Ministry of Crab - the Sri Lankan restaurant dedicated to serving lagoon crabs and the brainchild of chef Dharshan Munidasa and Sri Lankan cricketers Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara - opened its 6,000 sq ft Mumbai outpost at Zaveri House, Khar, recently.

The trio was joined at the launch by Ramit Bharti Mittal and Deepinder Batth, the directors of Gourmet Investments Pvt Ltd (GIPL), which has brought the restaurant to India. While Mittal serves as the chief executive officer of GIPL, Batth is its chief operating officer.

Among its highlights are the giant board on which the catch of the day (the signature of the brand’s restaurant in Colombo [which is on the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants]) is displayed (and from which the patrons can take their pick) and the open kitchen.

The three-storeyed restaurant, with a private dining room for 24, boasts of a destination bar that has one of the largest collections of wines, as well as an extensive collection of vintages. Cocktails to Whet Your Senses is a list of cocktails, which claims to provide a more sustainable approach to cocktail craftsmanship.

It uses fresh ingredients to concoct a number of dishes, including Crab Curry, Clay Clay Pot Prawn Curry, and Chicken Curry Rice, in addition to signature dishes from the menu at the Colombo restaurant, and a nibbles menu for the bar, curated by Munidasa.

Mittal said, “We aim to offer an elegant respite from the world outside, where you can feast on the legacy cuisine of Ministry of Crab and sip on fine vintage sparkling.”

Batth said, “We wanted to bring some fun and excitement to a luxury dining experience to the city, with the magic mix of a compelling physical environment, and, as always, our unparalleled romance with gourmet food. There was no better brand to achieve this than a restaurant from the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants - Ministry of Crab.”

On coming to India, Munidasa said, “We are looking forward to working in the Indian market with Indian crabs and the young Indian chefs. We are happy to have partnered with GIPL, as they share our value system and are committed to bringing the DNA of Ministry of Crab to give our guests an authentic experience.”
