We are a gourmand couple who love to discover new places and eat our hearts out. Follow us for a guilt trip along the food road.
There are places in town that doesn’t draw much attention. Places that aren’t very well known to people like us who either stay at the far ends of Mumbai and hardly get the opportunity to venture to this side of the city. But Gurukripa seemed quiet full and with people who looked like they were regulars… Well it is quiet improper to judge a place without experiencing the services. The newly opened roof top section of the Gurukripa hotel also called Oopar is a great place to spend a nice evening with friends for some good food and beverages at great prices.
We started our evening with some Kurkure Mushrooms – A beautiful looking dish. Small tart-let shaped mushrooms scooped out and filled with some great veggies and topped with cheese. These were a great start to our meal. The crust of the mushrooms were very flavorful and had a nice crunch to it. The filling was spicy yet mellow due to the cheese. All together a pleasant start to the evening.
Paneer Hilltop – No vegetarian meal starts or ends without a Paneer and hence came the Paneer Hilltop. Large chunks of Paneer marinated in green marinade and chargrilled to perfection. The smoked paneer along with the green coriander chutney was a great accompaniment to the chilled house special mocktails. So far so good.
Next up was the Kung Pao Potatoes. Strips of potatoes aka French fries tossed in Chinese sauces. Was more like dry French fries in Manchurian sauce. Not bad but not the best starters. Could have opted for something better though.
Paneer Tikka Masala with butter roti comprised the mains. Big chunks of Paneer, capsicum and onions simmered in a spicy and typical Indian gravy of onion and tomatoes. A tad bit oily and rich but that’s what Punjabi food is all about.
Our meal almost came to an end and we were ready to wind off the evening with some desserts. But then arrived the Gadbad. Yes a mix of 3 ice creams topped with sauces, fruits and nuts. A total Gadbad or chaos of flavours. But if you love your ice cream you will definitely love it any way it is served.
A tad bit slow with the service part but the music, ambiance and being a roof top restaurant you can actually end up star gazing till your food arrives.
