On my most recent trip to CBT, I took my brother who was in town visiting. We were the first people to arrive for the lunch sitting but a few tables filled up after we had started eating.
I adore the copper interior details along with bursts of bright colors and a dizzying black and white flooring. This time there were dream catchers hanging in the trees near our table. As we were being seated i noticed a small Cath Kidston style floral back pack on our table which contained our cutlery, serviette and water glass.
Out of the 6 they served 3 were vegetarian, a yuzu masala taco, peanut butter & jelly paneer, quirky & clever but not my cup of tea and game of corns, a corn curd cutlet with a goji berry chutney topped with a dot of kewpie mayo, surrounded by actual popcorn. The 3 non veg dishes included meat-a-licious grilled Australian lamp chops with a masala sauce, just slider – two chicken seekh kebeb sliders with jalapenos and caramelized onions served on an uber cute lego set made to look like McDonalds! I love the creativity and tongue-in-cheek approach as well as pulliinji; South Indian style ginger prawns, made crunchy due to caramelized palm sugar and topped with a crisp curry leaf.
However the mains aka large plates were yet to arrive. 😞 Luckily there were only 4 of them. But not only do they serve up 4 mains, they also come with carbs. Rice, bread, you name it, there was lots of it.
Out of the chickpea curry, a simmering steamed in a bag seabass, a sweet on the palate butter chicken and a dum aloo, the fish and the potatoes dishes stood out for us. The fish was impressive as it wasn’t overcooked at all therefore the texture was perfect and the dum aloo as the flavoring was so addictive without being overly spicy.
Once the mains were cleared away out came the dessert! Two of them, relatively small looking to our approval. Milk & cookies which consisted of a mawa (vanilla) cake, burnt banana with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and tiny heart biscuits. But the winner of the two was the tropical fruit cornetto’s layered with mango and pineapple sorbet and topped with coconut whipped cream. A heavenly combination.
The service was fantastic as usual and I can’t recommend this experience enough. My brother who was visiting was particularly impressed. What I love about CBT is that they change the menu every season and add new and exciting dishes. Not to mention the uber hip ambiance due to the house music mix being played in the background.
