Dirty Fries Loaded With Extra Cheese
This indulgent dish is everything you wish for to unwind after a hectic day of attending classes! The assortment of potato fries in the cornucopia of cheese and salsa is perfectly balanced and quite rich and creamy. Let's just put it this way - this dish we would consider as royalty as compared with your regular ol' fries!
Price | Rs 99
Nutella Shake With Chocolate Chips
This is the good old chocolate-y shake done right! Made with everyone’s favorite, Nutella, and topped off with some crunchy chocolate chips, the ratio of milk to chocolate was spot on! It fares well on your expectations, but the pricing is a little high when compared to the other things on their menu but then again, we'd give an arm and a leg for Nutella!
Price | Rs 149
Food Overloaded Special Omelette With Chicken
Served with toast and ketchup, this dish makes for a scrumptious all-day breakfast dish! The omelette was quite fluffy, light and well spiced with the helping of chicken chunks being fairly lavish. The toast was crunchy and deliciously buttered, however, we felt it would have been better if the dish was hot when served.
Price | Rs 99
Cheese And Salsa Maggi
The go-to meal at any time of the day! Maggi has always been a crowd favorite and this joint offers quite a large variety of Maggi with various yummy flavours and toppings. The Cheese and Salsa Maggi was a simple dish befitting its name. Regular Maggi topped with shredded cheese and tangy salsa made it quite different, however, we found it to be a little bland. This one needed a little more punch to come at par with the other dishes served at this place.
Price | Rs 70
This is a fusion pasta with Italian penne smothered in North Indian makhani sauce. The sauce is very similar to what you’d expect a shahi paneer gravy to taste like, and so it's very different from the regular alfredo and arabiata, but was refreshingly good! The spices can be adjusted according to your preference. Definitely worth a try!
Price | Rs 129
Butter Chicken Maggi
This name of this dish can make any chicken lover drool over it! A very innovative combo, this noodle recipe is perfect for this price point. The sauce was the same as that of the makhani pasta, and that was the only disappointing bit. Apart from that, juicy chunks of chicken with spicy Indian gravy gracing our favorite Maggi noodles is true a must have.
Price | Rs 70
The tasty and trendy dishes served up to us here left us happy and our stomachs full to their capacity. All in all, this place can easily become anyone’s regular hangout adda!
