My fav girls in town and I hopped in at Olive beach on a Monday morning to have a super lazy lunch. Restaurant week is on these days and we just love the concept. INR 750 per person without taxes for a stunning menu and the chance to chit chat with Manu Chandra made it a steal deal. We were really happy to notice that vegetarians are very well taken care of. Lip smacking stuff. Here is all that we all ate :) We is this- I love this picture of us. Taken my Monika's husband N on Onam where she cooked up a storm and we all looked beautiful <3.
So lets get back to all the lovely food.
This one is a workday fix. Excellent combination of grape juice, olives, apples and kiwi.
Aah the beautiful olive bread, whole wheat bread, focaccia and lavash.
This was such a hearty soup. Cooked with so much love and care. We loved it.It has sauteed bacon, scallion, carrots and sweet corn.
Ohhh the traditional greens get a great packaging and super kick ass style. The red onion salad on top was like sealing the deal. Slurrppppp.
Spinach, mustard, amarnath and radish leaves dauted with garlic, almonds and feta wrapped in filo and baked. Served with tomato and onion salad.
Least favorite but I am not complaining.
With apple straws, pomegranate, walnuts in a hummus yogurt dressing.
More traditional form the Gnocchi where it is baked and finished with a sauce and veggies. Stunner.
with grilled asparagus, caramelized mushrooms and artichoke.
I came to know that the crust was to die for and so was the fish. Since I dont eat it, I dont have much to add :)
Parmesan crusted baked fish with duxelle and sauce romesco.
Ohhh so creamy, ohh so perfect. I was in love with the Risotto.
with white wine soaked pearl onions, green peas and fondant potato.
Bestest part now :D The dessert *drum roll please.
Ohhhh the beautiful tart with a very subtle seasoned apple with cream cheese mousse and the praline Ice cream. We were fighting for it :D Slurrppp.
Green Apple jam, candied apples, cream cheese mousse, Praline ice cream.
The warmth of the pudding and the frangipane are a marriage made in heaven. Such a delight was this one too.
Frangipane, cherry compote and vanilla gelati.
I love lemon but daymn this was so damn tart. The lemon sable and ice cream were to die for nontheless :)
Warm citrus cake, vanilla sauce and lemon sable.
