|spinach, leek and celery soup broth|
The evening began well as the soup we were presented with was perfectly delicious! The Spinach, Leek and Celery Soup immediately fell into my ‘Highly Recommended’ List for both, the vegetarians as well as the non vegetarians in the city. Rich in flavour with perfect consistency this one’s got it all.
|crostini with chicken|
Up next was the sumptuous bites of crostini with olives, chicken, oregano and cheese. Such a great alternative to the regular garlic bread which also by the way is very good. The crostini is wholesome with enough amount of toppings to make it a worthwhile order!
|cous cous with chicken and mushroom|
We noticed an interesting selection of “Today’s Special” on the blackboard across the counter and decided to try it out one of them, since it isn’t on the regular menu. Although not a fan of cous cous, this one made me feel otherwise… The warm cous cous with chicken and mushroom is almost like something you’d want to categorise under ‘comfort food’. Light on the stomach and being flavourful at its best, we loved this preparation!
With a wide range of categories on the menu, we had a hard time deciding on what to hit and what to miss. The pasta we had – Pollo Cacciatore is an unusual preparation with rich, medium spiced brown sauce and fresh chunks of chicken along with tossed bell peppers… Almost felt like a distant but distinctive cousin of the classic arrabiata sauce. I decided to put this into the review specifically because you won’t find it on their menu and ordering it off the record will be a good idea!
|best ever supreme|
The Best Ever Supreme pizza… and it did live up to its name! With grilled chicken, roast beef, pork salami, caramelized onions and grilled peppers; this one’s a stunner of a pizza. We liked ours with a medium crust and it was ideal for the amount of toppings and innumerable meaty flavours. One can make a feisty meal out of this pizza.

|chocolate brownie devastation|
Yes, after all of the above, we sinned some more and concluded with this toothsome dessert! The Chocolate Brownie Devastation looks like a visual cyclone with chocolate brownie and cream swirling they’re way into a set maze. The walnuts only add to the crunch factor so that’s good for those who like nuts in general.
You’ll find four cafés in the city: Hill Road, Bandra (W), Churchgate, Tardeo and the recently opened outlet at Kamala Mills, Lower Parel.
