Bombay Borough, the all-day eatery and bar opened on February 1st in DIFC Gate Village 3. A celebration of hyper-local Indian cuisine, Bombay Borough offers a carefully curated and reinvented selection of India’s unique ingredients, spices and flavors.
The spacious and multi-layered venue is spread across two floors and also features an al fresco dining area on the lush green terrace. The Indo-western interiors looks classy, elegant and sophisticated.
Bombay Borough has a botanist-inspired bar and The Gully Kitchen is their fast-casual kitchen that offers Indian fast food and food-on-the-go. While the main restaurant, bar and terrace is located on the first floor, The Gully Kitchen is on the ground floor.
Their menu is vast and varied, there is something for everyone. You can expect small plates, grills and large plates that are good for sharing along with an amazing selection of desserts. Being vegetarians, we only tried their veg dishes. Whether you’re a vegetarian/vegan or a meat eater or a seafood lover, Bombay Borough offers a wide range of options.
According to their team, they will be getting license within 2 weeks, and once they get license they will be serving alcohol. So we couldn’t try their cocktails and instead tried two of their refreshing mocktails- Pink City and Ooty Sunset.
We started off with Chutney Papad Tokri and it consisted of assorted crunchy papads with a range of homemade chutneys and relish. It was the best way to start an Indian meal.
The Bengal Pomelo Salad was a light and flavorful salad dressed in chili lime jaggery vinaigrette. Their exotic small plate Aam Papad Paneer had paneer and lotus stem tossed with special sun-dried mango and street food spices directly sourced from city of Amritsar.
Mini sized Chili Cheese Kulcha was a creative take on Mumbai’s famous chili cheese toast.
From their grills section of the menu we ordered Chargrilled Asparagus and Spiced Mushrooms. Both the dishes were grilled to perfection and packed with exquisite flavors.
For our mains we had Chatka Chole Kulche and Bombay Lunch Home Veg Curry and Banana Leaf Rice. Their delicious and authentic Chole and Kulche transported us to Punjab-India, the home of the popular Chole Kulche.
We absolutely loved the Bombay lunch home veg curry that had a medley of seasonal veggies simmered in Mumbai’s coastal masala. It had a rich and complex blend of over 20 spices. The curry was served with banana leaf rice. A must-try.
Amritsari Kulfa and Bombay Ice Cream Sandwich were the two desserts that we had. Both the desserts were deliciously divine and oh-so-scrumptious.
We ended our lunch with Karak Cutting Chai and it was served with a pair of rusk.
Our dining experience at Bombay Borough was incredible. The flavor, taste, presentation and plating of the food was excellent. The wonderful atmosphere and impeccable service enhanced our overall experience.
