Food – 5 stars
Every item we tasted was delicious while the use of fresh flavours and ingredients came through so beautifully in all the dishes.
We started off with their Gilmore Granola (Rs 1,500-Large/Rs 750-Small). This Coffee and Cardamom infused granola has the perfect blend of toasted oats, chewy dates and sultanas along with sesame, pumpkin kernels and banana coins.
One of our absolute favourites was the simple yet flavourful Harley Quinoa (Rs 750). This salad with a base of quinoa coupled with sweet and juicy cubes of mango, kidney beans and corn as well as capsicum, onion and fresh coriander is really special. Even though not intended there were some pretty strong Mexican inspired flavour notes which made for a fine salad.
As much as it is the pork meatballs that stand out in their Porky's Meatballs (Rs 1,150) it is the Thai-inspired sauce that marries every aspect of this dish. The simple Japanese Sticky Rice and the fresh tomato and cucumber salad create a warm and fresh feel to this bowl of deliciousness.
Another of our favourites was the Han Roll-O (Rs 1,000). First of all, the portions come with six large rice paper rolls – which is a bonus while these delicious rolls are stuffed with strips of chicken, carrot, bell peppers, zucchini, coriander and mint – the cherry on the cake so to speak was the Chilli Mango-Hini dip. This spicy, sweet and sour dip was lip smacking and was the ideal accompaniment to the rolls.
Their dessert option on the day we tried out their goodies was the simple yet Milo filled Milo Bliss Balls (Rs 550). A portion contains 15 pieces and they are coated with coconut – what’s not to love!
What we recommend: Han Roll-O and Harley Quinoa
