We might not always be in that mood for pressed white linen or classic cuisine or that stiff service. And for that bohemian evening, Mumbai seems to have options galore. From Bar Stock Exchange Theme to Bombay Irani Café to an American Garage or the oldie British Brewery, these places promise dinner with difference. Often these outlandish places with unthinkable food add to your favorite memories.

PinkVilla checks out the city’s quirkiest restaurants for treat tad-bit unusual:-

Fatty Bao

Geometric-pattern glass door, handmade Athangudi floor tiles, ‘Wabi-Sabi” wallpaper, do they sound strange? Well, they do and that is exactly what Fatty Bao promises to be, zany meal space. Quaint leisure patio, inventive bar and weird-wow cuisine keeps your visit unconventional. Black Rice Sushi with Scallops and Dan Dan Noodles with Pork surely have fan in you. Sexy bartenders at that berry red bar use possibly every bit of plants for signature cocktails. Unheard!!

Quirky Bit: Deconstructed mix of Jello, Caramelized Banana, Purple Yam Ice cream and Raspberry Sorbet served as Dessert with Sense of Humor!!

Head Out: Summerville Junction, Linking Road, Bandra West.

Appx Penny for Two: INR 1800

Farzi Café

The name itself sparks bare creativity. The Modern Asian Bistro, Farzi Café boasts of traditional global cuisine combined with Indian Classics. If you have never tried experimental cooking technique, Molecular Gastronomy, this is your chance. The Raj Kachori gets touch-down weird when the chutney is converted to foam and served alongside. Savor the original taste simply with quirky touch and lesser calories. Sounds like bizarre must-try!!

Quirky Bit: Chicken Tikka Masala served in London style telephone booth.

Head Out:  Kamala Mills, Lower Parel.

Appx Penny for Two: INR 1500

SodaBottle Openerwala

Do you relate to Mumma nu Double Dose, BumSuckerWala or Maushi Chi? Don’t get me wrong, they are the quirkiest cocktails at Mumbai’s very own Irani Cafe- SodaBottle Openerwala. Sleek décor restyling the nukkads of Mumbai ticks off the quirky box. SodaBottle Openerwala serves out-of-box Parsi Cuisine and Irani Specialties. Get lucky and feast on Tarela Himalayan Rainbow Trout baked with Parsi spices, a seasonal delicacy.

Quirky Bit: The Bombay Street Staple is re-invented. What you get is tangy Seafood Bhel with Fish, Prawn and Squid.

Head Out: Capital Building, G Block, Bandra-Kurla Complex.

Appx Penny for Two: INR 1300

Jamjar Diner

It is probably French Bunglow in Puducherry but if you push open the front door you step into outlandish American Café, Jamjar Diner. Indigo Walls, Multi-colored dome lights and the crooked shelves with comic books makes it hip queer space. Open terrace with stunning view and rainbow furniture gives you company. Skip your breakfast for lunch plate of Ratatouille Crespelles with Burritoes, roasted Tomato and Chives. Sign off with ‘Flower Pot Surprise,’ which is this massive flower pot with soil of Brownie and Oreo along with Marshmallow flower.

Quirky Bit: This is one of the fewest places you get freshly churned Ice-creams and transportable desserts.

Head Out: Aram Nagar 2, Yari Road, Versova, Andheri West.

Appx Penny for Two: INR 1500

Monkey Bar

Based on global pubs, Monkey Bar is the flamboyant Indian Gastro-pub. Pop-hued high chairs, rustic bulb lights, looming windows and walls encrypted with freaky note for all, walk into laidback décor. Here, Mumbai’s iconic Vada Pao gets unusual with sausage stuffed Goan Chorizo Pao. Try out offbeat Salad combination of Kerala Red Rice and Orange with Beet. Opt for whacky bowl of sticky Gobindo bhog rice topped with boiled eggs, pickled vegetables, steak (Select from Chicken Katsu or Naga Pork) with Scallions.

Quirky Bit: Inventive Cocktails in Nutella Jars and Copper tumblers.

Head Out: Summerville Junction, Linking Road, Bandra West.

Appx Penny for Two: INR 1800

The Sassy Spoon

The Sassy Spoon comes with happy sunshine. Peculiar vintage décor with wholesome European-Mediterranean fare is joyful bet. You cannot miss the cute artifacts like pink bicycle or that illuminated bird cage. The all-time delight, Spaghetti comes alive with spatter of Truffle Butter. Soak in Summer pleasure with Prosciutto and Melon. For delectable healthy options try Quinoe Salad, Rice Paella and Pumpkin Brown Rice Risotto. Even the Margarita turns sassier here with roasted Coffee. Glutton-free and Vegan Food is available.

Quirky Bit: Interesting Martini Concoctions with dash of Stolichnaya Vodka.

Head Out: Express Towers, Ramnath Goenka Marg, Nariman Point.

Appx Penny for Two: INR 2000

The Irish House

Get freaky Irish hangover at your neighborhood GastroPpub, that’s quick snippet of The Irish House. Forgotten brick walls and artless wooden seat-outs with green creepers, it is that British Brewery with old-world naïve charm. Glazed mushroom and tubers on skewers with splash of Doppelganger keeps you happy and high. You will be in love with their Open Door Policy. Express your love for Beer and you are spoilt in an Irish World of mugs, kegs and brews.

Quirky Bit: Beer Doused Dishes

Head Out: Phoenix Mills Compound, Senapati Bapat Marg, Lower Parel.

Appx Penny for Two: INR 700

Bar Stock Exchange

Bar Stock Exchange introduces you to the adrenalin trade experience over dining and drinking. The custom-made Bar Stock Exchange concept offers dynamic pricing through android-menu. Liquor Prices increase as more customers order the same drink and decrease with drop in demand. The giant bull outside the bar sets madcap mood. Not only theme, Chargrilled Paneer Tikka Sizzler or Mushroom Ravioli keeps you hooked as well.

Quirky Bit: The market crash feature of controlled drop in the pricing of selected drinks. Fun experience of your favorite poison and we dont complain!!

Head Out: Shivani Industrial Estate, Sakinaka.
