We were pleasantly surprised at the depth of detailing as we entered the [V] Spot Cafe + Bar, a new hot destination in G-Town. From the menu, to the napkins, carry bag, music and the interiors everything has an identity which immediately strikes a chord with its target segment – The urban youth.
We made ourselves comfortable in the relaxed open area given the ideal breeze while summers were still to set-in. The menu had interesting sounding fusion dishes and drinks like Strip Tease, Butter Chicken Khichdi, Sheela’s Jawani, Rose Mary Marlo, KLPD amongst others.
Mamma Mia (195) was perfectly fried boneless chunk of chicken which went great with Swarg (230; Lemongrass, melon, vodka and ginger-ale based cocktail). Other innovative virgin drinks like Pannigraphy (120; lime, basil and lemongrass), golgappa water flavoured Tapori Kicks (120; mint, spices, coriander) kept us occupied us the whole evening and kept us looking forward to the next one. Push ball table game and dart board made us go back to our college days and gave us an adrenaline rush.
La Bomba (195) is another interesting Mexican starter platter with Nachos, rice cakes and empanadas served with freshly made salsa and garlic aioli but the Bali Fish Satay (265) was a little over fried, and the Love me Lava (165) was nice but ice-cream on top had become too soft by the time it hit our table.
Butter Chicken Pizza (245) is no gourmet meal but none-the-less it is comfort food at its best. My Indian palate always longs for the butter chicken and the junkie part looks at Pizza; this was a marriage made in heaven.
The Video Booth is another interesting concept where in front of live cameras one can do a little act and if selected it is telecasted on Channel [V]. The service is efficient, servers well trained to serve with a smile, enough space to strike a conversation without being over heard, noise level just right and most importantly priced right; no doubt it has more reasons than one for the youngsters to switch over from the notorious MG Road outlets to this fun joint.
