I had gone to Pondicherry with my friends a few days back and we went to this cute little cafe in Bussy street. The dishes that we ordered are as follows.
This dish was given as a complimentary and as a starter. The taste was really fresh and it really cleansed our palates for our next dishes.
To put it in simple words, it was potato on a stick. It tasted good but could have been better with a bit more salt. My personal opinion is that the number of pieces served can be reduced as it was really heavy.
The buttermilk fried chicken was extremely delicious!!! The exterior was really crispy and the inside was really soft and tender and it was served with a sweet chili dip. This was my favourite among all the starters served. I highly recommend you all to try this.
We did not take a photo of the tempura prawns on its own. The photo shown here has the buttermilk chicken in it as well. The dish was really good with the light and airy batter and the plump prawns. This too was served with a sweet chili dip but I felt that it could have been served with a spicy dip as the dish itself lacks spice.
The masala fried paneer was extremely yum with the tangy sauce and the soft paneer. I highly recommend this dish for all the vegetarians out there.
We started our main course with Cajun fish with rice and sautéed vegetables. I personally liked only the fish and not the rice and vegetables. The dish had more rice than the fish and was not what I had expected. I also would have preferred a full slice of the fish and not just two small pieces.
The second main dish that we ordered was the Braised chicken with mashed potatoes. I really did not like this dish. There is nothing much to say about it.
I am a hard core dessert person and I never end my meal without something sweet. This was the perfect way to end our elaborate meal. The brownie was really soft and the combination of it and the ice cream was definitely divine. I recommend you all to try this as well.
Overall a great experience and I will definitely visit again if I go to Pondicherry.
PS: I borrowed this book from a friend and read it and hence I could not take a picture. The picture I have used here is from a website named carousell.ph . I am attaching the link here for reference: https://www.carousell.ph/p/man-woman-and-child-by-erich-segal-142406527/ This is the first post of romance genre in my feed. So as promised, I have switched from my go-to genre which happens to be psychological and mystery thrillers. Okay now, so let’s dive into the review. Man, woman and child is an intense family drama that revolves around love, passion and faithfulness. Bob and Sheila Beckwith, who are the man and woman as the title says have everything that everyone envies. Love!! They are a happily married couple who have two daughters and live a peaceful and happy life. Bob loves his family with all his heart and soul.
Just when everything seemed to be perfect, one phone call changes everything. A phone call that tells Bob that he has a son. Memories come flooding back to Bob on how he had been unfaithful to Sheila ten years prior. Now that the truth was out in the open, will the couple stay together? What happens to the family? Read the book to find out more. The author must have had some kind of magical powers as each and every word written in the book makes you feel the pain the couple undergoes. The emotion conveyed is intense and maybe some readers out there would definitely shed a drop or two. A must read book for all bibliophiles out there. One thing that really shocked me was the fact that I couldn’t find any pictures of this book on Instagram. This is one of the author’s best works in par with his famous ‘ Love story’ (will post my review later) and yet, this was the situation. This was another fact that prompted me to post a review on this book as I really felt that this gem should be known to all my fellow book lovers out there. My rating: 5/5 For those who have read this book, do let me know your perspectives in the comments below.
