This gastronomic event flawlessly merges revered Parsi culinary legacy with contemporary European flair, just in time for the Parsi New Year.

Parsi Cuisine Reimagined at Neuma

The Tempura Bombay Duck captures the essence of coastal delights. The concert of crispy textures and tangy notes, reminiscent of Parsi culinary magic by the shores, is worthy of a standing ovation from all takers.

The Bharuchi Akoori on Sourdough Toast serenades your senses with its harmonious blend of Raisin Marmalade, Roasted Almond Flakes, and Matchstick Potatoes.

The Assorted Lentil ‘Dhansak‘ offers warmth, nostalgia, and a taste of time-honoured affection.

Kheema Papeta crafts a Parsi melody on the palate, where potato gnocchi dances with curried lamb mince in the warm embrace of green pea puree.

Drizzled with pomegranate molasses, Parthian Pulled Lamb is a plateful of Parsi affection, honouring ancient roots with every bite.

The dessert options at Neuma are swoon-worthy.  Zereshk and cranberries dance gracefully across the canvas of Brioche Lagan Nu Custard, while Caroli Tuille and Doodh Puff add as the most refreshing conclusion to this dessert masterpiece.

Meanwhile, the Yoghurt Semifreddo embodies the very spirit of Parsi culture, infusing the warmth of Parsi sev and the irresistible charm of salted caramel, summoning the fond memories of sharing Parsi sweets after a meal.

“Being a Parsi, my connection to my culinary roots runs deep. The ‘Modernist Parsi Pop-up’ is a labour of love, a manifestation of my devotion to the rich flavours of my upbringing. By blending the intricate Parsi cuisine with contemporary European techniques, I aim to offer an unforgettable gastronomic experience that pays homage to tradition while embracing the present.” says chef Viraf Patel.

As enthralling as it may sound, Neuma aces the whole “Modernist Parsi Pop-up experience to a new level. So this Parsi New Year, go splurge!
