This was a fun dinner. At the restaurant that replaced a Parsi-focused, vegetarian options lacking, Paowalla (guy who has bread), The Bombay Bread Bar is a refreshing twist on urban and contemporary Indian food. Definitely a revisit / must-go restaurant near SoHo’s famous shopping area.
1. Bombay Bhelpuri: Puffed rice, green mango, peanuts, tamarind
Topped with sev, this was a good start!
2. Saag Paneer Pizza: Spinach-mustard greens, goat cheese, corn roti
This was the restaurant’s spin on the north Indian delicacy of sarson (mustard) da saag (spinach blend) and makki (corn) di roti 9bread). It was amazing. And I don’t like sarson da saag, nor do I like makki di roti.
This was interesting. The daal lacked some flavor for me and burrata didn’t do much. I’ll probably still order it again
In addition to this, we ordered quite a few of their breads:
4. Bread assortments:
- Laccha Parantha (must order)
- Rosemary Naan (meh)
- Garlic Naan (eh)
It’s ironic that the breads at the bread bar were a bit underwhelming.
5. Paneer & Cauliflower Makhni (Fenugreek-tomato curry): This was delicious, although, the cauliflower could be subbed for something or just give us more paneer. “Replace some of my paneer with something else,” said no one ever.
6. Chocolate, Vanilla & Mango Kulfi:
Definitely better than Junoon’s skimpy tiny serves. Also, delicious!
