Bombay Urban Cafe - Al Barsha

Monday, August 27, 2018 1 Comments A+ a-

From full of my heart I love Goan food and Recently I visited a restaurant which serves the Bombay and Goa food with a little of their own touch to them. It is Bombay Urban Cafe which is located in Al Barsha, opposite to Sharaf DG metro station. Bombay Urban have a beautiful interiors which will take you to Portuguese houses in Goa. The crystal chandeliers, wall design, antique window hanged as a wall art.
The ambiance is amazing and even the instrumental music kind off soothes the mind. Dim lighting helps in setting the great mood. They have spacious seating area and live counters which you can see while seating. Parking is not an issue because they provide the valet parking in Rose Park hotel.
One important tip which I would like to give here is before placing orders ask them the quantity because it is really huge. Most of the items are shareable between three people.

What We Tried There:
  • Creamy Chicken Soup
  • Solkadhi
  • Nachos with Chicken Tikka Kheema
  • Vada Pav 
  • Gol Gappe Twist
  • Lal Maas 
  • Butter Chicken with Garlic Naan
  • Tawa Fried King Fish with Curry
  • Palak Paneer Lasagne
  • Assorted Mixed Grill
  • Butter Naan
  • Shahi Falooda
  • Pantua
  • Bombay Blast
  • Mango Mousses
  • Pomegranate Lemon Mint
To quench the thirst we had Bombay Blast which their best selling and signature drink, it is finely crushed ice with mix of watermelon and I think pomegranate. It instantly refreshes and relax the mood.

Our second drink was Mango Mousses, I expected it like Mango Lassi but this is pure mango plum with cream and dry fruits. It is amazing and I #LoveIt.

Starting with appetizer we had Creamy Chicken Soup, the mixed herbs flavor is delicious and the aroma is divine. It was a good start. Also the Solkadi which we normally have it after the meal to increase the metabolism. It had perfect tangy and sour flavor which is more of drink then soup.

For starters we had to go for Gol Gappe Twist, it is huge plate with Puri's. The stuffing given by them was delicious and you can add tamarind chutney with spicy mint chili water according to your liking. They have great variety of starters and salad which is a #MustTry.

Our second starter is a very famous street food among students or people who are in hurry in Bombay and they wanna eat something yummy and filling, it is a Vada Pav. It is a very basic dish but loved by so many people which is a #MustTry if you haven't tasted it yet. The fried potato dumpling served in traditional ladi pao with spicy chutney.

When we went through the menu this item just stuck in our mind and we got to try it out, it is Nachos with Chicken Tikka Kheema. Isn't that sound interesting!? The crispy nachos is topped with delicious chicken tikka kheema served with three different sides. It is amazing and unique idea for a starter, perfect to have with friends.

Next we started with the Main Course, I had to try out their kebab and grills so they got us their Assorted Mixed Grills. It had Chicken Tandoori, Kalimirch Kebab, Grilled Lamb Chops, Achari Fish Tikka, Grilled Prawns, Chicken Malai Tikka served with assorted condiments. They can make this platter according to number of people available like 2 or 4 or 8. It was fresh and flavorful, #MyFavorite was the Kalimirch Kebab.

Have you ever tried Veg Lasagne? I haven't, this is my first time. We had Palak Paneer Lasagne, my first impression by looking at it was WOW because it didn't look anything like what I imagined. Omg!I still have the taste in my mouth. I don't know how to put it deliciousness in words. I would just go there to have this. I #HighlyRecommend it to everyone even if you are non vegetarian.

Being a Goan I couldn't pass by the Tawa Fried King Fish,  it was cooked to perfection and was juicy. It was served along with the tempered rice and fish curry which is perfect combo for the price and is very much shareable between two people.

In meat we got to try out their Laal Maas, it is a mutton dish made with rajasthani spices and served with arabic sides and khubz. This is little bit spicy and the meat is perfectly cooked with amazing aroma. This is what a meat lover can enjoy to the fullest.

Lastly even though we were full the Manager Dinesh asked to have a bite of Butter Chicken because it was their specialty. We loved the creamy consistency and how juicy chicken was and fresh it was. They serve it along with Butter Naan.

After finishing our juices we tried one more which is Pomegranate Lemon Mint. The spritz of juice was refreshing and different from what I had tried before.

For dessert we had Shahi Falooda, it had flavors of saffron and rose with yummy rice noodles and khawa and dry fruits and nuts. It was very rich and heavy. The consistency is thick and looked very good. At the end of the meal it can be little difficult to finish it all so definitely do share it.

We also tried traditional bengali sweet which is Pantua, it is a cottage cheese fried and dipped in sugar syrup which is very similar to Gulab Jamun but it is different. I #LovedIt the warm and fresh flavor was amazing.
Overall Bombay Urban has a perfect way of presenting food which is very pleasing to eyes and you just wanna dive into it. The most amazing part is the quantity of the food which they serve and maintain the quality of food every time. This is going to be my new spot to have yummy Bombay and Goa food with urban twist. It looks little expensive but you will not regret spending it, every penny is worth it.
