Mumbai essentials: buzzing new spots!

Once again Mumbai! 
This is my  4th post on the buzzing India city. 
Every time we go we find some new places. New discoveries and the old classics make the gastronomy during each trip a wonderful experience. 
Spending time with family, shopping & having fun in noisy Mumbai during the monsoon is unique. 
Mumbai has a tropical wet and dry climate. 
Monsoon is from June to August,  and post monsoon are the best months to go: December to February
