Do you get excited about toast? Well, start your meal off with the Trio of Bruschetta, and you will! Roasted Beet Mousse with black olives, Herbed Cream Cheese with homemade onion compote, and Cream spinach with confit tomatoes – this is one vegetarian start to the meal that’ll get your appetite buzzing!
Move on to the Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Croquettes, and you are in cheesy crunchy heaven. Oozy cheese, crunchy crust, and bacon – doesn’t get better. Pair it with a craft beer, and you are sorted!
And while you are at it, grab a plate of Seared Kaffir Lime and Lemongrass Prawns – the delicate flavors of the kaffir lime and lemongrass blend beautifully, making this a lovely palate cleanser for your next course…
…which is the absolutely brilliant Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli! One of the best ravioli dishes I have tasted in Pune – the pasta is silky thin, and the tart from the ricotta and sundried tomatoes parry the flavors of the subtle wine butter sauce beautiffuly. The crunch from the almonds gives the dish some much needed texture – all in all, a great pasta dish.
And just when you though I was going overboard with the vegetarian courses, fear not – the Thyme and Balsamic Lamb Chops are a carnivores’ dream. The sweet – sour sauce, made from Balsamic and honey create a great base for the meat and accompanying veggies and pomme puree (mashed potatoes, for those of us who speak english). I wish the lamb were a little less chewy.
#baconbaba loves his bacon! And to satisfy those cravings, we have the Bacon Wrapped Chicken Roulade. Bacon wrapped smoked chicken pate with red wine jus, roasted onions, herb mashed potatoes, carrot puree and sauteed mushrooms. Every part of this dish was absolutely perfect. What I loved was the golden sunrise of the carrot puree – brings a smile to your face.
Ending the meal with the Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake – the name itself lead us to order this dish. Made from 70% Dark Belgian Chocolate – this is the perfect bitter-sweet ending to a spectacular meal.
