Went to what is called Dawa Bazar around Dhobhi Talao to buy homeopathic medicine for a colleague and the Parsi Dairy Farm was nearby. So, out came the camera, focussed on the venerable institution and “click”, it went.
The Parsi Dairy Farm has been around as far I have been, and I have been hearing about its saccharine offerings since childhood. It is well-known for its halwas, barfis, rasmalai and what have you. On the way to it, we pass another institution – Kayani – which sells undoubtedly Bombay’s best brun maska.
Quite close is Sassanian, also famous for its cakes, another yummy eating place, now though showing the wear of years. Quite close is dark temptations, with its delightful pastries and cakes.
I would name the entire area “Bakers’ Street” or something going by the cakes and goodies on offer, or, for that matter “Cake Street” would do fine. The Parsis like their food and they cook it well, I mean, they use the best ingredients. Hats off to this enterprising community.
