Though Mumbai visits are always about binging on food for me, this time I decide to go light, keeping in mind a day full of meetings, and visit the Belgian sandwich chain Le Pain Quotidien, which literally means “the daily bread”. The place has efficient interiors, with the menu having light soups, salads, mains and drinks. It is a place clearly meant for office goers, who throng this place.

I start with a healthy looking Green Drink (Rs 195) which tastes as healthy as it looks. Ministrone Soup (Rs 265) is not remarkable.

Green apple and fennel salad with ginger, walnuts and balsamic dressing (Rs 425) and fresh watermelon and arugula salad with feta cheese and smoked maple mustard (Rs 425) are both competent.

Red spinach and corn tartine with sautéed mushrooms (Rs 395) with added salmon (Rs 175) is tasty and light. By the end of the starters I feel very green inside.

The mains look more like real food. I order fillet of freshwater tilapia with stir fried vegetables and vindaloo sauce (Rs 595) which is cooked just right and is quite enjoyable. My friend orders pan seared basa with organic quinoa and red rice risotto and caper beurre blanc (Rs 595) and enjoyed it as well.

Baba au Rhum (Rs 195) with a dollop of rum is just how desserts should be and we end the meal on a spirited note.

This is a place to come to if you want a light, guilt-free meal.
