Another new location, this time in Malad, proves that Mumbaikars love robust and chatpata Indo-Chinese fare. There are special sections for vegetarians at these pleasant, large and bright restaurants with Chinese paintings and table-bench furniture. At all five locations, they serve up generous portion sizes overflowing with spices (too much at times; pair with a drink like Long Island Iced Tea) in dishes like Burnt Chilli Rice, Exotic Hot Wok (veg) and Burnt Hot Wok Chicken. Crab in Schezuan and Burnt Chilli Sauce or Schezuan Noodles? Chilli Pepper Chicken or Butter Garlic Prawns? It's this variety and the excellent desserts (Death by Chocolate and Chocolate Mud Cake) that keep these cheery eateries buzzing. Our pick? Fortune Rice and Roast Chilli Chicken. Cap it off with Sizzling Brownie, heaped generously with ice cream or Rocky Road. As this book goes to press, 5 Spice is planning to open yet another outlet in Borivali.
