Wine And Fine Dining At The Same Place
What Makes It Awesome?
Wine villa, Mumbai's first wine on tap restaurant offering varied flavours of wine originating from different cities & countries of the world. The moment you enter this place, on the left side of the entrance you would notice an automated wine machine (ATM types). A card is provided to the customer who can use it in the machine and can choose the flavour of wine he/she would like to try followed by the quantity i.e 15 ml, 75ml (half glass) or 150ml. The pricing part is also mentioned for different wine therein and one chooses the wine convenient as per their budget. Coming to the decor and arrangement, we visited it before Christmas and we found a beautiful Christmas tree near the entrance. The bar area is properly tucked on one corner with a triangle shaped space occupied by the restaurant. There are varied choices amongst seating type depending on the number of people visiting in a group. You could get a view of Juhu beach from there through the window panes. Primarily this place serves European, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. Cottage cheese wich:- Cottage cheese seared and marinated in mint chutney and beet glaze and served with a squish touch of green chutney. The portion size is quite good and the presentation is on par with a fine dine restaurant. Recommended Mushrooms:- The name is quite misleading considering how good the dish was. Mushrooms are pure, though the latter is used mostly in reference to velvety chocolate sauce, was served along with savoury chips (which had attracted very less oil) and the puree was truffle scented. The presentation was top class. Recommended Spice curried taro leaves:- Taro leaves is nothing but arbi ke patte. So this is the 2nd time in a week that I have got the opportunity to try something related to arbi and this one didn't disappoint either. Georgian Khachapuri:- Khachapuri is a traditional Georgian dish of cheese-filled bread. The bread is leavened and allowed to rise and is shaped in various ways, usually with cheese in the middle and a crust which is ripped off and used to dip in the cheese. The filling contains cheese (fresh or aged, most commonly sulguni ), eggs and other ingredients. It is Georgia's national dish. This was a vegetarian version of it with no eggs and mozzarella + feta combined with an overdose of both. A decent dish but more on the bland side. 3g mocktail:- One from the classic mocktail preparation thought it was a bit sub-par when it comes to preparation. Grape and ginger were quite lightly flavoured and one could only feel the essence of spice mix and guava. A few cubes of ice could be reduced to get a better and concentrated flavour. Exotic veg Pappas curry:- One from the state of Kerala and the cuisine to which I could quite relate. The barley rice was cooked to perfection and coconut based curry was just amazing. The curry was given a bit of flavour to match the palate of local customers and it was made with perfection. Recommended Vanilla bean pannacotta:- This is at the pinnacle of presenting an eggless preparation with such finesse and for the taste to match the presentation level is what one would expect from only a fine dine restaurant. This is a must-have dessert. Recommended
