In today's day and age, going to a restaurant/cafe/bar isn't just about ordering your food/drinks, eating/drinking and leaving. Before anyone can touch their food, we take our phones out and open the most popular social media app around and upload pictures of what we're eating and every millenial would agree that Instagram has changed the dynamics of dining experience to another level. From my recent visit to a restaurant in SoBo, the simple amalgamation of comfort food that’s easy on the eyes and the palate, and the picturesque scenario is occupied by Happy House Kitchen (HHK) that has opened its doors in the breezy waterfront of Girgaum Chowpatty is exactly what Instagram feeds on. 

From the minds that brought you Spices & Flavours and The Bar Terminal, the prodigious trio of Dev Sanghvi, Harshal Shah and Sameer Sanghvi are now serving up unadulterated happiness with their newest venture, a carefree eatery that promises to serve symphonious vegetarian delights for your mood and your tastebuds.

Ambience

In keeping with the homely vibe that the nomenclature evokes, the interiors at Happy House Kitchen have designed to offer just that - a humble burst of colours, served and packaged with loving care to offer a homely spot that’ll have you staying for a second helping and a few more. With the simplicity of nature serving as muse, the contemporary decor features a generous offering of flowers, trellises and classic motifs against a backdrop of striking orange juxtaposed against the comforting minimalism of white. House shaped lights add a unique charm across a ‘Happiness wall’ that juxtaposes 24 visual boards incorporating a rotating amateur art gallery for Mumbai’s young artists.


The restaurant is also home to ‘the jovial knick-knack thrift shop’ – a pop-up corner where one can collaborate and sell their wares, as long as they make someone’s life better! 


Menu

The menu offers an assortment of quick bites for those on-the-go, including Heaven From The Oven (baked churchur dough balls), Vietnamese Maggi Rolls (homemade momos stuffed with Maggi noodles) and To Aaloo Amigos (coal-roasted baby potatoes). Those looking to keep their healthy living mojo alive will find a refreshing respite with the salads, featuring everything from anti-aging cranberries and organic Himalayan apples to wafer-thin avocado.

My personal favourite was Chipotle Ka Kamal. These were crisp fried lotus stems marinated in spicy chipotle sauce and it was yum! The sauce was mind blowing and the perfect crisp of the lotus stem made it a quick bite which you couldn't stop munching on.

The nuanced offering is a testament to the culinary prowess of the talented chefs working behind the scenes, spanning quesadillas, dimsums and flatbreads to offer something for every mood and taste profile. The beverage menu is headlined by the Shocktails that deliver on their promise with Modak Morya, Tamarind Khatta and Kaffir Cola. We tried the cola and it was indeed refreshing on a summer evening.

The desserts section was also pretty interesting with options like Pool of Nutella, which is Nutella in a tart, topped with sea salt and milk chocolate. The other dessert we tried was Glass Tiramisu, which was the classic sponge loaded with Mascarpone Cream and Dark Coffee. I liked the Tiramisu better than the tart because the latter didn't carry the flavour of Nutella as much as expected. They also have the Chocolate Bomb (mousse cake layered with dark chocolate, French chocolate biscuit, whipped cream and cherry sauce), White Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake among other options. 

Speaking about Happy House Kitchen, co owner Harshal Shah told Mumba Live, 

The main focus was to have a vegetarian space with creative global food. With new generation exploring & travelling the world, we wanted to give the vegetarians a taste and chance to grab their favourite food with an Indian twist. Happy House Kitchen is one such restaurant that infuses foreign dishes into our Indian food with  vegan, gluten free and keto options.

So if you are looking to grab a veggie bite which is a fusion between international delicacies and an Indian touch, Happy House Kitchen is a good place to visit. It's a nice, warm, family place, which will make you feel comfortable from the moment you step in.
