The Best Fish in Mumbai
Everyone talks about the benefits of eating fish. Every dietician, nutritionist and health care specialist will tell you how beneficial fish is for you, especially if you’re on a mission to lose weight.
As a Punjabi meat lover, telling me I can eat fish when I am dieting is liking introducing a toddler to a candy store.
And now that I have moved to Mumbai, I am on a quest to find seafood joints where I can give in to my cravings without feeling guilty.
