One of Bombay’s oldest surviving restaurants is changing its food course. In its 100th year, Mama Kane’s Swacha Uphargriha, the tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant – known for its yummy home-made Maharashtrian delicacies – will soon go multi-cuisine with Punjabi and even Chinese food.
It was among the earliest eateries to introduce the city to vada. “People have varied demands now. We do not have air-conditioning facilities and options for food apart from the traditional Maharashtrian savouries,” said Kamlakar Kane, who runs the restaurant along with brothers and sons. “We will soon introduce Punjabi and may be even Chinese dishes. The original Marathi food will continue to be the main menu, though.”
Started in 1910, Mama Kane’s restaurant located outside Dadar station will complete 100 years this Wednesday.
