Bombay Borough brings fresh flavours to Colombo

Rediscover India anew at Sri Lanka’s very first Bombay Borough located at One Galle Face. With dishes from different regions of India to choose from, sample small plates or indulge in large ones from an eclectic selection that marries the familiar with the unexpected and serves up the very best of Indian ingredients to the armchair traveller.

Bombay Borough promises to deliver modern Indian cuisine with the spotlight on unique ingredients, in a menu carefully curated after much travel through India. The restaurant is franchised by Charcoal Concepts of K Hospitality Corp, one of India’s largest hospitality and food service companies.

Brand Director - Bombay Borough of K Hospitality Corp ShikhaNath says, “Bombay Borough focuses on flavours that have never been tried before, twisting old school recipes to suit today’s tastes. We use regionally-sourced ingredients from across India.

From the small plates and grills, the Fiery ​Thecha Prawn made with ​Thecha​- a classic chutney from the households of Mumbai, the ​Naga ​Ghost Pepper Wings, tangy roasted wings dusted with BhootJolokia from Northeast India or the flavourful ​PanchPhoran Chargrilled Prawns are a few favourites that are reinvented while retaining their authentic soul. The large plates that follow will satisfy even the heartiest of appetites- they are also great for sharing. Finding the right pairing enhances each ingredient and elevates the taste of every large plate in the unique menu; highlights include Bombay Lunch Home Veg Curry, Mario’s Mango Prawns and Coconut Rice, Smoked Jodhpur Mutton and the signature Biryanis and Tandoor breads.

An interesting dessert selection means guests can end their meal with something sweet and, in true Bombay Borough style, something surprising. Similarly, the “High Chai” Menu isn’t just a cup of tea at Bombay Borough with the menu offering local Indian street favourites such as BambaiyyaVadaPao,​ Okra Fries, Street Style Scrambled Egg and MaskaPao, ​LalQila Tikka Roll paired with the perfect selection of desi cocktails, ​Pauwacocktails, beers on tap and indigenous Indian teas from across India along with the Bombay signature Masala Chai.

At the bar, old favourites have travelled from across a diverse range of regions and cultures in India to sit comfortably alongside refreshing new brews.

​Kairi Sherbet and Rickshaw Refresher are all about seasonality, taking inspiration from the wide range of ingredients that pop up across India throughout the year. Bombay Borough also introduces its signature PauwaCocktails, 180ml of desi concoctions, served up in ​Pauwa(or quarter bottles) as served in the local Bombay bars. Paired with the right Chakhna-​crunchy, tasty bar snack specials like Janta Bar and Madras Pop​- these will certainly make you crave for more.
