Winter special menu at Pizza Express, Ambience Mall, Gurgaon

I thought Jaime’s Italiano was the go to place when it came to authentic European cuisine. But after a rushed visit to Pizza Express, I found another heaven for subtle European cuisine. The décor is elegant and classy with polished marble interiors and spacious ambience. The colossal open kitchen and bar are as immaculate as a French fine dine. And the servers, what to say! They know their cuisine well and are quick to suggest dishes suited to your palate.

So they have introduced their winter menu and if you miss it, then please don’t complain! This special menu is available till 30th January and here are a few of them:

Creamy mushroom soup: Boy, hats off to the chef for conjuring this warm liquid of pure brilliance. The soup is smooth, creamy and has the perfect consistency. The occasional bite of black pepper accompanied with fresh mushroom halves is as food gasmic as it can get. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Dough balls with spinach artichoke dip: The dough balls are freshly baked, warm and light to eat. And when taken in combination with the creamy rich spinach artichoke dip, a fine balance is achieved. The dip is made with fresh cream and cheese and is thick and smooth with the bitterness of spinach not very prominent – a feat in itself. The sporadic chewiness of capers is a welcome surprise. RECOMMENDED.

Pollo Cajun Pizza: Created in rectangular form, with fresh cheese, capers, chicken and bell peppers adorning it on the top, this pizza defines the word finesse for you. The pizza is thin crusted and not too heavy or burnt. The fluffiness of the thin crust is commendable but I wish it justified the spiciness level of the word “Cajun” associated with it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Arrabiata Cannolini: When I mention about a pasta dish cooked in red sauce being excellent, you have to believe me! Because I am not a huge fan of arrabiata sauce. The red sauce presented here was freshly made with proper straining of the tomatoes done. The cannolini pasta sheets were fresh and light and the mixture of ricotta and spinach was way too smooth, creamy and melt in the mouth. RECOMMENDED.

Chocolate cheesecake : Dark chocolate lovers, cheer up! Because this three layered cheesecake will compel you to keep coming here time and again. The top layer is chocolate ganache which is a bit thick and bitter. The cheesecake is a bit dense than the usual cheese cake so as to balance the heavy ganache layer. The bottom layer is of cake mix which gives depth to this dessert. RECOMMENDED.
