Parle East’s only cool bar has got a makeover and is now the bar to beat all bars. Owned by Parsis and run by South Indians, Café Mailoo offers you cheap booze and good food in a great setting. The décor makes you want to sit around even if you don’t drink alcohol, the prices are very reasonable, and the service – there are only two-three waiters handling the non-ac section, but they’re always running around and smiling all the time, so you don’t mind waiting a bit longer to get your refill.
They have a family section upstairs, which makes it a perfect hangout for suicide bombers. I’ve wasted whole afternoons and evenings at this bar drinking whisky (the draught beer isn’t fresh) and eating kababs, and can tell you that everything on the menu is worth a try and you won’t have to pay through your nose for anything. Café Mailoo should be every suburban barfly’s second home.
