On the occasion of Navroz, Gymkhana 91 decided to cumulate a special Parsi menu to take your taste buds on a joyride. If you haven’t had a taste of Parsi cuisine as yet, you’re missing out on a lot.
Gymkhana 91 is located very close to Palladium, Lower Parel. The theme of the restaurant is based on the Gymkhanas of Mumbai.
It serves a variety of cuisines like Asian, European and Indian. The staff is polite as well and helpful. This place is super spacious and hence a perfect place for a Sunday brunch with your friends and family.
Salli par Tomato: A very famous Parsi dish, full of masalas and flavours. Gymkhana 91 did justice to the dish, the tomato purée and the crisp of the salli balanced each other out perfectly.
Boneless Chicken Farcha: pieces of marinated chicken fried and served with a combination of wasabi and mayo. The chicken was hot and crisp. The outer coating was flaky and the inner was juicy. It was served with a side of chopped potatoes and pineapples marinated in the combination of sauces.
Homemade Yogurt Mangola: we all remember our childhood favourite Mango drink. Gymkhana 91 has blended it with yogurt to give us a slightly tangy yet delicious taste of Mangola. The combo is thick and definitely nostalgic .
Masala Iced Tea: a blend of iced tea with their homemade Parsi style masala and cranberry juice is refreshing in its own way. The salty masala and sweet cranberry juice elevate the taste of the ice tea.
Lagan nu Custard: a special Parsi delicacy served at weddings is very similar to a caramel custard. It’s the kind of sweet dish you do not want to miss out on.
Apart from the Parsi menu we tried-
Black Button Dimsums: The outer coating was sticky and overall they tasted good. However, we think that the mushrooms could be a little more flavourful. The taste was elevated by combining it with their schezwan sauce that they serve along with a couple other sauces to pair with the dish
Classic Blueberry Smoothie: Not only did this drink look gorgeous it also tasted delicious. It was as if we were sipping on some fresh blueberry cheesecake in a glass.
Salted Caramel Banana Cake: this is one of the dishes you cannot skip. The crunchy base, the creamy cheesecake, the layered slices of banana and the drizzle of salted caramel it’s the dessert that left us absolutely delighted.
Overall we had an amazing experience at Gymkhana 91. The quality of food completely justifies the price.
