Chef Khullar turns over a new leaf at Mint Leaf of London
Award-winning Chef Khullar’s expertise has truly upped the dining experience at the popular DIFC venue
As one of Dubai’s most loved dining spots, Mint Leaf of London’s Chef Pradeep Khullar has spent months behind the scenes developing an innovative, eclectic menu to showcase the significant change at the restaurant.
Last weekend, my friends & I went over to try Chef Khullar’s menu packed full of new flavors and spices as he introduces ingredients and cooking techniques that have been previously unheard of at Mint Leaf of London.
While the brand’s philosophy and Indian roots remain at the core, the changes to their food and beverage offerings, combined with a new presentation style, have elevated the diners’ overall experience.
