Food Ka Mood Gives Foodies Mumbai Inspired Street Food in the Heart of Dubai
Located in the main Zabeel area of Karama amidst other eateries, Food Ka Mood is an almost brand-new eatery that serves up some of the freshest and most innovative Mumbai style inspired street food we’d ever eaten.
A very Instagrammable venue, Food Ka Mood is set up like a modern bistro style eatery, with two dining halls, both set up to accommodate social distancing and ensure all official SOPs are followed. We started with the Red Marbles; a fusion Indo-Italian cheese and corn balls nestled in a flavorful Ragu style sauce, heady with the flavors and aromas of basil and oregano, and topped with lots of cheese. The Softy sandwich, paying homage to the famous Bombay sandwiches, was small sandwich rolls stuffed with tomatoes and cucumbers, and also topped with cheese. These were super soft and very fresh. We also had the Butter Masala wada pav—a potato cutlet nestled in a buttery bun, served with chutneys.
We love pav bhaji; and here, there are several varieties offered; we tucked into the Food Ka Mood special—an unique, half green Hariyali masala and half red bhaji masala, all in one platter, topped with generous amounts of butter and served with soft pav buns. This is served with diced onions and slices of lemon to squeeze over the masala and scoop it up with the bread.
Here, there are some unusual takes on the South Indian staple; dosa. We ordered the the Food Ka Mood dosa, stuffed with vegetables, mayo, and and cheese, standing vertically. Set in a style that resembled Dubai’s most famed skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa.
Another point to mention is Food Ka Mood specializes in some very different kinds of mocktails; with a mixology menu with more than 60 special mixed mocktails. We tried the Mogambo, the American Green, and finally, Harmony—a yummy blend of litchi and coconut.
For mains, we indulged in the Sizzler—we selected rice as the base but the other option was noodles, topped with veggies and a delectable sauce, topped with grilled paneer, a vegetable cutlet, and more cheese. It was a meal in itself and absolutely yummy. Desserts here are shakes and some divine faloodas. I tried the mango and strawberry shake, topped with jelly cubes while my daughter tucked into a traditional rose falooda, complete with vermicelli and ice cream, topped with rose syrup.
If you love street food, set in a cozy ambiance with friendly service, do not miss Food Ka Mood.
