Mumbaigloss was invited for a food tasting session at Eat Around The Corner in Pali Hill where I tried some delicious food like brown rice risotto, tapas platter, Churros, etc. last week. The local food lovers frequent this place often as it provides a perfect ambience based on European style café and bakery in this L shaped restaurant. Mosaic mirror deco, black murals over white walls makes this place look very interesting. The seating is cozy. There plus points are lite bites which aren’t heavy on your palate. You may order soups, salads, burgers, pizza, pastas, etc. without worrying if it will affect your health. This place is more popular for its breakfast options. Valet is available. The service was good and the waiting staff was knowledgeable. They knew about the food being served and answered all my queries politely. I was accompanied by other food gourmands so maybe they were well prepared.

Tapas platter

We were cordially seated by our host in the outdoor seating area and offered the drinks menu. I was a little disappointed with the limited menu but eventually I settled for a virgin mojito. The evening of fun and food started with a Tapas Platter served with Hummus, Greek Yogurt (cucumber & mint flavour), Baba Ganoush (roast eggplant salsa) and Taboulleh (chopped parsley with broken wheat, lemon and olive oil dressing). I love hummus and Baba Ganoush and simply loved it as a quick bite. The waiting staff ensured they got us brown bread to make it even healthier.

Spinach and feta cheese empanada

Next came Empanada stuffed with spinach and feta cheese. I wish there was more feta in the Empanada otherwise it was ok. Brown rice risotto with roasted squash and arugula had beautiful flavours and was certainly more textured because of brown rice. It was pretty filling. The star of the evening, Penne Alfredo (white sauce) with broccoli and herb crusted chicken was bursting with mouth-watering parmesan cheese flavour. Generous chicken pieces ensured the perfect balance of protein and carbs in this dish. Oregano, basil and thyme were balanced out with the creaminess of the Alfredo sauce.

Penne Alfredo

I am not a bread person so maybe Cottage cheese Cubano and grilled chicken Cubano didn’t score very well with me. But those who love their sandwiches might like these healthy Cubanos made with bell peppers, aubergine, caramelized onions, and grilled chicken breast.

Towards the end, we were served Churros with cinnamon sugar and chocolate sauce. They were soft, chewy bundle of happiness. Went very well with chocolate sauce. Of course, this doesn’t come under healthy eating, like any other dessert but I am glad that good quality Churros are available in Mumbai which are street food regular in Europe.

Churros

I just had a peek into their menu and can safely say that average meal for two will cost anywhere between Rs. 1000 to 1500. They recently hosted a Spanish Night Market last week and the concept of eating and shopping under one roof sounded great to me. It’s unfortunate I couldn’t visit them due to prior commitments.

Will I go there again? Definitely, as I plan to eat a sumptuous breakfast on one of the coming weekends at their happy little joint.
