Bombay on the Menu

Indigo, Mumbai’s 14th Anniversary Menu

On the twenty-sixth of April Indigo celebrated its 14th anniversary. To mark the anniversary Indigo offered a special menu for lunch and dinner on the 26th and 27th: the same menu that it launched with in 1999 and at exactly the same prices as they were in 1999.

Our three-course dinner for three came to just Rs 2020. (See menu below)

Lobster Bisque with Crispy Okra.

Lobster Bisque with Crispy Okra.

Velvety smooth and rich, the bisque was absolutely delightful. The juliennes of crispy okra added a salty and bitter contrast.

Prawn "Raviolo" in a White Wine Nage. Roasted Pumpkin, Peas and Roasted Tomato Pesto. Smelled so lovely, tasted ok.

Ratatouille and Olive Risotto with Parmesan and Basil Oil

Perfection. The olive risotto combined beautifully with a very sophisticated ratatouille. Every spoonful was enveloped with a gentle whiff of basil. Distinct, yet discreet .

Seared Filet Mignon Grilled and Roasted Vegetables, Mustard Mash Potatoes and Port Demi-Glace

Mixed feelings about this one. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked medium-rare, but the meat was a bit chewy; the mashed potatoes and the roasted head of garlic was fabulous.

Black Pepper Crusted Tuna Caponata, White Beans and Warm Coriander Red Wine Vinaigrette

Black Pepper Crusted Tuna, Caponata, White Beans and Warm Coriander Red Wine Vinaigrette

Beautifully cooked tuna that was moist and flavourful right to the core, paired perfectly with lightly sauced beans,  caponata and a complex, syrupy, thickly flavoured red wine vinaigrette

Braised, Stuffed Leg of Lamb Root Vegetables, Persian Rice and Prune Chutney

Quite lovely, but a tad too sweet. The lamb was exquisitely cooked.

The desserts were quite disappointing, with the exception of the coffee sauce served with the Hazelnut Meringue

Warm Tarte Tatin, Vanilla Ice-Cream, Oven-Dried Apples
