Authentic Indian Cooking – AT MUMBAI CITY INDIAN

Last summer another Indian restaurant opened its doors in Nueva Andalucía. With five Indian restaurants (at the last count) already established within a two-kilometre radius, it was going to be quite an undertaking to impress the curry aficionados of Nueva Andalucía – who have quite a choice already – but it seems that they have managed to do so quite effortlessly, scoring five out of five on Tripadvisor. We visited the newcomer on the block to find out more…

Mumbai City Indian is situated at the top of Calle Los Jazmines near the post office in La Campana – an up and-coming area with popular new bars and restaurants drawing locals of all ages and nationalities. The owner of Mumbai City, a young and upbeat fellow, greets us at the door with a beaming smile and shows us to our seats. The restaurant has a large outside terrace and inside it is spacious, with heating and air-conditioning, and seating for around 50 people with a bar for those who choose to take a drink while waiting for their takeaway.

We asked what specialities he could recommend and he immediately suggested their chicken hariyali – a dish we had never heard of but turned out to be chicken simmered in green herbs, fresh curry leaves, ground spices, mint and coriander. He also recommended the lamb lababdar with fresh mint and spices, and lamb chops marinated in spices and tandoori-grilled. For those on plant diets, there is a wide range of vegetable dishes as well as delicious berry blends, fruit smoothies and vegetable juices. We observed that there were a number of dishes on the menu that we had not come across before, which sets this restaurant aside from many of the other Indian establishments in the area.

The owner was also very proud to inform us that their northern Indian chef cooks everything from scratch and
it is done authentically – they even have a clay oven to offer the bona fide earthy taste of Indian cuisine. Mumbai City is open every day for lunch and dinner (closed for lunch only on Tuesdays) and at lunchtimes they offer a great value “menu del día” (lunch menu) for €12.50 which includes three courses and a drink. On special nights they provide some entertainment, with a Bollywood dancer adding to the authentic Indian experience. You can find out more about those nights on their Facebook page.
