Jumjoji: A Classy Parsi Affair!
What Makes It Awesome?
Jumjoji has been on my list for a long time. Now, not only am I happy to check that off my list but have formed a lasting good memory of my experience here. The place is beautiful, classy and quiet. It is an ideal place to visit for a calm lunch or dinner with family and enjoy their tasty food with the soothing tunes from their in-house pianist. I started my lunch with Jumjoji's Patrani Macchi. It is steamed fish marinated in coriander and coconut chutney and wrapped in banana leaf. This was cooked just perfectly. The fish cut like butter, and the coriander and coconut marinade tasted amazing. Surely a must-try dish here. For my mains, I went with another Parsi classic, Mutton Berry Pulao. I was most excited for this one, and am glad that it didn't let me down. The berries added that refreshing touch of sweetness and tanginess to the savoury mutton pulao. The meat was tender and easy to chew, and the rice was cooked amazingly. The dish had a beautifully sweet and spicy aroma to it, which lingered on for a while. The highly recommended dish at Jumjoji. I had Virgin Cinderella Sangria to wash down these dishes with. The presentation of the simple non-alcoholic sangria was elevated by the addition of the glitter. It tasted really good too. For desserts, I loved their Gulab Jamun with rabri. It is a classic combination, but the taste of the rabri blew my mind. Overall, Jumjoji has been a fascinating experience. The quiet ambience, the chandeliers, the piano and the good food will all my etched in my memory for a long while.
