Since i was the only non-Indian in the team and not very particular with the cuisine as long as its good, i'm up for it. We went to this cafe tucked in Tanjong Katong Road, where a vegetarian dining experience awaits.
The ambiance was very girly. First glance, pink stood out despite of the black combination with it.
like the wall of fame of bollywood stars
Dahi Sev Puri (4/5) - light, puffed, crispy savories with assorted coarse wheat fillings and chutney topped with yogurt. It had a nice sweet & sour taste, but if you eat it like a princess (with small bites), then you end up with a mess. They taught me to put the whole thing inside your mouth to wake up your taste buds. I'm not a fan of yogurt in dishes, but this one worked well for me.
I didn't mind the mess, there goes the oozing chutney & yogurt
Gobhi Manchurian (3.5/5) - cauliflower cooked in garlic, onions, ginger and coriander. I find this version a bit oily but the aroma was exquisite (smell sooo good). A different side of an indian dish as the taste was not so distinctive so it's good for those who wanted a bit mild. (trivia: do you know this was originally a chinese dish but now more famous for Indian-Chinese fusion?) It's cooked in a different way and I prefer my gobhi swimming in its sauce than the dry type. But, it's just a preference.
For main course, we ordered their:
Assorted Bread Basket (3.75/5) - we were allowed to choose 4 types of bread, and we had kulcha, 2 types of naan and roti. Kulcha was my least like, as i think it's too sweet so i just stick with my all-time favorite naan, which was soft and fresh. I love naans and wouldn't mind having a lot of it, if it doesn't add any inch to my waistline. :D
Yellow Daal (3.8/5) - i've been eating indian food but daal had never been part of those meal. I just find it a bit boring, and eating bread with saucy beans just doesn't work for me except for red bean pau hihi. But since being in an indian vegetarian, i guess, i don't have any choice but to dig in. And surprisingly, it was nice. The sauce was sweet and with exotic spicy taste. I didn't expect that this bowl of beans would make wonders with my naan. Slurp slurp...lick lick my fingers...it was yummy!
To wash off those food down...i had masala tea(3/5) - with ginger, cardamom and mint leaves and a lot of milk (the indian way). I prefer just fresh tea, but i don't mind having it the indian way once in a while.
I didn't know bidding farewell will be this good! And the best thing about it is, your ex-colleagues become your friends.
