Who hasn’t had withdrawal symptoms after Season 4 of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes!? Those London streets, long coats, lightning speed thinking, underground tunnels and of course 221 B Baker Street! Recreating the charm of London and curiosity of the city’s most loved detective, is London Taxi in Kamala Mills, Mumbai.
Circle around Kamala Mills, and you won’t miss the imposing structure called ‘London Taxi’. An avant-garde space, spread across two floors, London Taxi is a sophisticated gastro-pub with a unique menu on offer. Taking us through the choicest of dishes was server Abbey John, who was quick to understand our palate and well-versed with the delicacies of London Taxi. From cocktails, mocktails to vegetarian and meats, we were delighted with the fare is quite understated.
The interesting bit is that the food is a fusion Indian dishes with British ingredients. Cream cheese on tandoori items for example. For starters, literally, the cheese dipped tandoori broccoli and charcoal baos were surprisingly diffrent. Broccoli florets never tasted this good!
The uniquely served Sherlock in the Pickle with a magnifying glass is the perfect ode to the eponymous detective; second to this is the English Breakfast, with a serving of panacota representing a sunny side up egg preparation that is unique to English breakfasts.
So the next time you’re in Lower Parel, hop on to this taxi and begin the beautiful journey for your taste buds.
