Short description- in case u r in a hurry
We got to know of this restaurant from the social media and decided to pay a visit
Turned out to be a mid sized beautiful eatery in a glossy monster of a building in BKC.
Admire the creativity of the person who designed and planned the restaurant and also the menu card.
Creativity of the chef and team is extraordinary for sure.
The boys Were nice people but still not used to all dishes. They could hardly recommend dishes. I asked how big is the portion of mohinga. He said he will ask and come back. After 3 minutes he came back and told ‘it is a soup’!!!! Of course it is but I had asked the size
They did not have quite a few very interesting signature drinks/dishes that were on the menu – Royal Bengal mojito (white rum, pineapple, gondhoraj lemon, mint, gut syrup, tonic and ice), Signature buff pastrami etc.
Menu on zomato in page of this restaurant is the bangalore menu. Mumbai menu is different. We realized when we ordered Cochin mackerel on the toast that we had seen on zomato. Very strange mistake on part of PR / marketing team.
Menu card was descriptive and had good details of the food.
Loved the food. Wud recommend to all.
Detailed description- in case u hv the time to njoy reading:
We started our evening with Burmese mohinga – it had fish and rice noodle soup, sea bass fish , shrimp and peanuts. Loved the ‘super subtle yet confident to make a statement’ broth. Flavours of seafood made its presence felt. Shrimps were dunked in at the perfect time to ensure they r not chewy. seabass was flaky and very enjoyable with the skin. Rate the dish 4.25/5
For starter we ordered Soft eggs and andouille sausages on sourdough toast. The sourdough toast, inspite of bearing the load of all the toppings, displayed a strong character. Loved the bread and it’s crispness as it is and of course with everything else.
The Green mustard spread was very very good. smoked Bandel cheese, cream cheese and gin mustard hollandaise did magic on the plate.
The pork sausage was insane. It was not juicy, crumbly, did not have a proper casing, yet it was wonderful- in terms of both flavours and taste.
Eggs could not have been more ‘perfectly soft’.
Incredible dish. Rate it 4.75/5
Our next starter was Poached kokum shrimp – it had a kokum and coconut broth, had pickled prawn in the center and was topped with prawn crackers.
The kokum reduction was super enjoyable with its tangy taste. He shrimps were very fresh and excellent. The pickled prawns were heaped in the center and exuded robust flavours and taste. Prawn crackers had lost the crispness though.
Admire the medley of all these avatars of prawn. Rate it 4.5/5
Duck tacos were recommended by our server. Ragi and jowar was used to make the tacos and that gave it nice texture. pickled cucumbers, radish , perilla seeds and hoisin glaze filled the taco along with some nice duck meat. Very nice I Wud say. Rate it 4.25/5
We had Pan seared salmon for mains. It was served with butter sauce and dill oil , caramelised mushrooms with fennel seed and pepper , sweet onions and sautéed amaranth leaves.
Cud not stop munching on those outstanding mushrooms. The sautéed and slightly charred amaranth leaves weregreat to munch on.
The fish had a super crunchy skin, was flaky and was super juicy. It was bursting out with flavours. Rate it 4.75/5
For dessert we ordered filter coffee dessert. It had a crispie, drops of filter coffee gel, coffee ice cream and coffee cream base. Unmissable for coffee lovers. Others might give it a pass (might find it too bitter and too strong coffee flavor). Loved this every bit. Rate it 4.25/5
Overall rating of food at toast and tonic averages out to 4.5/5
Look forward to revisiting
