and always wanted to have our own Bistro kind of a place. And since we are now
together, working in our Bistro, the place is called The Bistro Story” said Ravi [one of the owners]. That was the clue- The Bistro Story is where we were for dinner last night.
ordered a drink each- Aam panna [raw mango juice], Rose milk and Jal jeera. All
of them were yumm to the dot. While we savoured our drinks, we waited for our
Eastern bites platter to arrive- it is similar to the Mezze platter- Falafel,
pita bread, Fattayar [mini samosa with spinach and cheese], feta cheese and 3
dips- hummus, tzatsiki and babaganoush. The Falafel was just wow, so was the
Fattayar, and so were the others on the platter. They were all hot, fresh and
filled with unique flavours. Big thumbs up for this dish!
the Chef convinced him to instead try their Nachos and he promptly did. It was
a plate of goodness- Nachos with a touch of cheese served with tomato salsa. Yet
another good dish.
with 2 pasta dishes and one paneer. The paneer dish had 2 paneer triangles
sitting on a bed of cooked lentils served alongside a cup of rice topped with
okra fritters. It was alright, very Indian. The highlight of this dish were the
Okra fritters [ I could have eaten a big bowl of just that]
basil & burnt garlic sauce, while I went for the Pesto [basil, parmesan
cheese, garlic, olive oil and pistachio]. Both were yummy, but I loved mine
more [am a sucker for pesto].
pasta, the little one went ahead and got a bowl of French Fries [he knew what
he wanted and wasn’t leaving without it…] Kids~!!
to the Chef [hopefully not distracting him much], and got a bit of insight into
the kitchen and the things they created in that cozy space. Most of our dishes
he cooked on the Induction stove, but there were huge burners which he said
kicked into action when the place was packed or large volumes were needed. He
also told us about how they relied on locals for their produce and did not
import anything. For ex, their Cheese was from Pondicherry.
the lure of the dessert lingered. We chose the Sticky pudding with toffee sauce
& vanilla ice cream while the little one chose the triple chocolate mousse
[hope I got the name right]. I quite enjoyed my sticky pudding, but felt it was
tad sweet and so sprinkled some salt on
the sauce and it made a world of difference, enhancing the taste…
