An Exotic Rooftop Lunching @ Mangosteen Cafe, Indore
Ever wanted to go at a rooftop dine out with your friends just to chill, eat & mingle, that too in an organic environment? How fulfilling will it be to one’s desire of spending the best quality time with their loved ones !
Mangosteen Cafe is owned by Mr. Saurabh Shrivastava who firmly believes in “Organic Culture” thus promotes The Five Organic Senses i.e. “See, Smell, Touch, Taste &, Hear” by providing a comforting and a loving gesture to them with an attractive ambience, lively aroma, comfortable surroundings, exotic cuisine & delightful music !
The place is recently renovated at its best possible way followed by some new additions to the menu. Few play-tables such as Ludo & Chess are added along with brand new graffiti designs on the shutter outside. Also they provide a rentable co-working space for personal and conference purposes. Another USP of this place includes the fitness room made for Zumba practices and daily workout to fulfill your fitness OCDs.
This place never disappoints one in serving unique and exotic dishes as the sense of good food is seen with the staff and the owner himself. The new add-ons in their menu are as follows :
Sicilian Pizza :
The combination of sautéed mushrooms & onions, spread over the spiced up saucy crust and baked after adding lots and lots of cheese to it. This enormously cheesy preparation will definitely make you wonder how a few veggies over a wheat crust can taste so outstanding !
Roses are Red, Pizza Sauce is Too. I ordered a large, and None of it’s for You !
Suggestion : Could be a little less spicy and oily too !
Laksa Curry :
This beautiful serve will definitely make your taste buds dance with happiness as the flavours of the curry along with the steamed rice were an extreme satisfaction to one’s mouth. The soupy texture of the curry makes it an excellent to-go with the steamed rice and the strong flavours makes it an appropriate dish to try in these winters !
Suggestion : Could be served in an enclosed container so that it stays warm for long time.
Chicken Chimi Churri :
Best possible explanation to this serve could be, juicy roasted chicken seekhs balanced over a mountain of chopped lettuce, dressed with olives, mushrooms and homemade sauce. The marinated chicken was so soft and flavorous that it does not need accomplishment. Again an excellent preparation, strongly recommended for non-vegetarians !
Suggestion : Don’t waste time in clicking pictures of this dish as it tastes best only when consumed hot and fresh.
Spanish Omelette + Toast + Salad :
You will find this under “Breakfast” section and is a recommended preparation for all the eggetarians. A huge omelette along with perfectly baked bread toasts is a healthy option for breakfast and light hunger solution. The simple salted salad had olives, lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber sprinkled with black pepper.
Suggestion : The bread could be a little more crispier, can be accompanied with fresh orange juice.
Dal-Makhni Combo :
Ironically the most common dish found in any restaurant or Dhabha is the rarest to be found in the cafés. This dal makhni combo is one of them, dense creamy black-dal along with home-like parathas is a recommended preparation of this place. The combo includes plain salted onion salad may be in order to complete the main course meal.
Suggestion : Butter on the Parathas & a small serve of steamed rice would compliment the combo perfectly !
Barbaresca Pasta :
White and Red sauce pastas are too mainstream, therefore this barbaresca pasta is a must try out of this place. One of its kind, creamy and certainly the yummiest pasta in their menu. True Italian flavours with chopped veggies and grated cheese is the reason you cannot resist looking at it !
Eat Pasta Run Fasta !
Suggestion : This was a perfect serve, Barbaresca Risotto is also highly recommended.
Chicken Mushroom Leek Potpie :
Small chicken pieces baked in cheesy white sauce topped with small round bread-like chips served along with a potato pie. Yes, a “Potato pie” ! As stated before, this is one of their newest and unique ad-on to the menu, this preparation is a definite recommendation for everyone !
Suggestion : To be consumed hot, because the potato pie soon becomes soggy.
Hummus with Pita Bread :
Heart shaped pita breads with yummy hummus sauce and creamy salad on the side, this hummus-pita combo is always liked by hummus & pita lovers. Hummus is beautifully dressed with roasted garlic along with dried mushrooms.
Suggestion : Perfect combination, no changes needed to be done.
Pancake with Maple Syrup :
Beautifully dressed and artistically presented soft pancakes and maple syrup is an idle dessert from their menu. Served along with fresh cut fruits and homemade whipped cream, this serve gives a perfect termination to your meal.
Suggestion : Could be served warm so that the butter melts over it. Honey could be an add-on.
Waffle with Blueberry Jam :
This preparation will jam your eyes into the looks of presentation of the dessert. Perfectly crisped waffles served along with homemade Blueberry jam will make you call it “Woah-ffles” instead of waffles.
Waffles are just pancakes with Abs !
Suggestion : To be consumed when warm, Honey could be an add-on.
