
  • Turqoise, (a home store) 
  • Anokhi, (souvenir)
  • Pali Market,(marketting)
  • Mela,(clothes)
  • Gear: The Bike Shop,(bike assessories) 
  • OMO,(clothes)
  • Paws N Furs, (assessories for pets)
  • Maharashtra Stationary and Xerox, (stationary)
  • Oleander,(fashion garments) 
  • Curbside Florist, (flowers)
  • Gloria Jeans Coffee, (coffee shop)
  • Gostana,(burger joint) 
  • Bagel Shop,(fresh bagels)  
  • Santé,(baked foods) 
  • Candies,(food joint) 
  • Just Around the Corner,(salads and sandwitches) 
  • Nature’s Basket,(organic supermarket) 
  • American Express Bakery,(fresh cakes) 
  • Yellow Tree Cafe,(european and labenese treats)
  • Soul Fry, (fiery coastal food)
  • Janata Lunch Home Restaurant & Bar, (cheap lunch place)
  • Toto’s Garage Pub, (a bar)
  • Zenzi, (a trendy hang-out)
  • Bamboo Tree,(fish pedicure) 
  • Aura Thai Spa, (fancy spa)

  • Reboot Shoe and Bag Laundry,(bags and shoe laundry)

Too lazy to write the details (specially if somebody else has already done their homework, but yes, these sure are interesting places where Bandraites while away their time.

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
