Thursday evening, I was invited for a food tasting at ‘Asha’s, a fine dining restaurant in Wafi mall near Dubai Healthcare city. The evening turned out to be an elegant affair right from the start. I and my wife arrived hand in hand with very high expectations as both of us are big fans of the legendary Bollywood singer Asha Bhosle. The decor of the restaurant is very elegant and the ambience is magical. The dimly lit restaurant transports you to to the magical world of celluloid. Ashaji’s melodious voice fills up the room with golden hits playing one after the other. You can only wish that time stood still and this experience continues longer. Our host for the evening the restaurant manager and the very charming corporate chef Mr Bobby greeted us warmly and we were escorted to a table reserved for us. The evening started with crispy papads and sweet pickles presented on a platter along with tall glasses of chilled draft beer to kick start the evening.
The starters arrived in no time, Chicken momos, Paneer momos and prawn momos made their way to the table. The Prawn momos were my favourite, while my wife enjoyed the Chicken momos.
Next, came the main course, Peas pulao, Prawns masala and Chicken Masala and rumali rotis. The pulao was light and well cooked, The Prawns were spicy but tasty at the same time. The chicken had a strong clove flavour which was delicious and the pieces of chicken were tender and succulent.
Finally, the delicious desserts arrived as the bonus on top of this awesome experience.
