Lunch at Jamavar London

My blog is slowly evolving into a food diary - thanks to a foodie husband ! Few weeks back we decided to go to Jamavar, a high end Indian restaurant by Leela Group.
Located in Mount Street, Mayfair Jamavar's interior style features mirrored walls, brass lanterns and screams old school bollywood elegance.

We went there for their Set Menu for lunch but ended up having both Set Menu and 7 course tasting menu :D
First off we ordered Rose and Rhubarb Lassi and Thandai from their non-alcoholic menu. They were quite refreshing as it was a surprisingly warm spring day in London. Thandai could have been better as it was too sweet for our liking !

When our lovely waiter asked we would want to have some papads, we were more than happy to
(supposed that they were included but was surprised to see it in the bill - However no complaints as chutneys were as delicious as it could get). Plus they also had banana fries which seem to be taking over appetiser scene in London restos recently !

Our three hour food rampage started with Kasundi Paneer with Mint and Raw Papaya Chutney. Its difficult to find well flavoured Paneer in London restaurants. This one though, just melted in our mouths. 

Then came best dish of that noon, Pan Seared Achari Pork with quail's egg and pickled garlic. Just writing about it makes me wanna go there and order 2-3 servings, sigh ! Pork was definitely kept marinated for long and slow cooked. Apparently this dish is not part of their main menu and its there only on the lunch and early dinner menu. I will say go for Set menu, just for this yummyness - Period.
