Fine Dining: Asia on a Platter at Umame in Mumbai
Set off on a journey of Pan-Asian flavours with impressive presentation at Umame in Mumbai.
Umame is a loanword from Japanese which means pleasant savory taste, as ‘umai’ is delicious and ‘mi’ translates into ‘taste’. Much like its name, Umame, the fine dining restaurant in Mumbai, brings to you some of the finest and never seen before Pan-Asian delights. The décor at Umame beautifully compliments the subtle flavours of the food and also houses a lovely al-fresco area from where you can enjoy the city view.
The delicious fare served at Umame is a labour of love from Farrokh Khambata; one of the city’s most successful restaurateurs. While the dimsums are soft, succulent and cooked to perfection, the sushi and sashimi are prepared from fresh ingredients and keep up the authenticity of taste. Making the experience all the more interesting is Umame’s version of sushi such as the Tiger Rolls- Creamy Spicy Shrimp with Nori- Seaweed and Takuan-Pickled Daikon – both a must-try.
Whether it is the Balinese minced lamb on sugarcane skewers with sweet chilli dipping sauce, the Steamed Grouper Filets with Raw Mango and Young Ginger, or the Eight Treasure Vegetables in Fermented Black Beans and Chili Oil, you can’t help but notice how each dish stands out for its taste, textures and especially the unique presentation.
These gourmand creations are further augmented by a comprehensive wine list, delectable cocktails and a well-stocked bar. Before you call it a wrap, make some room for the extraordinary desserts. ‘My Sweetest Mistake’ is a rich chocolate mousse with a topping of berries served with hot chocolate sauce – is a ‘mistake’ you must commit. The Pecan Crème Brule with Mandarin Orange foam is a sensory delight, with each bite giving you burst of flavours.
