One pleasant evening we were wandering in the Sikka’s and all of a sudden I noticed a board in Marathi, “Aapli Boli Aapli chav, Aassal Maharashtrachi chav, Aatta aaplya sevet, Gharguti ruchkar, swadishta …………” and I was pleasantly surprised.
We entered in the restaurant, opened the menu to find out dishes ranging from Malvani Specials, like Kombdi Vade, Jhunka Bhakar, Barli Vangi, Sol Kadhi, Fish Malwani Masala, Jhinga Malvani Masala, Crab Malvani Masala, Bombil Fry, Bombil Masala, Chicken Malvani Masal, and then tipical maharashtian dishes like Sheera, Upma, Puri Bhajee, Sabudana Vada, Usal Pav, Missal Pav, Vada Pav, Kanda Bhaji, Kanda Pohe, Sabudana Khichidi, and then to Bhuna ghost, Mutton Masala, Chicken Masala, Kadai Chicken, Butter Chicken, Hari Bhari Sabji, Dal Fry, Dal Tadka, Aloo Mutter, Baigan Bharta, Channa Masala, Malai Kofta, Paneer Makhanwala, Chapattis, Kulcha, Rotis, etc etc. Without second thought we decided to have dinner in MIRCH MASALA, that’s the name of the restaurant. Now you will ask me what’s so special about it.
Well, MIRCH MASALA is a restaurant in Meena Bazar, Dubai run by Marathi Manus, Shri Vikrant Rohekar
We really wanted a change from Burgers and Fries and Pizzas and Fried rice and Noodles, that’s what we were eating everyday evening in Food courts in the shopping malls and were so thrilled to enter a restaurant with maharashtian dishes. I ordered Bharli Vangi, Bhakari, Jeera Rice and Dal Tadka., very tasty and delicious, simply irresistible, I must say. Two days later, we again went to the same joint for lunch and I intend to visit again and again to Mirch Masala during the stay in Dubai.
While having dinner, I found out from that lot’s of Marathi manus, away from their homeland, and from family, working in Dubai are eating in Mirch Masala only, availing their monthly tiffin services as a result not much missing home food.

Dear Harekrishnaji,

I often visit Meena Bazar.....but never seen Mirch Masala. We normally visit Bombay Chowpatty.

Would you please tell me exact location of Mirch Masala?

It is in the lane of this lobo tailors, Its a very small place , I also went their trying to promote marathi manus, But it was weekday the food was pathetic, Place was very small u have to be very careful while searching else u will miss the place,
May be weekend the food might be good,
But I would Highly reccommend Mumbai Masala in Larama it is in the Gully of the discount centre, Run by one Person named Ballal , the food is terrific and reasonalble alos
