Last week I had an opportunity to have an exclusive preview lunch at Ithaka Mumbai. I have to admit, I went in with a bit of doubt. My thought: Veg Lebanese doesn’t have many options. Maybe they’ll have a few fancy hummus options.
I was wrong. Very wrong.
You have to eat here to believe me.
From the first mushroom cappuccino that was served to the last dessert- chocolate caramel dessert, my taste buds were mesmerized. Every bite was savoured.
I was pleasantly surprised at how wrong my notions were. Being a meat lover, I shamelessly confess that I would go to this veg Lebanese restaurant any day. Below are my explicit reasons:
- Innovatively prepared dishes
- Well presented dishes
- Their Mushroom Cappuccino is the BEST I’ve ever had
- Closer to office. Opposite to Phoenix Mills. This means, I can go there any time from Monday-Friday!
- Their desserts. Though they are not all Lebanese but delectable indeed.
Ithaka opens doors on the 17th of February 2015. So if work/live in or around Lower Parel, do give this place a try. A meal for two would cost you approx 1500 INR.
Enjoy the pictures! 🙂
