In Mumbai and looking for a place to eat? Among your considerations, healthy eating tops of the list? You could consider the cafe at new-kid-on-the-block The Moon Village.  

Spread over 1,500 square ft., the café at The Moon Village in Khar is modelled as an urban oasis, with raw, whitewashed walls and lush greens. The walls are adorned with art that pay tribute to energies of the moon and the universe; celestial-themed geometrical ceramic tiles offset earthy tones running through the space, welcoming you to rest, relax and rejuvenate.

As you soak in the good vibes, you can also soak your gluten-free sosas in a Mangalorean style curry and other delicacies from the eclectic, nutritious, primarily aiming at gluten-free and sugar-free menu, heavily influenced by different parts of Southern India.

Starting with breakfast, you can opt for anything from a high fiber Unpolished Red Rice Poha with Lime and Sumac Flavoured Ragi Idli with Citrus Spiked Sambhar to a Tangy Tofu Akuri and Eggs Florentine with Coconut Hollandaise. The Petite Plates section brings a fun juxtaposition of flavours to the table. Mexico meets Tamil Nadu with the Pulled Chettinad Kathal & Makki Tacos with Avocado and Tuscan flavours merge with those from South India with the Podi Idli Panzanella. You can also pick the surprisingly delicious Snapper Ceviche with Coconut & Kokum Sharbat.

For those who want their dose of daily bread, the menu also offers a selection of sandwiches and pizzas. Some ‘must-trys’ from the section include the Gunpowder & Stewed Shiitake Steak Sandwich, the Pulled Jackfruit and the Chettinad & Sriracha Pulled Kathal Pizza.

If you’re looking for wholesome nutrition after a fulfilling yoga session or just a hectic day, The Moon Village Curries & Meal Bowls come highly recommended. Find your bliss with some Ragi Idiyappam Khao Suey, Sri Lankan Egg Hoppers with Mushroom Xacuti, Chhole & Sweet Potato with Kerala Red Rice or Truffle Mushroom Baked Shakshuka with Neer Dosa.
