Sunday Brunch At The Ambassador Mumbai
What Makes It Awesome?
Ambassador - 1939 and still going strong. Guess their first Establishment was in Bombay. This place has its own history which one can see from its interiors with antiques/collectibles and much more. After a long time had a chance to Visit FLAVORS CAFE for a Sunday Brunch. All I can say, Nostalgic. Back memory lane. Let's not get into the price (999+) it's just VFM. In short, this place and its food have its charm. Be it Russian Salad or the lovely Koftas with red gravy. Let's start with what I had today, I may have skipped some dishes but tried a spoon of most of them. Known for Ambassador is known for its Russian Salad and my I bet it was just perfect. (Also known as Olivier salad) a traditional salad made out of diced boiled potatoes/carrots/green peas mayonnaise. Loved the texture and taste. Khimchi Salad was different. Gives you that tangy spicy hit (Korean touch) Skipped the Garden Green/Vegetable Grilled/Pesto Pasta (looked good /Carrot and raisin. Jumped to make my own salad. Fresh Assorted lettuce with lemon dressing and cocktail dressing. Continental - loved the texture of Honey Chilli chicken salad. Again on the spicy tangy side. Something different. Same goes with Schwan fish salad. Skipped the soups but concentrated on some breadsticks and homemade rolls with butter. Chaat counter was a surprise - Sev Puri and Dahi Papdi Chaat. Both looked the same but the taste was different. Sev Puri a 100% Bombay dish - correct balance of mashed potato topped with sev/onions/Dal/tamarind/green chutney. Dahi Chaat was lovely as well. Aloo Roll - a Conti starter was (goes well with mint chutney) so was the Tikki. Do order if it's on the menu. STAR dish of the day was CHICKEN TIKKA - wow. Soft melt in the mouth. Marination perfect, lovely texture. One of the best I have had. Being Sunday the Buffet is part of the brunch - Chef sent us some Masala dosa and Onion Uttapam with Sambhar and 2 types of chutney. Though a tad sweet liked it. Pancakes are heaven - simple yet classy. Made to perfection. A bit of sugar and maple you are in for a treat. Mains - Just one spoon of Puneri Aloo (home style) Vegetable Kofta in Red gravy (takes you memory lane) rich at the same time perfectly balanced. Must ask for this. Pasta Pomodoro (Conti) done well with red gravy. Herbs and flavours. Vegetable Princess came in a creamy gravy with exotic vegetables. Dal Makhani went well with steam rice and Vegetable Biryani went well with Mixed Raita. Breads served piping hot. Missed out on Meen Moilee but liked the Roast Chicken with fine herbs sauce (this is ambassador) Keeping it simple yet classy. Did not try the Chicken Multani Shorba (next time) Desserts - Til ke ladoo (wow) winter time. Madewell. Not too sweet. Carrot Kheer was good. Caramel Custard with kiwi fruit - loved the combination. Skipped the Chocolate cake/ pastry and mouse. Ended my lunch with a lovely espresso. This place has a lot of potential. Loved it. Prices 999 (food and unlimited Mocktail) 1300+ with beer 1799+ unlimited IMFL. Go for it. Till we meet again cheers.
