Tara Bose Kapur08 Nov 2018
We were very keen to experience Mumbai’s new Tapas bar and kitchen. So off we went after making reservations for 8pm, we’re told we’d have to leave by 10pm which has become the norm in many restaurants.
Uno Mas is located in a developing part of BKC... Inspire BKC which is very posh and huge. Lots more restuarants expected to open there, but right now Uno Mas is the only one open.
We walked into a well-done-up space which was smaller than what I’d assumed it to be based on the photographs I’d seen. Large D-shaped bar in the centre. One up level seating on the left and slightly elevated seating on the right.
We proceeded to order our drinks and appetisers. The server told us we would need about three tapas plates per head.
Here’s what we had:
Gambas Al Ajillo - garlic shrimp - delicious - we ordered another later - it comes with two thin pieces of bread to soak up the juices
Clams tossed with garlic, chillies and lemon – average
Calamares Rellenos - shrimp stuffed baby squid – average
Albondigas - buff meatballs – average
Patatas Machaconas Con Cerdo - potatoes with pork belly - below average
Paella - seafood one – good
Tarta Naranja - orange tart - delicious
We drank cocktails:
Aztec - malt whiskey-based
Sevilla - Drambuie, oolong, orange juice and sparking wine - very good
Kalingad - white wine, watermelon juice and sherry
Plane to Sitges -whiskey, aperol and sherry
Good and prompt service
Why was I not blown away? I think it was that the food wasn’t exceptional in taste, portions were small as informed at the start. Even the bread with the prawns was very thin and small-sized!
It’s early days yet so they can still fine-tune and improve the food! At these portions and prices, Uno Mas needs to be exceptional for customers to return.
