The familiar mixes nicely with the unexpected in Bombay Brasserie’s eclectic new menu.  “Bombay Brasserie focuses on flavours that have never been tried before, twisting traditional recipes to suit today’s tastes. We use regionally-sourced ingredients, like aam papad from Amritsar, kashundi from Bengal and malwani masala from the Konkan belt. After much research and trial, the menu showcases recipes from across India that are completely unique. A culinary journey begins here, at Bombay Brasserie,” says brand director Shikha Nath.  

The starters, hot plates, street grills, paired curries, in mains, biryanis, accompaniments like ‘high chai’ treat or desserts like Grandma’s choco treat to Bombay ice cream sandwich come with a touch of excitement. The new menu also offers a selection of indigenous Indian teas with accompaniments like Bun-Paos, Bombay Toasties, Chaats, Small Plates and Roti-Roll-Parathas.
