We do want to go to places without really travelling, as the busy and hectic schedule of ours leaves us with no option. London Taxi, first look is enough to make you feel like being at London, exploring a new place requires Taxi hopping, but here you don’t need a Taxi to try and experience the various delicacies from all around the London. It’s located in Kamala mills, right opposite Farzi Café and is about 2.9 kms from the Lower Parel Station.
The place is difficult to miss with all the bling and quintessential of London, the ceiling making its way for the London Tube Map. The interiors are perfectly lit with popping chairs. The place has a Lounge at the ground floor, fine dining on the first floor and rooftop, about to begin on the top floor. The place has something for everyone.
We started with Rose Apple Soda: The mocktail is a perfect blend of rose shrubs, red Apple juice, topped with Soda and garnished with Rose petals, refreshing and delicious indeed.
Hibiscus Pomegranate Soda: Combination of Hibiscus, Kokum, infused with pomegranate shrubs, topped with soda, out and out refreshing.
In appetizers we started with Plum and Soya Glazed Warm Chicken Salad: Chicken breast is slow cooked giving Smokey flavors with sauces, mushroom, Bakchoy, water chestnut, garnished with glass noodles and sliced baby radish.
Moroccan Fish Tikka: The tandoor grilled fish is served with smoked bell pepper, along with the dips of Harissa, Aioli (mayonnaise seasoned with garlic) and Apple mint yogurt. Highly recommended.
Lebanese Chicken Kebabs: Freshly minced chicken kebabs are little on a spicy side served with Harissa and Aioli dip, it’s appetizing and luscious.
Smoked Cream Cheese Prawns: Cream cheese and cashew nut marinated prawns are topped with mint and served with tomato chili jam and Apple mint yogurt emulsion dips.
Truffle Scented Dark Chocolate Caramelized Cauliflower Veloute: It’s rich, creamy, with a hint of truffle, served with home-made thyme cookie, very different and flavorsome, try for sure.
In mains we tried: Bangers and Mash: The softest Bangers (Sausages) I ever had, it was indeed very fresh, something that they made in-house to retain the softness of the chicken sausages, served with caramelized onion gravy, topped with buttery mash and then the bangers. Highly recommended.
Gastro Pub Shepherd’s Pie: Vegetables along with slow braised Lamb forms the base which is topped with buttery mash, on the sides you have a salad and artisan bread.
The dish that leaves the maximum mark is always the dessert, here we had Mascarpone and Raspberry Sorbet: Mascarpone (Italian cream cheese) in Raspberry Sorbet, served with lemon grass, crisp basil, beet orange, lemon curd, and Lavender pearls and tuile.
