Food Mill, Cyber City, Gurgaon
[Rated: 2/5]
The sun never sets in Gurgaon. Numerous 24-hour call centers ensure life goes on 24×7. Realizing the potential here, Food Mill has come up with the first 24×7 restaurant in the city. The concept is brilliant, though I wish the food matched.
The name ‘Mill’ gives one an impression of a huge place, but it turned out to be a modest 20-seater restaurant with an in-house bakery. Uncomfortable seating, tardy service and food that didn’t meet expectations spoilt the experience despite my liking the concept and the innovative menu.
The Fattoush salad served along with the Shawarma wasn’t a Fattoush (No pita bread) and the chicken in the Shawarma (Rs225) had hardened due to over cooking. The Passion Fruit, Mint & Honey Juice (Rs135) was overdosed with honey and the glass was sticky too. I was overjoyed to see the All American Tenderloin Hamburger (Rs 255) on the menu, which is otherwise difficult to find in Gurgaon. My joy was short-lived as the patty was dry and lacked seasoning. The dominant flavor was of the omelet present within the burger. The Doughnut (Rs 45) was chewy enough to make a bagel proud. The Grilled Chicken topped with Peri Perisauce (Rs 110) was just as tangy and hot as I would have liked it to be but the chicken left much to be desired as it was a little raw
We enjoyed the thin crust Greek Pizza (Rs 195) which was perfectly cooked in a wood fired oven. The Bean Sprout Salad (Rs 155) served with sweet chili dressing and The Broken Brownie shake (Rs135) were also nice, but the Junk Food Platter (Rs 125) was our discovery of the day. It consisted of an Ice-cream Shake, Ice-cream Sandwiches, Rice Crispies, White Chocolate Muffins, Jam Sandwich and a Chocolate Muffin. Even if one ignored the ordinary muffins it was a steal at the price. I particularly liked the well-made shake and Ice-cream sandwiches served in the platter.
By the time the post went to print, I am told Food Mill has discontinued the Junk Food platter, the only saving grace at the restaurant.
To conclude I love the concept but Food Mill has a fair distance to travel before it is able to deliver on its promises.
