Mumbai’s cuisine selection is quite literally all over the map. If you’re in India’s City of Dreams looking for a Western dining experience, the Rodeo Drive, an extension of the Stables gastro pub, is a splendid place to indulge in American-style fare.
In fact, its highly anticipated launch is mentioned in Vogue India and the Times of India. So yeah, I would say that the grand opening of the Stables and Rodeo Drive in Andheri East is a big deal in Bombay.
And for good reason, too. I mean, have you tried their menu options? If you haven’t, fear not! I’ve listed some of their most popular, mouth-watering dishes below.
For seafood fanatics, Rodeo Drive’s Scottish salmon is sure to satisfy your tastebuds! Bonus: It’s always fresh from the grill.
Any time you have a menu item named after the restaurant itself, you know that it’s going to be a classic. The Stables burger is sure to be the star of your all-American dining experience.
Remember when I said that the best things in life come in threes? (Read: Day 3 Highlights from India Beach Fashion Week)
These mini pork sliders, appropriately deemed “Slide, sliding, slid!”, are one of those things!
Are you an herbivore? No worries! Majority of Rodeo Drive’s menu options can be substituted with vegetarian bites. Their insanely popular Insalata Caprese salad – a toss of creamy mozarella, aged balsamic, and ripe red tomatoes – come together in a refreshing ensemble that will transport your palate straight to Italy.
Ahhhh, the Oscar sangria. Merlot wine. Martini rosso. Martini dry. Brandy. Gin. Orange curacao. A signature.
Ask for the Cribber Ascot if you’re in for some fruity fun!
Your Rodeo Drive experience isn’t complete without dessert! If you’ve got a super sweet tooth like I do, the toffee brownie is sure to hit the spot. It’s topped with a dollop of ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce, so it’s totally understandable if you refuse to share with your date (I won’t judge).
Wild Nights at the Rodeo Drive
But the food and drinks are only part of the experience! What exclusive preview is complete without a beer pong competition and bull rides?
*Pro tip: The longer you play beer pong, the more entertaining the bull rides become! 😉
You’re sure to come across people from all over the world at Rodeo Drive, thanks to its diverse offerings! Locals and foreigners alike are drawn to this restaurant’s rustic charm.
