    Micke's Place

    Chulia Street is massively jam-packed with big breakfasts, coffees, pastries and street food galore. Fueled with gastronomic vibes, we discovered a little lively restaurant along Love Lane serving Lamb briyani that charms your tastebuds. Micke’s Place has breathed innovative and rustic backdrop that sets it apart from other cafes – swamp of signatures harmonising the walls, classic ornaments and old-school photos. The briyani is aromatic, lusciously laden with chunks of tender lamb meat and paired with refreshing raitha and piping hot curry. Being a minuscule cafe, you’ll definitely by hook or crook squeeze into the last available seat to pleasure your palate. End with their Masala tea, which is rich and complements the zesty aftertaste of the briyani

    Tips

    Try their richly spiced Chicken Tikka and Chicken Wings, too.

    Things to expect

    Welcoming owner, array of succulent food and unique ambiance.

    Best with

    Masala Tea.
