Freakshakes and Sheesha at Cafe Azzure

Cafe Azzure is a new rooftop sheesha place located in MG Road. It has a quiet indoor seating and outdoor seating (which tends to become noisy at peak hours). I was here with few of my friends after hearing about their unique hookah flavors and interesting freak-shakes!

The first drink that caught our attention was Blue Heaven, probably one of the best mocktails served here – bright color with refreshing flavor is all I needed after a sunny ride! Apart from this, Mango Margarita and Green Apple Mojito were on the list which took a back seat when compared to Blue Heaven.

Nachos is my default order at all places, so ordered Schezwan Chicken Nachos. Crispy bites, creamy, cheesy, spicy chicken chunks and tangy salsa – easy peasy! Sesame Chicken Strips was well seasoned but had become little soggy by the time we ate them. Cheesy Jalapeno Balls could’ve been made of creamy cheese to get the stringy feel.

Milkshakes, more like freak-shakes are now being a common trend among cafes! Taste, richness, and presentation is the key for a successful shake and Cafe Azzure has nearly-perfected with three of their shakes – Chocolate Freakshake, Nutella Shake & Ferrero Rocher Shake! Chocolate Freakshake is a combo of chocolate milkshake and Kitkat, well balanced throughout making it a must try! Nutella Shake and Ferrero Rocher Shake were blissful and filling much, only if I could’ve more of them!

Cafe Azzure’s Special 7 Wonders kept us going for most of the evening with its unique mixture of flavors! I’d suggest this, if you would like to try something new, else prefer the normal ones. Sulemani Tea is an odd addition, but it’s that worked way better with sheesha compared to other mocktails.

Thinking of Creamy White sauce pasta still makes me droooool, calories overloaded but it didn’t stop me from going for a second round! Twisted Chicken Pizza is from Instagram to Instagram and for Instagram – I’d been wanting to make this myself but never got the chance and ordered it right away without second thoughts. While the filling was on point, the base could’ve been softer. When asked for their specialty/most selling dish, we were directed towards Cheese Crumb Chicken and it was evident as to why. Chicken wrapped in crumbs, baked, sliced and topped with generous amount of cheese just took us to another level of cheesiness!

Things got cheesier with Mascarpone Brownie! Light, chocolatey and brownie :D! With this, I called it a day while my friends went on for another dessert.

Being at the heart of the city means, keeping up with the competition is important. While most of the items that we tried turned out to be good, there are a few things (like consistency in-between same orders, flavors of few mocktails, and type of ingredients in some of the dishes) they need to work on. Service can be improved in terms of quickness and approach to the customers. If they figure these things out, the place will pick up in the coming days! I’d definitely be back for freakshakes and pasta 🙂

Three Dots & A Dash

We are in seventh heaven to blog about this alluring rooftop restaurant named THREE DOTS AND A DASH located on the 100 ft road, Indiranagar. Three Dots & A Dash is one of a kind restaurant & themed bar to offer Tiki Cocktails which is burst of flavors and dishes which makes everyone drool. Wondering what does three dots and dash spell? Well, it stands for VICTORY 🙂

We were here to try some of the best ‘tiki cocktails’ and other dishes served in town. This restaurant is split into two level seating. We chose to sit on the rooftop and just fell in love with the ambiance.

Tiki cocktails started with Dead Reckoning, Pineapple Paradise, and Forbidden Island. Dead Reckoning is served in a skull glass consisting of wine, white rum, spice syrup and hints of maple and vanilla.

Pineapple Paradise is another tiki cocktail served in pineapple fruit made up of White Rum, Caribbean Rum of Coconut flavor and pineapple juice. The smoky dry ice adds up to the presentation.

As you sip down Forbidden fruit you get flavours of vodka, white rum, gin and  a couple more spirits. Orchid adds up to the beauty of the drink. A must-try cocktail.  All tiki cocktails are as innovative as they sound with some Indian touch to it. The presentation of the drinks is top notch and is a feast for eyes.

Up next was starters – starting with Polynesian baked Poisson, marinated fish wrapped in banana leaf giving it a unique taste. The fish was cooked perfectly with right spices. It was juicy and just melts in the mouth.

The Classic In-house nachos were crispy, topped with kidney beans, tomato salsa, melting cheese and cream went hand-in-hand with it.

Herb Cheese Stuffed Mushroom took the stuffing to a whole new level, mushrooms were fried perfectly. The crunchy base and cheese made it even better!

Pan-Seared Pepper Coconut Chicken reminded me of days we spent in Kerala. One of the best combination of coconut, chicken, and pepper I’ve come across.

The main course consisted of  Spinach Stuffed Cottage Cheese Steak which was served with mashed potato, saffron glazed pineapple & carrots.

Fried Rice in Pineapple filled with colorful veggies, corn and pineapple with two types of sauces was one of the most innovative dishes that we had here.

Wrapped the lunch with Chocolate brownie topped with cherries, slices of apple, banana,  and whipped cream. Lip smacking dessert it was *-*
