A result of the brilliant brainchild of Mr. Abhayraj Singh Kolhi., MRP is the cool, hip and modern new entrant in the area where not many people dare to take risks in!
Located in Dadar (East) MRP is the newest venture taken on by the Pritam Group of Hotels which boasts of having in its kitty names like Pritam Restaurant, Pritam Da Dhaba, Grandmama’s Café, Terttulia, Please Don’t Tell, The Roll Company and Toran.
The interiors of MRP have hues of the colours red, blue, yellow and grey that make the place inviting and chill.
The main attraction of MRP is the amazing offers they have on booze. If you are in a group and you end up spending more that Rs. 750 per head (which you obviously will), you can buy their inported alcohol bottles at MRP! Yes…no kidding! Moreover, all alcohol shots on the menu have been especially designed in a manner to revolve around fun games like darts, knots and crosses and foosball which you can play while chilling with your drinks. The cocktails I tried and absolutely loved were – “The Chi”. This was an etheral concotion of Pomogranate seeds, kaffir lime, bacardi and oolong tea and the Molecular DSLR which is a great take on the Pina Colada! DELICIOUS!
MRP’s menu has been designed and developed to be thoroughly Asiaj, but with a twist . This widely varied and thoroughly researched Modern Asian menu comprises dishes such as Papaya Noodles with Nuach Charm caviar, Peeking Duck Bao, Mushroom Tofu and Truffle oil Dimsums, Chilli Corn and Water Chestnut Taco, MRP Asian Mezze, Ramen Tagliatelle among a whole lot more.
The Red Curry Prawn Dumpling was basically a combination of my 2 most favorite things, Thai Curry and Dumpling, and just got me wondering why the hell have I never tried this before!?
The pick of the night for me was undoubtedly the Grilled Fish which were beautiful basa satays grilled to absolute perfection!
The Pork Belly Bao was absolutely delicious too. However the proportion of the Bao to the Pork Belly is what they should improvise on!
My other favorite was the Stuffed Mushrooms which stuffed and fried to absolute perfection and is a must have dish for all the mushroom eating vegetarians!
The Chicken 65 was nice and saucy and a perfect way to satisfy those chinese food cravings!
The Rock Shrimp Tempura is a perfect appetizer as an accompaniment o your beers or cocktails and though it is not a technically complex dish, the essence if it i.e. the crunchiness and the flavor of it was just perfect!
For mains, we had the Massaman Curry which was rich, earthy and packed with flavor and well perfectly with the aromatic rice served with it.
If you are in the mood for something healthy, the Asian Chicken Caesar Salad which is a great variant of the classic Caesar Salad, is what you should be opting for.
The Drunken Chocolate Sundae at MRP is something you absolutely shouldnt miss. A fabulous play on textures, taste and the essence of the numerous elements of this dessert, this one is a perfect end to a brilliant meal that you will definitely have at MRP.
All in all, MRP- Modern Asian Bistro is modern in all aspects of its being. Not only does the menu boast of some modern takes on asian food, but it delivers on what is served to its patrons too! Other then the amazing food, MRP is also a great place to chill with friends with some great music and a lot of games that you can play.
Until next time….
