Peppermill opens a new restaurant - Bawabat Al Sharq Mall, Abu Dhabi

15 June marked a significant day in the short history of Peppermill, a restaurant specialising in serving traditional Indian cuisine with a contemporary touch. It opened its 4th restaurant in the UAE at the Bawabat Al Sharq Mall in Abu Dhabi. Peppermill seems to have found a following already, having garnered the FACT Abu Dhabi Award 2015 for Favourite Indian restaurant. I had the pleasure of trying Peppermill at Eastern Mangroves a couple months ago. Have a read here:

The opening was special in many ways. Ms Shafeena Yusuff Ali, the CEO of Tablez Food Company, the F&B division of retailer Lulu International welcomed everyone and expressed her excitement at the growing presence of Peppermill, a  restaurant that offers fine Indian cuisine in a stylish setting but at a very affordable price. Chef Dilip Johri, brand Chef, was also in attendance, chatting to guests and taking part in a  cooking demonstration with another very, very special guest.

Masterchef of India 2015 winner, infectiously vibrant Nikita Gandhi, was an appropriate and symbolic guest who with her youth and passion, captures what Pepermill is trying to do, which is in her words, "contemporizes Indian food without tampering (with its) authenticity".

But it was not just about speeches, and Chef Dilip and Nikita demonstrated how to to make Dahi Ke Kebab, inviting guests to participate. Truly memorable.

What followed was a taste for guests of some of the menu items. Based on this, it is clear that not only will Peppermill be a great addition to the dining scene at Bawabat Al Sharq Mall, it will also be immensely popular.
