Closing time for India's Iranian cafes
Asia Times Online / Raja Murthy

Iranian cafes are century-old landmarks in India's financial capital and
perhaps Asia's oldest surviving genre of restaurants. Their bun maska (crusty
buns split and spread with butter), kari (fluffy) biscuits

, custard
pies, puddings and paani kum chai (thick milky tea) are as much part of
cosmopolitan Mumbai as cheesecakes in New York

or croissants on the sidewalk
cafes in Paris. >>>
