It’s true that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. There’s nothing better to drive you for a long day than a good plate of breakfast. SodaBottleOpenerWala, the quintessential Bombay Irani Cafe & Bar, is now serving the all new The Big Bawa Breakfast menu at it’s Khan Market outlet.
Get the perfect kick with the choice of Coffee or Chai – the regular options as well as the quirky options like Parsi Choy (lemongrass & mint) and Mint & Cinnamon are available; or choose from the Nitro Cold Brew(s), which are infused with nitrogen (which is supposed to cut acidity). From the Fresh Stuff section – there’s choice of fresh fruit juice, sober sangria and smoothies. We loved the Lime & Cinnamon Nitro Brew and Five Berry Sober Sangria that came to our table.

There’s no breakfast without eggs, and there’s a line up of Poro (Parsi Flat Omelettes) on the menu. The Smoky Poro, made using smoky cheese and jalapenos came with sauteed vegetables, pav, hash browns, baked beans and cheddar potatoes. There are other choices available which let you add a variety of vegetables and meat (ham/chorizo) in your omelette, so choose your favorites. We loved our choice for the cheese-i-ness and the jalapenos. Cheddar Potatoes are so good, we thought it could be made a dish on it’s own!
Pancakes make a popular breakfast choice and it’s there in the menu. With choices as popular as the Caramelised Banana & Butterscotch and to the very interesting Espresso & Whiskey Cream, you can enjoy your pancakes without the guilt – for they are made with Ragi & Oats. Espresso and Whiskey Cream was our choice and we loved it with all our heart.

Going to a Parsi Cafe and not having a dish centered around pav is not an option. Choose from Bohri Kheema Pav or Ghotala Pav, and you will love it. We tried the latter – the ‘ghotala’ being the mutton kheema mixed with egg 🙂 It is surely interesting, but we would probably want to keep our meat and eggs separate.
Don’t miss the fresh Breakfast Cakes in The Big Bawa Breakfast menu. There are 5 options available and we had a tough time deciding our favorite. Wheatgrass & Citrus, Double Chocolate Chip, Multigrain Organic Honey, Semolina, Coconut & Raisin – take a pick and you won’t regret it. If we have to make a choice for favorite it would be the Semolina Cake, but all cakes are equally good 🙂

There’s a Classic Parsi Breakfast section that we skipped given our appetite but has the traditional options of akuri, cheese pav & the famous Eggs Kejriwal, among others!
