Happy Birthday


LOCATED IN the Capital Court, Moshe's Oliva, with its serene landscape that has become a landmark on South Delhi's Outer Ring Road, is celebrating the completion of its first successful year.

After a year specialising in Mediterranean Cuisine, Oliva is now coming up with a new and varied selection of fondues, tagines, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes including breads, pastas, salads, soups and desserts, besides the much-awaited local and international wines. Harrissa chicken skewers and the Turkish patlican kabab are some of its new starters. Soups like bouillabaisse have also been introduced.

The grill section has dafina, a Moroccan Sabbath stew. The pasta and vegetarian section has exotic additions like the turlu tarlu, a Turkish preparation, and spaghetti Genovese from Genoa.

The smoothies and refreshments now include selections with inviting names like lemon grass cooler, blushing bride and peachycheek, while the dessert list reads endlessly from gooey chocolate cake to chocolate mikado to creme brulee. The list goes on to nearly 100 new items on the menu.

Moshe's menu is reported to be the culmination of his travels across the Mediterranean.

He believes travelling is an education in itself and should include researching the local flavours of each city. This has helped him understand the authenticity of each dish, and he feels whatever comes to the table carries all the flavour of his travel.

Moshe's popularity has hit not only Delhiites but also Mumbai's gourmets.

His popularity has led him to open Café Moshe in Crossword Book Store, Mumbai, and Moshe at the Pavilion in the Bombay Gymkhana. A bakery and confectionery is also expected to open shortly at Worli in Mumbai.
