Pa Pa Ya was on the rim of my bucket list since a very long time and finally decided to hit the place on wednesday evening at 2000hrs.
Pa Pa Ya oozes glamour with its dimly lit, crimson-walled interiors.Projection mapping on a continuous installation of 3D hexagons accross the place which looked very different and classy. There is a black bar which you can see as soon as you enter the restaruant. Once the food begins to arrive at your table, you will just want to keep looking at the presentation its that beautiful. All the dishes they sampled had been plated like edible art.
The menu is over a dozen pages long out of which tapas, sushi and dim sums covered the maximum section.
Coming to Food and Beverages.
Mocktails and cocktails-
San Pellegrino- A special drink that the bartender decided to makefor me on my request. It had mint leaves, oranges, lime and some secret ingredients. The drink was excellent at taste. Could feel the freshness of mint leave and orange in every sip.
Black dog-Some fire flaming is a must when you hit this amazing place. Yet again a very special drink that was made for me by the bar tender which they usually dont serve. Fire flaming effect with wiskey is sure to hit you so be aware!! Taste was killer. One of the best drinks i had that night. It had orange peel inside the drink which gave it a little different taste and made the drink look beautiful.
Sauteed leeks and water chestnut- one amazing starter that we tried that night. Loved the flavour of water chestnuts in this dish.
Red curry infused wild mushroom-One of the best dish of Pa Pa Ya. Its a baked burmese dumpling. Crispy outside filled with wildmusrooms infused in red curry and amazing cheese cream suace. On the edges are the pea crumbs to give it a beautiful look. This dish is definately a must try!!
Asian margarita pizzette beer battred tacos- Crispy and tasty shells of the tacos filled with beans and cheese and a few more excellent ingredients. Loved the taste, portion size is good and quite filling.
