Indo-chic interiors at Bombay Borough

Located amongst the array of dining concepts in Dubai’s fast-paced DIFC, Bombay Borough opened its doors to the public on this month. A multi-layered space spread over two floors, guests are engulfed in an embracing Indo-chic ambience, aspired from a fusion of the modern French and British-era old bungalows of India, which infuses the western elements with the indo-culture ones, in an uber-cool space where people can gather over conversation-worthy food.

The botanical-inspired Bar 

From scrumptious smalls such as Chilli Cheese Kulchas; an elevated bite to sample Bombay’s chili cheese toast, Banana Leaf Wrapped Sea Bass; tangy, spicy and everything you would hope for in every bite of the dish, Aam Papad Paneer; succulent pieces of paneer prepared to tantalize your taste buds and many more, these ingredient-focused sharing plates and grills make for great conversation fillers, allowing guests to hone their appetites before the meal unravels.

The large plates that follow are sure to leave even the heartiest of appetites satisfied. Mario's Mango Prawns & Coconut Rice – a goan induced preparation of prawns paired with silky coconut flavoured rice enclosed in a banana leaf wrapping, Bombay Dabba Gosht- a warming lamb dish made from an amalgamation of yoghurt, fried onions and baked ‘bohri’ style cooking served with crisp chur chur paratha and Chatka Chhole Kulchey- an authentic Punjabi inspired dish of chickpeas cooked in a secret ‘chhole masala’ and served with tandoori aloo kulcha, are some of the signature mains highly recommended to indulge in.

The desserts are prepared solely to imprint a surprising yet sweet element on the palette, with their highlights dishes Ras-e-Aam – a Bengali inspired delicacy of ‘rasagolla’ nestled on subtle sweet ‘rabri’ and topped with ‘aamras’ and Flourless Dark Chocolate Bar with jaggery and peanut crumble , being well-endowed to leave you wanting more.


Overall, Bombay Borough has succeeded in embodying the concept of new India – a contemporary haven that welcomes all, with a philosophy centred on the belief that good food is all the sweeter when shared with good company.
