Canada-born, U.S.-raised, Mumbai-based: chef Kelvin Cheung embodies the global flavor that’s infusing the Indian city these days. He first made a name for himself in Mumbai when he took over the reigns at Ellipsis in the historic Colaba district, and earned it rave reviews during his three-year stint. He returned to the States in 2015, but Mumbai’s draw proved too strong to stay away for long, and he returned later that year to open two new restaurants in quick succession, this time in the hip Bandra suburb. When he’s not overseeing things in the kitchens at One Street Over or Bastian, he’s working out at CrossFit, getting a caffeine fix at Koinonia Coffee Roasters, or checking out the street art in the Kala Ghoda neighborhood. Here, he shares his insider’s guide to Mumbai.
