50 Shades of Blue...

Review: Dome, Intercontinental

The Dome at Intercontinental easily has the most enviable view in Mumbai. And the monsoon sky just adds to its serenity. Plush white sofas, a musician playing some soulful tunes on his flute and the sound of the waves, my idea of heaven!

I begin with a Watermelon Mojito – chunks of watermelon getting stuck in my straw not a very pretty sight, not a very great drink either!

Watermelon Mojito
The Popiah Rolls – spring rolls filled with asparagus, water chestnuts and cream cheese served with this hearty dip. Yum!

I order for the next drink option, the Chamomile Martini – This has to be THE BEST DRINK I have ever tasted. Beautiful, light and fragrant. Combined with the view? What can I say my idea of heaven...
The Shrimp Tempura
The Shrimp Tempura – crunchy battered prawns. Tasted good but were too soaked in oil

Bamboo Squid Twists

The Bamboo Squid Twists – you know when squid is overdone, it just gets too chewy

Sliced Tenderloin Teriyaki 

The Sliced Tenderloin Teriyaki – thin shavings of beef rolled around peppers topped with that delicate Japanese sauce, sesame seeds and spring onions. Divine! My most recommended after the martini.

The Three Ways Potato Platter – potato patties & wedges lacked flavor and zing

Vietnamese Basa

The Vietnamese Basa – Beautiful succulent fish chunks flavoured with lemongrass

Chicken Sate

Chicken Sate – The usual

Flamed Grilled Shishito Peppers

Flamed Grilled Shishito Peppers – Hot peppers with molten cheese in the middle. Very Yummy

Corn on Cob – you rather not spend 700/- on this

Vegetarian Sushi

Vegetarian Sushi – Not so great, the rice and vegetables didn’t quite come together
The Chamomile Martini & Beef Teriyaki - A Must Have

On an average one starter & one drink would cost around Rs 1500 plus taxes at Dome
