Meet the Mumbai experts
Food bloggers, a well-known critic and two ad filmmakers whittled down their list of essential Mumbai dining experiences and somehow remained friends
Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal
Blogger at A Perfect Bite, gastronomy columnist, "My Mumbai Cookbook" author, food stylist and food consultant -- Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal wears enough hats to put any chef (or writer for that matter) to shame.
She also leads cooking classes and food tours in Mumbai, both of which she conducts while running a food consultancy service.
She loves to make jams and jellies.
A journalist with the "Economic Times" in Mumbai, Doctor has specialized in writing on food issues for the past 12 years.
Khamgaonkar is a writer, award-winning ad film director and food blogger currently scripting his first Bollywood movie.
He compiled Mumbai's Best Eats package while photographing and testing the dishes recommended by our expert panel.
Sankarson Banerjee is a self-described "chubby, dedicated foodie who talks far too much for anyone's good except when eating."
He cycles a lot when off duty from his job as a CIO in the financial sector. Even though most of that pedaling is from eatery to eatery, he doubts the chubby epithet is going away anytime soon.
His excellent blog is Lotsafood.
Ad filmmaker Kunal Kapoor is part of an extended family that is "extremely passionate about films and food."
That's how he puts it. What he doesn't often say is that he's actor Shashi Kapoor's son, and Raj Kapoor's grandson.
"Any meeting with a member of our family and you can bet your last dollar the topic of discussion will be food and film," Kapoor says.
Over the last 15 years as a director of ads, Kapoor has traveled the world. While he's packing, family and friends give him lists of restaurants to try instead of sights to see.
