Appetiso : Appetising to the MECHO in me 

If ghosts exist –  After my worldly affairs come to an end, I would definitely apply to be a MECHO BHOOT. The GHOST obsessed with eating fish. They go lurking around homes in search of the smell of FISH and steals them. Considering job applications are a thing in afterlife,  I would a perfect fit –  I absolutely love fish, lurking can be a hobby considering it has a kinda detective note (I’m a fan of detective novels & movies)  and stealing definitely has a trill element.

Coming to this life, the budding Mecho Bhoot in me was satiated by the Good Old Fish and Chips at Appetiso.  It had about 200gms of pure, fresh, juicy basa and a crisp exterior.  This was pure love. #MustTry

Appetiso is a brand selling hygienic fried food with kiosks located at Kasba & Golpark. I thank Akriti Shanghavi Arora,  the owner for her hospitality.

I also liked the fish with mustard sauce. Thick fish fries with some tangy mustard was blissful.  The quantity was quite decent.

What I loved about  Appetiso is that the fries weren’t heavy on the stomach.  And they were cooked in excellent quality oil. The batter used for frying ended up making the fries tasty but wasn’t too overbearing. The proportion of fish/meat to batter was suitable. 

I also quite liked the chicken fingers & french fries. They came in amply quantity and the packaging was travel friendly.

The best part – home delivery via Zomato & Swiggy.  I’m going to order some fish soon to go with my Big Bang Theory binge watching. Thanks Atreya Paul & Riti Jinia for the invitation.

Chocolate, Cheese, Coffee – 3CFestival at Scarlet, Aauris

Boutique Hotel Aauris, located at 4, Robinson St, has launched a deliciously unique festival called “3C – Chocolate, Cheese and Coffee” at its well-known patisserie, Scarlet. The three staple favourites of all foodies will find expression in an innovative dessert menu that Executive Chef Sujit Mondale has prepared keeping in mind today’s experimental audience ready to try new combinations. 

Talking about his inspiration, Chef Mondal says, “We all love chocolate, cheese and coffee. Think of anything sinfully indulgent and you will to think of chocolate and cheese. I wanted to play with these ingredients and create something refreshing yet great to taste that would make everyone go wow.  The focus of Scarlet at the moment is all about delivering the most elevated valuable patisserie experience to the guests.” 

With ideation, passion and implementation in perfect balance, Chef Mondale blends subtle flavours and richness of the ingredients for a smooth gastronomic experience at the 3C Festival. The desserts are PLAIN WOW .. 

I began my afternoon of indulgence with some Dulce de leche caramel cheesecake ( ₹ 350 ) Cheesecake entwined with caramel & dulce de leche. Popular in Latin American Countries dulce de keche is a confectiom prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a substance that literally translates to “candy [made] of milk” .
I also got to try the Intense trio of choco mousse (#MustTry) (₹ 350 ) The mousse in this cake is as smooth as silk and has a surprise hint of nut. Tease the tastebuds with this rich, multi-textured chocolate dessert. 

I paired my yumilicious cakes with some Thai Iced Coffee (#MustTry) ( ₹ 150 ). An innovative cold coffee with cardamom & almond.

Everyone knows about the Little Black Dress. Now meet the Little Black Dress Chocolate Cake ( ₹ 350) that is as good to look at as it is good to taste. This is one of those reliable cakes – simple yet sexy – that will wow everyone, every time.

You can also find some attractive tarts and cupcakes if you are in the mood for something lighter.

Available from July 20 to August 20, the 3C Festival will come at a pocket pinch of INR 350 plus taxes for one person. But it’s impossible to finish one cake on your own.
