Magical Dining Experience A La Arabian Nights At Opa Bar & Cafe, The Peninsula Grand Hotel, Mumbai
Already had a wonderful time at Peninsula restaurant at The Peninsula Grand Hotel in company of loved ones last month, so getting a chance to visit Opa Bar & Cafe for a review session with foodie friends was like a dream come true. The ambiance is amazing and crowd is classy. Colorful, vibrant and reminiscent of Arabian Nights in every way, this is one spacious place to chill out with friends and forget all stress of the day. Service is leisurely and prices are on higher side. Nothing matters when food and coffee here is excellent.
Yes, even though it is a bar and has superb drinks (I recommend Long Island Tea), coffee is unbelievably good. Ferrero Shake is also a must-have. Among food starters, Mushrooms on Toast, Bruschetta, Cottage Cheese Aglio Olio, Brie Fritters are very good. Mushrooms are creamy, Bruschetta is crispy refreshing, Cottage Cheese melt in mouth and Fritters so cheesy! In main course, Pasta in Pink Sauce was my favorite, not too heavy and full of flavors. Ratatouille with Cottage Cheese just what the doctor orders to drive the blues away, a dish nobody can stop eating, full of veggies and softest Paneer steak at the bottom! For desserts, go simply for Chocolate Fudge Cake with Ice cream. There are dishes for calorie conscious as well as hardcore foodies here so take your pick as you wish.
It is the ambiance here that made the photographer in me dance, so go ahead, indulge in some magical shots, do let me know if you like them too and read a more detailed review at A Beautiful Life Blog. Absolutely recommended!
