After almost months this place opened its door , today I got the chance to visit this place, though I had been eyeing this place for a very long time while parking in the parking in front.
Everything about this place is outstanding and the vibes of this place is really very positive with so much light and colors around. It’s a soulful place. We were here in the afternoon so really can’t get on to the terrace but 1st floor has got a very nice spacious and vibrant sitting which is absolutely perfect for group get togethers.
Welcome shots of chocolate gave a sweet welcome to kick start our foodie experience at Philtre and this was definitely a sugar rush.
Moving to Food, we placed an order for some smoothies and Mocktail , everything that I was trying for the first time.
# Kullad Iced Tea : We all had Kullad wali chai so when I saw this on the menu , I was super kicked to order it. And the tea concoction was outstanding, super chilled and amazingly refreshing just the perfect thing for the Summers.
# Mango and Elderflower : whenever I see Mango on the menu as the name of dish or the ingredient then the first question is ” is it real Mango ? , If yes I am game to order and if it’s puree or syrup I don’t even think of it. So this one has real Mango. Now edlerflowe as an ingredient in my drinks I had for the first time so but obious I will look for details on it , Elderflower cordial is a soft drink made largely from a refined sugar and water solution and uses the flowers of the European elderberry. And let me say it did tasted yummm may be more because of the health benefits.
Coco laugh : Another of my favorite ingredient and this one was mixed with kafir lime so definitely a smoothie with a twist. It was different if not exceptionally good.
Now moving on to starters , again a delicious culinary trip to a lot of places with an amazing assortment of ingredients.
Crispy Beetroot Coriander hummus Avocado Jhalmuri : As something from East but with a twist. Probably one of the best thing to have with drinks, that’s light , spicy crispy, crunchy and off course very very tasty. The beetroot is made into a pakoda that’s very very crispy. And the Jhalmuri style bhel stands out definitely.
Chettinad Paneer Tikka Coconut pepper dust Bhoot Jhulakia Sause : if you didn’t find your paneer Tikka spicy or it taste bland wherever you had been having it then this is the place to go for, a retreat with a very well marinated spiced till within , this is one that’s the best. And it’s spicy for sure.
#Rajma galouti Ulta Tawa parantha Nacho achari mayo : what I really liked about the menu of this place is that it’s not using fancy names rather it’s name has all the info one needs to order a dish , including the sauce or dips that are being served , now read this dish it gives a complete description on what it is – Rajma galouti Ulta Tawa parantha Nacho achari mayo. Melt in mouth galouti that comes in serving of 5 galouti and is a good pick
Chole Chawal bites assorted green nest : A dish looks better when the dish it is served in supports the theme and presentation and this one was bang on. Now who would want to have chole chawal in starters, try this and you might change your mind. The crispy Palak leaves does add to the crunch.
Soya Nanlets : Soya is vegetarians chicken and this place proves it with this amazing and perfectly made Soya chaap tikka.
Moving on to Main course, as I was already full so hardly had any space for Food, but this one I couldn’t say no to .
Mushroom Asparagus roast Malaya curry Kerala Parota : This is made in coconut based curry this is very flavorsome curry dish that is relished well with nicely made Kerala paronta.
A place should be defined by the Dessert that they serve , and this place rocked with every option which was served to us.
Gulab Jamun Doughnuts : This place has flared the art of fusion really well and gulab jamun an Indian desert was sandwiched with ice cream within the doughnut. And this sweet and soft combination with the cool or cream of ice cream made it taste very yummy.
Kulfi Faluda , Fresh fruits , Malai peda Pan spheres: As I said the menu offers complete description in the name itself. Freshly cut fruits served with the kulfi circles on a bed of Faluda with a peda was delicious and tasty.
Coconut Cookie shots with Chocolate bombs : As goes the name this was a loaded dessert with coconut cookies shots and the chocolate bomb had a magic pops as the surprise inside taking us to the childhood memories. An after effect of magic pops crackling on the tongue and if you have water over it this popping is further intensified. A must try fun dessert
Overall had an amazing vegetarian experience at Philtre and it’s a pure diners delight. Highly recommended for fun gathering with fun food.
