First Look Bombay Street Kitchen Orlando.
You could be forgiven for overlooking the location of Bombay Cafe, as it was tucked away in the corner of a small mall on Doss Avenue, a stone’s throw from South Orange Blossom Trail. Never the less it built up an amazing following of dedicated Indian Street Food lovers serving mostly vegetarian dishes such as Dosas, Chaats, Curries and much more since 2008.
But now and for sure never to be overlooked is the new and improved version of this pioneering Indian Restaurant concept, Bombay Street Kitchen which opens on Monday March 29th in a new location at 6215 South Orange Blossom Trail Orlando just two blocks from the original restaurant.
The design, menu and concept of Bombay Street Kitchen are the brain child of Amit Kumar the force behind Aashirwad on Kirkman and Tamarind in Winter Park, both successful Award-winning Indian restaurants. The spacious restaurant is beautifully decorated with unique art and wood carvings, bright colors and quality finishes. A full bar and theatre style kitchen compliment the design and ample parking is available as is a comfortable patio to the rear of the restaurant.
The new menu builds on the predominately vegetarian options of the original concept with the addition of specialty and authentic non vegetarian Indian Street Food dishes to compliment the experience. But rest assured not only are there plenty of vegetarian options Bombay Street Kitchen also has a separate vegan and allergen menu.
For the uninitiated, Street Foods are ready to eat food and drink items sold in the streets by vendors all across the cities and towns of India.
We have enjoyed great food from Bombay Cafe before and got a sneak peek in advance the opening on Monday March 29th, so were eager to choose from an amazing new menu of street dishes from all around the world.
Masala Papad Bhel, a great start to our meal was this Papad or as some call it a Poppadum, topped with a delicious mixture of onions, tomato and spices. The Papad was perfectly crisp and seriously addictive.
Kurkuray Bhindi Bhel, a beautiful preparation of crispy okra, onions, tomato, fried chickpea noodles, topped with pomegranate seeds.
Tandoori Vegetable Momo, (Main Picture) tender little dumpling parcels perfectly cooked and filled with grilled vegetables. They disappeared fast!
Jackfruit Taco, over the years we have had Jackfruit in many preparations, but felt this Jackfruit combined with marinated paneer, sour cream, avocado and cilantro sauce made for one of the best taco’s we have had for some time.
Adraki Lamb Chops, we are always suckers for Tandoori grilled meats and the intense flavor of these succulent Lamb chops, marinated in sour cream and ginger really hit the spot.
Some of the dishes may be unfamiliar to you, but their very knowledgeable staff are really friendly and happy to suggest dishes and discuss preparations. Not only were we delighted with the quality and presentation of each and every dish, your street food experience will not break the bank as all the menu provides really outstanding value for money.
Setting them apart from other Indian restaurants, Bombay Street Kitchen is proud to work with local farmers, producers and suppliers and have great pride in ensuring that all their food is made from scratch and spices are freshly ground and prepared inhouse, using only natural colors and flavorings in all food preparation, and it shows.
