Bacon lasagne pancake for breakfast sounds like a plan. Photograph via Hitchki
There’s a new all-day breakfast in town, which has a mix of healthy and indulgent dishes. If you happen to be in South Mumbai this weekend, Hitchki, the recently launched restaurant in Kala Ghoda gives you several reasons to stop by with bacon lasagne pancake being one of them. A pancake made of bits of sausage, bacon, mozzarella, scrambled eggs and custard sauce is hard to resist even on a weekday, but especially on a Sunday. There are also dishes such as shakshuka, a classic Israeli breakfast staple made of baked eggs, herbed tomato sauce, chilli peppers, onions and cumin. If you’re feeling virtuous, you can try the Oats & Poha Thalipeeth served with Alfa Alfa yoghurt, but we’ll take the bacon pancake on the side, please.
Where: Hitchki, No. 59, Dr. V. B. Gandhi Marg, Behind Rhythm House, Opposite the Knesset Eliyahoo Synagogue,
When: 8 am – 1 am
Cost: Rs 90 onwards
