My dear readers,
I went last Friday to have lunch at Bombay Brasserie located on the 4th floor of Taj Dubai Hotel in Business Bay.
Bombay Brasserie is a tryst between classic and contemporary.
A dining experience here, promises drama, authenticity & innovation with a live open kitchen, vibrant oversized art and a botanical bar concept.
The vibrant interiors and low-level lighting set a sophisticated and relaxed dining experience for fashionable diners.
You can choose between a Set Menu, a Tasting Menu or a La Carte.
We asked the waiter and he recommended us the Seafood BB Samudra Manthan that is priced at 495 dhs per person.
You have the choice between sitting on a regular dining table or even at the bar.
If you sit at the Bar, you can enjoy seeing the chef cooking.
The painting on the wall is amazing!
Bombay Brasserie has a lounge area that opens in the evening only.
Guest can come to have a drink first then go to the restaurant to have dinner.
That was my Mocktail, I can’t recall the name and the juices that were in it.
But I remember that it had rose water and do you know why I didn’t forget that?
Because I was never able to stand the smell of rose water.
So when the waiter recommended me this mocktail, I was hesitating at the beginning but then I decided to go for it and give it a try!
There is always a beginning for something new 🙂
And oh yeah, how I enjoyed this mocktail! For the first time in my life I enjoyed a drink that contains rose water.
The Amuse Bouche was 2 small slices of Green Apple with Beetroot Paste and Masala Spices.
Let’s start with the starters 🙂
The plate has all the below:
The Tawa Scallops, spiced scallops with tomato lentil relish was divine.
The Malabar Crab, curry leaf and pepper crab was crunchy and so yummy.
The Bhatti Prawns, chargrilled prawns with robust spice rub was a bit spicy for me but with the help of the cheese you can see in the plate on the left, it was easy to eat. Ah yes, for me only, because I cannot eat very spicy food but if you are fine with spiciness, you will enjoy it to the max!
And the Sarson Maach, scottish salmon with chili and yogurt was soft and mouthwatering.
The Kagaz Wali Machim, mustard sea bass in a parchment was delicious. You won’t believe that at first I thought that it was a sea bass sandwich. I thought it was a bread, lol. Good that I asked the waiter before eating.
The Dal Tadka, yellow lentils, dry red chili and garlic was again a bit too spicy for me but I managed to eat a bit of it.
The Jhinga Allepey Curry, tangy prawns and green mango are to die for.
The Cochin Lobster Curry, lobster in coconut milk and curry leaf is super delicious, a must try.
The Prawn Biryani was so tasty and flavorful.
We usually always eat mutton or chicken biryani but that day I was able to try the prawn biryani and I loved it so much.
The Angoori Rasmalai was light and not so sweet 🙂
I highly recommend you to try Bombay Brasserie, you will love it and you will thank me for my recommendation.
