Bring out the candles and the band, it is time to ring in the 10th birthday of this fabulous restaurant- On the Rocks in Crowne Plaza Chennai.. The place has been delighting customers for a decade now, with their yumm food and the amazing drinks that Anand whips up! He is one of those who’s been around since the beginning days and continues to serve with a big smile on his face..  I don’t remember asking for anything specific and am one of those who will watch in glee as he pulls out all the stops in creating a drink… This evening, he served us something called Crefe, that had so many ingredients and quite a bit of theatrics as well.

The place also offers a new menu, well some of the old & popular dishes have been retained, like the Baked Camambert served with garlic & honey reduction and few others as well. The new menu is just as good, if not better. The Eggplant Parmesan was a clear show stopper plus it was served piping hot.. same goes for the Falafel salad  & Pumpkin ravioli… 
Among the non-veg dishes I saw the guys enjoy the Chicken and cheese involtini, served on a bed of glazed carrots & a few asparagus on top with a side of Jacket potato.. I did sneak out some of the veggies & they were delicious.. 

As for the desserts, while I love my berry treats, this time it was the Hazelnut crunch that won hands down.. The flavours, the textures were all amazing.. this is one of the dishes from the old menu that continues its journey onto the new menu…  

If you are looking for a place that offers amazing drinks, good ambiance and fabulous food, then On the Rocks is a place you should head to. Worth the indulgence… 

Happy birthday On the rocks and here’s to many more milestones~
