While I loved my brief stay at the Ibis hotel near Mumbair airport, I cherished my culinary experiences at their in house restaurant Spice it. I was flabbergasted by their expensive buffet setup – you name the dish or the item and they make it. Here are a few of them:
Omelette : Saltless. But as the chef told me that their majority clientele are Asians and they prefer their omelettes sans salt. So overall a good one.
Sweet corn and peas: The sweet corn kernels and the pea grains boiled well and served to you – an absolute healthy side to your usual breakfast.
Chicken sausage: Where to start? Chewy exterior, juicy interior and slightly peppery – I devoured tons of these.
Pork Sausage: The adjectives “chewy” and “juicy” will pre repeated here though they were slightly chewier than the chicken ones – the way they should be.
Potato wedges: These are there to satisfy your carbohydrate needs – crusty skin with soft inside and laden with red chillies.
Masala Anda: A Marathi one I shall say. Boiled eggs lathered in a rich spice mixture which is hot as well.
Marathi thali: I do not remember the names of the individual items but the dessert in the form of “lauki ki kheer” (bottlegourd pudding) was a novelty. The whole ensemble was fashioned by the Sous Chef Mr. Sunil Satpatte and he specially dished out this thali for me so that I can get some authentic Marathi experience in my food journey. And needless to say, I loved the lavish thali but could not eat all the items due to subsequent travel plans.
