Mumbai Delights, a restaurant serving northern Indian’s vegetarian cuisine, with their specialty being Mumbai's street food open recently at Plaza Mont Kiara. I had the chance to dine there with fellow foodies the other day, and it really gave me a new perception on what Indian dishes have to offer. Check out what we had that day,

The location itself is pretty strategic, in Plaza Mont Kiara. Mumbai Delights is an ideal place for great healthy meals and casual get-togethers with its simple yet cozy and warm dining setting.

|Watermelon Juice to kickstart our meal|
Mumbai Delights has a rather extensive menu, catering for everyone's needs from light dishes, to heavier complete meals. This includes Mumbai’s delight special, sizzlers, Mumbai’s chowpatty, kebabs, bread, naans, all sort of dal and gravy, as well as Chinese and western foods with a twist of Indian flavor prepared skillfully by their Head Chef Abhi.
|Vada Pav - RM5.50|
I was told the Vada Pav is a popular grab & go street food in India. Made from homemade soft unsweetened bread roll (pav), it had a deep fried spicy potato filling with a heavy taste of coriander and green chili. Sprinkled on the top is this rather flavourful chutney powder, which I like as it enhanced the taste of this dish. Served along with tamarind (made with tamarind and jaggery sugarcane) and green (made with coriander, green chili and yogurt) chutney at side, each bite promises you an explosion of taste and textures.
|Bhurji Pav - RM18|
Another new to me dish, the Bhurji Pav is simple yet full of flavour. Pan fried, with grated cottage cheese, green chilies, onion and spices thrown into the mix, it does go well with the accompanying laacha paratha on the side. Savoury, yet spicy enough to tingle your tastebuds.
|Himachali Kumbh - RM18|
Fresh button mushrooms were used in Mumbai Delights' Himachali Kumbh dish. Not your usual button mushrooms, they were stuffed with cottage cheese in tikka style cooked in a hot tandoor oven. Served with malai sauce, it is indeed a tempting dish.
|Thai Curry Dal and Garlic Naan - RM14|
A comfort Indian food with a twist of Thai flavor. Chef Abhi paired these garlic naan, a flat leavened bread of northwest India, with his unique creation of Thai curry dal that has a mixture of greens such as broccoli, red pepper, green pepper, pak choy, carrot, onion and lastly the dal to add in a nice texture of creaminess. Love the garlic naan.
|Parizza Layered Pizza - RM24|
I can't imagine myself ever enjoying a vegetarian pizza, but here at Mumbai Delights they surprised me with the Parizza Layered Pizza which quickly became my favourite for that evening. Different from the normal pizza dough, Chef Abhi uses laacha paratha, layered flat bread that made with whole wheat flour, as the pizza base. To ensure its crispiness, the chef prepared the laacha paratha in tandoor first before placing ingredients like fresh mushroom, capsicum, cottage cheese, cheddar and mozzarella cheese on top, then oven baked it till perfection together with chef’s special BBQ sauce.
|Chili Garlic Sizzler - RM24|
Now this Chili Garlic Sizzler dish this is an acquired taste, at least to me. Fill your palate to the brim with this sizzling dish that served a variety of sumptuous dishes in generous portion. Diners can choose rice, noodle or both mixed as the base, and then it will be topped with wholesome items like corns, carrots, French beans, cherry tomatoes, fries, mixed greens and cottage cheese cutlet with appetizing chili garlic sauce.
|Chocolate Samosa - RM18|
Crispy samosa filled with sweet chocolate brownies, drizzled with really rich warm chocolate sauce, this had to be a first for me. Served with ice cream on the side, this sweet dessert was just too sweet for my liking, but it is indeed a very special and unique end to a good night out with friends. Do drop by Mumbai Delights for some nice authentic Mumbai street food the next time you're at Plaza Mont Kiara.
