I decided to go in for the much talked about Garlic Prawn Fettuccine and now I know what everyone is talking about. Here is a dish that is literally light and fresh... the prawns with their little tails still on were moist and had a great bite. Torn fresh basil in the garnish adds to the freshness and every bite was seriously on the mark. A lovely dish and one I would love to learn and make myself... but then, when it is done so well already, why bother... just have to head to Red Fork.
Anoushka had the fish and chips, which came with a mayo and a slice of lime.. Both, the pieces of fish and the hand cut chips were in a paper cone, adding a nice touch. The batter fried fish had a thin, yet crispy coating and Anoushka managed to get through most of it.
Our friend had the Grilled chicken breast with chermoula and mushroom mash - the chicken breast was a good size and nicely grilled. It was the chermoula that added the zing to the entire dish and the mash that added the balance to it. A really nice one that we were sad to see get over.
For desserts we had the the caramel custard and lemon cheesecake. Both really nice ways to end the meal.
Overall, we loved the idea of the blackboard menu and I think what really works here is the personal service. Besides Zarine manning the floors, we were constantly checked on and not in an intrusive way. And the fact that Anoushka had a her first full glass of juice here made us really really happy parents. Did not get a chance to check out the loo here, but am guessing its in good condition. This meal came close around Rs 2000 approximately, well worth it.
