Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa joins Bollywood as it launches the most awaited sequel, Once Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara, with a special five-course menu that will be served in Sultanah restaurant until 15 September 2013.
The film is partly shot at the resort and shows prominent areas such as Al Husn Courtyard, Al Bandar lobby and Shahrazad restaurant. Al Husn hotel was home to the lead actors and actresses during the filming in the hotel and in Muscat.
To celebrate the release of the film, the resort’s culinary team has put together a special degustation menu. This Indian-fusion menu is a welcome innovation for guests who crave for spices and the distinct taste of Southwest cuisine.
Guests are invited to dine like a Bollywood star and savour the five-course set menu that includes Tandoori Prawns with Mint and Yogurt Sauce, Tomato Shorba with Sautéed Squid, Tava Hammour with tangy Vegetables and Coconut Sauce, Indian-spiced rubbed Lamb Loin with Potato Bharta and Cashew Nut Sauce wrapped with Kesar Pista Kulfi and Mixed Berry Coulis.
“This menu is specially made for Indian food lovers who are enthusiastic about Indian cuisine and yearn for distinct dishes. The starter, second and third courses are served in elegant portions that are not filling but rich in spices and taste. Having three small portions will allow the guest to indulge in a perfectly spiced lamb loin and end the stimulating meal with Kesar Pista Kulfi. Sultanah restaurant has always served French cuisine and continental food. This menu will be a welcome innovation to our guests who would surely enjoy the diverse taste of Indian cuisine,” said Marc Cibrowius, the executive chef at Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Sultanate of Oman.
