Unwraping Christmas feasts in Mumbai

Christmas menu at JW Marriott Juhu

It’s Christmas time. Will it be mistletoe, wine and the same meal you have every year? Before you drive home for Christmas try one of my favourite restaurants for their special Christmas spread.

Gaylord, Churchgate, Mumbai
This year, Gaylord’s Christmas menu holds the irresistible beer batter prawns. Perfectly fried to a golden yellow, the crispy casing holds the freshest jumbo prawns alongside buttered peas and carrots. Other dishes on the menu include Chicken Marina, Baked Aubergines, Dum Gosht Biryani, Shakarkandi Kebab, etc. I absolutely loved the Makhmali Kumbh (tandoori mushrooms stuffed with goat cheese). My favourite experience here is to enjoy a sizzler in the alfresco area. Not only does the theatre of it turn heads and stop conversation, but it’s an immediate winter warmer like no other type of dish.
