Let’s talk about food :
They are serving authentic and delicious food all the way from Mumbai. Menu is curated by renowned Chef Saby but we can’t miss the hard work of their executive Chef Pawan Bisht, who is very much talented and an expert of Bombay’s cuisine.
In our conversation with Chef Pawan , he told us about the menu in which all the impeccable dishes from streets of Bombay to luxuriant restaurants of the city are available.
Mumbai is home to various communities like parsi, maharashtrian , gujarati, bohri etc. They are also serving all the exotic dishes from these communities. In short , you’d get to taste all the flavors of Mumbai.
We started with their Signature Cocktails – Sparkling Lollipop and Persian. Sparkling Lollipop is a festive & sweet concoction served with Grape Popsicle. Persian is a peach flavored vodka based cocktail.It was also very good in taste. Both the drinks are recommended.
On our gastronomical journey we tried Prawn Aglio Olio , Stuffed Daal ka Chilla , Khandvi Chaat, Mhd. Ali Chicken Boti Kebab, Irani Mutton Pulao and Bhaijaan Seekh Paratha.
Prawn Aglio Olio : Prawns cooked with garlic and oil (Aglio Olio) along with olives, tomato , white wine and basil. Listed under the section of Colaba cafe this dish is perfect for prawn lovers.
Stuffed Daal Ka Chilla : From the Parsi cuisine, Paneer bhurji stuffed inside the lentil crepe and boy it was yum , had one after the another.
Khandvi Chaat : Another one from Patel Bhai, something you won’t get in Delhi easily. It’s delicious yet guilt free authentic snack. Recommended !!
Mhd. Ali Chicken Boti Kebab: Soft and Succulent kebabs served with mint sauce from the Mumbai’s famous food street, Mohammed Ali Road. Recommended !!
Irani Mutton Berry Pulao: Well it was my favorite dish of the night. Mutton so soft, scrumptious and full of flavors with berries which gives a nice sweet taste. Must Try !!
Bhaijaan Seekh Paratha: Our tummy was almost but still chef got this one for us. First bite and it was so good that finished it within 5 minutes. One of the best mutton seekh we had lately. Must Try !!
For desserts we had Bombay Mava Cheesecake and Caramel Custard. Both the desserts were equally good. The texture , color and aroma of Caramel Custard was superb.
Overall it was really an amazing experience with different concept , stylish ambience and scrumptious food.
