    Mumbai : The Solitaire restaurant at hotel Kohinoor Continental, based in Andheri, Mumbai is offering Mumbaikars a delicious and authentic cuisine of Karwar prepared by the Karwari Master Chef itself with its Karwari Food Festival during 6thNov to 17th Nov.

Even the servers are dressed in traditional Karwari wear to give it a perfect touch. Apart from this, manyrenowned celebrities are visiting the food fest making it more happening to the guests.


    Karwar being located at the beautiful coastal town on Karnataka and Goa border, the staple food of this region is rice & fish, but the vegetarian curries (Kari & Upkari) are absolute worth a try. Karwari cuisine, like the land itself, has many spicy flavours and tastes with its natural surroundings to add the original homely flavour to the delicacies. Karwari food is simple but most, though not all, of it is chili hot, spicy, and pungent. Items made from rice, fish, and coconuts abound in every meal in Karwar. Though Karwari food culture has always retained its own identity, the authentic one has hardly reached the commercial front. Hence The Solitaire restaurant is inviting all the food lovers across Mumbai to unfold the traditional taste of Karwar through this food fest.

In main course includes Visvan Ambat (King Fish Curry), Mori Sukhe (Shark Curry), Sugata che Sukhe (Crab and prawn semi fry), Karwari Checken Masal(Green Chicken), Tisrya Amti (Clam curry with drumstick and raw mango) and many more. In dessert you can enjoy with Sukrunde (Gram flour and Jaggery dumpling), Kelya Mulka(banana flitter), Gadbad Ice Cream and other delicious dishes.


    The menu finalized for the festival is handpicked by our Karwari Master Chef – Mrs. Madhavi Kamat & she has taken utmost care to get the ethnic flavors on your plate. There are equal amount of Veg. & Non-Veg. presentation. Sea food is dominatingly present in the spread.
