Pav Bhaji fondue, Mango on the rocks, Paan Mousse & more | Gastronomical vegetarian feast @SpiceKlub, Mankhool

SpiceKlub has recently gained a lot of popularity for the gastronomical feast they offer mostly so because their entire menu is purely vegetarian! Yes, you heard that right. The team behind the restaurant has worked on creating a specially curated menu that features a unique mix of dishes from across India delivered to you right here in Dubai, with the added twist using the latest food trend of gastronomy. So think traditional Indian flavours placed before you with a little mix of liquid nitrogen, gels, spherification, foams and what not!

The massive colourful wall is probably the most iconic part of the restaurant with Indian motifs represented in vibrant coloured hues. Apart from that the restaurant is filled with little nuances that keep the eyes moving from one point of interest to another. Be it the lights hung on wooden wheels on the ceiling, dangling scattered kites or mix of kitsch printed cushions.

Get Set Gobble

Be it their signature Coconut water with assorted caviar or Mango on the rocks, we were handed a spoon and for the first time in my dining experience I had the pleasure of being asked to eat my drinks rather than sipping on them. Little spheres of rose provide a burst of freshness and sweetness against tender coconut juice garnished with saffron strands. The mango drink is prepared right on the table where the server pours in liquid nitrogen over fresh mango pulp. I have been loving summers mostly because of all the sweet mango concoctions I am getting to enjoy. Their Seasonal Fruit Lassi has fresh fruit flavoured yoghurt transformed into little spheres that burst in your mouth to release apricot, pineapple, blackcurrant or rose flavours along with a rabri foam.

The Dahi ke kebab have a wonderful soft texture and simply melt in your mouth with every bite. The succulent Galouti kebabs are served with mint chutney and onion. The Shermal roti base they are presented on gives it the added crispy texture. You can enjoy their appetizers with a series of Jain (no onion, garlic) and non Jain dips such as garlic yoghurt, aam ki lungi, black olive dip and more.

The Papdi chaat is a tangy treat created with yoghurt spherics and coriander foam. One bite in and we guarantee you will not stop till the entire plate has been cleaned off 😀 Probably their most signature dish on the menu is the Pav bhaji fondue that has garnered the great fame and is rightly deserved. Their unique twist on this classic street food dish promises to gives you all the flavour packaged in an attractive manner. The traditional flavours are enhanced in the mousse like texture of their spiced potato bhaji meant to be eaten by dipping little bits of bread into it. The dish gets full marks for taste, flavour and presentation! Definitely one that would keep you coming back to the restaurant.

My favourite main course dish was this gorgeously flavoured Paneer tikka masala with marinated pieces of cottage cheese cooked in a tandoor and served on a bed of spicy tomato gravy. Accompanied by their Chilli cheese garlic butter naan and Sun dried potato & black olive naan, I went back for several repeats. A bowlful of their delicious Dal Makhani certainly added joy to an already exciting meal. We also ordered a portion of their  Fried onion, corn & peas rice that was tossed with these colourful veggies.

Flower pot is definitely one dessert for all the chocolate lovers. A small pot made with Belgian chocolate is served with chocolate spoons on a bed of pistachio and chocolate crumble. Slicing the pot through the centre reveals ras malai with saffron mousse. Their Rasgulla cheesecake makes east meets west with this preparation of soft cheesecake filled with colourful mini rasgullas covered with flaked almonds and served on a bed of pistachio & chocolate crumble. The Paan mousse came recommend by the server who presented the mousse piped onto rose petals and went on to pour a jar full of liquid nitrogen over the dish. What a sight that was! You really have to control yourself from instantly grabbing them to take a bite. Though desserts were certainly a lot of fun but didn’t really create an impression in terms of flavour as did the rest of the meal.

Certainly one place worth going back to for an enjoyable meal for vegetarians and non vegetarians alike.
