Neuma, a modern European restaurant in Colaba, is now a new address for Sunday Brunch. Served amidst the sun-drenched interiors, the all-new brunch menu has a host of dishes to suit your taste buds. The restaurant invited us for testing and we can't miss to see what filmmaker Karan Johar, the owner of the newly opened eatery has to offer.
To start with we chose Avocado on Toast topped with goat cheese mousse and micro salad, and baked potato with cured chorizo, tomme, sour crème, and chili oil. While waiting for our order longer than expected felt that the service can be improved. The Avocado Toast tastes fairly well, though a little more dressing and additional veggies could have made the dish look more appealing. The Backed Potato too didn't please our taste buds, however, next were the penne pasta in red sauce, which we believed was the safest choice. The dish was not too pleasing on the taste with a very small quantity (not enough for one either) and highly priced. We loved their Shaved Fennel and Avocado, Grapefruit and Orange Salad, which though came in a smaller quantity but had a delicious taste and mixed well with different flavours.
If you wish to keep it light, we recommend to pick their salads. Choose from Neuma Caesar Salad, Apples with maple mustard dressing, candied walnuts, and Tomme de Bombai, or Burrata made with braised cherry tomatoes, kale, arugula, and sourdough shards.
