Since it was our last dinner together before I leave for Singapore, Chris took me out to Bombay Heritage for some Indian food. It’s tough to find an Indian restaurant that beats Nilgiri, our favourite, but I’d say this one comes really really close.. and if you factor in the price (ie. cheaper), then it’s better 😛
It’s a pretty small restaurant, filled with diners when we entered. The menu was extensive and pretty reasonably priced, with mains $15-20 a pop. We started off with a Mango Lassi which was more yoghurty and less sweet than normal, it was lovely and addictive 😉
Mains was a mixed dish of Seekh Kebab (Tandoor-cooked ground lamb with garlic & pepper), this was delicious! Like Indian sausage, all spicy and full of flavour. There was also Chicken Tikkah and Yoghurt, the chicken was really tender and went well with the chilled mint yoghurt. The star of the dish, however, was the Lamb Cutlets, which Chris and I agreed was the best. It was chunky, insanely tasty, and so tender!
Also had a Goa Fish Curry – lovely chunks of tender white fish in a rich coconut cream curry. It went beautifully with the Naan bread dipped in and sloshed around in the curry. Mmmmmm!! Also had a serving of Lemon Rice with Nuts that was yummy.
Not full yet and totally impressed with the meal, we decided on some Gulab Jamon balls for dessert. I have to say, I’m pretty sure they are my FAVOURITE DESSERT ever. They beat tiramisu, choc cake.. anything! They’re intensely sweet and swimming in rose syrup, giving it a really unusual taste. The balls themselves are so hard to describe to do them justice – they’re creamy on the inside (a bit like cottage cheese) and deep fried on the outside so it’s slightly crisp. The taste is mindblowingly sweet, but with a very faint savoury flavour from the goat’s cheese on the inside. It’s just DIVINE…. I must have more!!
