If you are one of those South Mumbai ladies who lunch , looking for a suitable place,then Pa Pa Ya is just the place for you. Especially if you like Asian. Jiggs Kalra’s restaurant that opened in Palladium Mall in September last year already has a fan following , seeing the number of well heeled ladies who literally filled up the place in minutes of its opening at noon.
Molecular gastronomy and Papaya
I had heard of molecular biology but molecular gastronomy was something new to me. I was surprised when the waiter brought along two ‘amuse bouche’ to titilate and tantalise our palates and imagination with a frothy foam infusion of basil and lemongrass, cleverly hiding a ball of chilled watermelon .”Molecular gastronomy ” explained the waiter who understood my puzzled looks.
By now my interest was totally aroused and I was looking forward to the sushi and dimsums we had ordered
All in all it was a great lunch though we didn’t go beyond the appetisers. The food was tasty , the service polite and the overall ambience pleasant – casual yet chic dining .
Undoubtedly this bouche was totally amused especially on a wet and dreary afternoon.
