Mumbai Local : A delicious journey

Mumbai is the city which epitomises the so called  American dream in a very Indianised sort of way. Every year countless people make their way to Mumbai not only to star in films but also to try their luck in India’s business districts. If you are hard working you can surely make it in Mumbai. And trying to capture this very filmy spirit of Mumbai in Kolkata comes the Mumbai Local. We were there for a KFF meet and here’s what we thought of it.


The Pao Bhaji Mastani was first up and we bet you haven’t had  a pao  bhaji that look and taste so sensational.

The Mumbaicha vada pao made up in the form of sliders was decent. The edible masala packets were intriguing to say the least.

The Kebab platter was so good that hardcore non vegeterians didn’t miss their meat. The paneer and especially the succulent mushrooms deserve a special word of appreciation.

The Dhobi Ghat Chola batura with its attractive and quirky presentation was simple and uncomplicated tastewise.<script async src=”//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js”></script>

To go with our food, we also sampled a few of their quirky cocktails and mocktails. The Beer Bath was a decent beer based sangria.

The Gola Barood which aimed to combine the fun and frolic of the good old golas and the legendary margherita was an unique concept but far too sweet for our liking.

The Mojito though refreshing lacked the hit of the alcohol. Among the mocktails, the Lights Camera Action and the Rapchik Raspberry were nice.

Up next were the truffle cheese dosa and the schezwan chow chow dosa. While the shezwan chow dosa was okayish, the truffle cheese dosa was to die for. The creamy mushrooms went beautifully with the well made dosa. And the supreme truffle cheese by the side to indulge in was divine. One single dish for which you should come back here!

For mains, we had the the multi grain khichdi, Rustam favourite dhansak, Berry pulao and the Okras. The Rustam favourite dhansak was our pick among the mains. There are very few places in Kolkata serving dhansak and that too a decent one. This place here absolutely nails it. The Berry pulao had a slight sweet hit about it without being overpowering. The crisp Okras were a perfect side to the rice based mains.

The Mango bath and the Mard Island were the desserts served. We liked the mango bath with its Alphonso goodness and butterscotch like flavour. The Mard island was a decent chocolate based dessert.

Although both the desserts were presented beautifully and we could  make out that a lot of thought and effort went in to the making of them, tastewise they fell a little flat compared to the mains previously.
