This place is brimming with people. Getting a seat here would be as difficult as getting into Oxford with average math skills like mine (I have Siri to do my math). But I somehow used my charm on the girl at the counter "Honey, I'm super hungry and you send me back everyday".And with that sympathy note, we managed to get a seat in less than ten minutes.
|Now that we have got in, let's keep the accessories away!|
The ambiance reminded me of one of those country side pubs you barge into. Old and rustic feel. Wooden tables, brick wall, yellow bulbs, iron furniture. And I liked the way they have used hash tags and Hindi script everywhere. Loved it. Had a quick look around the place and settled down into our hours long non-sensical conversation. The menu was rolled up and kept on the table with cutlery. And tissues paper that looked like toilet rolls! Menu resembled a newspaper and we had vast choices to pick from. I skipped the breakfast section. Still don't get why I should step out of the comfort of home to have granola/oats or fruits!
|The Newspaper Menu. So many pages, so many options.|
Food - love it love it love it love it. More than the food, I liked the way they were presented. That's

|Shawarma, Yo Mama. The DIY Shawarma that made me feel like a mini Chef. I got a sense of pride making these shawarmas. Roasted chicken, hommus, garlic mayo, frech fries with pita bread.|
|Them Potato Skins, my trusted companion everywhere. Sour cream and grilled cheddar makes you realise how beautiful life is.|
|Poutine Fries - Classic Cheese. Definitely the cheese overload my tummy loves. I could almost hear my tummy scream to my mouth 'send more, send more'.|
|Gunpowder Calamari that came in the brown paper bag. Portion is less. I was generous enough to let my friend eat, while I was busy relishing Poutine, This came with garlic chutney and podi.|
|Death Wings. I was told that free lemonde will be given to those who finish this spicy dish. That wasn't required. Though we had very good spice tolerance, we gave it a pass as the taste wasn't too great.|
|Crispy Sesame Honey Chilly Fries. Need an explanation?|
Service was good. Servers were prompt, amiable and ofcourse I'll give bonus points for the sympathy score I got.
I'm told the drinks are amazing. And easy on pocket. Especially the LIIT. Perhaps the longest around. Since I'm a teetotaler (yes. SHUT UP. Thank you), I stick to mocktails and they are different and amazing. Welcome change from the usual pina coldas and mojitos. Not many options unfortunately.
|My Strawberry Iced Tea relaxing in a tub. Loved it. Not too sweet. Just about right.|
|Spiced Guava. I liked the bitter punch of guava and the occasional spice attack on your taste buds. You would keep wondering if it's bitter, sweet or spicy. Not that it matters.|
|Khus and Chilli. Khus, green chillies, sprite and soda. Honestly, I don't know if I like it or not. It was his drink. You could actually see him impatiently waiting for me to finish clicking. worth a try.|
|Thanks for the caption. I would have mistaken it to be Hydrogen peroxide otherwise.|
|Ramesh & Suresh - deep fried Five star chocolate with icecream. Sort of a mini disaster. Bad choice.|
Here's my rating :
Service 4/5 (+1 for sympathy vote)
Address : Churchstreet, right at the corner :D
Cost for two : 800 for two (teetotaler), 1400 for two otherwise.
Mood of the place : Quirky
