Bombay Borough- Infusing the familiar with the unexpected

Visited this absolutely stunning fine dining restaurant, located in the Gate Village, DIFC.

Love the ambiance… art was in every corner, a place for art lovers like us. With plenty of seating area inside as well as outside, a perfect place to dine in with family or friends. The staff was welcoming as well. From the menu selection to serving everything was top notch.

Coming back to food, they served us the Papad tokri with assorted chutney. A perfect Indian starter. Followed by the cute Chilli cheese kulcha… cute bite sized kulcha stuffed with cheese … just melts in your mouth… yumm.

As per the suggestion of our talented server Patrick, we tasted their delicious Kashmiri Naan Kebab.. a foot long seekh kebab served with naan, chutney, dip & salad. As delicious as it looks.

We also tried the Rajputana Murg Soola… coarsely ground, robust spices flavors these kebab, which are traditionally cooked on large flaming skewers, reminiscents of Rajpoot warriors. … a must to try dish.

Then comes in the very delicious Aam Papad Paneer… paneer & lotus stem tossed with special sundried mango & street food spices, directly sourced from Amritsar.

From the main course section, we choose to have the signature style Bombay Dabba Gosht… Served with Chur chur paratha. Lamb marinated in yogurt, brown onions & green cardamon. Baked with Bombay Bohri style, topped with fried egg. A must to try curry well accomplished with the paratha.

Next main Course was Apricot Salli Chicken… tangy chicken curry cooked in Bombay Parsi Style with stewed apricots … topped with potato crisps served with Rumali roti… this is something I had never tried & loved it a lot.

We also had the chicken Tikka Kebab Biryani, this dum biryani rice itself can be had stand alone.

All the dishes were perfectly cooked, quality of the ingredients were the star of every dish served here.

From the drinks menu we had the Ooty sunset.. which was a blend of elderflower, tincher, lime, cardamom. Pink City… blend of Guava, raspberry & lemongrass & Aam Khaas… mango & mint lemonade. All three were equally unique & refreshing.

Dessert were as always the Showstopper Ras-e-Aam … Bengali rasgulla nested in rich rabri topped with Gujrati Aam ras … a drool worthy dessert & Flourless Dark chocolate bar… homemade & dense with a crunch of sesame & jaggery crumble. A dessert for the health conscious ones.

To sum it all …. for me Bombay Borough is a place where I would like to over & over again. Highly recommended!!!!
