Goa’s loss this month is Mumbai’s gain. And this gain is bountiful. Closed for the season in Goa, your favourite Bomra’s sends love to our city, invited to experience Burmese-inspired cuisine at a two-week long ‘off season’ food promotion!

Chef Bawmra Jap and O Pedro’s Executive Chef Hussain combine their sunshine to bring you the brightest meal you can eat this monsoon. Until Aug 14, stop by to try their new Burmese inspired Goan-Portuguese menu which features house favourites like Candolim Midnight B**f Stew and Steamed Fish served in banana leaf with Asian herbs and Burmese jungle sauce, Burmese staples like Good Ol’ Khow Suey, but also a selection of amazing new dishes created out of this collaboration. Think Smoked Corn Gnocchi with banana flower ragu and black sesame; Dry Aged B**f Tartare seasoned with mango ginger, Burmese coriander and citrus aioli and Chorizo & Prawn Fried Rice with homemade XO sauce.

If you thought this was good news – and it certainly is – know this:  starting now O Pedro plans to bring Goa’s favourite haunts to Bombay, in a series of  “Off Season” collaborations. Did the clouds just part?

Grab a glass at the O Pedro bar to raise a toast, preferably one that contains the Candolim Punch (a smooth pour of Captain Morgan rum, sesame milk, jaggery syrup, cinnamon and lime); the Rangoon Mule, a heady mix of Black & White whisky, binger beer, kaffir lime, plums, ginger, galangal, lemongrass and lime; or the hugely popular Bomra’s Gin Fizz, an easy- breezy drink comprising Gordon’s gin, kaffir lime and ginger tincture, egg white topped with tonic water. There’s also a special Kokum Gose beer by Great State Ale Works for those who word associate Goa with beer.

Hops to it, then.

Getting there: Bomra’s Takeover from July 28 to Aug 14, for lunch and dinner at O Pedro, unit #2, Ground Floor, Jet Airways-Godrej BKC Building, BKC, call 26534700/01/02.
