Remembering Crown, Mahim


The iconic Crown Bakery in Mahim has made way for the Metro Line 3 project and locals have been ruing the end of the 63-year-old institution reports MumbaiMirror.


“Generations have grown up eating its brun maska and kheema pav, and spending leisurely evenings sipping on Irani chai” recalls  Roy Pereira.

Nandakumar Vijayakar echoes his sentiments. “Now no more queues for fresh hot pav, no more chicken cutlets, no more rum cakes,” he laments.

Established in 1954 by Khodaram Golabi, and later run by his grandson, Rohinton Khosravi and his elder brother, Crown Bakery Stores and Restaurant served generations of Mahim locals.
