Mascarpone Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

The Mascarpone cafe is a one of those romantic getaway restaurants that offers both great food and a great ambience. Its a pretty good spot not only for couples, but also for families/friends(5-6 people) to come and spend some time to have food and chill !

The Location and Ambience :

This restaurant is located on the side of the East Coast Road.It is on the left side of the road while travelling from Chennai to Mahabalipuram/Pondicherry. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating.The indoor isn’t much to talk about. Its just a closed room with a capacity of 6-8 people maximum. But the outdoor seating is amazing! You can either choose to sit in the open and dine on the grass in the outdoor,or you can get your own cottage seating (for 2-4 people) which offers you good privacy (Perfect for a candlelight dinner 😀 ).The area isn’t all that big,but they make it look spacious with the arrangements.They have soft covers of all the latest pop songs being played in the background. The service is quite friendly and courteous. They make sure to give their guests privacy and yet get you the food on time!

Being a weekday, there wasn’t much of a crowd. And according to the management, peak time is usually during the weekend evenings.

The Food :

Now moving on to the important part, the food. Since we already had a few starters from the Moonrakers,Mahabalipuram, we couldn’t eat a lot. But that didn’t stop us from trying. We decided to try their Honey glazed chicken and the Spinach Ravioli. The honey glazed chicken was a bit sweet, crunchy and tasted pretty good. The spinach ravioli was bland. It tasted how it should, but was a bit too bland.(Authentic Italian!) I enjoyed the dish, but maybe they should consider spicing it up a bit for the Indian foodies xD. Now finally we decided to order the famous Mango pannacota. It tasted lovely, it was soft, creamy and just firm enough to hold the cream together. Also had a great mango flavour. For all mango lovers, this would be a treat!

The prices were a bit on the higher side, but I felt the quantity for the mains were pretty good. The dessert, was delicious and tasted as good as it looked.

Overall, good food to go along with the great ambience. And If you are searching for a place to eat, away from the hustle bustle of the city with a date, I would definitely recommend this place! The Mascarpone cafe gets a foodfella rating : 4.2/5

Okay so before I start off with this one, I have to say I actually never imagined going to Chili’s to dine, becauee I always thought of Chili’s as one of those overrated, high priced restaurants (Maybe I wasnt too off point either). But I am actually quite happy that I gave the place a try 😀 And also would like to give a special thank you to zomato gold and The dine out app for helping us keep it economical!

The Thattu Idli kada.

Tamil Nadu has always been famous for its Dosas and idlis. Be it an early morning Onion Uttapam for breakfast or a Masala dosa for dinner, they make sure that they always serve it hot and tasty. But how about trying out the same from a Banglore based shop? And that’s how we found out the “Vaishnavaa’s Banglore special Thattu Idli and chat shop“.

Eurofoodie series – Belgian Waffles

What’s a Belgium trip without trying their authentic handmade chocolates and trying out their famous waffles. So upon recommendation from Devi, I decided to try out this waffle place near the ‘piqmanneqin’ (which is the small statue of a child peeing into a fountain, which has quite a funny history to it) during our tour stop in Brussels called ________. It’s basically a ‘make it yourself’ waffle store.(The entire city is filled with them). You start by selecting the kind of waffle you want as base(normal,Belgian or wafflecone) and then you start filling them with toppings which range from Nutella, whipped cream, sauces, different types of ice creams to nuts, fruits,crumbs etc.So my mom, dad and I decided to get 2. For the first one, we decided to go with the Belgian waffle topped with Nutella, strawberries and mokka(coffee) ice cream. And the second one was a normal waffle with strawberries and kiwi with chocolate sauce. The waffles were really good. Probably one of the best I have ever had. Especially the 1st one. Not just because it had Nutella, but the waffle got soggy from the ice cream and that just made it taste better along with the strawberries and Nutella.

The 2nd one was maybe a bit too fruity for me, and the waffle crust was harder, but I still did enjoy it (My parents seemed to enjoy it better though).
It’s not everyday that you get to enjoy Belgium Waffles right from the busy streets of Brussels. It definitely was one hell of an experience !!

Foodie achievement unlocked 🙂

Keep following the Eurofoodie series for more 🙂

Happy Fooding guys 😀

But nevertheless,i tried getting around and out and tried as many bites as i could. So this is the start of a short yet delightful Bon Viveur’s western European journey.

Cereal killer Bistro – The review.

Back when I was in school(4th grade),The one thing that I did not look forward to in the morning was breakfast. Its not that I had any hate against it, But as a school kid, getting up to Idlis and Uppmave were not my ideal idea to start the day. Thats when my mother had a brilliant idea and started giving me Cereals and milk(Chocos,Flavoured corn flakes,even fruit loops and Muesli) And this is how my love for Morning cereals began. (Way more tastier 😉 )
