Lon­don Taxi

India Today - - COVER STORY -

With Ami Shroff, In­dia’s first fe­male flair bar­tender at the helm of the bar, the new­est gas­tro-pub in town is sure to serve some of the best cock­tails you can get—spir­its in­fused with nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents, in-house made shrubs, tonic wa­ter and no ar­ti­fi­cial flavours or sugar. The in­te­rior decor is in­spired by Lon­don's pub­lic trans­port sys­tem, with pipes run­ning along the ceil­ing that are rem­i­nis­cent of the tube network, red chairs dot­ting the space and the foot­prints of the city’s pop­u­lar at­trac­tions.

In the Mixer The drinks have been cu­rated with a Bri­tish touch. While the sig­na­ture Sher­lock in a Pickle is a savoury cock­tail in­spired by Sher­lock Holmes’ favourite in­gre­di­ents, The English Break­fast is a cock­tail served with an egg sunny side up.

Chef ’s Coat Chef Na­graj Bhat brings his years of ex­pe­ri­ence in kitchens in Lon­don with dishes such as Truf­fle scented dark choco­late caramelise­d cau­li­flower soup, Char­coal bao, Tamarind wasabi glazed chicken wings, Beer bat­tered flat-breads, Bangers and mash and Ra­men.

USP The dé­cor, food and Bri­tain-in­spired cock­tails Price Rs 2,500 for two At Ka­mala Mills, Lower Parel
