Lavaash by Saby,located in the beautiful setting of Ambawatta One,is a gorgeous restaurant serving Armenian and Bengali Food,flavours of both overlapping in some dishes.
The place transports you to a Mediterranean setting with hues of pristine white and gorgeous blues setting tone for the place.
After we were done admiring the beautiful motifs,tilework,decor and exquisite furnishings,we moved on to the food.
For drinks,I ordered the Kahwa-Tini, which would be the ideal cocktail for any coffee lover.
We began with the Armenian Mezze Platter.What stood out in this platter was the Hummus,which instead of the usual chickpeas,was made out of white beans. The hummus had a very creamy texture and was finished within seconds.
Crispy lentil sticks,served with mint crumbled delicately under the fork,but were not something I would like to order again simply because I'm not a lentil fan.
The Jurassic cheese pizza was made using three types of cheese,had a crunchy thin base and had a generous sprinkling of herbs and oil. It tasted flavoursome and was a without a doubt the best part of my meal.
The Indigenous Cheese Platter came with Indian Counterparts of well known cheese around the world. It was definitely a very unusual cheese platter,nothing like I've ever tried before and came with Berry Coulis and Kasundi.
The Prawn Tolma was a prawn preparation served inside braised onion ring with a sweet taste and intense Kasundi flavour.
The Lavaash Fish was another dish that I loved,with a beautifully sweetish-sour marinade wrapped around a perfectly cooked fish.
My experience at Lavaash was absolutely spectacular. The extensive use of Kasundi definitely made me a fan,since I absolutely love it. The food,though a little different,has the familiar taste of Bengali Influence. With beautifully exquisite decor,a terrace that has the Qutub view and distinctive food,Lavaash can easily be your go to place for Sunday brunch under the winter sun.
