Light House Cafe – Now in Worli

A couple of weekends ago, I was invited to check the second outlet of Light House Cafe that’s newly opened its doors to the people on the other side of the sea link in Worli. Located on the main road, they have the advantage of constant visibility and it sure does look pretty amazing from the outside. If you’ve been the 1st outlet in Khar, you’d know that this one is a lot bigger and more family-centric.

The food menu too is a lot more extensive along with a bar menu that has some unusual concoctions in the name of cocktails. With 4 separate menus that spread through the day, I see how they can easily be the next all day dining space in the heart of Worli. Looking for breakfast? You’ll find it here. Want to entertain guests over high tea? They have a special menu set for the same. It’s a transitional menu… you get the drift, right?

The place is done up with recycled material… Stuff you’d otherwise consider crap and scrap away. From cycle tyres to old metal pipes, I think it’s a great way to get creative and reuse these everyday products in the most unconventional ways.
The evening began with 2 delectable cocktails. I love my cosmopolitan almost anywhere I go, so here was my chance to check out the one they concocts at LHC. It was pleasantly potent and I only needed one drink to keep me buzzin’ through the evening.

We also checked out this special blend called the The Green Lavender. To start with, I think the presentation was gorgeous and the drink – even better! More than a win-win situation, right? This one easily makes it to my TGLP recommendation list.

Once we had our drinks in hand, it was time to check out the appetizers.
The Jerk Chicken is well spiced and is extremely palatable if you enjoy spicy food. These Jamaican rubbed chicken pieces are a great way to add some spice to a drinking night and can be pretty addictive after the first bite.

An unusual sight on the menu, I knew I was intrigued enough to check out the Stuffed Calamari. What’s the stuffing you may ask? It’s none other than minced prawns. The generous drizzle of pesto on the top made this preparation extremely enjoyable. Also, the bed of salsa and tomato basil sauce it’s served on, adds further textures to this preparation.

Up next, I checked out the Falafel and Hummus. These Lebanese treats are served with classic hummus and Lebanese Toom sauce. I think it’s a pretty nice option for the vegetarians out there, although I have personally tasted better ones otherwise. The interesting presentation made it quite appealing.

Over to the main course…

We’ve all come across kimchi salads but who knew I’d ever get to taste a Kimchi Burrito? The moment I spotted it on the menu, we knew we had to give it a shot. A burrito wrap filled with Korean style kimchi fried rice, kimchi salad and topped with a spicy sauce made this main course quite a kimchi feast! One would think there’s too much kimchi, but that didn’t seem to be a problem for us. 🙂

If you’re a fan of coconut based curries that are close cousins to Thai and Cambodian curries, then you’re bound to enjoy this Grilled Basa. Served with spiced rice (which I personally did not enjoy because I believe steam rice would go best) and sautéed vegetables along with the a spicy coconut curry, the basa was perfectly cooked and the culmination of flavours were worth savouring!

If you guys know me well and my eternal love for cheesecakes, then this was bound to be a part of the tasting. I had never tried a coffee flavour infused cheesecake until that night. Being a fan of coffee too, I didn’t think the 2 coming together would be a bad idea. A little too sweet for my personal taste, the Cappuccino Cheesecake was quite lovely otherwise. The base crumbled too easily and I’m not sure if that worked for me. Nevertheless, it was a nice way to end our evening at the all new Light House Café – Now open in Worli.
