Last week I was a part of the Bloggers Table at April Rain, Aundh.I have already reviewed the restaurant previously so I would not be going into a detailed description of everything. If in case you have missed out on it, here’s a detailed review-
The menu for the bloggers meet looked like this-
Oregano Cheese Sticks
Crispy Malwani Kurao Jatra
Basil enhanced Chicken Tikka
Gilafi Seekh Kebab
The quantity of the appetizers served was a little surprising at first, but by the end of it I couldn’t help thinking how well planned this was. The taste was good, I was glad to see they’ve maintained the quality. The only thing that disappointed me was the food being served luke warm. The seekh kebab in fact had got a little too rough to chew. My personal favorite was the chicken tikka.
Green Planet soup of Broccoli and Asparagus
This soup would be a perfect addition to a warm bed by a fireplace in a hill station tucked miles away into a forest, away from the city.
Young Chicken Steak, Mushroom and Red Wine Sauce
One word- DELISH! I had it the last time I was here too. Am extremely glad to know this has stayed the same….and on an empty stomach it tasted even better! :D
Tandoor Grilled Chicken in Honey Makhni Sauce
I might be going back for this sometime soon. The tandoori chicken served with a tangy orange sauce was a clear winner for me. The potato served as a side dish balanced the sweetness of the sauce, and complimented the grilled chicken. I was a little too stuffed by the time I got to this dish, but boy oh boy!!…I ended up eating it all up. *slurps*
Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake
Loved the halwa, hated the cheesecake and the fruits were my favorite. I’m not a big fan of gajar halwa, the cheesecake seemed more like a mousse topped with blueberry jam and the fruits were a great relief after all the delicious food I had stuffed myself with.
The desserts were a little disappointing, but I do recommend this place for it’s interesting versions of the regular Indian and Pan-Asian dishes. You could then decide for yourself after your first visit
