This café is usually packed every night we passed by. The ambiance is trendy, showcasing funny quotes in Hindi and refurbished furniture with a very colorful vibe.
We arrived less than an hour before closing that’s why we were able to get a seat. Instead of browsing on the menu, we asked for their recommendations and here are the dishes we ordered.
Akuri pav- this is the same as burji but different. It is more similar to what my mom cooks where only salt and pepper is available to add taste to the egg, onions and tomato. It’s like scramble eggs with onion and tomato that I can cook at home and even better.
Mithibai Grill Sandwich- this is similar to the classic Bombay Grill Sandwich but cheesier. This is famous among college students and causes nostalgia among hipsters working here in Dubai… I liked the sandwich as it is loaded with cheese both on the inside and the outside. In addition to the cheese, it is also topped with shredded beetroot which adds color and nutrients. I think this is the sandwich I saw on a video once. It was prepared on the streets of India that made me curious with Indian street food. This is something I highly recommend.
Pav Bhaji- they serve it in this metal lunch boxes or tiffins that my classmates used when I was in elementary. Unique way of serving and a great idea to have Pav Bhaji at work or school too. It would have been better if the taste compensated the unique presentation. I got so ecstatic with the way it looks that I had expected so much on its taste. The bhaji was not as tasty as I have expected, not sure if they altered it because Filipinos usually don’t like spicy food (not me).
