As the city trudges back to normal — with scores of young adults and millennials making their way into restaurants after months of being cooped up indoors, the lure of ordering in while you cosy up on a rainy afternoon and Netflix the weekend evening away is a tough one to fight. For those of us who love to make the most of couching time, here’s a list of cloud kitchens that won’t disappoint.
Cúra: The Gourmet Take-House
Helmed by head chef Vansh Khanna, the food delivery service is trending on social media (IG, we mean) and off it. Order up some of its best-selling contemporary Indian bites and burgers. The outlet takes orders from 12 pm to 2 pm and 6 am — 12 am (except Mondays).
How to order: You can order directly via www.curamumbai.in or +918591179133 or through Zomato/Swiggy.
What to order/ speciality: While it’s always a great idea to listen to your gut and place an order based on your cravings, if you’d like going by the rulebook, here are some of the items to choose from – Truffle malai thyme tikka, 48 hours cooked smoked dal makhani, jalapeño chicken tikka, basil spinach tikka masala, hand-cut truffle fries, portobello mushroom burger, butter chicken kulcha pockets.
Dilli Accent is a casual Indian, vegetarian delivery kitchen that serves up delicious North Indian food with an innovative twist on authentic Indian flavours.

P.S: The outlet serves vegan specialities too.
This one’s probably an old favourite. But, given the cult following the outlet enjoys, Behrouz finds a spot on our list for myriad reasons. The cloud kitchen is largely popular for its prompt deliveries and massive portions.
