UMAME

Business Traveler (USA) - - LIFESTYLES -

In­dian chefs have flirted with fla­vors of the Ori­ent for decades and Far­rokh Kham­bata brought his own take on pan-Asian in Umame. Lo­cated in a his­toric Art Deco build­ing over­look­ing the Oval Maidan, its set­ting is con­ducive to leisurely meals. Fork your way through Ja­panese, Can­tonese, Viet­namese and Sin­ga­porean spe­cial­i­ties, with starters in­clud­ing crispy siu mai dumplings, bel­ly­ful with wa­ter chest­nuts and corn curd, and fla­vor­ful tem­pura of lob­ster with red miso. Fol­low with the khao suey (Burmese noo­dle soup) and Viet­namese bass wrapped in a ba­nana leaf and driz­zled with Ba­li­nese spices – a feast ap­peal­ing to the fifth taste, umami.
