Mumbai, India, 2020: This festive season, while travelling doesn’t seem to be on the cards any time soon, Oye Kake launches in a brand new avatar, with new additions made to the menu and new interiors, and with more varieties of authentic, Amritsari culinary delights which will transport you instantly to the fun dining vibe of Punjab. With extensive research into refining the menu, the Oye Kake team revisited the idea of the ‘breadbasket of India’ and has added exclusive items to the menu, bringing an all new experience after 9 years of offering delicious food at its most authentic self.
The charm and uniqueness of Oye Kake definitely lies in the way it is designed. Interior designer Saniya Kantawala and her team took inspiration from the many mud covered homes in the villages of Punjab; rustic and simple. The brand colours of Oye Kake are Orange, Red, Purple White and Mustard since it was important to reflect these colours in the restaurant without compromising on the base earthen tones. The colours meander the ceiling like vibrant vines in a restaurant space that is both modern and uniquely Punjabi.
As pioneers of Vegetarian Punjabi food, Oye Kake has been satiating our Punjabi food cravings since 9 years. Known for its unique flavors while keeping its memorable Amritsari taste intact over the years, Oye Kake has evolved for their patrons to explore more vegetarian options under the brand roof of fun dining. The feeling of dining at Oye Kake is going to be one of a kind, with typical, gregarious Punjabi vibes as the ceiling of the restaurant is covered with 40,000 colorful bangles spread over the entire restaurant, representing the colour and spirit of Punjab.
When it comes to food, no Punjabi meal is complete without lassi, a staple drink for a Punjabi. As an ode to the drink, Oye Kake has come up with a novel Lassi Bar that comprises of more than (20) twenty different flavours of lassi with 5 to 6 toppings of wide options to choose for your lassi on the table. While there is no doubt that all dishes served at Oye kake are nothing but innovative and delicious since the beginning, they have also conjured up new dishes like saundhe methi paneer, sabjiyo ka quiche, three cheese kulcha, malai paratha, kathal ki biryani, moong matki daal, Amritsari chaats, and many such more delights. As a replacement for chips, they have a super snack called ‘Kurkure Bhindi” and hand churned, old-school ice creams, for a smoother and creamier taste.
Langars are served at all Sikh gurudwaras, which is termed to be very auspicious. Golden Temple in Amritsar serves large langar spreads for all the worshipers who come to pray at the GOLDEN TEMPLE.
Oye Kake with all their efforts have managed to bring people closer to not just relish Amritsari food but to their very own tradition of serving Langar. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic which affected millions, there are children who cannot afford a proper meal and are still struggling to get their daily bread. To support them, every Sunday, Oye Kake would be serving their patrons Langar for Rs 599. With every langar meal being ordered in the restaurant, a child would be fed a meal by Oye Kake.
This time Oye Kake comes with a Bigger, Better and Improved version of the original at a new location in Lower Parel. Located in the same compound as its predecessor, the upgraded new Oye Kake is in a newly constructed building, giving it a fresh look, ready to welcome its patrons. It’s time to indulge and enjoy the true flavours of Punjab at the new version of Oye Kake in the heart of Mumbai!
