Prawns Koliwada, another seafood delicacy that owes it’s name to Koliwada area in Sion – Bombay, is available in many other cities now …. but cannot beat the original taste of joints such as Lamba at Chembur.
Lamba (located near Diamond Garden), used to be my favourite joint in early 90s and their Prawns Koliwada was to die for. The sight of an old Sardar ji frying prawns in a huge kadai, just before the hotel entrance, comes before my eyes even today.
This joint is still running strong under the management of next generation of Lambas but in a new avatar.
