Jade & Ginger: A culinary explosion on capturing the essence of Asian cuisine!
Nestled in a quiet by-lane in Bandra, Jade & Ginger is a deli serving flavourful Asian-inspired food.
Created by the makers of The Tanjore Tiffin Room, Bombay Taco Company, and more, this deli has a cosy outdoor seating area filled with plants to create a calm, vibrant, and soothing atmosphere. Whether you’re here to catch up with friends, or just to grab a quick bite, you can be assured of a quiet moment before getting back to the hustle and bustle of Bombay.
Chef Parth Purandare has curated the menu offering a variety of salads, sandwiches, sliders, baos, tacos and smoothies. Salads include the Nippon Classic Salad, Asian Avocado Cobb, Katsu Chicken Salad, and Vietnamese Buff Salad. There are some interesting sandwiches like the Chicken Banh Mi, Thai Meatball Sub, Shrimp Po’Boy, Miso Steak Sando, Spicy Bangkok Mushroom, Red Bean and Shitake Sliders, and Pulled Jackfruit Rendang that let you explore Asian flavour combinations in an interesting playful way.
You must try the Baos at Jade & Ginger - the Spicy Bangkok Mushroom made with Water Chestnut, Holy Basil, and Pickled Veg or the Bang Bang Shrimp made with Thai Chili Jam, Creamy Coleslaw, Pickled Veg. The Taco offerings come in a set of three soft shell tacos; their flavours play on your palate in a way you haven’t experienced before. Try the Spicy Chicken Karaage made with Lime mayo, kimchi slaw, and pickled mooli or the Babycorn and Mushroom Tempura made with Sriracha mayo, togarashi dust, sesame carrot slaw.
These dishes are an ode to the rich and diverse flavours of Asia. The Chef has struck a perfect chord with the melange of modern and authentic, fresh but not fussy while also being delicious, healthy, and satisfying. Jade & Ginger also offers refreshing smoothies like Gold Coast, a tropical favourite made with pineapple, banana and coconut juice; Green Goblin a drink that looks like the Hulk, made with avocado, mint an d honey; Refuel, as the name suggests is an energising smoothie made with berries, yogurt and banana; and Roots is a fun smoothie made with chia seeds, pomegranate, green apple and beetroot.
Speaking about the launch, Kishore DF, Founder of Jade & Ginger, said “The success of Bombay Taco Company gave us the courage to let our rebel streak run wild. Asian food is becoming almost an obsession in Mumbai. However, we noticed that there was a major void in the middle market. At one end of the spectrum, we see fancy Japanese restaurants opening up across the city, and at the other end we immediately associate momos with spicy street food that leaves us wanting more., - launched a deli that would fill the gap; evoke interesting Asian flavours and rest easy on the pocket. The essence of the place is this balance, not just in terms of flavour!”
Parth Purandare, Head Chef and Co-founder said “We are excited to launch Jade & Ginger! It is comfort food for everyone; no matter your likes and dislikes or dietary restrictions, you will find something delicious on our menu. All our food is made in-house; we ensure that we get great ingredients and everything is fresh. We’ve made it a point to have salads, sandwiches, and smoothies that are delivery-friendly. We were keen to offer a choice of foods that bring together the best of flavour profiles and dishes; not always associated with Asian cuisines. We wanted this place to fit the profile of Bandra and be nimble enough to take to other exciting neighbourhoods in Bombay and beyond.”
