Ultimate Destination For Delicious Healthy Food | Garde Manger Cafe | Food Review

Healthy Food. Two words usually associated with bland, tasteless food, definitely not the first choice for a hardcore foodie. Images of boiled chickpeas, steamed broccoli doing the dance in front of your eyes yet? Now what if a healthy food place opened up with every bit as tasty and gourmet food offerings as any fine-dine place of repute?

That's what Garde Manger presents-a bountiful menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and much more, without compromising on a single aspect, be it taste, quality, presentation or service. Cozy place with wonderful staff and innovative dishes in ample quantity, reasonable prices, an honor to be here for a review tasting session.

We started with very flavorful Roasted Tomato and Basil soup, real smokey textures and flavors coming through,

Among salads, a must-have is a twist on aamchi Bhel Pure- Mumbai Local salad with Chick Peas, Cottage Cheese, Onion, Tomato, Puffed Rice, Arugula, Date-Tamarind and Mint Chutney, wish our day started with this one everyday,

Thai food lovers must try sweet-spicy-sour-crunchy Som Tam Salad with Raw Papaya, Carrot, English Cucumber, French Beans, Sweet Chilli Dressing, Thai Bud Chilli and Crushed Peanuts,

Want a kick of flavors on a stick? Go for fresh Italian Caprese with Bocconcini Cheese, Cherry Tomatoes, Fresh Basil Leaves, Pesto  and Balsamic Reduction, something we had to ask for a second round too, it is just that good, the density of cheese, the tanginess of tomatoes and a whole lot more!

My first personal favorite is Mezze Platter with Hummus, Cous Cous Tabbouleh, Tahini Yoghurt, Whole Wheat Pita Chips and Grilled Multigrain Panini, textures and flavors galore, all cooling for the stomach,

We love Poha for breakfast and a healthier contemporary twist to the same comes with Cous Cous Upma Desi Style, with mustard, curry leaves and the like enticing us, we loved it so much, got some home for noshing on it later :D

Black Rice Salad utilizes the nutrients powerhouse Black Rice wonderfully with Bell Pepper, Tomato, Red Cabbage, Lemon Vinaigrette, Caper and Green Olives giving it the appropriate sour-crunchy zest,

Children would especially love the Zoodles Salad with Zucchini & Carrot Noodles served with Arrabiata Sauce, spicy and feels like very thinly sliced spaghetti, a complete meal for anyone,

Being a Mezze Platter lover, the Lebanese Grilled Veg sandwich was the apt choice for me with Grilled Veggies, Hummus and Tahini Curd Sauce playing hide and seek on my taste-buds,

For those wanting something delicious to drink without piling on the calories, go for delicious and dense Muesli Peanut with Peanuts butter, Muesli, Digestive Biscuit, Honey and Soya Milk,

Another lovely smoothie we had was Quinoa Banana with Quinoa, Soya Milk, Dried Figs, Banana, Almond and Cashew Nuts, everything fresh and pure, no added flavors or sugar, just what the doctor ordered!

For me, having a sweet jaw, the true test of any place lies in its dessert offerings and we again loved all that we had in this category-

Creamy Fresh Fruit Popsicles (Strawberry and Chocolate flavors), perfect way to turn into a child with beautiful popsicles with little fruity bits hidden inside,

Ever heard of a chickpeas based pie? Grande Manger has successfully concocted a delicious melt in mouth Chick Peas Walnut Banana Pie that merits at least 3 repeat rounds!

And the absolute star was Multi Grain Waffles Bar Belgian Chocolate with dark chocolate, milk chocolate and caramel blending together with soft waffle to create what can only be termed as foodgasmic :D

None of the praise is a hyperbole, Garde Manger truly deserves repeat visits, in fact we so loved this place that we are going for a repeat lunch tomorrow itself, and I hope every foodie in Mumbai does so soon :)
