Be it sum­mers or win­ters, and in case of Mumbai, mon­soon, Mediter­ranean food fits the bill eas­ily. Not so heavy on spice and nei­ther light on taste, the re­gion offers some of the tastiest recipes that the world has wit­nessed. Bay­route ex­plores this un­charted ter­ri­tory quite smoothly and brings to us food from Egypt, Turkey, Le­banon, Greece, Morocco and other Mediter­ranean re­gions. With dra­matic dimly lit in­te­ri­ors, sub­tle or­na­men­ta­tion, pic­turesque cur­tains and dainty cut­lery, the place lit­er­ally trans­ports you off to the Mid­dle East. For first timers, the menu would be a bit tricky but the ded­i­cated staff, who are well-equipped and thor­oughly re­searched on the cui­sine will ease up the process. We started with some mock­tails—Greek God­dess, made of Egyp­tian Greek yo­ghurt and ber­ries—gives a smooth taste, and Re­hyan—a pulpy or­ange squash with basil and mint leaves to sooth the city’s heat.
