1. Vodka Chicken Biryani- Tamasha
We all are aware of the healing power of a succulent biryani. But Tamasha, one of South Mumbai’s favorite party destinations has made the power two-fold by infusing some good ol’ vodka in it.

Apart from the biryani, which is totally vital, there are other lip-smacking dishes on the menu like the JD infused Dal Makhni, Wasabi Prawns and Guntur Chilli Chicken which are also worth a try!

Me and Aditya, our co-founder, were sitting for a coffee in the evening and the idea of bringing together two of the most loved things- ice cream and alcohol, struck us. We did a lot of research over few months and developed our magic vial which became this phenomenon called “Boozekraft”. No one apart from us is creating these freshly rolled alcohol infused ice creams and this gives us the pride of being the first and the best in the business.”
