Dan Bro finally comes to India and although before last Saturday, I was not much aware of this chain, I totally enjoyed my experience here.
The restaurant/boulangerie is definitely a feast to eyes with its showcase of an array of desserts, chocolates and bakery items. The staff is well trained, the head chef very innovative and the manager very warm & welcoming. The only drawback I could see was the dearth of washrooms.
Quinoa Grilled Veg Salad: The goodness of juicy lime vinaigrette drenched quinoa, fresh lettuce leaves and perfectly grilled zucchini, French beans, mushrooms and bell peppers – it could not have been healthier.
Mezze platter: The falafels were pretty different from the usual and I loved this novelty. The presence of paneer/cottage cheese in the crispy falafel made a huge difference and the home made babaganoush, tzaziki and hummus were equally delicious.
Double cooked Al Fungi: Ohhh my, where to begin! When finely chopped juicy shiitake & field mushrooms are mixed with parmesan and cheddar cheese and fried to crispy perfection, then bomb is created. This is so obsessively delicious that the taste buds will be seduced by the lovely aftertaste.
Ravioli in smoked tomato broth: The melt in the mouth round spinach and ricotta raviolis are expertly crafted and drenched in the black pepper loaded tomato broth. This dish is a complete meal in itself.
Char grilled veg lasagna: For a fan of lamb lasagna, this one was good. The presence of minced soya chunks and whole wheat pasta sheets made this a healthier option. The usage of cheese was optimal here so this dish is not overwhelming.
Hot lava cake: Unfortunately, the lava cake burst before we dug into it. The taste was good and the cake went well with home made vanilla ice cream.
Strawberry cheese cake: Finally a place that uses real strawberries in the mascarpone cheese! You can actually taste the tangy strawberry fibres while gulping down this wonderful dessert.
