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 🙂

Belgi-yumm Waffles at Waffle Walle

Waffle is one thing we never got to try, not until we visited WAFFLE WALLE. Expectations are set to high when you know the person running the show has travelled places to perfect the art of preparing waffles. We had varieties of waffles to try and our expectations were held high from the moment we had the first bite of classic waffle till the last sip of the Belgian hot chocolate drink.

Before starting, we got a chance to know few things about types of Waffles and the way they are prepared around the world from Chetan. The widely known types of waffles are Brussels and Liege. Brussels is soft based waffle made from batter, easier to eat and holds lots of toppings while Liege is little denser made of dough, caramelised sugar and is a bit on the chewy side.

Simple start with Classic Waffles, Brussels topped with ice-cream and whipped cream. The moment we bit, whole world slowed down for a moment! Perfectly baked and the sweet factor is just right to munch more of it.

Up next, we tried Indulgence and Yummy Tummy, which are Liege based. Indulgence liege is placed with one huge scoop vanilla ice-cream, pockets filled with strawberries and topped with chocolate sauce & sprinkled sugar.

Yummy Tummy fills you up because of the toppings – slices of fresh banana, whipped cream and Nutella (who doesn’t love Nutella, right?) Just took us to a whole new level *-*

Just when we thought could it be any better? Blueberry Exotic was served.  Fresh Blueberries, blueberry preserve, vanilla ice-cream topped with maple syrup surely got our taste buds excited.

This was entirely customised for our love towards caramel. It feels great when a simple dish can give so much happiness. Whipped cream and caramel, what could go wrong?

After a long list of amazing waffles, we tried their special Brownie Delight and Belgian Hot Chocolate. Eggless Brownie served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and drizzled with powdered sugar, hot chocolate sauce which glides down making a way for the ice-cream to stand out.

Belgian Hot Chocolate had a twist – It was a little spicy, which left a slight impact as it flew down the throat when sipped. The way of dipping dark chocolate into the drink and waiting for it melt was a feast to our eyes.

The chocolate sauce is prepared in-house, hence, intensely flavoured. Each ingredient blends with other amazingly without overpowering. One of the keynotes, all the waffles are same at the base, it’s up to us to come up with a combination and try a new waffle! We just loved it. Waffle Walle has set the level so high. Can’t guess if we will find another store which can serve such lip-smacking waffles 🙂

Will surely be back for more as soon as possible! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you’re in and around Bannerghatta. If you’re far from Bannerghatta, then, dress-up and get waffled soon 😀 Three cheers to Chetan and the happy helpers there 🙂

Address – Ground Floor, Royal Meenakshi Mall, Bannerghatta Road, Bengaluru.
