So, if you’re as big of a dip lover as me, read on to discover your next stop for your dip fix in Mumbai.
Crack open one of their premium dips at your next get-together and find yourself becoming the star of the evening.

Holding a 9-year long reputation for their super scrumptious dips with zero preservatives, they’re known to elevate the dip game with their unique choices like the nutty and spicy Chunky Thai dip, the Middle Eastern specialty Muhammara or the spicy North African Harissa dip which even doubles up as a sauce for marinating and stir-fries. Some of their bestsellers are the Red Pepper dip, the Layered Mediterranean dip, Greek Yogurt with Caramelized Onions and the classic Olive Tapenade. They even prepare other kinds of dips for exhibitions or special deliveries, such as the Creamy Corn Dip.
