With numerous culinary styles making their way to Mumbai, our taste buds are being exposed to myriad ingredients, flavors and textures from across the globe. Countries Connection is one such great find in the bustling locality of Infiniti Mall, Andheri West that is churning out multi-cuisine delicacies to delight our palate.
Since the owners are five chefs who have partnered to create this eatery, the emphasis is clearly on delivering scrumptious food offerings through their expertise. The ambience has been kept colorful and simple and has a spaced out seating arrangement. The staff was jovial and their recommendations from the menu were apt.
I have a penchant for Lebanese gastronomy and leave no occasion to pamper my taste buds to its simple yet rich preparations. The striking feature of this culinary style is the prominence it places on use of fresh produce and its cooking techniques that let the produce hero the dish.
So, on the bygone weekend my friends and I decided to indulge in the cuisine of Mabruk at Hotel Sahara Star, Mumbai that specializes in Lebanese food. The restaurant setting feels like an excerpt from the Arabian Knights tale. The restaurant recreates the feel of an oasis with its simulated flora and a contiguous pond. The art on walls and table arrangement comprising of Persian ceramic transfer plates take you back in time to a city in the Middle East. The seating arrangement bears resemblance to the Bedouin style of perching on thick cushions placed just tad above the ground.
