For a city that relishes non-vegetarian dishes, the quest for more often becomes a challenging odyssey. However, your journey ends at Karan Johar's restaurant Neauma with its upcoming Southern Odyssey Pop-Up, which will showcase home-style authentic dishes from the costal regions of the South.
Crafted by the brainchild behind Mahe Goa, Chefs Sandeep Sreedharan and Sophie Radtke, Southern Odyssey Pop-Up will tickle your tastebuds with an array of non-vegetarian dishes.
The menu features Grilled Tiger Prawn Balchao, a zesty delight of spicy tiger prawns marinated in Goan Balchao, Crispy Kerala Fried Chicken inspired by North Kerala's street food, and Spiced Paneer in Banana Leaf for a burst of Malabar flavours. Try the Doodhi Carpaccio with a coconut-yoghurt dressing and Grilled King Oyster Mushroom with Mangalorean Gassi, a spicy curry served with umami mushrooms and crispy rice roti. Chef Sandeep’s Kori Gassi, the Mangalorean pulled chicken with rice roti and Red Snapper in Banana Leaf offer more Malabar delights. For a unique twist, enjoy Tempered Curd Rice with Cashew 65, Jackfruit Pepper Fry on Plantain Fritters, and end your meal on a sweet note with Payasam Mousse and Banana Compote.
