Lima -New Menu Launch

This year is definitely treating me well. After an amazing evening at Masala Bar, the next day we hungry jacks were ready with our stomachs to head to Lima for their revamped menu launch.

Lima, located at Bandra Kurla Complex, is just 2.6 Kilometers from Bandra Station. When it comes to Latin American cuisines, this is the place to be at. The lounge bar has been brought to life by none other than Chef Atul Kochhar, twice Michelin Star Chef.

On entering you will be greeted by really warm people. Ahead, the first thing you will notice is the fully loaded Bar.

Lima have revolutionized the flavours from Latin America, with culinary innovations done right by Chef Kochhar and Chef Jerry Thomas.

After settling down and finding my blogger buddies, we started with some drinks.

The highlight of the evening was Passion and Mango Pinacolada, it’s a little thick, creamy and something that was liked by everyone around. Garnish with a twig of mint leaf is a must try for sure!

Grilled Pineapple Margarita, the drink was garnished with grilled pineapples. It was a mix of pineapple, tequila and honey; the citrus adds the zing needed with tequila. Try it, if you’re looking for a sweet and tangy mix of tequila.

Time for awesome unique yet amazing flavor to experience from the Peruvian cuisines.

Tortilla Chips with assortment of dips; the chips are crunchy, tasty and served with green tomato Salsa, Cottage cheese and sour cream. This is something that one should order without thinking.

Ceviche Classico, its a little tangy but when mixed with baked sweet potatoes it almost neutralizes the sourness. It has chilies from Mexico, cheese and Leche de Tigre sauce, different yet appealing.

Esquites – Its taste says it all, one of the few veg dishes that I actually enjoy and would want to re-order. It has a buttery sweet corn broth, hint of lemon juice, potato salli garnish and sour cream. Served in a clay glass resembling the traditional ’khullad’.

Tinga Chicken Tostadas, it’s the American version of Sev Puri 😉 It has a little crunchy, thin base, topped with chicken, Tinga Sauce and Salsa Criolla.

Chorizo Molletes, it’s like an open face sandwich, it has Smoked and cured Chorizo, refried beans and avocado, something that you can skip.

Chicken Quesadilla, it has the filling of chicken, raisins, olives and aji panca (Peruvian red pepper).

Veg Quesadilla, it’s filled with potatoes, broad beans, green peas and Goat cheese. Both the Quesadillas have lip smacking taste and should be tried for sure.

Chimichangas, again we tried both the varieties, veg (filled with corn and cheese) and non veg (filled with shredded Lamb Pibil). Both were tasty, crunchy and great for munching. While having them with dips simply expand your taste to a whole new level.

Lima Sharing; it has different layers of sweet potatoes, tomato salad along with chili adobo. Like the name, the dish is meant to be shared with people you care 🙂

Chilaquiles;its somewhere between a desert and a proper main course. These are prepared using corn tortillas as the basis of the dish. Red salsa is poured over the crisp tortilla triangles. The mixture is simmered until the tortilla starts softening. Pulled chicken is sometimes added to the mix. It is commonly garnished with Crema, shredded Queso fresco (fresh Mexican cheese). The entire mix is baked so make sure not to touch the serving bowl but definitely try as soon as served – “Best served hot”.

If you still have any space left, do try their main courses. The beans stew and Mexican rice was so good that I couldn’t stop eating. It had Mélange of beans with tomato gravy topped with sour cream and green tomato salsa, served with Mexican rice.

The rice is cooked with the hint of smoke as a result even without a gravy the rice tastes amazing that one just cant stop eating it.

Overall the new menu is worth trying for; the food has the perfect blend of Peruvian flavours. It has something for everyone’s palate. Lima tops in terms of its hospitality. The warmth and friendliness of the staff definitely makes the visit worthwhile.

There is something for everyone at the table to love!
