Quattro is best known as a vegetarian foodie’s heaven! And when we learnt that they have launched a new menu, we couldn’t wait to dig our forks into it!
So we dropped by at Quattro, Lower Parel on a Wednesday evening and to our surprise, most of the tables were reserved.
The new menu consisted of a limited number of Italian and Mexican delicacies alongwith the classics that were their in their previous menu. We started our meal with the salads, the Insalate Castano which comprised of water chestnuts, beans, cherry tomatoes and shallots tossed in a Mexican sauce and served warm, unique and delicious! We also tried the Liquid Salad which was nothing but a juice of greens like kale, topped with Parmesan cheese.
Olive and Mushroom Crostini
In the appetizers, we tried the Olive and Mushroom Crostini, Taquitos and the Jalapeno Queso. Our favourite was the Taquitos – Fried gluten-free tortilla cones filled with beans, jalapeno, salsa and topped with avocado ice-cream! Yes, avocado ice-cream!
In the mains, we called for the Oliviera Pizza, which was nothing but a Margherita pizza topped with molecular olives. Quattro is known for their delicious thin-crush wood fired pizzas and this one didn’t let us down!
In the drinks, we tried the Spicy Watermelon mocktail and the Michelada – a Mexican beer cocktail. While the Watermelon mocktail was worth a try, the Michelada was too strong for our taste buds.
Coming to our favourite part, the desserts! When they say, don’t forget to save space for desserts, they really mean it for Quattro! Try the Chocolate Saturn and the Tiramisu and just see the pictures to tempt you! A treat for the eyes and the soul. Also, if you are here to celebrate some happy occasion, try the Chocolate Candle, you blow it, you cut it and you eat it!
