Just when the summer is here restaurants have started introducing their summer special menus and dishes. One such restaurant is 5, at Santacruz West.
5 is known for its continental cuisine and has been around for a couple of years. We were invited over to try their special summer menu which included dishes like Squash and Lemongrass soup, Warermelon,Cucumber and Feta Salad, Black Pepper Crusted Chicken and more.
We started our meal with the soup which was warm and comforting. The Watermelon, Cucumber and Feta Salad with mint and balsamic vinegar dressing was refreshing and delicious, perfect for a summer afternoon. The Harissa Pomfret made it to our list of favourites as it was tender and the beetroot mash served with it complimented the dish well. Although the Black Pepper Crusted Chicken was not the best we’ve had, the raw mango salad served along with it left us craving for more.
For desserts, we skipped the Mango Cheesecake from their summer menu and opted for their signature Banana Torte from their regular menu. A choice we don’t regret.
We were pleasantly surprised with the menu at 5 and we suggest you go try it before the end of the season.
