BSF Book Club

We’ve been open for seven months and it’s been an amazing journey! We’ve settled into our beautiful space at 828 Bay Street and have met so many wonderful people. It’s been a joy to share our food and concept with Toronto. We are so grateful for the warm welcome we have received and for the continued support of family and friends (new and old!).

 

We feel grateful to be part of the Bay Street community. Cultivating and strengthening this sense of community is very important to both of us. With that in mind we’ve starting hosting some amazing events at Bombay Street Food:

 

BSF Yoga

BSF Yoga

Every Saturday morning, Rabia Basharullah brings her expertise to BSF with a relaxing, invigorating yoga class in our space. Rabia is a patient, encouraging instructor who makes the class beneficial for participants of all levels. Prior to class, everyone receives a detoxifying Ayurvedic hot beverage made with lime juice, honey and ginger. Following the class, participants have the option to have a prix fixe Ayurvedic breakfast with such choices as a Quinoa Coconut Porridge, a Masala Omelet with Salad or anything else from our breakfast menu.  It’s a fantastic, healthful way to start the weekend.

 

BSF Book Club

BSF Book Club

What’s better than a good book on a cold day? Pair it with a hot cup of chai and it’s a magical combo! We’re staying warm at BSF with our BSF Book Club: The last Wednesday of every month we meet here from 7-9pm to partake in some literary discussion and good food. Hosted by acclaimed journalist, Aparita Bhandari, the book club begins with a prix fixe dinner at 7pm. After dinner, the participants gather to discuss the book of choice. In October, we discussed Arundhati  Roy’s The God of Small Things and our November choice was Jhumpa Lahiri’s Pulitzer Prize-winning anthology, The Interpreter of Maladies. We’ve been blown away by the response to our book club – each event has been well attended with great dialogue and such thought provoking commentary from Aparita and our cultured guests. On January 25th, we welcome the author, Mahtab Narsimhan to Bombay Street Food. Aparita will be interviewing Mahtab about her successful novel, The Tiffin. Registration is available at
