The Blitz and Suburbia: Part 2 - The Little Door
Andheri personifies a lot of what makes up the hustle and bustle that people identify Mumbaikars with. Tiny old building mixed with searing tall skyscrapers adds to the allure and charm of living in the biggest suburb of Mumbai. However, Andheri is not always all glitz and glamour; the searing afternoon heat, suffocating traffic and seemingly perennial infrastructure repair work that dots the streets, all contribute to the colourful flavour that characterizes this mammoth suburb.

The Little Door in Lokhandwala, Andheri West, is an apt example of an establishment that successfully embodies the typical Andheri?Mumbaiya spirit. The small blue door that you have to climb to get into the pub is a nice conversation starter. Once inside, the décor is quaint and has a surreptitious Mediterranean feel to it. The sprightly garden chairs and circular tables give one the impression of being ever so close to a beach. The Little Door is very generous with funk and lounge music, making this a highly recommended place for a relaxing afternoon siesta lunch to unwind with friends, perhaps with a choice bottle of Blackdog Whisky.

The restaurant serves up quite a bevy of cuisines, including Italian, Greek, and even Spanish. Some of their signature dishes include the Peppered Steak, Shrimp Brochette and highly recommended tequila chicken. The Italian cuisine seems to be the crowd?s choice as the Pizzas and Pastas all taste very good and are excellently prepared. The alcohol is also reasonably priced, and they offer some tempting happy hour offers. Those who want to experiment should try some of the many cocktails offered, some choice ones being the Turkish Roulette?a perfect blend of Vodka, Gin, and Melon Liquor?and the aptly name Therapist?a distinct mix of Whisky with apples, cloves, and masala tea spice. The deserts too are surprisingly delectable, especially the Irish cream tiramisu, which is sure to launch your taste buds into a sweet oblivion. Book your table to avoid the wait ? The Little Door
