Cafe at NCPA

This is an open air cafe on the premises of NCPA, Nariman Point. However, its now covered – I’m hoping its because of the rains and when the weather changes, it’ll be open air again. The cafe started off initially with just about 8 to 10 tables and now its expanded to thrice its initial dining area. Its a lovely place to unwind. The tables are well-spaced, music is soft and lilting. Service – impeccable. Guess, I like the place.

The menu too has expanded. It has its in-house list of options, menu from Amadeus and then a selection from Joss as well.

Starters were Ulte tawe ke gilouti kebab, Chili cheese toast and a Fresh lime soda.

The Gilouti kebabs were absolutely splendid. Rs. 175 for 6 pieces. Its a must-order starter. It gets a 5 on 5.

The chili cheese toast – melt in the mouth. As good as it can get. Rs. 160 for a portion of 4. It gets a 4.5 on 5.

Fresh lime soda – perfect blend of sweetness and the lime. Refreshing.

For main course, we ordered the Corn crusted cheese and jalapenos burger with creamy spicy sauce – sounds lip-smacking?    : )   We also ordered the Prime grilled beef burger with cheese pickles and caramelized onions and a chicken Nasi Goreng.

The Corn crusted cheese and jalapenos burger was really, really good. Take a bite and you can taste the crunchiness of the corn and the melting cheese at the same time. The caramelized onions add to the flavour. At Rs 260, a complete meal as its served with french fries and Cole slaw. The Cole slaw is delectable. Rated it a 4.5 on 5

The Prime grilled beef burger with cheese pickles and caramelized onions too was appetizing. It too was served with french fries and Cole slaw. Price – Rs. 360. It gets a rating of 4 on 5

The chicken Nasi Goreng was good in taste. At Rs. 300 it was a regular fare. Rating it at 3 on 5

The above were ordered and eaten by three persons. We were satiated but my friend wanted to try their dessert. Our server recommended the Chocolate Cigar – so be it.

The Chocolate Cigar is served with Prune and Armagnac ice-cream and a walnut cookie. At Rs. 350, the 3 of us went to heaven. Its a MUST ORDER. The chocolate cigar is a chocolate mousse (strongly coffee flavoured) encrusted in a thin chocolate casing, served with a two servings of awesome ice-cream. Rating 5 on 5. (If I could – i would give it a 6 on 5). Pure bliss.

Will definitely keep going back to try the other selections on the menu.
