Chaos Free Indulgence At Global Chaos Mumbai | Food Review
We almost missed the entrance to Global Chaos Kitchen & Bar when we reached here for reviewing their All Day Cafe menu. It is bang opposite Mumbai University and you have to keep an eye out for the small door. Inside, the ground floor is equally small but once you go up the stairs, you see a spacious restaurant open up, a rarity in Mumbai. Simple clean decor welcomed us. We did wonder about the name for a bit but then browsing through their extensive menu with choices from all over the globe explained the reason easily :)
The All Day Cafe menu takes the same spirit forward and provides a number of choices in terms of waffles, pancakes, sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, pasta and beverages! Ask the staff to suggest dishes as per your preference, they would gladly and politely assist or if you already know what you are gonna like then go ahead and order as we did. Prices are a bit on the higher side but quality & quantity are good and don't forget the prima donna location it is situated in.
We started off with fruit juices and fresh lime soda for beverages as wanted to keep space for food and not fill it up with shakes and such, even though they all look tantalizing (Nutella Shake, I have my eyes on you :D)
First up was Classic Three Cheese Sandwich with a concentrated dose of Cheddar, Parmesan & Mozzarella cheeses for every cheese lover out there (and seriously, who isn't one :D) I was a bit worried that it might be a bit salty as I have seen, sometimes, some dishes with too much cheese blend turn out saltier. Hallelujah, this wasn't! What a relief :) Oh and the cheese blend had a smokey fried crunch, isn't that just swell!
My favorite was up next, Moroccan Pesto Paneer Panini, pretty self-explanatory there :D Scrambled Paneer with Moroccan Pesto in soft Panini bread, Pesto was a bit tangy which I guess is the Moroccan part coming to fore, yet every bit as refreshing as I love my Pesto to be. Absolutely smashing. Both the sandwich and Panini were served with fries that were pretty standard. Dip in ketchup and binge on.
Veg Fusilli in Creamy Mushroom Sauce Pasta was our final indulgence, very creamy, very mushroomy, very filling and very yummy. Would love a bit more exotic veggies but no complaints on its own, a dish worth having any time of the day. All the dishes are quite filling for one hungry person and a Panini & a Pasta would fill up even a hulk level hungry hippo like me (for both lunch and dinner) :D
Protesting tummy or not, Richa will not leave a meal without having a dessert, so goes the saying :P So had to try out the White Chocolate & Raspberry Mousse in the end, very soft and creamy, with the raspberry part not being overwhelmingly tangy, and edible flowers on the plate made the presentation pop too.
So the million dollar question remains. Will I walk in here when I am in the area?
And the absolute chaos-free answer to that is, why indeed Sir, I will :)
