Check Out These 7 New Menus In Restaurants In Mumbai In December 2023:

O Pedro’s new cocktail menu has been inspired by the antics of an alcoholic rooster. The aim is to retain the emphasis on fun and susegaad that the Goan restaurant is famous for. We had the opportunity to try the new offerings from their ‘Happy Go Rocky’ menu for ourselves. Don’t leave without tasting Ready Steady, a rum-based concoction with chikoo (sapota). It captures the sweetness of the fruit marvellously and is complemented by Indian spice mix as well as green tea. If you love dirty martinis, take a chance on Ziggy Zag, with caper-infused vodka, dry vermouth, Martini Bianco and sage oil. If you’re a Manhattan fan, go for the fruity yet potent Nightwing (Japanese whiskey, umeshu, Amaro Montenegro and Angostura bitters). Several other exciting libations await!

Nksha has recently launched a scrumptious High Tea menu featuring classic as well as experimental North Indian delights. We tried and loved the avocado sev puri and the Mini Raj Kachori. The latter has small pieces of fruit surprise that we especially appreciated. But the dish that we would return for is the Chicken Tikka Brioche Toasties. These were a heavenly treat! You can binge on pakodas, samosas, kachoris and kathi rolls here too. Among the beverages, savour good old masala chai or embrace the viral trend of dalgona coffee. If you want a more traditional option, you can also try their Masala Shikanji.
