This place was on my wifes wish list for some time. We had to visit City Centre Mall for some work, and we decided to drop in here after that.
As we entered we found the place nearly empty on a Friday evening, which I found fairly surprising. A special pizza festival was going on at this place but we were not in the mood for pizzas. Also I had some items shortlisted from my previous visit here. A few friends had specially suggested Rosemary Chicken on their menu.
As we sat down, we saw that a few of my close foodie friends were seated in another table. Shamelessly hopped across and had a bite of whatever they were having. The Chicken chipotle tasted nice, though the chicken quality was a bit fibrous. A bite of cheese pepperoni pizza was pretty decent though.
Coming back, we started ordering. The Raw Mango and Mint Lemonade (Rs 160) is an all time favorite of mine. It tasted as great as ever. The Chicken Bruschetta (Rs 180) again a favorite from my last visit was again a winner with the melted mozzarella and cheese topping. My wife was particularly impressed by this.
Coming to main course, we found that the menu has changed and Rosemary Chicken was no longer there. Next wanted to try Cajun Fish but again it was gone from the menu. Spoke to the Chef who suggested Pescado Veracruzano (Rs 440) a Mexican fish preparation. My wife, who had a heavy lunch earlier, ordered a light Piri Piri Chicken Burger (Rs 290).
The Piri Piri Burger was served with French fries, salad and a tasty dip. The bread was soft and the fillings were spicy. Would suggest this to anyone who visits the place.
The Pescado Veracruzano was essentially two fillets of fish (whereas the chef said it was murrel, the waiter told me it was basa it tasted murrel to me) in a Mexican marinade, served with mashed potato, sautéed vegetables and a dip. Everything was good except for the fact that the fish had not drawn in the juice. On enquiry the chef said that the fish was marinated for at least 3 hours. Maybe, the particular fillet acted stubborn and refused to draw in the marinade.
We did not order any dessert as we were quite full at the end of the meal. The bill for the four items came to Rs 1480, inclusive of a 10% service charge.
A decent meal, though not extraordinary.
