While contemporary-Indian is certainly the flavour of the season, The Melting Pots groups have always come on top with Cafe Lota and Melting Pots Tiffins. While we love their general earthy, rustic look; their new restaurant Monsoon exudes a feel of relaxed opulence. Every aspect of the restaurant has excellent attention to details: from their decor to the cutlery to their food. We loved their watercolour peacock branding, the warm yellow lighting and the beautifully textured plates. For food, just like their other outlets, there are a lot of exciting choices from various regions of India. You’ll also find the prices to be quite reasonable for the quality of food and the ambience.
We tried their Odd-veg kebabs(Mushroom galouti), Mulakikattathu Fish (Sole with curry leaves and mustard), EIB Prawns(Mustard vinegar prawns served with pao), Chorizo-Spinach- Caramelized Onions Kulcha with raita, Kheer and Chocolate Torte. There was nothing we didn’t like and wouldn’t recommend.
The Mulakikattathu Fish, Chorizo-Spinach-Caramelized Onions Kulcha and Kheer stood out for us, and we’d be returning for those. Do also try their Hibiscus Iced Tea which also works as an excellent palate cleanser.
If you do find Chef Maheshwari at the outlet, do ask him for recommendations. We were delighted with the Chorizo Kulcha he suggested.
