Its been few weeks back we got an opportunity to have our brunch at renowned Indian restaurant in Dubai –Mint Leaf London ;a restaurant which gives a modern twist to the traditional Indian dishes,located on 15th floor of Emirate Financial Tower in DIFC Area , overlooking Burj Khalifa. It is considered as a classic spot for meet ups.
With all these things in mind our expectation were on peek high .We pre-booked our brunch one week back ,costed Aed 320 per person inclusive of Alcohol Beverages & Cocktails , you can also opt for Aed 195 if you don’t want drinks.
This brunch we booked was a Christmas brunch with 5 Courses of Food + Dessert + Drinks , this is the overall brunch menu .What specialty in brunching here is we don’t need to stand in a line to get our food , it is served on our table ..sounds good ..and don’t worry they are ready to offer us how much more we need 🙂 ya i liked that concept… we can sit peacefully and enjoy our food neither looking at the food queue nor with a weird feeling that food may fall from our plate on the round of walking .
They started the Course 1 with Street Food the famous traditional Indian Chaat –Papadi sev Chaat & Masala Chana Chaat quantity was perfect not to waste , about the taste it was good but definitely can give more beauty to the dish .
Course 2 : Tandoors & Grills
This course is all about veg ,started with the healthy veg Tandoori Broccoli , it was a new taste for my palate .. i should say i had a good gastronomic experience .
Followed by Subz Quinoa Seekh ,its a mixed vegetable Seekh Kebab with Tamarind chutney , personally this was not a great item for me but loved the tangy taste of chutney.
In between we were taking zips from our juices and Cocktails. One more important thing for parents to note -here don’t expect a baby chair , they had specially mentioned at the time of booking, we have to manage them in normal chair , i was lucky that he has discontinued his baby chair , after-all he is a big boy now ..all set ready to take his first steps to school .
Course 3 of Non-Veg Murg Ka Sule ,Chicken Lahori Boti & Lamb Seekh Kabab … all in pretty good levels of chilly so had my juice zips in between to balance the taste 🙂 for my boy they have prepared the same with less chilly ..taste was good ,especially the chicken was tender and juicy.
Now the room started filling up with different people.They served in a professional way that courses comes perfectly in time and they were ready to offer any help to us . In between the meals i was looking around to enjoy the beauty of place , nevertheless it would be more good if we go at night with beautiful lights around , no doubt it would be classy .
Yeah its time for our 4th course and my hubster with his 2nd cocktail i still zipping with my orange juice ..this course was something great has to offer for sea food lovers with Anchari Hamour , Mustard & Herb Marinade Salmon , Sigri Prawns ,i liked this from all the courses with respect to its taste & flavor.
5th course came as flat lay with Turkey Biriyani escorted with roti, Mushroom Do Piaza , Subz Kali Mirch , Punjabi Chicken Masala , Lamb Bhoona .
Biriyani is one of my treasured dish of all time , I just love the whiff of spices and blend of flavors in it,In different subcontinent this dish has contrary variations claiming their twist is the best , had a good Biriyani twist from Mint Leaf though i cannot say its the best biriyani i have tasted .But always trying new gives happiness and all these curries were appetizing. .My tough eater is still zipping with his watermelon .
Courses are almost over and its time for our food stopper on table The Dessert.A Plate with Chocolate brownie , Ras malai (with out the juice ) ,Passion fruit cheese cake and Mince Pie ..taste was average not met wit our expectation and definitely suggests for more options .
For an experience , for an ambiance , for good Indian food i suggest to give this place a try.See you back in my next food journey with more interesting food.
