Review: Sunday Brunch at KODE, Kamala Mills

If you’ve read about our previous experience at KODE, you’ll be aware that we are already fans of this wonderful restaurant.

Recently, we stopped by to try their newly introduced Sunday Brunches. With a specially curated menu and as well as a buffet spread, the Sunday Brunch at KODE is priced at Rs.1750 + taxes.

The buffet spread included a range of cold cuts, cheese, sushi, salads, mezze and soups. We started off with the salads, and mezze moving on to the sushi and soup.

There was a menu that had hot food coming to our table straight from the kitchen. From the menu we ordered for the Turkish Flatbread with Meatballs – quite an interesting twist to the regular flatbread, came in the shape of a boat. The Shrimp Crostini, Shrimp tossed in a mustard sauce served on toasted bread, Potato Bravas – this was more like baby potatoes tossed in a tomato based sauce. The Buffalo Wings with a Blue Cheese Dip and the Herb Roast Chicken with Rosemary Potatoes and Jus, both were impressive. Well cooked and flavourful, a delight for non vegetarians. The star dish of the afternoon was the Lamb Shank with Red Wine Au Jus – melted in our mouths and was extremely succulent, a must try.

For drinks, we ordered theForgotten petal sour – Campari soap, with champagne foam, rose petals dipped in nitrogen, drink garnished with beetroot powder – absolutely loved the presentation. The Bird Eye, a vodka based drink, was served in a fish bowl and placed on a bird’s nest also looked spectacular. The drama that accompanied the drinks made it all worth it!

The dessert spread included Cheesecake, Creme Brule, Tiramisu, Chocolate Mud Pie, Chocolate Eclair, Blue Berry Yogurt and Caramel Ice Cream. While desserts are always great, are favourites were the Tiramisu and the Mud pie with Caramel Ice Cream.

Overall, if you’re planning to spend the weekend indulging in some good food, KODE should definitely be your pick!

Review: South High Kitchen & Bar, Kamala Mills

Gastro Darshini by day Café Bar by night, that’s how they describe this newest South Indian themed bar and kitchen that has opened doors in Kamala Mills.

We spotted this new entrant on our recent visit to Kamala Mills and it immediately caught our attention.  Got to know that it is run by the guys behind Mahesh Lunch Home and that being one of our favourites, our decision to dine was quite easy to make.

The interiors of South High Kitchen & Bar are contemporary with some traditional elements. Our favourite corner was the one with the patcha face graffiti.

Coming to the food, we absolutely loved the Koli 65 Pakoda – Deep fried marinated chicken and onion which came with a chutney, the Dosa Tacos were also interesting, looked like a Taco, tasted like a dosa.  In the mains, the Chicken Ghee Roast and Chicken Gassi are a must try.

I also tried their Signature Cocktail, the South High Whiskey Sour, which was your regular Whiskey Sour with a punch of Kokum. If you like your whiskey sour the classic way, then don’t try this one. Although, we quite enjoyed the South Indian version.

Overall, South High is a great place for a delicious South Indian meal. It’s got a great vibe and some delicious options on the menu. Service can be a bit slow, but we can pass that off as a teething issue.

Review: Poetry by Love & Cheesecake

Everytime there’s a new cafe in the city, we are the first ones to drop by and try it. It was no different with Poetry, a newly opened cafe by the guys behind dessert chain, Love & Cheesecake.

We went there on a rainy weekday evening and we were delighted with the cute little space with an abstract feel to it, justifies the name, Poetry. One side of the cafe had an enticing line up of desserts while the other side had a few tables to accomodate the customers.

We started with trying the Hot Chocolate. Extremely fascinating, the Nutella Hot Chocolate was. A chocolate ball in an empty glass and milk is poured over, these little gimmicks, we love ’em! The Hot Chocolate was not very dense and a good portion for one! We also tried the Nutella Layered Cheesecake and it was no surprise that we love it!

The interested part was that they give you the bill inside a book, a poetry book! How thoughtful! This one we’re sure is here to stay and is an absolute delight to visit.
