Culture gully brings alive the essence of India, its vastness, diversity, richness and most importantly food . You are transported into a magnificent world the moment you step inside those ornate gates . Under the blue sky (at all times) different kiosks depicting various states vie for attention. A new addition to this bustling street is the sandwich bar and this is what merited a visit.
Unlike other places with live kitchens, the sandwich bar offers a beautiful sitting area all done in jade green. Stuffing is what matters immensely in a sandwich and lends character to the otherwise bland bread, it also has to be moist and not soggy. First one to be tried on the menu was the Mushroom Cheese came with a spicy side of harissa sauce that complements the earthiness of mushroom. Lending some Indian flavor to the firang staple was the Paneer Bhurji sandwich served with a side of garlic yoghurt that balances the masaledaar bhurji.
Mumbai sandwich sadly did not live up to my expectation , I prefer my potatoes sliced and devoid of any seasoning, but here’s its filled with a spicy potato mash alongwith some vegetables. It’s counterpart is the spicy potato sandwich which worked better for me and this comes with a side of pickled vegetables that gave the right bite and also a bit of tang. Mumbaiyya Pav is stuffed with Paneer Tikkas to make a great snack and this comes with hand blended hummus which is pulverized with a pestle in a mortar the old school way and it definitely can’t get any better than this !
Where- Sandwich Bar, Culture Gully, Kingdom of Dreams.
