A dear friend was in Chennai for a few days on work and we decided to meet one evening for an early dinner. The place was decided in a flash- Salt, Vijaya Forum Mall, Vadapalani. Both of us had been there earlier and loved the place and the food. She had reached ahead of me and done some shopping as well. We made our way to Salt, grabbed a corner booth and went about catching up on our lives.
I ordered for a strawberry based drink while she went for a Coke and then came the food. Being a hard core seafood lover, she went for the Nethili fry and I chose the veg starter. And for the main course, we went North Indian and ordered some roti and side dish which were amazing.
But the post is dedicated to desserts..We were both in the mood for something nice, my friend being a chocoholic opted for the Chocolate mousse while I asked for a portion of Gajar Ka Halwa … And within minutes a staff came to our table holding two large plates. We were excited and wondered what they were as he lay them in front of us.
The chocolate mousse plate had three big scoops of mousse with white chocolate slivers in between them sitting pretty on a bed of custard, while mine had a nice cupful of Gajar ka halwa, a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a bed of crumbled cookie with dollops of chocolate sauce. It had a very elegant look and we both dug in shamelessly.
I loved the halwa, it was piping hot and not over the top sweet. Her mousse was just divine, melt in your mouth but we were able to do justice only to one scoop. I took the remaining two home and shared with friends next day.
The entire meal worked out to about Rs1300/- which was total value for money… I think this is one of the few places where the food quality has been consistently good..
